Rams smack saints 27-9; The Good, Bad and Ugly

The Rams pushed their record to 2-0 today, taking advantage of an early injury to Drew Brees and a very lucky botched call that nullified a new orleans defensive touchdown, winning their home opener going away by a score of 27-9. The Rams overcame a horrific performance by their red zone offense in the first half and a slow start offensively in the second half to wear the Brees-less saints down and come away with a solid win. In the second quarter, with the Rams knocking on the door and in certain field goal range, immediately following the Blythe injury, Demby got beat, Goff got clobbered as he threw and the refs called an incomplete pass. The call was clearly blown and as a result, the cam jordan 87 yard return for a td was wiped off the board since the whistle had blown and the play could not be advanced. Costly turnover by the Rams, but a HUGE break in the game, especially with Brees out. Brees went out early after slamming his hand into Aaron Donald, who later left the game with a back injury, but did return. Brees could not grip the ball and once Bridgewater came into the game, the Rams defense really excelled and it was clear this was a game we should win. It was close longer than it should have been, but the squad got the job done. The win may have been an expensive one as Blythe went off on the cart and Demby struggled replacing him. We all know we were thin at the offensive line to start and Neary was waived last week. Let's hope the Blythe injury is not as bad as it looked.

The Good

Goff didnt play his best and started slowly, but while i put him in the bad column last week, i will give him a break and put him in the good section this week since he rallied strongly in the second half and did get hit plenty of times. He finished 19-28-283, a td, and a rating of 112, along with a one yard td run. Most of his yardage came on two long plays, a picture perfect 57 yarder to cooks early on a 3rd and long that John Elway could not have thrown any better and a 67 yard catch and run to Kupp on a key third down in the fourth quarter that effectively put the game away. He also had a beautiful throw for a short td to cooks to give us a two td fourth quarter lead and drove us down the field when we had to have yardage to clinch the victory. Certainly had some misses (an early one to kupp and a later one to woods notably), but there were also a couple of drops (including a brutal one by cooks) that didnt help him. He looks comfortable when he has time, not always so much when under pressure. Today, the Rams did not have a great running game and that certainly hurt him especially early. We need him to play better, but today was an improvement from last week. Let's hope the trend continues. He had a couple of nice throws to everett and one really nice one to higbee for a first down. The Goff led offense finished with 20 first downs, 380 total yards and 115 yards rushing. Not the greatest, but again, an improvement.

Is Kupp Superman?

that catch and run was a thing of beauty. Shame he never got the TD out of it....
