  • 257 yards rushing

    Skins had 257 yards rushing and we had 49 yards rushing. Jackson had 24, Fitz had 22, and Faulk 3 (1 carry).

    Fitz 21-36 163 yards passing and Brunell 14-21 156 yards. I thought Fitz did as well as Brunell did today and Brunell was sacked 0 times and rarely hurried. Average game for Fitz considering OL and no running game.

    Given how obvious it was that our #1 need going into the year was improving our run defense, which was more pressing than the right tackle spot, isnt it truly amazing how little we have improved against the run. We are the absolute worst tackling team on gods green earth.

      heck i was surprised that we were still in it in the 4th quarter. i've never seen a defense that allows about every run to get atleast 5 yards.

        marmie has effectively morphed the rams defense into the 'zona cardinals of three seasons past...

          Yea it wasn't a good game for our D but atleast Bartell looked good shutting down Moss and Jacobs. Also Claiborne showed that when he is in the game he can play very well. Coakley got hurt its sad to see for his sake but he wasn't helping this D anyways. This will be a offseason of challenges. New HC, new DC, new defensive players. New FO also. I think we should keep Claiborne though because it showed that when he is in the game alot of the game that he can help out. I know he had a few good Tackles for Loss and sniffed out a few screen passes. Thats my take on the D.

            well, i can see how you may see it that way...but my take on it was that the skins were running so effectively today that they didn't need to test the pass much...

              Yea but still Brunell passed 21x's it gives Bartell some confidence which is a good thing!

                I think Bartell can be a great corner in the future. You guys got a steal with him in the draft. The Washington Post did a series on him pre-draft, and i was really impressed. I would rather the redskins had taken Mike Williams with the 9th overall pick, then taken Bartell with the 25th pick. Good luck with him.

                  Written above by general counsel is the best post of the year. That is the truth beyond all else. We were ran out of the playoffs in a record smashing embarrassing way by the Falcons and that was our overwhelming offseason priority - and it was an abysmal failure.

                  Our Running DEF and our OFF-line were two glaring weaknesses. With this failure of the Rams Organization why are the same people being entrusted with turning this thing around? Because the owner is out to lunch and fox is guarding the henhouse.

                    It seems like Pickett is the only one showing up every game. Plus, the LB corp just didn't get the job done this year. Maybe it was a good thing that we didn't pay them a ton of bonus money to come here.

                    We get some relief cap wise with Warner off the books, but to make it work we will have to keep the Coakley and Claiborne one more year as we have approx $7 million of dead money tied up in Turley for next year.

                      we have given up 318 yards rushing
                      by general counsel
                      we have given up over 300 yards rushing and there is six minutes left in the game. I hope no one has gotten hurt.

                      Donnie Jones is averaging over 50 yards and punt and josh brown has two long field goals. Bulger threw an INT for a TD.

                      Okay, Jackson ran for 1,042 yards
                      by ramsanddodgers
                      and only 16 Running Backs had more than 1,000 while another 4 had 900+.

                      The question is, is 1,000 yards still the goal that it used to be?

                      I realize that in today's NFL where the passing game is so much more relied upon that it may be harder to get enough carries to get the yards but one need only average 62.5 yards a game to get the 1,000.

                      Averaging 75 yards a game will get one 1,200 yards and 93.75 will garner 1,500.

                      Is it time to set a loftier goal for "premiere" runners or is 1,000 yards still going to be the 'magic number?

                      I know, it sounds like a lot... but he always torches us. So, will Murray have 150 total yards against us Sunday?

                      rams rushing defense
                      by general counsel
                      Can someone enlighten me statistically please. Are we truly DEAD LAST in the nfl is rushing yardage allowed per game and average yards per carry allowed?

                      How do we stand compared to where we were last year at this time, or even last years final numbers would be a helpful data point.

                      thanks very much to all of you internet gurus who can pull stuff up like this on the a moments notice.

                      Ineffective running game???
                      by HUbison
                      I'm not sure where the notion is coming from that our running game has been so blatently ineffective that Martz has to pass on 80% of the plays as he did against the 'aints. Our running game is 7th in yards per attempt at 4.7 yards per carry. We are one of only five teams that have no runs for more than 20 yards. (Translation: there aren't a couple of 60,70, or 80 yard anomaly runs skewing that yards per carry average.) Yet we are dead last in runs per game. And we have the lowest run-pass ratio in the NFL. Why must our run-pass ratio be so low?

                      Some teams that are traditional passing teams, like Green Bay (who run 45.9% of the time, 3.9 ypc) you can understand. Or teams like Dallas (36.3%, 4.0 ypc) & Cincinnati (41.5%, 3.8 ypc), who are new-found passing teams. For that matter, there are the teams that are forced to pass more because of suspect RBs like Arizona (42.0%, 3.3 ypc), Philly (37.3%, 4.6 ypc), Miami (38.5%, 2.1 ypc), Tampa (35.2%, 3.5 ypc) or Detroit (43.7%, 3.5 ypc).

                      And yet, with Faulk & Jackson and their combined 4.7 ypc (which is higher than every team mentioned above), we run less (34.5%) than any of them.

                      Again I ask, why are we not running the ball?
