    I want to heat EVERYONES opinion on the offense this weekend. Is it time to get nervous????

  • #2
    don't get nervous...yet. we get atlanta next week so we'll have some time. Also, defenses progress better than offenses, there is consistently a 3-4 week difference because of the intricacies of offense compared to defense - not just on the Rams.

    The O-Line was horrible and should be ashamed of themselves, we can see why Martz was pissed at them going back to the preseason. We better step it up here or Marshall and Kurt will watching a lot of games.

    Warner did OK, coulda been better, but he won the game with a bruised finger - still have to see what happens here. Neither INT was really his fault and he threw the ball to the WIDE open man everytime. All his incompletes were b/c he was looking into the eyes of Hugh Douglas, and Co. thanks to the o-line. I also LOVED the ball movement, everyone touched it and Conwell did awesome.

    Marshall and all receivers were fine.

    I was disappointed in the fumble by Cason but it was cool to see him and Yo in their new #s.

    Bottom line, we scored on TOs, always a must, however we did NOT score on non-turnover drives (only 6 points). We need to be able to drive down the field better (although we did eat up the entire first half of the 3rd quarter until a fumble). We need to watch the fumbles on our end, we got lucky and it coulda been A LOT worse.

    Grade: C+

      Nervous? What?

      Why? Hey, Philadelphia has 2 of the best corners in the NFL, and there Front 4 isn't bad either. They are a very good football team. There defense is well known to be punishing. Warner threw for over 300 yards, that was just a bad call down in the red zone. Martz admits that. Faulk rushed well for the first game, and no one came out hurt. We showed how dangerous we really are in OT. Just ask the Eagles. Bruce and Warner haven't thrown much to each other this year, so that looked to me like things to come. And with Candidate in the same backfield as Faulk? Talk about sticking an LB in a round room and telling him to find the corner. Least we forget Conwell being healthy. No, not worried about the O at all. Last year, we would not have received the extra stop from the D. This year we did. I would rather win 20-17 on the road in hostile Philadelphia and no injuries on that ridiculous thing they call turf, than to score 35 and lose.

            I got it from Atlas, he had a link for a bunch of them. I'm just not savvy enough to figure out how to make it wave. I don't know where the url is, but Atlas will be happy to show you

              Where is the passion this year?
              by txramsfan
              Is it just me, or is all the passion of the team this year solely on the defensive side of the ball. I haven't seen the offense have fun since Detroit. I just don't see the same salt and vinegar on the offense this year. It is like the Rams O has began to believe all the media poison. "Greatest Show on Earth", "Only the Rams can stop the Rams" that sort of thing. Well, wouldn't it be a crying shame if the Rams did stop themselves? They may just do that if they don't fix a few problems.

              What happened to our great offense
              by shortman1984
              Yes we won and im happy about that but why could we not move the ball.. We started out good i mean real good but just looked bad at times. Our Defense won this game because if the Cards scored TD's everytime the got in the redzone then we would have been hurting. Bulger looked horrid too. I dont know what was wrong with him really. Only good thing i can see from this is that we barely beat the Cards last year and they are suppose to be better this year. But i just hope this Offense does better. Last week they couldnt score in the redzone and this week they could barely get in the redzone. So they need to improve on Offense. Believe it or not. Oh and Warner did do pretty good but what are 300+ yards going to do when you cant score and have multiple turnovers.. i didnt look at all the mistakes Warner made cuz quite frankly, i dont care it is another game to me. I just thought ppl were over with the whole Bulger-Warner discussion...

              Rams vs NE
              by jdpbmo
              Man o' man, that was a good game. First award goes to the defense for doing their thing. Right now they are the glue that is holding this team together and on top. I love to watch that offense and they are something else, when the interceptions and fumbles are avoided. That point still bothers me, but hey you can't throw too many stones at 8-1. I would really like to see them stick it to TB and NO. I don't think they will have much trouble with TB, but the NO game will be tough. I hope Brooks throws some interceptions then takes off to tackle the man so we can plow him like they did Warner in the dome. I thought our special teams did an excellent job. Their crowd was really into the game and Warner and company did a great job of neutralizing them by scoring. I also liked the way we held the ball at the end of the game by a stiff does of Faulk and Warner. Faulk is amazing, as a player, as a person, as a role model. I thought Warner threw the ball better last night, at least it looked like the thumb didn't affect him as much. I think when they got that first down late with the little flare to Faulk that is the first time I have seen Martz show emotion. Hell, even when he's on someone he seems cool and composed. I didn't understand the timeout with a few seconds left in the 3rd quarter? Not much else, just great job again and a wonderful team effort.:angryram:

              Yikes! but a WIN over the Giants
              by MsWistRAM
              Whoa! Okay, not what we were expecting, huh? The one thing we can agree on, at least they won. Could we PLEASE stop making them so close?

              Highlights: Tucker did the best he could under the circumstances against Strahan who's just a monster. At least Warner came away from that game in one piece (right?).

              Archuleta did well also under the circumstances. Hard to believe he's a rookie, but he plays with tenacity. Nice to know he can be counted on in tough times. We need players like this who can go out there and perform under duress.

              Hey, we know if we have to, we can win a game on Wilkens' fieldgoals alone if we absolutely have to. Luckily we didn't have to, though we came close.

              Faulk goes out, Canidate comes in, TD! Deja' vu? Seems like I've seen this before. At least we are getting indications that Trung is up to the challenge of filling Faulks shoes if he has to, because he has to, now that Faulk will be out with that (hopefully, just) strained ligament. I know, Trung is no Marshall, but he can make plays. We've seen him wire his way through a defense. He may not be the goto guy that Faulk is, but he'll be a big part of keeping this team on top till Faulk gets back into it. Luckily we also have a few other very nice receivers, so let's not worry and prove those wrong who say the Rams are out of it if Faulk gets hurt.

              Faulk and Bruce join Proehl in the 500 receptions club. That makes 3 on the same team, our team. Cool!

              Gotta love Archuleta and Wistrom's effort that turned the ball over keeping the Gnats from scoring and taking this one away from us in the last seconds of the game

              That defense! That New Name Defense! Sure they had some trouble keeping the Gnats out of the air at the start. But many turnovers (and ugly punts) later showed us they were up to the challenge. . Soon everyone will have to SHUT THE HECK UP about last season's defense. This one is here and READY TO RUMBLE!

              Downside: poor Faulk. Forget the physical injuries, those will heal (sorta). But 2 more fumbles on the record, 3 for the season so far. That's got to hurt! And we won't even mention those dropped passes by Holt and Faulk. (I'm sure they'd rather we didn't.)

              The penalty-fest was something, on both sides of the ball. That needs to be contained. Unfortunately, it seems like we are saying this after every game. It's a little more forgiveable when you win big. That's not what we got this time. It wasn't a big win, but a win all the same.

              The good, the bad, and the ugly
              by porkchop
              Alright guys, we are off to a 1-0 start in 2001. If you guys don't mind, I'd like to give my thought on the game. Just my opinion of course!

              First off, let me say that the refs in Philly will live to see another day. That's the good news. The bad news is, I'm not sure if that was a touchdown? When going to the replay, you have to have indisputable proof to reverse the call. I did not see that from the replay. My initial thought before the replay was TD. After looking again, I still doubt it was. Hometown call.

              The offense performed well most of the time. We should have had more than 17 points going into OT. I think the difference in the game, was actually the int at the goalline, not the overturned replay.

              Offensive Line 6/10

              Servicable but not spectacular. They let Warner get sacked too many times. Sometimes there is nothing you can do when the numbers don't favor you. Other times guys just broke free and made the sack. These guys need to get out of Faulk's way. There were too many times in which he ran into one of them and could not pick up yardage. I realize that Faulk is alusive and makes his own cuts sometimes, so he does that to himself too.

              Receivers 9/10

              Many times they reached back and made great catches on the quick hitters. I was amazed at some of the catches. These guys are the best receiving corps in the league hands down. They need the ball even more! The only mental mistake I saw was when Holt ran out of bounds on the long throw. It had 6 written all over it. He needs to be more aware of the sideline. Easy for me to say! He's got more talnet in his shoe than I will ever have. Just honest critisism.

              Tight Ends 9/10

              Nice to see Conwell and Robinson involved. This could potentially open up even more for Faulk and the receivers.

              RB 9/10

              Faulk is simply the best. He blocks, he runs, he catches, and plays hurt when he has to. He just makes people look stupid sometimes. Hodgins needs to be taken out of the passing game. Big mistake putting him into the pattern.

              QB 8/10

              Warner is still great. Makes the best throws in the world, but there were times when I thought he was a little tentative, and other times I thought he was pressing. Give the guy time, and you are dead! Bottom line!

              DLINE 7/10

              Nothing real bad today, yet nothing real great. They held up well, but need to get more push. Pass rush was non-existant sometimes. Yet I can't help but wonder, did the coaching staff really want a big rush? Hey, let McNabb stand back and throw. Better than running around everywhere right?

              LB 8/10

              Pretty good coverage all game, and along with the line, made some really nice stops on the backs. I knew the running game would be a non-factor today. I'm glad I called it right. If they had not shut down Staley,...
