  • What you want to see in Week 2

    Ok, so the season is underway and it didn't look good.
    Even if we end up with one of the worst 5 records in the NFL again this year, we need to see things to build on.

    Here is what I have seen and need to see.

    1. Pressure on the Qb when Long is in the game. It is dissappointing to see Little and Long not get to Qb, this is a must.
    With Adam Carriker and Long being high draft picks there is a demand for performance out of Long this season.

    2. Bulger must throw the ball deep down the field. Our Recievers must do this to open the middle up for Randy and the screen pass for SJax.

    3. Sjax must catch the ball out of the backfield.

    4. Our Defense actually looked decent to start the game, other than pressure on the QB. I need to see big hits on defense. That creates fear, tempo, and turnovers.

    5. We need to score 20 points or more. If we score 14 or less Kyle Boller will be warming up and Tim Tebow will be on our radar come week 4.

    6. No mental mistakes that result in penalties. We actually were right in this game without the stupid penalties.

    7. Special teams returners to get some yardage/block on kick returns and punts. This could make our offense so much better.

    8. Someone become a leader on the field. We know Bulger isn't the man anymore, so let's see someone do this.

    I want to see us take more shots downfield. I also want to see Jaxx get the ball WAY more. 3-and-outs can not be an option because with good field position, the skins will score with ease. I don't want to see Richie Incognito get in another fight and kill another one of our drives. We have to stay consistent and move the ball downfield. We should be settling for nothing less than a FG on every drive at least.

      To me it's really only two things:
      Offense
      1. More touches for Steven Jackson. He should be rushing the ball 20-25 times a game and getting at least 3-5 catches.
      Defense
      2. Pressure on the QB.

      I think everything else will follow if these two things are preformed.

        I think if we use the screen pass on 1st down it can get positve yardage and keep the oposing LB's from center blitzing us.

        With the additon of Kearny and Bajema we should be able to pick up pressure and pull our OL to create multiple options on RB/WR/TE screen passes.

        Randy should be used as our #3 reciever with Laurent and Avery moving around a ton.

        Randy should be used in the way the Falcons used Crumpler as a flanker with Bulger haven't to get rid of the ball quick and make STRONG ARMED THROWS.

        we will see

          I want to see Bell block somebody
          I want to see Long hit the QB
          I want to see a WR catch a pass over 20 yards
          I want to see McMichael make a difference
          I want to see Jackson hit the hole (if there is one) and not dance around
          I want to see Jackson pick up a blitzing defensive player for once

            I want to see the Rams score more points than the Redskins.


            No, that was not a wiseass remark.

            My point is... I want the Rams to win the game. I don't care how. 3-0? Works for me. 45-42? Great. On the strength of Jackson's running? Super. On the strength of Bulger's throwing? Wonderful. Win by defense. Win by special teams. Win by luck of the bounce. All good.

            This team needs a taste of victory. Victory will vindicate the hard work of camp, and give hope for the future. Victory will build confidence and bring the team together.

            Right now, that's all I want.

                What i would like to see is, more of what we saw in the first quarter in the seahawks game from our defense- Turnovers.
                I would like to see our offense move the ball downfield anyhow anyway i don't care who gets the ball as long as we put some points on the board.

                p.s.- Tim Tebow will not be on our radar,the way our offense is designed the QB has to be a very accurate passer i.e.- Bradford or McCoy imo.
                p.s.s.- I forgot, I would also like Little and Long to get somesort of pressure on the qb this week, and i would also like to see Victor Adenaju ( not even close on the spelling) active for this game i would bet he knows when he's supposed to be on the field or not, plus he is a beast.

                    This must come as quite a surprise to the Rams lockerroom.

                      I'd like the RAMs to win 45-0..............twould cause the entire universe to stand up and say "WWWWHHHHHAAAAAAATTTT?". Talk about confusion.

                      I wanna see the short leading passes to the WRs. Let Avery and Robinson YAC.

                      I wanna see some friggin push on the right side with Brown stalemating Haynesw...., Cogs sealing off and Smith and someone else plowing the road for SJ. All Game!! Take it 5-8 yards a pop if necessary. Mike up SJ so I can hear him giggle.

                      Then give me the play action with Avery and Robinson going deep.

                        Re: What you want to see in Week 2

                        I want them to fight for every yard on both sides of the ball

                        commit less penalties

                        stop the run

                        pressure the oposing QB

                        make the best use of Jackson, Avery and Robinson.

                        Beat the redskins most of all.

                        Thats what I want to see. I hope I do.

                            Like to see the D-line pressure and get to the QB, and the D hold the skins less than 100 yards rushing.
                            The OL open holds for SJ to gain 100+ yards if we do those thing we probably win the game.

                                Upcoming Game
                                by Milan
                                I, for one am tired of all the bi***ing about last weeks loss and the constant repetition of threads, which are all saying basically the same thing. So here's a fresh change of pace.

                                What needs to improve for next week mainly

                                - Passing Game
                                - Pass Rush
                                - Pass Protection

                                Those are the big three, we improve those three and we have a win. Huge emphasis on Pass rush this week. Regardless of what anyone says about our CBs, nobody can cover a WR for 4-7 seconds, there is no possible way of keeping an eye on both the QB and WR for that amount of time.

                                Our Run blocking has been par last game, not great, not terrible.

                                Linehan needs to absolutely work the O-Linemen Vs. The D-Linemen this week and hard during practice. Granted, we don't want any more injuries on the OL but, the pass protection is just ridiculous.

                                Agree? Disagree?

                                Week 2 vs. ***** - Why we will win / Why we will lose
                                by RamsInfiniti
                                Here is a quick analysis of the what I think are the keys that could cause us to win or lose the game against the 49er's.

                                What we need to do to win:

                                1. Protect Bulger - I don't care what it takes, but we have to be able to protect Bulger, particularly early on, the keep the ***** defense honest. I am fully expecting Barron to anchor the left side of the line and I do not anticipate significant problems there. I am concerned about the RT position and possibly not having Cogs in the lineup again. If we can contain the ***** pass rush early, and establish the short passing game and run, we should be able to open up the field later in the game and get over top their secondary. We MUST use quick strikes in the passing game to neutralize the blitz. If we keep tight ends in early to help block, they may be able to become deadly assassins later in the game if we are able to leak them into the middle of the field, and get the ball in their hands before the blitz gets to Bulger. One play that comes to mind in the Carolina game was sending Jackson down the sideline on a streak. Bulger missed him by about a yard, but these types of plays can be gamebreakers against the blitz if we can just provide Bulger with the splitsecond of time he needs.

                                2. Establish Ball-Control - The short passing game that Linehan and Co. lived and died by in game one might be PART of a solution to a successful attack in game 2. Establishing a short passing game is essential this week, particularly with the questions on the offensive line, but the short passes need to go to the right personnel. While Holt and Bruce are running deep outs, skinny posts, and streak patterns, we need to throw some swing routes, short slants, and middle flares to McMichael, Jackson, and Bennett. I liked to creativity with Hall coming out of the backfield in game 1 and would like to see that as a staple in this gameplan. There is no reason Jackson shouldn't get 25-30 carries in this game, given how poorly the ***** contained against Edge. The strategy that Carolina used with Smith could be just the medicine we need to ignite the offense this week. Give the ***** a steady dose of short drops off and Jackson up the middle, then spread the field and hit Holt or Bruce deep. We are at least 50/50 for getting a completion or DPI everytime we do this. Having a healthy Bennett on the field could be a huge boost and spread the field even further if we can get him 15 to 20 yards down field on some crossing routes. In a nutshell, we absolutely have to have some ball control to help our undersized defense, which wore down later in the game against the Panthers.

                                3. Contain the middle - I don't see Gore being the outside running threat the either of the De-RB's that the Panthers had. With that being said, if we can show the same level of inner containment, or even better, that we did against Carolina, I think we can be semi-effective in neutralizing Gore. After watching...

                                First and foremost Bulger had a good game under constant pressure. Last year Avery won us this game this year he lost us this game to out it bluntly.

                                Avery should be carrying a ball all day around the facility and everyone from the players to the janiotors should try to strip it all day until he learns some ball security. The only time he shouldn't have a ball in his hands is when he is trying to catch full speed passes from a jug machine or marc Bulger. also he needs to work on blocking since every big run we've had this year Avery has been called for a penalty. 2 horrible games in a row I'm not giving up on him, but he's definately demoted to number 2.

                                We still need better pass protection, and better play from guys not named Robinson and Jackson. We definately need to get more consistent pressure, QBs have way to much time against us. If we got more pressure our defense would really take it to the next level IMO.

                                On the bright side. Play calling much better this week. We used alot more Karney and we used S-Jax in vairety of ways and he was great. We gave up alot to the TE early then we locked up on him. Excellent day for the defense. It was alot of ben don't break, but they definately made plays when we needed them most. They are gonna need some help from the offense if we want to take this thing to the next level. S-jax excellent we got him the ball. Robinson by far number 1 reciever everyone else needs to step it up. O-line much better run blocking especially cogs who I shreded last week.

                                All in all huge week to week improvement IMO. Saw somethings i really liked

                                This team
                                by LaRamsFanLongTime
                                Does anyone really think this team is as bad as we are playing right now? I had high hopes for this season and took it pretty badly when we started losing right out the gates. I am trying to think of why and it is so obvious.

                                Is it the Coaches fault? It can be but with all the injuries how do you come up with any consistancy in your playbook? Short passes QB dies long Passes QB dies. RB hurt plus the whole line hurt = no run game to take pressure off beat up QB's. So no I could not put this on the coach. Take away Welker, Tom Brady, and The whole o-line and the Patriots are not a great team.

                                Lets see now defense? Yeah they still suck and have weekness in every spot. That is an area though I fealt going into this season that was a huge ????? The defense is definatly rebuilding and hopefully the high pick we get will be used on a immediate difference maker.

                                Offense see the coach area we all know that an offense that banged up could not put up the numbers we are used too around these parts. Last week though we saw some life out of them.

                                So the obvious choice is the reoccuring week defense and banged up offense. I am not sitting here thinking this team will be bad for the next 10 years. I think this season was an injury plagued season that will be long forgotten by mid season next year. Yes I do know that is a long time but we have no choice but to wait it out now do we?

                                I think we let Linehan have at least a healthy season to see if he can right the ship. If this team faulters next year then a change should be made. BTW is it just me or should the conditioning coach be put out to pasture.

                                Why we didn't get to the endzone..
                                by schut39
                                Here is a segment of an article by Jeff Gordon from stltoday.com that I thought was pretty interesting.

                                The Rams got the ball first, but Donnie Avery immediately fumbled it back to the Seahawks on the opening kickoff return. He did not protect the ball when he cut into traffic.

                                On their first snap from scrimmage, Richie Incognito was flagged for a five-yard false start penalty. This gave Bulger a first-and-15 situation to start with, on his own 15. The Rams gained six yards on three plays and punted.

                                On the Ramsí second possession, Jackson ground out a first down. But on a second-and-nine play, Incognito took a trademark 15-yard personal foul penalty. This gave Bulger a second-and-22 situation to deal with . . . and soon the Rams punted again.

                                After the Rams defense created another turnover, the offense got the ball on the Seattle 38. Avery quickly negated Jacksonís 8-yard run with a holding penalty. On third-and-7 from the 35, center Jason Brown missed Bulger with his shotgun snap. Bulger did well to recover the ball and throw an incomplete pass, but the Rams had to punt again.

                                After the Rams defense created another turnover, Jacob Bell earned a false start penalty to turn a second-and-4 situation into a second-and-9 scenario.

                                The Rams overcame that, but a false start penalty on Randy McMichael, followed immediately by a delay-of-game penalty, knocked them out of the red zone. Then Josh Brown missed the 37-yard field goal attempt, which should be a chip shot for him.

                                On and on it went. The Rams blocked a field goal and ran it back for the game-tying TD . . . only to lose the momentum-shifting play to a video review.

                                It turns out they had 12 men on the field. How do you have 12 men on the field? Doesnít somebody count how many players go out there? Arenít these jobs assigned?

                                The Rams should have led at the half. At worst, they should have been tied with the Seahawks. Instead they trailed 14-0.


                                As you can see, we had plenty of chances to get into the endzone and we didn't capitalize on any of our defenses turnovers. Almost every drive had penalties and mistakes which is ridiculous. If we didn't make some of those mistakes we could have put up at least as many points as the Seahawks did if not more by halftime. Our defense is doing their job for the most part, but our offense really needs to step it up. To tell you the truth, I think we could've won if it weren't for stupid mistakes. We are a much better team than what we saw on Sunday night. If we can work on getting the simple things fixed, then we will be a much better team. Hopefully next week we won't make drive-killing mistakes. If we don't, then the Redskins better be prepared for some good competition!
