  • How Incredible Was Chris Long's Sack?

    Engaged by a blocker, he bull rushed and pushed the lineman into Brees, knocking both players to the ground for the sack. An absolutely amazing effort.

    Long has a great motor along with great determination, and it showed today with the sack and his overall play. He'll continue to improve and is destined for greatness IMO.

    What makes me mad is I had to go to the bathroom when it happened. I am frustrated, and still looking for the footage somewhere! haha


    Everytime I am away from the TV, something good happens. I think I'll just sit in the garage next week.

      yes that was a great sack. another great play when one of the fastest guys is the game in reggie bush when he had that 55 yard rush chris long was down there almost making the tackle. although he may not be the best pass rusher his effort is second to none. now we just need someone to help him on the d line.

          You think YOU'RE mad? I was out on my front steps thinking it was still halftime when Roby returned the 2nd half kickoff for the TD!

          Ya'll gave us a great game guys, really. I was in the beer line at the Superdome a couple of weeks ago, when Devrey Henderson caught a 63-yard completion against the Panthers, after we'd been sputtering all through the first half -- I was tempted for a moment to stay there by the beer booth all day! We've all been there!

              Haha, I love it when I can actually pick up on Internet sarcasm.

              It was a nice sack and showed great strength/leverage by Chris Long. He was pushing that tackle around all day and had gotten close a few more times.

              Chris Long might not ever put up huge sack numbers, but he's undoubtedly a great "football player," as Madden would say. He goes all out every play, rarely out of position and is very versatile.

                People think he is a bust because he doesn't get the sack numbers... Supposedly sack numbers make you a good def linemen.... Anyways that was very nice on his part, the off linemen wasn't stopping him that play, the bull rush was amazing.

                  He could have had another sack, but Brees shoveled it away at the last second as Long was pulling him down.

                  Our 2 best games S-Jax gets a TD and Long gets a Sack. If those guys keep that streak going we can expect to win some more games

                    Chris looks noticably bigger this year, and consequently stronger. He has manhandled tackles numerous types this year, only to come up inches short of a sack. When he gets just a tiny bit quicker, he'll be a hell raiser ....

                          I'll stick to my prediction and say he has 8 sacks by the end of the season.

                            It's definitely intriguing to see Chris follow up with another sack this week. Hopefully this parlays into even more success in the final half of the season. His confidence should definitely be up and it showed after finally notching that first sack in Detroit - now we just need him to continue to play like this and those "bust" talks will disappear quickly.

                              That was a strong move he made, one of the best ones I've seen this year. As far as him being a bust as some would like to believe, Chris relies on speed to get his sacks, that may have worked in college but most NFL tackles know how to cut down the angles so you don't blow by them. When you consider that Chris most likely gives up 60 lbs to the guy he's going against, he's not going to bull rush an offensive tackle on every play. So that leaves technique, and that's not something you learn overnight in the NFL. As he gains experience and size over the next couple of years this guy will be a force in this league that will make QB's cry in their sleep.

                                Did anyone notice that Chris Long caused the fumble (the one Clifton Ryan won't soon forget) and had a few other solid pressures? Too bad he doesn't get credit for any sacks. He had a great game.

                                There is a lot of praise going around for Steven Jackson, but man, what about Chris Long!? That sack he had was a nice one today. Almost had one earlier in the game and had a few more hits on the QB today.

                                He's really getting into a rhythm. Hope this campaign carries out for the rest of the year!

                                Chris Long and the four point stance
                                by tomahawk247
                                Have you seen that four point stance that Long lines up in? It looks odd, but cool at the same time, like he is about to pounce!

                                What an awesome season this guy is having. In a season where the Rams are struggling, he is playing so well. Considering that teams can run on this D with ease and don't need to pass much due to being in the lead often, the fact he has been able to rack up 10 sacks is ridiculous.

                                NFL Sack Stats
                                1. DeMarcus Ware 14
                                2. Jared Allen 13.5
                                3. Von Miller 10.5
                                3. Jason Pierre-Paul 10.5
                                5. Jason Babin 10
                                5. Chris Long 10


                                Just think: If Rod Hood hadn't pointlessly held his guy on Sunday, Chris Long would have got another sack and would be 3rd in the league!!

                                Lay off Chris Long already!
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                I am sick of people trying to put Chris Long on the "bust" list of Rams DL draftees. I understand the frustration over guys like Jimmy Kennedy, Damione Lewis, Adam Carriker and Claude Wroten, but Long does not belong with them.

                                Don't get me wrong... he's not an impact player, as one would hope a second overall pick would be.... yet. That's right... yet. Plenty of DEs that became Pro Bowl regulars took 3-4 years to become the dominating players they became.

                                The real issue here is sacks. Fans like sacks. Sacks are easy to evaluate. 10+ sacks, and you're a very good pass rusher. At this point, Long has not developed enough moves to be a guy who gets to the QB on a regular basis. Again, I'd throw in the words "not yet."

                                However, in the meantime, the guy is showing some productivity. After two games, he has 11 tackles. That equates to 88 for a season.

                                Guess how many DEs in the league had 88 tackles last season? That's right... NONE. (Trent Cole lead the league with 77).

                                The Rams have a lot of problems, and a lot of holes. Let's focus on them, and let Chris do his thing.

                                dont get me worng i love chris long but he hasnt really put up a decent season yet. i mean at the end of last season i saw glimpes of how good he can be. but what is holding him back is it the supporting cast around him, the defencive scheme, or what. i mean in college he was a beast. i know the nfl is alot fast gameplay then college. but only 9 sacks in his first 2 seasons. mario williams first 2 seasons he had 18.5 sacks and played for a horrible team,jared allen had 20 in his first to seasons, and dwight freeney 24 sack in 2 seasons. i know chris hasnt had alot of other great players around him but his overall skill he should have know problem to have a 10 sack season. why is leonard little putting up better numbers then long. i mean since 2008 little hasnt played a full season yet puts up more sacks. why is he not an elite defencive end yet
