  • Wistrom

    He may be the best DE in football. He does it all, run support, sacks and interceptions.


    btw. Little has 10 sacks in 10 game played.

    Nice set of bookends.

    Haslett will always take it in the pants,
    when he plays againts the Rams and Grant!


    :mad: no smiling this is "D"

      Hey, you can't mention Grant and the Aints game without mentioning the interception he snagged! It was beautiful to see him so up on his game against so worthy *cough* an opponent. ;)

        Holy Crap!!!

        Did this guy kick ass or what??? He even gave Ray Lewis a run for his money!!:rolleyes:

        Wistrom's favorite quote-
        "I have come to chew bubble gum and kick ass... And I'm all fresh out of bubble gum.":evil:

          awesome quote atlas.:o

          I loved him throwing his cup after they scored so quick. he looked a little mad :angryram: :p

          he definitely is the man, i was glad when they picked him all those years ago, i knew he'd be great. I knew mswistram was shoutin' when he caught that screen pass.

            Bye Bye Bye Aints

            Maybe we can get Kylie Turley to call Grant "Justin Timberlake" every week. Unbelievable effort!

                Imagine the 2000 Rams offense with the 2001 Rams defense?
                Everyone outside Rams' World looks at Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and even New Orleans as tough defensive teams and overlooks the Rams defense. Mostly because of the offense I guess. Could be the Rams deciding factor this year....the defense and kudos to Lovie Smith and his staff for vastly improving the Rams defense.

                  You got it!

                  Absolutely right Cweehee-E / Chris!

                  Rams D has been THE difference this year and will continue to be for the rest of the season... ALL THE WAY! No doubt one of the most remarkable turnarounds in NFL history.

                  Hey, welcome to the Clan and congrats on your first post! Enjoy...

                  Go RAMS!!! :helmet:

                    Leonard Little and the Grant Wistrom Factor (Hawk fans will love this)
                    by AvengerRam_old
                    In 2002-03, Leonard Little had 24.5 sacks in 38 games played (.65 sacks per game).

                    In 2004-05, he has 11 sacks in 24 games (.46 sacks per game).

                    What's the difference?

                    Could it be Grant Wistrom? While I, admittedly, was okay with Grant's departure given the high salary he obtained (and I still think he's overpaid), I have to wonder if Wistrom's presence on the opposite side of Little impacted Leonard's productivity.

                    To further investigate, I looked at the DEs Wistrom has played with in Seattle.

                    Chike Okeafor, who played opposite Wistrom in 2004, had his best year with Wistrom on the other side (though, to be fair, Wistrom did miss a few games). He registered 8.5 sacks in 16 games (.53 per game), which was his best production to date in this category.

                    Bryce Fisher, who plays opposite Wistrom this year, is also having his best career output in sacks, registering 7.5 in 10 games.

                    Now, before you misconstrue my point, I don't think the Rams should have paid Wistrom what the Hawks did in 2004. That said, I think these stats show how important it is to have two quality pass rushers at the DE position. When you have only one person who can consistently pressure the QB, that person can be nullified with blocking schemes.

                    I think this is one of the key problems with the Rams defense.

                    The Wistrom saga sucks for the Rams
                    by RamWraith
                    With the amount of injuries and lack of playing time it looks like the Rams will be lucky to pull a 5th round comp for Wistrom.

                    Wistrom: We played like crap at every position on defense
                    by RamDez
                    Wistrom: We played like crap at every position on defense

                    We're still 3-1. Mistakes are correctable.

                    Grant Wistrom didn't mince words on how the Seahawks defense played in the fourth quarter against his former team. "We went out there and we played like crap at every position on defense," said Wistrom. "It was a total breakdown. We werenít getting pressure on them, guys were running around free because he (Bulger) had so much time to throw. We pretty much self-destructed out there."

                    Q: How can that happen when you dominated the first half?

                    Grant Wistrom: "We made mistakes, but they made plays. Theyíre a very good team. I've said it all week that they are 2-2, but they could easily be 3-1 or 4-0, as Coach Holmgren stated. They are a very, very talented offense. Any lapse in your assignment theyíre going to exploit, and thatís what happened."

                    Q: Does this change the preparation for next week's game?

                    Grant Wistrom: "We just have to look inward now. We will really find out what this team is all about. Itís easy to get along and everybody has fun when youíre winning every week. Now we have to refocus our efforts and come together as a family, and go out there and play better and play harder."

                    Q: How was it playing your old team?

                    Grant Wistrom: "Itís just more distractions: warming up and trying to say 'hi' to people. Thatís the main difference."

                    Q: What's the status of the division now?

                    Grant Wistrom: "People who handed us the division donít know a lot about the Rams, because they are a very, very good football team, and they are going to come ready to play every Sunday. They have had a couple of slipups this year, and thatís why they were 2-2, but I think they showed today why they are still a team to be reckoned with out there."

                    Q: How do you feel you played today?

                    Grant Wistrom: "I donít think I played very well today. I think I can play much better, and I expect to go out and play a lot better next week."
