The defense for the Rams wasn't terrible, but they gave up too many easy yards at the worst times. I believe the Rams defense has a lot of potential, I really do, but today they just seemed content giving up chunks of yardage and touchdowns in the redzone, which was the supposed apparent strength of the Rams defense. Defensive coordinator Ken Flajole also called way too much of a conservative game, not blitzing enough and not triple teaming the best receiver on the Lions roster in Calvin Johnson in the redzone. They should've been way more aggressive with Johnson and tried to blitz a lot more. I think this game wasn't so much execution on the Rams players as it was just being outcoached by the Lions coaching staff. Plain and simple, the Lions coaches game planned this game perfectly while the Rams coaches simply didn't do their homework.
Overall, the 2010 Rams have a lot of promise and the sky is the limit for this young team. Rookie quarterback Sam Bradford reminds me a lot of our last years rookie quarterback in Matthew Stafford, not willing to give up and tries to win the game anyway he can for his team. I really like Sam Bradford, a very smart and talented rookie quarterback, he will be talked about as the savior of that franchise just like Matthew Stafford has been the last couple of years for the Lions. Bradford is a bright young quarterback with a bright future and the Rams and their fans have a lot to be happy about. I also like the Rams defense and think James Laurinaitis is one of the better young linebackers in this league, along with numerous other players on this roster. It's one bad game out of sixteen and the Rams still have a shot to make the playoffs. Keep your heads up Rams fans, the future will be very bright for you. St. Louis is still rebuilding and like the Lions, they are one draft and productive offseason away from being a playoff contender.
Be proud of your team because if I were a Rams fan, despite the outcome of this game, I would be. Good luck in the future. I wish you the best.
