Torry Holt saw progress.
He could have creamed Sam. Good game guys. Back to the drawing board. Safe travels to the Lou.#Rams— Torry Holt (@BigGame81) September 9, 2012
Michael Brockers, who watched in his street clothes while recovering from an ankle injury saw the positive.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who had a big game that included an interception, promised better things to come.
