Hello fellow rams fans
As the first quarter of the NFL season comes the a close there is a lot to talk about but. The main problem is the running game it's disgusting along with the interior run blocking. The problem is the blocking scheme i have recorded every game and watched all of them over and over and what i've noticed is this blocking scheme does not fit the type of back D Rich is. D Rich is a one cut type of back and those type of backs work well in zone blocking schemes because it allows the running back to move laterally to find a hole or cutback lane. The scheme that we are running is a power run base man to man blocking scheme with one double team depending on which side the play is going to then you might see an occasional sweep were the guard pulls but never any counter runs or even a misdirection. This would be not be that big of a problem if the rams had a power back D Rich is not that type of runner neither is Pead at this point Stacy is the only option we have to get this running game on track. He brings power and he is shifty enough in space to break tackles D Rich is what we though he was a change of pace back.
The offensive line isn't as bad as people make it out to be if you look around the NFL it plenty of o-lines that are not performing well but there winning so nobody talks about there play like the Colts,Titans,Dolphins,Patriots,Bengals when your losing the o-line is always second in line to blame. The offensive running blocking scheme is the problem the coaching staff not making the proper adjustments is the problem no offensive creativity is the problem. I stay we fire shotty and let Bradford call he's own plays it has done wonders for Tony Romo all they need is a better defense and running back and there good to go.
As always let me know what you think you opinions are greatly appreciated.
