Rams at Seattle, first half recap: The more things change...

The more things change...

If you told someone that the Rams had three turnovers in the first half and went to the locker room trailing 14-0, they might thing you're crazy. If they did call you crazy, just point out the fine, 9 penalty performance the team also had in the first half. The two touchdown lead explains itself after that. 

Still with us?

Well, you should be. Though the game featured some classic, classic in the sense of Scott Linehan's Rams, performances, it's just 14-0...and it could be a helluva lot worse. 

The backbreaker was the too many men penalty that brought back a special teams touchdown. 

The offense has been out of sync, totally. Jason Brown has missed a snap count because of crowd noise and Richie Incognito has had a bevy of costly penalties. Talk about a first game...

The Rams defense has been the highlight. They've been sharp and kept the game from getting out of control. You can't blame them for two TDs, since they've been on the field for an eternity. 

The offense has absolutely nothing. Bulger's cooking his passes like a hand grenade with a dud he used to that much time in the pocket? The line has been nothing special, and the receivers just can't seem to find their routes and get open.

I'm blown away that the defense gave up less than 50 yards on the ground, of, course, it was all for naught since the Rams offense couldn't make it game. Damn shame. 

The penalty on Leonard Little was complete and total bullshit. The Rams offense aren't the only ones getting a feel for the regular season.

We'll be here for the second half. If the defense can continue their strong play and the offense can get it together (a big if at this point) then it's still a game.
