Rams Recap, Week 4: The Quick Five

Take that Leon!
Take that Leon!

It's been a long time coming, hasn't it? The Rams definitely deserved this one from all sides of the ball. The defense is quickly emerging as a team that just doesn't give up points, the offense is beginning to move the ball, passing or running and special teams played well too. A quarter into the season and I'm glad I can say the Rams are in the hunt for the division.

The Front Four, D-Line

It's been a very, very long time since the Rams were able to get pressure with the front four alone. Fred Robbins has been an excellent pickup, and we are seeing just what a defensive minded head coach can do with a unit that was laughable before he showed up.

Pat Shurmur, OC

I have to give him credit for a second straight week. Plays last year that would have been impossible for the Rams are becoming second nature, I was impressed with the Rams ability to keep drives moving, even after plays that resulted in little to no gain.

Bradley Fletcher, CB

He still has some kinks to iron out, but he sure looks like an absolute steal. He had another interception, and is quickly becoming one of the Rams best CB's, if not one of the best in the division. The future is bright for the 2nd year pro.

Donnie Jones, P

Did you see Leon Washington get in his face before the game? The Rams special teams didn't let Washington do too much, and Jones was excellent, dropping as many punts as he could near the 10 yard line or less.

Holding Calls

It happens in a game, of course it's not going to be perfect, but there were times that holding bogged down the Rams, and I hope they can smooth out those ruffles as the season progresses. But the O-Line did a great job blocking for Jackson, who played great even with a injured groin.

 

2-2. Savor it. Enjoy it. Revel in it. Detroit better get ready, because the Rams just gained some huge momentum.
