The Quick Five: Week 13

New, comments

The Rams have won two on the road. They are about to put their new found road powers to the test this week when they take on New Orleans. Could the Rams sneak away with a win? The way it is set up now, the Rams first playoff game would be a rematch of these two teams, but in St. Louis.

Jason Smith, OT

I've been pretty hard on the guy, and some people would agree I've had my reasons. but the block he put on Clark Haggans? (the Steven Jackson TD play) Beautiful. We need to see more of that Jason Smith.

Craig Dahl, S

Dahl racked up tackles, a sack, and an interception in Arizona's game. He still has his weaknesses, but it appears that they found some real talent when they acquired him. I think it's clear that James Butler is going to have a tough time getting back into the swing of things, if ever.

Brandon Gibson, WR

He is never going to be a superstar, but he is showing that he wants to stay on this team. He has been a good contributor on offense the past few weeks, and should definitely be sticking around for next year. Adios Laurent.

Steven Jackson, RB

It's sad to say, but the days of SJ getting 100+ yards are probably few and far between from this point. Call it bad blocking, call it whatever, but it appears as though it just isn't happening for the superstar. Quick note: In the three (or two and then some) years Scott Linehan was the head coach, Jackson had 30 touchdowns. Since Spagnuolo has been coach? only 8.

Sam Bradford, QB

He had a good game, but there were a few glaring mental mistakes. Sam has been playing at such a high level, it's hard to remember he is a rookie. However, if the Rams want to go somewhere this season (I'm talking about the playoffs) then those mistakes have to be left in Arizona.
