I'm somewhat glad Ryan asked me to move this to Tuesday. After Sunday's draining performance, the Rams were the last things I wanted to think about. The team has imploded on themselves, for reasons I cannot explain. While yes, they had a weak schedule last year, they also played hard. Where they inconsistent? Yes. But they actually played with a purpose. The only purpose the team seemed to have yesterday was to get off the field as quickly as possible so they could go home. Quick five after the jump.

Steve Loney, Offensive Line Coach

Gone. That's the only thing I can think of for this guy. The Rams need every ounce of help they can get on the offensive line, and this guy just isn't cutting it.

 

Robert Quinn, DE

Quinn had another impressive outing on Sunday. He continues to impress in terms of speed and appears that the rust is starting to wear off for him. At least the Rams have plugged one hole.

 

Rodger Saffold, OT

What in the hell has happened to Saffold? Last year, he looked like a draft steal (even in the second round) because he played very well at LT. Now, he looks like he's taking advice from Alex Barron. He as been playing horrible as of late. Massive disappointment.

Jason Smith, OT

I cannot think of a bigger waste of money. Not only could he not hold down the LT spot, but now he is playing horrible as a RT. He is probably the biggest 'bust' of the Devaney era. Unless he starts playing hard, I don't know how he will survive his huge 10 million dollar salary next year.

Michael Hoomanawanui, TE

What, no Justin King?! I tried to give King the break for the week. He improved from giving up 3 horrible TD passes, so at least there is that. Unfortunately for Illinois Mike, it appears he has a concussion. He's fallen prey to the injury bug, yet again, and could miss some time, yet again. Unlike Jason Smith, who has his head up, well, somewhere dark, Mike had the talent but just couldn't stay on the field.
