Rams vs. Bengals Recap: The Quick Five

New, comments

After the 'game' the the Rams played last Monday, you'd think they'd have nowhere to go but up. They did go up, only if you consider up to be a infinitesimally small baby step from the half yard line of their own end zone to the one yard line. The Rams had much more fight in them this week, but still couldn't get it done, falling to the Bengals by one score.

Quick Five after the break.

Kellen Clemens, QB

I was really surprised by how well he played. He didn't light anyone up, but Sam Bradford should sure be taking notes about this performance, because Clemens came in with almost zero work with the offense and did better than Bradford's done all year. 229 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs and almost a 70% completion rate? I'll take that any day.

Josh Gordy, CB

Will he ever be a #1 cornerback? No. But if next year the team has most, if not all of the CB's on the IR return to play, Gordy will easily be able to make the team as a 4th or 5th corner. He's really made the most of the opportunity he's had. If only we could say the same of Justin King.

Josh McDaniels, OC

Perhaps you should try and video tape your old team, the Broncos? If anyone has any idea what he is trying to do, please tell me. He certainly isn't the offensive genius everyone thought he'd be. Where have you got Pat? We need you!

Harvey Dahl, G

If this game taught you anything, it's that you don't mess with Harvey Dahl. Period. It's almost sad that one of the newest additions to the Rams is the only one that has any fight in him.

Robert Quinn, DE

He may be a liability in the run game, but man is he fast. The Rams have done a decent job so far of getting him on the field in situations where he can use his quickness, but with two games left, I'd like to see what he could do as a starter. What have the Rams got to lose?
