Yo girl got a cute face, her friend got a nice body. They just wanna have fun, this my type of party. -Dom Kennedy, "My Type of Party"
Ah the sweet life. College four days a week. Girls wear the shortest of short shorts – so short, butt cheeks actually hang out!! Now, I know some fellas ain't ass-men, but I love big butts and I cannot lie. I don't know where I was going during that tangent but, c'mon, girls wearing close to nothing is always great! But I digress. Back to football.
Five Rams non-starters after the jump y'all...RB Daryl Richardson
Coming into the season, we knew a rookie running back would spell Steven Jackson every now and then. What we never saw coming was that Richardson would be getting those reps over second-round pick Isiah Pead. Richardson did OK in his limited role last week (20 rushing yards on two carries) against the Detroit Lions. We'll see if his carries increase this week.
TE Lance Kendricks
Technically, Matt Mulligan is the starter, so I am justified for having Kendricks on this list. He was only targeted twice at Detroit, coming up with both catches. Tight Ends are a big part in Brian Schottenheimer's offense, so it was a bit odd to see him being such a small part of last week's offense. Kendricks has the ability to create mismatches if utilized (and if he can make the catches).
WR Chris Givens
We saw one deep pass go GIvens' way last week. It may have been a lack of timing between Chris and Sam Bradford, or it may have been just an under thrown pass. But either way, that single long ball has an incomplete. Lets see if the Rams go deep to Givens more often this Sunday.
OL Quinn Ojinnaka
Robert Turner was the starting LG last week. That lasted about two quarters before he had to replace Scott Wells to start off the second half. Rookie guard Rokevious Watkins – no stranger to the buffet lines, one can assume – replaced Turner at left guard. Welp, he's hurt now too with an ankle injury. Who will start? Will it be the waiver-wire pick up Shelley Smith, or the pre-season starter Quinn "Moose" Ojinnaka? Me thinks it will be Moose.
S Craig Dahl
I'm serious about this one guys. Don't laugh (HAHAHAHA, ok just a little). Darian Stewart was not listed on the injury report. He is listed as the starter on the team's depth chart, so one has reasonable cause to believe he will get the nod for the start. What I'm curious about is in what sort of situations/packages will the Rams insert Dahl?
