Well the big change here was that with the struggling offense, the Rams tried to get something in passing personnel...an effort made more difficult from the early Brian Quick injury. So that meant big jumps for Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens.
Obviously the hemorrhaging of starting offensive lines threw things way off in terms of the snap counts.
And if you have any idea what the hell we're doing at running back, please let me know.
The Rams went with a bit more 4-3 than usual this week bumping up Dunbar's work rate and dropping Joyner a bit.
And Donald's role contracted a bit bringing more Brockers, Langford and Carrington.
And Roberson did a decent job I thought in jumping into the fire with the injuries the Rams were already saddled with at CB.
Again though, the defense wasn't really on the hook for yesterday. Things went awry late, but the offensive side is much more interesting to me this week given how abysmal they were.
Well if nothing else, it's time to start wondering what's up with Greg Zuerlein. There was some suggestion that he was still dealing with the illness he contracted mid-week, but that's no excuse to miss a field goal under 40 yards and muff the kickoff out of halftime that resulted in a Knile Davis return touchdown.
Mike McFadden & Jemea Thomas sightings.
The real key is to see how the Rams respond to injuries across all three units. It certainly seems like the offensive line will be constructed of Robinson-Person-Jones-Joseph-Barksdale from left to right, but perhaps Tim Barnes or some free agent/practice squad moves this week change things.
And we'll have to see if Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson get healthy this week and what that means at cornerback.
