As much as I talked about Zac Stacy, he just wasn't a huge part of the Rams' offensive plans yesterday, even with the late injury. He had the same amount of snaps as Benny Cunningham against the Cowboys and actually had less time yesterday.
Another big drop in playing time? Lance Kendricks. He was around a 2/3rds work rate in the last two games, logging just half the snaps yesterday. You could attribute some of that to the returns of Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin to the offense.
I do wonder what the intent is of sprinkling Trey Watts in. Not sure that's doing much.
And you have to worry about the usage of Tavon Austin and Greg Robinson. The Rams spent their most valuable draft capital on those two. Austin had the third-lowest workrate and Robinson still can't crack an offensive line that isn't playing well.
The Rams rotated their D-line more heavily than pre-bye. Robert Quinn had his lowest work rate while guys like Ethan Westbrooks and Alex Carrington had their highest. Might have been to combat fatigue against the pace of the Eagles' offense. Aaron Donald's snaps were down too leaving more work for Kendall Langford and Michael Brockers.
And LaMarcus Joyner had a lot of nickel work replacing Jo-Lonn Dunbar yesterday. The Rams had been going with three linebackers on the field about 2/3rds of the time before yesterday. Perhaps they weren't as worried about LeSean McCoy and the Eagles' ground game as previous opponnents.
Stedman Bailey got a ton more special work. And Benny Cunningham was back in the ST fold as well. More to come on Greg Zuerlein either today or tomorrow, but I wish he was getting more FG attempts.
And this is your Greg Robinson contribution for the day...
