The Rams won’t have much time to enjoy their Sunday night win as they look ahead to a prime time showdown with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on MNF.
Woods’ absence is lone blemish on Rams’ win over Chicago Bears | Press-Enterprise
I wouldn’t say lone blemish, but certainly Robert Woods was missed. The Mike Thomas experiment needs to come to an end, already.
Certainly, things don’t look good in Chicago, as Nagy has gone from miracle worker to turd burglar in one disastrous season. Hint: Mitch is not good at football.
Rare shutout: Khalil Mack comes up empty against Rams | Chicago Sun Times
Khalil Mack, meet Bobby Evans. And Johnny Mundt. And Cooper Kupp and.... look, if Aaron Donald got shut out by a rookie OT, we’d say he was quadruple-teamed all night, but this goose egg is an impressive W for the Rams’ pass pro unit nonetheless.
Great news on Cooks, let’s hope he provides a spark and comes down with a rainbow or two from Goff. Along the OL, another strong game from Bobby Evans and it’s hard to believe big Hav won’t join the ranks of the Hav Nots.
McVay, Rams comfortable changing up offensive approach | The Tribune
We all expected the Rams to run the ball and minimize mistakes to keep this one close against a stingy Bears D. What we didn’t expect was a rebuilt blocking scheme designed to let big dudes do what big dudes know how to do. The result wasn’t sexy, but 6-4 is a hell of a lot better than 5-5.
Clearly, we improved our chances with this win. A loss would have been catastrophic. Too bad the Denver Broncos couldn’t hold up their end of the bargain.
Rams are in the playoff Hunt, but Goff holding them back from greatness | Bleacher Report
It’s a take. I don’t think this team quite has the makings of greatness, personally. Is Jared Goff partially to blame? Absolutely. But there are a lot of other factors holding this talented roster back.
McVay suggests Gurley will have more involvement in Rams offense | Larry Brown Sports
Amazing! Guy has 133 all-purpose and now he gets his shot. At what point did we decide NOT TO involve the former OPOY in the offense? Well before the 4th quarter in Pittsburgh last week.
Good to see the QB support his OL, who surrendered 0 sacks on the day. With a repeat performance, Goff might even get his mojo back.
It might register to many as an ugly W for the team, but after last year’s debacle in the Windy City, where Goff was beyond abysmal, we’ll take it.
Was Young Gerald injured? Somewhat, yes, but the Rams’ run-heavy approach called for a heavy dose of one Johnny Mundt, as well.
