Sleepy In Seattle
First props to the St. Louis Rams for their 7-9 season after finishing 1-15 in 2009. Tonight the St. Louis Rams were just terrible in a 16-6 lost to the Seattle Seahawks at Quest Field, making the Seahawks the NFC West Champion at 7-9. The Seahawks will move on to play the New Orleans Saints in the first round of NFL playoffs.
The Rams playing their most important game in six years picked a bad night to play their worst game of the year. I don't believe any Rams team member was without fault tonight. Steve Spagnuolo failed to challenge a couple of calls and again seemed to have the handcuffs on the Rams offense. Pat Shurmur was less than imaginative. I believe every Rams receiver dropped a pass, none bigger than a bomb to Danario Alexander with 10 minutes to play and the Rams trailing 13-6. Alexander let the ball go right threw his hands at the Seattle 20 yard line. Sam Bradford was less than stellar going 19 of 36 for a meager 155 yards and one terrible interception with the Rams down 7 in the 4th quarter. On defense Craig Dahl and Chris Long easily had their worst games of the year. Long was absolutely manhandled for three hours while Dahl missed a ton of open field tackles. The Seahawks who came into the game dead last in rushing yards were able to run for 141 yards against the Rams many of those to the right, through the hole mainly vacated by Chris Long. On offense the Rams had seven 3-and-out drives, ran 54 plays for 184 total yards. Just a sad way to end a very surprising season.
