Rams Drop Another 17-10 To Redskins
The 2011 St. Louis Rams season sounds like a broken record as the Rams continue to fall behind big, miss tackles and assignments, drop passes, take penalties and fail to execute in the red zone. With all of that being said the Rams were only 19 yards away from tying their contest against the Washington Redskins at 17 with only 5:30 to play after an interception by James Laurinaitis.
Then came ten of the worst plays Rams fans could bare to watch. The Rams ran 10 plays in the last 5:30 and gained a total of -4 yards, that's right -4 total yards! From the nineteen yard line the Rams threw an incomplete pass, were called for a 5 yard penalty, were sacked twice and used a timeout before punting on 4th and 30! The Rams did not attempt one run. The Rams were 2 of 7 passing for 14 yards while being sacked three times during those ten plays! That was most likely the end of the 2011 season as the Rams head into the bye week 0-4 and three games out of first place in the NFC West behind the San Francisco 49ers.
So far eight teams have scored 30+ points today including the Green Bay Packers scoring 49 which is more than the Rams have scored all season (46). Only the Jacksonville Jaguars have scored less points (39) than the St. Louis Rams. The Rams went out and got Sam Bradford a franchise quarterback but still have no playmakers. The Rams managed 172 yards on 67 plays which is an embarrassment. Sam Bradford now has a 70.8 QB rating which is 30th in the league. Today he missed some throws, throws were dropped, receivers were not open and he was getting killed in the pocket getting sacked seven times!
The Rams need weapons and sorry I like the guy and think we is a tank but Steven Jackson is just a 3 yard back with this team and offensive line. Steven Jackson had 17 carries for 45 yards with a long of 13 yards which he had on his second carry only 29 seconds into the game. After that carry Jackson had 15 carries for 32 yards, simply not good enough. No other Rams runningback had a carry or reception, why?
The Rams will head into their bye week 0-4 while being outscored 113-46. The Rams coaching staff needs to look in the mirror while Stan Kronke starts to look in his phonebook.
