Yesterday we wrote the article The St. Louis Rams Defer To The Philadelphia Eagles. Well we have heard the reasons Scott Linehan used for the deferral. I heard on ESPN Radio 1380AM and on Rams Weekly on Fox 2 the genius used behind this move. Linehan stated that he likes to get the ball to start the second half. He thought with the crowd noise in Philly that it might be easier to start on D, stop the Eagles and make them punt so the Rams could have good field position. After you stop your laughter from that, you will be glad to know that the last reason was the wind. He wanted the wind in the 4th Quarter. The 11mph wind in the Linc. I guess Bulger was going to go deep with that wind behind them in the 4th. Anyway just thought you would want to know.
