Here are a few quick updates from the Rams vs. Falcon game. I am posting this during the 3rd quarter with 6 minutes left in the game.
- RB Samkon Gado has turned it around in the worst way. After being a human highlight reel last week in New York, Gado has taken a giant step backwards with a 12 carries for 5 yards performance highlighted by a fumble. This is not to say he is being outdone. Steven Jackson has 3 carries for 10 yards while Antonio Pittman has 3 carries for 2 yards. The leading rusher right now? QB Kyle Boller.
- Boller seems to have found some a level of comfort finally, looking much better in his second g0-round. He finished 9/16 for 91 yards.
- Laurent Robinson continues to play incredible football. He has 5 grabs for 65 yards on the day.
- The longest kickoff return the Rams have is 15 yards, talk about under performing. The Rams really need a return specialist.
- Hats off to Larry Grant. The OLB has 1 sack and 1 FF already.
- Michael Turner and Matt Ryan torched the first team defense, leading the Falcons to two touchdowns in the first quarter.
That is all for now, more to come after the game.
