I can’t say I didn’t see this coming, but it still hurts anytime the Rams lose. First, let me say that the jerseys the Packers wore today are hideous. Now, as for the Rams, at least I saw some things today that were a little better. Steven Jackson looked awfully good at times, rushing for nearly 100 yards and catching some more. I thought he looked very much like the SJ39 we know and love, so that’s a good sign. Sam Bradford tossed for over 300 yards, but I didn’t think he was overly sharp overall. He threw a pretty bad interception on a fade pattern to Danario Alexander when he left it short, but overall I’d say he was just OK. DX was the man again, and I know I’ve said it before, but as long as he can figure out a way to stay on the field, he can be a very special player.
The thing that bothers me most is that this team just keeps struggling with the same issues week after week. Penalties continue to kill us, and not just penalties, but stupid, undisciplined penalties at bad times. I know that no team is perfect and everyone makes mistakes, but in my opinion there’s no excuse for the false starts. That’s got to be on the coaching staff. They might not be the ones jumping, but it’s their job to make sure it doesn’t happen.
