III: The case for Jordan Fuller

I continue to be amazed over the fact that the LA Rams believed that ex-Rams DB Taylor Rapp was worthy of starting over DB Jordan Fuller. Fuller has always held a better performance in the Rams secondary in optics alone. Those performances were much like his Week 12 performance, a game in which Fuller broke up two passes which happened at key moments in the game.

Fuller is a savvy pass defender, and that is what I treasure in an NFL safety. I love to see a deep defender in the secondary play in a position to make a play on the football, or at least break up a pass. Fuller broke up four Cardinals passes in the game, and that type of pass defense played a huge role in allowing the Rams to get and keep a lead for nearly the entire game.

II: The case for Matthew Stafford

If the LA Rams can run the football, and keep starting quarterback Matthew Stafford upright and somewhat protected in the pocket, Stafford will win the game. Matthew Stafford is one of those quarterbacks who knows how to work a secondary to ensure that he keeps defensive backs guessing, and that seems to be all that the Rams need to put up touchdowns.

Stafford was both effective and efficient, tossing 33 passes to complete 25 for 229 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Stafford was not sacked in the game, although he did manage to scramble for a two-yard gain on one play. When Stafford is on, he just looks completely comfortable and casual as the shreds opposing secondaries, and Stafford was on in this one. His performance appeared to be prime-time Stafford once more.
