Since Linehan was fired the Rams have looked like a new
Not yesterday, they looked like the same old Rams. The Arizona
Cardinals marched right down the field on their first possession. The Rams
defense stopped them short of what was initially ruled a touchdown. Coach
Haslett challenged the call, (good decision on his part) and it was reversed.
The Rams defense stuffed Kurt Warner on a 4th and one from the one and the
defense looked pumped up. That didn't last too long.
All that happened next was after the Rams went up 7-0, Arizona put up
24 points in the second quarter. The Cardinals ended up with 31 unanswered
points to take a 31-7 lead into the fourth quarter. By then it was already over,
the Rams couldn't stop them from doing anything.
The Cardinals racked up 510 total yards. Warner threw for 342 and two touchdowns.
Arizona benched Edgerrin James before the game going to a younger Tim Hightower
at running back. Hightower ended up with 109 yards and a nifty 30 yard touchdown run.
Next week it will be the Jets, Brett Favre should look like he's 25 against the
Rams. You never really know with this team, because it will be one week
