Finding a Way to Lose

This season has been a long one for the Rams. But first of all I want to send
my congratulations to the Arizona Cardinals for winning the NFC west. It has
been 33 years since they have won a division title, savor the moment.

The Rams defense played as well as they could against Kurt Warner
and the explosive offense that Arizona possesses.

Warner had only one touchdown and 279 yards passing. He is having a MVP
season and these are low numbers for what he has done so far this season.

The Rams defense actually played well against the run. Not only did the
Rams hold Tim Hightower to under 100 yards rushing, they held the whole
TEAM to only 63 yards in 22 attempts for a 2.9 yard average.

So how did the Rams get beat 34-10? It's broken record time…. turnovers.
Arizona got 14 points off a fumble and a back breaking 99 yard interception
return in the second half. Josh Brown has also been consistent this year,
but he missed a 44 yard attempt late in the first half. That's a 17 point
difference, not to mention the points that should have come from having
the ball on the Cardinals 1 yard line.

Seattle comes to St. Louis this week, It will be interesting to see how
the Rams find a way to lose this one.
