Big Plays

It is a continuing problem for the St. Louis Rams, giving up the big plays on defense.

Sunday's home game against Green Bay was another of the long plays hurting the Rams chances to win a game. The Rams lost the game 36-17 to the Packers.

The Rams defense gave up pass plays of 46, 50 & 53 yards. They held an opponents running back to under 100 yards for the first time since…. since I can remember. Ryan Grant had 99 yards on 26 carries. It was the passing game of Green Bay that took it's toll this time on the Rams.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 269 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 38 yards and scored on a 4 yard run.

The Rams defense has not gotten any help from their offense this year, and on Sunday they found themselves down 16-0 early in the second quarter.

The Rams defense didn't win the turnover battle either. The Rams didn't have one takeaway the whole game. With a lackluster offense, it makes it a long day on the defensive side of the ball.

Next up is the San Francisco 49'rs. With Frank Gore as their number one weapon, I see another day of big plays coming the defenses way. Maybe the Rams can adjust the defense and find a way to beat San Fran.

On a good note, the Rams retired Deacon Jones #75 at halftime yesterday. He is well deserving of the honor.
