Strange Game

The St. Louis Rams played their second game of the season yesterday against the Washington Redskins. Last year the Rams beat the Redskins for one of their only two victories of the year.

The Rams have lost 12 straight games since then. Was it going to repeat? Not on this Sunday. Again the Rams found ways of giving the game away.

The Rams lost 9-7. This time it was not the defenses fault. The defense only gave up three field goals, but the offense only managed 7 points. That's now 7 points in TWO games.

The Rams defense held Clinton Portis of the Redskins to only 79 yards on the ground. Steven Jackson had 104 yards on the ground. Anytime you have more rushing yards than your opponent, you should win the game. But this is the Rams we're talking about.

Marc Bulger is starting to get on my bad side. He passed Jim Everett in Rams history with the most completions. The problem was he threw 4 incomplete passes when it was supposed to count late in the game. He was 0-4 on the Rams last possession and 1-6 in the fourth quarter. This year in the two games that he's played, he's 6-17 in the fourth quarter. Brutal to say the least.

This was a snooze fest of a game from the get go. Even on the last drive, the 4 and out made it just another Rams loss. No excitement. Next week the Green Bay Packers come to St. Louis. Somebody better wake up the offense. I'm not ready for another strange game.
