My take on the Rams:
Goff is progressing his game pretty well, he took what the defense was giving him and I respect the fact that they didn’t try to get flashy with deep passes. That lone INT should not have counted and we know that. The only things that bothered me were the missed opportunities, like Malcolm Brown dropping a screen pass that could’ve went the distance, and that horrendous missed FG by Sloman. Some of the play calling were head scratchers as well, a screen pass to Brown when you have Akers and Henderson???
Running plays up the middle with RBs who are better running outside?? If you’re going to run those type of plays at least get a little more creative, however, Akers and Henderson weren’t really running with patience anyway. I think those two will come along.
On the defensive side of the call, what in the world was Staley thinking in that first half?? My goodness the defense was atrocious, but I will give credit when credit is due, the man adjusted well in the second half allowing a mere 3 points.
I have high hopes for the secondary this season and they did a good job tonight. Those Cowboys WRs are no joke, and I think it’ll be good practice for when we have to cover those Tampa Bay receivers.
We had a Leonard Floyd sighting last night, but I want more from those edge rushers, when Donald is getting multiple bodies on him every play someone should do something
As mentioned, once Staley fine tunes this defense it has the potential to be one of the best in football.
Good things lie ahead for us, just need to stay focused.
