Their defense is playing extremely well. Ramsey vs. Adams will be fun to watch. Any news on Donald?

Last I saw was that he's intending to play despite his torn rib cartilage.  The Rams can compete defensively, but I still think Goff sucks.

His thumb injury isn't doing him any favors. Perhaps Cam Akers can have another big game.

The Packers o-line is what you get when you put emphasis on players/prospects who are good at pass protection.

The Vikings o-line is what you get when you put emphasis on player/prospects who are good at run blocking.

Is it though? Always thought Reiff, Bradbury, O’Neill and Cleveland were more highly regarded in pass protection. At least when acquired. I think you’re always going to have a bad pass protecting OL if Cousins is your QB.

They were all run blockers, or players with the necessary athleticism to excel in the outside zone blocking system. But who needed to work on their pass blocking technique, and getting stronger to improve their anchoring ability.

No.

It's not on Kirk.

There was so many times he had no chance to do anything especially trying to put together a late-game drive.

If an offensive line can make Philip Rivers, a virtual statue, look decent....you can't blame Kirk

You are talking about a top 2-3 OL there. Kirk is still not a QB who will get you to a championship game unless everything was perfect for him. The hope was that it would be perfect in the 2nd year on his initial contract. It wasn't, his play cost us Diggs and we won't be for next 2 years. Looking beyond Kirk is the best path

I think TB or NO match up much better against GB than the Rams do. I'll give the edge to Tampa.

Granted, GB is 1-1 vs those teams and it should be close regardless.

But then, maybe this season finally is GB's season after 10 years of not making it back.
