                If we took Weatherspoon in the 2nd would you say moving Witherspoon back to MIKE and Lauraniatus to SAM or Witherpoon to SAM and keeping Lauraniatus at MIKE?

                  Weatherspoon SLB, Lauraniatis MLB, Witherspoon WLB

                    Why do it like that, Weatherspoon is a prototypical playmaking WLB...

                      He's best suited for Weak Side but he can play Strong Side where I'm not sure Witherspoon can and they won't move Lauranitis out of the middle.

                        hmmm my opinion is that although Witherpsoon is better at WLB I think he has shown the ability to be able to play off blocks (though not as good as most) from his time at ILB and is obviously quick and athletic enough to stick to TE's man-to-man and drop into a nice zone. As much as I want a guy from Mizzou like Weatherspoon I cannot picture him being being an amazing fit to this team if Witherspoon can't play SLB.

                            No, u are starting to talk like me............thats not good. But 35-0, granted losing 35-0 to a team that will win our division this year isn't....well it is awful. But we did play a good defensive first half.

                              Defense played a very solid game. The 35-0 score doesn't do them justice. The offense is, simply put, abysmal. For the third year in a row, changing quarterbacks doesn't appear to be the silver bullet. There are significant weaknesses in other areas of the offense - protection, talent at WR, playcalling - that are holding this team back more than the passer. The Rams may find themselves in a position to draft the new face of their franchise this April, but without improvements to the unit around him, I don't expect the results to be significantly different. Hopefully we'll see some improvements as the year goes on - I thought the Rams improved from Week 1-2, and then into the first half of Week 3 - and then they can continue to weed out players during the offseason as the rebuild continues.

                                I don't understand the Offense. The little 2-3 yard passes started three years ago when Linehan got here, and at the time I just thought my god Linehan is a horrible Play caller.

                                But now the Rams are doing the same thing and if you watch the Detroit Lions (Where Linehan is the OC) they actually throw downfield a lot.
