Default Rams Preseason Discussion

So with one preseason game in the books, I thought I would post some thoughts on the first half...
  • Starting off with a penalty on special teams was not the first impression I was hoping the unit would make. That being said, I thought Derek Stanley showed some flashes as a return man, but it's going to be hard for a WR/KR to make this roster with a lot of talent at the receiver spot and Dante Hall basically a lock to return on special teams.
  • Bulger looked on the money except for the interception, which was basically a pop fly tip. But other than that he was accurate and made good decisions, and I don't think he took any major hits.
  • Adam Carriker looked like the real deal tonight. He could have done a better job collapsing the pocket against the pass, but he was all over the place defending the run. He got the better of Matt Birk more than once and generally held his ground very well. He seemed to be around the ball quite a bit.
  • About a week ago, Torry Holt said his knee was at 70%. Either he's now healed completely or he's good at hiding the remaining discomfort, because he was sharp tonight. His first catch - a 13-yarder against Cedric Griffin - was a nice crisp route near the sidelines that looked about as textbook as you could get.
  • Ron Bartell looked shaky as a starting cornerback tonight. He gave up big plays to Bobby Wade twice, playing off of Wade during the route and then whiffing on the tackle as he closed the gap. Maybe he needs to get the rust out, but I wasn't confident in what I saw in the first quarter.
  • Brian Leonard looked a little jittery at first, but once the second team was in he did well. His night can probably best be summed up as a mix of a couple short gains combined with a few nice bursts, one for a touchdown. He looked completely comfortable as a receiver out of the backfield as well.
  • The pass rush seemed rather underwhelming, though that might have been due to a combination of Tarvaris Jackson's scrambling ability as well as the short and intermediate routes the Vikings were running. The jury is out for me, and I'm not worried but it's at least something to watch for in the later games.

Like I said, didn't watch the second half so I didn't get to see many of the third stringers.

Some of my observations on the game.

Our backup WRs, specifcally Hagans and the guy out of UW-Whitewater (shoutout to the UW school system) looked good on Friday, that is something I really liked.

Lenord and Ferotte moved the ball well for the time that they were in. Something positive to see if knock on wood, God Forebid Jakson and Bulger were to go down.

Our first stringers not only on offense, but on defense looked well. In fact, our defense won the game, not our offense, that is a rareity in St. Louis football. I know it was the Vikings and all that, but still 10 points is good.

Brock Berlin was good, that is shocking. And Fitzpatrick clearly stunk. Did he complete more passes to the Rams or Vikings? Maybe this year, and not last year, we may have a race for the third string QB.

Some concern:we didn't get a sack. We missed a lot of tackles in which we coulda had losses. Jackson and Thigpen had too much room to scramble. Obviously, Fitzy didn't look good, and god forebid, Bulger gets hurt, and Feortte can get hurt as well, we may need him. If we do, something went terribly wrong. Also, #77, whoever the hell he is was awful, if he makes the team, our OL is pathetic.

And a question for people who know more than me, what does the starting offensive line? Pace is the LT, Barron is the RT, and Timmerman is a a guard. Who is the other guard and center. Is it Setterstrom and Incognito. And if not, who is?

Heres the Starting O-Line

LT Orlando Pace
LG Mark Setterstrom
C Brett Romberg/ Andy McCullum yet to be decided
RG Richie Incognito
RT Alex Barron

The guards may be the wrong way round but I'm sure this is it.

Romberg and McCullum should be an interesting battle.

Fry has a better chance of taking over long term if McCollum starts now. I don't think Romberg is a long term answer at all.

I only watched.. the first 3/4 of the first half... i liked our that our offense did move the ball well.. we have to fix the turnover problem and we should be fine.. leonard was good early on but then our o-line didn't give him much to work with later on.

solid game but a loss is a loss.
