The Good and The Bad: Rams Beat ‘Skins

In NFL on September 29, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Good: The Rams are 2-1 against the Redskins since 2008.

Bad: The Rams are 2-13 versus all other teams.

Good: The Rams seem to have the Redskins’ number in the last couple of seasons.

Bad: The Rams don’t play the Redskins every week.

More after the jump…

Good: Sam Bradford continues to throw the ball with great accuracy and make plays in the pocket.

Bad: He still struggles to covert third downs into first downs.

Good: Bradford gets his first victory — hopefully his confidence blooms.

Bad: Division foe Seattle comes to the Dome. The Seahawks are 2-1.

Good: Mark Clayton and Danny Amendola combined for 141 yards — 60% of Bradford’s 235 yards.

Bad: They had zero touchdowns between the two. The Rams finished 2-6 in the red zone.

Good: Back-up tight end Daniel Fells consistently causes match-up problems for the opposing defense.

Bad: Bradford often overlooks Fells and tries for the deep play.

Good: Spagnuolo looked to Steven Jackson early and often; S-Jax was dominant

Bad: S-Jax injured his groin late in the 2nd quarter, and it looks like he won’t play this week.

Good: Back-up running back Kenneth Darby showed promise in carrying the rock.

Bad: He’s not Steven Jackson.

Good: The Rams defense finally played four quarters.

Bad: The secondary continues to struggle — They gave up 124 yards to Santana Moss.

Good: James Hall has been a pest to opposing quarterbacks.

Bad: Teams will begin to double team Hall, thus, other defenders must step up their game.

Good: The D only gave up one third down coversion out of ten tries.

Bad: They also gave up close to seven yards every rushing play.

Good: The D really made plays in the red zone. The ‘Skins didn’t score once inside the 25.

Bad: They have to eliminate mental mistakes that lead to big gains for the offense.

Good: James Laurinitis, O.J. Otogwe, and Hall are studs, week-in and week-out.

Bad: Chris Long started off the season strong but has struggled the last two games.

Good: Kicker Josh Brown was 3/4 on field goals. He supplied points when the offense could not.

Bad: The Rams are going to need to score more 7’s than 3’s next week against Seattle.
