Rams Get Blown Out Again 35-16

I don’t know what to say.

The Rams do not seem to care. They do not execute on offense. They do not tackle or cover on defense. So, I’m not sure where to begin with this recap.

But, there is always somewhere to start with the Rams: the run defense. The Rams were run over again by the opposing offense, this time in the form of Frank Gore, Deshaun Foster and Michael Robinson. Next, the pass defense. The Rams made Shaun Hill look like he should be enshrined to Canton and even had the announcers singing Hill’s praises. The pass rush generated some pressure, but Hill was always able to slide away from the pressure and find the open man. Will Witherspoon, one of the Rams best players on defense had his worst game as a Ram.

The game was never in doubt as the 49ers scored 28 points in the second quarter and scored touchdowns on five straight drives over the first and second quarter. This was the return of the same old Rams as the game went towards the Niners, the Rams were unable to get the momentum back and collapsed on themselves as they have been doing for the past two years. Sadly, this is the same team under Jim Haslett as it was under Scott Linehan. The 49ers are not a good team, so the Rams do not even have that excuse for rolling over. There can be no excuses for this type of performance, only players/coaches and executives held accountable.

To add injury to insult (literally), the Rams lost Orlando Pace and Ron Bartell to injury during the game. Orlando’s injury looks fairly serious as his knee bent a way that is never should bend and was seen at the end of the game on the sidelines in street clothes.

The Rams don’t care, so I’m not sure why we as fans should care.
