Quote of the Day

[NFL] Teams are combining to score 42.3 points a game so far, which is not far off from last season’s average of 44.1 points a game, which ranked No. 1 since the merger.
All of this, of course, is bad news for the Rams, who are going in reverse, going against the league trend. With so many NFL teams flying around and scoring quickly, the Rams are plodding along with a horse-and-buggy offense. They’ve been left behind.
That applies to the Rams’ defense, too. Quarterbacks are completing 67 percent of their passes against the Rams this season. The Rams are surrendering 8.4 yards per attempt, which ranks 30th among 32 teams. And over the next few weeks the Rams’ defensive backs will encounter Peyton Manning, Brees and Warner.

Bernie Miklasz in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on how the Rams have been left behind in the new high-flying league trends.
