RamView: Week 14 – Part 2

* RB: The Ram running game today looked like the crowded cabin scene from Night at the Opera. Steven Jackson struggled through the crowd 19 times for just 47 yards, fewer than Kenneth Darby got in one run via a fake punt in the 3rd. Jackson may have run himself into trouble once, failing to follow Jacob Bell’s pull block and getting stopped for no gain by Keith Bulluck in the 2nd. But too much of the day, the problem was Titans coming in unblocked, or barely so. Kyle Vanden Bosch in the 1st. Minus-2. William Hayes beating McMichael in the 2nd. Minus-3. Bulluck again in the 3rd. Minus-1. Then Nick Harper after Bell gets knocked down in front of Jackson. Minus-4. A safety blitz in the 4th that Null didn’t check away from. Minus-another-4. Jackson’s best sequence came after the Titans’ first TD. He took off for 12 behind Bell on the pull and a big Adam Goldberg block. Two plays later Richie Incognito got him a hole for 8 more. A penalty in between stalled the drive, though, as Jackson’s linemen were obstacles much more often today than not. Jackson tried to take charge and help his rookie QB. A couple of times he did everything but turn on the Bat-Signal to get Null to throw to him. He could have contributed much more than two catches for 6 yards. Not to be today, though, as the Titans kept the Rams’ superman in the phone booth.
