RamView: Week 14 – Part 3

* Receivers: Rams receivers set new standards for nondescript play by the week. The longest passes today went 13 yards, a 3rd-and-a-mile dumpoff to Samkon Gado late in the 1st half and a pass over the middle to Daniel Fells (3-32) with the game about over. Brandon Gibson (6-43) was the leading receiver, converting a couple of first downs.  He also had an OPI and a false start. Null tried him deep a couple of times; he got flagged for the OPI on a corner route after not making a sharp enough 2nd cut to get inside Cortland Finnegan. Null’s throw was right there otherwise. McMichael (2-15) made a nice catch in traffic for the Rams’ TD. Danny Amendola (5-19) netted just 9 total yards, losing 10 on an end-around in the 2nd when Fells shoved his man right into his path. Donnie Avery did even less; 1-4 until a 10-yard catch very late in the game, the fifth time this year the Rams’ #1 WR hasn’t exceeded either 2 catches or 20 yards. Rams WRs and TEs caught 19 balls today. Brandon Marshall caught 21 in Indianapolis by himself. There are more ways to describe Rams receiver futility than the Inuits have to describe snow.
