    I agree would be interesting. Just make sure you set out the criteria for each before hand, I know I'd let my own bias sneak in otherwise.

    Dallas Game: (Jake Long didn't have the greatest game)

    - sacks not on bradford, announcers think Pead failed to help J.Long and he was expecting help


    - no one open, bradford tries to step up and sacked.


    - shocker, Left Guard gets beat and fell down


    - Dahl doesn't do well at picking up the stunt; can't tell if bradford was waiting for receiver to come out of his break or just wasn't open


    - D.Ware beats Long, but so does the LG as well.



    - RT (Barksdale) Whiffs completely and allows free runner at bradford



    Niners game - going off of this highlight video at nfl.com


    1st sack - 25 seconds, bradford has no shot. Before he even fakes the ball to the back, the RG is beat.
    2nd sack - (1 minute) mark. I put this on the pass pro. Drich shows why he shouldn't be picking up blitzes here, as he severly lacks strength. Jake Long doesn't do that well either on this play, WTF is Cook doing? I'd put that sack on him as much as Drich. I don't think Bradford had enough time to set his feet and throw
    3rd sack - Ball gets knocked loose, LG beat once again. One might argue that bradford could have thrown it, but in reality he saw nothing open at the right and as he was looking to the mid/left the ball got knocked loose. (last shot from behind the qb helps show this)

    Doesn't show the other 2 sacks

    sure - but for some of those you don't need to see how quickly the protection broke down.

    Keep in mind that with D.Rich we also had no running game to speak of - and that pretty much allows a defense to pin its ears back and go after the qb

    You missed the fact that you both read this and felt strongly enough about it to comment. Anything that motivates you that much can hardly be described as a waste of time. IMO of course. I read lots of stuff that I don't like/agree with but it's all mentally engaging to me. Seems like it is for you too or you would have just moved on without comment. ;)

    When someone starts an article saying this;

    "Let's face it, I don't watch the Rams much unless they are facing the Seahawks or Niners, and neither do you if you live outside Missouri."

    You really got to wonder if he can say anything credible about the team.

    Exactly, as i pointed out and quoted in the "other" thread. This writer trashes the Rams. Period. Its garbage.
    The draft just needs to get here so we can stop feeding attention to crap like this.

    And you've followed my posts for years CGI, so you know that i've been both supportive and critical of Sam. I cannot support crap like this making it into our board TWICE.

    I don't know about the rest of the folks, but I'm REALLY looking forward to your responses on the subject.

    FWIW, I was initially tempted to comment about this article which I happen to think was very well written, regardless of the responses and emotions it has provoked. For now, my only comment is; while reading the article I did hear the tinkle of bells and therefore, there must be a ring of truth surrounding the subject....with bias of course.

    Those stats seem pretty consistent with any QB that I have ever seen in my life. The only times we ever beat Montana, was when Greene was putting him on his back. Look how we beat some really good teams the last few years...by dominating them with our defense.

    So, what does that tell you? You need a dominant defense, and a good OL to be a dominant team.

    I'm working on it, but it may take a couple of days (minimum) given the workload I have at the moment. It would be nice if my sole means of employment was blogging about football, yeah? I'd image that piece (the OP) took a few days to put together with all the video watching, amateur stand-up comedy routine material, and research, so I intend to devote an equal measure of time (albeit only to the analysis). My main theme is going to be execution, however. It's my goal to illustrate, in detail, how the Rams don't draw up plays that don't work. In spite of that, they often don't though. And from what I'm seeing, it can be greatly attributed to player inexperience - and rightly so - given the youth of this football team the past couple of years.

    Maybe for about 6 months and then I think you'd change your tune.

    You could be right, but then again ... I'd actually be ALLOWED to make videos and host them when illustrating my points.

    Of course this article was written. It's hate Sam Bradford Offseason. This guy just got the memo.

    (hoping the video stays up long enough to make this point)

    Here's a quick glimpse into what I'm going for here. This is in response to the assertion that (per the author) IT WAS TORTURE to watch all of Sam's throws (which sets the bias tone for his entire article, but anyway...). We'll pick it up here in the third quarter of Week 6 against Houston. 2nd-and-12, Rams up by 11 at the Texans 41 with 9:02 left in the quarter. Here the Rams run play-action to try to give Bradford a clean pocket. The Texans rushed five, and the Rams had Stacy stay in and block. Simple enough, yeah?

    The only problem with this plan is that Stacy hadn't perfected his pro-level blocking yet. As you watch, you'll see him fanning out to pick up Brooks Reed (58) on a chip before settling in the flat as the outlet receiver (or so it appears). BUT. He actually trips up Jake Long giving Reed a free path to Bradford. He's not done there though, because he also runs into the back of Chris Williams on his way to his "route." Bradford, relying on the protection drawn up (crazy, eh?) has Cook as his primary on this play and he throws anticipating Cook's break towards the sideline, releasing the ball before the cut happens. He gets it off, Reed bangs into Sam instantly, and the pass is an absolute strike that hits Cook right in the hands. Shiloh Keo had good coverage on this throw, but the end result was a 34-yard gain because the throw beat Keo to the outside.

    This is an execution failure, but STILL was successful because Bradford (the guy who always folds under pressure) stood tall in the pocket.

    Just wait until I show you a collaboration of the execution failures that took points off the board.
