    He's been doing it all year though. 1600 yards and 13 TDs. With a gimpy RG3, shutting down AlMo should be your guys focus. RG3 has been off with his accuracy since his injury as well. Making him beat me would be my gameplan.

    The reason Dallas went with the gameplan of stopping the pass was due to Thanksgivings 304 yard 4TD performance. Pick your poison.

  • When the Hawks REALLY wanted serious pressure on Bradford, they got it.

    It isn't like the Rams scored a bunch of points, they positioned the Line and Bradford in a spot to protect him well, but tried to spread the defense.

    Ultimately, it didn't work.

  • I am also worried about the 6 sacks on Wilson. Anyone want to tell me about that since I didn't see the game? Sweezy?

  • Seahawkgal it was kinda a combo if the whole line. The Rams have a very good defensive line and they were bringing it. The Hawks didnt help themselves by using any plays such as screens or draws to slow down the pressure. Just my opinion but we need to do something different this week if they bring pressure early and often.

    this was in response to a posters concern about morris agaist Dallas so i was just focusing on that game.. i'm fully aware Morris has been outstanding all season... but he can be contained, especially since Bob is a bit gimpy now, he will be a little more one demintional, but still dangerous to scramble as we saw against dallas.. it will be a tough matchup for sure.

    Partially, but most were coverage sacks wherein Wilson couldn't find an open receiver and couldn't escape the pressure (usually from two defenders) when he stopped looking down field.

    They have a great D-Line and sacks tend to come in bunches. It happens.

    Yes. Late in the game they dialed up some blitzing after going 4 man rush nearly the entire game before that. It worked too as Bradford lost accuracy and nearly fumbled for a TD for Seattle (damn tuck rule!!). I also am hoping Pete and Gus chose only to blitz late to secure the win and were vanilla before that so as not to show too much to the Foreskins relative this week.

    IMO


    Partly true. But let's give the Rams some credit, they have a very good front seven (much better than Washington's).........and they truly did play their ass off for pride.

    IMO the stats from the Rams game show that the Rams are a much improved football team that matches up well against the Hawks, rather than anything to worry about with the Skins game.

  • The lack of pressure/pass rush is a concern but IMO it had to do with having a Clemons/Mebane/Branch/Bryant Dline. There's only one pass-rush specialist in that scenario. This is where not having Jason Jones hurts. However, when they put Scruggs in, he was better than Branch but not to the level of Jones. Hopefully, they will be work that out this week. They need to get more pressure on the QB. Outside pressure isn't effective when there isn't any push from the inside. Bradford is as stiff as it comes (terms of mobility) and they couldn't lay a hand on him. Not good.
