St. Louis Rams 3 – Green Bay Packers 21
A down, but optimistic Rams fan, here’s Grey Scherl: Was anyone shocked to see the Rams fall prey to the Packers? I know I wasn’t. Even back before the season started, when I projected a winning record for my home team, I had them pencilled in for an ugly loss in this game. The Packers are the last undefeated team, and it’s not through some random stroke of luck. They are a damn good football team that knows all the right moves to make and the times to make them. They’re a team that held the Rams to a field goal despite allowing them to put up over 400 yards of offense. Take that as either side of the coin, because while they kept an offense heavy team from scoring, they also let a team many call the worst in the league to put up over 400 yards. If anything, the Packers should have been able to win by more, but the Rams should have been able to score. Brandon Lloyd was acquired by the Rams just before I got to writing this, so who knows, maybe it’ll be a new day in St. Louis this week, as one thing the Packers game proved…the receivers are learning how to catch.
Rhett Davis Rams fan #2 was less pleased: Yeck… this game makes it hard to be a Rams fan. Sadly, I watched the Rams be decimated by the Packers in their chilly home of Green Bay. Not much to note from the game other than St. Louis didn’t stand a chance and I can’t see anyone beating the Packers. Packers are my pick for the SuperBowl. Aaron Rodgers looked a lot better than last week’s win having over 300 yards of offense and 3 TDs.
Daniels, a fan of neither, could care less: The Packers trounced a bad team at home. Nothing to see here.
My Take: The Packers did what they should, as the team with the best record decimated the team with the worst. The Rams will have a good offense if they ever get some receivers, as Bradford and Jackson are both good, but no one can overcome those dropped passes or that play-calling. The Packers defense is going to let them down one of these weeks, though, as they continue to play up or down to the competition. That’s strange to say after holding a team to 3-points, but while it isn’t an issue this week, it’s something to watch, if not next week against Minnesota, then certainly the week after when they head into San Diego.
