Rams vs. Cowboys Review

Week three's preseason game against the Cowboys was not the Ram's best showing. According to Jeff Fisher per Jim Thomas on twitter, the rams had 14 missed tackles. Five players had at least two missed tackles. The biggest thing I noticed from Saturday's game was the miscommunication on defense and all the missed tackles. I think the communication will be ironed out by week one against the lions, but all the missed tackles is not something you want to see. Also Janoris Jenkins didn't have his best game as he was picked on the whole first half. He finally looked like a rookie out there getting beat a few times.

On offense I didn't feel good after watching Bradford play the first half. Bradford never got into rhythm and his receivers didn't help. Pead still is struggling on the field, yet Richardson is making a number two running back controversy. Richardson is running hard and getting right up field, while Pead is struggling to make players miss and too busy dancing in the backfield. What the Rams need is a playmaker besides Steven Jackson. Hopefully Givens and Quick will get some work with the starters in the final preseason game. Quick and Givens have big play potential.
