On defense the d-line stepped up and showed the force they can potentially be. Robert Quinn was all over the place while Chris Long was great as usual. The only bad from the starters was the injury to 1st rounder Micheal Brockers who suffered an injury to his ankle. He will be questionable for week 1 against the Lions. With depth thin at defensive tackle and Brockers getting better each game, the injury to his ankle is a tough loss to the Rams. Also it was great to see Jenkins get a pick and take it to the house. Obviously Jenkins didn't lose his confidence after a not so great game last week.

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.

- Daryl Richardson has speed and quickness, he needs to make the team as the number 3 back
- Joe Long looks very solid on the line in the 2nd half
- Jemelle Cudjo was extremely good against the run and better against the pass

I liked what i saw out of Janoris Jenkins and the D-line. Jenkins looks like the shut-down corner like he's been advertised almost snagging an interception from Andrew Luck. The starting defensive line looks like a force to deal with. With the addition of Langford(free agency) and Brockers (draft) the line has potential to be elite. Speaking of elite, Robert Quinn is going to have a breakout season. He looks so much smoother and comfortable on the field this season.
What I wished I saw was more Bradford. Bradford only played 2 series with the starters and didn't accomplish much. I wanted to see him throw the ball more especially with a new offense and plenty of new receivers. Also Brian Quick showed flashes, I just hope next game he'll get more opportunities and hopefully some reps with the first team.
