Well after we escaped Indianapolis with a win that woulda/coulda have easily been a loss if it were not for the Defense, the Rams return home for a Sunday regular time game against Tommy and the Buccaneers. We owe this guy a thing or two but he is playing better than ever and with another ring and the many years of experience, there is not much he has not seen in the NFL.

To beat this guy, the Rams are going to have play error-free football, we are going to have to score early and a lot, and we are going to have to knock the crap out of him nearly every play by taking a page from the Michal Strahan and Geeants defense from that Snooperbowl win. You let Brady get into a rhythm and you let him stand back there picking his receiver, he will eat you alive. So, it will be lots of blitzing. Maybe Morris should teach these guys the 46 defense and its subtle variations that Belicheat used against Goff and the Rams in the last Snooperbowl we were in.

At any rate, if there was ever a time for our D to have a field day, this is going to be THE game because we could easily be .500 four weeks from now when we face the Bucs and Cards at home and the SeaHags away. I'll be coming into the board late as I get off work earlier than last season.

Chris Garrett has been activated off the Covid Reserves list and McVay doesn't know if he'll play against Brady and the Bucs. Also, we lost Micah Kiser off the PS. A casualty headed to the Broncos for a one year deal for way more the Rams were paying him.

In the first two games of the season, the Rams handled some of the better D-lineman in the NFL with Akiem Hicks and Bilal Nichols in Chicago and DeForest Buckner in Indianapolis. This week the O-line faces a tandem of Ndamukong Suh (ex-Ram) and Vita Vea, both big run stuffers. Vea, I wanted the Rams to draft in the second round of the 2018 draft but of course, we didn't have a First Round pick then. Suh is 6'5, 320lbs and Vea is 6'4, 346lbs and both together can smother any running game. This is why both Atlanta and Dallas threw alot.

The Rams are going to have use play-action and Stafford's penchant for going deep to neutralize these behemoths. If McVay gets Desean Jackson and Atwell involved in the deep game along with Cooper Kupp. we may be able to score early and often. If we let that D get going, it could be a long frustrating game.

We shall see what the offense is going to do. Two more advantages are: One, the Rams are at home: And two, the Bucs may not have Jason Pierre-Paul either.

This is exactly what the Rams and McSnead needed to do to get Howell and Hall into the game mix. Good move for a change. Michel and Howell as the RBS and suddenly we have some beef in the backfield.

This is bullshit! Kenny Young is playing the best football of his life, he is beefed-up to 243lbs at inside LB, and he bumped the ref coming out of the scrum. WTH is this league bullshit?

I hope somebody or somebodies on the D tomorrow knock(s) the krap out of Brady nearly every play. I want him getting on bitchy and whiney like the Geeants did to him in the snooperbowl and AD did to Brady when we were in the snooperbowl in 2018. Get Brady aggravated (sack him, knock him down, knock his passes down, etc) and we win this game.
