To be fair to the Captain, he gets almost zero help. No chipping backs or TEs, and he plays next to maybe the worst starting OL in the NFL.

Left side of the line was a mess today. At some point they’ll have to take the training wheels off PJJ
Pretty sure FroGOAT is now tied for most penalties amongst starting centers so we got that going for us too

Yeah, the penalties on him are concerning but overall I think he’s been adequate.
He had like a 58 rating heading into today - but I think he's about to be credited with the sack Wilkinson got blamed for - I'm not sticking up for Wilkinson - he just wasn't near the defender

Gotta hand it to them. Got out coached in the second half. Have to do a better job.
These post-game pressers are tough. He doesn’t have any answers immediately after the game. The transcript probably look identical to Kliff’s in the last half of last year.

We’re just so bad right now, but he can’t say that. People thought the Rams were hollowed out at the beginning of the year, and they significantly outplayed us.

No way out of this. Just has to fight through it. What happens if Kyler comes back and we still suck?

Well, I guess what I’m getting at is we’ve had some pretty poor center play since Sendlein left (not that he was anything special either).

The road ahead is rough enough. Let’s cross that possibly demo’d bridge when we have to and not before.

Burgeoning superstar Zaven Collins had one tackle today.

Our defense is a catastrophe. Also really interesting that it does t seem like Budda Baker is traveling with the team.

Actually I was mistaken - I don't think they are going to pin the Jonah Williams sack on Froholdt at all - takes place right around 1:18 in

Considering it’s the only team playing respectable football in the state, I highly doubt that
I don't even know their record. I do know they won yesterday so I guess the fever is sweeping across the state.

Can anyone name one position that is improved in first six games of the season under the new staff?

I am not trying to bait ( as @DVontel would say ) , I am genuinely wondering where is the improvement that we can say OK, we may be good at this position next year?

So far, play calling in first half has been really really good the first six games.

This is actually hard once you think about it. I would say the OL but I think they’ve looked about the same every game. I think if we got a new LG we’d be a lot better though.

Ol is better. OLB is better.

Yeah that’s not a particularly talented rams team defensively.

And the oline has been trending downward against lesser dlines than those against which they performed admirably to start the season.
