St. Louis Rams quarterback Austin Davis may need a sizable ice pack after repeated encounters with Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Jayrone Elliott.

The undrafted rookie out of the University of Toledo sacked Davis three times in four plays in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game. Elliott even forced a fumble on one of the sacks that was recovered by Davis before the Packers could fall on it.

Elliott was mostly taking advantage of Rams tackle Sean Hooey, who had a performance he would like to soon forget.

Elliott didn’t record any stats in his preseason debut against the Tennessee Titans last week but put together a statement performance against the Rams. He was a first-team All-Mid-American Conference player as a senior at Toledo leading the Rockets nine sacks and 14 tackles for loss.

  1. Yes, the Packers are stacked at nearly every position. Easily the best team in the NFC North, and will be a Super Bowl contender yet again.

    Fans of certain purple-clad teams have every right to be jealous.

  2. In no sport do first year pros dominate like they do in the NFL, even undrafted FAs. It’s exciting.

  3. I was listening to the Packer-based broadcast on radio and even their announcers felt bad for Hooey and said (in perhaps the understatement of the week) “He just isn’t ready for the pros.”

  4. Two top five draft picks for St. Louis in the past five years on the offensive line , and the offensive line is still . . . . . well , offensive.

  5. And her come the Viking trolls with Packer envy. It’s got to suck to know you once again have absolutely no shot at a championship. Man how depressing, over 50 years and zero championships, now I understand why you troll champions articles. Geaux Saints, Seahawks and Packers (all world Champions) with classy fans!

  6. Sean Hooey, a PERFECT name for a bad offensive tackle (as in, “a whole lotta Hooey”).

  7. That’s nothing, Mike Sam got one sack. Elliot getting 3 sacks playing scrub is nothing compared to Sam’s one sack playing scrub.

    Do go on about classy. Reread this thread for a whole 2 negative Viking comments, then go read the latest Vikings thread. Case closed.

  9. playing against 4th string ain’t nothing special. Clowns are knocking on MN playing against Cardinals. We’ll see how Packers fair against Cardinals offense and defense. I think Cardinals are legit this year and will be better than the cheese heads.

  10. playing against 4th string ain’t nothing special. This guy can’t even catch my granny. Just another bust for TT and losers in WI. Don’t brag yet. He hasn’t proved anything. Clowns are knocking on MN playing against Cardinals. We’ll see how Packers fair against Cardinals offense and defense. I think Cardinals are legit this year and will be better than the cheese heads.

  11. The Zimmer/ Turner Era is coming Pack fans. Bridgewater is the next great QB. Enjoy what you have now because it is all going to slip away Lombardi Losers…

  12. Another excellent pick from the best GM in the NFL Ted Thompson. Packers have the most complete team in the League, 19-0 could be realistic.

  13. It’s nice to see such uplifting stories coming out of Titletown.

    No shootings, lawsuits, DUI’s or drug suspensions. Just good, wholesome, championship level football.

    The Green Bay Packers.

    Exceptional football for exceptional people.
