Seahawks-Rams one-liners

The Seahawks managed just 257 total yards of offense in a 20-3 loss to the Rams, their 15th loss in their last 18 road games.

It has now been six quarters since the Seahawks scored an offensive touchdown.

Seahawks rookie T Russell Okung started in his regular season debut, but left before halftime because of soreness in his ankle.

Seahawks kick returners Leon Washington and Golden Tate posted more than 300 yards against the Chargers but managed only 98 in Sunday’s loss.

The Seahawks tried a fake field goal with just over a minute to play in the first half, but holder Jon Ryan was dropped for a nine-yard loss.

The Rams tossed two monkeys off their back on Sunday by ending a 10-game losing streak to the Seahakws and a 15-game losing skid against the entire NFC West.

RB Steven Jackson threw caution about his injured groin to the wind and produced 124 total yards to spur the Rams offense.

The Rams defense had its second straight outstanding performance on third down by limiting the Seahawks to four conversions on 15 attempts.

Said Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo, “Our defense has been resilient and I think part of that comes
from the leadership in the huddle. From the
veteran players who have been in these battles. And when you play
well up front, and guys start believing in each other, you can
overcome a lot.”

Rams QB Sam Bradford completed 23-of-41 passes for 289 yards and earned praise from his teammates for his confidence in the pocket.

  1. I’m not sure Whitehurst is the answer, but I know Matt is too damn skittish, indecisive and is lacking the game time leadership that is needed. He says all the right things during the post game stuff, but just can’t seem to get it to work on the field.

    dooooouuuucccchhhheeee. Let us rams fans enjoy it while we have it. Division lead…yes please.
    Bradford is taking the offense over. He made some pretty good throws and the D played well. Hell, I’ll take two wins. I’ll take .500. I’ll take the division. Go rams.

    It’s called a sign of significant improvement …DA!

  5. @panteraphenomen Try reading that again – no TOUCHDOWNS in the last six quarters. Seahawks got 0 touchdowns. (They did get 4 THIRD DOWN CONVERSIONS, but that’s completely different.)

  6. No i was talking about how he said 6 quarters without giving up a touchdown, and I was saying how 4 of those quarters were against the Seahawks. I applaud the Rams improvement here. But it’s not extraordinaraly special.

    I want to change my screen name to “TossingMonkeys” now.

  8. Pantera, you should applaud them. The Rams haven’t given up more than 17 points in any one of the first four games of the season. Last time you could say that about them? When Fred Dryer and Jack Youngblood were anchoring that defense.
