Because you can never have enough cornerbacks -- ever. Kevin King and Jaire Alexander were hurt at the time and made sense to add depth.
I believe he's a healthy scratch, but I don't know for sure.
He's going to play, that's for sure. They've got to get Kenny Clark some rest. He's playing way too many snaps and it is warm today.
I think it will have to come down to pressure from the slot corners. Find a way to get pressure on Goff with DBs without giving up the deep ball. But it means someone is going to have to get their hands on those receivers.
Yeah, in this game, I would not defer.
Yeah, and no one is trading pass rushers. You'd be an idiot to do that.
Yes, it is over the top. I don't expect them to win either - check my column from this morning, I broke down the next five weeks and made a case for why they don't have to win.
Yeah, I kind of feel that way. But if they score quickly and get out to a lead, I want to see how the Rams react. Making them play from behind would take a little bit of stress off of stopping Gurley. Then again, they're always going to be patient enough to stick with the run, unlike the Packers.
I can't say that I feel the same other than they know chances of them running it aren't very high.
No, I don't expect it to be a factor at all. They've got misters on the sideline. I don't think it will be an issue at all.
Yes. And that's where the no-huddle might work. Make Donald and Suh stay on the field. You don't have to play hurry up but don't let them substitute. Try to work the ball down the field with long sustained drives.
It would be dumb if they do, IMHO. Got to have a run threat with Jones.
Because his contract is expiring, I would say that's about the highest they could get.
I don't know if it's disappointing necessarily, but I thought Brice would be better. I guess I'd have to say Kevin King. We knew about the injury factor, but his last two games haven't been very good.
No, guac. Not much to eat here. Good thing I ate at the hotel.
I mean, who really would have said that? Mark Murphy? He's the only one who could fire McCarthy. Gutekunst has no say. You can surmise that, but it's in no way being ordered.
This is an old stadium. And their owner is only one of the five richest men in the universe.
