    I am sure the excuse train will be arriving soon to unload all of the reasons why they got their asssssses handed to them.

    "We will work on that in the offseason and will get better"

    "We will watch the tape and see where it went wrong"

    "We are committed to get better. We can play better. We just didn't play our best."

    Sound familiar?

    we got shoved around for 4Qtrs.
    I don't know what surprised me more....being gutted on the ground or not being able to get pressure on goff.
    hopefully in the draft we address the 1T spot...and work on tackling.

    Why blame Richard for the lack of talent Marinelli has piled up on the defensive line?

    Yep, a real fat lane clogging tackle, but we won't get that until Marinelli is gone.

    I was at the game. LA froze the linebackers with misdirections just like they do everyone and it worked. But LVE and others in the defensive were on their heels the entire game.

    The front 4 generated no pressures or wins. You have to win at the point if attack and Dallas did not.

    The Rams were the better team today.

    I agree. I don't think it was due to some genius plan by McVay. All the Rams did was run it up the gut all night. Every run play our DTs were getting pushed around and driven back. I saw our DT's on the ground too often.

    Something similar happened against the Colts. Our defense can't handle a talented physical offensive line + physical RB.

    Imagine the rotation with moving Woods to a 3 tech and getting a couple of real 1 techs. You could work with all kinds of combinations

    Mcvay offense and misdirection. Run a lot of plays from the same look.

    The Rams Oline who have had the same 5 starters all season dominated the game!

    I think it validates the idea good defense or not, most games are won with the QB"s arm.

    Choking is when you blow a big lead or fall to an inferior opponent. I saw neither happen last night.

    True, but it’s also a failure to show up and maintaining your performance in a highly important situation, just like our D did.

    Historically, playoff byes and the rest they provide are a BIG advantage.

    Saints game aside, which offensive juggernaut did the defense shut down? In retrospect, it appears Dallas caught the Saints snoozing. IOW, they may have feathered their war bonnet from victories over mediocre and sub-par opponents. That is NOT what they faced last night.

    We were simply:

    1) not focused
    2) out coached...badly.

    Maybe it was all smoke and mirrors with that game making us think this team was better than it was. Also seemed like the slippery field neautralized the d’s speed. We can blame whoever we want, but truth of the matter is, they were just better than the Cowboys on this night.
