Listen: Rams, Football And Aaron Donald discussed on WEEI at Night
"Fact, let me reach over hit the button in three two. I've started the clock. Getting you set for Sunday night football on NBC another monster game. This one was flexed out a few weeks ago. Understandably so ram's on the road. Out in Chicago. Division leaders matching up in prime primetime. This just an it'll be chilly, especially at night at Soldier Field. Want to see what the Rams do against the bears defense? Because if you think about the Rams on the road this year, they had major trouble in Seattle. And that's not the legion of boom anymore. Getting it done in the emerald city ram. Saints was an all offensive showcase. And so much of that game might have changed. Its there've been a different call when Sean McVeigh ran a fake punt because you go back and watching the replay is still in the rotation on NFL network. I'm not convinced Johnny Hecker didn't get the yard. He needed to to move the chains and make that successful fake. Punt even though it was reviewed ficials said, no. And that game featured a big comeback by the Rams, but they fell short. So I'm not trying to poke holes in LA at all. I'm not doing skip Bayless as the villain guy here. This is a comprehensive football team. Now, you could say while the Rams have a. Defense especially with Aaron Donald entering the MVP conversation. He's not gonna wind up for two reasons in the history of the NFL only two players have ever won the award coming from defense, Alan page, purple people eaters when Minnesota was making it to the Super Bowl and losing in the nineteen seventies and Lawrence Taylor running wild on and off the field for the New York. Football giants in the eighties. That's it. That's the list Aaron Donald has been incredible sixteen and a half sacks coming from the interior. And he's always commanding a double team opening up opportunities for consumer and others. The Rams issue defensively as them they give up a lot of yards especially on the back end that secondary can be exploited. Now, they finally got a key Attila Leib back and he's playing his way back into football shape. He returned last week in the victory on the roads, Detroit. Want to see what? Mitchell Trubisky can do against a Rams defense that you can move the ball against good news for the Rams is they do buckle down in the red area Trubisky on target more than he was a year ago. The accuracy has improved in large measure because of the play calling in that Nagy has had a Sean McVeigh kind of effect on the bears young innovative head coach who's changed the entire dynamic of that offense. When John FOX was the headman if felt like they were playing in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight football. So. If the Rams are going to get it done in Chicago, they have to take care of Khalil Mack. And I'm not telling Sean McVay anything. He doesn't know Jared Goff has had a penchant especially on the road for throwing some interceptions inside the thirty wanna see how he doesn't prime time. He's been on flammable, and I got to admit you never supposed to be human as a sports talk radio host. But I might have been premature in my assessment year one that golf couldn't play. Well, that was just the Jeff Fisher affect getaway from Jeff Fisher and his regal mustache and good things happen ask Nick foles as case keenum, and that's just part of the list. Although Mark my words with openings in Green Bay. Cleveland Jeff Fisher's gonna float his name out there. Somebody needs a head coach is going to get you a seven nine record every year. So I really think this game to the come down to what Jared Goff does and a critical situation. Todd Gurley is going to get him to tough yards they need, but GOP does not have a lot of experience specially on the road northern California guy. This just in weather is a factor is laid out. Oh, she does is gonna shine in primetime or the bears defense. Be the difference makers in this game coming up who's the most deserving Heisman contender talking college football with call from the open, man dot com.
