We were given a layup with the Philly game but blew it. They better show up or its going to get ugly quickly! I think the Rams are ripe for the taking because they flying high after whipping a Colts team that is TURRIBLE (Barkley voice) however, they gotta play!

When the score was 10-0 and we were at their 4 and threw two consecutive fade routes, I thought we were done! We had just run the ball down their throats but start throwing fades to Doctson who seem to be the ONLY route they trust him to run. But we held on...tough game next week.

But hard to figure on game day. He doesnt seem to 'fit' the offense meaning his natural movements seem out of sync with what they want him to do. Garcon (who they should have signed) was a fit, quickly in and out of breaks, tough and could catch in traffic Pryor is slow in and out and drops too many passes, especially in traffic. If this is a contract year and he is starting out like this!?!?
He struggled in the first half, it was his first pro carries but did better in the second as the went to some zone read plays (which he ran at Oklahoma). I think with some more reps in practice he'll be fine. Especially with Thompson being as explosive as he is...we dont need him wearing down so Perine is going to get carries.
