I'm kind of wondering if Faulk was benched for an extra game more because they didn't want to be tempted to try to run rather than because he really needed another week off. Against the Steelers, you pretty much know that trying to run to set up your passing game is pointless.

Yeah, but that said, the Rams' backup still managed to rush 81 yards and 3 touchdowns... pretty damn good for "not trying to run"

If you really think Dewayne Washington can consistently cover Torry Holt one-on-one, you're smoking some bad crack.

Hell, I don't care how good a corner you have, Torry Holt needs double coverage. And yes, I understand that that implies a zone elsewhere on the field. Heck, maybe that's what they should have done - set one back (rotating, to keep them fresh) on Holt at all times, and then played zone.

Back in the early 90's, when I lived in Dallas, I watched a lot of Cowboys games. That strategy was used consistently by opposing teams to keep Michael Irvin from touching the ball, and it worked. Other receivers will have an easier time, but you take the big-play man out of the game.

Seriously, though, I don't think that would have worked in this case. Too many good receivers, too good an offensive line... What have other teams done against the Rams? I remember hearing that the Steelers game was one of their best - how did other teams defend against them? A better pass rush?
