No, the Ram defense didn’t look very good Monday night against Denver, but so what? Who is going to stop that offense? St. Louis has too many weapons to defend, and a quarterback who is brilliant at finding the right weapon in an instant. If you think the Rams can’t win the Super Bowl playing defense like that, I would argue that they did last year. Their impressive defensive numbers a season ago were a bit of a mirage. What made the Rams defense so good, was that the offense put teams in a 17-0 hole before they knew it. The opponent would then scrap the game plan, and start throwing the football, and here came the Ram pass rush, led by Kevin Carter. Game over. On Monday, Denver never fell way behind, and they kept handing the ball to Olandis Gary and moving down the field at will. Tennessee, even though it fell behind, did the same thing in the Super Bowl with Eddie George. In a close game against a balanced offense, the Rams will give up some points, but odds are they’ll score even more. Their best defense is an unstoppable offense.
