I disagree with Vinny and some fans.. "weapons" Bump

November 14, 2017 05:28PM
All we hear from media and fans is that the Rams have no weapons, no players that defenses fear.

Well let's look at how Websters defines weapons.

plural noun: weapons
a thing designed or used for inflicting bodily harm or physical damage.
a means of gaining an advantage or defending oneself in a conflict or contest.[/b]

So if we translate that to the football field, we could say a weapon is a player that is used for inflicting damage or gaining an advantage against the opponent.

Can we agree on that? Great

Weapons on offense come in many different forms, the problem is most people are being very shortsighted when defining weapons as they relate to the Rams.

A player that is capable of making "clutch" catches key first downs, plays that extend drives...is a weapon.

A player that is capable of making other players better...is a weapon

Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are weapons.

I consider them both to be "playmakers" capable of inflicting damage to a defense.

Defenses fear "playmakers" because they make plays that prevent them from doing their job.

The job of a defense is to force a turnover or a three and out to get their offense more opportunities to score.

If an offense (Rams) has playmakers that hinder the defenses ability to do its job...that is a weapon.

Chain movers that can extend drives put a strain on a defense. The more snaps a defense has to defend, the more they wear down.

Todd Gurley has the ability to take the ball to the house from anywhere on the field.

Todd Gurley is a weapon.

When Gerald Everette was drafted somebody asked me about him and I looked at his tape and concluded that he could be a match-up nightmare.

I am convinced the way McVay utilizes the hash marks, he envisioned GE creating havoc inside which is why he drafted him.

Gerald Everette is a weapon.

Every year on every team there is a player or players that seemingly come out of nowhere.

If a team has no obvious choices, no low hanging fruit like an AJ Green or a Julio Jones, the team is accused of being devoid of weapons.

The Rams are not without weapons.

They may not be a quick strike offense, but does it really matter if you score?

Mark it down...IF Jared Goff shows improvement and some good health on the o-line, this offense will be very productive.

Bank It.

Another keen observant post back in August. Knowing the definition of how NFL football "weapons" can be wrongfully or correctly viewed based on ones perception of the roster and scheme.

The Rams had the personnel on offense back in August and the Watkins acquisition was an excellent addition added to the underrated collection. This post summed it up about as well as you can.

McVay has a plethora of Rams weapons that he masterfully attacks with...

  None of the "weapons" you listed are proven quantities.
