Re: The Rams run 3WRs as a base offense

October 10, 2018 02:17PM
They have since last year. Now I totally disagree with you that our TEs stink but what is plainly obvious to see is that the Rams love Cooks, Woods, and Kupp. All of them on pace for well over 1000 yards

Jemach all due respect but the Rams don’t have a TE problem they have a plethora of WR talent and a RB that runs some of the routes the TEs might. I don’t alway agree with zn but as he has said a dozen times now its pretty obvious that McVay is using his WRs much like Martz did with the Rams. At least early on here

Also during the Vikings or Chargers game the announcers were talking about Everett and commmented how well he was playing in camp prior to his shoulder injury. He said that McVay told him he had planned to run more 2 TE formations but changed up when the injury happened and we should plan on seeing it more as the season goes on.

Anyhow I know the TEs are a big issue for you but I’m not sure why with the way the Rams are so dramatically moving the ball doing what they are doing.

Since we get a weekly update of Cooks vs. Watkins, I thought I would start a game by game look at our TEs, players who somehow get less attention or critique than a guy who isn't with the Rams anymore. Now, in all fairness and for total disclosure, this does not account for blocking, something that is important for a TE, especially when you have a Gurley.

Through 5 games
Higbee Targets - 9 Receptions - 5 Yards - 64 TDs - 0
Everett Targets - 8 Receptions - 6 Yards - 57 TDs - 0

Higbee Targets - 29 Receptions - 16 Yards - 205 TDs - 0
Everett Targets - 26 Receptions - 19 Yards - 182 TDs - 0

Per game average
Combined Targets - 3.4 Receptions - 2.2 Yards - 24.2 TDs - 0

As you see per game average, remember, that's for 2 players, not one.
