Re: Rams near the bottom in pressure--we are not good

September 26, 2022 05:15PM
JY53, I've learned a ton from you. When I've asked questions, you've answered them. Thanks for what I've learned personally, and for what you bring to the board.

As I read through this thread I was thinking: A night-and-day difference between last year's late season and playoff D and this year so far was the presence of Von Miller. He freed Donald, whose stats improved immediately. You can't double everybody. When that was tried, Gaines got the sack or pressure.

What I saw in the Bills game was a lot of 3-on-1 against Donald - more, it seemed, than I saw early last year. Was I right or wrong?

The still you put up showing Gaines' swim move to go inside, which left a gaping hole for Allen to charge through (which he did) also showed three guys on Donald - one taking him on straight ahead, and two effectively surrounding or corralling him to the sides. Last year I saw Donald drawing 2 most of the time and sometimes 3. Obviously the Bills (before Dorsey broke his tablet) watched a ton of tape - and figured if it took three to stifle Donald, they'd do it.

I posted then: the Bills gave the league a blueprint. Then I read here, Donald is s dud, less effective, etc. which doesn't pan out. He's not wired to loaf.

Questions:

Was I/am I seeing things accurately re: Donald, and if I'm off, where?

If Donald is being bottled up, how would you free him up?

Given current personnel, what would you do to improve our pass pressure - or would you leave as-is?

Your insights would help me and others here anticipate what I might see next time I watch the Rams, and enjoy the game more. Thanks in advance.
