Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals: Best/worst overreactions Best overeaction:The defense for the Los Angeles Rams is deep Johnny Hekker Jersey , dangerous, and they’re only getting better.What might seem like a overreaction to the greatness of the Rams’ defense for some is the lack of competition, which isn’t the Rams’ fault. But the Arizona Cardinals’ offense was borderline middle-school level. And against Sam Bradford, it’s easy to look fast and scary. The guy’s natural resting face makes it look like he’s getting mugged. Both Bradford and Derek Carr addressed the Rams’ defensive line threat by getting the ball out as quick as possible — and in both instances, it worked out for the Rams. S John Johnson III and FS Marqui Christian both had strong days again and many are tooting the horn that Johnson is a future superstar in the league. I’m on that wagon as well; he’s been great for the secondary, I can’t say enough about him. That play in which Johnson, on 3rd-and-6, tackled TE Seals-Jones for a 5-yard loss was breathtaking.Worst overreaction: The injury to K Greg Zuerlein isn’t that big of a deal because we have Johnny Hekker — that guy can do anything!Rams fans — we have a kicker issue again.Listen, I love our punter Michael Brockers Jersey , Johnny Hekker. He’s funny, charitable, and just happens to be the best punter in the league. And it was a great to see him step up and kick a 20-yard field goal. However, Hekker is not a field goal threat. We can't pull off two-point conversions like we did on Sunday — it’s exciting when the game is in hand, but that’s not how championships are won. When the Rams play a team like the Minnesota Vikings for example, they are going to need every advantage possible. And that means they’re gonna need Zuerlein healthy. Overall, it was a great day for the LA Rams. They proved that they’re the real deal and they can handle a team like the Cardinals with no problem — even without a kicker! However, Rams fans need to pray for the health of Greg Zuerlein because he’s VERY valuable to this team. But if all else fails, we still have a badass defense.Los Angeles Rams vs. Los Angeles Chargers: Final injury report leaves ILB Mark Barron DOUBTFUL third week in a row The Los Angeles Rams got a favorable final injury report heading into Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers:2018 LA Rams Week 3 injury reportNamePOSInjuryWed. StatusThu. StatusFri. StatusGame StatusNamePOSInjuryWed. StatusThu. StatusFri. StatusGame StatusThe trio of LT Andrew Whitworth Ethan Westbrooks Jersey , DL Michael Brockers and C John Sullivan are all a go with no new injuries from the week of practice.And while K Greg Zuerlein still needs a few more weeks at a minimum, there’s no certainty to ILB Mark Barron’s timetable. For the third week in a row, he missed all three practices and is listed DOUBTFUL. His absence doesn’t line up with Head Coach Sean McVay’s previous comments.In late August, McVay said Barron “has been practicing. He practiced last week. If he had to, he could play, but we had a long-term plan in line for Mark and this is kind of just par for the course for what we anticipated.” Then heading into Week 1, he noted, “It’s not looking great, but we’ve still got some time being that it’s a night kickoff and different things like that John Sullivan Jersey , so we’ll see.”Now two weeks later, things seemingly haven’t improved at all. Given that the play of RG Austin Blythe has pushed him into the starting lineup leaving RG Jamon Brown sidelined, I think it’s fair to begin wondering if there’s something similar going on with Barron. The Rams’ defense was stellar against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. If the “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” principle applies to Blythe on the OL, perhaps it should apply to the ILBs if they continue to support one of the NFL’s best defenses capably.As for the Chargers, it’ll be gameday decisions for their injured trio:2018 Los Angeles Chargers Week 3 injury reportNamePOSInjuryWed.
