Several St. Louis Rams fans are frustrated for various reasons after watching the St. Louis Rams fall to the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend. The team came out extremely flat in the first half and fell way behind before trailblazing their way back into the game before coming up short in the end 31-24.
Fans are frustrated for several reasons. They are frustrated by the conservative play-calling offensively. They are frustrated by the soft zone coverage to start games defensively. They are frustrated by all of the penalties the Rams have committed through the first time two games of the season.
But there were some Rams who played well on Sunday. But who played the best?
Quarterback Sam Bradford chucked the ball 55 times, completing 32 of those passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns. But Bradford checked down to his running backs a lot and there was the tipped ball interception off the hands of a receiver that was returned for a touchdown, the difference in the score. Overall, Bradford played well.
Rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin also played well, catching two of those touchdown passes from Bradford, but dropped a few passes as well and only caught six of the 12 balls thrown his direction.
Defensive end Robert Quinn was a force once again, collection another sack, his fourth on the season, and made four tackles, including another for a loss.
Finally, rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree led the team with eight tackles in his return to the state of Georgia, where he played his college ball.
So which player was the best? Or was there someone else? Vote below.
