Amidst all the chaos of the Rams building a 21-0 first half lead, then blowing that lead in an eventual 34-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, perhaps the most intriguing moment of the day came on sideline, when tight end Jared Cook shoved quarterback Austin Davis, even though it seemed like Davis was only trying to console Cook after he dropped a sure touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.
From the secretaries in front to the office workers in back, to the coaches and players milling about, hardly anyone seemed to be in a good mood one day after the Rams blew a 21-point first half lead in what proved to be a 34-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The St. Louis Rams led 21-0 midway through the second quarter on Sunday, but were unable to hold onto that lead, as the Dallas Cowboys scored 20 straight points to get back into the game, then outscored the home club 14-10 in the fourth quarter to earn themselves a 34-31 win at the Edward Jones Dome.
St. Louis’ Austin Davis had three touchdown passes, but a late interception sealed the deal.
It’s looking more and more like the most important part of Jeff Fisher’s statement from Monday, regarding the Rams’ quarterback situation, was the last three words.
Looking to avoid any sort of quarterback controversy this year, Jeff Fisher insists that Shaun Hill will start if he’s healthy this weekend. But that simply begs the question, “Will Hill be healthy?”
When the St. Louis Rams and Dallas Cowboys meet for an NFL Week 3 matchup at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, they will do so as two clubs that feel a whole lot better about themselves than they did this same time last week.
