DALLAS - Whenever a team has a brutal performance the first think anyone tries to do is find a positive. Unfortunately for the Rams there really aren’t any. They converted just one third down attempt. They were manhandled in all three phases of the game (offense, defense and special teams).
Even when Dallas tried to give them hope with an early turnover they did nothing with it.
So finding a positive within the game is next to impossible. The only thing the Rams can do is simply look to the next game, which happens to be on Thursday against the 49ers.
Is that the positive they were looking for? Is it a good thing they get to be back on the field so soon?
“I think so,” defensive tackle Michael Brockers said. “Playing next Sunday you’d have to think about this game all week. It would be dreadful. I think playing on Thursday is a big thing for us because we can move onto the next thing. It’s another game. It’s a long season.”
Tight end Jared Cook disagrees.
“Not necessarily. That was a pretty poor performance collectively so it’s not necessarily a good thing. We have to be professionals about it. We have to get ready, get geared up and go get it,” Cook said.
“Anytime you’re a part of a team you’d like to think that this shouldn’t happen, it wouldn’t happen,” Sam Bradford said. “Maybe this is a good reality check for us. Fortunately for us we get to get back on the field in four days and we don’t have to think about this one for too long. We got to put it behind us and get ready for San Francisco on Thursday.”
