    With the absence of both Albert and Pouncey who will likely step up? Not just replace those two, but team-wise.

    After having seen the leg on the punter for the Rams (really incredible if you saw highlights of the Rams/Jets game), he's going to give Jakeem a few shots at redemption.

    Aside from this, I really think it's going to be very difficult to give Tanny any time. Maybe align some Tight ends in the backfield?

    This game just got a helluva lot more interesting, and maybe, just maybe, Gase is the guy who steps up with an amazing game plan. Otherwise, it could be another Jets type performance we're looking at.

    I'm thinking that this turns out to be more of an old-school approach for the Fins with Tannehill running for his life and Landry having a big day. I'm hoping for the Ajayi train but not really expecting it with linemen out, so it really looks like a defensive battle. The silver lining is that LA can't move the ball either, so maybe we squeak out just enough offense to take the W.

    Make no mistake though, this is the week 4 team we dreaded all over again- they're just playing with confidence and emotion now. Hopefully that leads to special teams or the D saving the day.

    it is scary to have 2 top linemen and potentially the best players on the team out. How do you recover? The defense playing better helps. Parker back, helps. And confidence is a heck of a thing. Tannehill and Ajayi have this, but most importantly, the coaching now knows the blueprint to win. It will be a scrappy game on Sunday

    I think that we'll probably need to keep seven in to block on many/most passing downs. Three man patterns, and hope that Parker, Landry and Stills can beat their men in coverage to get open quickly. I see fewer deep shots and more quick passes, and hopefully, we can get some good YAC yardage. The Rams nickle DB has been out of practice all week, as has their best pass rusher (Quinn), so that will assist us.

    I'd like the QB to step up, but I know that is asking too much.
