Knowing about the quarterback struggles of Matt Schaub, who on the Rams’ defense do you feel can make the slump of Schaub continue? Having to face a QB that has his back against the wall, is that a good or bad situation for the Rams to be in?
Looking at tape this week, I’m sure Janoris Jenkins, the leader in defensive touchdowns last season, will licking his chops thinking about Matt Schaub throwing the football. Assuming Andre Johnson actually suits up on Sunday, the St. Louis Rams will likely have Jenkins shadowing him for most, if not all, of the game. If there is any player that can bait and take advantage of a poor decision by a quarterback, it is Jenkins.
However, I wouldn’t say the St. Louis are in a “good” situation, facing a quarterback on the verge of losing his starting job, and a head coach that is on the verge of losing support from his fan base and his locker room. The anger and frustration from the Texans could certainly swing either way on Sunday.
