Quarterback Marc Bulger was honest when a reporter asked him about the Rams being much better at home than on the road.
Bulger: "The last couple of years, we haven't been good anywhere. But certainly we are not as bad as we were last week."
The Rams can make the Giants work this week if their pass rush can bother Eli Manning. Manning was very effective against the Redskins when Washington did not force him to make difficult decisions. He threw an interception when the Redskins hurried him, forced him out of the pocket and gave him more to think about downfield.
The Rams' secondary showed no ability to stop the Eagles' receivers last week, however, and Plaxico Burress presents a brutal matchup. Another loss by the Rams would drop them to 0-2 heading into a Week 3 matchup at Seattle. The Rams have played the Seahawks tough most of the time, but winning at Qwest Field has been difficult for them.
