Holden & Danny: If You Don’t Hit RGIII, the Redskins Will Score 45 Points
If the St. Louis Rams aren’t careful, Robert Griffin III will put 45 points on the board.
That’s the opinion of D’Marco Farr, a Super Bowl champion and current color analyst for the St. Louis Rams, who joined the Holden and Danny Show on 106.7 The Fan.
“Robert Griffin III is elite, he’s got the speed, he’s got the poise,” Farr said. “He keeps you on your heels until you can no longer be aggressive. If you don’t put pads on him, he’ll put 45 point on you.”
D’Marco Farr reiterated that he thought this game was going to be closer than people think.
Farr believes the Rams will be able to build off a strong performance against the Detroit Lions in Week One.
“I thought the Rams defense played outstanding, the secondary fooled Matt Stafford,” Farr said. “Cortland Finnegan is a veteran guy and baited Matt Stafford into that pick.”
Although Griffin didn’t throw any interceptions against the Saints, he is a rookie and learning the National Football League ropes. So, what should the Redskins expect out of the Rams offense?
“This Rams offense is going to live and die off what Steven Jackson gives you,” Farr said.
Injuries on the offensive line have been a concern for the Rams all week. However, a key piece of that line was able to practice Thursday after it was initially feared his season was over.
“I thought left tackle Roger Saffold would be out for the year, but he was out there practicing yesterday.” Farr noted. “The left tackle is more than a position, it’s a persona. You are Sam Bradford’s blindside protector.”
Saffold had to be carted off the field last week. A return to the lineup would greatly aide the Rams ability to shut down Redskins linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.
D’Marco Farr was a teammate of London Fletcher in 1999 when the Rams won the Super Bowl.
“London Fletcher is still in the league because he never let the sting of being an undrafted free agent go,” Farr said.
