Found October 05, 2012 on The Sports Rocker:
If Kevin Kolb goes up to each of his offensive lineman, and slaps them, they better not do anything back to him. Ever.


Kolb was sacked nine times in last night's game in St. Louis. Nine times. And that doesn't count the number of times he threw under pressure and was tossed to the ground after the ball was out of his hands. Chris Long, the Rams defensive end standout, said on the NFL Network after the game, "“We sensed some blood in the water." Ya don't say? 

How good was the Rams defense last night?

Nine sacks.
13 hits.
21 hurries.
13 knockdowns.
Over the last two games, Kolb has been sacked 17 times. Someone get that man a chiropractor.

Kolb, Cardinals battered in fall from unbeatens

Video: Rams Cream Kolb and Cardinals

It was a tough night last night for Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb. He was harassed all night by the St. Louis Rams defense with the Rams sacking him 9 times and pressuring him almost every time he touched the ball.

Cardinals' unbeaten season over

Arizona Cardinals 3,  St. Louis Rams 17Except for a few big plays, Sam Bradford (141 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) had a fairly dreadful day passing, completing just 7 of 21 passes.  But those few big plays were exactly what the Rams needed, along with a suffocating defense, to topple the Cardinals and send them to their first loss of the year.  Even though Bradford only completed a paltry...
