Chicago loss a flashback to 2011 puny attack

Sam Bradford absorbed six sacks and Steven Jackson rushed for just 29 yards. The St. Louis offense, so potent the first two weeks, found no holes in Week 3. The 23-6 loss at Chicago was an uncomfortable flashback to 2011, when the Rams were at the bottom of the NFL with a 12-point scoring average.

Did Jim Haslett fail to use secret weapon in Redskins-Rams?

This is from John Keim: "OK, I’m tired of talking about the Rams’ game too. But a couple more things. One reason rookie corner Richard Crawford had success vs. Danny Amendola on the two times he faced him? He’s covered him already.
