Iggles Dominant?

I have a question that I know we will be going over and over until monday night.  Are the iggles really good or the rams just really bad?  I was thinking about the rams and for the life of me cannot remeber them being a good defensive team.  So I went to Football outsiders and pulled up their "Just the Stats" tab and looked up team defensive stats for the league for 2004-2007 and they have ranked from 26th - 29th overall defensively.  I do not remember anyone touting their D this year as an area of improvement; but I heard plenty about their O going to be healthy and that they should improve.  I think that the rams had a subpar D and the O could not help out.  Does that mean that the iggles will suck next week?  No, but I do not believe that their current performance will be repeated against Dallas. 

1. The iggles were at home and made good plays against a team that did not show a lot of effort in any phase of the game; the rams looked completely flat.

2. If there are concerns about the D of Dallas not being able to get "sufficient" pressure against the Browns, remember that last year the Browns O-line only gave up 10 sacks last year; they have a very good line; and the D kept that line from establishing any real running game.

3. The availability of the Barbarian will present an interesting challenge to the Boys against the blitz happy iggles; but I have faitht that the redball will have a plan.  The team looked very sharp on O and looks up to the challenge of plug and play with who they have; so I do not think they will despair.  The barbarian injury could lull the iggles into a false sense of security if he is not able to play. 

4. Newman should be back and will help out pacman; who will continue to improve as the season progresses.

I know there are more points to add: please discuss and add points to what you feel will be important for next week.
