    2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    Last year I hit the nail right on its proverbial head and called the season for our St Louis Rams right down to the wire. I will once again put my meager brain cells to work and let’s see what comes out.

    Week One

    Arizona Cardinals at St Louis Rams
    Sunday, Sep. 12

    The Rams open at home in the “Ed” and should put the Cardinals to the wall. I see the Cardinals as a far better team this year with their new Head Coach Green. But this will be a building year for them and it will take Green more than one season to take this franchise out of the cellar. Rams Win: 1-0

    Week Two

    St Louis Rams @ Atlanta Falcons
    Sunday, Sep. 19


    The Rams go on the road for a match up with Vick and his motley crew. This is one of my 50 – 50 games but I will put my neck on the line here and mark the Rams down for a win in a squeaker. Rams Win; 2-0

    Week Three

    New Orleans Saints @ St Louis Rams

    Sunday, Sep. 26

    Right, its about time we met up with our old buddies from the west. We remind them what they have been missing and quickly stomp on them. This is also the ClanRam Bash so we have a lot to look forward to. Rams Win: 3-0

    Week Four

    St Louis Rams @ San Francisco Whiners

    Sunday, Oct. 3 Sunday night game.

    The whiners will be a bad team this year but I get the uneasy feeling it wont be at this game. The whiners will keep this game close but will still come out losers. Rams Win: 4-0

    Week Five

    St Louis Rams @ Seattle Seahawks

    Sunday, Oct. 10

    This will be a premier match up of two very good teams. It will also be the Rams first loss of the season. Rams Loose: 4-1

    Week Six

    Tampa Bay Bucs @ St Louis Rams

    Monday, Oct. 18

    Rams will loose, what can I say. They just don’t play well under the spotlight. A two game loosing streak and the Rams Nation will be up in arms. Rams Loose: 4-2

    Week Seven

    St Louis Rams @ Miami Dolphins

    Sunday, Oct. 24

    Going into the open week and the Rams are reeling with a two game loosing streak. Will they turn it around? Away from home against the Dolphins. Mmmmm, this is another 50 – 50 game for me but I am going to say. Rams Loose: 4-3

    Week Eight

    Open Week

    Week Nine

    New England Patriots @ St Louis Rams

    Sunday, Nov. 7

    Man, we just come off a 3 game loosing streak then have to suffer a by week and to top it all the Rams Nation is about to implode on itself. What the hell will happen against out SuperBowl nemeses? I will tell you what will happen. We will take them apart. Rams Win: 5-3

    Week Ten

    Sunday, Nov. 14

    Seattle Seahawks @ St Louis Rams

    Seattle Seahawks come to the Ed and go out again with their tails firmly placed between those chicken legs. Rams Win: 6-3

    Week Eleven

    Sunday, Nov. 21

    St Louis Rams @ Buffalo Bills.

    This is another one of my 50 – 50 games and I am really up in the air about this game. Something tells me would could trip up hear and I am going to go with my gut. Rams Loose: 6-4

    Week Twelve

    St Louis Rams @ Green Bay Packers

    Monday, Nov. 29


    Another mouth watering game for the Rams and a Monday night game against a team that we have had the measure of for some time. Only problem is that its been at our home and not at theirs. But you know what, RamDez gut has a good feeling for this game. Rams Win: 7-4

    Week Thirteen

    San Francisco Whiners @ St Louis Rams.

    Sunday, Dec. 5

    Whiners reeling and stagger into the Ed. They leave on their backside as the Rams Stomp all over them. Rams Win: 8-4

    Week Fourteen

    St Louis Rams @ Carolina Panthers.


    Ouch. A game away from home in December against a team the knocked us out of the SuperBowl race. Rams Win: 9-4

    Week Fifteen
    St Louis Rams @ Arizona Cardinals

    Sunday, Dec. 19

    Rams starting to feel good about themselves and this game only makes them feel better. Rams Nation is still in denial over Warner but they start to rally late as the Rams make it 2 against our ***** Boy Green. Rams Win: 10-4

    Week Sixteen

    Philadelphia Eagles @ St Louis Rams

    Monday, Dec. 27

    Eagles come to town, try to take over the Ed but fail in a miserable fashion. Rams Win: 11-4

    Week Seventeen

    New York Jets @ St Louis Rams

    Sunday, Jan. 2

    Chuckle. The Jets will be a good team this season but the Rams are on a roll and we will show the NFL that we are a Power House. Rams Win: 12-4

    Well there you have it. Rams will win 12 games this season. Rams Nation will go through the usual trauma as the Rams have a mid season slump and the by week will come at a cruel time for them. Giving the Nation a extra week to rip themselves apart. Still, they will rally around in the closing stretch apart from the usual suspects.

    My breakdown

    Wk 1 vs. Arizona: WIN. Arizona is making some strides, but like Dez said, it'll be a while before they're really competitive.

    Wk 2 @ Atlanta: LOSS. Honestly, I don't think our defense will be able to contain a healthy Vick, especially now that he has more targets. This could be a shoot out, but I think Atlanta wins at home.

    Wk 3 vs. New Orleans: WIN. I don't expect much from the Saints this season, and I think Aaron Brooks is overrated.

    Wk 4 @ San Fran: WIN. The ***** should begin looking forward to their first overall pick of the 2005 draft.

    Wk 5 @ Seattle: WIN. Remembering last season's game in Seattle, the Seahawks were able to win because of turnovers. The Rams were up 23-10 going into the fourth quarter. I think they can pull off a win this time around.

    Wk 6 vs TB: WIN. The Bucs have a strong defense, but they let guys like Sapp and Lynch walk. The Rams were able to win last season against a strong defense (Baltimore). This one may be ugly, but I think we can win it.

    Wk 7 @ Miami: WIN. If 'Wale does sit out, the defense is that much weaker. This is a 50-50 game, but I'll give the nod to the Rams since I'm a homer like that.

    Wk 9 vs New England: LOSS. While I'm hoping Bulger improves from last season, I don't think it'll be enough to have a great game against the Pats defense. Nor do I see our defense being enough to stop the NE offense. Unfortunately, I think we'll lose this one.

    Wk 10 vs Seattle: WIN. We'll sweep Seattle this season. I'm confident of it. *knocks on wood*

    Wk 11 @ Buffalo: WIN. Buffalo had a fairly good defense last season, but I don't think their offense is good enough to warrant a win here.

    Wk 12 @ Green Bay: LOSS. Rams in the cold at Lambeau. I hate to say it, but I don't think we'll come out with a win.

    Wk 13 vs San Fran: WIN. We'll sweep the Whiners as they continue marking off the days 'til April's draft.

    Wk 14 @ Carolina: WIN. We almost beat them here, and with a better run defense, we should be able to beat them there.

    Wk 15 @ Arizona: WIN. Sweep the Cards and we win the West.

    Wk 16 vs Philly: WIN. I think Philly's overrated, especially the defense. I'm hoping Bulger works wonders against a weakened secondary.

    Wk 17@ NYJ: WIN. I'd like to see a win here, because I think our defense will be able to handle Pennington and the Jets.

    Re: 2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    I see the two most likely losses as at green bay and at seattle. I think we beat atlanta in week two, mainly because while i agree with nicks concern about controlling their offense, our defense is a lot better than theirs. Since i will be at that game proudly wearing the rams colors, i cant pick against us in that game.

    I agree with nick on 13-3, but i cant say for sure where loss #3 will come from. I worry about on the road against sf and arizona. SF is terrible, but they are always up for us and that game is right before the seattle game- a real trap game. Arizona will be much improved and wasnt bad at home last year anyway, so the road game in december coming right before the philly war at home is scary too.

    Health considerations aside, the key to home field advantage in the nfl playoffs is to beat the inferior teams home and road, beat the good teams at home, and split against the good teams on the road. That will get you 13-3, 12-4 at the worst. The trap games kill you every time if you dont watch out, ie see the detroit debacle last year.

    I think if we hope to win the superbowl, the two most important games on the schedule are seattle and philly at home. We really need to win both if we want home field throughout the playoffs. Notwithstanding the carolina game last year, i still like our chances anytime against anyone playing in the dome. Not saying we cant win on the road in the playoffs, but philly on the road in january is no fun.

    The seattle game on the road potentially has the most upside for us. If we beat them on the road, and i hope that nick is correct about that, it will be very, very tough for them to finish ahead of us in the division since i am very confident we will beat them at home, thereby giving us all the tiebreaker advantages.

    ramming speed to all

    Re: 2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    I just love doing this. Problem is that my track record at this stuff really stinks. Bet against me, I'm most often wrong. But here goes.....


    Wk 1 vs. Arizona: WIN.

    Wk 2 @ Atlanta: Win.

    Wk 3 vs. New Orleans: Loss.

    Wk 4 @ San Fran: WIN.

    Wk 5 @ Seattle: Loss.

    Wk 6 vs TB: Loss.

    Wk 7 @ Miami: WIN.

    Wk 9 vs New England: Win.

    Wk 10 vs Seattle: WIN.

    Wk 11 @ Buffalo: WIN.

    Wk 12 @ Green Bay: Win.

    Wk 13 vs San Fran: WIN.

    Wk 14 @ Carolina: Loss.

    Wk 15 @ Arizona: WIN.

    Wk 16 vs Philly: WIN.

    Wk 17@ NYJ: Loss.

    I guess that makes the Rams 11-5, winning the division. Into the playoffs we go.

    Dez, I like everything you did except for this Tampa game. I just don't think we lose to this Buc team and certainly not in the Ed. This Buc team is too far removed from that SB team. Rams 13-3

    Re: 2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    If we're at home against the Jets, I'd say we take it....

    Rams 12-4

    Did you get a chance to meet the real Coy Bacon?

    First of all, as far as I am concerned, YOU are the real coy bacon. The other guy just played for the Rams.....

    No, i didnt meet him, if i had i would have asked him to sign one for you. I picked up an old signed rams item from the early 70's and his autograph was on it.

    HUbison, Yes I agree with you that the Bucs are just not the Bucs of resent time (caught myself there, I almost said the Bucs of old) But its the first Ram Mondya night game of the season and we will be coming off two tough divisional games. I am looking for a big let down and this will be it. Of coarse, if I am wrong and please the football gods that I am, then this will put a different slant on the rest of the season

    Re: 2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    Dez, I've got to dissagree with you on the Tampa game.
    1) The Bucs will be a mediocore team at best.
    2) We have lost to them consistantly over the last 4 seasons. We are due.
    3) Though it's Monday night, It's at home and the Rams do not loose at home during the regular season. (Hopefully the post season too)

    My prediction is 13-3, Win the west as usual, Home field, Super Bowl Champs!

    I see the panthers as a loss so 11-5 for me.

    Re: 2004 – RamDez puts it on the line

    I have to admit, I have trouble ever predicting a Ram loss. However, for the sake of posterity and objectivity, I will make the following preseason picks.

    Wk 1 vs. Arizona: WIN.

    Wk 2 @ Atlanta: WIN.

    Wk 3 vs. New Orleans: WIN

    Wk 4 @ San Fran: WIN.

    Wk 5 @ Seattle: WIN.

    Wk 6 vs TB: WIN

    Wk 7 @ Miami: WIN. (I'll be there!)

    Wk 9 vs New England: WIN.

    Wk 10 vs Seattle: WIN.

    Wk 11 @ Buffalo: loss

    Wk 12 @ Green Bay: loss.

    Wk 13 vs San Fran: WIN.

    Wk 14 @ Carolina: Loss.

    Wk 15 @ Arizona: WIN.

    Wk 16 vs Philly: WIN.

    Wk 17 vs NYJ: WIN

    Final Record: 13-3
