    Bernie: Rams have big chance to show progress ..

    Bernie Miklasz Saturday, October 2, 2010 12:20 am


    The Seattle Seahawks will be at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, and this is only the Rams' most important home game since the 2006 season. It's the last time the franchise had a mathematical possibility of making the playoffs.

    Not that we're ready to put the 1-2 Rams in the playoff-contender category. Not at all. But for a forlorn franchise that spent the previous three seasons riding on a downbound train, this is a pretty big deal, to have a chance to be 2-2. It's been a while. The 2007 Rams got off to an 0-7 start., the 2008 team was stuck at 0-4 a month into the season, and the 2009 Rams lost their first seven games.

    Considering that the Rams' combined September-October record over the previous three seasons is 2-21, the opportunity to be 2-2 is an appealing objective. And it would represent tangible progress.

    We're not talking miracles here. This is about reversing a pattern of chronic losing. And reversing the horrible trend of losing games at home, and losing games in the NFC West. Since the start of the 2005 season the Rams are 4-27 in division games, and that includes a 1-15 mark at home. Unless the Rams can begin to beat up on the NFC West teams that have bullied them, their torment and frustration will continue.

    So it's time to make a stand. Yes, even with an injured Steven Jackson. The Seahawks are 3-14 in their last 17 road games, and two of the wins came in St. Louis. That means Seattle has lost 14 of its last 15 road games in places other than The Ed. This is an ideal time for the Rams to fight back and let the rest of the NFL know that things are finally changing in St. Louis.

    "I wasn't here last year," rookie quarterback Sam Bradford said, in a conference call with Seattle reporters. "So I couldn't tell you exactly what that culture was like before I got here. But in talking to some of the veterans, the guys that have been here, they seem to feel like we are moving in the right direction."

    The Rams should settle for nothing less than a win and a 2-2 record
