    Can I just say that that fake FG touchdown...

    ...is the most excited I've been while watching the Rams in a long time

    It may only have been a little thing in the grand scheme of everything else - and I know there's a long road ahead - but it was great invention and had me up off the seat cheering in a way I've certainly not done all season (and for a fair while before that too).

    So while people are (and rightly) urging caution and reminding each other that we still suck and we've played a lot of garbage this year, sometimes it's nice to revel in the 'moments' that make sport so awesome in the first place.

    Great playcalling and execution. Right down to the way we played them with the fake initial setup and timeout.

    People can write reams about the rest of the season (both played and yet to come), or even on the game itself, but that 15 seconds or so was pure footballing joy.

    agreed. If I wasn't watching the game on my laptop, which was in my lap at the time, I would have been almost certainly up out of my seat as well.


    excellent post.

    Oh, and welcome to the clan!

    Thanks shower beers.

    Lucky for me the laptop was sat far enough away that it didn't go flying!

    Easy to lose sight of the little moments, when the game's so long and the season even longer. Just thought it was worth savouring because it's things like that - the invention, the spontaneity, the way those plays make you feel...it's all that which makes the rest of it so worthwhile.

    Glad to be here

    It was a good moment. They had us hook, line and sinker.

    Going for it on 4th down, maybe not, can Josh kick one that far???? the questions echoing .....but never a thought of a fake field goal.

    What a nice surprise...
