    Can we please place the blame where it deserves to be?

    There is only one person to blame for us losing...

    Mike Mitchell.

    For those who don't remember, he's the guy who pushed Bradford and made him land all weird and took him out for the season.

    So stop blaming refs and this and that. We all know what the problem is.....Mike Mitchell. You want to thank someone for making sure we don't go to the playoffs....Mike Mitchell.

    It's funny because a couple of months ago, I posted a rant about how Bradford was just average and how I didn't see him as our QB 5 years from now, but that doesn't mean he's a scrub. He may be average, but compared to Clemens, he's Joe Montana.

    So please Rams fans, if you are going to blame someone, blame Mike Mitchell. Otherwise, it kinda makes us look like sore losers.

    I agree with you that Bradford is a serviceable, albeit very expensive, starter. I don't follow your logic that because he's out of action the Rams are a terrible football team. If they were very good it wouldn't make much of a difference who the QB is. He's a serviceable QB on a bad team with marginal coaching. That's not a formula for winning in the NFL IMHO.

    That just doesn't make sense to me. So you are saying if Tim Tebow was the QB for the Saints it wouldn't make a difference? I think it would make a huge difference.

    To believe that a QB doesn't matter is ridiculous. If QB wasn't that important, it wouldn't cost so much to get a good one. It's a reason that their the highest paid on the team (if they're worth it). With Bradford, I'd say we're a playoff capable team. With Bradford, we're contenders, without him, we just get to watch our defense A LOT more than we'd like to.

    So Sam going down should be the reason for the hideously stupid play that we continue to see?

    I'm not blaming Bradford. How can you blame someone not even on the field? If you wanna blame someone off the field, blame Mike Mitchell.

    As for the play, the offense is exactly what I thought it would be without Bradford. Defense is just on the field too much. No defense can hold up with an offense run by Clemens.

    sure, i get mad at officials like basically everyone lol

    but i don't blame them for losses, though sometimes they CAN REALLY mess things up, ask the packers

    like i've said many times, i question the position coaches and D coordinator, and Schotty for a time but he's been getting blamed for a while...

    eh...things will work themselves out in time

    It is unfortunate that Bradford gets injured on that play, but as far as I can see Mitchell does nothing wrong - until he starts his celebration.

    Instead blame the turf monster and Santa Claus!
