    My radar is kinda like the weather. There is a 50-50 chance the RAMS will win. We'll know the results about 3 pm CST on Sunday.

    Does this all really matter? Probably not, but builds great anticipation for this game!

    CBS picks against the spread, so the more accurate statement is that 5 out of 6 pick the Rams to cover.

    Not a bad bet IMO. Division leader 3.5 point dogs at home? I think we all agree that this will probably be a close game.

    For true "Pick to win" picks you need to go elsewhere though:

    3/8 @ ESPN: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/features/talent
    0/4 @ Yahoo: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/pickem

    In the HUbison poll, 1 of 1 people polled pick the Seahawks to win. I've seen a lot of numbers that would lead to believe otherwise, but my gut tells me we're still not ready for the Seahawks.

    But then again, I've had a stomach virus all week, so maybe my gut isn't the best source.

    Re: Cbs Picks

    I'm guessing that those 6 "experts" that Sportsline has haven't even watched the Rams for more than 6 quarters this year. Apparently crunching statistics from previous games earns you an expert tag. I just finished reading Sportsline's quarterly grades of the NFL in which the writer has Stephen Jackson as a runner up for offensive player of the quarter. I'm guessing he looked at the stat page which had Jackson leading the league in rushing yards and decided he must be the reason the Rams are doing well. But any Rams fan knows that Holt, Bulger (or could argue for Bulger), and even Pace have been more valuable thus far than Jackson. All these "experts" do is read and analyze, as easy as their job is you would think they could watch all the games and make evaluations as they see them rather than how the box score sees it, but that would make too much sense.

    ESPN's Michael Smith is one of the best at doing this and one of the only experts that I will trust for good analysis.

    I just looked at espn picks and 4/8 chose rams to win, I guess 1 of them made a last minute change..
