    Celebrate*

    The Rams won! Its time to celebrate!*


    *Doesn't it bother you, though, that the Rams can't even put a bad team away at home and, once again, are vastly outplayed in the second half?

    Seems to be a bad trend, that the Rams start out hot early and then either coasts or lose concentration for the rest of the ballgame, no matter what the score. Rams lead Atlanta 21-0 at the half and almost get beat, in the 2nd half, by a backup QB. Linny has to stay on these guys to play 4 quarters of football. Our HC is 3-1 after the bye. His performance in these last 4 games of the season should determine his fate. 7-9, he stays anything less, Cya!

    I'm very happy that I was wrong about Gus. That said, it is disturbing that we can only play 30 minutes of football. Of course, if you think about it, it makes sense. The offensive line is full of backups and street guys, who don't have the conditioning that they need. They stall the offense in the second half, and thusly the defense starts to tire out and lets the other teams come back/solidify their win.

    I'm glad about the victory.

    Now if only they could play a complete game.

    We get a good first quarter and then it slides downhill in one, or more, aspects of the game.

    Does it bothers me? Of course it does, but I understand it.

    ...you see, we can't put a bad team away because the Rams are not a good football team. Why would anyone think this team could put anyone away? Our defense is (still) soft, and our offense is running on half it's cylinders. Not too hard to figure out, really.

    Re: Celebrate*

    Did anyone notice that on the first offensive possession of the 2nd half, the Falcons marched all the way downfield before stalling? Did anyone notice how a 3rd string journeyman QB, who wasn't good enough to start for the Ravens, cut through our defense like a hot knife through butter almost every drive he had the ball? I'm sick of everyone blaming the Rams offense for Haslett's inability to adjust to changes made by the opposing offense. Both Linehan and Haslett seem to lack any ability to make any in-game adjustments.

    I do agree somewhat, I don't think these two guys are on the same page.

    RAMFANRAIDERHATER is spot on, as usual. The Rams are in no position to put anybody away.

    Didn't bother me one bit. In fact I was hoping they'd find a way to lose and they almost did. Darn it!

    Really?

    So, I guess that the Jets are WAY better than the Rams given that they put the Dolphins away this week 40-13 (I know that the Dolphins stink, but you did say "anybody").

    I didn't say so, you said so. You said the Rams are not good enough to put anybody away. I don't buy that. I don't buy the argument that the Rams' tire more then their opposition.

    Don't get me wrong. I am very glad that the Rams won. But, when a team goes up 21-0 at home against an opponent that is NOT superior in talent, you kind of expect that the game won't be close at any point.

    You don't expect that the opposition will have the ball and an opportunity to score the go-ahead TD in the 4th Quarter.
