Dark Cloud to the Silver Lining
Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled at 7-1, and didn't have any anxiety about today's game at all, it was as dominating as could be. However, there are areas that, if not improved upon, could cost us against good teams.
Unfortunately, two weeks to work on the kick coverage team doesn't seem to be enough. I fear this sub-mediocre play will haunt us later if they don't fix it soon, if not NOW!
As I said in an earlier post - Bobby April has to be the most overrated special teams coach alive. Where on earth did this guy earn a reputation as a special teams "genius?"
The never-ending turnovers are still a huge concern, too.
Of even greater concern is that Warner's hand hasn't healed. It looked like he was floating the ball, and I wondered internally if it wasn't still bothering him. Then, to see him with ice on it late in the game confirmed my fear. I have to wonder now if it isn't worse than even THEY know.
Overall, I'd venture to say the turnovers and not-so-special teams are my only concern right now. Both should be fixable.
As I said before, there is only ONE team capable of beating the Rams - the Rams.
XXXVI...here we come.
From watching the Whiners, they look like our most formidable opponent. Can't wait for Dec. 9th, I'm AT THE DOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anybody notice how much times they fumble the football. This is frickin frustrating, they need to fix it fast before they lose more games like the saints one.

We need to fix the turnover problem and the special teams. We had these problems in the Saints game and it cost us the victory. We were lucky it was the Panthers on Sunday and not a good team. Good teams will beat us if we continue to hand the ball over.
Warner had two weeks for the hand to heal and it still bothers him. I am getting nervous. Martz tore into the special teams during half time and they responded. I think they will eventually play at a higher level. Warner’s injury may not get better all year.
Can we win the division and eventually the Super Bowl with an injured Warner?
Times are desperate...
Not sure I can watch this team anymore...they are aweful. We need a new coach we need a QB. We better look inthe draft for kids that can hang on to the ball.
We just KILLED the Panthers :confused:
Have fun with it
Don't put me in a bad mood on Monday...I had enough of them over the last 10 years.

J-Ram, believe me I am happy with the game and the team. I would feel a lot better if the stinkin whiners were further behind us. I hate that team and it feels like they are right on our heals.
I hear you. I will just feel better when we beat them in the dome.
Thanks for the reality check.

I'm with J-Ram on this one. We Won! Enjoy! Let those whose job it is to worry do the worrying. Hug the wife and kids, J, you'll feel better.
I just looked at the standings, and it says we are 7-1, and in first place. I myself am a little concerned about the mistakes, and you are right RAMble, it could bite us later. However, we are winning and that is all that matters currently.
I,as a Rams fan, realize that I have become spoiled.It is crazy for me to nit-pick after a 48- 14 win,but I still find myself doing it.At least I can laugh at myself.Anyway,we do need to cut down on the turnovers and Warners thumb is a concern,but the Rams are proving they can move the football and score without relying on the deep pass.We know the Rams can run and be successful with a shorter passing game.Hurt thumb and all I still feel confident with Warner in the game.His stats may not be as gaudy,but with the game on the line Kurt will usually find a way to win.
GO RAMS!STAY FOCUSED!WIN!ST.LOUIS RAMS:THE MOST FRUSTRATING TEAM IN THE NFL!!!

I could see defenses adjusting for the short pass thinking that Warner won’t throw the long ball. I would love to see a “rope a dope” tactic by the Rams with a bomb to Bruce in the end zone!
You’re right Aries, Warner will find a way to win.
