    This is the first time since 1978 that...

    ...the Rams have held their first four opponents to 17 points or fewer.

    This is all the more impressive with key players being dinged up. Sgags is really putting together a solid group and doing it in short order.

    the defense was tremendous today. This was the best defensive performance we've had in a long time. We haven't held a team to single digit points since week 11 of 2007.

    Posters can talk about tempering the enthusiasm all they want but it's just nice to have a team that's competitive. We may not make the playoffs. We may not finish .500 or better. Heck we might not win 6 games but with how bad we've been it's hard not to be excited about how good we've played this year.

    I am one of those posters who talks about tempering expectations, but I agree with everything you said. Tempering expectations doesn't mean you don't get excited when the Rams do well; rather, it's a reminder that you're probably setting yourself up for disappointment if you go on to expect a 14-game winning streak and 2010 Super Bowl title.

    As you all know, we ruled the NFC West in the 70's with a pretty stout defense. I was very impressed with the Defensive performance today.

    We probably could get a 14 game win streak and a SB title, anything is possible.
