The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
The good.......there was very little in the saints game.
The bad.........there was alot!!!
I was kind of afraid that the saints were going to pull off a victory. If anyone read my last post which read: Will the saints go marching on. It talks about a possibility of them having our number. For some reason the team plays with added intense due to their coach and team mates being fired up since we have been ex-superbowl winners who have won with bull **** flee flickers and screens and fancy plays. The saints coach seems to think that we are a bunch of crap players with crappy non-football plays.
Truth is, the Rams beat the Rams fair and square!!! We lost the game due to silly penaltys, fumbles, interceptions, costly errors, un-special teams, blown plays and a missed field goal. If we played error free football or at least hanged on to the ball without giving it away with our fumbles and interceptions, we would have won yet as murphy's law plays out so many sundays, it was a game of 'what can go wrong will go wrong' and to think that the Rams are exempt from murphys law is wrong! It was bound to happen and I say good, why?
Well, lets just say that the next time we play the saints on their turf, it will be a different game. We should learn from our mistakes and hopefully on the next meeting, we will be playing with a healthy Faulk, and fumbleless game, a zero interception, a game plan that will have many flee flickers, trick plays so that it will inferiate the saints coach and perhaps a few on side kicks to boot ;-). I think that the Rams have learned a valuable experience of this loss and that if they can bounce back and play with added aggression due to this loss, perhaps this will propel them into the nfc playoffs.
This game against the saints truely was a horror film for the players as well as the fans and we didn't even get to see georgia for her halloween yearly appearance :mask: , darn!!! I believe that we see the saints mid december again. I will hope that we will bring with us a more intense game plan and an error free game in the georgia dome so that it can erase this bad taste that this last game left. And I hope that Martz will remember what the saint's coach said about the Rams and their so called plays so that he can fire up the team to seek revenge. I honestly don't think that the saints coach should be talking smack until he takes his team to the big dance and wins the big one! Rememeber, we walked the walk and can talk the talk since we are a past victorious superbowl team.
We now have a 'bye' week to rest, gather our thoughts and hopefully allow Faulk to return with 100% healed on his knee.
I predict a victory againt Carolina after the return from the bye week yet I will go out on a limb and predict.......no.....wait........
I guarantee a victory (IE: Joe Namath/broadway Joe) against the saints on December 17th by at least 10 points that way we could listen to the saints coach come up with all of his excuses as to why his team lost against a team with bull **** flee flickers and trick plays.
Well Martz has decided to let the Rams take the bye week off and has been rather casual about our loss to the Saints.One thing about Martz,he does not ride the fence.With him ,it's either feast or famine,Glory or goat.Martz will never be labeled mediocre.That is Rams football,and one thing our team will never be is boring.
GO RAMS! STAY FOCUSED! WIN!ST.LOUIS RAMS:THE MOST FRUSTRATING TEAM IN THE NFL!!!

We are totally forgetting that there were good points in the game.
1. They only beat us by a FG.
2. Two back to back TDs, one because of an interception.
3. Defensively, Zgonina was hungry for hits and Wistrom got 3 sacks and a big hit.
I challenge all to look at the good in this game. It's there if you look. Sure, the bad offset it all in the end, but it was only a big win for the Aints because it was us. (sorry, the mother in me is coming out wanting to defend her children)
