    good week for the rams-nfl results

    seattle lost and hass got hurt (i dont know how bad, but that injury could dramatically impact our entire season). carolina, washington, philly all lost. the only relevant game without the desired result was atlanta beating pitt.

    All told, these are good results for us. The hass injury is critical, if he is hurt badly enough that he cant play in two weeks for our return engagement vs. seattle, that would be a HUGE break for us.

    Good day, but I'd rather beat them with Hass under center. Hope he's not been dinged that badly and can come back for the return.

    Agreed, we need to show people we can beat them while Hass and/or Alexander is in playing. But then again, I don't care because a W is a W and I'll take it any Sunday.

    Same record, but Seattle has all the tie-breakers.......for now. Still, it's great to be right in the thick of the division.

    I also hope Hasselbeck's injury isn't too serious, he's a great competitor and I would feel cheated if we beat them without him. That said, injuries are part of the game and if he can't go, so be it.

    Re: good week for the rams-nfl results

    While i dont particulary wish ill will in the form of injuries on others, i will say this. Seattle, trying to win the superbowl, left plenty of cap on the table and didnt go out and get a proven vet backup at either qb or rb. Injuries are part of the game. I want to win. We have a better chance of beating them without hass than with him. Thus, i would rather he didnt play. Call me a bad guy if you want, but i didnt see anyone around here saying that they wished alexander was playing last week.

    At the end of the day, a win is a win and no one will remember much later about who played and who didnt. Early reports are a strain on ;the knee for hass, no tear, 1-4 weeks.

    I personally would rather win the division, rather than worry about whether someone elses team was at full strength when i played them or not.

    Leaving money on the table cap wise without getting adequate depth is a debacle from the front office. Its the same thing that everyone on this board was screaming about for years with martin, chandler etc. While i appreciate that he is talented, i would MUCH rather play seattle with senaca wallace at qb than hass. The division title will not be tarnished in my eyes if we win it because hass missed a few weeks.

    Not worried at all, I'd just rather beat them when they are at full strength. We've done it before, no reason why we can't do it again.

    We'd be a better team for it.

    Call you a bad guy, GC thats the way it is. I'm sure the Hags fans where heart broken last year when Bruce,Holt,Marc and Martz where not a factor.

    I'm with, I don't wish harm to any players, but when they go down well, time to go to the bench.

    I actually said this GC:

    Re: good week for the rams-nfl results

    I bet Seattle fans weren't too bothered that we were without Bulger, Holt and Bruce as well as Steven Jackson carrying injuries for parts of last season, so I won't complain if we benefit from injuries having an effect on their season

    mike, my apologies for not remembering your quote regarding alexander prior to the first game. Reasonable people can differ on this point.

    Good point! they beat us last year when we also had major injuries to our star players. And i don't think they felt sorry for us at all. However! it would be sweeter to beat them at their best just to make the win more satisfying.

    Re: good week for the rams-nfl results

    I'm also glad San Diego is looking vulnerable. The way the Chiefs were throwing points on the board against them (I think they were up 20-3 at one point), you have to like our chances to pull out a victory next week. I mean this was a struggling Chiefs team with Damon Huard at QB.

    That Atlanta game may not have worked out to our advantage, but it was a thriller. The Falcons threw out all the stops--forcing fumbles, blitzing from all over, an onside kick in the first half, and even Vick firing bombs on target all evening.

    Not a problem my friend. Absolutely nothing wrong with wanting every advantage possible to get a win, especially against an intense division rival. While I would rather beat the opposition at full strength, if a win comes against a opponent dealing with injuries, I'll still take it every time.
