    Gotta love the "yeah, but..." crowd

    The Rams finally won a game! I don't know about you, but I feel good about that. In fact, it really made my Sunday.

    Not surprisingly, though, on this message board and others, there are plenty of "yeah, but..." posts. You know the kind.

    "I'm glad the Rams won but, Bulger still sucks/the offensive coordinator still needs to go/the WRs are terrible/the Lions are a bad team/we still are bad/blah blah blah blah blah."

    I'm not going to debate whether these criticisms are valid. Many of them have validity. That's not the point.

    The point is... just enjoy the win. We all know this team has a lot of problems and will likely have some very tough weeks during the second half of the season.

    But for today, let's just enjoy the fact that the team was able to get a much-needed victory. There will be plenty of time during the bye week to discuss all the problems.

    Steven Jackson said it himself, "there are no ugly wins in the NFL"

    Simply put, a win is a win. Let's enjoy it. It's a much deserved win and I absolutely love the fact that we have a bye. They get some time off with positive feelings.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    I know I feel a little better today for this win. We are playing more like a team, and our extremely young players are making fewer errors. Oh yeah, SJ owned. GoRams!

    I was happy for the win, distracted since I was entertaining, and probably missed some things in the game. At this point, I can only focus on the positive and a win is great!!!!

    Thank you Rams!!!!

    Re: Gotta love the "yeah, but..." crowd

    The yeah but crowd are those type of people that want it all now, and can't acknowledge anything positive while rebuilding. If we aren't immediately back to being the "Greatest Show On Turf" they are just going to continue to pout. A lot of the posts I have seen lately made me convinced that most of those people have not been watching the games and just listening to the commentators and reading game recaps. I have been watching every game this year and each game I am seeing improvement, and seeing a team fight. Not like last year when the team seemed to just be going through the motions.

    Little playing with strep throat, and getting an interception run back for a touch down.

    Jackson playing like he was a battering ram blasting into defenders and carrying people along for the ride.

    Even Incognito seems to have managed to calm his ***** down and stop making so many false starts and personal fouls. (Granted he did not play this weekend, but he has played better since Spags benched him for part of a game)

    And as much as some people here like to bash Bulger, isn't it amazing how much better we do when receivers CATCH the ball when it hits them in the HANDS, rather than dropping it? There were still a few dropped balls yesterday, but in general the concentration seemed better.

    A win is a win is a win. There is no such thing as an ugly win. Only a win. And you can lose without being beaten. Being beaten means giving up. Losing is when you keep fighting until the game is over and the other team has a higher score.

    So let's enjoy the win and enjoy watching our team fight!

    I love the bashers, they know everything about football and coaching. Without them, how would our front office know which moves are the best for the team.

    (For those who cannot tell, that was sarcasm.)

    What a relief... Now we don't have to hear that "worst team in history talk" and start concentrating on winning more games..

    Great game, I was on the edge of my seat the whole fourth quarter. I know a couple of Lions fans and they didn't want anything to do with the game. I wish I would have called them out on their absence of heart.

    I told you guys already. It's a win, but it doesn't count because Linehan is their OC!
