    The playoff drive has begun

    Spirited performance and great win. Four consecutive winnable games ahead of us. We are not dead yet. The game that kills me is the redskins loss. Given the schedule, we are really only one game behind where i thought we would be, with a legit shot at 8-8. The redskins loss kills any margain for error and of course one game does not solve all of our problems, especially since we are on the road the next two weeks, but its sure a start.

    I hope people will get off Jackson's case. Aside from his performance, which shows you what he can do with a little bit of blocking, how about his passion and leadership. I thought he was going to punch saffold in the face in the 4th quarter.

    Chris Long has his best game as a ram. Three sacks! Quinn showed why he was a #1 pick with a sack and blocked punt. He HAS to be part of the rotation now. All of a sudden, we get some plays by receivers. Salas really has a place on the team and Lloyd had a huge catch (even though he also had a HUGE drop on a key 4th quarter third down).

    The defense looked like spags performed an excorcism. No more sitting back and getting picked apart, aggressive blitzing. Great plays by Lauranaitis, stewart and i thought the corners played well. We held their runs in check, tackled very well for a change and held brees as well as anyone could hope to do.

    The offensive line played well today and feeley was functional, despite a couple of big misses and plays where he held the ball too long.

    Overall, the Rams showed that they can play. The key is to carry that intensity over to next week against the big dead on the road in a very winnable game, especially with sammy back in the lineup.

    Re: The playoff drive has begun

    This is exactly where I thought we'd be after seven games. It's just I thought the W would come v Washington, but 1-6 is 1-6. The biggest problem is that I thought - at best - the ***** would have three wins on the board. Being so far back already is the killer.

    If we'd pulled just one more win out in that opening stretch then I think we'd still have a legitimate shot at pushing for the playoffs in these last nine games. As it is, I think we're just coming from too far back.

    But the thought of Alexander, Lloyd, Clayton and Bradford all out on the field, with the Steven Jackson we saw this afternoon...that's pretty exciting. We need to stay disciplined (still too many daft false starts today) and hope the secondary holds up, but more football like that and we'll be back on the right trajectory.

    Next week's game is huge tho - we need to build on this, not fall back again.

    It goes without saying every game from this point forward is critical. A loss next week would undo the tremendous good done today. But for right now, let's just enjoy this win and hope it serves as a springboard for good, competitive, fundamental football for the remainder of the season.

    No need to celebrate yet, the Cards almost scared the Ravens on the road. I'm staying cautiously optimistic.

    As much as I want the rams to get to the playoffs for the first time in years. Lets try to be reasonable here. Its been one game, a very good game at that but we still have 9 more to go. I tend not to be too optimistic.

    Playoffs are a shade premature, but this was a great win. They fought with heart and determination, the defense played with that spark that turned heads last year. I especially liked those two straight wide open plays with Brandon Lloyd that would have been 6 with Bradford. He really brings alot to the team.

    We're going to need serious help with the whiners running away with it. I'm watching the Browns come back right now and looking for some of that help to surface.

    We can only control what we can control (ie our own performance). My point with the title of the thread is that if we play the way we played today for the rest of the way (which i admit in my original post is far from a given), we are perfectly capable of winning every one of our games, with the possible exception of pittsburgh on the road.

    Don't think so but I wouldn't mind a St. Louis Cardinal-style run by the Rams..
