Rams Provide Blue Print for Losing teams.
I can't stand to watch games in which teams already way out of the playoff scene play and coach scared. When you have nothing to lose, you might as well adopt that mental approach. Coach to win, show some guts and let it all hang out.So I love the way Steve Spagnuolo attacked the Saints on defense and kept on firing and kept going for it on fourth down and ended up with the most shocking result of this season. It's not just that the Rams beat the Saints -- though that was shocking in and of itself -- it was how they did it.
The play that drove a stake through the Saints, though, was when Jackson got a carry on fourth-and-2 with St. Louis leading 17-0 and 7 minutes to play in the third quarter. He rumbled left, reached the sidelines, and 32 yards later the Rams had first-and-goal from the 3. Jackson scored from there, and that was the ballgame.New Orleans' once-great offensive line was in disarray with guys barking at coaches on the sidelines. Chris Long had three sacks and there was no answer for him. New Orleans was pummeled in every facet of play and Steven Jackson ran wild on the Saints.
No doubt every player loved the call when it came in. As Herm Edwards once famously said, "You play to win the game." You don't play not to lose. Good for Spags and the Rams. Obviously, this season is not going as planned, but that was a huge win. The victory cushions Spagnuolo from the hot seat some and if the Rams can be competitive against their division foes -- as I expect them to be -- and Sam Bradford finishes the season strong, things might not be nearly as bleak as they seemed, oh, what, 48 hours ago?

Wow i never thought i say this But calling a run on 4th and 2. Seems very uncharacteristic of Spagnolo. Never thought id say this but WOW. What a great decision. Going out and getting, rather than settling. I love this but where was this the whole season? We will see more of this I believe!!!
I think Spags Finally believes in his team, he called them out, got them ready. I got high hopes for these rams! Prediction. Rams 30 cardinals 10. Go Rams!
I bleed Blue and Yellow, Rams 4 life.
