    Rams should be 4-0 -- Failure if not 4-4 at Bye

    I am very happy we finally won against the Sea-Pigeons, but I can't help but think we could be 4-0 or at least 3-1 because of bad special team blunders and a big guy not falling down.


    I don't think we are a top team on offense or defense (yet) but we could win more games before the bye.


    Anything less than 4-4 at the bye is a failure.

    Well, the truth of the matter is that the 2nd half of our schedule is very tough and we needed to get all the wins we can get before the bye.

    We blew our first 2 games because of dumb play on special teams and a fumble by a DT.


    If we miss out on winning the NFC West Playoff bid because of one of those to games it will be hard to swallow.

    Great game yesterday exposing Pete's horrible college style of gimmicks not gonna cut it against a real defense.

    With Alex Smith and that Offensive Co-coordinator in SF we have a chance to make noise,

    So LETS GO RAMS !!! Let Bradford loose against the Lions and the defense will make plays....

    The Lions are slightly above average offensively ...

    Outside of the front four, they are mediocre on defense, in terms of both giving up yardage and points allowed. Hill has been atrious in terms of his INT's ....

    Rams should win this game ....

    Re: Rams should be 4-0 -- Failure if not 4-4 at Bye

    There are 3 levels of football teams in my opinion.

    The Bottom Dwellers, the Any Given Sundays and the Elites.

    We are just now entering the Any Given Sunday group. Which means we are competitive and could win almost any game we play but we could also lose any game we play.

    For instance... we beat the Seahawks, the Seahawks beat San Diego so of course we will beat the Chargers... not so fast. The Chargers beat the Cardinals and the Cardinals beat us so we should lose to San Diego.

    In the Any Given Sunday group you can see a team like Kansas City start 3 and 0 and a team like Dallas at 1 and 2. Both records, in my opinion, are not reflective of the quality of their teams but that is the way it goes sometimes. Yes we could be 4 and 0 but we could also be 0 and 4. Our team may end up slightly under 500 or slightly above 500... who knows.

    The ultimate goal is to get into the elite category which is 10 wins in a season is considered a terrible year. We are still at least 2 to 3 years away from that caliber of play.

    I'm actually not sure what my point is other then... if we are 5 and 3 at the bye I wouldn't be shocked but I also wouldn't be shocked if we were 3 and 5. As long as we stay competitive in all of the games I will hold off on the Failure label for awhile.

    Oh good, richtree is back to being his negative self. Maybe we can get Peoria in here to tell us how horrible the Rams are at everything they do.

    Re: Rams should be 4-0 -- Failure if not 4-4 at Bye

    So the 1-15 team last year is a complete failure if they aren't 4-4 at the bye? I consider this team as "exceeding expectations" already, but you went and raised the bar. It would be nice, but by no means will we be a failure if we aren't 4-4 by the bye. In fact is we ARE 4-4 I think we will have far exceeded expectations, personally.

    Yes, just where has P-EEYORIA been recently. You know in an odd yet somewhat sick and demented way I've been kinda missing him.

    Oh well maybe now Richtree can make up for his absence.

    Oh joy...

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Here is my 2 cents

    The Rams have to play almost perfect to win. The fact they're playing almost perfect and winning is a positive not a negative. But to expect perfection every game is not realistic.

    What should give us Rams fan hope is that the system is in place and when the Rams add talent to this team in the next couple of years the team can be one of the elite teams in the NFL.

    Go Rams

    Anything less than 4-4 at the bye is a failure.
    Couldn't disagree more. A team that has won 6 games in 3 years, starting a rookie QB, rookie LT, same-as-rookie RT, and youngsters all over the place..........they will do well to win 4 for the entire season, much less the half-season.

    3-5 at the break; a failure?

    Not even close.

    He still has some long term potential, but teams don't want to work with him.


    On the other hand, Vick is a stud.

    Funny how many people wanted Jason Campbell and Chad Pennington over Vick.

    I am glad we have Bradford for the future but Vick is a top QB now.

    The Rams blew 2 games for the rookie this year. Expectations change.

    If we had Avery right now, I think we should win the NFC West (since SF is 0-4).

    Bradford doesn't have a road win yet, so Detroit and TB will be tougher than expected but if we lose both I think that is a failure.

    SD and Carolina are coming to the Dome so we have to win one of those games.

    those first 2 games were disappointing and we have some winnable games coming up, but everything doesn't have to have such a negative ring to it after 2 wins in a row. the improvement we were looking for has been obvious, this team is on the right track.
