    Ram's success.

    I was just watching the Score (Canadian sports network) and mentioned that in the uncertainties in NFC, Rams might be the team to beat. AND they actually backed it up with a good point. We have beaten the Redskins, who have beaten the Eagles and Cowboys and Seattle, who has beaten the Chargers.

    I am not sure I agree with them 100% but it sure feels like the turnaround that we had from 1999 to 2000 and the media is recognizing it the exact same way. Only difference is in 2000 we did it with fire power on Offense and a decent defense and this year we are doing it with great Defense and an offence that can finally sustain drives.

    at the end of the day it is how well we match up with our opponent, not how they match up with each other. what do canadians know... right now we have to get better blocking to get SJax some better run opportunities. Our defense is doing well but we need to step it up in scoring and getting Bradford his first 300 yard passing game.

    I like the attention we are getting, but still a little premature.

    Dont like the comment about the canadian knowledge of the game of football and I do think that the line has been gelling very well since they all started playing together week 1. I also love the fact that Spags has been rotating players into the line to keep them fresh and ready to go in case of injuries.

    Team to beat in the entire NFC? Don't think so. We've played 3 bad teams and 1 mediocre team and came out of that 2-2. We're playing a lot better than in recent years past, but we've got a long way to go before becoming an elite team.

    Maybe my explanation about what the tv station said wasnt clear. But they threw it out there at the end of the tv bit saying we are improving every week and have a very consistent defense. And that consistency is something none of the other nfc teams have shown.

    Dude, that was cold. Just because the dimensions of their football fields are out of proportion, doesn't mean they don't know football. Be kinder to our friends to the north.
