    Re: The Rams will only go as far as ______ takes them.

    I think this has to go all the way to the top. Martz. I don't dislike him as much as some, but I don't like him as well as others. But I think this is his "prove it" year. If he leads this team (with its' problems and weaknesses) to the playoffs, then I will give him all due respect. But, if he takes this team (with all of it's strengths) and doesn't make the playoffs, I think some of you will finally have to realize that he was a great OC, but not quite ready for the HC job...

    I just hope the D is a good as TX thinks it will be. All ulcers aside.

    ...That's the Run Defense...

    It's team chemistry, which is to say, no one component is going to dictate this season. I think we have weaknesses that can be overcome, but I don't think we have strengths that can be completely relied on either. If we win this year, it will be a true team effort. From Martz to Smoker, from Landetta to Jackson, it is going to take everyone's "A" game.

    Luck? Just kidding. I'm gonna go with the run defense. I have no question that the offense will be able to move the ball. I just hope the run D can prevent other teams from racking up as many points. We'll be fine.

    Good response Terry, I agree with everything you said. Without a doubt, Martz fills in the blank.

    I have to say he did a pretty good job of keeping it together through all the injuries last year. Just something to ponder.

    IMHO its all about our defense especially the run defense. We can't win without a good defense; 2000 proved that. Our run defense has to be tough. If its not, Arch and Williams will have to move up to help in run support and then are corners will be taken advantage of. Not that we have terrible corners, but if a QB knows that he doesn't have to worry about Arch or Williams over the top; that QB is going to smile.
