    The Rams Will Win Division w/9-7 Record (Here's how...)

    This is how I see the rest of the regular season playing out...

    Week 13:

    Rams defeat San Francisco
    Seahawks defeat Dallas

    The Rams should be able to handle the Whiners on their home field, while Seattle will be psyched for their first home Monday Night Football game in a while.

    Rams 6-6
    Seattle 7-5

    Week 14:

    Rams defeat Carolina
    Minnesota defeats Seahawks

    While Carolina is playing better lately and will be tough at home, the revenge factor from last year's playoffs should provide motivation. Seattle will get slapped by the Vikings in Minnesota.

    Rams 7-6
    Seattle 7-6

    Week 15:

    Rams defeat Arizona
    Jets defeat Seahawks

    Cardinals are not the "gimme" they once were, but the Rams should be able to handle them. Jets will be fighting for playoff position and will have Pennington back.

    Rams 8-6
    Seattle 7-7

    Week 16:

    Eagles defeat Rams
    Seahawks defeat Arizona

    There is some question here regarding the Eagles motivation, as they might clinch home field advantage before this game, but the Rams will have trouble with McNabb and company. Hawks will beat the Cards at home.

    Rams 8-7
    Seattle 8-7

    Week 17:

    Rams defeat Jets
    Seahawks defeat Falcons

    Both the Rams and the Seahawks will have the motivation factor in their favor, as the Jets and the Falcons will probably have their playoff positions clinched by this point.

    Rams 9-7
    Seattle 9-7

    This would mean the Rams would be the No. 4 seed in the NFC (despite the fact that they might have a worse record than the top Wild Card team), and would host the first round of the playoffs - possibly against Seattle!

    I agree except for the Carolina game. If the momentum doesn't carry us through a win, we have already seen the "motivational problems" this team has had. I am not saying we will lose, just that it concerns me.

    Other than that game, looks good.

    Just when you think you know what the Rams are gonna do. They do 0-something totally different. Watch, we'll end up 10-6.

    As much as it hurt me to say this, I don't think the Rams are going to the playoffs this year. Of the remaining games left I can see them winning possibly two games... San Fran and Arizona and to me the Arizona game is 50/50 at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if Navarre look like a pro bowl QB against the Rams D.

    Sorry AV 8-8 will be a stretch

    SF = W (6-6)
    CAR = L (6-7) The Panthers will run over the Lamb D-lineman.
    AZ = W (I can hope anyway(7-7))
    PHILLY = L (7-8)
    NYJ = ??? If the Jets need the game the Lambs lose (7-9)

    The Squawks must go 8-8 to win Div. (they will win at least 3 games) (9-7)

    I like the glass is half full rationale, but I can no longer ride that wave this season. The M&M boyz - Martz and Mamie have sealed our fate.

    Could somebody send me a pair of those glasses so I can see whatever the hell your seeing! 8-8 will be at best and 7-9 is looking better. Loss to Caro, loss to eagles, loss to Jets! 7-9. So don't get your hopes up! I'm sure I'm wrong in your facade but whatever man! :upset:

    9-7 sounds realistic, but the team is so schizophrenic this year. I'm not planning on getting my hopes up anytime soon. I'll get really excited when we have a playoff berth.

    I said it before the season started, the Rams are going 7-9 or 8-8. I still believe that. :disappoin

    I predicted a 12-4 season.... :disappoin
    While I want the guys to make 9-7, then go on to the playoffs, we need to ask one question:

    Do the Rams really deserve to go to the playoffs this year?

    As much as I want to see the Rams in there, I don't think the team has thier act together enough to make a good showing this year....

    We always have next year....and the best thing.....even with this years' troubles, we are still a dangerous team!

    Re: The Rams Will Win Division w/9-7 Record (Here's how...)

    Before the season I called 10-6, and I honestly think I'm going to miss it by one. The next 3 games are wins, Carolina will be the toughest of the 3, but it's a win still the same. They've been playing over their heads the past 3 weeks, it won't last. Granted, we will lose to the Eagles, and we may even lose to the Jets, but I think that's a winnable game as well. At worst that's 8-8, which will be the Hawks record, at best. That makes us the NFC West champion. To get to the playoffs at 8-8 or even 9-7 is kind of sad, but it's the playoffs still the same.

    Of course, the last time the Rams went 9-7 and won their division, they went to the Super Bowl.


    (That's the only comparison I'll make between the 2004 team and the 1979 team. The latter team - now they had heart.)

    Re: The Rams Will Win Division w/9-7 Record (Here's how...)

    I think I said the Rams would be 9-7 (Maybe 8-8)....I cannot recall excactly.

    In the NFL you get what you earn - not what you deserve. If 8-8 wins the West. So be it. Any year in the playoffs is better than a year not in the playoffs. Heck, its one more game to watch.

    What will be worse is if the Rams make it in at 8-8 and a couple AFC teams don't at 10-6 or better (now they would deserve to make the playoffs....but they did not earn a birth....). Ouch!!

    Besides, let's face it, if the Rams do make the playoffs, they will have no pressure on them. I do not think any team would say they want to play the Rams in the first round. Anything could happen...however unlikely.

    What's really unlikely is the Eagles losing to the Rams. The Eagles owe us a few and they will take their shots at us.

    I still say 8-8 would be a good year at this point....7-9 if they slip to AZ.

    PLAYOFFS!!!!!... PLAYOFFS!!!! (in my best Jim Mora ranting voice...)
