After a fantastic and convincing victory over the Packers I visited espn.com and sure enough the playoff section was overloaded with Mcnabb propaganda.Tom Jackson has predicted an Eagles/Steelers Superbowl!What a joke!I know the Eagles deserve respect and are a very good team,but the media still loves to downplay the Rams success.Well let them.In week 1 we beat the Eagles with an out of sync offense and an inexperienced defense.We have improved dramatically since then,and yes,the Eagles have improved also,but our defense has made huge strides all season long.Right now Mcnabb is red-hot,but is he the Michael Jordan of football?What do you all think of this match-up?
This is our last NFC opponent this season and every ClanRammers insights and opinions are important to this Rams fan.So what do you all expect to see against the Eagles?
:angryram: GO RAMS! STAY FOCUSED! WIN!:shield:ST.LOUIS RAMS:THE MOST FRUSTRATING TEAM IN THE NFL!!!
I think the game next week will be tough one and I know we are going to be bombaded with how Mcnabb can run here and throw there. Boy are the media going to talk about that overtime win where the Eagles defence nearly had us!! I'll be sick of it by the end of the week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUTTTTTTTTT
1) OK our offence was off sinc yesterday but Martz will have that solved by next week!! We have seen their defence and MAD Martz will find those holes and attack them
2) The Rams offence have seen those blitzes and the offensive line will be ready. Tucker we hope will be back but Jones did a good job last night as his replacement
3)Troy Vincent had a groin injury yesterday and is uncertain for next week and he's their best cover CB
4)OUR DEFENCE IT contained Mcnabb last time and his running lanes and with there confidence NOW, I see they will do it again, There recievers have improved from last time but Williams and Co will shut them down!!!!!!! We must watch for Chad Lewis he has become more involved during the last couple of weeks
5) We will be playing at home on our terms and the DOME was rocking yesterday!
I just don't care what MR. TOM OATES has to say, it is what happens on the field that counts and we will be laughing at the end. Lets face it, the league loves to knock the RAMS
:angryram: RAMS FOREVER!!!

As a Rams fan living in Philadelphia, I must say this will be an interesting week. I agree the national media is dissing the Rams, but I've grown numb to it and actually expect it. This type of coverage has provided the boys with the chip on their shoulder necessary to win it all.
Like I said, I live in Philadelphia and will be hearing all the drunken drivel from Eagles fans for an entire week. Not to my surprise when I woke up this morning and turned on the local radio sports station, only to hear the whining about how they should have beaten the Rams in week 1. I guess they forgot that week 1 was the first game for a new defense with 8 new starters and that they had 6 months to prepare and we had to play on that ice skating rink they call turf at the Vet. I won't even mention that it was 17-3 and they Eagles got a lucky bounce off of Jeff Robinson's helmet for an interception as the Rams were preparing to score again. I won't mention the punt return for a touchdown that was called back. I won't mention alot of things, but this weekend will put the Eagles where they belong, below the Rams...
Yes, the Donovan McNabb comparisions are in full flight. He is, as you all know, the second coming of Joe Montana with his pinpoint passing. Oh well, let the media say what they want, this game will be won by the best team, the Rams.
I will keep you posted on the slop that is inevitably going to said this week in Philly. I feel an obligation to my fellow Ram fans to give an accurate depiction of what exactly is being said in Philadelphia.

Thanks for the Philly insight DUKE. I am originally from that area (about 90 miles north, Phillipsburg, NJ) and know all to well how the media and fans handle their Eagles. No one will mention the Rams defense of week 18, only the new defense of week 1. They can focus all they want on the fact that they almost won 18 weeks ago but the fact is, they lost then to a brand new defense with a brand new coach with brand new players at home. Kurt and Marshall hardly played in the preseason and were both pretty rusty for opening day. Let's see how they react to the pressure of playing on the road in the NFC Championship game against a defense that they really know nothing about. I hope they do gameplan using the week 1 tape. All the better for us.

Hey RAMSWIN, you Stateliner you. I grew up in Easton across the river.
You're right about the fan base up there, but since I moved down closer to Philly, I've got to say they are worse than you can imagine. You can't even call the sports radio station and have an intelligent conversation becuase they will just cut you off and call you a moron. I don't even try.

Small world. No, I have to say that I hate everything about that town and the northeast in general. I claim it only because I have to claim somewhere. I haven't been to a P'Burg football game in 15 years and don't plan on going to one anytime soon. The only reason I go there at all is because I still have a sister there (poor girl). It's amazing to me how depressing the whole P'Burg, Easton area is. It's like post war depression up there. My wife has family in Macungie, Pa. (outside of Allentown) so we go up a couple of time a year. Used to live in Easton a few years back though on 5th Street, right off of Northampton by the State Theater.
To H with respect, I want the trophy
Its time to finally take into consideration what all the pundits and prognasticators don't realize: what they say means SQWAT!!!!! Merrill Hoge? Glad you quit playing before you became a mall walker. Terry Bradshaw? You won four Super Bowls, but I doubt an Emmy is coming your way anytime soon. Randy Cross? I don't think you have watched the Rams all year after the prediction of high scoring you made last week.
All I care about is putting another Super Bowl trophy in Rams Park. Period. Let the Eagles, Steelers, and Pats have all the press.
