    Saints Vs Rams battles of the early 2000's

    I remember in the late 90's the Rams and Saints were perpetually bottom feeders in the NFC West and then you guys had the "Greatest Show On Turf" assault in 99' and whipped everybody up. But I liked those Rams vs Saints battles of 2000 and 2001 before the realignment. I remember when we played you guys when Aaron Brooks made his first start in the regular season and we eeked out a 31-24 win. Then I remember being home on leave from the military when we played you guys again the last week of the season (a game I went to) and you guys beat us to get in the playoffs.

    Marshall ran rough shod over our defense that week and for like 200 plus yards and the Rams beat us 26-21. The following week we played you in the playoffs were kicking the snot out of yall and then you guys came all the way back and nearly robbed us of our moment but we wound up winning because Hakim fumbled the punt return. Those Saints vs Rams battle was fun those years win or lose and it was devoloping into a nice little rivalry before the realignment.

    I remember the next time we played you guys in the 01-02 season you were beating us 24-6 at half time and we came all the way back and won. You guys were like 6-0 coming into that game and woun up making the SB that year before losing to the Pats. The next time you guys beat us in the Superdome on Monday night and our fans were throwing beer bottles at the refs. The realignment kind of killed that budding rivalry. The Saints and Rams always had a decent rivalry in the old NFC west but were never main rivals and were never really good at the same time except for those years.

    Hell yeah man, we've always had some great games against the Saints. Always fun to watch, regardless of how great or bad either team was. Let's hope for an injury-free game this Sunday!


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams
