    Since Rams Are Still In Contention

    Do you prefer they go into the playoffs, probable, 8-8 and lose big in the first round or continue the losing streak and get a better draft pick position?

    I'm in a real hurry for this team to start playing up to its potential and wipe away that sorry 0-6 record. I'll take the playoffs over a high 1st rounder any day. It'll give the players that return something to chew on during the offseason instead of waiting for our draft picks to mature a few years down the line.

    Win, win and win some more. An 8-8 finish would be a remarkable turnaround, and would give the Rams much momentum going into the playoffs, if they made it, which is doubtful. The only team to make it in on an 8-8 record in NFL History does it twice?

    You have to hope for a W every week. Draft position is secondary, even if it means we don't have a shot at a Kenny Phillips, Calias Campbell or Jake Long.

    Agreed. Win, vindicate, heal (not only physically), achieve. :r

    I know if my team was in your teams position right now. And it has been in the past...a lot. I would want them to win. It is always more fun when the team is winning, even if they only win 2 games. And the fans have to be eternal optimists.

    To be fair, not all evil robots are killers.

    Re: Since Rams Are Still In Contention

    We have to try to win. If the team played well enough to win 8 out of the last 10 games, I don't think you could assume that they'd go out in the first round of the playoffs. This is all hypothetical of course, but we'd have huge momentum on our side at that point.

    Realistically, I think it's a moot point. We have the 29th ranked team in offensive yards/game, and we're DEAD LAST in points/game. If you want to be positive, we are tied for number 1 in most interceptions thrown, we're tied for 5th in most fumbles lost, and we have allowed the 7th most quarterback sacks. Sorry, guys, just trying to put this in perspective.

    Win now.
    Losses are erased at the end of a season, a culture of losing can dog a team for a decade or more. Do you really want to go back to that?

    Win. If we go 8-8 or 9-7 or whatever, and lose in the first round, we'll still have a mid round draft pick.

    Re: Since Rams Are Still In Contention

    I really really want the Rams to be able to pick up Chris Long(Howie's kid(Got a safety last night(Go UVA!))) in April, however I will always take a win any day. I'll personally be excited and extremely happy if we can get up to a 6-10 season. If we can somehow make the playoffs, I don't know what I'll do.

    Re: Since Rams Are Still In Contention

    shows how bad the division is when you can be 0-6 and still in the running to win the devision. If we go 8-8 we definitely miss out on Jake Long, Campbell, Dorsey, and possibly Kenny Phillips (one of my personal favorites, and best player in shallow safety draft. Ed Reedish type of player who gives us an impact safety we haven't had in a while. We all saw what Ed Reed did to us ). The bright side is we can still get equal or better value in Chris Long, Sam Baker, Barry Richardson, DeSean Jackson. Chris Long or Sam Baker and the playoffs doesn't look that bad to me.
