    *SPOILER ALERT* (If you want to stay in suspense, don't open this until 11/14/12)

    I used the new Google-DeLorean Flux Capacitor feature to see what would be happening on these boards a year from today.

    Here's what I found:

    Man, its hard to believe how far we've come in a year. Just a short twelve months ago, the Rams fan world felt nothing but despair. Now, its party time for the Clan!

    I think it comes down to a perfect positive storm in contast to 2011's negative storm. Coach Fisher has hit all the right notes in motivating this team, McDaniels' offense has hit its stride, and Sam Bradford is starting to get Pro Bowl whispers.

    I, for one, feel like I can gloat a bit. I told all of you last April when we selected Justin Blackmon that he'd be a HUGE difference maker. The combination of Blackmon/Lloyd may not be Bruce/Holt, but it certainly is the best we've seen since the GSOT days.

    For those who love defense, its great to see Chris Long and Robert Quinn on pace for 10+ sacks, and the addition of two starting OLBs is just what the doctor ordered.

    I don't want to get ahead of myself with talk of playing in February, but right now, I'd bet the farm on seeing the Rams back in the postseason.

    The glory days are back! Gotta love it!

    Other than winning Power Ball last August, this is the best thing that's happened to me all year!

    I read something very similar to that last year.

    We always can hope though ... What makes being a fan worth it.

    What a difference a year off makes. I mean Fisher could only motivate his own team to play better than .500 ball 6 of his 16 years as a head coach and yet he gets us into the playoffs his first year here. Amazing.

    Really? Jeff Fisher? Looks like the defense is finally coming around once again. I love what Spags can do with this defense at times, and at others its just horrible. But, I guess we will see at the end of the season.

    I'd love for everything else to be true though.

    I'm going to save this, and in a year, we'll see if your time traveling is correct, of if you just traveled into an alternate universe where the football gods did not curse us for eternity.

    I think we can do all of that without making a coaching change....

    And another way to say it is that he fell below .500 in only 5 of his 16 years.

    So you're all doubting that I'm going to win Power Ball in August?

    I stopped reading at the point "Coach Fisher has hit all the right notes ", sorry.

    While I will always bleed blue and gold, and never give up on my RAMS, I will not be a happy RAMs fan with Jeff Fischer as our coach.

    You know, we've all been assuming that future-Av is referring to Jeff Fisher. Maybe I'm actually referring to Isla Fisher (best known for her role in "Wedding Crashers" and her marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen):

    I think she would be a great coach.
