    Start to Season Familiar - Can The Rams Turn it Around Again?

    Three games.

    One closer than it should have been win against a team the Rams should beat.

    One loss in which the team looked really bad.

    One heartbreaking loss in a game the team should have won.

    Sound familiar? I could be talking about the start of 2003 or 2004, couldn't I? Category 1 could be the home game against San Fran last year, or the game against Arizona. Category 2 could be the Falcon game or the Giant game. Category 3 could be the Saints debacle or the one against the Seahawks last year.

    My optimistic side tells me that, if the Rams could turn it around last year, they could do it again this year.

    But I must admit I have my doubts.

    Last year, the Rams were able to overcome the mistakes that their high risk/high reward offense is likely to have with an opportunistic defense that lead the league in turnovers. This year, the Rams have gone over 12 quarters without forcing a turnover.

    Last year, the Rams had a more favorable schedule. This year, the second half of the season will be a beast.

    But I'm not giving up hope.

    I still think this team has enough talent to come together and make a playoff run. Well... at least I hope it does.

    This team is about to go on a fall that will harken us back to the 90s. It was a nice little 5 year run. Ol Rainy has taken what should have been a dynasty of sorts and run it right into the ground. The hiring of the leagues WORST D coordinator simply because he is a 'good friend' is about the last straw. Playoff run....LMMFAO!!!

    I just think THIS year is going to be so frustrating, the D is going to have to stop someone, or at least turn up, for us to have an impact this year..

    What scares me is that when the D hits the field, the oppent just matches at will,(no stuffing the middle, lack of pass rush) to me that comes from the coaching, lack of talent, playing with kids, no leaders on the field, in 2000 we had the O to score at will it seemed, this year, ok we have moved the ball WELL but it always seems sometimes to end up with stupid mistakes being made, penties here, there.... the team lacks disapline!!!!

    I'm an optimist too but these last three games were ment to be soft oppents, WHAT HAPPENS when the hawks, philly, Pats come to town, its going to get bloody..........

    I love my Rams and it hurts to see emm like this!!!!
