    Thomas Revises Prediction

    This just in. Jim Thomas, Ram beat writer for the Post Dispatch, has revised his prediction about how many games the Rams will win this season. "I see them winning 5 games," he said. When asked if he could see the Rams winning 7, he replied "Lets see them win 6 first. Then we can talk."

    Re: Thomas Revises Prediction

    This guy makes me laugh..the whole idea of a prediction is that prefix PRE. As in, you can't change it to "one more than they have right now" every time the Rams win. Sorry Thomas, thats not how this works. Just admit you were wrong and move on.

    Re: Thomas Revises Prediction

    Did you see what he said on the "watercooler" article today? "But I still want to see the Rams win another game on the road -- say in Arizona this Sunday -- before I'm convinced they have a real chance to win the NFC West." Apparently he still doesn't think they have a "real chance" of winning the west. I'd say being in 1st place in the division after Week 12 qualifies as having a "real chance". Unless you're the biggest sourpuss writer on the planet.

    It is a classic example of beatwriter syndrome. They are constantly trying to appear to be more reasonable than their readers. I the readers are too high, they reign them in. If they're too low, they pump things up.

    Nowhere in there is an honest, go-out-on-a-limb, opinion.

    Its amazing how ANYONE's mouth can switch from what they said when what they said does not happen.
