Good thing I don't own the Rams
As I have said since the 'aints debacle, this is inexcusable, unacceptable and unforgivable. I don't know which is worse, the turnovers, or Martz's cavalier attitude that "we are going to score, so I can live with them." Well, guess who else is copping that attitude? Uh huh...the players - how many of them showed ANY emotion about coughing up the ball? NONE! Was anything more disturbing than those completely disinterested gazes on the sidelines, including on the faces of Warner and Martz. There was NO emotion at all! And anyone who has played the game knows how much of the game and successes are based on emotion.
If I owned the Rams, you can bet Martz would be in my office today answering questions about what he plans to do to FIX THE @#$%ing problem, and "I'm not worried about them" is NOT an acceptable answer!
Someone MUST be held accountable...NOW! Our fate was just written in concrete - albeit still wet with 6 games to go, but mark my words, we will be eliminated in the playoffs by a turnover (or turnovers).
That sounds alarmist, but turnovers are now a "habit." Nothing good will come from habitual turnovers.
Everybody take a deep breath now...
This is quoted from CNNSI today regarding, among other things, Warner's admission of fault and poor play. He's not too concerned about the QB rating numbers and stuff like that.
[Quote] "I watch the tape, though. I didn't make enough plays, bottom line."
"I think I could have called a much better game for him, to be honest with you," Martz said. "I could have given him better opportunities in the passing game. I was pleased when I looked at the tape - I didn't realize he played as well as he did."
Warner said he felt like he was throwing the ball where he wanted to for the most part and making the right decisions. But he sensed an overall lack of focus* for the team.
"It was just one of those games where we just weren't all clicking," he said. "The timing wasn't all there and I didn't put the ball where I wanted to every single time."
Warner credited the Buccaneer's defense for much of his problems.
"When you're playing a good defense, you'd better be on," Warner said. "You have to be on top of your game and we obviously weren't, and it showed." [end quote (asterisk, color and underline mine)]
It certainly did...
* So we had a bad game, we were way off, injured, distracted, what-have-you. This loss is not taken lightly.
The late Ram Coach George Allen would say about serious pro football, "everytime you lose, you die a little."
Rams ARE passionate! We are Rams. Rams are tough and rugged; most of all, they are real -- they don't have a bad attitude, never, even when calm and "blasť."
:angryram: LET'S GO RAMS!!!
Now where's that number...
Ok, I'll have to call Paul T. and associates at NFL to have them lift the ban on Rams TD party celebration. Believe me, I miss that too! [AND make each lossing team pay fine$ for all celebration penalties...] It would be great to see more Rams jumping and jittering for joy! And for Ws.
You're right TX, we need to get some good noise going under those helmets!
Let the Royal BOB'N WEAVE'N begin! GO RAMS!!!
