Thread: Uh Oh!

    Uh Oh!

    The Rams schedule has to be considered tougher then the Seahawks if not by opponent then surely by location. Presuming the Rams finish off the Cardinals and ***** the Rams could actually go undefeated in their division and not win it. I wonder if this has ever happened before.

    Rams Remaining Schedule
    @Buffalo
    @Green Bay
    San Francisco
    @Carolina
    @Arizona
    Philadelphia
    N.Y. Jets

    Seahawks Remaining Schedule
    Miami
    Buffalo
    Dallas
    @Minnesota
    @N.Y. Jets
    Arizona
    Atlanta

    We have to worry about playing to our potential. If we play well, we will win the division. If we play like we played against miami, new orleans and new england, we are not going to have to worry about what seattle or anyone else does.

    Consistency is the key for this team. That and staying healthy of course.

    Rams Remaining Schedule
    @Buffalo -- WIN
    @Green Bay -- WIN
    San Francisco -- WIN
    @Carolina -- WIN
    @Arizona -- WIN
    Philadelphia -- LOSS
    N.Y. Jets -- WIN

    @Minnesota -- LOSS

    Re: Uh Oh!

    I think the Hawks finish 4-3 (losses @Minn, @Jets, Atl). Which means we HAVE to finish at least 4-3. If we show up each week with the same team that played this past week, we should be able to do just that.

    Rams Remaining Schedule
    @Buffalo -- LOSS
    @Green Bay -- LOSS
    San Francisco -- WIN
    @Carolina -- WIN
    @Arizona -- WIN
    Philadelphia -- LOSS
    N.Y. Jets -- WIN

    This is worst case scenario, but it still gets us the division title at 9-7.

    The Rams need to win 5 of their last 7. If the Seahawks can do better than that, more power to them. But I think 10-6 will win the division.

    Re: Uh Oh!

    I dont see the Seahawks beating Atlanta. That is for sure. We got philly and the Jets at our house I think we will get the upset. The house is scary for other teams.

    P.S. Arizona wil give us a run they are not the beat on Cards anymore.

    Re: Uh Oh!

    If we lose to Green Bay and Philadelphia it could really bring down the morale of this team going into the playoffs. These will be the teams we will most likely be meeting so our boys must beat these guys. The Rams need to show they could compete with the NFC's elite teams. They must show that they should not be written off as an NFC elite. Once again all this starts with the defence. If they continue to play like they did last week they will be a team to beat.

    In the category of quite obscure and totally meaningless, here's a stat for this situation:
    Only once in the past 4 seasons has the eventual NFC champion beaten a team in the regular season, to then turn around and beat the same team in the playoffs --- 2001 Rams (week 1 win over Philly, then NFC championship win over Philly).

    So if we expect to see GB or the Eagles in the postseason, maybe we shouldn't win......naaaah.

    According to the Sagarin ratings both the Rams and Seahawks have been living high off the hog of an easy schedule...the 'Hawks have an advantage because the Rams have to go into Buffalo and GB...The hardes games for the 'Hawks will be the roadies...they could go 5-2...4-3 or 5-2 in not unreasonable for the Rams...

    This is worst case scenario, but it still gets us the division title at 9-7.
    In this thread, Nick & I both had Buffalo winning and Seattle winning, and there are probably several others who saw the same thing coming. What's my point? Even with this weekend, we are still in a position to win the division. The season's not done yet.

    P.S. We shouldn't be too shocked if we lose to GB next week either. We'll still go 9-7 (as will the Hawks) and the tiebreaker will give us the division.
