Warner knew what he was talking about..
when he said the only team that could beat the Rams is the Rams. I have never seen a team with the uncanny ability to lose to themselves like the Rams.
They constantly make bone-head mistakes and penalties at the worst possible time. Think about the game against Philly and the int at the goalline. All day long today they have made stupid mistakes. Usually when they have a chance to score.
They seem to let teams hang around to make it interesting. They did it in the Super Bowl, they did it last game, and they are at it again today.
I don't think the Rams will win the Super Bowl this year. They will get beat in the playoffs, and they will stay true to form. They will beat themselves. For a team with such discipline on route-running, they are sorely lacking in about every other area of discipline. Just call it like I smell it. :)
Hold on there RAMS Fans...
And Porkchop, how abouy showing a little patience.;)
My take on this is:
The *soon to be rich* refs back on the field wanted to make a statement. (The one Holt penalty was obvious, another very questionable.
Our downfield blocking, usually excellent....Well, they got a little over zealious.
New 'D' players, new system & new coaches....'nuff said.
I have the utmost faith this Lovie Smith form of cover 2 'D' will jell in the weeks to come.
I know your feelings. Even during our SB run, with big leads, we manage to leave the door open for comebacks. ie: The '99 game vs the Vikes turned an easy win into a nailbiter.
