    Eagles....?

    Yes the Eagles. They have a D that can rise up and bite you, and you never know how hot McNabb can get.

    the eagles game is misleading, both teams played like crap.

    Tampa Bay isn't that great and may or may not make the playoffs, but they are now the one thorn in the rams side...

    The Niners and the Packers in the NFC pose the biggest threat, but only because the Saints might not make it.

    In the AFC, it's the Steelers. No on else in the AFC will stand a chance.

    T.B. definately scares me the most...their defense is the one that matches up the best against us. They absolutely dominate our offensive line...



    The Pack would be tough if they got home field advantage (which they won't :: wink :: ) If we had to go up there in the middle of the winter I think we would be in trouble.

    I agree with Atlas though, our toughest matchup (position by position) might just be with the Steelers.

    The good news is that I don't think there is a team in the league that can beat us if we protect the ball and don't let them stay in the game with turnovers.

    AGREE

    I agree with the Tampa thing...they are going to always give the Rams 120% just because of 1999

    I just don't want the Whiners in it. So it scares me that they might get lucky.

    I'm not sure Tampa will make it, so I didn't include them. You shouldn't either. Them making the playoffs is unlikely with some tough games ahead.

    Cool teams to fear the most come playoff time

    Teams to fear at playoff time:

    1) Tampa Bay - they match up well defensively with the Rams - Martz needs to consistently utilize extra protection from Conwell or one of the backs in order to provide Warner with time to complete passes against the Tampa "D".

    2) Saints - the Rams need to avoid mistakes against this team. Turnovers at either end of the field, as occured Monday night, keep the Saints alive.

    3) Steelers - Although the Steelers play a 3-4 'D' they also play man to man Defense. I believe the Rams can expose the Pittsburg Defense like no other team can (Isaac and Tory will return to 99 form against man to man coverage). The Ram 'D' has good speed and this will also assist them in reducing the effectiveness of Pittsburg's offense. Superbowl (Rams 31 - Steelers 16).

    Go Rams!

    P.S. Warner looks like his old self again - feeling alot more confident than I was after the loss to the Saints.

    I wouldn't underestimate the Steeler secondary. They're a lot faster then you think. If the Rams WRs beat the Steeler D, it will be skill Vs Skill. Speed won't play as much of a role as most Ram games.

    Good point about the Steelers "D". I think they are ranked No. 1 for a reason and I think their ranking this year, as well as past years, proves they are an exceptional "D" (I didn't intend to give the impression that I underestimate the skill of the Steelers "D").

    However, if Warner is given time he is extremely accurate and I think receiver speed is deadly when you isolate it on man coverage. It goes without saying that the Steelers corners are gifted and we all know the Rams receivers are as well. However, when man coverage exists a receiver has a significant opportunity to increase yards after the catch as opposed to making catches in a 7 man defensive zone. The key will be whether or not the Rams properly protect Warner (blindsided hits as he has experienced in other games often result in turnovers and can easily be the difference in any game).

    Other than the Chiefs and Vikes the Steelers having really faced a vertical passing attacking team and these teams aren't exactly of the Rams Calibre with 7 or is it 8 wins between them.

    I think it works to the Rams advantage that the Steelers haven't seen a team such as the Niners, Saints or Packers this year.

    Go Rams!!!!

    P.S. The Steelers haven't had the toughest schedule but the '99 Rams would likely say who cares (pretty easy schedule in '99).

    The key to the Steelers Defense isn't the corners. They're way above average, but not the greatest. The key is the defensive front line. They ARE great. Massive. They are among the best at causing pressure, which is what I think would cause the Rams the most trouble. Corners are only are good as the front line.

    The Rams would have to run Marshall a lot by controlling themselves and maintaining patience.The Mighty Rams passing attack will have to be mostly a rushing attack. The Steelers WILL get sacks and WILL hit Warner. The Rams need to except that and then they can better maintain composer and be ready to take advantage when the chance arises.

    I believe this is the one game Martz would have to just step back and let his players play. He tends to get a bit impatient if the "big play" doesn't pop up once every five or six plays. This game won't be won just by points but by time of possession.
