    Will the Rams make the playoffs?

    With the offseason crawling along at a snail's pace, there isn't a terrible amount of information to report regarding the St. Louis Rams . Thus, when all else fails, we turn to such things as draft grades and previews to ward off the shakes until we can score our syringe full of NFL smack come September.

    Therefore, we present to you, the reader, the following preview of the Rams upcoming season. I won't go into detail as to the highly scientific method utilized to reach the following conclusions, as understanding would only drive you to the brink of madness:


    Carolina: The combination of Opening Day and it being the "we don't need Kris Jenkins" game has Rams fans in a frenzy from the outset. In contrast to its slow start last season, the Rams' offense comes out with all cylinders firing. Richie Incognito "accidentally" gets a forearm underneath Kris Jenkins' facemask, staining the fertile artificial grass crimson with blood and teeth. The feared Carolina defense looks extremely ordinary and the Rams put the league on notice. Rams win 34-17.


    San Francisco: The Niners put their well-paid henchmen to the test against the potent St. Louis offense. The Rams' receivers immediately turn Nate Clements inside out, proving no cornerback in the league is worth $80 million, or even half that amount. However, unlike the previous week, the Rams are in for a slugfest against a San Francisco squad that is always up for its contests with the blue and gold, regardless of either teams' record or talent level.

    The Rams pull out a close one against an obviously improved ***** squad, suggestive of the once and future yearly battle for the NFC West crown. Rams win 24-20.


    @ Tampa Bay: The once-fierce rivalry has since fizzled, but the Bucs, still looking for their first win of the season, dig in against the high-flying Rams. Jon Gruden attempts to exploit the traditionally weak Rams rushing defense by pounding Cadillac Williams between the tackles, but the St. Louis defenders are equal to the task.

    However, the Rams' offense is unable to run effectively against the still staunch Bucs' defense and both teams must throw to generate offense. The newly spleenless Chris Simms plays valiantly, matching Marc Bulger pass for pass in terms of accuracy and sending the game into overtime, tied 17-17.

    The closely contested quarterback duel continues in OT, where it is evident that the first team to make a mistake will seal its fate. It is Simms who flinches first, and Tye Hill jumps a slant pattern and takes it to the house. Rams win 23-17.


    @ Dallas: Bill Maas' streak of 18 straight games as Fox's color commentator for the Rams broadcast is broken as the A-team (sans B.A. Baracus) of Troy Aikman and Joe Buck is trotted out for the battle with the likewise undefeated Cowboys.

    The Rams look ordinary after their thrilling victory a week prior. Tony Romo completes three TD passes, but none to superstar Terrell Owens, who immediately accuses his QB of ignoring him because Romo is, quote, "obviously gay." T.O. is promptly suspended by owner Jerry Jones, in turn causing Owens to hold workout sessions in front of Texas Stadium each Sunday.

    The Rams drop their first game of the season to the Cowboys, who win by a field goal in large part because Romo is no longer the holder. Final score: 24-21.


    Arizona: A combination of an improved Rams D-line and an even more diminished Cardinals O-line leads to the first sack of Adam Carriker's career, knocking Matt Leinart out of the game. With the Rams up 14-3 in the second quarter, Kurt Warner enters and proceeds to torch the St. Louis secondary, putting up 300-plus passing yards and three touchdowns before the end of the third quarter allowing the Cards to come roaring back. Warner then fumbles on three successive possessions and the Rams pull out a squeaker, 34-31.

    After the game, Brenda Warner calls a joint press conference with Doug Christie's wife, explaining that "God caused Kurt to fumble" and it is time to announce his re-retirement. Sitting quietly at his wife's side, Kurt Warner's only comment is, "I'm not allowed to comment."


    @ Baltimore: The contest quickly becomes a battle of attrition in a low-scoring defensive struggle. With the Rams down by six in the waning minutes, the Ravens need only make a goal-line stand to preserve the hard-fought victory. Steven Jackson pauses only long enough to wave to the terminally ill child in the stands before lowering his head into Ray Lewis' chest and driving him into the endzone for the winning score. Reminiscent of your favorite Hollywood football cliché, Rams win, 14-13.


    @ Seattle: The once-highly anticipated contest with their coffee-swilling rivals from the northwest has dimmed somewhat by the fact that a re-injured Matt Hasselbeck and a still-injured Shaun Alexander cause the Seahawks to stumble out to a 3-3 start.

    Unfortunately for St. Louis, Seattle wakes up for the fiercely contested rivalry and mirrors its impressive play from the last few seasons. The Rams give as good as they get, and the lead trades hands several times. Down by two in the fourth quarter, the Rams drive into field goal range with a handful of seconds left. Maas repeatedly reminds the viewing audience that place-kicker Jeff Wilkins is perfect on the season to that point, naturally resulting in Wilkins pushing the 48-yard attempt wide right in a sickening turn of irony as time expires. The Rams lose in heartbreaking fashion, 30-28.


    Cleveland: There is much speculation that the crushing defeat in Seattle a week prior would deflate the Rams, but it is not to be. The Rams jump all over the Browns, evoking shades of Az-Zahir Hakim pushing/punching that Browns defender in the back of the head as he danced in for the score during the Rams 1999 contest with Cleveland.

    Brady Quinn, who has already been labeled a bust before midseason, actually manages to throw his first touchdown pass of the year, but to no avail. The Rams gut the ineffectual Browns, 41-13.

    At this point the Rams head into their bye week with an impressive 6-2 record.


    @ New Orleans: St. Louis simply has no answer for the powerful hype of Reggie Bush and the Rams set a record for most penalties incurred, including the newly adopted "tackling the Reggie Bush" foul. The Rams have their first truly poor outing of the season while Drew Brees and Deuce McAllister are in rare form. Saints win 28-13.


    @ San Francisco: With Tye Hill and Fakhir Brown sidelined with injuries, the Rams are forced to play CB Mike Rumph against his former squad. Alex Smith calls six consecutive "Stop and Go" plays, the last three being called at the line, in plain English, while looking directly at Rumph. The newly acquired CB falls down each time during the "and Go" part of the play and the ***** enter the half ahead 21-7.

    The Niners are able to contain Steven Jackson with the speed of their linebackers but still have no answer for the Rams' receivers. Nate Clements is burned late in the fourth quarter by Torry Holt for a touchdown, tying the score at 31. The fans at Monster Park are on the edges of their seats as the ***** take over with seven seconds left on the clock on their own 28-yard line. Smith stands over center, points at Rumph, then at the man Rumph is covering, Darrell Jackson and yells, "You go long." ***** win 38-31.


    Seattle: After dropping the previous two games, the Rams face a must win against the resurgent, division-leading Seahawks. The Seahawks, who have gone undefeated since their previous victory over St. Louis, come to town boasting a 7-3 record. Rather than presenting the battle for the NFC West lead as their national telecast, the Fox Network opts instead to show the 4-6 Vikings at the 3-7 Giants because the nation can't get enough coverage of New York or players named Manning, even if it is the terrible one.

    The game proves to not be much of a contest, as the Rams' defense focuses on stopping Shaun Alexander (now running on a permanently broken foot) and double covering WR Deion Branch. The St. Louis fans nearly riot in celebration as their yearning for revenge is finally realized. Rams win 27-10.


    Atlanta: Rather than being greeted by the requisite boos that most visiting teams endure, Michael Vick and the Falcons are welcomed by a chorus of Arsenio Hall-type "woofs" from the St. Louis crowd. Vick, having a lousy season, goes 0 for 13 on passing attempts in the first half, but announcers insist it's because every receiver the Falcons have ever had drop all of Vick's throws.

    Down 14-0 at the half, Falcons head coach Bobby Petrino makes an impassioned speech to his players in the locker-room about how -- although they still need to do more to help Vick -- they will be switching to the wishbone offense in the second half. Petrino believes this new scheme will better protect his quarterback, but the new strategy proves to be unnecessary as Vick is hauled away screaming by the FBI at halftime.

    When asked his thoughts about the incident when coming out of the tunnel for the second half, Petrino tells the sideline reporter, "We will rally around Joey Harrington, and we will play good football." Rams win 44-3.


    @ Cincinnati: After public fear the Bengals would forfeit because the Cincinnati work-release program doesn't begin until the following Monday subsides, the Rams storm the field and jump out to a 17-3 lead over the shorthanded Bengals. However, many Cincinnati players are able to post bond by halftime and the Bengals make a miraculous comeback, sending the game into overtime tied at 27.

    Carson Palmer hits Chad Johnson over the middle, who makes the mismatched Brandon Chillar miss, and then races down the sideline. Johnson sprints in for the winning score, but he is subsequently murdered by Richie Incognito, who leaps off the Rams' bench and piledrives Johnson as he tries to unveil his latest endzone celebration where he lies on his back with his legs open and appears to give birth to the football. Bengals win 33-27 and Incognito is suspended one game for leaving the bench during an altercation.


    Green Bay: Brett Favre, now a shell of his former self, throws four INTs, but is nonetheless praised by the announcers because he can still "rocket the ball in there." The Rams take advantage with interception returns for touchdowns by Hill and O.J. Atogwe. The St. Louis defense holds the spotlight for a change and the Rams win 20-6. The headline in the Green Bay Press Gazette the next morning reads: "Favre hints at retirement, nobody cares."


    Pittsburgh: Concerns over Ben Roethlisberger having post-concussion syndrome from last year's preseason accident begin to mount after the quarterback lines up under center on the opening possession wearing a motorcycle helmet. Before halftime, Roethlisberger insists to a sideline reporter that he is no worse for wear and that his play hasn't tailed off at all, but no one notices as he is the same ineffective QB he was last year.

    The NFL Network, desperately hoping the Steelers will be good enough to hype Big Ben as Comeback Player of the Year, now realize that their time is much better spent on 24-hour-a-day coverage of Reggie Bush. The Rams eat up the once-proud Pittsburgh defense and the Steelers come to the realization that they are not the same team they were when perpetually showered by Bill Cowher's motivational spittle each day. Rams win 24-10.


    @ Arizona: Unable to win the tiebreaker with the 11-5 division-leading Seahawks and assured of a wild-card berth, the Rams rest their starters after halftime for the final contest of the season. With Kurt Warner replacing the injured Matt Leinart, Arizona has become a mirror image of what the Rams used to be: great offense, zero defense. Warner has an impressive outing, throwing for over 400 yards against the disinterested Rams.

    Brenda Warner announces her decision to allow Kurt to un-re-retire and Warner ends the season setting an NFL record as the first QB in history to lead the league in completion percentage with unopposable thumbs. Cardinals win 30-17.


    Wild Card, @ Chicago: The Bears, who are the first team in league history to win their division with a 7-9 record, play host to the 10-6 Rams. The game becomes a defensive struggle as the Ram offense is rendered ineffective by Chicago's defense, and the Bears' offense is rendered ineffective by Rex Grossman.

    Reminiscent of the classic struggle with the Buccaneers in the 1999 NFC Championship game, the Rams pull out a tremendous victory with an acrobatic touchdown grab from Drew Bennett in the fourth quarter. Rams win 13-6.


    Divisional Playoff, Rams at Reggie Bush: Fueled by tremendous heart as well as hype, the New Orleans Saints host the Rams in a much-anticipated rematch. Bush is named league MVP despite not being a starter and having half the statistical numbers of Deuce McAllister. The two teams are evenly matched and exchange scores well into the final quarter.

    With the score tied 34-34 halfway through the fourth quarter, it is evident that either team could pull out the victory. At this point, referee Ed Hochuli receives a phone call from commissioner Roger Goodell and afterward the Rams' fortunes begin to change.

    St. Louis is flagged on four successive plays for, in order: holding, false start, illegal motion and traveling. The Rams are forced to punt the ball to Reggie Bush, who jukes his way toward the sideline where it appears Todd Johnson has just the right angle to level him. However, Hochuli "trips" right in front of the defender, throwing a wicked cut block on Johnson; Bush then runs unmolested to the endzone, for what proves to be the winning score. The Saints win, 41-34, leaving St. Louis victimized by the greatest instance of highway robbery by the zebras since Super Bowl XXXVI. The Rams end their year disappointed, but they take heart in their successful season and the promise of future success.

    In case you were wondering, the Saints win the NFC and move on to play in their first Super Bowl ever, where they eventually lose to, let's say, the Texans.

    Rams better win the division if they figure on making the playoffs. I do not think they will make the playoffs as a WC. Especially with multiple teams in the NFCE that could easily make the playoffs.

    RFTID, for weeks, months, I've been admiring the Rams collage you have at your signature. 'Don't know how you got it but it is simply the best group of modern day Ram images I have seen. So nice.

    I hope we'll be able to see the 2007 Rams in there as a playoff team ... and beyond! :r

    Thanks I made it myself in Microsoft publisher using pics I have taken and pics I have collected over the years. I need to update it though with new players and get rid of the ones left.

    The column was more satirical than serious. I'm guessing since you replied 2 minutes after I posted it than you didn't read it.

    Re: Will the Rams make the playoffs?

    Let's not forget that there are multiple teams in the NFCS, NFCE and NFCW that could all make a run at the wild card.

    You could practically list every team in the west, 3 of the four teams in the east, and at least two, maybe three from the south.

The game becomes a defensive struggle as the Ram offense is rendered ineffective by Chicago's defense, and the Bears' offense is rendered ineffective by Rex Grossman.

    Reminiscent of the classic struggle with the Buccaneers in the 1999 NFC Championship game, the Rams pull out a tremendous victory with an acrobatic touchdown grab from Drew Bennett in the fourth quarter. Rams win 13-6.

However, Hochuli "trips" right in front of the defender, throwing a wicked cut block on Johnson; Bush then runs unmolested to the endzone, for what proves to be the winning score. The Saints win, 41-34, leaving St. Louis victimized by the greatest instance of highway robbery by the zebras since Super Bowl XXXVI. The Rams end their year disappointed, but they take heart in their successful season and the promise of future success.

    In case you were wondering, the Saints win the NFC and move on to play in their first Super Bowl ever, where they eventually lose to, let's say, the Texans.

    Re: Will the Rams make the playoffs?

    Playoffs????? I want another high draft choice, go out get the best free agents available. Trade Jackson, and put Bulger on waivers and let Berlin be the QB of the future. Keep rebuilding the secondary and o line and fire the ownership lol.
    Just for starters!!!!

    Do you people even read a post before commenting on it? One, it was a joke. Two, it was posted over a year ago.
