    You have to know the identity of your ballclub.

    In the NFL you must know your team's identity and play to their strong suits and talents. Look at the Denver Broncos and the all mighty TEEEEBOOOWWW!!!! They have tailored the offense around his talents to get the most out of their offense. Look at the niners, they have turned into a ball control pound it out offense. Those are their identities of the ballclub and stick withit. We are not playing to our strong suits on this team. We do not have the receivers or the TES to play the Mcdaniels type of offense that is a big reason why we have been losing.

    Actually, their offense has averaged 17 ppg. in the games Tebow has started (compared to 21.5 when Orton started). Its their defense that has been allowing them to win games.

    The problem with Denver is that it took putting in a QB who can't throw for them to realize that they are a running/defensive team, not a passing team.

    Otherwise, your point is well taken.

    First, "We" dont play. "We" arent doing anything...beyond commenting. The RAMS...quite frankly...dont have ANY "strong suits". This is a battered, aimless franchise. The Rams have no real identity and have not since 'GSOT'...other than HAPLESS LOSERS.

    Well, that certainly explains why you are reluctant to use first person plural pronouns.

    Its true. The team has no real strengths or identity. Not a running team, nor a passing team. All we know is that the defense is weak and at times bend but dont break.

    Re: You have to know the identity of your ballclub.

    We have an identity....Not sure what to call but.....It's all based on what Spags feels is the strength of the opposing teams offense. We focus on their passing game and they run all over us. (Cardinals, Cowboys) We focus on their running game and they throw all over us. (Baltimore) We determine the oppositions defense is stout against the run, we basically park Steven Jackson. (Seattle)

    Instead of us sticking to what we are best at and force our opponents to make adjustments we compromise our talent based on our opposition!

    Sick of it!!!! see Ya SPAGS!!!

    The difference with the ***** is that they are more balanced offense now. They used to only pass when it was 3 and 15. Other than that they would only hand off to Gore. Now they mix up the run and pass like a normal team.

    Agree and disagree.

    I Agree that we dont do anything beside commentating, which sucks cause im sure just about everyone here would love to somehow be a player for the rams.

    I disagree because we are part of the Rams. without the fans there is no Rams. When i talk in the chatroom i refer to "We" as in reference to the rams. We put this team in our heart and have made it part of our life. So i have no problem with the times i say "we need a new coach/we need to create more turnovers/we need a win/etc."
    And with where you say we arnt doing anything, we pay money to see the rams, we buy there jerseys, clothing with there logos, we follow the rams every move of every week. im excited every week for sunday to watch the rams and in the offseason i look everywhere for anybit of news. Thats not nothing.

    Now back to the agreeing part.

    I completely agree, we have no identity, we are basically a team in purgatory, a void. we still had an identity when Martz was HC, but it was slowly diminishing. Tehn we had Linehan and Spags who basically have as much emotion and balls as Barbie and Ken doll. We have been faceless for many years, we definatly need a new HC that has some charisma to change this major downfall.

    And i agree, besides a few good times here and there over the last 6 years, we have been hapless losers.

    As much as i hate Obama, i am gonna reference him here:

    "It's time for a change!!!"


    P.A.S.S. approves this message.

    Maybe this will qualify as a new "Dead Horse" category, but we haven't any identity other than the NFL doormat since Georgia took over the team. Minus the GSOT years of course.

    This is so wrong.

    We are particularly strong in the injury department, outmatched by few if any, in the NFL!!
