    You've got to take things fortnight by fortnight...

    So what has happened in the last two weeks...

    The Rams went from 1-3 to 3-3.

    The Rams outscored their opponents 72-33.

    The Rams defense and special teams combined for 7 turnovers and 2 TDs, while the offense did not turn the ball over at all.

    Sam Bradford completed 31-50 passes for 339 yards, 6 TDs and 0 Ints. (passer rating of 121.6).

    Zac Stacy ran the ball 32 times for 157 yards.

    Alec Ogletree had 15 tackles, 2 passes defended, 1 interception, a forced fumble and a TD.

    Michael Brockers had 10 tackles, 3 sacks and a forced fumble.


    I'd say things are looking up from a fortnight ago.

    So...

    What will happen in the next fortnight?

    Stay tuned.

    Ha! Thanks for adding a new word to my English vocabulary, fortnight. Had never seen it before and only knew of its Spanish rendering, 'quincena' [keen-SEH-nah (which technically means 15 days)].


    Nevertheless, an interesting account of the Rams accomplishments!

    I'm betting that Dez and some of our other friends from accross the pond know what a fortnight is!

    Everyone? Really? I beg to differ. I saw frustration from losing and getting blown away but I have not seen anyone on this board or outside of this in the Ram community "give up"

    I believe most of us are expecting to go 9-7 or so...meaning we would have to lose 4 more games to make that record. Losing three games this early is unexpected and does make us wonder - then we see our team devastate the Texans, and we know it's all good.

    Yes, you're right, 'catorce días' is 14 days in español. ¡Muy bien!

    However, the usual and traditional term for 'two weeks' is < quincena > because it is divisive of a month's "30 days" in two, i.e., two 15 day periods, < quince > [KEEN-seh] meaning 15.

    This accounting is obviously not precise given the 31 and 28/29 day months. The general idea is, for example, "me pagan cada quincena" -- 'I am paid every 15 days' or, 'two weeks / bi-monthly'.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if the Rams had a 'gran victoria' every quincena?

    A big win every two weeks would yield what, a 9-7 record? If we could also win the odd / final week too!

    GO RAMS EVERY WEEK!

    So we beat the worst team in football, and the team struggling the most in successive weeks.

    While I am thrilled we won those games, I'm not quite ready to declare this some major turnaround just yet.

    There is certainly more work to do, particularly on defense.

    I'll be honest. I had given up during the third qtr of the 49whiners game, and said I wouldn't watch another game until they were worth watching. But then Sunday came around, and I just coudn't stay away. I love my RAMS too much. Fortunately, the last two games were worth watching, and the RAMS were actually fun to watch most of the Houston game.

    I guess I was just venting, and I couldn't really give up. It just isn't in my nature to quit, even when I want to.
