  • It's ONE (1) guy?

    Is it just me, or do we have the opportunity to play just one guy this Sunday?

    I'm not sure, but I'm thinking if that's the case, maybe we have a chance.

    Who am I missing that I should be concerned about on the Philly offense outside of McNabb?

    I'm just stuck in the mind set that if the Rams don't turn the ball over, they walk away with this game. Am I crazy?

    GO RAMS !!!:mask:

        I think one of the Eagle fans said his name was Mcnabe.

          Something we've heard all year.

          And something no one has been consistently able to do.

          If all you have to do is "stop McNabb" why should you guys even bother covering everyone else? Why not just bring all eleven guys up to the line and blitz 'em all every down?

          We've got some decent talent besides McNabb on that offense. The fact that you don't know about any of them speaks volumes about your lack of knowledge on football.

              I know the Whiners stopped you SEVEN times on the one yard line. Lots of talent there Penn.

              I forgot more about football than you will ever know Penn. Go study and come back when you are much more educated.

                The Eagles have one other player I think you have to key on somewhat and that would be running back Duce Staley. I'm a Bengals fan (don't laugh) who got on the Rams wagon early when no one believed the Rams could hold their win streak together in '99. I believed in Warner early.

                Anyway, Duce reminds me of Corey Dillon. He is a guy who is building a reputation for himself. Staley gets hurt some, but he is dangerous, not only as a runner but, especially lately, he has been dangerous catching passes for T.D.'s. He's no Marshall Faulk, but he must be accounted for.

                The only other guy you might have to keep an eye on would be James Thrash. He is decent and benefits from the attention McNabb demands from the defense. They broke down a Philly play on Edge NFL Matchup last night that showed the Chicago Def. shutting down the Eagles on a pass play for the first three seconds of the tape.

                Then McNabb, rolled to his left, looked like he was going to run, and the Def. adjusted to him. This left Thrash open for a quick pass with 10-20 YAK! Also, I watched McNabb run for lots of decent yards last week on busted plays. He can be dangerous.
                But, there is NO team in football who stops the Rams if they don't stop themselves. Martz is a genius, and Warner, Faulk and co. are a fine tuned machine that is going to roll over everyone. Go Rams!

                  First of all, txramsfan, judging from your 47-10 prediction and inability to explain it when I CALLED YOU OUT on it, I'd say you forgot EVERYTHING about football and then some.

                  Sure, I'll mention names. Thrash, Chad Lewis, Staley, Buckhalter, Freddie Mitchell--not great, but decent. And lost in all this "one-man" talk is the fact that it's not like McNabb's improvisational plays are some kind of miracle plays--it takes the other offensive players continuing to work to get open while he's running around out there to make a "busted play" an ultimately successful one.

                  And this thing, I just quoted is absolutely hilarious and epitomizes the garbage I've read on here all week. Where do you see a freaking comparison with Duce and Corey Dillon? The book on Dillon is that he's a great runner and not as good a receiver. Pretty much the opposite of Staley, huh?

                  And this:

                  "But, there is NO team in football who stops the Rams if they don't stop themselves. Martz is a genius, and Warner, Faulk and co. are a fine tuned machine that is going to roll over everyone. "

                  is the issue I have with Rams fans. This kind of smug, blathering talk with no kind of factual basis at all is what I've seen too much of. I don't ask for much out of a football conversation--just some logical talk...and that's been in short supply here.

                    In the Rams two losses this year they have turned the ball over 13 times.They lost to the Saints by 3 points and they lost to the Bucs by a touchdown.So in two games thats a combined total of ten points that decided these two games.We have to give credit to the Saints/Bucs defense's,but the Rams did beat themselves by not taking care of the football.So,our thinking is not arrogance but fact.If the Rams dont turn the ball over,more than likely they will win.I really think the Eagles will play us tough tommorrow,but as long as we take care of the football,I believe we will win.

                      OK Backoff Turbo !

                      Hey Penn,

                      Thanks for chiming in. I started this post and let me explain. It's not that I think there is only one weapon on the Eagles offense, it's just that McNabb statistically has provided 73% of the eagles total offense this year.

                      My point is simple, stop McNabb, stop the Eagles. Not even the most die hard fan can argue that.

                      Ram fans are not stupid, neither are Eagles fans, but reality must dawn on each of us at one point in our life.

                      McNabb has the potential to be one of the greats of his time. He is a star, the biggest on the Eagle team. I just think if the Rams can contain him, they'll win quite easily. In the 4th quarter of the first game of this year, the Rams could not contain him and he ate them apart. Without his unmatched talent, the Eagles would be a nothing team.

                      Yes, just like the Rams would not be the same team without Warner but you've got to admit, the Rams would be a much better team without Warner than the Eagles would be without McNabb.

                      All of this is just fodder for the night before the game.

                      This, however, is not.

                      The Eagles victories came against the following teams this year in the regular season: Seattle, Dallas, NY Giants, Arizona, Minnesota, KC, SD, & TB. Guess how many of those teams were playoff bound? That's right, one. TB.

                      Congrats, you beat the worst team in the playoffs and you then moved on to beat the next worst team in the playoffs in the Bears, who cruised through the year by the seat of their pants playing a 5th place schedule that was so easy the NFL had to realign to avoid having it happen again.

                      Who'd the Rams beat this year: Philly,SF, Miami, Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans, Carolina, Giants, Jets, Patriots, Indy. How many of these teams were (are) in the playoffs? Well, let's see, five. That's right, five. By the way, two of them are still in the hunt.

                      Now, let's look at your victory over Chicago. Great game. The Bears lost to the Packers twice during the year. The Rams slammed the Packers.

                      Starting to see what I see?

                      I will say this, Philly has a class team. They are top notch guys and I like the whole team and coaching staff. If the Rams lose, I hope Philly takes it all.

                      Should be a great game and if Philly wins, they have pulled of what I deem as one of the greatest playoff runs of all time in the NFL.

                      GOOD LUCK!!!

                      GO RAMS

                        Two Guys Talk or Eleven?

                        It's all kind of curious. The fans of each team echo each other.

                        Kill Warner, stop McNabb. Not very respectful of the other team members.

                        It's curious, both teams in the Championship, both relying on at least what I call "unbalanced" attention to their quarterbacks.

                        Of course when you get away from that match, the passing-most QB against the rushing-most QB things fall apart.

                        It will interesting to see which coaching staff and team will demonstrate this clearly.

                        :ram:

                          Wasn't as easy as you thought, was it?

                          Warner and Faulk had great games, Faulk especially.

                          Nice game; hope you guys appreciated what you saw.

                            Great game by the Eagles. Thought the offensive line played the best against us all year.

                              I hate to say this but judging from PennEagle's post, the Eagles acheived another moral victory. Your team is 2-0 in the moral victory column against the Rams this year. Way to go.

                                I'm a realist
                                by HUbison
                                That phrase always makes me giggle a little when I hear it. And so this time of year, as you can imagine, there's a lot to laugh about.

                                That phrase...."I'm a realist".....has been used by countless numbers of fans, yours truly included. But here's the big newsflash:

                                Everyone considers themselves a "realist".

                                No fan is going to say "I'm an unrealist. I have no frickin' clue, and you should disregard my opinion as such." Hence, the reason I have to laugh when someone claims themselves to be a "realist". Guess what? We ALL are! It's the equivalent of saying "I'm the type of human that turns oxygen into carbon dioxide". Yea, you and 6 billion others on this big spinning ball.

                                So, what's really going on with that phrase? I'm sure there's all sorts of motive, but if we're being honest, most of the time that phrase is uttered in the author's attempt to display an opinion valued higher than others. "I'm a realist" is more detailed as "I'm a realist, which means my opinion is what will actually happen. That, of course, contrasts with everyone who disagrees with me; as they are by definition, unrealists."

                                And I'm absolutely right on this matter, because..........(wait for it, wait for it)..........................I'm a realist.

                                It took 40 years...
                                by VegasRam
                                but I'm finally at peace. I seem to have experienced a catharsis of sorts yesterday, when either Wilkins missed his first field goal, or Bulger threw the pick in the end zone.

                                It essentially became the culmination of every muff we've had this season.

                                I shook my head slightly, and with a sad little smile, recalled one of my favorite jokes:

                                "Lord, Ive done everything you've asked of me and never complained - I've even spent three days in the belly of a whale - and just want to understand one thing; 'Why me?'"

                                To which the Lord repied, " I don't know Job, there' somethin' 'bout you just pisses me off"

                                Anyway, I'm still gonna' love 'em, and watch 'em and root for 'em, and whatever happens, happens.

                                It's just not going to be quite so painful anymore.

                                And oh by the way, if Bulger EVER (consistently) had three or four seconds to throw, instead of two, he'd be being mentioned in the same breath as , (dare I say it?), Brady and Manning, (or at least Palmer and McNabb and Brees).

                                It's just too simple, which is why everyone's looking everywhere else.

                                It's the O-line, stupid.

                                The Rams have my loyalty, but they'll have to earn...
                                by AvengerRam
                                ...my time.

                                Time for a little post-debacle rambling, if may be so indulgent...

                                I, like most of you, have a lot going on in my life. Family, kids, work, hobbies, etc.

                                My time is valuable.

                                So where do the Rams fit in all of that?

                                The Rams are a distraction. Entertainment. A whimsical interlude between the moments that really matter.

                                I am a fan. I have been for decades. That's not going to change.

                                But I'm not a true fanatic. Not at this point in my life, when I'm several years older than the oldest player on the team.

                                When the distraction.... the entertainment... the whimsical interlude becomes instead a source of embarrassment, hopelessness, and stress...

                                Well, at that point, is ceases to be something worth the allocation of my precious time.

                                So... where does that leave me?

                                Next Sunday, when the Rams play the Seahawks... maybe I won't glue myself to Red Zone. Maybe I'll ride my bike, or go to the gym, or see a movie.

                                We'll see. We'll see what Sunday brings.

                                The week after that, I've got tickets to see the Rams play the Bucs. I'll be there. Heck, I may even bring my optimism with me.

                                But... at some point...

                                I'm not sure this version of the Rams, with these coaches, and these players, is worth too much of my time.

                                Maybe I'm just getting a little old for all of this.

                                Maybe the years of futility are finally catching up with me (I can just hear a few of you saying... "yes... come to the dark side!... let the hate flow through you..." )

                                I'll always be around... watching... lurking... waiting... hoping...

                                But active fandom for this team?

                                It doesn't seem to be worth my time right now.

                                Maybe tomorrow....

                                Wednesday, December 14, 2005



                                (Opening statement)

                                “I thought we came back today and practiced with great intent, enthusiasm. We were quick, focused. It was a good practice.”



                                (On bringing up TE Jerome Collins and DT Jeremy Calahan)

                                “All the moves that we’ve made, we think are going to give us the best chance to win our next football game. We brought some of the young kids up that have worked hard all year. They deserved a chance.”



                                (On CB Travis Fisher)

                                “We have three weeks left. We have to move on.”



                                (On where T Rex Tucker was today)

                                “Flu, he had it last week really bad. He had some relapses today, so we’re going to get him on some IVs and try to get him as healthy as we can.”



                                (On DE Leonard Little and T Orlando Pace)

                                “Orlando has a groin, he’ll be ready to go. We just rested that. Leonard has a knee and an ankle. We’re just resting that a little bit. They’ll both be ready to go.”



                                (On if Collins and Calahan will get playing time on Sunday)

                                “We’ll see how they practice. Those who practice the best are going to play.”



                                (On who will be returning kicks against Philadelphia)

                                “We worked three today, we worked Dane , A.C. and worked Marshall back there a little bit. We’ll sort that out by the end of the week. Marshall volunteered for that.”



                                (On if it will be the same for kickoffs)

                                “Same three, and Chris Johnson also.”




                                (On if Faulk has been pushing to return kicks for a while)

                                “No, not that I know of.”



                                (On if Faulk has ever returned kicks before)

                                “Yes.”



                                (On if it surprised him that Faulk wanted to return kicks)

                                “No, not with him. He wants to contribute.”



                                (On Eagles’ RB Ryan Moats)

                                “Quick, really quick. He’s a legitimate 4.48 guy. He gets to the perimeter quick. They attack your force, and if you miss a tackle, he’s gone. The good thing about it is, it’s a similar game plan to a week ago in the running game, where they’re going to test your force on the outside. We’ve made some adjustments, but it’s going to be a challenge.”







                                (On if this game is an indicator of what can happen to good teams in the NFL)

                                “Well, they’re still the NFC champs until somebody else takes their crown, and we are what we are right now, but that’s kind of the National Football League. Injuries played a big part, a lot of things take a big part. All you can do is try to prepare to win your next game.”

                                Anybody else got that nervous, jittery feeling inside? I cannot believe the season is already here. We are relatively healthy, have returned most of the same players we had last year, added a few young playmakers and one of the most genius offensive minds on the face of the earth, and have added experience and renewed enthusiasm across the board ...

                                I really don't know what this season has in store. When I picture it, I really see an improved offense. I do not know if it can even approach GSOT producitivity, but it does have some potential to be explosive depending on how the youngsters react to the complicated system. If Drew Bennett can perform, I do think this offense can be downright scary ...

                                With that said, I am equally, if not more, enthusiastic about this defense. Depth issues aside, I really see several major playmakers on this defense, and this might finally be the year that we back into the top half of the league defensively. I saw flashes of this last year, but with that offense, they just couldn't maintain the intensity ...

                                I don't even know where to start when predicting a final record. This team is CAPABLE of 10 wins I believe. Looking at the first four games, I don't believe this is as difficult of a stretch as originally anticipated. I do worry about Dallas and New England in a three game stretch, but with a good start, we can weather that storm ...

                                Regardless, wake up early tommorrow, eat a big breakfast, and sit behind your TV, or your radio, or the computer, and ENJOY yourself. I am sure you are just like me, and you desparately want a win on opening day, but remember, no matter what happens, it is just a game. BE GRATEFUL EVERYDAY THAT WE ARE HEALTHY, FREE, AND EVEN GET A CHANCE TO WATCH THIS GREAT GAME. And we will all bash the players, but for the most people, they are just normal people too, extremely well paid, normal people, that give their most every day. We will get on this board after the game tommorrow, and we will rejoice, be happy, be sad, we will ***** and moan, some may groan, or we may have a big party, and all get drunk, win or lose ...

                                Regardless, I am proud to be a member of this board. I am proud to be a Ram's fan, and I will proudly support this team every day of the rest of my life, whether they play in St. Louis, Los Angeles, or Scandanavia!

                                As for all the haters, including a few of the fans on this board, when the ship is sailing smoothly, don't fear to jump back aboard. There is always room, but remember it won't be in first class. But for this party, it won't matter friends ...

                                GO RAMS! LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED RIGHT!!!

                                GO RAMS! GO RAMS! GO RAMS!!!!!!!!

                                AND LET ME HEAR AN AMEN TO THAT MY FRIENDS!!!! ITS GONNA BE A FUN RIDE!

                                Rams 23, Eagles 17!
