  • Proud of Our Boys!

    The Rams demonstrated that they are truly a team of character. They did not quit, they never surrendered. I am truly proud of all they accomplished and I'm looking forward to another season full of spectacular Ram football. Hey, it ain't called "The Greatest Show on Turf" for nothing!

    :confused: I agree, but I am a little confused at waht happened! I am more proud of the way they handled the loss. It takes class to accept defeat the way our Rams have.:king:

      Stinky Game

      I guess it's great that they fought back and all. But they played so bad the rest of the game! I really felt that the Pats deserved the game. They played great D, and hammered our "WATCH OUT" WRs. You know, Here comes a DB..."WATCH OUT!!!" Duck and dive.

      I hope they keep this sour taste in their mouths for months and months. This team did not show up until the 4th quarter of the biggest game of the year. If it weren't for the defense, we would have been in bigger doo-doo.

      Next year, the schedule get's tougher even. So we'll have to be ready...this'll be a huge offseason. Congrats to the Patriots...seemed it was a good day to be wearing Red, White and Blue.

        I'd be the first to say that it sure felt like those other Rams showed up for the big game. I can't understand why they chose to stick with the passing game so heavily, when it wasn't as if they had Marshall contained when he took the few handoffs that he got, especially in the first half, when they had time to play with. They had that opportunity to take pressure off of Warner and take some of the heat off of the Pats pass coverage. And the Defense on that last drive felt far from urgent. OT could have been a whole new ball game.

        Okay, now that I got my frustrations out, nothin but love for my team. I am still proud of them and I will always be proud of them. They made some mistakes and they paid for them. No team is invincible. Sometimes its all just a matter of timing. That is why I still believe the Rams are the best team in football, and it is a shame that they can't attach the tag "World Champions" on to prove it. So guys I'm still proud of everything you have accomplished in the last few years (Oh yeah, I had to sit through the Tony Banks years), and I will be waiting patiently for you in the next season.

          Lets save all the
          by jdpbmo
          proud of our boys, what a great year, we had some terrific accomplishments, and all that other crap for another day. What kind of defense did they play on that drive? How can you go into a "back up and let them get chunks of yards at a time" defense? What exactly was Lovie calling? I am filled with a tremendous amount of negativity right now just because of the embarrasement we showed for 3 quarters in the biggest game of the year. That forth quarter we showed how good we could be, but then in an instance we let a snot-nose drive right up the field with practically no time on the clock and no timeouts to use. How can anyone justify or rationalize what happened out there? Certainly not by the "thanks for the terrific year boys" or "now we've got something to build on for next year"? Congrats to the Pats for doing what they had to. Their defense was super for 3 quarters and their game plan worked to a tee. Not one player on their team was outstanding until the last drive of the game when Brady was unstoppable and Vinetari was gold. When the Rams scored to tie it up I told my wife that the two problems the Rams had were first, Troy Brown was an outstanding return man and we needed to prevent him from getting a big return. Second, I told her that they had the best field goal kicker in the game and there was still about a minute and 22 seconds left. Now if I am a big football fan, yet far from coach material, wouldn't you think the Rams players and the coaches would be aware of these two very crucial things. I hope to god they weren't in some sort of prevent in the end.

          The no good, the very bad, and the just plain FUGLY...
          by RamsFanSam
          So, I got up yesterday morning at 5:30 AM, excited for opening day of our Rams season. I drive to OTC, driving around for a half hour, searching for a decent parking place. I found one close to my classroom - right next to a dark blue Ram pickup with a Rams logo sticker in the window. Yes, it was an omen of good things for the rest of the day...

          First, Mechanical Power Transmission class and an unannounced quiz - I scored 100%. Yes, it was another omen of first game success.

          Then, Fluid Mechanics - another pop quiz, another 100%.

          I come home, call my health insurance company, and end up spending almost 3 hours trying to explain to them that when my bank transfers money from my account to theirs, that means the bill IS paid. Then, I had to help Brenda take care of a couple of sick foster kittens, which meant running to the store to pick up things, return them, and pick up different things, feeding them with a syringe, and wiping poop off their rear ends. By the time all this was done, it was 30 minutes from kickoff. I should have burned some sage, called a priest, built a shrine to Jobu and sacrificed a chicken, or SOMETHING...

          Then the game started. I think it was about 90 seconds into the first quarter when it hit me.

          This team, the same team that Kroenke, Fisher, and everyone else promised us was going to be a juggernaut - it wasn't just the same old Rams we had in St. Louis. No, this was a different Rams team. Playing the very first game of a new season, with players that we were told were at the top of the heap, every Rams fan was sure that we were going to see a much improved product on the field, and the whiners would cower in fear.

          No, these aren't the same Rams we had in 2015. These Rams - they are special. They take us back to a time in our past that some of us remember well. They give us the same feeling of the Rams of days gone by. These 2016 Rams are out to set or at least tie the records set by the Rams of lore.

          In other was like watching the 2009 Rams. On Xanax.

          I am praying for a miracle before this Sunday. Seeing the Rams on the field for the first time this season was something I have been waiting for. After seeing every weakness exposed last night, I hope we don't have to wait much longer for a win.

          by celtic_ram
          :lid: Well it's been some time now and I guess I can talk about my Rams without using swear words.I don't know what team the NEP played but it was not the Rams, not at least the ones I've been watching all season.I say this without taking anything away from the Pats defense, but we have got some of fastest recievers in the NFL and our O line been right there all season(s)...."The better team did not win"!!! just maybe the better coached team did.Can't wait for the season opener, true blue & gold celtic_ram:lid:

          ROLL CALL ( Trolls check yourselves at the door )
          by Watchdog
          As a public service announcement, it is my self-proclaimed duty to inform the few remaining insolents the last ship to salvation is nearly full. Please proceed to the loading dock and make you're escape from the fledging Ram-nation. And as a bonus you will be provided with all the cheese your little whiskery snouts can slobber up. All aboard!
          Bon voyage sell-outs. May the Vikings and the Lions provide stability and peace of mind.

          Shhh, let em go. We need them like Claude needs a hole in his bong.

          Okay, I'll admit there are few paisley-colored, stinky eggs larger than the one the Rams laid on opening day. And I'll go along with the notion that in some alternate universe, karma has confused this team as being the loser of last year's super-bowl. But blow my horn, I know damn well that there is absolutely nothing at all Ram on any part of my Madden '08 cover.

          So what gives?

          As easy as it is to join the "poor-us" pity train, I just don't think it fits well. At the risk of providing a good example with a bad vision, we saw this very same scenario play out with the Seahawks last year at a much higher level.

          Even Ham-bone the witch-doctor couldn't chant Shaun Alexander's broken foot back together, but they persevered all the way to the playoffs on Seneca Wallace's inept shoulders.

          But Watchdog, the Hawks killed us-they always kill the Rams!

          Shut up troll, why aren't you on the boat?

          I really don't think I need to elaborate on my point.

          When you lose four, potentially five starters, some may say that's par for the course.

          When you do it in the space between the first and the second game - well, pardon my french - that just sucks a$$.

          But don't cry - that MO went out with our beloved Dick Vermiel. Think of all the benefits our team can achieve in light of all the tragedy.

          *Marc Bulger will become a better scrambling quarterback by necessity after a few games spent running for his life.

          *The team water-boy has a better chance than ever to become the next Bobby Bouche'

          *Georgia Frontiere can put on her forty-year-old nurse uniform and finally feel like she has a purpose.

          Forgive me for the levity, but it occurs to me that a little lightening up is in order, and a little bit of reason. So let's all take a collective step back and take a look at what we have going for us here.

          Sure we're looking at an extremely unfortunate start to our season, but these are the cards that have been dealt to us. Though it seems bad, this has all the makings of, in the best scenario, a really special story of courage and fortitude. In place of our starters there are many budding first-break tales that could be every bit as reminiscent as the legend of Kurt Warner. There are champions with rings in the locker...

          OK, convince me!
          by RamsFanSam
          I have read plenty of posts from people saying fans shouldn't look at the bright side of last night's defeat, that instead we should all don sackcloth and ashes, and mourn the death of the 2008 season for our Rams.

          Convince me why I should!

          I watched only the first quarter, but I did listen to the entire game. Of course, the TV broadcast was done by the Titans Network, meaning that the commentary was biased in favor of the Titans. The other 3 quarters was a mix of NFL's gamecenter and KTVI audio, niether of which was very good.

          What I came out of the media barrage I witnessed is the following:

          1. Marc looked a little rusty. Of course, considering that there was only TWO others on the offense who had ever played in Saunder's system, I expected to see some confusion. But, I guess that since Marc didn't launch a 99 yard Hail Mary for 6 on the first possession means that Marc is all washed up. After all, when a reciever isn't in the right place at the right time, it's always the QB's fault.

          2. I also saw a really good defense beat our O-line. Considering that these front five guys have NEVER played a single game together before, We know it's all Pace's fault. He is all washed up, and we should have traded for Jake Long and then overpaid him to take Pace's spot.

          3. I saw 2 passes go long, so long that no one on either team had a chance to get to them. It didn't matter that both times the recievers were double covered and had no chance in hell of breaking away, those recievers must suck, so we should have traded them for some untested rookie. Darn Linehan for drafting someone who has skills that our offense could use instead of some other rookie!

          4. I saw our defense get beat up. Badly. Even though they made a solid stand in the red zone, we know they suck. It doesn't matter that some of our starters were out, we should have beaten the Titans back into the stone age with undersized, inexperienced rookies. It's all Haslett's fault for not having UFA's and rookies available that we can afford.

          5. Our "wannabe's" didn't come back in the second half and win the game. Of course, they have had a whole 90 days or so to forget everything they ever learned about football just to learn football all over again. I forget that other millionaires such as Bill Gates have been there before. Didn't he have to forget everything he knew about Windows 98 to learn Windows XP in just 90 days? He didn't? Oh my. Those rookies and coaches have to go....NOW!

          So, as you can see, I am NOT saying everything will be OK by next week. In fact, I'll be happy if we win 3 of our first 8, and come out 8-8 this season. I know all is not well in St. Louis as of yet, and I didn't expect it to be. Last year I had hope, because everything was in place. This year, we have a tougher schedule, most of our great players are either gone or they are getting...
