    Yeah, I think we're slightly better on the rug, but I would lay this more on the competition we've played rather than the surface on which we played them.

    1. Lost vs Caorlina 27-13 (Steven Jackson fumbles twice)
    2. Lost vs San Fran 17-16 ( Holt fumbles through the endzone & Dante' Hall fumbles a punt)
    3. Lost vs Arizona 34-31 ( The refs stole this game from us)
    4. Lost vs Cleveland 27-20 ( Ahead 14-3 when Steven Jackson goes out with the back injury)

    Our offense has put up 117 points and averaged 361.4 net yards per "Indoor" game.

    Outdoors is a completely different picture. Granted obviously all "outdoor" games are road games. We are 1-4 "outdoors" with our lone win coming against the pathetic Whiners.

    1. Lost @ Tampa Bay 24-3
    2. Lost @ Dallas 35-7
    3. Lost @ Baltimore 22-3
    4. Lost @ Seattle 33-6
    5. Won @ San Fran 13-9

    Our offense has scored 32 as in thirty-two points in 5 "outdoor" road games. While averaging an equally embarrassing 224.8 total net yards per game.

    The good news is that we have 6 regular season games left to play. 4 of which will be played "in" the Edward Jones Dome. The other 2 will be at Cincinnati and Arizona.

    My question is this: Does our team have a problem with "outdoor" football? I mean liars figure but figures don't lie. We are horrendous "OUTDOORS"!
    I can't argue the fact that we play better indoors. One thing that I see for this season is our road games were usually against better defenses (other than the Saints - indoors). Tampa, Dallas, Balt are all good. Seattle has a decent D, same with SF.

    So that's just one thing I see as to why we are worse on the road this year so far.

    I'm just glad we're going for three in a row indoors!

    Re: Indoors vs. Outdoors

    Let me it take this a step further.

    For the 2006 season we played 7 "outdoor" games and 9 "indoor" games.

    OUTDOORS:
    118 total points scored (16.9 ppg avg.)

    INDOORS:
    249 total points scored (27.6 ppg avg)

    Our offense sputters outside.

    Why?

    rams sked-path to the playoffs
    by general counsel
    We have 4 wins. Assume it takes 10 to get in. We have 10 gets left, meaning realistically, we need to win 6. Where do those six come from?

    Answer. Home vs kc, home vs ariz, home vs whiners, road vs oakland, home vs washington and road vs minny.

    Probable Losses. At sandiego, at seattle.

    We have a decent shot- at carolina and home vs. the bears

    In the "we have a decent shot" category, both of those could easily be losses.

    As i see it, given the second half collapse vs seattle and the loss to the whiners, we can certainly still make the playoffs, but we have virtually no margain for error at this point. No more mulligans. The oakland game scares the heck out of me, its the ultimate trap game. A terrible team, with us on the road, will we be up and ready to play? I dont think we should anticipate that 9-7 will get us in. Its not impossible, but not likely either. Thus, we cant even begin to think about the impact of a loss to either a sf, ariz or oakland at this point.

    I think it will all come down to those last two weeks and with wins vs washington and minny i think we get in.

    The game with the most upside of course is at seattle, because if we can find a way to win that game, all of this changes and we are right back in the hunt to win the west. If we lose that game, its wild card or bust in all liklihood, even if we wind up at 11-5 since they will hold the tiebreaker.

    I dont care how good the bears are, i think we have a shot against anyone playing at home. The game is also several weeks away and there is no telling the injury status of the teams at that point.

    When you break down the sked like this, you see why those early season games against lousy teams like detroit and green bay were must wins. People say "its early in the season there is plenty of football left." Sure there is, but there are only 16 games and you have to be realistic about your chances on the road, especially against the tough teams.

    Consistency is the key in the nfl and if you want to be a playoff team, you have to be solid, you cant play just to the level of your competition and you HAVE to put teams away when you have the chance, especially quality teams, and that is something we failed to do last sunday and it bit us in the butt.

    ramming speed to all

    What "is" going to be acceptable?
    by laram0
    As far as Headcoach Scott Linehan goes. How many wins do we the fans need to see in the first half of the 2008 season before we start calling for his head?
    Of course taking into consideration the difficult schedule we have for the first half of the season.

    @ Philadelphia
    vs. Giants
    @ Seattle
    vs. Buffalo
    @ Washington
    vs. Dallas
    @ New England
    vs. Arizona
