  • Looking Like a Super Bowl Team

    Now that's more like it! That's the kind of game they used to play during their run to get those pretty rings. Touchdown on the opening run, no settling for any silly fieldgoal. I knew right then we were on our way to something sweet!

    Looks like Warner got those cobwebs out. He was in true form today. I couldn't be more proud if I were his mother. (I'm thinking his thumb is feeling better.)

    Someone still needs to have a little chat with Fletcher about the price of personal fouls, but he made up for that nicely with the sack and forced fumble that McLeon scooped up.

    The local Domino's Pizza last year had a touchdown takedown deal where you could get a dollar off per touchdown the next day. If that deal is still good, that's $6 off of any pizza tomorrow. WooHoo! (I'm more excited about the fact that it represents 6 touchdowns though!)

    Kinda glad late in 1st quarter that Faulk had stuck around Warner to try and block a defender so he could grab that Warner fumble, but can't help wondering if that wouldn't have happened if he'd taken off to receive a pass instead. Hmm. Doesn't matter, it all worked out in the end, even after Baker's punt was blocked.

    A few tense moments, but once they put some distance between them and the Fins on the scoreboard those subsided. Almost thought on Miami's last possession that the Rams were gonna let them Have a touchdown out of charity. Then Fletcher intercepts it in the EZ (another redeeming moment) with only a few seconds left! Leave it to the Rams. Keep us on our seats to the very end.

      we're gelling, that's great, next week should be another shilacking on MNF.

      I had to listen to it on the internet while i watching my other team, the Bills, get the crap kicked out of them.

      Don't worry guitarboy, i'm always nervous whenever they take the field, and the words that come out of my mouth aren't always that great. My mom always calls me up and says, The Rams Won! and i'm like, yeah but they coulda played better!

      We're definitely solid and with the D...the rams won't be watching the SB from their homes ;) :p

        What an excellent game – my prediction of 56 – 0 was a little off, but not by much!!!

         1st drive of the game – perfection
         1st defensive stand – excellent
         Penalties – not good – let the Fins into the game
         3rd & goal stand – superb (with a little luck thrown in)
         Drive after the fumble – SWEET
         4th & 1 – Warner FANTASTIC!
         99 yard drive – a thing of beauty
         Fletcher INT – bend but don’t break ‘D'
         Controlling the ball and the clock – priceless!

        GO RAMS GO !!!!!!!!
        Always a Rams Fan............

          Hey Ram3057, that's a neat game analysis! :cool: Great adjectives and, yes, the bottom line --though made up of all the previous strengths-- IS priceless!

          Keep that 56-0 Rams W prediction active for this coming MNF @ Detroit. You never know. ;)

          GO RAMS!!!

            Still plenty to learn.....

            Az Hakim looking upfield before he catches the punt.

            Warner forcing two passes early in the game that could easily have been intercepted.

            Martz still seemingly clueless about conserving timeouts.

            The Rams outplayed the Saints last night but if they continue to display poor game management and decisions in pressure situations then they are ripe for a playoff upset. Warner seemed to make the most progress as his passes after the early mistkaes were crisp and on the mark. He even tucked the ball away a few times and took the sack instead of throwing up potential INTs.

            The defense was STELLAR as they swarmed Brooks and did not let up till after the whistle.

            You may think I'm nit-picking but I want the Rams to win another Super Bowl.

            They have three games left to get their act together. The opponents are all second-tier teams but the Rams should concentrate on possession, minimizing penalties, time management and NO FREAKING TURNOVERS while they secure HFA.

            Santonio Holmes foot didn't touch !
            by LARAM
            Am I the only one that doesn't think, Santonio Holmes's foot touched on that touchdown catch. I saw it from couple of angles and the way I saw it:

            One foot touches, no question, but the second foot never touched. The toe on the second foot looked to be about 2 inches shy of the turf, quite possibly his toe got hung up on the cleets of his first foot........Did anyone see or notice this, am I the only one in America that saw this.

            Not really sure that was the right call on the last Kurt Warner pass attempt either. It looked like a failed pass attempt to me...... Sort of looked like Kurt muscled his way through the swat and actually got the pass off. It looked like it should have been called a incomplete pass to me. Anyone agree with me on any of these two calls?

            Oh well......doesn't really bother me one way or the other, But maybe I'm being a little impartial to Kurt .

            Rams vs NE
            by jdpbmo
            Man o' man, that was a good game. First award goes to the defense for doing their thing. Right now they are the glue that is holding this team together and on top. I love to watch that offense and they are something else, when the interceptions and fumbles are avoided. That point still bothers me, but hey you can't throw too many stones at 8-1. I would really like to see them stick it to TB and NO. I don't think they will have much trouble with TB, but the NO game will be tough. I hope Brooks throws some interceptions then takes off to tackle the man so we can plow him like they did Warner in the dome. I thought our special teams did an excellent job. Their crowd was really into the game and Warner and company did a great job of neutralizing them by scoring. I also liked the way we held the ball at the end of the game by a stiff does of Faulk and Warner. Faulk is amazing, as a player, as a person, as a role model. I thought Warner threw the ball better last night, at least it looked like the thumb didn't affect him as much. I think when they got that first down late with the little flare to Faulk that is the first time I have seen Martz show emotion. Hell, even when he's on someone he seems cool and composed. I didn't understand the timeout with a few seconds left in the 3rd quarter? Not much else, just great job again and a wonderful team effort.:angryram:

            If I could crawl through the phone line I'd grab this poor excuse of a human being by his tie and head butt him until he admitted that all he is capable of writing is tabloid bile.

            Kurt Warner was awful before breaking his pinkie, so how good will he be upon his return?
            Kurt Warner
            So what if his passing rating is a lifetime 107.0, or whatever? Who even knows what that means? I follow the NFL, know the history of it, have studied it loosely, and I don't know what it means. If it means the likes of Warner, his current nemesis Marc Bulger and Jim Zorn are among the 10 best quarterbacks ever to play, then maybe the NFL quarterback rating is the real Fraud here.

            There's plenty of fraud left for Warner. The purist would point out Warner amassed big stats by being the happy beneficiary of a 1970s secret experiment of having pronghorn antelope, impala and bighorn sheep recombinant DNA injected into the ovum of the mothers of men named Holt, Bruce, Hakim, Proehl, Faulk and Canidate. Once assembled in St. Louis, they ran crazy, Martzian pass routes, catching Warner's passes, then using them like relay batons, staging a track meet in always perfect conditions on an artificial surface Jesse Owens would've run an 8.3 on. Under those terms, my grandmother would have a rating of 100.3, and she's dead. Warner's "rating" is the best of all time. Bulger's rating of 106.7 is second-best all time, yet he's only played five games.

            Fact or Fraud?

            A purist would point out that of the three biggest games of Warner's career, he won the first two, including an 11-6 squeaker over Tampa Bay in the 2000 NFC Championship Game. Eleven whole points, on that fast track, with that menagerie! Purists in Tampa point out Proehl bailed out Warner with a great end zone catch. (Tampa purists wonder if it was a catch at all, and say if it was a catch, then it surely was a catch Bert Emanuel made when they were driving for the winning TD a few minutes later; and yet Shaun King is nobody's Legend. Except at Tulane, where they still think highly of him, for some reason.)

            In that year's Super Bowl against Tennessee, the Volunteer State purists say the Rams only won the game when Warner heaved up a prayer with less than two minutes left that the impalalike Bruce waited on for days to come down, then cut back underneath coverage, then cut back around a dazed safety Anthony Dorsett to complete the play. Warner got MVP for that?

            But then, of course, Steve McNair wasn't as fortunate, and the Titans came up a yard short. This gave Dick Vermeil a Super Bowl ring after 20 years of walking in the wilderness, and set in motion his departure from St. Louis, then his arrival in Kansas City, with Trent Green, a QB who'd legitimately beaten out Warner, but who then lost his job because of...

            Game Talk?
            by MsWistRAM
            I don't see anything about the Hall of Fame game. So exactly what is everyone looking for in this and the other forums on the games? Who's supposed to do the reporting? How can I talk about it if I don't know what to say? Someone get this ball rolling.
