  • Lions win!

    Well at least they won't be getting their first win, as many predicted, against us. Now the only topic will be when are we getting our first for 2009. So then to open up this thread, who will we be getting our first win against?

    Maybe Jacksonville or Houston? I don't see us beating Singletary. Only reason I say Jags is because we seem to have their number.
    LA RAMMER

    It's Jim not Chris

    Re: Lions win!

    We're winning if Boller starts next sunday against the Niners.

    WE need to win that game. I have a lot of Niner fan friends who are already calling an early victory against us. What a better way to ruin the Niners season than a Rams victory.

      Re: Lions win!

      Rams now have the longest losing streak in the NFL, 13. :disapointed:

      A Rams win in San Fran against an improved niners team would be a major upset, lets realistic.

            I live in D.C. and I am so sick of the Redskin fans, so this is almost as good as a Rams win

              I live in SF & the only thing that kept me from running out of the bar and either throwing myself or a Whiner fan into traffic was the horrified silence that fell after Favre's miracle TD. It's the little things that keep you going. LOL.

              Yes, we COULD be 3-0 which is exactly why we need to hang tight. Obviously, the turnovers and key injuries doomed us today but there was a lot of good out there as well.

              Let's hope The Bears and Colts can keep the NFCW gap from widening too much before the turnaround comes.

              We knew coming into this that depth and youthful mistakes were going to be problems.As long as SJ is on the field, this scrappy but mistake-prone team stands a chance against anybody,imo.

                Samurai Mike is drooling at the thought of Boller and his inherent accuracy problems. Pick Six anyone?

                  That game was awesome at the end. That's why I love Favre.

                  Let's just cross our fingers that Robinson can get back on the field by next week. We need him catching balls if we stand a chace next week.

                    Re: Lions win!

                    I cringed at the Lions win today. I'm thinking the Rams will be the "New Lions", as I can see the Rams losing streak going beyond 19, with ease. I don't understand the thoughts that "we could be 3-0." We are what we are, 0-3. We could possibly be 1-2, with a win in DC within our reach if not for Avery, but we've been blown out in 2 of 3 contests so far. There's just not enough talent on this team to compete, and what talent we have is getting hurt. I'm afraid it's going to be a long, cold, season.

                    You know your team is in trouble when your best receiver now is a fat, unheard of TE (Fells), and your CB's can't cover anyone for more than two seconds because your front four can't put any pressure on the opposing QB. Every team the Packers have faced until today has gotten to the QB with ease. The Rams? Not your average team.

                    I predicted a 5-win season early on, but I'm thinking I'd feel really good right now if we can even achieve that. This team is showing lots of energy early on, and their defense is keeping them in the game, at least until the third quarter. But as the loses continue to pile on, how long will that effort last? This team, and it's fans, will be tested this year.

                      The way the Rams have been playing, Detroit might win another game. The Rams are now on a 13 games losing streak.

                        I think the rams can win next week, gore will be out for 2 weeks at best. Shaun hill is waiting to be picked by OJ. SJAX is itching for a few td's by this point. I like our chances.

                          NO we cant what are you thinking?!!

                          This team cannot compete with ANYBODY at this point, and quite frankly, it sucks because I expected much better from this whole team. I dont like our chances at all in this game.

                          As a matter of fact, we wont win a game this year.

                            rNemesis is not a positive thinker at all... I think we have a tough week ahead of us to get everyone prepped on their positions and roles against the Niners.

                            I know Singletary will not take this game lightly and not give the impression that we're a bunch of roll-overs. So we must step up and keep improving everyday.

                              Because its the truth mcknight. EVERY other NFL team has talent on both sides of the ball in at least some of the positions and we have very little. Only S Jax. We have a LONG way to go. What gives you or any one else the remote impression that we can beat the *****, with the way they played this season and last week even though they lost a heartbreaker. Cant beat the seahawks, niners, or cardinals. Cant beat the titans, jaguars, texans or colts. Cant beat the packers, lions, bears, or vikings. and even though we are not playing them this year, we cant beat anyone else in this league except maybe Cleveland.

                              It's not always about being positive its about being truthful and facing the FACTS, not opinions. Its the harsh truth though. wouldnt you agree?

                              We are lacking at a lot of positions needed to make a team be successful. What makes me the sickest is the offensive line and how we put so much emphasis on that this year and still nothing.:mad:

                                OK. I did the numbers again.

                                Since all I care about is the Rams, this is about their only threat in getting the #1 overall pick, the Lions.

                                Now all this is moot if the Rams lose next week against the Niners, the Rams obviously get the coveted pick.

                                But some people are wondering what happens if the Rams win and the Lions lose. Then it comes down to opponents SOS.

                                The easiest way to look at opponents SOS is by counting opponents wins since the denominator is the same for both teams, total games played, which is 16 games X 16 opponents = 256 total games when the season is completed.

                                Currently the Lions are in the lead because their opponents SOS is 122 wins, while the Rams opponents SOS is 125. But the Rams automatically close the gap by one whether the Vikings or Bears win tonight since the Lions played each of them twice and the Rams played them once each. That will put the SOS at Lions=124 to Rams=126, going into the final week.

                                Since the Rams must win and the Lions must lose next week for the SOS to matter, that will actually tie up the SOS at 127 each because we are each playing division opponents and a win by them is bad for SOS purposes.

                                This means that the baseline is tied at 127 opponents SOS for the Rams and Lions and the deciding factor will then be the remaining opponents wins in the last week.

                                Here it comes down to 8 games that matter, the rest are irrelevant (assuming the Rams win and the Lions lose):
                                Indianapolis at Buffalo
                                Jacksonville at Cleveland
                                New England at Houston
                                Pittsburgh at Miami
                                NY Giants at Minnesota
                                Cincinnati at NY Jets
                                Green Bay at Arizona
                                Baltimore at Oakland

                                We want Buffalo, Cleveland, NE, Pitt, Minny, Cinn, GB, and Balt to win. The big games are Jacksonville at Cleveland, and Green Bay at Arizona. They count for 2 wins each.

                                To me the SOS looks like about 50-50 either way between the Rams and the Lions. We may have a slight edge if you assume the favorites winning.

                                We could actually beat the Niners and still have a good shot at the #1 pick. So, a lot of things have to go wrong to lose the pick, it's well over 90% in the Rams favor.

                                Lions Favored By 3 Over Rams

                                NFL Picks Week 5: Detroit Lions Favored Over St. Louis Rams by Three
                                By Jimmy Boyd (Analyst) on October 8, 2010


                                The Detroit Lions will try to earn their first victory of the season when they host the 2-2 St. Louis Rams in Sunday’s Week 5 contest. NFL odds makers have given Detroit the edge, too, listing the Lions as a three-point favorite with the total set at 42.5.

                                The Lions and Rams, which combined for only three wins in 2009, have made strides in 2010, but St. Louis’ strides can be seen in the win column. In fact, the Rams have a chance to win three straight games for the first times in four years Sunday.

                                St. Louis finished with a 1-15 record last season, but it is worth noting that its lone win came at Detroit. Led by Stephen Jackson’s 149 rushing yards, the Rams posted a 17-10 victory over the Lions.

                                Jackson, who has totaled 312 yards from scrimmage in two career games against Detroit, could be the key to another St. Louis win. After all, Detroit ranks 25th in the league in rushing defense, allowing 134.5 yards per game on the ground.

                                Fortunately for St. Louis, teams cannot simply stack the line of scrimmage to stop Jackson and expect to win anymore. That all changed when the Rams made former Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford their No. 1 draft pick last spring.

                                After a pair of narrow defeats to Arizona and Oakland, Bradford has led the Rams to blowout wins over Washington and Seattle, while throwing for an average of 262 yards in those games.

                                Defensively, St. Louis continues to give up a lot of yards, but it has transformed into a big play unit. The Rams have already come up with 10 takeaways, tied for fifth most in the NFL.

                                Taking a look at things from a betting perspective, Rams backers will like to know that their team is a perfect 4-0 against the spread in its last four road games as an underdog of three or fewer points.

                                While the Lions are off to an 0-4 start, they feel like they could easily be 3-1. The Lions, who are now just 2-34 in their last 36 games, have losses of five, three, and two points this season.

                                The Lions fell 28-26 at Green Bay last week to a team that many feel can win the Super Bowl. The Lions of two years ago may have packed it in when they were down 28-14 in the third quarter. This Lions team has shown that it won’t say die.

                                Despite playing without starting quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was injured on a hit by Chicago’s Julius Peppers in the season opener, the Detroit offense has impressed. With backup quarterback Shaun Hill under center, Detroit has averaged 401.3 yards of offense the last three weeks.

                                Hill has even built some nice chemistry with star wideout Calvin Johnson, who was on the receiving end of both of his touchdown passes last week.

                                The key to finally getting in the win column will be limiting...

                                DETROIT (AP)—Somebody’s got to win, right?

                                Detroit, which has one victory since enduring the NFL’s first 0-16 season, is hosting the winless St. Louis Rams, who might have their best shot to avoid joining the Lions in league infamy, in an oddly intriguing game.

                                “Both of us are hungry for a win,” Lions linebacker Julian Peterson(notes) said.

                                Starving, really.

                                The Lions quietly slipped out of the national watch of terrible teams when they finally won a game in Week 3, snapping a 19-game losing streak and ending talk about the possible pursuit of Tampa Bay’s league-record 26-game skid.

                                Detroit hasn’t won since beating Washington, though, and its 2-28 mark since the middle of 2007 matches the worst 30-game record in league history.

                                The Rams are winless through seven games and if they don’t beat the Lions, they might be bad enough to replicate Detroit’s unenviable achievement with an 0-16 year and match the Buccaneers’ mark for futility set during the 1976-77 seasons.

                                Detroit running back Kevin Smith figures the Rams are looking at the matchup as their week to finally win.

                                “If I’m St. Louis, I’m saying, `OK, you’ve got a 1-5 Lions team that went through our situation last year, let’s try to get a jump start on our season with a win versus the Lions,”’ Smith said. “You have to anticipate that’s what they’re thinking.”

                                Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo insisted that’s not the case.

                                “We don’t go there,” Spagnuolo said.

                                The message has sunk in with his players.

                                “Records in the NFL mean very little,” quarterback Marc Bulger said. “Arizona was 9-7 last year and I don’t think anyone gave them a chance of going to the Super Bowl. You treat every week like it’s own Super Bowl and I think that’s what coach is trying to preach to us.”

                                The Lions have a chance to get their top two players back on offense— receiver Calvin Johnson and quarterback Matthew Stafford—after both missed games with injured right knees.

                                “Calvin obviously changes the game,” Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. “He changes not only our offense, but he changes the way defenses play.

                                “The strides that Matt had made early in the season, he needs to be able to pick that back up again.”

                                Stafford, the No. 1 pick in the draft, said he learned something while he was relegated to standing on the sideline.

                                “It was tough watching, I don’t really like it,” he said. “You feel like you learn more playing than you do just sitting there watching because you’re so much more in tune.”

                                The Rams are out of sorts on both sides of the ball, especially when they have it inside opponents’ 20. They have scored on just half of their...

                                I'm having a hard time with this game. Both the Rams and the Lions have been inconsistent. Making matters more difficult, both teams have key players (Rams: Quinn, Brockers, Hayes/Lions: Riddick, Ebron, Boldin, Tomlinson) who are questionable.

                                Still, I'm optimistic. I think the Rams can move the ball on the Lions, and if they can pressure Matthew Stafford, I think they can keep the Lions' offense in check.

                                My pick:

                                Los Angeles Rams 24
                                Detroit Lions 20
