    Is there any chance?
    by sosa39rams
    I am going to try and predict the outcome of the 2010-2011 season for the Rams.

    Week 1: Arizona Cardinals- It will be a tough game. Close until the 4th quarter, but I think the rams pull away with a last second win. (1-0).

    Week 2: Oakland Raiders- With the new Raiders, and in there loud and crazy stadium, I think the raiders sneak a close win past us. (1-1).

    Week 3: Washington Redksins- With the addition of McNabb and a change in the defense, I feel like the rams may have some trouble winning. (1-2).

    Week 4: Seattle Seahawks- They seen a lot of change this season. We will be playing home so i predict we take this one. (2-2).

    Week 5: Detroit Lions- Had a close game last year, and we pulled it off. I think we repeat that performance. (3-2).

    Week 6: San Diego Chargers- A great team, with the pieces for a serious superbowl run, which will not be stopped by us. (3-3).

    Week 7: Tampa Bay Bucaneers- Also a rebuilding team, but they just sneak a tiny win by us. (3-4).

    Week 8: Carolina Panthers- They have too strong of a running game for us to compete with. (3-5).

    Week 9: BYE WEEK.

    Week 10: San Francisco *****- A team that we wont be able to compete with here at this time of year. (3-6).

    Week 11: Atlanta Falcons- A team a little to far ahead of us. (3-7).

    Week 12: Denver Broncos- This team has lost too many key players, which is why I think we win big. (4-7).

    Week 13: Arizona Cardinals- We get blown out this game. They get revenge on our first win. (4-8).

    Week 14: New Orleans Saints- They win in OT by a FG. (4-9).

    Week 15: Kansas City- A rebuilding team that are in the middle of no where, we win. (5-9).

    Week 16: San Francisco *****- Pull of a close win over the rams. (5-10).

    Week 17: Seattle Seahawks- The rams win thanks to a beastly defensive performance. (6-10)

    What do you guys think?

    Where do you see the Rams standing when the bye week comes?
    by Nick
    Can we run the four-game table, or will the table run us?
    5-2; It's streak time, baby! We're takin' the West and we'll do it on the road!
    4-3; Outside of Seattle, we shouldn't have many problems before the bye.
    3-4; Mediocre team, mediocre results. We can't expect to win games the way we've been playing.
    2-5; We've struggled for three games, we'll keep struggling.
    1-6; Are you kidding me? This team, win? We can't even beat the Saints!

    Two will do, but which two? (or, how this week could be HUGE)
    by AvengerRam_old
    I'm going to go out on a limb here (not much of a limb, mind you) and predict that Seattle will lose at least two of their last four:

    @Vikings (they'll get crushed)
    @Jets (they should be beat)
    Arizona (they'll win)
    Atlanta (probably a win, but...)

    If this is correct, two more wins will give the Rams the NFC West crown and the #4 seed in the playoffs.

    Looking at the schedule, the Rams have one game they should definitely win (@Arizona), one game that they should have a pretty good shot at winning (home vs. a Jet team that will probably be locked in to its playoff spot), one game they probably won't win (Eagles), and this week's game @ Carolina.

    The odds are against the Rams this week with Bulger out and both Faulk and Jackson nursing sore knees. Then again, if they can just find a way to protect Chandler, the Rams receivers should have success.

    A win this week really puts the Rams in the driver's seat for the division title. If the Rams essentially need only one more win after this week, and have two home games and a game at the Cardinals to get that one win, I like their chances.

    Stay tuned.

    Which "mark it as a loss" game are the Rams most likely to win this year?
    by AvengerRam_old
    When we look at the schedule, there are some games that we think the Rams should win, some games that are more of a toss-up, and some that most would expect the Rams to lose.

    Nonetheless, history tells us that there are often upsets. Last year it was the Saints. The year before, the Chargers.

    So which of the "unwinnable" games do you think could be the most likely "upset special" this year?
    Week 1: @ Detroit
    Week 7: Green Bay
    Week 8: New England (@ London)
    Week 10: @ San Francisco
    None of the above.

    Looking ahead to the 2nd Quarter of the Season
    by AvengerRam
    When we looked at the schedule, the Rams had what appeared to be some favorable match-ups in the first four games. The Rams were able to take advantage of this schedule, and now sit at 3-1.

    While things change from week-to-week as teams develop and players go down to injury, here's how I see the next four games:

    Week 5: Seattle
    This is a big game, as the Seahawks are likely the team the Rams will have to beat to win the NFC West. We've had success against them in recent years, and their offense (particularly their OL) is struggling. But, make no mistake, they still have one of the top defenses in football. I think the Rams can live with a few 3 and outs this week. What they can't allow are turnovers (that and... don't lose contain against Russell Wilson).

    Week 6: @Jacksonville
    I'll be there to watch the Rams take on one of the biggest Jeckyll and Hyde teams in the NFL. The Rams' D will need to force Blake Bortles into mistakes, and the OL will have to hold its own against a talented front 7.

    Week 7: Arizona (London)
    The Cardinals are vulnerable, as the loss of David Johnson has slowed their offense. I think the Rams can outscore the Cardinals if it becomes a track meet. This could be a chance to take a division opponent out of the West race fairly early in the season.

    Week 9 (after bye): @ New York Giants
    The Giants seem like a team that the Rams should have success against, given their poor OL play, weak running game, and QB who can be mistake prone. If they were matching up this week, I'd feel pretty confident in a Rams' win. We'll see how things are going come November.

    All in all, I think this is a manageable schedule. All four games are entirely winnable, and I think its reasonable to hope for another 3-1 quarter. If the Rams can get to the halfway point of the season with a 6-2 record, they're going to be playing some meaningful games in December.
