  • How will the Rest of the Season play out?

    After the Rams 0-4 start there dosent seem to be much promise with many of the upcoming games. I think that the Rams will end the season
    3-13 or 4-12. With wins coming against. The Jaguars, The Lions, The Seahawks, and the Cardinals. How do you think the Rams season will play out?

    I impulsively went with 2-5 just because it wasn't as extreme as the other answers. I'd like to think they'll do better than 1-15.

      At this point, I don't really see us winning a game and we were fortunate enough to win two last year, honestly. And I'm not saying that as a pessimist, I just truthfully can't really see us winning a game. Idealistically I'd like to see the Rams play better and better each game and late November, early December see a lot of progress, see the players understanding the system better (especially on Offense). We got cursed with a difficult schedule, and it's damn unfair given the record we had last year.

      Again, don't take this the wrong way. It's just my opinion and I hope I'm dead wrong.
      Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

        I'd say two to five. Marc Bulger comes back and gets things rolling. We win a few close ones here and there.

          it's only a quarter through the season, and the worst teams are yet to come. we've had a chance through 3 quarters even against good teams, i think it will turn around a little bit and we'll have a handful of wins (4 or 5) by the end of the season.

            well its hard to predict where our first win will come from....the obvious one would be to say against the Lions..but maybe before then.
            i do think tho that as soon as our 1st win happens i think from that point on we will start to win more..we just gotta hope we dont leave that 1st win till the last game of the season.

            to quote that God among men for every Raiders hater Al Davis... "Just Win Baby"!!!

              I was original rooting in the first few weeks for the Rams to go 6-10 or 7-9 but I just don't see it happening. That would be huge for this franchise if that happened but given the state of things i'll even make a long shot for 5-11. I really hope we go 5-11 which is more than we can expect and just how humilating it would be if we went 2-14 and just how much we don't deserve that. We have as a core a team that is capable of wins but just mistakes, issues and some lack of talent prevents us from that. If Boller Or Marc has some good games and the offense gets going I hope we hit 5 wins at least.

              I wont go as far to say we wont win any games. No we are much better than that. Our team is better than the 08 Lions in many ways the had a horrific defense and a struggling offense. Ours is a decent developing defense and a problem filled offense but if we can fix some things our offense may score some points and win us some games.

                IF our offensive line can get their **** together and give our starting QB some time to throw (no matter who it is) we have a shot at winning about 5 games. i think our defense has played good in spots but they are on the field way too long. i heard on the radio that rush limbaugh was going to buy the rams? they said it leaked out and wasn't supposed to. forgive me if somebody else posted this or if i am way off base here. it's just what i heard this morning while driving around in my "little red corvette"!:ram:

                  Im guna go with 5-11

                  W @ DET 21-10
                  W NO 23-24
                  W SEA 13-17
                  W HOU 7-21
                  W SF 10-13

                  I think getting a win before the bye will build our momentum vs. the Saints and we upset them. Then i think we see plenty of improvement down the stretch with our Offense holding the ball and getting a few 1st downs so our D isnt so tired down the stretch. And our D comes alive the last few games and we get most of our wins at home. Oh yea we beat the 9ers and take them out of the playoffs with that win.

                    Prior to the season starting I thought 5-11 sounded good. But upon further review, more likely 3-13 with a few breaks.

                      I think we will be a 3 win team this year. After checking our schedule, the only remaining teams I think we can beat are Jacksonville, Detroit, and Seattle (the second time around). A lot of rebuilding to do. I think three wins may be considered a "success" for us at this point.

                        Re: How will the Rest of the Season play out?

                        We can beat Houston and Detroit. That's all. I can't believe you guys who think we'll beat the Saints! Brees will have 400+ yards against our poor secondary!

                        It's not the end of the world. We need a franchise QB. Getting a high draft pick will solve that problem. We could get Bradford or McCoy. OR we could trade our top pick to somebody who wants said players for multiple picks and stick with Marc for another year. Maybe trade for another QB, depending on who's available.

                        We're rebuilding. And the draft is the way you do that. Keep your heads up! Only winning a couple of games this year wont be the end of the world.

                          Boy I hate to be Negative Nancy, but guys........we might go 0-16. I don't know that we can string together 4 quarters w/o killing ourselves with rookie (in general, not literal 1st year players) mistakes and silly penalties.

                          The Jags & Lions on the road.
                          The Hawks & Texans at home.

                          Those are the only 4 games that I feel even bears a good possibility of winning. And speaking "realistically" (which is a silly term when speculating), we may only get 1 of those.

                          But hey, we gain experience every day; we sort the wheat from the chaff every day. And the older I get, the more I realize that next season isn't that far away.
                          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                            Hard to say with any certainty. I'll aim 2-5 at this point. We drew a short straw with the schedule really. NFC north is tough, I think it's a fair guess that 3 of those teams will end up with at least 10 wins. AFC south has a lot of talent. There are some teams underachieving though (besides our beloved Rams), so I wouldn't be shocked to see us swing an upset or two.
                            The Cards haven't been firing on Superbowl cylinders at all, the Titans have been looking pretty anemic on offense despite super human efforts by Chris Johnson and we've always got the shaky looking Seagulls. Things are looking rough, but things definately aren't over.

                              I've predicited 5 wins all along and I'm not changing my prediction until that number is mathematically eliminated.

                              GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!

                                There are a lot of us here that have been long time fans. And, there are those that have been recent fans. I am not trying to down play our recent brethren, but you can not expect 1999-2000 to happen over and over again.

                                As anyone can tell you, the NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" league. But along with that comes a rebuilding time. The RAMS are in that time.

                                I hope that we have the pieces in place so that next year we are competative, but we have to wait and see. For right now, I will sit and watch and cheer for a win each week.

                                But we are done for this season.

                                The season so far, is it a success?
                                by Varg6
                                We are rebuilding. Who doesn't know that?

                                I've said it before and I'll say it again, each week regardless of win or loss I want to see progress. What we saw yesterday was progress. Do I want to win every game? Of course, but we can't expect that just yet. However, I know we are headed down the right path and the beautiful thing is, we are young. These guys are just going to get better with more experience.

                                I think we are finally developing that team chemistry we've desperately needed for years. I'm so proud of these guys and I feel like if we play like we did on Sunday, we can beat just about any team in the NFL. I don't expect us to go 8-8 but honestly I wouldn't be too shocked if we got on a roll and achieved that record.

                                Going back to the thread's question, is the season a success so far? On paper it isn't, but progress wise, absolutely.

                                I wish i knew how to post a poll. 4 or less. 5-6. 7-8. More than 8. I suspect that we have one real good surge in us and will win 5-6 (close to .500 from now to the end of the year), which may be optimistic.

                                I don't really know how to say this
                                by VegasRam
                                So I'll just say it, (with lots of disclaimers to follow;)).

                                I think our first game this year is absolutely HUGE!

                                If we win that game, (no matter how), it is going to go a long way towards INSTANTLY changing the mindset of our entire team. They have beat us eight straight, (some resoundingly and some squeakers), but eight nonetheless.

                                We are getting no respect, (and don't deserve it); Seattle is, and is getting a pass for last year due to injuries, (which we never did, but that's yesterday's news), and it's on the road against (in my mind now), our most hated rival.

                                I would go so far as to say, if we win, we are looking at a guaranteed 9 wins, and maybe more.

                                (Disclaimer 1): If we lose, we'll win the predicted 5-6 games, which I really am OK with, given the state of the team when Spags took over.

                                But I can just see Spags quietly, in his own intense way, telling the team after the game; "See...! See what happens when you focus and play with intensity, when you play as a team, when you pay attention to the little things, when you trust and believe in each other?"

                                (Disclaimer 2) Again, if the Rams play well and lose, but can walk off the field with their heads up, and leave the Seahawks thinking, "those were not the Rams we've played the last 4 years", I'll be fine, and in no way will think the season's history.

                                It's just that (IMO) winning would have an incredible impact on the team's attitude...

                       that would stay with the team the whole year, and one that Spags could point to the whole season and say, "Remember opening day, on the road, against our fiercest rival, in a hostile environment...?"
