  • OMG, something positive!

    Anyone else notice that we're getting better every week? Our defense is fairly solid and the offense was better today. We actually had a lead through most of the day, and came down the field on a critical two minute offense drive. We might not have won, but this was by far our closest game yet this season. Anyone else out there think that the sky might not be falling?

    I will agree with you Teke, much good going on but it is still outweighed by the bad,so when they get that turned around it will lead to some wins.

      Did you forget who we played today? Look at the other games the Rams have played. They got blown out, and wait until Indy next week.

        No, I didn't forget who we played today, but the point is still valid. We played better today than any game yet this season. Next week against Indy will possibly be another loss, yes, even most likely, but we won't know until we play. Any team, even this one, can win any given Sunday.

          I just hope Spags can keep these guys believing a loss like this hurts and when you are still 0-6 for the year and 16 straight losses, you have not broken the culture of losing yet only wins can do that. At some point if this donít turn into some wins these guys can turn south on themselves.

            Teke i gotta agree with you regardless the competition. IMO the younger guys get better every game notably Clifton Ryan, Chris Long, James Lauranatis, Keenan Burton, Fells, Avery (when healthy) and Craig Dahl. Vets like Hall, Little, and OJ remain consistently good and are play makers on our defense.

            The O-line miles better than the San Fran Game IMO they have really stepped it up more than anyone on the team. 2 Flukey sacks to the vikings and only 1 this week have resulted in better QB play.

              Why bother spewing this negativity. Yeah they got blown out a few times. So what. Let's look at what the team is doing. They're making stupid turnovers & mental mistakes. Usually when they can least afford too. Last year they just plain quit.

              I think Tek is right on with a positive observation.

              Also, they were on the road today were they not? They may not beat Indy, but I bet they continue to show more heart than Tennessee did today. That will be my line for the remainder of the season, at least were not Tennessee.

                Here's a fun little stat:

                In the Chicago/Atlanta game, OP was flagged twice for a total of 15 yards. Barron? ONE penalty for 5 yards.

                  What constitutes improvement in the end? Are we better if we only lose 14 games this year?

                    I think most would agree the what constitutes as improvement this year is competing and fighting every game. In that area you cannot tell me that our rams have not improved this year.

                      They are getting better with each passing day. The defense looked good. But again, inconsistent calls on offense killed us.

                        The O is struggling to put up points, and struggling to stay on the field which is hurting the D in the long run. However, at least we managed to put up 20 points today

                          Our defense is better, no suprise there with spags. Our offense might actually be alot worse after all the injuries and general lack of depth in the first place this year. And the worst thing of all are the things not related to talent, such as mental errors.

                          The team will get better, I must hope, but I have not seen very much to make me think a turn around in the near or even moderately distance future.

                            The team is getting better every game. I am starting to believe in Spags. If we only had another receiver after Avery got injured - we would be talking about different game. I have noticed the offensive line is much improved. Also, when a player gets hurt - another steps in and looks solid. Couple more players on this team and we will be much better. How about Jackson on the last drive? I am very happy today and still think we can go 8-8 this season.

                              Are you kidding me? And who will these wins come against?

                                I would like to believe with the young team we have a win against a quality opponent (we are talking the reigning world champions) will be the kick in the pants we need to FINISH strong the rest of the season seeing as FINISH is the difference in us having a winning record thus far. They finished this one albeit as scary as it can get, can we start to make the finishes look easier????

                                I am so tired of this.
                                by RamsFanSam
                                Every game this season, the Rams have looked a little bit better. Our offense looked the best it has all year, Bulger led a two-minute offense that was reminiscent of days past, Amendola is giving our return game something it has been missing for years, and our defense is stepping it up, somewhat inconsistently, but still better than it has in the past two seasons.

                                We went into Jacksonville today with a desire to come out with a win. It came down to the last 7 seconds before we ended up going for a tie instead of a win. Spags played it safe for a chance to win instead of gambling and possibly losing. The decision to go for three may have been the wrong one (remember Carolina in the playoffs a few years ago?) but it gave our guys something they haven't had in a long time - hope.

                                So what am I tired of? I'm tired of the fans who are too busy whining about Bulger (who did a great job today), fans who are complaining about our defense (who actually did a decent job) to notice that we are getting better.

                                Yeah, let's trade our best player. That way, we can get a RB who runs like crap - because that's all that's left in free agency. Let's bench our QB - the one who knows the plays and is really showing that he can execute once again. That way, we can start someone who can't be consistent at throwing either completions or interceptions. Let's trash the whole team - after all, it's only been six weeks, and if they haven't won us a super bowl by now, they never will.

                                I'm not looking at the team through rose colored glasses. I'm being realistic. The Rams are bad - no doubt about it. But the Rams of week six are far better than the Rams of week one. I didn't expect a quick turnaround. Even Spags said it will take time. Anyone who thought we'd be an NFL powerhouse by now should at least try to be realistic.

                                Most of us on here thought we should have won today. I'm one of them. Anyone who is whining about the effort put forth by anyone on the team today needs to watch the game again, because the game I watched showed a Rams team that fought hard for a win. Had we won the coin toss in OT...we would have had that elusive "W".

                                For those of you who think whining about things will make you a good fan, or will change the team, I've got news for you.

                                It makes you look like a fair-weather fan, and the team isn't going to change the road they are on just because you think you know the way to go.

                                Right now, the Rams are the worst team in football. It is 2009 all over again. Despite massive efforts to re-tool the o-line, assemble a group of competant wide-outs, draft a franchise QB, obtain a new o-coordinator, this team still stinks. Anyone who is associated with this football team, from the owner to the players to the coaches to the fans should be completely embarrassed- as well as humiliated and totally pissed off.

                                Don't tell me about injuries. Indianapolis has lost Peyton Manning and they battled last week. Don't tell me about the hapless Chiefs. Their injury situation is worse than ours and they've battled tooth and nail on the road today vs. a San Diego team every bit as good as the Ravens. Don't tell me Tennessee. They beat the Ravens last week. Don't tell me Cincinnati. They have a win. And every team in our division has shown more than we have thus far.

                                Don't tell me about rebuilding. This is year three. No one expected a Super Bowl this season, but tangible progress was both expected and reasonable. We've seen neither thus far.

                                There is simply no excuse. We've regressed. At this rate, we'll be lucky to win 3-4 games. Every year is the same. You look for reasons to be positive, try not to be negative or disappointed and still get kicked in the teeth time and time again. It got old a long time ago. Down 27-0 at the half today. Horrendous. Games vs. GB, PItt, Dal, and NO to be played yet. We're awful.

                                The luster is starting to wear off Spags. This is a guy most of us were happy to have (myself included) and a guy who has prided himself on discipline & fundamental football and we've yet to see it at a time when it is absolutely necessary to have. The scary thing is that we should be better. You look at this team, and despite some obvious holes, we shouldn't be getting beaten by double digits every week and looking sloppy in the process. Either I and a lot of other people have overrated this team or the coaches need to do a better job.

                                I'm totally depressed. What can one reasonably look forward to on the heels of three dreadful performances-two of which were at home?

                                Where did the energy come from? Why didn't we run out of gas again? These guys finished the deal today. We were in it, somehow. We caused and caught some big breaks when we needed to, but we played the game today and didn't lay down or turn off the switch.

                                How could the team immediatly succeed with a new coach that was already on the coaching staff, and the defense play better in the bargain? What drama could have possibly been going on in the clubhouse? Will we ever know? Hhhhhmmmmmm.

                                by rNemesis
                                I know this is beating a dead horse, but after watching that 2nd half meltdown today, I am STILL not convinced that we can finish a football game effectively and show that everything is comfortable. When is this conservative, relax-we're-up-17-3- type of shell that our offense goes into in the 2nd half, going to stop? IT SUCKS and the coaching staff needs to get their act together, forget about this loss, and figure out how to beat Carolina next week, who, oh by the way, just beat the Niners earlier today. No chalk win there, either, friends.

                                Until we show that we can do this, we cannot be considered as taking that next step into becoming a good, solid team. The same goes for our INABILITY to win on the road. We were supposed to do that today, and we failed to do so. We are still a young, inexperienced, lacking offensive weapons team.

                                This is just so frustrating, but like I said, after the Detroit loss, we recovered. Now this???

                                All I am going to say is we BETTER, I mean BETTER recover, forget about Tampa, and go back home for Carolina and get a W. Blow them out of the water.

                                But my main point is this, and this goes out to the coaching staff for crying out loud: FINISH A FOOTBALL GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LEARN TO FIIIIIIINNNNNNNNIIIISSSHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
