  • For those upset with the time management at the end...

    ...Think of it this way: When was the last time a Rams game had you on the edge of your seat so late in the 4th? When was the last time the Rams were down like that, and you actually had confidence we could come back and win it?

    It didn't end our way, but I sure do miss those down to the wire moments.

    Go Rams

    what a great game. we played the best nfc team down to the wire. great game everyone. the rams did a good job moving the ball with no timeouts left. i just wish the last couple play we could have picked up bigger chunks or get out of bounds. getting put into a 4 and 1 is tough when you obivisouly cant spike it.

      I don't think we did a terrible job w/ time management. Was it perfect, of course not, but I think we did better than expected considering we had 2 minutes and 0 time outs

        Rams should have taken more shots at the endzone the final 2:00 min, Decent game against top ranked opponet, would have won if we could stop shooting ourselves in the foot! ( dropped passes, ST allowing opening 2nd half kick off return for TD, Offense stalling 3rd qtr & early 4th, staying Healthy (Burton), and as always the play calling, especially the last drive. Rams once again denied a very winnable game.
        Gotta appreciate the effort though. Spags seems to have this team starting to gel under the circumstances, things looks brighter for the Rams as they move forward.

          I totally agree. I was a little frustrated but that's because the win was in a reachable range. We could've won this game.

          But, it feels like a win today. I won't be cussing and swearing all day. We played the best of the best and almost beat them. Can't ask any more than a win.

          We are seeing improvements in all aspects of our team. Next week should be a good one!

            I was feeling pretty confident at the end honestly, it was great. I miss football like that, and that's why I'm not upset at the loss anymore, I was right after, but after it cools off... What a great game!

              Exactly. When the clock hit 0 I was a little grumpy.

              But after some crying and thought, I was happy. hahaha

                I don't think I have ever been this ok with a loss. It was great to see them driving for win at the end of the game. It reminded me of better days. I am actually happy that they played so well. It was a winnable game.

                  I don't think there was a problem with the time management, we moved down the field with no time outs and 2 mins left in the game and a depleted reciever corp that wasn't all that to begin with. I think Marc did the right thing dumping the ball of to Jax, he avoided a sack and he got the ball into the hands of the teams most productive player. There are way to many positives that came out of this game to get upset about coming up a little short against one of the best teams in the league. Let's be honest, how many of us thought we'd only lose by 5 points anyway.

                    Did anyone see the end of the colts/pats game? Peyton and crew scored 14 points in under 3 minutes. They actually understand clock management and how to score. It was pretty watching them do it.

                    I was wishing for Bruce to be back during those last two minutes. We need that receiver that is going to be waiting on the sidelines with the perfect tippy toe catch to stop the clock. Throwing to Jackson in the middle is not the answer when we have no time left. The rams offense needs to work on that 2 minute drill. I don't know how much is play calling and how much is on Bulger to make the right throw.

                    It sure was exciting though and I thought we could win.

                    It helps when you have a QB and receiver relationship like Peyton and Wayne do.

                      We had to work on actually being in the game with 2:00 left on the clock before working on the Two Minute Drill, im just happy the Rams were in with a shot with winning that late in the game against an unbeaten team.

                        Somehow I cannot help thinking that at this point in the rebuilding process, there probably is not much emphasis on (or practice of), the two-minute drill , (conciously or subconciously).

                        The only thing that really upset me was the KO return. I REALLY thought those days were behind us.

                        (And i want to read M. Franke's report - I SWEAR I saw a block in the back on that return).

                          Given how difficult it is, in theory, to score on a kickoff or punt return, I would bet just about anything that there is something illegal on almost every single one that scores ....

                            Head Coach Scott Linehan

                            September 17, 2007



                            (Opening Remarks)

                            “Claude Terrell does have a sore left thigh. It’s categorized as a bruise. He had an MRI today. We do not have any results from it, but we don’t anticipate anything other than that. Randy (McMichael) has a tight right hamstring that he pulled on the first catch of the game. He played with it, but it’s fairly sore today. Milford Brown did come out with a left ankle injury. Unless he has issues with it on Wednesday, as far as it being too sore to play on, we’ll assume he’s going to be okay. If he does have any problems at Wednesday’s practice we’ll MRI it, but he seemed to be getting better. Drew Bennett came out of the game okay. Pisa (Tinoisamoa) and Richie (Incognito) will be evaluated each practice this week as to how realistic they will be for being up this game. Both of them are still in question.”



                            (On DE Leonard Little)

                            “He has a sprained toe. He’s okay. He’s played with it, on and off throughout his career. He should be fine. I wouldn’t even anticipate him missing any time in practice.”



                            (On QB Marc Bulger)

                            “He just has sore ribs. He’s been hit a lot. It’s not just the line not blocking. We’ve been in some situations where we got third down and they (San Francisco) got free on a couple of their blitzes. He got a couple of them off, but he got hit on two. That’s a normal day’s work for a quarterback. I’d like to keep it to a minimum if we can. That’s going to be the key to our success in upcoming games.”



                            (On the game vs. San Francisco)

                            “It’s a similar story to the week before. We entered halftime with a lead. We came out of the blocks with the ball and we weren’t able to add to a six-point lead eventually. We had opportunities two weeks in a row to make it a two-score game, twice. Both times we turned it over. That will always come back to haunt you. I don’t know if it’s a lesson learned. We haven’t learned it yet. If we’re going to win these kinds of football games we’re going to have to take care of the ball better and we’re going to have to play better in the second half.”



                            (On turnovers)

                            “It can’t last because we can’t allow it to last. It’s happening because we’re too loose with the football. That starts with coaching. We say that we practice it, but it’s not carrying over in the games. To me, you play in games like you practice. Hopefully it’s a lesson we’ve learned the hard way and won’t continue it.”



                            (On if he wished WR Dante Hall had called a fair catch on the muffed punt)

                            “We trust his judgment and we’ll always trust his judgment. It’s easy to say now that we rather he caught it and returned it. Fair catch or not – a lot of times what people do is push and distract the returner by pushing...

                            Have anyone noticed that alot more teams..(college and NFL) are going on it on 4th down more often? I was watching the Colts game on saturday and the Colts had 4th and 8...and they went for it and failed. They did that twice..so they were 1/2 on 4th down convertions. I don't think teams should be going for it on 4th and 8.:helmet:

                            RAMS HEAD COACH STEVE SPAGNUOLO

                            “Obviously disappointed. I’ll start out by saying, win or lose, I think God always has his hand on this football team. I’m always going to say that and I’m grateful for that. I’ll credit Seattle and wish them luck next week. They played better. They won and we lost. A lot of things we certainly could have done better. I am proud of the football team for what they accomplished. That might make a little more sense tomorrow. The disappointment is all we feel right now. Probably got to get a good night sleep somehow and then reflect back on some of the things we might have done really good. I think injury-wise we got through okay. The only guy at the end there, Reggie said something might have been Chris Long’s hand. I don’t really have any idea what it is but we’ll take a look at it. With that, I’ll open it up.”

                            (On why he thinks they weren’t able to move the ball)
                            “Yeah. Field position was an issue. I can’t remember on all the swings of series but it seemed like a lot of them we were always coming out of our own end zone, you know, inside the 20. Even the drive we had for a field goal was an 80 yard drive, or 80-something. I know it was a long drive. I don’t know… Field position, maybe they punted it real well. We must have been giving up a little yardage defensively to have them move but field position was an issue, especially in the second half when I recall.”

                            (On Steven Jackson only having about 10 carries)
                            “I would have to look at it. We’re not counting them and all that as we go. I’d have to go back to down and distance situations and then you’re not gonna bang your head against the wall but do what we had to do to try to move the ball.”

                            (On if it was busted coverage on the deep completion to Ruvell Martin on Seattle’s first drive)
                            “It wasn’t a busted coverage. I think we got a little over-aggressive on the – he pumped it to the little flair route or the bubble screen, and then held onto it a little bit and then found him (Martin). That hurt us early because it gave them field position and they ended up with a touchdown on I think that drive.”

                            (On what he tells the players after the game)
                            “Well, I told them – there’s not a lot to say neatly after the game. We’ll get together tomorrow. Certainly, we’re all disappointed. I did tell them that I appreciated their efforts this year from the bottom of my heart because I thought the work ethic and what they did, hanging together and enjoying each other and some of the things we did along the way, I was very appreciative of that. Other than that, to stand in front of the team as disappointed as they are right now… I don’t spend a lot of time; I’ll do that tomorrow.”

                            We can go into all the missed opportunites by our offense. The bogus Pass Interference call in overtime. There's 1 play that sticks out in my mind.

                            4th quarter...2:23 left on the clock

                            Whiners are faced with a 4th and 18 at the RAMS 39 yard line.

                            Troy Smith hits Frank Gore for a 23 yard gain!!!!!

                            That hurt me as fan imagine what it did to our team.

                            NOT !!!!! .... and another game lost that we should have won, but did not because our offensive scheme is the worst in the league. What a pathetic performance on offense. Our defense has to be demoralized.

                            Furthermore - Why did we give up a 2nd round draft pick to trade up and get Tavon Austin when we could got DeAndre Hopkins and another starting offensive lineman ? Many people in this forum called it out as a mistake when the draft pick was made.
