  • Great Game Yesterday

    I just wanted to drop by and give you guys the ole digital handshake after a great game. The Rams really gave it to my saints; I had this one chalked up as an L. You guys are really just a couple of pieces away from making some noise in a playoff race.

    Best of luck the rest of the way.

    Thanks WhoDat. You probably think we are nuts to be over here celebrating a loss like it was a win, but it has been a long road for us with many coaching changes and many bad games. We have been shut out two games this year.

    A loss like this is as good as a win for us. This season is a rebuilding season for us and if we can manage a couple of wins, we will feel good. Steve Spagnuolo came to us in the off season and it is taking some time to make the changes that he wants. We are hoping that he is a real answer for this team.

    Good luck to the Saints. I hope you guys get deep into the playoffs. I have no reason to dislike your team and I hope you do well. New Orleans deserves some happier times and I sure the Saints winning has them happy.

      Living in the panhandle of Florida I get proximity broadcast of all saints game and they are probably my second or third favorite team so I am more accepting of a lose to the saint then say the titans. I really hope you guys make it to the superbowl this year, you got guys on that team that deserve it.

        The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

        The good.......there was very little in the saints game.
        The bad.........there was alot!!!
        The Ugly........ditto!!!

        I was kind of afraid that the saints were going to pull off a victory. If anyone read my last post which read: Will the saints go marching on. It talks about a possibility of them having our number. For some reason the team plays with added intense due to their coach and team mates being fired up since we have been ex-superbowl winners who have won with bull **** flee flickers and screens and fancy plays. The saints coach seems to think that we are a bunch of crap players with crappy non-football plays.

        Truth is, the Rams beat the Rams fair and square!!! We lost the game due to silly penaltys, fumbles, interceptions, costly errors, un-special teams, blown plays and a missed field goal. If we played error free football or at least hanged on to the ball without giving it away with our fumbles and interceptions, we would have won yet as murphy's law plays out so many sundays, it was a game of 'what can go wrong will go wrong' and to think that the Rams are exempt from murphys law is wrong! It was bound to happen and I say good, why?

        Well, lets just say that the next time we play the saints on their turf, it will be a different game. We should learn from our mistakes and hopefully on the next meeting, we will be playing with a healthy Faulk, and fumbleless game, a zero interception, a game plan that will have many flee flickers, trick plays so that it will inferiate the saints coach and perhaps a few on side kicks to boot ;-). I think that the Rams have learned a valuable experience of this loss and that if they can bounce back and play with added aggression due to this loss, perhaps this will propel them into the nfc playoffs.

        This game against the saints truely was a horror film for the players as well as the fans and we didn't even get to see georgia for her halloween yearly appearance :mask: , darn!!! I believe that we see the saints mid december again. I will hope that we will bring with us a more intense game plan and an error free game in the georgia dome so that it can erase this bad taste that this last game left. And I hope that Martz will remember what the saint's coach said about the Rams and their so called plays so that he can fire up the team to seek revenge. I honestly don't think that the saints coach should be talking smack until he takes his team to the big dance and wins the big one! Rememeber, we walked the walk and can talk the talk since we are a past victorious superbowl team.

        We now have a 'bye' week to rest, gather our thoughts and hopefully allow Faulk to return with 100% healed on his knee.
        I predict a victory againt Carolina after the return from the bye week yet I will go out on a limb and
        I guarantee a victory (IE: Joe Namath/broadway Joe) against the...

        We can beat the Saints...
        by rNemesis
        next week if we play our style of football for the entire game . I really think we can, however, I dont think that this defense can afford to stay on the field for too long against that offense. Its probably best, and very important, that we keep it close and keep Brees off the field for as long as possible. Not exactly sure if we want to and are able to get in a shootout with them.
        That being said , I expect a hard fought game with the winner probably having the least amount of turnovers. This is, once again, a huge test for us because I feel that beating other teams outside of the division says a lot. If teams like the Browns and Cardinals can do it then we can too . No excuses here guys.
        I didnt mention the other teams on our schedule because our focus is not, nor should it be, on them. If I had to say which game would mean the most for us winning, its not the Chiefs in STL (ok, maybe I did ;) ) or the Seahawks in Seatle , its the CHAMPS in the Metrodome .
        I expect every bit of fight from our RAMS

        Good Luck To The Rams and The Fans!
        by Saint Fanatik
        Just wanted to drop a quick note to say good luck in the upcoming playoffs and (I'll say it) the Super Bowl. The Rams look unstoppable (and I got $20.00 bucks on them to win it all) and ready to take it all.

        I wish I could say the same about the Aints (yup, I called them the Aints - the have died in December) but after the last three drubbings at the hands of you guys, the Bucs and the 'Skins, my season is over.

        Kurt Warner has always been a favorite of mine. Class guy.

        Take care all and Happy New Year.

        Week 2 Predictions Saints @ Rams
        by macrammer
        I wish it never happened but it did. A blown call that lives in infamy.. A mistake that has been blown out of proportion. The Rams had to overcome a 23-20 lead by the Saints. Rams did, in waning moments. Saints failed to hold the lead. The Saints won the coin toss for OT. Elected to receive. The % were with them to score first. They did not. Fowler affected Brees throw and Johnson intercepts. Saints D need to hold Rams. They did not. In one of the most epic kicks in NFL folklore, the Leg nailed a 57 yarder to send the boys to the SB. Just an amazing game but one that is now mostly known for the blown call.

        As luck would have it, here we are in week 2 facing the Saints, I suppose I never really disliked the Saints all of these years. But hard for me to look at them with anything but some contempt over so much whining.

        Rams lead series 42-34. NFC West divisional rivals until 2001. Teams first met in 1967. Drew Brees, Kamara, Thomas bla bla bla

        This is the type of game Rams need to win but it won't be end all if they lose.

        Goff needs to improve performance....if he does Rams win 34 -27

        What say you?...

        Just Thinking The Unthinkable Outloud
        by live4ramin
        Dirty Saints players you say? Last season was one of the worst for RAMS fans. We were never so bad - and we managed to defeat the mighty, head-hunting Saints. Looking back it seems like we whooped them handily too. I was ready then for us to take our ass kickin, but I guess anything can happen on any given sunday. Right?

        Well my question is if the saints played dirty, and other teams are dirty too I know, but couldn't it be possible that a few of those dirty players could have somehow "dialed down" the intensity just enough to, I don't know, like, lose?

        "Say it ain't so, Joe" It's just one game along the way. I'm not a conspiracy guy, but.....It's big money.
