  • Hats Off..... Mike Martz. For having the guts to challenge the players to perform to their abilities. And for having the team focused and prepared. the Rams. For accepting the challenge and doing what it takes to deliver the victory.

    Let's build on this win and close out the second half of the season with a win streak.

    Oh, and before I forget......Marshall, Marshall, Marshall!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Hats Off.....

    One of the best first quarters I have seen since the "good old days". Way to go Rams!! But they seemed to lose their concentration the rest of the way until that fine final drive. I hope this is something to build on.

      Do It For Marshall
      by Rip32
      I was thinking if Marshall comes back for what would surely be his last year do you think this team would rally around Marshall like the Steelers did with Bettis and try and get him another superbowl ring to cap of a prolific career,I know this team is different from the Steelers in that we lack the team leaders like Porter-Polamalu-Farrior-Rothlisberger to rally the troops but it would be nice to see some more effort and desire to win another for Marshall before he clocks out.

      What did Marshall know??
      by RamWraith
      Last night I was lying in bed thinking about the Rams organization and what it was going to take to get this ship turned around. The thing that keep coming to be head was Marshall. I am not sure why. We hear so many things that he was the key to the '99 season and beyond. Players looked to him for leadership, role model, a teacher, everyone seen him as the Pro's pro. Why??

      Marshall came to the Rams from a failure organization that didn't have any more success then the Rams through the 90's. Who would have taught Marshall any keys to success. Many inside the Colts organizations claimed they had to dump Faulk for his poor work ethic, his lack of leadership and his me only attitude. What changed and why did people on the team look to Marshall for guidence for all the baggage he was bringing with him??

      This is a very confusing issue for me. As much as I agree with Marshall being the man...there is still issues that make me question him...why? There are still a lot of stories out there where fans have met Marshall on a personal level and that experience has left a sour taste in the fans mouth. I am not sure I believe Marshall was the key to success through our run. And I do at times wonder if he is the type that should be put into the oval office to make decisions that need to be TEAM decisions. In the words of Denny Green -- I am not sure Marshall is who we thought he was...

      The ill-fated reverse
      by AJD45
      The amazing thing is even with the Giants treating this game as if it was their Super Bowl (throwing a fade on 4th and goal? I don't think the NY Giants have done that EVER. And Toomer just happens to make the catch of his life against us?) ... AND with the defense playing as bad as possible ... AND with the same old stupid penalties and turnovers ... the Rams *still* had the game in their grasp!

      Then the ill-fated reverse play.

      I'm sure some folks think it was a bad call, period, end of discussion. After all, the Rams had the Giants D on the ropes at that point pretty good and probably just could have rammed Jackson down their throats. But I believe in creative play calling, so don't second-guess the call. I question the execution. In other words, I have to ask:

      How the hell do professional football players lateral the ball on a reverse? How can you be so frickin' stupid after playing the game for so many years?

      If you have ever coached football, you know the ball on that play is never, EVER pitched -- you drill it into the players' heads that it is an outside handoff. So either (a) Martz drew it up to be a lateral exchange, or (b) the players ad-libbed the pitch attempt instead of a handoff. Either way it shows poor coaching: the former would be unfathomable coaching stupidity; the latter would once again go back to the theme that Martz has not instilled one ounce of discipline in this team.

      The laundry list of stupidity, from stepping out of bounds on the 1-yard line on the opening kickoff, to jumping offsides almost once per drive (offense AND defense), habitual grabbing of facemasks, carelessly tossing the pigskin around when you're trying to come back on the road -- well, enough is enough, it's embarrassing..!

      We all believe in the Rams because the talent is obvious, but can we believe the stupidity will ever stop? It's just not that hard. I'm not asking the players to be geniuses, just stop being morons and the Rams would win out every remaining game!

      I'd like to hear Martz give his players that speech just once.

      Love this guy. Once again he came through in the clutch and just had a great game. Hats off to all these Rams, they answered the call.

      Is Marshall Gone?
      by r8rh8rmike
      The announce team talked a lot about today possibly being Faulk's last home game as a Ram, which I don't put a lot of stock in, but after the contest, many Ram players made a concerted effort to find Marshall and give him a pat and a few words. Makes we wonder if they may have some insight to something we don't.
