  • We Own Green Bay

    The media is going to have their lips planted all over the Packers because of one of the most over-rated QBs in the league. Favre throws more balls up for grabs then any QB I have ever seen. Sometimes he gets lucky and the ball magically lands in the hands of his receivers. (See Packers at Oakland on the day of Favre dad passing.) Other times, especially when challenged he throws up to six interceptions per contest. We own the Packers and that will continue.
    Who was the first team to beat the Packers after they won the Superbowl? Who whipped the Packers last year?
    Who spanked the Packers in the Playoffs when Favre threw 6 pics?
    What team did Ron Brown run Back two kickoffs against in an important game?
    Whos ripe for an upset? Whos hungry for a victory?
    Some things just do not change and the Rams deed over Green Bay is one of them.
    Martz is going to figure out what happened against buffalo both tactical and psychological. Martz has been on the edge of the coaching breakthrough we have been waiting for since 2000. It looks like the team will be eating their Turkey dinner on the practice field. (More evidence that Martz is getting it)The Seahawk losses will come and when they do, we have to be standing there with a win not wallowing in our own pity or our own shame. Remember all we have to do is tie with them to win the division. I think Martz is learning more with each loss. Hes learning more and hes learning faster then in previous years. Maybe because in previous years the losses were not as critical as they are now. He hears the alarm, he sees the flashing lights. He will turn this thing around Monday night. He is what we have and he is the only route the Rams have to the playoffs so we have to believe, we have to fight. The Rams are going to dig deep and so am I.

      Re: We Own Green Bay

      I hope your right RT. I'm getting a little tired of this mystery team. We will need to figure out a way to stop the run. You know that Ahman Green is licking his chops right now, and it aint because of turkey.

        Re: We Own Green Bay

        While we have owned Green Bay of late. All the games have been in the dome. Of course this year the frozen tundra has not been kind to the Pack.

        The Packers have signed James Jackson just in case Green can't go because of his ribs. As said above we need to stop the run. Farve can be forced into mistakes but he can also make the team around him play better.

        I think we can win this game if we limit the stupid mistakes and force turnovers. Even if Green plays, he has been known to fumble and the RAMS need to take advantage of that. Javon Walker is the main threat at receiver, but Driver will get his catches as well. Are DB's have to play a solid game to contain them.

        On a side note, I believe Green Bay won the SB in 1996, the following year they beat the RAMS.

          We make obscure TE's and RB's famous this year. I'm not taking anything for granted on the injury front.

                  Not asking you to take anything for granted. I am asking that we all believe, burn sage, think positive because the Rams will fight hard. Their backs are to the wall, Martz is going to have them out there spitting nails. Just believe.

                  On a side note, I believe Green Bay won the SB in 1996, the following year they beat the RAMS.
                  Without going to the media guide and relying on memory alone didn't the Rams open with Green Bay and score on their first posession then on the ensuing kickoff recover an on-side kick under Rich Brooks? or do I have my years/teams mixed up?

                    RamTime you are recalling a very good game. That was at the beginning of the 1994 season. That was also the last time the Pack was beaten at Lambeau for quite some time before Indy did it in 1998 (I believe). Still a great moment in RAMS/Packer history.

                    I beleive Todd Lyght returned a fumble or int for a TD just as the Packers were trying to score. Although that could be another RAMS/Packer game that I'm thinking of.

                        You know RamTime, you have good timing. Whenever I am losing faith in the Rams, you seem to pop in with some good words and make me believe again.

                        I am feeling more positive about Green Bay now. They have weaknesses and we have exploited them before.

                        Come on Rams....you can do it! Win one against Green Bay.

                          I too stand corrected as I had the year wrong. I guess the nineties just come out as a blur sometimes.

                          Anyways, yes we do own them.

                          As we type, Favre is thinking...These guys own me...man I hope I don't throw six interceptions...did A. Williams retire...sure hope my defense doesn't allow 30+ points again, it's hard enough to beat these guys when they score 20.

                            We Own Green Bay / Hey, Wisconsin...

                            Excellent thread, RamTime! :helmet:

                            As the NFL grows into this millenium, with so many years, so many years of history, the thousands and thousands of games, the many rivalries, dynasties and legends ... ten thousand memories within the heart of each team and fans...

                            *Sigh* ... one can rightly place a solid memento of a glorious battle between two of these teams at a given time and prepare for the present, i.e., this coming MNF match. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?

                            Packers / Rams: I can trace back to December of 1967. We HAD to win that next-to-last game (AND the last one Vs. Colts) in order to make playoffs. For the rest of the story, of this nail-biter of a game, see,

                            b. http://members.tripod.com/~mydamrams/index-200.html
                            c. http://www.angelfire.com/oz/pikeb/gb/1.html

                            _____________________________________
                            Here's some selected text of that broadcast:

                            December 9, 1967: GB PACKERS at LA RAMS

                            By the 13th week, the Rams had lost but one game and tied two, including a 24-24 tie with the Colts.

                            The Colts led the Coastal, undefeated and twice tied. The Rams' 13th- week opponents were the Packers.

                            The game was due-or-die for the Rams; for the Packers it was meaningless. Meaningless to everyone but Vince Lombardi. He told the press his team never had, nor never would, play a "meaningless" game.

                            Green Bay played it tough. With 54 seconds left, Donny Anderson stood at his 41 to punt, waiting the snap from center. The Packers led 24-20.

                            Suddenly, Ram reserve linebacker, Tony Guillory, broke through and blocked Anderson's kick. Claude Crabb grabbed the ball for L.A. and was finally caught at the Green Bay five.

                            Two plays later Bernie Casey -- a constant Packer nemesis -- caught a TD pass from Roman Gabriel. The Rams remained alive, 27-24.
                            ________________________________________________

                            *Sigh* The next and final game was also at home. This time the visitors were the mighty Baltimore Colts, that is to say, Johnny Unitas and Co. Again, it was a MUST situation for us.

                            Rams defense was in its glorious heyday of the famed 'Fearsome Foursome' -- and we had something of a "Greatest Show on (natural) Turf" in the late 60s as well! We were on a role. A resounding victory: 34-10!

                            Then came one of my earliest heartbreaking losses: RAMS at PACKERS, playoffs. We drew first blood early in the game, 7-0. Lost 28-7.

                            [A dramatic ending to my first Real Rams expectation! We were such a strong team from 1967 to 69. Believe me. Offense. Defense. Super Bowl III should have been ours! I didn't mind Namath predicting the Jets were to win, I only wanted the Rams to prove him wrong.]

                            :upset:

                            ________________________________________________

                            You can imagine how elated I was when, come playoffs time just a few years ago, we defeated Favre and the Packers. Absolutely, I can still see Tommy Polley and Aeneas Williams intercepting two of Brett's six INTs.
                            Warner to Holt, long distance. Et cetera. ;)

                            Repeat? Let's do it (somehow)! :1:

                            ________________________________________________

                            PS: Wisconsin, good to see you. How about inquiring what happened to your terrific RAMS JERSEYS thread you had in the previous ClanRAM? I wonder if Dez and Moderators could restore here...

                            I still have the file of the entire list/post where we had some really nice information of names & numbers!

                              Those links you posted are from Jerry's web site. His is my favorite Rams history site on the net bar none. Although he is hopelessly stuck in the 60's, 70's and 80's Rams era, its ok because we need someone like that on the net. He posts in this forum as Bloodinhall. Did you know that Steve Rosenbloom contacted Jerry and thanked him for the tribute to his dad Carroll Rosenbloom? Also he was/is a friend of the Malavasies. (Head coach that took the rams to superbowl xiv) I hooked up with him about 5 or 6 years ago when I noticed that an animated graphic that I created of a ram butting jerry rice into the air and through the goal posts was being pointed to from another rams page. At that time Jerry had just the one Rams page as he was just starting out. I helped him get started (and BTW he always gives me way too much credit for that) and to browse his site now its amazing. Makes me feel like a proud papa. Anyway when you guys go visit his site be sure to sign his guestbook. He has done a lot of unprecedented things over there and deserves thanks.

                                [Packers] Packers relish Rams' visit
                                by DJRamFan
                                By ARNIE STAPLETON
                                AP Sports Writer
                                GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Packers finally have the St. Louis Rams right where they want them: at Lambeau Field, on grass, in freezing weather.

                                Forgive Brett Favre if he's not jumping for joy.

                                "Well, I would much rather play them here than at their place. We haven't had much success at their place, and there's no guarantee that we will here," Favre said. "I think it's going to be a very difficult game. Either way. Here or there."

                                That might be, but he tied an NFL playoff record by throwing six interceptions at St. Louis 22 months ago, then broke his right thumb there last year.

                                The desperate Rams (5-5), who have lost three of four games, face the surging Packers (6-4), winners of five straight, on Monday night in a crucial game for two teams hoping to display some playoff pedigree in the jumbled NFC.

                                The Packers are banged up in both backfields, which might very well negate any home-field advantage _ something that sure was missing the last time they played at home on a Monday night, a 48-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Oct. 11.

                                "We'd like to erase that memory with a special Monday night performance and get rid of some of those ghosts we have from earlier in the season," Packers defensive end Aaron Kampman said.

                                The problems with the Rams go back to Jan. 20, 2002, when Favre threw those half-dozen interceptions in a 28-point playoff loss.

                                In October 2003, Favre broke his right thumb in a loss at St. Louis. Because he decided to play the rest of the season with a splint instead of having season-ending surgery, he kept alive his consecutive starts streak, which will reach 200 in the regular season Monday night, 219 counting the playoffs.

                                Few teams have had Favre's number like the Rams, who capitalized on 12 Packers turnovers to outscore Green Bay 79-41 in their last two meetings.

                                So the Packers have been looking forward to this night ever since the schedule came out.

                                "They're a different team, as everyone knows, indoors," safety Darren Sharper said. "The fact that we have them at home hopefully will play into our favor. But we're just happy to see them because they put a whooping on us last year and we'd like to get a little payback."

                                Payback? Guard Mark Tauscher is thinking more along the lines of a setback.

                                "You can't do anything about what happened last year, or the year before," he said. "But we can give them a big setback and knock them off here and really give ourselves a big boost because anytime you struggle against somebody and then you get over that hump, that's big emotionally."

                                Just like back in the 1990s, when the Packers lost seven straight to the Dallas Cowboys, three times in the playoffs...

                                I think we will come out in full force on Rodgers but he will still put up 3-4 TD's/300-400 yards. I don't think they will contain #39 and hope that we can play with effort.

                                Unlevel Playing Field: Field position, fan support help Packers
                                by RamWraith
                                By Jim Thomas
                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                Monday, Dec. 17 2007

                                For nearly three quarters, the St. Louis game plan worked effectively and the
                                Rams stuck with it. They established Steven Jackson and the running game early,
                                and took their shots with Marc Bulger in the passing game.

                                Through three quarters, the Rams had a 2-to-1 edge in possession time and had
                                outgained Brett Favre and the potent Green Bay offense by nearly 100 yards.
                                Yet, when the Rams looked up at the scoreboard at the Edward Jones Dome aka
                                Lambeau Field South they trailed by two touchdowns.

                                How did this happen?

                                Well, some gridiron historians refer to football as the "100-yard war." On
                                Sunday, it became more like a "50-yard skirmish" for the Packers. Thanks in
                                large part to lousy special teams play, the average starting point for the
                                Packers' drives was their 48-yard line.

                                Of Green Bay's 12 offensive series, six started in St. Louis territory. Three
                                others started at the Packers' 40, 44 and 48-yard lines.

                                "I just know when we're on offense and we hit the 50, it's kind of like you're
                                going downhill," Bulger said.

                                The Packers were going downhill all afternoon, like a sled on the snow at Art
                                Hill. Of the 53 offensive plays by Green Bay, 41 began in St. Louis territory.

                                "You're not going to beat a good football team like (Green Bay) doing that,"
                                coach Scott Linehan said.

                                Given such a lopsided edge in field position, it's almost surprising that the
                                final score wasn't more lopsided than Green Bay 33, Rams 14.

                                "They have only two losses for a reason," Bulger said. "They're a good team.
                                They made us play with that field position."

                                And made them pay because of that field position. Green Bay's victory coupled
                                with Seattle's loss to Carolina clinched a first-round playoff bye for the
                                Packers (12-2).

                                On a day when Favre eclipsed Dan Marino's NFL record for career passing yards,
                                it seemed as if all of Green Bay was on hand. With Rams fans continuing to bail
                                on their 3-11 team, thousands of "lower bowl" tickets belonging to Rams
                                season-ticket holders ended up in the hands of Packers fans.

                                Green and gold were the colors of the day. Cheeseheads everywhere. Dozens of
                                pro-Packers signs throughout the stadium. There was no way to know officially,
                                but it looked as if there were more Packers fans than Rams fans in attendance.

                                "It was a joke," Jackson said. "It's as simple as that. The whole (lower) level
                                was Green Bay Packers. We allowed them to put up signs. It's a joke."

                                "That was the worst, as far as the other team's fans,"...

                                [Packers] Wholl run behind Favre? Its hard to say
                                by DJRamFan

                                After the Green Bay Packers practiced on Saturday, coach Mike Sherman still didnt seem to have any idea who his starting running back would be when the Packers host the St. Louis Rams on Monday night at Lambeau Field.

                                For the fourth straight day, the Packers had to practice without Pro Bowl back Ahman Green, who has been out since injuring his ribs in Sunday nights win over the Houston Texans.

                                Green is listed as questionable on the teams injury report, but Sherman said he likely wont know until Monday whether Green will be able to play.

                                He did some things for us, like hitting bags, just to see where he was, Sherman said.

                                Hes still day-to-day and we will not know anything until game day.

                                If Green does play, Sherman said he will almost certainly wear a flak jacket to protect his ribs. Sherman said he wants to test Green, but said he doesnt want to further injure him in doing so.

                                We certainly cant replicate the hit that he took, Sherman said.

                                Hes a pretty tough guy, but we have to find out if he can twist and torque like he usually does.

                                If Green is unable to go, Sherman said he hopes to start backup Najeh Davenport.

                                More than likely, that would be the case. Sherman said.

                                If Sherman sounds unsure, its because Davenport isnt healthy, either. An injured hamstring had him on the inactive list for the Texans game.

                                Davenport practiced Saturday and is listed as probable for Monday nights game.

                                Davenport said he is confident he will be able to start if needed.

                                I feel like Im about 80, 85 percent, Davenport said. I feel good. Im ready to go if (Green) cant. Thats why Im here.

                                In the unlikely event neither Green nor Davenport can play Monday night, Sherman will have to look to Tony Fisher or possibly even James Jackson, whom the Packers signed on Tuesday.

                                Sherman said hes been pleased with the job Jackson has done, trying to learn an entire offense in less than a week.

                                James has done an outstanding job, Sherman said. He hasnt made a mental mistake all week.

                                Fullback Nick Luchey is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, but Sherman said he was optimistic Luchey might be able to go.

                                Running back Walter Williams, who has a high ankle sprain, was downgraded from questionable and will miss Monday nights game.

                                If Green cant go, the Packers may have to rely on Brett Favre to carry the offense. With Davenport out and Greens time severely limited against the Texans, Favre threw the ball 50 times. It was the most pass attempts hed had in a game since Nov. 27, 2000, when he threw 51 times against the Carolina Panthers. Green Bay offensive coordinator Tom Rossley said he hopes...

                                Green Bay has won five straight since it flopped in its last appearance on 'Monday Night Football'


                                By Todd McMahon
                                News-Chronicle
                                There was a time, not long ago, when a general consensus had formed that the Green Bay Packers' time was all but up in the 2004 season.

                                They left a national TV audience equal parts flabbergasted and appalled the evening of Oct. 11. The Tennessee Titans stormed Lambeau Field and battered the Packers into submission by way of a 48-27 defeat, the most points ever surrendered by the home team at its sacred stadium.

                                Like that, the two-time reigning NFC North champions had sunk to the unfathomable low of being at the bottom of the division with a 1-4 record spun out of a four-game losing streak.

                                That was the last time the Packers had a co-starring role on ABC's "Monday Night Football." My, how the times have changed in the seven weeks leading up to their return engagement - and there's more to it than the network's catching flak for one of its desperate housewives baring herself to Philadelphia star receiver Terrell Owens in a recent pregame locker-room spoof.

                                At 8 tonight, the coast-to-coast TV audience will be introduced to a Green Bay team that has taken on a new, albeit familiar identity. All the Packers have been doing since bombing in their last "MNF" episode is win.

                                They put a five-game winning streak on the line against St. Louis (5-5) at Lambeau Field. At stake for the 6-4 Packers is maintaining a hold on the NFC North lead, a concept that seemed a pipe dream in the wake of the debacle against the Titans.

                                "We know how it feels to be 1-4. That feels pretty bad. We've been through that, and we don't want to go back there," said right guard Marco Rivera.

                                No turning, or looking, back is precisely the outlook head coach Mike Sherman drilled into his players' heads Wednesday morning. It was his first meeting with the team since addressing it late last Sunday night, following its gritty 16-13 comeback win at Houston in another prime-time game.

                                He paralleled what transpired in those four quarters to how the Packers' season has unfolded to date.

                                A 13-3 deficit through a dismal three quarters mirrored their 1-4 start in the win-loss ledger. "In that game, things weren't looking very good," Sherman reflected.

                                Lo and behold, the Packers caught fire in the final 15 minutes to score 13 unanswered points, pulling out the victory on Ryan Longwell's 46-yard field goal as time expired. A microcosm of how they've rallied in the past month and a half to string together the five wins.

                                "The guys hung together throughout the game; they believed in themselves," Sherman continued with the analogy. "You're down 13-3 going into the fourth quarter, and guys battled back. I thought...
