      Man, to be honest, I don't see the Rams getting in the wildcard. Anything can happen though!

        I don't see it either but we can hope. There is no question we have to win out. Especially that last game in Seattle. That actually seems harder than banking on Sea and Chi to lose.

        Because seattle can easily lose to the niners before they see us. And chicago could easily lose to both GB and Det.

          We have a chance boys, c'mon. The Cowgirls just lost Dez Bryant for the year, HUGE hit to a team thats heavily depended on him the past 3 weeks. The Deadskins just lost their QB who may miss next weeks game, plus they have a tough schedule. The Vikings we play this week, and after that have a TERRIBLE schedule. All we need is Seattle to lose to the *****, and we MUST win out, especially week 17 at Seattle.

          LETS GO BOYS! DO IT FOR SJ!

            If we beat the Vikings On Sunday.....then playoff talk will certainly heat up and the prospect will be much more feasible......essentially, the Rams are in the playoffs now so to speak. I am sure Fish has them in that mindset.

                Before the Monday night game, this is how I prognosticated how the season would end.

                Falcons 14-2
                Pack 12-4
                Seachicks 11-5
                whiners 10-5-1
                Skins 10-6
                NY G 9-7
                Bears 9-7
                RAMS 8-7-1

                While there is a chance that the Giants and/or Bear lose out, and that the RAMS could win out, but I don't see it happening. If the season ends as I have it above, do you think any of the sports media's talking-heads will be crying about a NFCW team with a better record being the visiting team when a NFCE team with a lesser record would be hosting the game? Actually, in the above, one of the ESPN chearleaders will, as his favorite team would be on the road in Washington.

                    no idea, people didn't think the rams would even phase the niners, not the seahawks either....heck some people didn't even think they could beat the CARDINALS again

                    i think the rams, although not in a pretty fashion, are turning it around extremely subtly

                    i'm thinking playoffs :ram:

                      If you're asking me, it is more my lack of faith in the NFL to give the any team, let alone the RAMS, a level playing field in Seattle this year. That is the only RAMS loss I predict.

                      While the officials have given a WHOLE LOT LESS assistance to our opponents the past two weeks, they still have not given the RAMS a level playing field. Given what the officials have "given" to the seachickens this season, as far as "home cookin'", I highly doubt that will change in game 16.

                      I mean, even the league defended the most ludicrous call in recent sports history. Do you think they were being "objective"?

                      If the officials don't kill RAMS' kick/punt returns (normal or TD) with ticky tack/bogus penalties, and they don't extend seachicken drives with penalties they aren't calling against the seachickens, the RAMS go 3-0 the rest of the way. I just don't think the officials can break the habit of screwing the RAMS. It's in their nature, and possibly the the hidden rule book.

                        If the whiners lose out and the seahawks beat the whiners, and if the rams win out couldnt we still win the division?

                          Yes, If the RAMS win out, the whiners lose out, and the seachickens lose their other two games, the RAMS would tie the whiners and beat the seachickens. The RAMS would then lead the Division with with the tie-breaker over the whiners.

                          If that would happen, it would be SO AWESOME!! I'm giddy right now, just thinking about it.

                            The Rams Superbowl would be the Seahawks game and play spoiler.

                            ** Likely for the Hawks they will be playing for their playoff lives counting on them to finish off Buffalo without much difficulty. Further the 49whinner game they would be more focused on mostly since they likely fear that game more then the other 2. Should the 49whinners win, they would be desperate to win vs the Rams.

                            **For the Rams to cook the Seahawks goose and end their season, that would be most sweat, best Christmas present possible.

                              Not to discount the vikings but man I'm scared of that tampa bay game more than anything. If we win both I'm not worried about the seahawks game because jeff fisher will get them ready for a playoff type game. But man that buccaneers game scares me

                                The NFC West is still up for grabs and having our RAMS in the hunt is very exciting!!!!

                                We have 4 wins. Assume it takes 10 to get in. We have 10 gets left, meaning realistically, we need to win 6. Where do those six come from?

                                Answer. Home vs kc, home vs ariz, home vs whiners, road vs oakland, home vs washington and road vs minny.

                                Probable Losses. At sandiego, at seattle.

                                We have a decent shot- at carolina and home vs. the bears

                                In the "we have a decent shot" category, both of those could easily be losses.

                                As i see it, given the second half collapse vs seattle and the loss to the whiners, we can certainly still make the playoffs, but we have virtually no margain for error at this point. No more mulligans. The oakland game scares the heck out of me, its the ultimate trap game. A terrible team, with us on the road, will we be up and ready to play? I dont think we should anticipate that 9-7 will get us in. Its not impossible, but not likely either. Thus, we cant even begin to think about the impact of a loss to either a sf, ariz or oakland at this point.

                                I think it will all come down to those last two weeks and with wins vs washington and minny i think we get in.

                                The game with the most upside of course is at seattle, because if we can find a way to win that game, all of this changes and we are right back in the hunt to win the west. If we lose that game, its wild card or bust in all liklihood, even if we wind up at 11-5 since they will hold the tiebreaker.

                                I dont care how good the bears are, i think we have a shot against anyone playing at home. The game is also several weeks away and there is no telling the injury status of the teams at that point.

                                When you break down the sked like this, you see why those early season games against lousy teams like detroit and green bay were must wins. People say "its early in the season there is plenty of football left." Sure there is, but there are only 16 games and you have to be realistic about your chances on the road, especially against the tough teams.

                                Consistency is the key in the nfl and if you want to be a playoff team, you have to be solid, you cant play just to the level of your competition and you HAVE to put teams away when you have the chance, especially quality teams, and that is something we failed to do last sunday and it bit us in the butt.

                                ramming speed to all
