  • My Xmas list

    Two add decent O-line men.

    Move Marshall to back up Jackson.

    Get Martz to call the plays faster so we can have time at the line to motion and find the right match ups. Not just run the play or call a time out, what happen to fast and furious.

    Time for Aeneas Williams to retire

    Just let Rich Coady go and never bring him back

    Find a Middle line backer with size and speed that likes to hit

    Start a KR that has speed and no fear, not a small RB looking to make some moves.

    Is it to late to tell Lovie no you canít leave.

    Make sure we have two QB on the team that know the system, oh we had that and we got rid of one my bad

    Start to pay attention to details

    Before we change systems like our defense make sure it fits the current depth chart

    Just bring back Max Q Ö

    I thing about yesterday and having Jackson in the mix is that for the past year or two I have been about 90% right on what kind of play the Rams were going to run. I would also be right about 50% of the time to which hole the run was going to. But yesterday, I couldn't do that. I was off about 90% of the time.

    I am not sure why things were different this time and whether Jackson changed things or not. But I do figure if I can see something in an offense so can other people. This could be the reason for the poor red zone percentage, and defenders being at the right place at the right time. Maybe Jackson will add something new to the mix and Martz will come up something more unpredictable, keeping defenses guessing like in years past.

    This team
    by LaRamsFanLongTime
    Does anyone really think this team is as bad as we are playing right now? I had high hopes for this season and took it pretty badly when we started losing right out the gates. I am trying to think of why and it is so obvious.

    Is it the Coaches fault? It can be but with all the injuries how do you come up with any consistancy in your playbook? Short passes QB dies long Passes QB dies. RB hurt plus the whole line hurt = no run game to take pressure off beat up QB's. So no I could not put this on the coach. Take away Welker, Tom Brady, and The whole o-line and the Patriots are not a great team.

    Lets see now defense? Yeah they still suck and have weekness in every spot. That is an area though I fealt going into this season that was a huge ????? The defense is definatly rebuilding and hopefully the high pick we get will be used on a immediate difference maker.

    Offense see the coach area we all know that an offense that banged up could not put up the numbers we are used too around these parts. Last week though we saw some life out of them.

    So the obvious choice is the reoccuring week defense and banged up offense. I am not sitting here thinking this team will be bad for the next 10 years. I think this season was an injury plagued season that will be long forgotten by mid season next year. Yes I do know that is a long time but we have no choice but to wait it out now do we?

    I think we let Linehan have at least a healthy season to see if he can right the ship. If this team faulters next year then a change should be made. BTW is it just me or should the conditioning coach be put out to pasture.

    First of all let me just say that these last few years have been VERY frustrating and embarassing for me as a RAM FAN and I'm sure you guys are just as disappointed. I have watched my team go from the greatest show on turf to, as a washington post columnist said after the redskins loss, " the most miserable mass on grass". MY main question here is , " How far are the rams from being a decent competitive rock solid team? Its a long way to go; it doesnt happen overnight but it shouldnt take FOREVER either.

    But I am not gonna sit here and talk about that all night. We know what has happened. We know what we've become. 13 straight losses dating back to last season. 3-13 in 2007 and 2-14 in 2008. 5 wins in the last 30 or so games? ( not sure exactly the stats) That is horrible.

    Let's go back year by year as to how we finished record wise.
    In the 1990's we were bad. But so were other teams which are now good today. But if you look at our 90's record to others, you will see that we were bad most of those years. Other teams had bad years too during the 90's but it was only really the lions, bengals, cardinals and saints. That should show you how bad of a team the Rams are. We never finished over 7 wins from 1990 up until 1999, which was our superbowl year. Which now tells me that the Rams have been bad, are now bad, and I hope we dont continue to be bad. But lately one has to believe that that is the penalty for our actions.

    2000- 10-6 DECENT
    2001- 14-2 ( excellent; we beat the pats that season but lost in the SB to the same :|)
    2002- 7-9 Not bad
    2003- 12-4 excellent
    2004- 8-8 not bad; competitive
    2005- I think we were 7-9 or 6-10 cant remember
    2006- 8-8
    2007- 3-13 horrible
    2008- 2-14 lousy

    I am not surprised at how we have fallen so badly. What I cant seem to understand is how fast we have fallen as such. How come we havent been able to stop the bleeding and bounce back like other teams have seemed to?

    So tell me guys. How far off is this team from competing? Well, I look at the league and I have noticed that most of the other teams have playmakers in a lot of key positions. Why is that? Because they do a great job of DRAFTING PLAYERS THAT FIT INTO THEIR SCHEME WELL. We on the other hand have not done that lately. We have drafted players that have done well IN THEIR SCHEME and so it didnt matter to the previous regime ( Jay ZYgmunt ) if they fit or not the point was they wanted them so much that they drafted them regardless of their college scheme and success. In the era since Martz left, we have drafted the likes of busts ( or so they appear to be) like Tye Hill, Adam Carriker, Claude Wroten, Fakhir Brown, etc. The list goes on and on.

    THIS HAS REALLY HURT THIS ORGANIZATION SO MUCH THAT IT IS REARING ITS UGLY HEAD NOW. Bad drafting has put us in such a talentless hole that...

    Rams - Not Ready For Some Football
    by Guest
    Well we just lost to last years worst team in the NFL. Next week we are playing the only team in the league that could not beat the worst team in the NFL in two tries last year.

    So far Special teams is worse then last year. I know, I know that is impossible right? We were so bad on special teams last year certainly the only place to go was up. Right? Wrong!

    Lets recap.
    • We field the opening kickoff, Not just the games opening kickoff mind you but the seasons opening kickoff and step out of bounds inside our own 1 yard line. The referee blows the whistle and we are set to start mired deep in our own territory. But wait its not bad enough yet. lets blow a time out and challenge the play? Never mind the fact that there is nothing to challenge, we don't like the results so we challenge it. So now we are mired deep in our own territory, ah hell it was worse then deep in our own territory we were deep inside our own one yard line and we have burned a time out and a challenge. Does anyone know exactly what in the hell Martz was challenging on that play? It will go down as the worst challenge since instant replay was reinstated I promise you that.

      We allow the 2-14ers to run back a kickoff to the 40 yard line.

      We allow a punt return for a touchdown.

      We call for and then execute a fair catch inside our own ten yard line at about the seven.

      We are fooled when the 2-14ers successfully execute an onside kick.

    Mixing Martz into a little bit of a running game is like mixing a little bit of Nitro into glycerin.

    He just did not understand that the middle of the 2-14ers line is where he needed to run Jackson. Most notably on 3rd down. What the hell is a running back of Jacksons size doing hesitating and juking in the backfield on 3rd down? I am not sure who told Jackson he resembled Marshall Faulk however the way he tried to do Faulk like hesitations and Faulk like cuts makes me believe that he is being mis-led on what kind of a running back he is. Jackson is Dickerson, Jackson is not Faulk and not Sanders he is a Dickerson style running back who runs high and runs straight using his size to punish tacklers. This needs to be corrected.

    Bulger looked good until he got down to the red zone and its no coincidence that he took most of his sacks in the red zone today. Credit the offensive line because when the 2-14ers stiffened in the short part of the field and were able to bring a 4 man front the offensive line could not keep them out of the backfield. There were a couple of coverage sacks however the offensive line looks pathetic.

    Credit the 2-14ers for coming out and executing some razzle dazzle early. That backward pass that traveled from the pocket to the sideline then thrown downfield into the waiting arms of a wide open receiver was right out of the Mike Martz handbook.

    Then the 2-14ers...

    Wow We Are In Trouble
    by ramsbruce
    I guess my 1st question is why did we not spy Vick? Not that it would have given us the win but how do you leave him unaccounted for. This loss was the whole teams fault coaches included. Martz still baffles me by wasting challenges. He even tried to challenge a play that you couldnt challenge, so I dont know what to think about that. Like I said in another post maybe we need a challenge/timeout coach LOL. Special teams almost looks worse thatn when April was here. Note to Martz: Steven Jackson is NOT a kick returner, he is too slow for that job. Dont we all remember the days of Tony Horne, he was a game changer, he was fast, he had a shot to break it every time. Tony Horne was Dante Hall before Dante was. Martz must remember Horne and Hakim (yes he fumbled alot) but he had speed and made game changing plays. I guarantee Jackson or Arlen Harris will never run a kick off back for a TD. We need some game changing plays from anyone. Our defense is horrible, these players need to step up. They just dont look motivated. Pisa gets credit and AW too but overall we need work. Every week Bruce and Holt bring it, Looker is doing ok. I hope Pace gets into camp next year cause he didnt look too good today. With our tough schedule if we dont get better we are in big trouble. Its a shame with all the talent we have, that we look this bad. Bulger needs more time from the O Line, some of his decisions are questionable but you gotta help the guy out too O Line. I hope we can pull through but its going to be tough. :ramlogo: :helmet:
