  • Wild Card WAG's

    I figured since the Rams are resting, I would throw out my picks for Wild Card Weekend and invite everyone else to do so:

    Colts-Texans: Colts
    Seahawks - Cowboys: Cowboys
    Chargers-Ravens: Ravens
    Bears-Eagles: Bears​​​​​​

    Gentlemen?

      Getting in a little late, but picking

      Hags
      Chargers
      Eagles.

      Colts already won, so no need to pick that one.

        Gentlemen?
        Wish I had seen this post earlier but knew the Colts where going to top the Texans and they did. Reason the QB. Colts have a QB who can throw the ball and hit his target, where as the Texans has a QB that's hit or miss in the throwing game and has to use his legs to move the ball for 1st downs. Colts have a balanced defense and can took away the Texan passing game

        Reason for the Cowboys...it comes down to who has more in the passing game. Personally I think Wilson is more accurate and better as a QB in that regard, but the Squawks lack WR and other play makers in the passing game. Both are going to run the ball so its a coin flip who racks up more yards in the Game but it doesn't matter because I think its yards in the air that matters and defense. Cowboys have a fast LB core and that goes good against the run and Wilsons running/scrambling

        Charger Ravens...its all QB. Ravens have the better defense but Chargers have a good enough defense to counter the Ravens QB and his running the ball. Personally I think the game will be Colts/Texans' game part II

        Eagles, they are more likely to make more plays on offense then the Bears on offense. For the Bears to win, they need turnovers on defense big time--without that I don't think the Bears offense scores enough points to match the Eagles.

          So who do we want to win Chicago vs Philly? If Philly wins, the Rams will play Dallas. If Chicago wins, the Rams play Chicago.

          Chicago and Dallas are kind of similar in that they are both teams with strong defenses, and talented yet inconsistent offenses. I know Chicago is seeded higher than Dallas, but I think I'd almost rather play them again. Zeke Elliot would give us fits all day, and we kind of already know what we're getting into with the Bears. What do you guys think?

                So far, you're doing great.

                I didn't expect the Colts to be so dominating, but they were.

                I also didn't like seeing the injuries in the Cowboys-Shehawks game. Those were brutal to watch.

                Hopefully, that's the end of the injuries in the playoffs.

                Except for Brady. I would LOVE to see him with a broken ego!

                  Moon on a roll!

                  From my perspective, I do not care who the Rams play next weekend. I strongly feel the Rams can win in 1st round if they do not beat themselves. Last year's game was just that. Rams beating themselves (Thanks Pharoah)

                  Be patient....take what the opposition gives you (This is for you McVay and Goff) If it is not there it is not there.
                  Take the sack if need be Goff. Do not fumble the ball trying to escape. Not your forte
                  Run the ball. It will be tough sledding to start but stick with it
                  Stop the run......Since Talib has returned, our coverage has vastly improved.


                  Just play smart and Rams win. Either Chicago or Dallas....does not matter if Rams play to their potential

                    Bear by far is a better match up for the Rams. Goes to what I said about the Bears/Eagles game--Bears offense I think can't score enough to out pace the Eagles. Eagles get a TD, the Bears answer with a FG--don't think it will be a wild shootout just who puts up more telling points and don't think the Bears can match that. Its the same if the Bears come to L.A.

                    Dallas offers a more challenging game. For Dallas to have a chance, they have to slow the tempo of the game down and have to make 4 key stops on defense. Mainly Dallas has to be within or at least one score difference from the Rams in the last 5min of the 4QT, They have to keep the Rams' offense off the field. All that is because if the Rams are smart on defense some fast LB should always spy where Zeke is and a Safety shadowing Prescott's every move and slide double coverage to the wideouts---here the Rams defense has to pressure Prescott everyu game and force Dallas to attempt to run the ball

                        I probably shouldn't pick squat. I'm the guy who took Lavian Bell with the #1 in fantasy football this year.

                              I think chicago vs dallas was a toss up for us from my perspective, both are really good teams that do a great job stopping the run, but here is why i am fine playing dallas. I think philly has a better chance of winning in new orleans than dallas did. Dallas already won there once, i dont see it happening again. Philly lost to new orleans by 40 points. They are an entirely different team from that game. I would love another shot against philly at home in the nfc title game.

                              I think McRammer is 100% correct. if we play to our potential and dont self destruct, we should win next weekend no matter which team we play. The team that concerned me the most was the chickens because beating a team three times in one year is really tough to do and its a brutal division matchup.

                              Ramming speed to all

                                Who do you see making the Super Bowl?
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                At this point (post-week 11), here's how I see it:

                                San Diego Chargers 34
                                Chicago Bears 23

                                I think the Colts will fall again in the playoffs. They simply don't match up well against the Chargers, who are great running the ball, pressure the QB and don't give up a lot of sacks.

                                The Bears are not a complete team, but I think they will have home field in the playoffs, and I don't see anyone in the NFC beating them in Chicago in December.

                                The Chargers are going to win it all by overwhelming the Bears, who will not be able to protect Grossman well enough to stay in the game.

                                That's how I see it happening.

                                A Rams Fan's Preview of the Divisional Round
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                Patriots @ Broncos
                                How could any Rams fan root for the Patriots? I, for one hope that the Broncos blow out the Pats, and I think they might just do that. Prediction: Broncos 34 Patriots 20.

                                Steelers @ Colts
                                This one will be ugly. The Steelers D will not slow down the Colts offense much, and the Colts D will stop Big Ben and company. I'm torn on this one. I think that Dungy, Manning and the Colts are due, but I still have a soft spot for Jerome Bettis. Prediction: Colts 27 Steelers 10.

                                Redskins @ Seahawks
                                The Redskins defense will slow, but not stop, the Hawks' offense. The Skins have very little offense, though, and won't be able to score enough. Its time the Hawks end their playoff drought. Prediction: Seahawks 23 Redskins 16.

                                Panthers @ Bears
                                As a Ram fan, I want to root for Lovie Smith. But, if the Bears were to get eliminated, the Rams could lock up Ron Rivera sooner. In the end, though, the Bears should advance. Prediction: Bears 17 Panthers 13.

                                I'll tell you what, that was a crazy game and I thought the Steelers took control and then the Colts came back and we were all sitting on the edge of our seats, especially the last 5 minutes of the game and neither team gave up, awesome game but you know what???? I'd hate to be Vanderjagt right now, DAYUM!!!!

                                How to Beat the Colts
                                by SwingOnDeez
                                What I see for Monday Night is a next-to impossible situation for the Rams:

                                A solid offense and a poor defense (Rams)
                                vs.
                                A great offense and a solid defense (Colts)

                                I say "solid defense" for the Colts just to be safe. Some would say that the 29 points we've given up in 5 games means that we're far better on defense than merely "solid," but I'll be conservative.

                                So....

                                This game is not impossible for the Rams, just darn close.

                                In my humble estimation, the following must occur for the Rams to win:

                                1) The Rams must get ahead early and make the Colts come from behind. "Duh," you may say, but seriously, you can't play catch-up against the Colts. Our D is good enough to slow you down, and our running and short passing games are good enough to keep the clock running.

                                Furthermore, if you're behind, you must pass. Then Mr. Freeney comes to town. (FYI, Robert Mathis, our other speed rushing end has more sacks than Freeney). Getting yourselves into obvious passing situations is dangerous, because we have the best 4-man pass rush in the game. Bulger will have some passing yards, but they can't be in a comeback effort, or there's no hope.

                                2) Bring your defense up and force Peyton to beat you long. No one has done this yet, and Edge has eaten defenses alive. Everyone plays bump the WR's, then get BACK. No one seems to notice Peyton's problem of overthowing receivers on long routes. They see the Indy offense and the great WR's and think that you have to allow the short pass and the run to take away the deep ball. I'd send the house and make Peyton throw long. He can self-destruct.

                                3) Don't get forced into stupid turnovers. The Colts Defense is not the stiffling, pound you into the ground, iron monster that other successful defenses have been. The Colts have speed, and they force preventable turnovers. Take the sack, throw out of bounds, get down instead of risking a fumble. Our linebackers are STILL mediocre. Cato June has 2 INTS and 2 TD's. You can't tell me he's a Pro Bowler, but yet, offenses are making him look like he is. Granted, you have to take risks to beat a better team, but if Bulger can just get through the gae without throwing a stupid interception or putting the ball on the ground, he will GREATLY increase the Ram's chances.

                                4) Don't miss field goals. Enough Said.

                                5) Don't onside kick. The Titans and 49'ers thought this would be a good idea. It's not. All it does is tell your players, "Well boys, we have no chance of stopping them, so let's just throw in all our chips now and get out of here early."

                                6) Throw Deep. Particularly if one side of our secondary is Jason David and Mike Doss, we aren't a shut-down secondary. Why the hell haven't the 1st 5 teams thrown deep on these guys? Challenge them. They will screw...

                                Heres the thing, everyone is talking about the Colts D and how the Rams could easily get blown out. Well the way I see it, the Colts D hasn't played ANYBODY yet. The Colts have played Baltimore's ridiculous offense, Jacksonville who are just OK on offense nothing spectacular, Cleveland nuff said there lol, Tennessee who really have lost a step or two, and the Whiners with a ROOKIE QB in his first start. So yes the Colts D have looked great but wait untill they play some offensive minded teams before calling them the 85 Bears. Until the Colts shut down some REAL offenses it's really hard to say the Colts D is for real. I would say they are improved but they haven't proved anything yet.
