  • Defense Rests !

    OK, the Rams survived their worst defensive effort of the season. My take....the Gods are watching out for us. What better place all season for the Rams defense to have a bad game but in Carolina? Couldn't have happened at a better time. Lovie Smith now makes Polley a starter (good move) and makes a very important statement to his team. No excuses ! That's right, no excuses about an injured secondary, a tired team after an emotional Monday night victory. Bull ! He doesn't buy it and he won't let his players either.

    What unbelievable timing for this wake up call. Look for the Rams defense to swarm the Colts on Sunday. Look for some intensity from the defensive side of the ball from the Rams for the last two games of the regular season. Then look for a totally healthy unit to come into the playoffs with one very important lesson learned, you can't let up.

    You tell, me, are the football Gods watching over the Rams this year or what?

    Warner, healthy. Faulk, healthy. Receivers, healthy. Line, healthy. Secondary, almost back to 100%. Two indoor games left, both at home, both against losing teams with not much to play for. Oh yeah, and did I mention, AZ Hakim will no longer be returning punts, finally.

    Unless, for some reason, the football Gods turn against St. Louis, it looks really quite good for another super bowl opportunity.

    If nothing else, we've had another great year to watch and we've got lots to look forward to.

    GO RAMS, beat the Colts and win it all !

    Proud of the Rams.
    by Guest
    I havenít read anyoneís thoughts on the Rams play today and before I do I want to give a few thoughts of my own. Surely this board is full of negative posts regarding the Rams game today however what did anyone expect? Sure we were all hoping to steal a win today but it didnít happen. I for one am proud of the heart the Rams have shown this year and especially when their backs have been to the wall. Bringing in street players, trying to hold it together after their head coach fell ill, starting Larry Curly and Moe in the secondary, Playing with a quarterback that hasnít thrown but a minuet amount of NFL passes, another defensive starter going down with a broken ankle it just goes on and on and on and on. I just cannot be mad at these guys. Sure they lost, sure they over pursued on defense today, sure Furry made a huge mistake taking the angle he did on one of the big runs, sure they looked like a team that hasn't played much together but guess what they haven't played much together furthermore these guys havn't quit.

    I'll tell you who did quit though, I did. I quit on the Rams two weeks ago believing that game was over. Truth be known I bet many of you did to. But who didn't quit? The Rams didn't quit, the coaches didn't quit.

    Can't say the fans that were in attendance today quit because you can't quit something that you don't even start. Couldn't hear anyone from the beginning of the game and it lasted right through the end of the game. Saying it was half hearted would be inflating the statement. I couldn't believe some of the things I did hear though. Thinks like, penalty flags hitting the ground, chin straps being snapped and unsnapped, a player sneezing, the thud of football cleates hitting the turf. YEA that's how quiet that place was today. A few well timed, false starts against the redskins today could have made a difference. (Fred Miller anyone?). Not saying I would have been any better, just saying that it wasnít there, not in the least especially considering the comeback the Rams made last week. I guess all that is left from season ticket holders are the pats on the backs for sticking it out this deep into the season and of course the pining away about how loyal they have been since the late 1990's.

    Hell I canít even keep a roster in my head anymore there have been so goddamn many injuries. Yea all teams have injuries but how many teams have been forced into their 3rd string QB? How many teams have no starters left in the secondary? How many teams have been forced into an interim head coach? (Marriucci doesnít count because that was by choice). Need I mention the offensive line? I have been pissed off at the Rams over my life time but this sure the hell isnít one of those times. In fact I am proud of the way they have bounced back and fought. Who was it that exposed the coltís defense? If Bulger hadnít gone down in that game one hell of an argument could be made that the colts would have suffered...

    That was the worst performance....
    by xfactor28
    I have seen since the banks days. Not counting the Warner injury season. They had exactly what they wanted on offense, and couldnt produce. The defense couldnt stop a pop warner team. Pathetic. At this point I see this team falling apart at the seams.

    Start to Season Familiar - Can The Rams Turn it Around Again?
    by AvengerRam_old
    Three games.

    One closer than it should have been win against a team the Rams should beat.

    One loss in which the team looked really bad.

    One heartbreaking loss in a game the team should have won.

    Sound familiar? I could be talking about the start of 2003 or 2004, couldn't I? Category 1 could be the home game against San Fran last year, or the game against Arizona. Category 2 could be the Falcon game or the Giant game. Category 3 could be the Saints debacle or the one against the Seahawks last year.

    My optimistic side tells me that, if the Rams could turn it around last year, they could do it again this year.

    But I must admit I have my doubts.

    Last year, the Rams were able to overcome the mistakes that their high risk/high reward offense is likely to have with an opportunistic defense that lead the league in turnovers. This year, the Rams have gone over 12 quarters without forcing a turnover.

    Last year, the Rams had a more favorable schedule. This year, the second half of the season will be a beast.

    But I'm not giving up hope.

    I still think this team has enough talent to come together and make a playoff run. Well... at least I hope it does.
