  • Are we done with the panic attacks?

    Last week it was the end of the Rams year, now we are tied for first place and going home for our opener. Still no real trends but the run defense did drop one spot to 4th in the league, still a hugh improvement.

    Looking ahead.

    Arizona at Seattle we will win here for sure.

    Dallas at San Francisco will the whiners keeping slipping yes.

    Re: Are we done with the panic attacks?

    Last week all they had to do was not stick their heads up their collective #[email protected]! and cruise to a win over a horrible team, but instead they had a bad loss that deserved criticism and revulsion. That's not panic, it was proper. This week they made up for it by winning on the road, so, yeah, the season is back to even. It would be better if they had a cushion instead, but it is what it is. I don't really pay attention to rankings after two games, but I agree with you that the Rams have looked good stuffing the run so far! Seattle held service at home with some help from Vick's hamstring which is too bad for the Rams, but hats off to them. They've had a tough opening schedule. Maybe they'll have a letdown now against AZ, they need to lose one they are supposed to win (like the Rams did in week 1) for the Rams to pull ahead.

      It may not be time to panic but we have a long way to go to become a serious threat in the playoffs. We need to come home take care of business regroup in the process and figure things out. The next time we go on the road we need to have a vast improvement. I would like to at the very least see a 3-3-road record for our remaining 6 road games. We were possibly one penalty away from 0-2 (that would have been tough). I am not worried as much about making the playoffs as much as what can we do if we make the playoffs and if its all road games in the playoffs that will be a huge advantage for the opposition.

          Let me see - the 2-14 SanFran team beats us.

          And then we barely beat the Cardinals - a team that got Schelacked in their first game to the tune of 42 points and their leading rusher was Kurt Warner.

          And then that SanFran team that has gotten some much better (new team we're told), they get clobbered in a laugher 42-3 or something stupid. It was 35-0 at HaLF>

          So, if you think we're really good at this point.. I suggest you are making a serious miscalculation.

          I have said it, and I said it in PRE-SEASON (I can pull the posts if you don't believe it) that the FIRST, BEST test will be the New York Giants.

          I will be claiming King of the Hill status when we beat a good team. That hasn't happened yet.

            I never said we are a great team at this point, nor did I say lets clean house and start over after one game. Lets get over losing one game against the whiners. As Marc said we could easily be 2-0 or 0-2. This is the NFL it’s not easy to win on the road and what a team did last year is not necessary what they will do this year. Lets not forget when we where a losing team and had the record to prove it and went to the SB and won it, so I don’t give too much weight to what a team did last year. I think every game is one you can lose.

              If you are expecting a team to be a potential super bowl contender wouldn’t you expect them to be top 5 in all the NFL out of 32 teams and wouldn’t that be a great team. If you don’t think we are great now wouldn’t you start worrying if that was your expectations?
              , nor did I say lets clean house and start over after one game.
              I agree, I don’t think I heard any ones point of view change based on one game.
              Lets get over losing one game against the whiners.
              We are over it you are the one bringing the thread back to life. The fact is it was a huge loss that most likely will cost us home field advantage in a playoff game. That’s assuming we make it. We have 14 more games and should spend no more time on this loss.
              As Marc said we could easily be 2-0 or 0-2.
              I wonder how many great QBs talk that way?
              If he thinks that after seeing what the other two teams that played AZ and SF did to them then he is not talking like a winner. Because a winner that believes he has a chance to go to the Super Bowl would not be talking about being 0-2 to two teams that may not even make the playoffs.
              This is the NFL it’s not easy to win on the road and what a team did last year is not necessary what they will do this year.

              It may not be easy to win on the road but we played against two of our easier opponents on the road. If you don’t give much wait to last year what about this year. AZ and SF did not look good against their only other opponents.
              I think every game is one you can lose.
              True, But if you expect to be a Super Bowl team you should go in thinking you can win every game.

                To me, it's scary that we could easily be 0-2 (Bulger's words) against the SanNiners and Cardinals.

                I don't root and follow the team and read draft reports for us to be 8-8. With Talent like Bulger, Pace, Little, Jackson, Faulk, Bruce, Holt, Curtis, and 3 number 1's on the DEF Line - playing 500 ball is no victory.

                  We haven't played our first home game yet and we are 1-1 in the conference. The Rams avenged an embarrassing loss on the road last year at Arizona this week. The Rams are the last team (well, outside of New Orleans) to play a home game. The panic attacks can start if the Titans blow us out, I'll be the first one here. However, from this DEFENSIVE perspective, I like where we are now.

                      Any of them that have ANY sense of reality would say the same thing. The Rams could have easily been 2-0 or 0-2. Bulger tends to be a straight shooter in his interviews, so why would anybody want him to say anything else. I doubt he wanted to be 2-0 any less than we wanted him to be 2-0, but he's honest enough to know that EITHER game COULD have gone EITHER way.
                      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                        Don't get me wrong I have not given up on the season and never will until we are eliminated mathematically from the playoffs or lose in the playoffs. However I played on a winning basketball team that was undefeated. That does not qualify me for anything. But I still believe that great teams have the same type attitude we had. We played every game as hard as we could we averaged beating our opponents by 30 points per game we beat one team 107-27 by 80 points. We were not pleased when we won by 10 points if we did not play good as a team. We strived for Max Q as Martz would say and that’s what I expect from Marc Bulger is to have that killer instinct to try and achieve Max Q and if they don’t play good as a team I don’t want to hear we could easily be 0-2. I want to hear we did not play good we should have beaten them and we should be 2-0 right now. We have to pull together as a team and win these games like we are capable of. That’s what I would expect from a winner.

                        Marc is the leader of our offense and he is saying we could easily be 0-2 right now. Leaders don’t normally tell their people how bad they could have failed they normally tell their people how much better they are then their performance showed. To reach the top you need to look up the mountain not down the mountain. I still think Marc is a good QB but I don’t like his statement or approach to these losses. As the QB he needs to be the leader on offense.

                        As for are we done with the panic attacks? I am because I cant change anything but I hope the team is not I hope they feel a sense of urgency to dramatically improve and not be complacent or think things are fixed when they squeaked out a game they should have won easily.

                            Everyone lost in our division and we couldn't capitalize. Very dis heartening. This team has a problem closing games. We could have gained a game on the hawks. But instead we are in the same boat we where yesterday.

                            3 Games upcoming on the Road...... Scary

                            by jjigga3000
                            Last year we had lost all hope of doing anything after the 4th game of the season. The Rams weren't competitive or competent. This year is a whole different beast. We're two games out of first place and have the chance to enter the bi-week at .500. I know for a fact not many people in this forum believed or even thought that this would be possible. The fact that we're getting mad and upset that we lost a gave says something, with a couple of plays going our way, and I do mean a couple we could be 6-1. Our record really doesn't give a direct detail of who and what kind of team this is.

                            So we have many reasons to be excited about the state of the Rams, because we know we now have a competitive team. Look at the second half of the season, I don't see why we can't make a run for the playoffs. First off if we beat Seattle at home, then we have the tie breaker against them, in the case of a tie. and I see no reason why we can't because i think we match up well against them. of the rest of the 8 teams we face including the Cardiac Kats, I think it's possible we could go 7-2 or 6-3. The only teams I see us having a problem with are the Falcons, and Saints. I see us finishing 9-7, and this year I think that's good enough to make the playoffs. Reason's to be hopeful fellas.

                            For those who don't think so, I really could care less what you think, because even with our record this team has been very enjoyable to watch. Yeah it's painful to loose close games like we have. But hey at least we were close and considering where we came from as a team. I'll take that anyday. All this team is doing is learning how to win. We'll have more close games like that this year, believe me, and guess what we will win them.

                            The time to win is now!
                            by Guam rammer
                            With a win @ Denver and a surprising loss to SF we need to win our next 3 games against the Cards (1-1), lions
                            (0-2) and packers (0-2). Awe heck! it'd be nice to win all our games.
                            Our next 5 opponents after the above said will be Seattle, SD, KC, Seattle and Carolina. All are definately contenders for something in this league.
                            If we go into the Seattle game in week 6 @ 4-1, We'll be in good condition to battle for a share of the top spot of our division.
                            Arizona has tough contests against Atlanta, KC, and Chicago after this week, and SF also has tough games against philly, and KC comming up.
                            We will need the momentum going into the Seattle game, and 4-1 will be a great confidence booster. If we come
                            away with a win at Seattle and are at 5-1, we won't be out of the thick because then everyone will focus their attention on us and our next 4 opponents are capable of punching us in the mouth!! and amongst those 4 we get Seattle again, this time on their turf.
                            Seattles next 2 games are @ home against the Giants, and away against the Bears. They could come away w/ 2 wins, a win and a loss , or 2 losses(wishful). Then they get a bye week to rest up and plan against us. If the Rams are gonna to make a move, i think this time now is critical because The middle of our season looks brutal.
                            Planning ahead in the NFL isnt always a good thing and i'll admit i had us Destroying the 9ers last week, but who knows, anything can happen. Lets just hope it isnt 1-4.
                            I know, i know, 1 game at a time and the cards won't be an easy task but THESE 3 GAMES ARE CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF OUR TEAM!!

                            Take it or leave it: The rams winning this Sunday against the CowGirls will salvage their season?
                            If you like that state take it if not state leave it.

                            Before you read anything else we all knew this first half of the schedule at the begginning of the season was going to be murderous and our impressions have proven right. The team's we are going to start playing this last half will give us alot higher chances to start getting W's.

                            Ok I been thinking this the last week or so and have thought that this week will be our first win of the season. I was realistic last week and knew the defending champs were going to beat us but Dallas is perfect for a beat down and our first win since we are hungry for our first win. We played dam good against the Packers considering all things and our opponent and if that same intensity is there we will pick up a W in Dallas.

                            If and a big IF we do win then after NO we have 8 games we can realistcally win which at the very best and win out the rest of the year we will be 9-8. I'm thinking that we will lose one or two of those last 8 games and finish 7-9 or 8-8 And at the very least have a shot at the NFC West ONLY if we can be the Whiners twice.
