  • Great to be back!

    I’m back and it feels F#%#’n GREAT! Long story short…when the Colts left Baltimore in 83, I needed a team. I went with the LA Rams (Dickerson). I stuck with them, despite their losing ways for a long time. When Trent Green went down in the preseason, I thought ok, business as usual. Who knew the “greatest show on turf” would be born. Imagine being called a band wagoner because you were a Rams fan??? It happened…from those that didn’t know me. Anyway, Baltimore got a team. I stuck with the Rams when the Ravens won the super bowl. I waited until the Ravens had a down turn. Then I figured, maybe I should hang with the home team. So I did, over the past few years, but something happened to me last weekend. The Rams almost beat the Saints! I felt it all come back in a giant wave. I love the F*#*ing RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It feels SO good to be back! GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!! :ram:

    Loyalty
    by slammin_ram
    Hey there, the question is ... what does it take to qualify as a Ram fanatic? I have 41 years as a loyal rams follower, is anyone else out there in this category? Over the years I have lived on the west coast, east coast, Asia, down on the border, and now I live in southern Texas, however, I am still a stanch Ram Fan....OK Now ... what are the other ingredients of a fanatic?

    RamDez breaks down the 2005 season.
    by RamDez
    Never one to break with tradition. I offer my 2005 season picks for your approval. I never apologise nor expect anything less than a full and frank discussion on the picks. Please feel free to post your thoughts if you disagree with any of them. If you are a fan of another team, hey sorry to hear that but again, feel free to give your polite view ;) I hope you enjoy the read.



    Game 1: Rams open the 2005 season away to the whiners.

    Candlestick or whatever its called these days, holds no surprises for the Rams. The newly upgraded whiners try their luck but fall short as the Rams hold them of in a typical season opener. The ClanRam tour starts off in a high note.
    Rams 28 – Whiners 16




    Game 2: The Rams travel to the much favoured Cardinals.

    Now we all know what happens to much favoured (for much favoured, read much “hyped”) teams these days. The Rams show the NFL that although Warner is still good, he does not make the grade in the West. In the second home opener, the Rams put the Cardinals to the sword in another close game. The ClanRam tour continues in its glorious course.
    Rams 21 – Cards 14




    Game 3: The third game of the season and the Rams have been involved in 2 home openers so far (at whiners and Cards) So now we open at our home and the Ed rocks with the ClanRam. The Titans come to play and drag up memories of their one yard loss to the Rams in our Superbowl. But the Rams have heard it all before and the luckless Titans fall to the unsheathed horns of a Rampant ClanRam support.
    Rams 34 – Titans 21




    Game 4: Rams travel to the Giants making 3 away games from 4 to start the season. No less the Rams continue to show that they are not to be underestimated. Mike Martz dances his way into the locker room after the Rams shut out the Gnats.

    Rams 17 – Giants 0



    Game 5: The Rams come home to face the hot head Seahawks. Once again Holmgren pus his vast experience to waste as he gets out coached by Martz who has been known to call him “his *****” Hawks flutter away to wonder what they have to do.

    Rams 28 – Seahawks 17



    Game 6: Rams travel to Indianapolis for theMonday night showdown. The Rams, true to form, don’t show up in the first half and then struggle for the remainder of the game. They still manage to close the gap but run out of time.

    Rams 28 – Colts 31



    Game 7: Rams come home with their tail between their legs and can not find their form. And it had to happen against the Saints. The Rams fall apart in a totally embarrassing fashion against an auld rival.

    Rams 14 – Saints 28



    Game 8: Rams with their tails firmly between their legs, travel to Jacksonville. In a lacklustre first half, the Ram fans begin to wonder if its...

    Take The Dresses Off Of Our Offense. Let Them Play!
    by JustSayin
    Maybe it's just me but I need to know if any other Rams fans were not only upset with the play calling but down right embarrassed at what can only be called cowardly offensive football. Sure it's ok to use the long handoff once in a while and try to break a tackle to get a first down but today the Rams ignored the 1st down marker especially on 3rd and 2, 3rd and 10, 3rd and 5. 3rd and I don't care you pick the number.

    Late in the game with the Rams facing an important 3rd and 2 they ran into a dilemma. Lets see how are we going to pass the ball and at the same time make sure we do not throw it all the way to the first down marker? Just run a pattern two yards deep in the backfield and I'll try and make a good throw. Making a first down was important but not as important as continuing to look like they do not have the ability or confidence to actually throw a meaningful forward pass.

    It's difficult to run a more gutless offense then the "West Coast Walsh" dink fest however the Rams have vaulted Walsh's dink attack in the stratosphere of "Air Coryell."

    The Cardinals defense played the Rams offense so tight it was embarrassing to any seasoned NFL fan. Cardinals had zero respect for the Rams deep threat of 7 or 8 yards down the field.

    Hey I have an idea lets run a single reverse down at the Cardinals end of the field. All the corners are playing us tight, they are crowding up to the line of scrimmage, and everyone weather they be in a comma or not knows that barring divine intervention your going to get stuffed while looking even sillier.

    Can't think of anyone else who would call such a play in that situation. We sure as hell are not going to do something stupid such as throw the ball down the field towards the first down marker and thus the endzone.

    Of course there are those who will say: "Hey we won didn't we?" There are those that will say: "It's a conservative low risk offense." To that I say: "Yea like the 2 yard dink pass that was intercepted for a TD.?"

    Is this it? Is this the offensive scheme the Rams toiled to put together in the off season?

    Does anyone really believe that such a cowardly approach to offensive football is going to win many games?

    Note to Fisher: Pull out the 2000 Superbowl tape, pop it in your VCR or Beta and take a look at the kind of offense that beat you.

    Winning enough games just to stay employed is not good enough.

    20 Post-Game Thoughts: ***SUPER BOWL EDITION***
    by AvengerRam_old
    1. Its great to see The Bus go out this way.

    2. Bill Cowher is also very deserving of finally winning the big one.

    3. Famous ball-droppers. J.S. – Jeremy Stevens… Jackie Smith… hmmmm… spooky.

    4. My MVP pick (not yet announced): Hines Ward.

    5. If I was a Seahawk fan, I have no doubt I’d be feeling that the refs took the game away from Seattle. I’d be wrong, but I have no doubt that I’d feel that way.

    6. Still a great season for Seattle. Hold your heads up, Seahawk fans. I know it hurts (I can still remember 2001), but just getting there IS an accomplishment.

    7. The fact that Super Bowl losers have tanked in the subsequent year in the last five doesn’t make me sad, though!

    8. Somebody who will indirectly benefit from this game – Penn State QB Michael Robinson. After watching Antuan Randel-El contribute to a championship team, someone will look at Robinson and see a player who can help a team.

    9. That Randel-El pass was outstanding…

    10. … reminded me of another trick play in a Super Bowl. Remember Lawrence McCutchen’s pass?

    11. Madison Avenue has just lost it. Not a single noteworthy commercial.

    12. I saw the Rolling Stones in concert 15 years ago. They were ancient then. They can still play, but if I never hear “Satisfaction” again in my life, I won’t be too upset.

    13. Casey Hampton’s not a guy I’ve watched much, but he’s quite a player.

    14. Big Ben’s performance: worst ever by a Super Bowl winning QB? Guess it doesn’t matter, though.

    15. Clock management by Seattle at end of first half… if that had been Mike Martz… oh, never mind.

    16. Did anyone have the Steelers as the preseason favorite?

    17. Steve Hutchinson and Rocky Bernard should be really upset with the team’s failure. I think they should move on and play for the Rams next year.

    18. This Steeler team is very good (obviously), but I don’t think we’re looking at the start of the next dynasty.
    19. Congrats to the NFC Champion Seahawks!

    20. Big Congrats to the NFL Champion Steelers!
