Who Are These Guys?

Seriously, who the heck hog tied the Rams and stuffed them in their lockers during this game, because this really wasn't the same team we've grown accustomed to for pretty much the first half of the season! Really and truly who are these guys?!

My gosh, 6 sacks and 2 INT's one for 6 points! Now that is what you call a defense. They had one of the top QB's in the NFL totally confused and so flustered that by the end of the game you would have thought that it was Marc Bulger that had taken over the place of Drew Brees! Both Laurinaitis and Long were simply brutal! Let's not forget rookie Robert Quinn finally making his presence known with his first sack and a crucial blocked punt.

It's been so long since we won a game, it was like winning the Super Bowl! If the team can do this against a team whom many thought and still do think has a good shot at a run at the Super Bowl this year, why the heck can't they do this to the rest of the teams on their remaining schedule? With such a high like this, there should be enough gas in it for the team to pull strength from in coming weeks!

The offense sputtered quite a bit, especially in the beginning. Feeley simply couldn't seem to get on the same page as his receivers but thanks to the bruising and stubborn play of SJ39 with his 159 yards and two TD's the offense was finally able to pull itself up with it's bootstraps and do a halfway decent job by the end of the game.

Kudos to Jackson for putting his foot down over on the sidelines when it looked as if all the hard work was going to go down the toilet when the Rams started making stupid mistakes at crucial times of the game. Kudos for him jumping on the team and calling them out! Not only did it seem to inspire the offense but the defense as well! SJ39 truly showed his colors as this teams leader, there should be no doubt in anyone's mind after this game!

Let's hope the Rams can ride this win into Sun Devil Stadium come next week and hope they can take the same brutal play to the Cardinals and walk all over the desert birds.

Go Rams!

It Boggles the Mind

Just how terribly bad our beloved Rams are! I know that I'm totally confused and frustrated to the point of screaming at the top of my lungs from some mountain top! I mean, what is going on here?! How could players at this level, at this height of competition play so ineptly? It truly boggles the mind to no end!

Is every single player on this entire team that incredibly bad? Or is it something else that is at the heart of the disease that seems to be festering within the core of the team? Is coaching such a huge part of a teams body and soul that without a coaching staff that has true vision and the ability to make their team believe and see that vision, the team just doesn't exist on the same plain as the other teams in the NFL?

Well, I truly find it hard to believe that every single player on the team is this incredibly horrible, which of course leads me to the possibility that there is something terribly wrong with the coaching. As wonderful of virtues and ideas that Spags may have, and more power to him, I'm not seeing where the team is buying into what Spags is trying to sell. He's lost them somewhere a long the line and I think they are far to gone past the point of no return for them to ever find their way back.

If it's neither of these things then what the hell is it? Because it truly boggles the mind!

P.S. Note to Dallas. It might not be all that great of an idea to take stock in all of those 253 yards your unknown Murray made on October 23, 2011. Remember who he did it against. It's like going and betting on a horse that's never done anything before but suddenly sets a speed record racing again an old nag.

What a Nightmare

I really don't think that there are any words that can be said about just how horrible this entire season has been to this point. The Packers game is just another slap in the face and brutal reminder of just how horrible our poor Rams are.

Even Bradford seems to be already quickly regressing and doesn't even show any signs of greatness as he did in his rookie season when he was honored with the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. It's just utterly unbelievable how bad the team is. It's like none of them even know the simple fundamentals of the game.

At this point in time and how they've played so far, there is no way that team could even be able to beat a college team. In fact with some of the things they've been doing, it makes one wonder if they could even beat a high school team right now. About they only thing they might have in their favor would be size.

Sad, really sad.

Hope there is something that can be done to salvage the season but right now it would be nothing short of a miracle to make that happen. Maybe the return of Clayton will help, but he's not Superman.

What a Horrible Season

They say a picture is worth more than a 1,000 words or something like that. And this picture represents that saying to perfection.

Just looking at the picture nothing more needs to be said. It shows the complete destruction of this team and utter disappointment just in their postures and the looks on their faces.

It expresses defeat at the highest level.

What a horrible, horrible season we are having and after watching this game against the Redskins I don't see it improving any with the bye week leading into a game against the Packers in Lambeau Field. You got to be kidding right?

This loss and well from what I can tell the other losses really didn't have all that much to do with the talent of the other teams. It's the Rams who seem to continue to play more like on a high school level than anything else. In fact I've seen some high school teams play better, sorry to say. The proof is in the stats alone.

Just in the Redskins game alone there were:

7 sacks
9 bonehead penalties
8 dropped passes (5 of which were committed by Mike Sims-Walker) (3 of those dropped passes were TD throws!!! That's 21 points dropped! 21 points!!!! Right there in those 3 dropped TD opportunities we had the Skins beat!!)

Rams lead in penalties
Rams lead in dropped passes
Rams lead in missed tackles

Now those are some great stats to be #1 in!

Barring a miracle there is no way for this team to keep this ship from completely sinking. Too much damage has already been done. This keeps up, the promising career of Sam Bradford is going to go right down with this sinking ship as well and there won't be any way of resurrecting it. He's going to end up having wasted his talents and leaving the NFL a broken man, much like Marc Bulger. Something, anything, needs to be done now, not tomorrow or we're going to see an incredible talent be completely destroyed by the ineptitude of players that should know better!

There was however, one bright glimmer and that was rookie Austin Pettis when they finally put him in to receive. It was refreshing to finally see someone who could catch the ball and not drop it! Maybe they should bench Walkers sorry butt in favor of Pettis in week 5, he sure couldn't do any worse.
