Rams vs Bills

Happy trails Scott Linehan.....

Quick thoughts:

If this team has suffered from a lack of leadership and motivation from the head coach position that will change under Jim Haslett. I understand the concern over the defenses performance but this guy is a talented head coach. I witnessed him lead a team far less talented than this Rams team to the playoffs in New Orleans.

As I have stated the Rams have far more problems than the head coach, but Halsett in my opinion is much better than Linehan.

Welcome back Marc Bulger....should have never been thrown under the bus

Get the Fahkir back here.....think #34 will be back soon in horns

Ram On!

Rams vs Seahawks

At this point there is simply not much to say anymore in regards to the state of the Rams. They are not competitive for four quarters, lack leadership, and are not remotely enjoyable to watch.

Many reports including SI's Peter King have stated that Chip Rosenbloom will sell the team by the end of the season. So what this means is that until that occurs you may or may not have some coaching changes but the Rams brass will remain the same until the team is sold.

Bulger has been benched in favor of Trent Green.
- This is such a not seeing the big picture kind of move. Peyton Manning could be behind this line and look terrible.

The big picture is that the powers that be haven't done a good job selecting talent, and the coaches have not gotten all they can out of the players they have. Anything less than sweeping changes in all facets of this organization will not rectify what ails this team on Sundays.

Ram On!

Rams vs Giants

Not to beat a dead horse, but this team needs revision from the top down. Many fans are calling for Linehan's job, and justifiably so, but we have gone through the coaching change. Rewind a few years when most of Ram Nation was convinced the only thing holding back our beloved team was Mike Martz. The excessive timeouts, the risky plays, and the smug demeanor he had on the sidelines. At least it was fun watching Rams football then.

Bad drafts, worse free agent pick-ups, and love affairs with current starters past their prime have this franchise reeling. You could bring in any coach, but unless that coach made all the decisions player-wise you would have similar results. Until Jay Zygmunt retires/gets fired all players must get his approval. That is probelm #1, and until that changes welcome back to the 90's.

The current hierarchy is killing this once proud franchise. Many felt Martz's ego was his undoing, his ego now looks like nothing compared to Zygmunt & Shaw.

Rams vs Eagles

Wow these games are for real, and we are asleep at the beginning of the season again.

I don't want to overreact to one game, but all preseason we heard the Rams preach that a strong start to the season was the only cure to erase the 07 debacle.

Well??? What was that? If in the 1st quarter of the 1st game an overweight sideline reporter claims your team has no passion.....well?

Why do other teams fly around and show enthusiasm, and our Rams look like every one's IT department at lunch?

I have been an avid player of Madden for years and this game reminded me of playing that game. Who else really scores on a 90 yard TD pass with under a minute before half? Not professionals.

Remember for the last 5 years I have said that it all comes from the ownership down. Where were Chip and his baby sister on the first real game as team owners? Probably where John Shaw Los Angeles.

Ownership, good pro football brass, PROVEN head coach, talented, passionate players , that is what builds championship teams.

Until that changes, remember fondly of the GSOT days.........

Ram On!
