Rams vs Cards

The Rams were not prepared for this game, at least in the 1st half. Many of us, myself included saw the Saints game as potentially pivotal in the Rams changing their fortunes. Unfortunately that hope was quickly dissolved as the Rams gave up 300+ yards and 21 points in the first half.

Once Matt Leinart replaced a concussed Kurt Warner the Rams suddenly looked competitive. Multiple chances inside the Cards 10 went unfulfilled and the Rams lost again. With news of Marc Bulger out 3-6 weeks with a broken tibia, this season gets more unbearable. 1-9 without your starting QB ensures some more long Sundays for Rams' fans.

Rams vs Saints

Boy that almost was a big upset.

Being born and raised in New Orleans, that was my personal Super Bowl. I am proud of the team that lacks experience and depth. Bulger looked better, as the line is coming together. Defense made key stops and forced turnovers. Unfortunately it comes down to a couple key plays that decided the outcome.

Key Play #1 Saints return the second half kickoff back for a TD.

Key Play#2 Amendola drops a pass that would have netted the Rams a bunch of yards.

Key Play #3 Dahl's running into the punter penalty. The Saints didn't score but were able to chew up more clock.

A step in the right direction for sure.

Rams vs Lions


OK I felt way too good with that win. Either way a win is a win and these guys deserved to win. They also deserved to beat the Redskins and Jags, and how much deifferent would we be looking at this team?

Quick thoughts:

Steven Jackson should be recognized nationally as an elite back.

Do the Rams run the same 8-10 offensive plays all game?

Kudos to that patchwork OL blocking for SJAX, and protecting Bulger.

Please draft a pass rushing DE. Think if we had Dwight Freeney or a young Leonard Little. Our secondary is doing a good job for a team that generates very little pass rush.

Congrats to Spags, the team and all the fans.
