  • I thought those trolls gave up or got shown the door. lol. That one seemed to be high on the Ogletree and the new safety bandwagon though. I hear they didn't impress.

  • Rams to the playoffs over us? Not gonna happen. If our last preseason game is the rule and not the exception (and I am pretty sure it is), by the time the regular season begins OUR Bradford will already be a better player at his position than your Bradford is at his.


    And saying that about a starting QB VS a backup (only because our depth is so great) LB, well, good luck with your chances st.louis...

  • I am starting to think the Cardinals will finish ahead of the Rams for third in the division. The Cardinals first team offense looked pretty dam good in their preseason game and I think Bruce Arians is a good coach. They could surprise people this year.

    I agree, with the caveat that preseason can be either meaningful, or a mirage. Palmer throwing to Fitz, Roberts, and Floyd looked really good. I also was surprised to learn Arizona TE Housler led the NFC west in receptions last season, the TD's were lacking from TE for them though, well TD's were lacking in general. I only wonder about their running game at this point but they at least made me notice them a bit more after that game.

  • One word folks -PRESEASON. It means very little. The Rams lost their preseason opener last year 38-3 to the Colts. I am personally not worried at all. I am sure our game was a lot like the Seahawks game in that both offense and defense was very bland and vanilla, with almost no game planning. Hell the Rams 1st string dline played 1 series.

    Just remember this, 2 years ago when the Rams went 2-14, the Rams went 4-0 in the preseason and the year the Colts went to the Super Bowl, they went 0-4. Outcomes of preseason mean nothing

    True about pre season, but this is more of a reply to OP's statement and getting blasted by Bernie now and he has not been back, also the fact that he had been promoting a few players as best in the west types.

  • Like Ogletree Austin and TJ McDonald being immediate world beaters. Maybe he'll wait until the the third preseason game at least next time.

  • From what I've read the OP has been banned for few days now. Don't blame the moderator as he was obviously trolling.

    Rams didn't look very good during preseason game one, but they looked better than they did last year when they lost to the Colts 38-3.

  • Let's be honest, even with all my thoughts on the Rams, they got destroyed by the Browns. Offensively, defensively and special teams. It was the most one sided game I saw in the first week of preseason, (and I've watched all but 2 games).

    :lol:

    This post makes me laugh - you make it seem that since the Rams were beat by the Browns by eight points AT Cleveland in the first PRESEASON game that the Rams will suck this year. As I pointed above, the Rams lost 38-3 to the Colts last year in the first preseason game too - was the season over then too?

    Also, you said that this was the most lopsided game you watched, but I guess you missed Arizona shut out Green Bay, Houston win by 14, Miami win by 24, Cincinnati win by 24, Buffalo win by 24, and the Ravens win by 28 as well?

    I'm not talking about the points, I'm talking about the total lethargic lack of execution in every phase. Hey, I was a believer in the Rams until I saw that horrid display. I will watch all the preseason games, so I'm willing to change my opinion.

    We will have to agree to disagree, especially on offense - I thought the first team offense looked good, especially Bradford. The first drive was stalled by an Isaiah Pead fumble at the Browns 30 yard line - the drive started at the Rams 17 I believe. The next series was a 3 and out, so I will give you the benefit there. The last series for the first team O ended in a TD, including a 50+ yard pass to Chris Givens.

    Special teams - on the punt return, the field judge missed a blantant holding call (hey its preseason too for the officials) that sprung the punt returner free, but having said that, there is no reason to give up a 80+ yard return. Our kicker Greg Zuerlein connected for two 50+ field goals, so a good positivity there as well.

    Defense- The defense was very basic and very vanilla. Missed tackle, no pass rush, and the inability to get off the field on 3rd downs are a concern for the 1st team defense.

    Overall though, I disagree that the Rams were "total lethargic lack of execution in every phase". Defense I will agree with you - offense and special teams, not so much

  • Obviously taking preseason game 1 with a grain of salt, but I thought the Rams looked like the worst team in the division...

    SF - starts looked good, backups pretty bad
    SEA - starts not so good, but backups looked really good
    ARI - Carson looks lightyears ahead of whoever was QBing for them last year, defense should be stout
    STL - other than a nice long completion to Givens, just not impressed on either side of the ball for their game.

    He's a big part of it. Every year its the same thing with him. He needs more weapons, more playmakers. He has some of the fastest guys on his team and pretty decent TE. Wasn't Kendricks supposed to be a star too? Maybe they just don't know how to use Cook and Kendricks

  • They had better pray that the college QB crop is strong come April. The Rams will be well placed to get one with 2 very high 1st round picks, but with Jax, Cleveland, Tampa, Minnesota, and possibly Arizona, Oakland and even Philly and Cincy all having a degree of urgency at the position it may still be difficult to acquire a good one. Maybe Seattle should try to extend Tarvaris right now...might be able to get a couple of high draft picks for him in the off season!

  • In my opinion the Rams are in trouble for a long time. That organization needs to be gutted from top to bottom. Coaches, most players, just about everything needs to go.

    Bradford will never be good in any system, but he is only a part. There are probably about a dozen players worth keeping, backups and starters, the rest need to go.

    If they could do a complete overhaul similar to what we have had, they could start to resemble a football team in probably three or four years. They need to blow it all up though, from the top down. Fisher would be the first person I would get rid of just to make a statement that being mediocre year after year will not be tolerated.

  • The Rams are quite possibly the worst team in the NFL. It is not just the lack of a running game. Bradford is terrible, throws too hard and flat no matter what the situation. The defense is no better, the front is a joke except for rushing the passer, the secondary might as well just stay sitting on the bench.

    That team is bad from the top down.

    Scoreless in the first, he has to hit this against the 9ers. force them into react mode, set the tone, give the D some breathing room, hell force SF to unstack the box and respect your arm.

    They walked away with 3 and never challenged again. Yes a better run game could have won them the game in spite of Bradford missing this and plenty of other open receivers. A better QB could have set up the run by burning a gimme blown coverage like that and gone onto win as well.

    Bradford deserves the criticism. Sure the run game could have bailed him out, but he did nothing to unstack the box.
