We Looked Good

A good thing happened today. I watched a Rams football game and based upon their performance in this single game, I was not ashamed to say I was a Rams fan. If this was the first game of the season I would be feeling pretty good. Unfortunately, it is the sixth game of the season and we have lost all 6 games. I’m glad to see improvement for sure, but I’m sure bummed it took until the sixth game to happen.

The Rams lead for most of the game and it was great to see them apply pressure on the Jags QB for much of that time. During the 4th quarter, with the score 17-13, I had a bad feeling. The Jags began marching down the field. They were able to pick up large chunks of yardage at will and it became apparent to me that the Rams defense was just too tired. The fact that Jones-Drew was able to make that short burst for a touch down and a Jag lead didn’t surprise me, what pleasantly surprised me was the Rams response. In under 2 minutes, Marc Bulger threw for 69 yards and marched the Rams down field setting up a game tying field goal which sent the game into OT. It was really good to see the Rams, and Bulger, show some heart.

Bad news is that the Rams never regained possession of the ball. We could cuss and complain that the Rams need to learn how to close out a game. Personally, I think we need to learn how to walk before we run. Let’s take this mediocre moral victory and savor it. We can probably savor it until tomorrow when we realize that next week we are playing perhaps the best team in the NFL (the Indianapolis Colts.) Then we need to start praying for a miracle.

    did you see the same game I did??? The only more incredible story is the Titans…how they can go from so good to so shi…y. The Rams totally blow…you just can’t admit it.

  3. That was last week’s game. Thanks for keeping up. Last I remember the Rams barely lost that game in OT.

    The Rams do blow, but last week they played ok. Now today… that was pathetic.
