Everybody needs to relax

First off let me say that I am very happy to see enthusiasm back with the Rams. The last 5 years have been tough, and there hasn't been anything to really root for other than the draft.

Second, everyone needs to just relax. We are 2-3. Sure, we could be 4-1 or 3-2 or whatever, but we aren't. Expectations I saw before the season was anywhere from 3 to 6 wins and people wanted to see improvement. Today was a tough loss for sure, but like Steven Jackson said after the game "Sometimes you just need a good old butt whoopin."

The 2010 Rams are starting on offense a rookie quarterback, left tackle and many other 2nd and 3rd year players. On defense is just about the same. We are one of top 5 youngest teams in the league, and it definitely shows. The one thing I wanted to see this year was a growth on both sides of the ball, and dammit so far I have. The offense has shown me the ability to put together drives and the main reason is Sam Bradford. Sure, he has struggled, and just like every other rookie quarterback in history, he has made mistakes but what has really been a treat has been his ability to really make this his team and show us that we have a bright bright future ahead of us. We have the makings of a really good offense and defense, we just have to be patient. We have our franchise QB, we have one of the best running backs in the game, our offensive line is solid and only will get better(and is staying healthy), and we have ton of wide receivers that can contribute in the future as solid options. On defense, we have an improving defensive line anchored by Long and Robbins and emerging rookie Selvie. Our linebackers are lead by Animal Jr, but we will need to upgrade our outside LB's. And the most pleasant surprise to me has been the secondary. Just brutally beaten up last year, Bartell and Fletcher have become reliable corners and have impressed me. Murphy shows flashes as well. 

 

All in all, too many people are quick to just ream this team, but you have to look at it from a body of work not just one game. This team is very young and is going to frustrate the hell out of us, but I myself is willing to stand by their side and watch this team that last year was 1-15 and like 2-14 the year before that evolve into a team that will contend for many NFC West titles and hopefully a Super Bowl in our future. 

 

Always try and take positives out of something, even when there might seem like there isn't.
