Ok ok I'll admit it. I actually got caught up in the hype and started thinking we had a shot this season. I mean look at our division! The Bills and the Panthers would have a shot in our division this year so why not the Rams? The answer is plain and simple: Because it's the Rams. We underachieve, it's just what we do. We like to make people think we're rolling but then reality just has a way to creep back up on us. History is starting to repeat itself, I remember a couple of years ago when we got rid of Scott the worst coach we ever hired Linehan and got on that two game win streak, which was great cause we put a hurting on the Cowboys that year and had gotten rid of the dead weight. Then reality set in and we didn't win a game the rest of the season and almost pulled an 0-16 season last year. Spags, you need to start doing something bud!
Maybe we should start looking for a way to get Kurt Warner back on the squad and relive the 1999 or 2001 seasons all over again because today was just a horrible reminder that we are far from moving up the ladder. I mean Detroit?! For real....Detroit whooped the shit out of us? I was actually worried about the Rams losing this game, but I thought the score would have been like 27-20 at least. I mean the Lions defense is horrible, I think they actually rank lower than ours and today we made them look like the Baltimore Ravens D. How can we beat a team like Washington and Seattle....I mean we really whipped their asses and then turn around and get bitch slapped by Detroit? I know the Lions can run up the scoreboard, but they were 0-4 for a reason, because their D sucks! But I guess not as bad as we all thought. I think the Rams got caught up in their own hype all week and totally underestimated Detroit going into this game. Detroit looked like they were ready to play and they certainly proved it. We had no answer on defense and gave up each drive on third downs. And the only way we stopped big passes from happening was by creating penalties. Can someone in the secondary cover someone please? And where was our front line? They gave Shaun Hill all day to throw while on the other side poor Sam Bradford was running for his life. My whole point is that when things aren't working, it's time to switch it up, make adjustments, bring in other dudes and start dusting off the old playbooks and start making things happen. And then maybe tell your D to actually cover someone, cause when you can stop them on third down, you can usually get the ball back right after, someone up in St. Louis should take note of that. Instead we decide that running up the middle and calling the exact same plays over and over again will work to perfection. And let Shaun Hill keep throwing the ball downfield, eventually his arm will get tired and he's bound to throw a pick! Shh, just don't tell the other team our secrets!
All in all I know we're better than we played today, but this was just disgusting beyond belief. We looked like the 2009 Rams all over again. Granted, we've doubled our wins from last year, but are we stuck at two? A day like today gives a resounding yes, so lets just hope someone gave a pep talk up in St. Louis and now the Rams don't underestimate any team anymore. Let teams underestimate us, we'll have a shot then. Get it together boys!
