Well, HO HO HO! What a nice gift for the day after Xmas. For a half there, I thought I was going to have to buy a new TV because I was going to kick it in with my Santa boot. And then... I realized that I still had to go over to another family's party during halftime and I thought to myself, " Amp, it's just a football game. Enjoy your family. If it's meant to be, then it's meant to be." Sure enough, IT WAS! I showed up at my uncle's house and the Rams had a 1 point lead with the ball in the middle of the 3rd. I just relaxed and watched the Rams play decent football for the first time in about 10 to 12 quarters.
King Sam: It's been awhile since we have seen King Sam be KING SAM. Yesterday, when the chips were down, we saw KING SAM. Oh the future!
The DX 84 Streamline Jet: What happens when you throw to the DX 84 Streamline Jet? You win. Plain and simple. Can't emphasize enough how much he opens things up. Dear Pat Shurmur, GET DX IN SINGLE COVERAGE AND THROW TO HIM!
The D Line: They live again! These guys will be the #1 reason for our failure or success next week in SEA. You can not convince me otherwise.
Coach Spags: I don't know what you said during halftime, but, it worked. Say more things like that before next Sunday.
Maddening missed opportunities: The current thread of letting a team get back in a game that should be buried by the middle of the 2nd quarter continues to be the single biggest health risk in my life right now. By the way, I am a smoker. It still doesn't come close to what I feel blood-pressure wise when the Rams piss on all of the gifts and good fortune other teams to try to give them in the beginning of a foot ball game. Stop it! It's going to be the death of me!
Kevin Dockery: Straight up liability every time he's on the field. Needs to be treated for 3rd degree burns after every game. Yesterday was no different than any other Sunday.
Punt coverage: That was a big one at a bad time. Teddy Ginn barely changed direction. Ouchy. Better shore that up for Leon Washington or we will be in for a long night.
Mike Singletary: I have never seen a coach look so lost on the sidelines. Troy Smith deserved to be pissed. Who wants to play for a coach where no one has any idea what's going to happen to them at any minute? Obviously, the 49ers didn't. Thanks for the present Coach Ass-Waver (copyright VanRam)! You deconstructed a playoff caliber team with oodles of bonehead shit. Couldn't happen to a better team.
Well... we are playing meaningful football til the very end. We couldn't ask for anything more. Merry Christmas to all! And to all an awesome next Sunday NIght!
