Hey everybody! Today the Rams are in practice preparing for my most hated NFL team, the Seattle Seahawks. The rivalry has become less hostile in the last few season, simply because the teams are not good anymore. That doesn't mean the game isn't important to the teams or the fan bases, and I expect a very competitive, hard fought game Sunday. On to the links.
In the weekly chat on stltoday.com Jim Thomas took some fan questions. I recommend reading the whole piece. Jim Thomas said this was the first 4th quarter comeback for Sam Bradford in his career. On questions dealing with how much the Rams have to do to save some people's jobs:
We don't have to decide this after nine games. Let's see what happens the rest of the way. Let's see how the Rams fare over these final seven games. Can the team eke out 2, 3, 4, more wins? Does Bradford and the offense show improvement. Do some of the silly mistakes and penalties start to disappear. Is the team commpetitive in losses? Then factor it all in and make a decision.
Mitch offered his take on the Rams Seahawks game.
KSDK.com had a good article about how much the Rams have suffered from injuries this season. Here's Spag's take on the injuries.
"Everybody's going through (injuries)," Spagnuolo said. "I don't know which teams have had more or less. I just know what we're battling with, and it's been a struggle. I credit the people that are going in. I credit the coaches for hanging in there. This is not easy.
"It's hard to get continuity and execution and smoothness when the parts are interchanging. Usually at this point in the year, you're kind of hitting that groove, and it's into November, but that's all right, we'll just battle through it. We'll get some of the guys back, and we'll keep plugging away."
That's all for today. Have a good one and GO RAMS!!
