At this point in the offseason, ANY Rams game looks like a good one. But let's face it, when the season starts we all know we're more geeked up for a chance to put the hurt on the 49ers compared to a tilt with the Raiders.
So, I'm throwing it out to you, oh gracious Rams fans, which game are you most looking forward to this season?
Mine? For me there's no question, it's Monday night, Week 6 at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
It's too early to start setting the over/under on that one, but the chance to exact a little revenge for last year's thrashing in front of the home crowd (on a Thursday night) ought to be worth a field goal at least. It's great when the Rams can win seven or eight games, pulling out a few surprises here and there and beating the lower rung teams.
But if the Rams want to really compete for something meaningful instead of another offseason of talking up a 7-9 team like it was the 1970s Rams, they're going to have to start winning big games against the toughest opponents in prime time.
So which game are you most looking forward to this year?
