Today's game in my opinion, represents our season. If we win, we'll be 4-4 with a bye coming next week, allowing us to get healthy (as healthy as we can), and "maybe" we have an outside shot at .500 and this division.
if we lose, we head into the bye week at 3-5 and face a tough series of games ahead with no momentum, having lost 2 very winnable games in a row, and virtually no chance at the division title.
Even at 4-4, I believe we'll still have a tough time going .500 in the second half of the season due to some tough opponents, especially with our injuries and depth. Swear at me, cuss, whatever, but I can't help but feel that way.
BUT there is a small piece of me that says maybe we can run the table on division games and wipe out the niners, beat the seahags again, and pull out a win against the cards (who we could have beaten in week 1).. and maybe surprise the Saints who have been struggling lately... and go 9-7 or 10-6?
Frankly, as strange as this season has been, that wouldn't surprise me.
OK onto the links:
- Unless you've been living under a rock, or possibly hung over all week and haven't heard, DX had a knee injury at practice, and had surgery again (same left knee... yea).... that makes 5. Yea, I know, I know. I'm not saying anyting. Vent away in the comments.
- Even with our road woes, at least the fans are still buying tickets and supporting this team. Yep, another locally televised game. This has been a bright spot this season. We need the support!
Ike's jersey will be hung in the rafters Sunday. I can't say enough about you Issac Bruce.. you brought myself and all of us Rams fans so many great moments...
Here's my favorite Ike moment & you MUST WATCH... Around :30 in.. went up 21-3 on the niners, who we had lost 17 straight games against.
-> You want to see what LOVE for the Rams looks like? Look at 2:19 and again at 2:49. Ike, I was crying with you brother.. i really was.
