A very nice percent of respondents from our league-wide FanPulse question this week said the Los Angeles Rams are the best team in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs, the only other undefeated team, picking up 31% of the vote.
I don’t really see anything surprising. The Rams’ offense is marvelous. The team is 5-0, and just about every fan base is wondering who the next Sean McVay is.
If anything, it’s just a good reminder that we’re far removed from 14 consecutive losing seasons.
Bask in the glow, kids.
- Odds: Rams 7 point favorites over Denver Broncos
- Turf Show Times FanPulse: Rams by 9
- Mile High Report FanPulse: Rams by 14
A bit of a weird factor here that while Rams fans are understandably confident about the state of affairs (again hitting 100% this week in our FanPulse vote), Broncos fans are apoplectic. Denver as a franchise has been extremely successful over the last 40 years building up a huge fan base that isn’t very used to losing. After a 5-11 season in 2017 and a 2-3 start to this year, Broncos fans are pretty upset coming off of an embarrassing effort against the New York Jets. While Rams fans’ confidence is riding high, Broncos fans’ confidence has plummeted:
From 93% to 4%...whew.
Maybe more interesting is how they spread out the blame for the current state of affairs:
Consider how different that is from Dallas Cowboys fans and how they see the responsibility shared:
In the end, FanPulse is telling us what we already know...
It’s a good time to be a Rams fans right now.
