The Rams followed up the Week 12 decimation at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens delivering a beatdown of their own to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.

How did it affect fan confidence?

Not much.

The loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 was a gut-cruncher dropping confidence down to 10%. A win over the Chicago Bears a week later brought that up to 29%. Being bossed by Baltimore? Somehow up a point to 30%. And now with the takedown in Phoenix, 44% of Rams fans are confident in the direction of the team.

I do get the sense that Sunday night will have a make-or-break effect on confidence. A win and I could see confidence exploding. A loss and I’d assume collapse.

Three national questions this week:

Go Buffalo Bills! Suck it, New England Patriots!

Man, I’d love to know who that 20% or so would vote for here.

Nobody. Nobody is winning. Someone may come out on top, but they won’t be doing anything that looks like winning.

Thanks as always for those of you who voted, and those who didn’t please sign up so we can hear from you!
