Get It Over With

Well, don't know about anyone else, but I do know that Santa's not going to be leaving any wins under this Rams Christmas tree in a few days. I see in fact nothing but losing out for this season and just getting the heck out of dodge for the rest of the year and the first part of the 2012, if I were the Rams.

In fact that should be the top of their list is "Please get me somewhere safe and do it quick! So I can recoup from this horrendous nightmare of a football season!"

You can read more lamenting over on our website if you can handle it.

Merry Christmas

Let's Not Forget

Even though it's still football season and it's been a dreadful one to say the least when it comes to the Rams, we can't allow football to become so important that we forget the true meaning of this time of year.

Let's not forget that we need to open our hearts up to the true spirit of this season and care for one another, be kind to one another, even if that means trying to keep our feelings of dislike or discomfort about someone to ourselves. It's a time for love and compassion and for giving of  yourself and not just in gifts. A smile, a hug, even a simple hello might be just the gift that person sitting next to you has needed all year long.

So let us put aside our feelings of disgust, disdain and disappointment with regards to our team and allow the true spirit of this time of year warm our hearts.

God Bless all of you and have a Joyous and Merry Christmas!

As If 26-0 and Going 2-10 Wasn't Bad Enough....

It is now been reported that A.J. Feeley broke his thumb on his throwing hand during the game on Sunday. This means he cannot play on Monday and the status of Bradford is very iffy because they are afraid of doing some really bad damage to him and ruining his future as a player.

I really didn't think it could get any worse, seriously, if I wasn't so shocked by all of this I'd be laughing because I would be thinking that only Hollywood could come up with such an unbelievable script!

If you look on their depth chart, right now, you will see there is no 3rd QB listed! Un-freakin believable! So now what?

Like the poster the Rams put up in their locker room? Hmmmmm, not helping much. But hey, at least they are losing together as a team.

Read more of what I have to say about where we are right now over on our website.

It Could Be Worse

Grading Out and The Golden Heart Award

Yep, you guessed it, the grades have been handed out for that wonderful shout out we were a party to. And believe it or not, we did hand out the Golden Heart Award for this week. So make sure to go check out who got it.

Ready for the Season to Be Over?

There is no doubt in my mind that Sam Bradford is probably anxiously awaiting for the end of this season. This season is going to not only have him limping off in shambles but his mental health is damaged and scared as well.

There's no doubt that he will be going off home and away from this organization truly doubting himself and whether or not he has what it takes to be in the NFL. If not, he'll at least be wondering whether or not he's cut out to be a glutton for punishment and continue to play for this team!

See what LSURAM has to say this week about the state of our Rams by going over and visiting our website.

The Future Seems Like We've Seen It Before

Grading Out

Well, the team has been graded and quite frankly it seems like we could just leave the grades pretty much the same every week, especially at coaching.

Grading Out

We did not hand out the Golden Heart Award this week, as hard as we tried to find someone, we just couldn't find that special someone that made that little extra push during the game, win or lose. But hey, if you have someone in mind, make sure to go over to the site and submit their name.

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

What more needs to be said than what Brandon Lloyd says right here in the fourth quarter?

Think he's wishing he'd never come to St. Louis let alone heard of the place right now? This guy's got talent but what can you do with it when the team as a whole stoops to even lower levels to figure out how you can continue to lose games.

When it comes to football, right now during a time when we all are suppose to be counting our blessings, the Rams probably have nothing at all to be thankful for as a team. Truly a sad state they find themselves in.

Read more over on our website if you have the strength as a fan to do so.

Things to Be Thankful For


Grading Out and Golden Heart

Well the grades have been issued and I'm sure you can guess they didn't do all that well. Oh, and yes, did manage to offer up a GH for this week.

We Win a Squeaker

Well, pretty much what killed the Rams last week in their loss against the Cardinals when the kicking game. The Browns are not a good team, just like the Rams and it was luck this time that was on our side and not the side of the enemy. Now that's something novel having the luck roll our way. Just goes to show you that we're not the only team out there that can't get any breaks.

Really not much to be proud of in this game since it was against an opponent for arguments sake are pretty much our mirror image in the AFC. Squeaking it out by one point is intense if it's between two powerhouse teams slugging it out, but when it's too bad teams, well quite frankly it's not all that impressive.

Don't get me wrong, I'll take the win, however, our offense isn't showing much power yet and we are now going into week 11.

Please check out what BeaverRam has to say about this week's game over on our website.

Brown and Out

Another One Down for the Count

Gone, just like that another receiver! Greg Salas, who was turning out to be a fine young rookie receiver is now gone with with a broken leg for the season! They just drop like flies on this team! Is there some sort of receiver curse on this team?! By the injuries that keep happening you might start thinking that! Now Clayton and Alexander must return and fill in all the gaping holes! But it almost seems senseless however when it would be coming back to a losing cause!

Again the Rams couldn't pull it off. If it's not one unit messing up it's another one. Can't seem to get all the different units to play together as a whole.

Don't forget to go check out my website piece for this week.

Just Like That the Bubble Burst

Grading Out and the Golden Heart

Well the grades are in and yes the Golden Heart has been awarded for this week. Don't forget, there is a form on the website where you can grade the team yourself and pick your own GH winner and we will gladly put them on the website for others to see.

Was it the Uniforms?

Don't you just love the old uniforms? Brings back good memories and for a brief period of time on this past Sunday, we witnessed something remarkable. Not only were the Rams wearing the beloved colors that walked away with a Super Bowl win, but they won their first game of the season in those colors!

Was it the uniforms? Was it the Cardinals World Series win? Was it the unwillingness of SJ39 to sit down and watch the team implode one more time and lose? Whatever it was, where has this team been all year?!

Whatever the reason for such an impressive win, I still put a bid in for the Rams going back to their old colors. There's just something really special about them.

Read what LSURAM has to say this week about what we all witnessed.

Turning Point?

Grading Out and Golden Heart Award

Wow, what a game and because of it, the grades this time around are pleasing to the eyes and were an awful lot of fun to dish out! There also were so many fine performances in this game that it made it just too hard to hand out just one GH for this week.

Photos and Video Highlights

Well, we did say that we wouldn't waste our time on photos for every loss the Rams have given us so far this year. We did however, promise we would when they won, so that's what we've done.

Leave it to the Rams

To make a nobody, what was his name again? The "up to this point unproductive, DeMarco Murray" as stated in the Post Dispatch, a super star running back. To think the Rams allowed him to surpass both Tony Dorsett and Emmitt Smith in yardage in one game. No doubt those players are feeling a little slighted about right now, that they weren't given the luxury of playing against the front seven of the Rams when they had to work their tails off to get every yard they both earned!

DeMarco Murray, who? Totally unheard of until October 23, 2011. Sure hope the Cowboys don't weigh his recent success as a milestone in his career, because I'm afraid if they do that, they'll be letting their team down. The Rams are not the measuring stick of a good running back. Enjoy it while you can Murray because you're not going to see another day like that one again, in a very long time, if ever!

I get to rant a lot this week. Here, Patti's Ramblings and it was my turn to write the website article. Oh joy for me! You can check out my website article below.

Murray Who?

The Grades Have Been Dished Out

Well of course the team has been graded. Gets easier each week too. Pretty soon, we won't even have to change any of the grades or comments, it's just the same old same old.

Ground Hogs Day

I'm sure you've all seen Ground Hogs Day, the movie about how the guy kept waking up and repeating his day over and over and over again. Well, quite frankly, that is exactly what the game this week reminded me of.

Every time the Rams would get to 3rd and whatever, it was the same old thing over and over and over again. A penalty, or some other bonehead mistake would kill the drive, over and over and over again. Insane. What a futile season this is turning out to be.

Check and see what BeaverRam has to say about the latest debacle!

Lloyd to the Rescue? No Way!

Grading Out and the Golden Heart Award

Well the team has been graded and yadda, yadda, pretty much the same old thing. Don't forget to go over and offer up your grades and your opinions and we'll make sure they are posted for everyone to see on the website. Oh, and yes, we were able to squeeze out an award for the Golden Heart Player.

Don't forget that you also can pick your own player for the GH as well.

No Photos

In case you are wondering why there have been no photos or slide shows so far on the season, it's because there just hasn't been anything worth including. After all who wants to be continually reminded of how lousy the team is by rubbing it in our faces with pictures to remind us each week. Maybe when they win a game we might put time and effort into making a slide show, but until that day, it's not going to happen.

There is Still Hope on the Horizon However....

The 0-6 St. Louis Rams aren’t going to sit on their hands the rest of the way.
But Rams’ faithful have to hope the club doesn’t allow offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to have too much input. Clearly, McDaniels gets his guy now, though. The NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that St. Louis is finalizing a trade with the Denver Broncos to bring Brandon Lloyd(notes) in. He flourished playing under McDaniels in Denver.
Details of the deal aren’t known yet, but the Broncos have been actively working to ship out Lloyd. The Denver Post reported last week he was on the trading block. The San Francisco 49ers reportedly showed interest.

Goat of the Week

Well we have the Golden Heart Player of the Week, we might as well have a Goat of the Week as well. This would be what you give out to the biggest idiot or fool on the team for the week and that dubious honor would be bestowed upon......drum roll please.......

Mike Sims-Walker

Who else? Oh sure there might be a couple more you might want to include, but his antics rockets him right to the top. A veteran who is guilty of more than half of the 8 dropped passes (he was thrown to 6 times and he dropped 5) simply can't escape being the Goat of the Week! Totally unacceptable and unforgivable play from a veteran wide receiver.

For a performance like that I'd have to bench him if I were the HC. There would be no discussion about it. You don't perform well on your own job you generally get fired so, benching someone is a slap on the hand if you ask me.

Comment about the Skins: I hope the two players that nearly tore of Austin Pettis' head are fined for those dirty hits! Both were totally uncalled for and were intentional. Unacceptable behavior for anyone.

Going Into the Bye

Just like the team, we are taking the week off. The team needs it, we need it, you need it! We will return after the Packers game.

No matter what the outcome, we as Rams fans need to stick together and as hard as it might be a lot of times we need to back our team. A lot easier for those who have followed them for so long that it's just second nature to continue. But all Rams fans young and old alike, keep it together and hang in there. Remember, we are all in this together!

There is a God

I say that there is a God because on Sunday He showed me His mercy and had me not being able to watch the game on Sunday. Instead I was heading a fundraiser at my church for the people of Joplin, MO. All I can say is "Thank you God for keeping me away from such misery."

Wow 0-2

0-2 not exactly what I was expecting for the new season! I was really thinking we'd be 1-1. Really not all that much to ask, I did think 2-0 was far too much to ask however. Kind of scary seeing that they still seem to be a little bit allergic to the red zone again this year.

4-0 Pre-Season

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know that the pre-season means absolutely nothing, but I don't think that you want to tell the Rams that right now. They have the taste of 4 wins in their mouth and I think they love the strong flavor it gives them to want more. I think this was a wonderful way for the team to enter into the regular season! Besides it's a great boost for them to know that this was also the first time they've gone 4-0 in the pre-season since 1979. And remember, that was the other year they went to the Super Bowl. Way to go Rams, looks like you're headed in the right direction!

3-0 Start

Pre-Season or not, a 3-0 start and against good teams is a great way to go into the 2011 season. It's got to be a confidence builder for the team as well as the fans. It's a nice feeling to see the starters show that the lockout didn't affect their ability to come out and look like they are ready to play some football!

Bradford has already shown that he's is not going to have any of those 2nd year issues a lot of young QB's get after a fine rookie performance. In fact it looks more like he's already  been in the league for several years now, especially when it comes to his ability to be a leader. If any time got their wish fulfilled in the need of a team leader, it's the Rams with Sam Bradford.
