    That was to Givens. We had been patiently waiting for them to connect on a deep pass ha. He nearly had another one later in the game diving for the ball on the left side.

    WARNER BOWL REVIEW

    The Rams applied the formula for beating Arizona. The Cardinals D is based on allowing the periodic big play but also generating turnovers. The Rams got two big plays, one of which lead to a TD and one of which was a TD, and didn't turn the ball over. Beating this team comes down to minimizing mistakes and maximizing opportunities; the Rams did both.

    Also the special teams game was huge. The Cardinals thrive off of scraping up hidden yardage, and the power+directional punting was able to dampen that. Also that one sequence of 5-yard penalty negating huge return, 5-yard penalty again, and then a pin inside the 10 was huge.

    How many US presidents have gone through office since the last time the Rams won a home game against Arizona? Sorry lol couldn't resist. Good game fellas.

    Looks to me like they are starring down the barrel of 1-5 and THEN they play Seattle.
    So better them than us eh?

    I'll tell you what you do remember and that was fricken Billy Sims! I saw some film on him and that karate kick leap blew my mind! What a great running back during the 1980's.

    Yep. Here's to a decade of Stafford vs Bradford in the playoffs :ww:



    I was born right around the time he blew out his knee so I never got to see him play.

    STL @ MIA REVIEW

    ·First off... I mean sheesh... I have to say it, and I'm sorry... but WTF was that creature standing behind Fisher @ 3:01 left to go in the 4th quarter?!?!?!?!

    ·There are going to be some "Why?" questions after any loss, but this is a question I had before the game even started: Obviously it was hot, it was Miami, and the Dolphins were wearing their whites. Why do the Rams wear the blue on blue? At least wear the white pants, no one is forcing you to wear the blue on blue...

    ·I had been noticing this year that the Dolphins in their home games liked to play the "Jack Ass" guitar rift after the opponent commits a penalty. And now I find out that if the opposing offense commits the penalty they actually do the backing-up "beep beep beep." Those guys have a sense of humor. My dad was looking around like "WTF did a forklift get in the living room?" Also they play a cartoonish "wawh wawh wawh wawawa..." after missed FGs...

    ·Is there any fallout from that feller who, for reasons unknown, did the following:
    (1) Over-the-shoulder catch on a kickoff
    (2) Upon dropping it, not letting the speedster grab it
    (3) Fumble it

    ·Raise your hand if you knew instantly it was going to be a tuck rule right when you saw that play? (Raises hand.)

    ·Also raise your other hand if you knew Gibson had that kind of catch in him.

    I can raise my hand three times...including the INC KR to Givens/Miller...didn't even have to think about it, BAD decision. Bad call. I can easily raise my hand regarding the TUCK RULE. If there is a TUCK RULE...it was that, and I said it immediately I also said immediately, that the Givens catch was not complete..

    GB @ STL Review

    ·My Lions never wear their whites at home. That is an abomination if you aren't a southern, warm-weather team. I could swear your Rams never ever did that either... but then again, I guess you figured you'd let the Packers wear their greens since it was basically their crowd... I know, sorry, that was below the Discount Doublecheck belt.

    ·My dad was complaining that the Rams DEs were getting held sort of like choke holds all game long, flailing their arms around like, "Hello? Refs?" I can relate... I deal with that BS all the time playing this team, that is truly 95% of their "Lamebeau Magic."

    ·Zürlein got his confidence back it seems.

    ·I think a bad play really went unnoticed. Here's what I saw, let me know what you guys think:

    3rd down, STL driving, GB has 2 timeouts, end of the first half. Bradford decides to tuck the ball and run. He has no chance of getting the first down. Instead of sliding in bounds and keeping the clock running or forcing GB to use a timeout, he runs out of bounds. I believe Zürlein made his FG and the Packers drove at the end of the half and had enough time to attempt a FG which they would miss.

    So it was ultimately a non-factor and went unnoticed but I think it's the franchise QB's job not only to do his job on offense but also to help his defense. Franchise QBs are judged on Ws and Ls.

    Why aren't you in class?

    IMO pooty, this game was a series of brain farts and that we played in road whites because we were trying AS an organization to get ready for a trip to England CAN'T be ignored.
    JMO brainfarts are a product of lack of focus, it doesn't take much to throw a young team off their A game, a coaching staff either.
    Growing pains? maybe, but regardless it's an L and point taken on Sam going OOB, little things in a game of inches.

    The sliding in bounds wouldn't have mattered even if the packers used a time out, that's not a thing to worry about. It's just another "thing" to judge Bradford on that means nothing. Packers didn't need two timeouts to get into field goal range, and even then they missed. Bradford did the right thing to just get out of bounds instead of slide and have some linebacker jump on him like they always do. Then he's laying there with his eye closed and a big chunk of turf in his mask.

    Or maybe someone gets flagged for a personal foul and we get a first down.
    I agree with poot here ,keep the clock running , it changes the play calling.

    So, nobody cares that Sam gets the most yards that he can to set up the FG?

    STL @ SF REVIEW

    ·49ers up 21-17. Half a quarter to go. 49ers celebrating in the kickoff formation like there's some kind of party going on WTF was that? I really hate that 49ers team. I was hoping you all could rip their hearts out. At least you ripped it halfway out, that's good enough.

    ·SJ39 still a beast I see.

    ·Bradford showed some clutchness. The big play that never was in OT. Probably if he's the franchise QB he has to make sure everyone's lined up, but as I said he still showed clutchness on the throw itself. He was also of course clutch on the last drive in regulation, but to be masterful you need to be able to score with no time left at all. Still he's got something to work with. Being masterful will come with time.

    ·A heart-breaking tie if I've ever seen one. By both sides but especially the Rams. I was talking to my dad and we thought it would be funny if at around 0:06 left in OT the refs just randomly said, "We mistakenly ran off 1:12 in the first half, therefore we will now add 1:12 back on. Will the incompetent game clock operator please set the game clock to 1:18."

    ·That's all for now, I gotta go catch a flight!
