    Now be honest... we all see the poll on the forum page on how many wins to win the division but how many wins do you give the Rams and give an argument for some major losses. Looking at the schedule which is supposedly one of the hardest in the league and taking into account we lost 5 divisional games and still went 7-9 with a backup qb last year on the same type of schedule I think most are "winnable" not necessarily wins. I still give the Rams a 50/50 against the hardest opponents (no im not drunk, im usually naturally a pessimist). what say you?

    Outside the division, I see us winning vs. Minnesota, at TB, vs Dallas, at Philly, vs. Oakland, at Washington and vs New York. Split with the 3 divisional foes and you're 10-6 with an upshot of 12 wins (taking 2 from SF or Ari, beating the Chargers on the road, MAYYYYYYBE beating Denver at home depending on how their offense is this season).

    I think we could lose @Eagles, @Chiefs, Broncos, @Chargers and we win Vikings, @Bucs, Cowboys, Raiders, @Redskins, Giants.

    So 6+ is my answer.

    You should let me see the results before I vote. I feel shamefully treasonous now. (4).

    i agree a 10-6 could possibly be second in the division this year. I think we split a lot of games with each other in the division

    OK!!! Who's the clowns that voted 3+? I know all hookers are entitled to their own opinion, but come on. We have a better team than last year and we gave teams outside our division the big stiffy after week 3. And that was WITH Clemens for most of those games. (Barring CAR, of course. We got the big yellow stiffy when Jake robbed Tavon with a weak tripping penalty. That game was as bogus as week 17 in Seattle. ((OH!!! And Seattle fans think we're "dirty" after that game. Thus for, some good did come of it lol.)) )

    Surely he'd be right if we won all 10 as 10 is greater than 3?

    As for the question I don't see a team who we should be scared of on that schedule, I just want to win the games we should and some of the others too.

    With a non-biased, objective opinion, i see six wins as the likely outcome. Add three divisional wins and you've got 9-7 which is my official season prediction. We could possibly sneak in one more victory somewhere to reach 10-6....or lay an egg somewhere and finish 8-8.

    Honestly I think most of the out of division games are winnable. Toughest one being Denver of course, but it's at home, so you never know what might happen. My guess is 6+, but as to which ones who knows. Most are tossup that could go either way depending on which Rams team shows up that day.

    Bradford is going to turn everyone's head this season. I see us winning at least 10 games, so I went 6+. I think it'll be about 7 or 8 outside the division.

    I'm really hoping that 2014 Denver = 2013 New Orleans, at least in the Ed.

    I was one who voted 3+. I believe, as of right now, before I've even seen this team, we will 5 games outside of our division. I believe we will win against the Vikings, Bucs, Raiders, Redskins, and Giants as it sits. Of course I believe and know we have a better team than last season, but, so does everybody else. What will lead me to be confident in another victory or two, say against Dallas and the Eagles, will be the quality of our depth and the belief that our OLine will be a very strong unit. Even without the explosion of Britt or Quick, we can beat those teams. The fuel runs through the run game and defense. Time to ignite.

    No being a homer but we will 10. We will win a few we didn't expect to win and lose a couple we thought we should of won.

    Rams are a better team this year, core players are entering prime years. We won 7 with a back up QB and a starting TB that didn't start till week 5. We could of won 10 last year if not for some ST penalties.

    This team has talent and is better than their record showed last year.

    Anything less than a playoff spot will be a disappointment IMO. Time to see some results.

    I had to pick the 3+ option but I think they win 5 outside the division: Vikings, Bucs, Raiders, Redskins, Giants.

    The Eagles will tough, and as good as the front 7 can be, the secondary is still too inconsistent to make me confident about the Eagles "always pressing triangle on the controller" offense.

    Cowboys, did you know the last Rams coach to win against that team was Jim freakin Haslett? The past 2 times they kicked the Rams' collective ass. They need to stop DeMarco Murray.

    Chargers and Chiefs, being on the road makes it rather tough.

    Broncos, who knows. This truly is a wild card. I'm sure the defense will be motivated to beat Peyton Manning, but he always gets rid of the ball too fast for any pass rusher to get to him. And now they have Von Miller AND DeMarcus Ware. OL better bring it.

    Of course this is just speculation, and anything can happen. Remember last offseason everyone (including me) was pegging the Houston game to be a terrible loss. Well, didn't exactly happen.

    I see 6-7 wins sitting there outside of the division. Win our divisional home games and we're looking at a 10 win season.
