    TBH, I'm not sure it was silenced in reality. Look at the past decade of what drove teams' championships.

    2013 - Seattle - defense
    2012 - Ravens - defense
    2011 - Giants - defense
    2010 - Packers - offense
    2009 - Saints - offense
    2008 - Steelers - defense
    2007 - Giants - defense
    2006 - Colts - offense
    2005 - Steelers - defense

    You've got a ton of teams winning with defense in the modern era. And when you have high-octane offenses going against high-octane defenses, the defenses are winning - unbeaten Pats vs. evil Giants D-line, Manning & Co. vs. the Seahawks, etc.

    I stand on my comments with an arsenal. This was biased reporting at its finest. You can agree o disagree...proof is in the pudding.
    In my years as a Rams fan, which is many, I have seen a lot come and go, and I have also seen a lot of agenda biased reporting. You take it how you want, and I will take it how I want. Sam will prove us right or wrong. You or I don't need to, but the proof for me, in him being a good QB, is inconclusive at this point.

    Pretty much spot on other than a few puzzling comments. He is absolutely right when he states that Sam had his best games against bad teams and he also put up a lot of those stats in garbage time against prevent defenses. As long as Sam is proficient this year, the Rams should win plenty of games. We don't need him to be "great". We finally have a TEAM that can help shoulder the load.

    I agree completely. Sam will prove his status on the field. My point was that he has not proved it as yet, and the article was fair in pointing that out.

    Don't like the remark that Sam showed more bad than good! Haven't seen much bad from Sam in his years here! Guess these guys don't watch the Rams play!
