Not even going to look at the vent thread, there are too many things to celebrate.

A) we got out healthy. That's huge. Health down the stretch is one of the biggest indicators of success in the playoffs

B) the defense rallied. After giving up 35 in the first half, we only gave up 3 through 1.5 quarters. And the late TD came on a busted play where there was confusion about the play call. That's going to happen on the road against a playoff caliber team in one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.

C) we've played 4 of the last 5 games on the road and it turns out that beating Seattle in Seattle was a much bigger deal than we thought as they are playing some really good ball. Beating GB at home was no small thing, either.

D) we can only beat the refs so many times before that caught up to us.

E) Fowler showed up pretty well and as he gets more into the defense, that will be good for us down the stretch. Talib is coming back after the bye.

F) the goal is the Super Bowl, not a perfect season. I have more faith in McVay, Wade and the rest of the coaching staff as well as the leaders on this team to rally than I've EVER had and that includes the GSOT days.

G) I love this team at 2-14 and I loved this team at 11-5 and I love this team at 8-1.

If you need to complain at tackling Kamara high or refs or Peters... this isn't the place. The Vent thread is ----->.

Horns UP!

Go RAMS!!!

Agreed. Think we need to sit a player on defense to make an example out of him. We will be fine next week

I agree with you Mac, about Fowler. I thought it interesting that Fowler was blocked by a guy on a crossing route from the other side......looked like respect to me....I think we will really like him in the coming games

Remember, the Horns and the Chiefs have the very last bye week in Week Twelve, and that week can't get here fast enough. Some of our guys are playing with nagging injuries and can use a refresh period.

I think that's a big reason for the 1st half of the Packer's game....The Packers came off a bye week and McCarthy had two weeks to game plan

Rams still #1 seed for playoffs
Actually I don't think so.

The Saints are the #1 Seed since they've only lost once and that was to TB. They've beat Washington, Minnesota and now the Rams so they've got all the head to head tie breakers right now.

The good news for the Rams is that while we just went 4-1 through our toughest gauntlet, the Saints have just started theirs and theirs lasts the rest of the season, including two games against Carolina, iinm.

Seattle and KC will be super tough games, but I saw the beginnings of things in this game which should lead to a win against KC in Mexico City and even though the Seahawks are playing well, I think this team will be up for a division game at home.

That'll put us at 10-1 entering the bye week and the rest of the schedule is tough, but manageable.

Plus, I love McVay's attitude about rebounding. His culture and his attitude is contagious.

We didn't beat the Saints and the refs today.

Moving on. This is still an amazing season and one tough loss on the road doesn't define it.

That's a mistake then. If the playoffs started today, the Saints would be the #1 seed based on head to head.

Thankfully, we've gone through our ridiculous gauntlet and emerged 4-1. Now the Saints have their own gauntlet and it looks maybe the toughest of anyone in the league.

if they win out, they deserve home field because it's obnoxiously bad.

I think the Rams could easily be 14-2.

I don't think the Saints finish better than 13-3. They have a lot of division games left and both the Panthers and Falcons play them super tough.

The good news is that there will be no resting starters against the Niners..I hate the Niners and want them embarrassed.

I think Goff had his best game ever.
He was dropping some dimes today that were as good as any I’ve seen from any QB ever.

I know this ain’t The vent thread, but I’m a bit disappointed in, (freaking ticked at lol), Higbee.
That pass was as good as they get.
