It Took the Rams 8 Days to Lose Their Luster by Stlvinnie
With the Rams up 13-7 and driving on the Panthers early in the 3rd quarter Steven Jackson fumbled around the Panthers 32. A simple FG would have put the Rams up 16-7 and given them a pretty good chance to win that game. As you know the Rams went on to lose 27-13. In addition to the loss the Rams lost Orlando Pace for the year. You could feel the edge start from there, from 1-0 we were now 0-1 and almost in a must win situation against the 49ers. The game started well with the Rams jumping to an early 7-0 lead. Again many mistakes were made and the Rams lost again 17-16.
The St. Louis Rams are now 0-2, 0-2 in the conference and 0-1 in the division. Orlando Pace and Todd Stuessie are both on IR. Fakir Brown is still serving a 4 game suspension. Hill, Incognito and Tinoisamoa all missed game two and may miss game 3 as well. The St. Louis Rams play 4 of their next 5 games on the road. The mood of the city has soured on the Rams and the fans are already bailing on this years squad. On the talks shows you can hear about anything, get rid of Linehan, start Berlin, etc. Everything is now against the Rams can they rally?
We have an upcoming 8 day window were the St. Louis Rams will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys. If the Rams can win both they will be 2-2 and right back in it. A lot can happen in 8 days….can’t it?
