The Whole Rams Organization Needs An Enema

I watched a lot of football this weekend, too much probably, but among the comments I heard one stood out and it was "The whole organization needs an enema". I don't remember who said it or who they were talking about, the Raiders I believe, but I am now going to use it after watching the St. Louis Rams today. This Rams organization does need an enema. Before I get into the game itself look at what we know already about the Rams. The Rams have lost 14 straight NFL regular season football games, are 0-4 in 2009, and have outscored 108-24. The Rams are dead last by a mile in scoring and have been shutout twice in the season, for the first time since 1942.

Tomorrow you will probably hear the same softball questions and answers between the St. Louis Rams and the media, so I will bring you the truth. The Rams themselves have posted and sent out a Twitter that says "A tightly contested first half got away from the Rams in the second as San Francisco surged to a 35-0 win on Sunday". Sure it was only 7-0 at halftime but did anyone think the Rams were going to score with a group of receivers that included Avery, Burton, Amendola and Martin? This team is total void of talent. Bernie Miklasz said "The Rams are the worst non-expansion year NFL team I've ever seen".

We thought the enema started when Jay Zygmunt was replaced by Billy Devaney. However as we look at the current roster and the roster from the start of the 2008 season, it is clear this team does not have more talent than it had previously. It is also too early to grade the 2008 and 2009 drafts but we certainly will not be seeing many of these guys on Sunday for years to come. Steve Spagnuolo gets a pass for now, as we all know you can't polish a turd.

I am really too mad to even discuss the game or the awful announcing from the Emmy award couple of Ron Pitts and John Lynch. For those of you die hard Rams fans that could stomach the entire game you already know the Rams were shutout 35-0. The Rams have now started three straight season with an 0-4 record. As I predicted today's game would be as painful as watching the previous Redskins game or an enema, see how I did that. The Rams managed just 10 first downs, half in the 4th quarter, and only 177 total yards. The 49ers easily bottled up Steven Jackson and the running game, harassed Kyle Boller and the woeful passing game, and basically embarrassed the Rams.

The details of the game can be summed up on two plays: The Rams received the opening kickoff, Danny Amendola broke into the open and returned the kick to the 49ers 4 yard line. Of course Anthony Smith was called for holding. Anthony Smith is a backup safety the Rams picked up off waivers back on September 6th. The ball was placed on the Rams 22 yard line, were they promptly went 3-and-out and punted the ball to the 49ers. The second play happened with 5:40 left in the first half with the score tied 0-0. A short punt from Lee bounded down the field, while throwing a block Quincy Butler kicked the ball into the Rams End Zone. Butler quickly got to the ball but tried to pick it up and run with it. This turned out to be a bad decision as he dropped the ball on the ground and Scott McKillop recovered for a 49ers TD. We have seen the rest before. Game Over.

If you are using a tough time deciding if you should utilize a payday advance, phone a customer credit history counselor. These specialists generally benefit low-revenue companies offering cost-free credit score and financial help to consumers. These people may help you choose the right payday financial institution, or perhaps even help you rework your financial situation so that you do not require the loan. [url=]Foli342334o[/url]
