We got absolutely creamed today by a defense that should have been easy to handle. I know that we are a long way from being the Packers but after they manhandled the Bears last week I expected us to beat this team too. The Bears' locker room troubles and on-the-field dissention should have enabled us to come out and totally dismantle what was left of them, but alas we have the SOSAR rearing its ugly head a week after I declared it dead. A horrible game for Kendricks and Harvey Dahl, and more missed INT's and stupid penalties cost us what should have been a last minute win in a hard fought defensive battle. Last minute went away in a hurry.

From 10-6 to getting the tarter sauce beat out of us in what seemed like a 5 second span made me actually forget about the once again horrible officiating. The only redeeming thing about this loss is that the Whiners also lost, so we should have plenty of time to right the ship and battle for the division crown.  NO WAY Arizona keeps it up, so on to next week and the Hags at the EJ Dome and what should be a much better game, for can it possibly get any worse with this year's team?

Goodell is a Tool

When interviewed by Trey Wingo for ESPN's NFL Live, the Commissioner, I mean Judge, Jury, and Executioner of the NFL was asked about the performance of the scab officials and stated the following: "I think they did a very credible job, the fans were focused on football and that's what we want." ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This guy is such a tool for the team owners its pathetic! The Zebras affected the outcome of games, and that is very credible? The NFL has admitted to Coach Fisher and other teams that the officials flat out screwed up, and that is a very credible job? Every time I see this guy it makes me want to punch my dog. Not only do his scabs need to go but so does he.

SOSAR? I Think Not

I keep seeing it all over message boards, and even more so from our own fans than from others - "Same ol' sorry ass Rams!" Well I don't know what game they were watching but from what I saw, that stereotype should be gone, and hopefully gone forever.

Outside of two terrible missed INT's, this team in no way resembles SOSAR.  How refreshing it was to see one of our DB's actually make a pick, and then for Finny to actually make his into a pick-6 well, that right there made me pinch myself.  And the third pick, once again from another new Ram, definitely proves that the days of SOSAR are behind us.

Over-reaction? We wont know until the next game is played but I will be extremely surprised if we revert. It really burned me up though to see our old slippery handed DB's blow their two shots at a pick, one of which may have eventually sealed the victory for us. HOWEVER, that being said, the replacement officials are absolutely to blame for us losing this game because the obvious missed/wrong calls that either killed our drives or should have killed the Lions' drives truly made the difference.  Since when is it ok to lead with the helmet, or go below the knees to late hit our QB?  And how many times did we see the zebras allow the crowd or the Lions' sideline to influence throwin' a flag? I counted 4, one of which was almost immediately into the game.  And this was not the only game for this to happen.  The Packers/Whiners game had the same things happen. Blowing calls is one thing but blowing it when it matters is another, and how the richest sports entity in the world can allow for this to continue just baffles me.

Perhaps the NFL world should to be chanting "SOSAR" - Bring back those Same ol' sorry ass Refs!

Official-ly A Disaster

Commissioner Goddell has said that for at least week one there will be replacement officials in all games. Have you seen the "high"lights of their mistakes? Unbelievable that the BIGGEST sports agency in the WORLD cannot pony up the money to pay the real officials the money they deserve.  They need to quit fooling around and hire Ed Hoculi and company full-time and get them back on the field immediately.  I just know that the Rams are gonna get burned by a bad call, I can just feel it.  Please Roger Goddell - end this debacle now!
