The Rams....
Fri Sep 22, 2017 8:12 am
  • ...are you concerned from what you have seen so far that they will win both games this year? The offence looks better and Aaron Donald could no doubt break the record for most sacks in a game wit ou o line. I had the hawks winning both games this year but not so sure now....or Wil they be typical low scoring ugly games like in previous years? Are the rams a threat this year to win the div? Thoughts?

  • Way too early to say I think - the Rams offense definitely looks WAY better. I think we will know more after they play their next three games. At Dallas, home to Seattle, at Jacksonville. I could easily see them losing all three. As for our game against them who knows? If we don't find an offense it doesn't matter who we play - we aren't going far.

  • Normally we lose to them at least once a year. If the game was played next week I think we lose easily. But the secret is often not who you play, but when you play them. Hopefully by that time our offense will have found its identity.

  • I saw a much better Rams team last night, especially on offense. Goff no longer has a dear in the headlight I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing look.

    The scariest part of the Rams is Gurley, McVay figured out how to properly use him, and that's not good for us.

    We'll see, they've played nobody yet. We'll see how high powered they look against the Cowboys next week.

    Im not afraid of ANY offense in the league when we're healthy. Especially one started by Sunshine Jared Goff. Green Bay in lambo they are not.

    Now their defense has historically given us fits. But they did just get 39? put up on them by Hoyer????

    Yes, but you know how divisional teams are, some teams just match up well against other divisional teams.

    Only two games the Niners won last year were against the Rams...........meanwhile we make the Rams defense look like the steel curtain.

    So who knows.

    Yup.

    Im really hoping that Monkey left when they fired Fischer.

    We'll see but hoping to whip up on their high school coach a few times this year. But honestly thats neither here nor there we dont play them for another couple weeks. Who knows what each team looks like them.

  • Not to go all conspiracy theorist but the Rams concern me not only for their better play but the low attendance in L.A. Don't be surprised if the Rams get a push from the League. They need a winner in L.A. And the Rams are their best chance.

  • Honestly, let's go get these bastards. I'm not confident we will win, but I think we can put up a fight and maybe take the game. The Rams offense looks amazing, but they haven't faced a great defense yet, which I would say we still have despite the rough outing against the Titans. Our offense.... who knows? Their defense certainly doesn't look great, but that was against real NFL offenses.

  • I think Hawks were favored until this week's games. And isn't 2.5 the normal give for home field advantage? So, it's not actually like Rams are favored at 1.5.


    Looking forward to our game - as I always do. It will be my first Rams game I can go to this season. So excited!

  • I believe home field advantage runs 3 points. The Seahawks biggest problem is probably the grass field. We suck on grass.

    Home field advantage is 2.5. Before Sunday, Hawks were favored 1.5. Now Rams are at the even point of 2.5.

    Interesting point on the grass.

    Yeah...

    https://www.fieldgulls.com/2017/9/25/16 ... s-on-grass

    Going back to the end of the 2015 season, the Seahawks offense had managed to score more than 10 points on grass only one time in six games. The lack of production from the offense on natural fields over that timeframe included poor showings such as putting just three points on the scoreboard against the Rams, five points against the Bucs, six points against the Cardinals and just nineteen points in two games at Lambeau.

    The team’s ability to score in such games was so bad that heading into yesterday’s game against the Titans, the Hawks had averaged just 9.3 points per game over the last six games played on a grass field. That’s even when including the 25 points the team scored against the San Francisco 49ers in the finale last year, which represents over 44% of the 56 points scored in those game. What that means is that during that timeframe, the team was averaging just 6.2 points per game when playing on natural grass against an opponent that did not end the year with the second overall pick.


    Hard to win with those offensive scoring numbers. :229031_shrug:

  • I think that natural grass thing is overhyped. Kind of like "He's the only player since the merger to score in 10 straight games while wearing women's underwear." You see it all the time and it's kind of funny. "Figures lie, and liars figure..

    Anyway, the main thing about playing on natural grass is, they're all away games, with a few being early starts. You can probably find a lot of them are September games too, where we annually start out slow.

    The Rams are improving, but I wouldn't place much weight in the Dallas game. They're not as good as last year, they're surprising no one. In fact, they've gotten beat up a bit this year, and I think Sean Lee is injured. Not sure when it happened, but that's a big deal on their already weak defense.

    The only thing that worries me is Toddy Gurley's running game. But if our defense will "Do their jobs," and stay in their lanes, I don't see a problem. This is a historically good run defense that has held RBs to below 3 ypc, but lose focus and let a big run get past them. If it weren't for those uncharacteristic busted "coverages" on the running back, there would probably not be a 100 yard rusher against us.

    So if they "pay attention to details" as Earl Thomas said, I see a good game with us coming out on top. And it's about time.

    And if the Rams play this game like it's the most important game of the year, it will be their downfall.

  • Well, this is the first time that I felt the Rams were he better team goig into and after the game since 2004. Watching Seattle today was like watching the Rams the past few years. Astonishing that we turned it over 5 times and dropped the game winning TD.

    Disappointed to lose, of course, but we nade a ton of mistakes, and if we dont make just one of them we probably win the game.

    Also, i think after Gurley fumbled he touched the ball while he was out of bounds but BEFORE it hit the pylon. Game changing miss there if thats the case.

    Better before? I can see it. Better after? 5 turnovers says something else. As for officiating, quit your bitching. The Rams got away with offensive holding most of the game.

    Turnovers dont say that at all. The domination in yardage and yards per play tell me the Rams were the better team. Turnovers can be random.

    And really? Both teams got away with holding. But that call, if it was wrong (Im not sure that it was, so Im not bitching), is much bigger than holding calls.

    The Hawks made the plays they needed to win the game, the Rams do look good and could have won this game. Im glad you feel like the better team lost, this is a great moral victory for St Louis, when is the parade.

  • What is it about football that makes it nearly impossible to be great on both sides of the ball?

    Is it psychological? Time of Possession?

    Where was the vaunted Rams defense that could hold the Seahawks to 9 points a game?

    Haven't seen them anywhere this season.

    Maybe blame it on the Wade Philipps 3-4 transition.....

    My guess is they return to Century Link on fire, and that game is a 13-10 type battle.

    They reviewed it and it didn't look like Gurley stepped out of bounds before the ball left his possession.

    Also, how many interceptable passes did Goff have? Sub 50% completion percentage, was that random? Gurley and Austin getting nothing in the run game after the first half?

    I actually agree the Rams looked like the better team. I think their defense was the most consistent unit on the field today, but Russ did juuuuust enough to get us to the win. Our defense was maddeningly inconsistent, giving up 3rd and long damn near every time, but they also got some crazy turnovers.

    We'll take the road division win. Have fun playing at Jacksonville, I'm sure your OL is looking forward to their Calais Campbell reunion as much as ours is :( . See you at CLink.

    They reviewed it and it didn't look like Gurley stepped out of bounds before the ball left his possession.

    Also, how many interceptable passes did Goff have? Sub 50% completion percentage, was that random? Gurley and Austin getting nothing in the run game after the first half?

    I actually agree the Rams looked like the better team. I think their defense was the most consistent unit on the field today, but Russ did juuuuust enough to get us to the win. Our defense was maddeningly inconsistent, giving up 3rd and long damn near every time, but they also got some crazy turnovers.

    We'll take the road division win. Have fun playing at Jacksonville, I'm sure your OL is looking forward to their Calais Campbell reunion as much as ours is :( . See you at CLink.



    On the fumble, I agree with you. As soon as I saw the replay, I thought "well that's going to be Seahawks ball".

    After the game I read another poster who said that the sequence went like this:

    Gurley fumbled
    Stepped out of bounds
    Gurley touches he ball trying to get it back
    Ball hits the pylon

    I haven't checked if it was true, and I can't blame the officials as I didn't notice this even if it did happen, but if Gurley touched the ball before it hit the pylon but after he stepped out of bounds, the ball is dead right there. You typically only see this come up when a ball is fumbled near the sideline and the defensive team recovers it, only to find out that he was out of bounds first.

    It was a really good game overall. I just pointed out that I came away feeling like the Rams were the better team because I haven't felt that way after a Seahawks game in 13 years. Normally we needed a fake punt or some other fluke play just to stay in the game.

    I don't think so. In your scenario, Gurley would have had to recover the ball and possess it before it hit the pylon. Once it came out of his hand, it was a free ball until a player of either team actually controlled the ball, which he didn't do until he slid into the camera guy in foul territory. Once it hit the pylon as a free ball and then went out of bounds it was a touchback, no matter who eventually came up with it. Once that happened, who recovered it was immaterial.

    It takes character to win when you get there.

    .


    Yes. The next question you have to ask yourself is, where is the "right there" that the ball is dead. It isn't where Gurley's foot is, it is where the ball is. If the nose of the ball is across the goal line when he touches it, and remember the goal line extends horizontally past the sideline, then it is a touchback no matter where his out of bounds foot rests.

    Nope. Any time an out of bounds player touches a loose ball, the ball is considered to be out of bounds at the yard line where the ball is. No possesion is needed, and the spot is based on where the ball is, not where the out of bounds player is.

  • I think it really helped that pretty much the same play happened just minutes before this at the end of the Arizona/Philly game where JJ Nelson fumbled it along the sideline forward into the endozone. That play might have been the last play the reviewers in NY had seen before reviewing it in the Seattle/LA game.

    Not saying they still wouldn't have made the right call, but they did first call it a TD and it had to be overturned leaving some room for ambiguity... Without the call just before I could see the door open to go with "the call stands".

  • Ball was clearly coming out before he stepped out of bounds. Huge play by Earl. Not a "lucky break"

    I was just glad they actually called it a TD. When I saw it at full speed, I thought maybe he'd fumbled it just short, but during the first replay, I saw it hit the pylon and hoped they'd overturn it. If they'd called him down at the 1/2 yard line, I don't know if Pete challenges it.

  • If Gurley had fumbled the ball on his own just reaching for the goal line then I would have considered that a "lucky break" but Earl caused that play as much as someone causes a strip sack fumble or makes a great catch on an INT.

    Give credit where it's due.

    The replay is up on youtube, but it doesn't change what I saw. Ball comes out...foot touches the out of bounds line....ball hits pylon....Gurley touches ball

    Hell the last few years We felt like we was the better team and still lost to the Rams,Every game has been pretty ugly.
    I think yesterday we earned it with the 5 TO and TOP,Kupp is a hell of a player but I think he was hurt before that near TD catch.Your QB should play more like Alex Smith..He has that laser 5-15 yrd pass but on long passes he is ugly as it gets.One thing for sure is your team is getting better.

  • I think the discussion about Gurley's fumble is irrelevant. Previous losses by the Seahawks against the Rams had important plays that could have drastically changed the game had they gone the Seahawks way. Now all we talk about is how the Seahawks lost those games.

    The bottom line is that if you, as a team, let the game come down to one play, and you lose, then you haven't done enough to win.

    If Kupp catches the ball, or Goff throws him a better pass, I'd say the same thing about the Seahawks. You didn't play well enough to win. If you're the better team, prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Simple as that.

    It was a GREAT play by Earl.
    But it was a 'lucky' bounce of the ball.
    It could have easily gone right out of bounds.
