The Rams in 2009 had a 1-15 record, they have doubled their wins from last season under Steve Spagnuolo in his second-year as head coach. The Rams are tied for first place in the NFC West after successfully beating the Seahawks in week 4.
Despite the groin injury limiting star running back Steven Jackson and with a rookie quarterback in Sam Bradford, St. Louis has its first two-game winning streak since 2008.
Just shouting out to Spags - wtg!
Yeah. After seeing them last season, I have no clue as to how they have made this turn around. Obviously Spags is doing a very good job, but you can't coach talent. That team lacks talent outside of S-Jax and their rookie QB, Sam Bradford. Even with an easy schedule, I did not think they would win over two games this season, so I give them my kudos however they are doing it.
The interesting thing about the Rams is that Steven Jackson goes down and Sam Bradford didn't even flinch in being a game changer. They could even take the division.
They are coming along a little quicker than I expected, but I'm not surprised at all to see them heading in the right direction again. I think they will be contenders within the next 2 years.
I have to agree. . .I watched them close last year. I just find it to be such an inspiration to see a team that lost week in and week with heart. And for whatever it is worth, Spags Rams have heart and soul . .
Just shows what happens when a team is led by a great coach! And what can happen to a team when they lose a great coach. . . ..
So who you got in an upset this weekend Eye??
My big upsets were the Titans, Cards, and Bucs. They are making me look good. Not so big were the Giants, Rams, and Vikings. They are making me look okay. Potentially, I could end up with four out of five underdogs winning on the scoreboard today.
I am surprised as anyone with the Rams playing at .500 level. I live in Springfield, we are right in the middle of Rams and Bears territory. The Rams have a brief following, the Super Bowl years. If you ask most people from Illinois, they will tell you they are Bears fans. There was a following NFL Cardinals fans, both Chicago and St. Louis. The Rams do have a good following in the St. Louis area but not really anywhere else. This franchise has had some lean years and it is nice to see them playing competitively.
I remember when the St. Louis Rams were good in the early 2000s that the St. Louis stadium used to play a song after one of the Rams scored a touchdown. Does anyone know the name of that song?
It will be another 10 years before the Rams to return to the shape they were in the early 2000s. Stephen Jackson quite possibly the best player on that team, its just rest of the team that lacks consistency. Go Eagles!
I gotta agree with you once again . . I like what I read from Rams linebacker Larry Grant "You can’t just come in and overlook our team, Regardless of what’s happened in our past, this is a new year, this is a new team, with a new attitude. We’re going to bring it every time."
And I look forward to watching them do it .. .
Though sooner or later anyone who wants the Lombardi Trophy is gonna get stopped by the.......
They are a young team and they'll have some bad losses. Their road record is pretty indicative of that. But with the shape of that division and the NFC in general this year, I wouldn't be at all shocked if they ended up winning the division.
The rams defence has gotten good they have a mix of young, old players and things r finally coming around for them.Next year they could be for real.

Should Rush Limbaugh be allowed to purchase the St. Louis Rams knowing that 66% of NFL players are African American and has made several racist comments directed towards this race?

NFL.com Wire Reports Now the question is can the St. Louis Rams who were 1-15 last year in the first season under coach Steve Spagnuolo maybe win 2 games this coming season?

Here's another arrogant guy. How will he make it in the NFL if he is grabbing at his shoulder and rolling around on the turf?????? Let's start the anti-Bradford fan club here.

As a Redskin's fan I have been seriously dissappointed, season after season. Every offseason it seems as if we invest so much money in the areas on the team where we think we are lacking. I have come to the conclusion...

Well, you can make a strong case for him that's for sure. Then again, you could argue that he's never been a great x's and o's guy because he's always had the luxury of having an assistant coach in Tex Winter that...
