  • Burwell sums up the Rams perfectly

    At the end of this ignominious afternoon, the sad and exasperated faces of a dispirited Rams world barely had enough spunk to work up an old-fashioned leather-lunged ruckus. The afternoon had been filled with plenty of that already, dipping wildly among anger, disgust, false hope and despair from every corner of the Edward Jones Dome as recurring football horrors continued to flash before their eyes.

    Yet when the scoreboard clock had mercifully ticked off the final seconds of this 37-31 spanking by the Seattle Seahawks, the few folks who had bothered to stick it out until the bitter end looked too dazed to do much of anything except slump in their seats.

    That seems about right, now doesn't it? That's what this Rams season has really come to - just a lot of long, exasperated wheezing and flummoxed hand gestures because of the frustrations involved in trying to dissect this clunker of a game and season.

    OK, it's actually pretty good once you get past that mess I quoted.

    These weren't just bad coverages. This wasn't as if Ram safeties were physically incapable of pursuing a stable of whippet wide outs who were Jerry Rice clones. Joe Jurevicius is not Don Hutson, although he played him on TV yesterday (nine catches, 137 yards, one TD). And neither were the seven other "who's he?" receivers, such as D.J. Hackett, Jerramy Stevens, Ryan Hannam and Jerheme Urban, who ate up the secondary.

        Maybe he's taking a correspondence course in writing? I'd venture to say that he did not get a good grade in grammar however, as the grammar in those 2 paragraphs is atrocious.

                  Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                      I'm not hiding. I've always supported him because we've won a lot of games. This season we are losing and if we continue the losing then he's got to go. So far this season, the coaching has been beyond terrible. I can live with the shit when we win, but not when we lose. Every week seems to get more and more exasperating.

                      The defense sucks. Marshall didn't get one touch yesterday. We've been playing from behind all season. If we lose 10 games or more, I think Martz will and should be gone. Even if we're better than that, Marmie has to go, and Shaw and the boys need to make demands on Martz--including having a say in who the new DC is, forcing a knowledgeable football guy to act as assistant HC, and some other stuff I can't think of right now. If he won't agree to those conditions, then he's out.

                      I believe the personnel is there for a winner. I don't think Jeff Tedford is the answer (apparently he's the rumored replacement). I think the organization at least needs to think heavily before letting Martz go. It's not easy to make the playoffs 4 out of 5 years. We could be in the realm of the Browns, Bears, Cardinals, or Texans if we're not careful. Can you imagine how shitty it must be to be a fan of one of those teams?

                        We are no longer winning a lot of games, and this has been going on for a while now.

                            You know you're having problems arguing your side when you have your pick of a time frame to choose from to try to make your point that we are losing and the worse number you can come up with is one game under .500.

                            Even at his worst he hovers around .500. That's not bad.

                            It looks like you'll all have your wish if the losing continues. Trust me, he pisses me off too, but it's hard to win in the NFL. I don't want to end up like the Bears.

                              I just don't agree with that argument. How do you decide what games we should or shouldn't win? Should we have won against Philadelphi in 2001? Should we have beat Seattle 3 times last year?

                              I understand that you all hate Martz. I see why. He pisses me off. But you can't argue that he hasn't won. Even at his worst he hovers around .500. His worst season here was 7-9.
