As we all know by now, the Rams used their appearance on prime time TV last night to hop in a time machine, bring back the 2009 squad and allow the Seahawks to become the worst team ever to make the NFL playoffs. Pretty sweet game.
When games have immediate playoff implications such as last night’s, the online editors in the sports world are staying closely tuned in to the action so they can cue up their stories.
Of course sometimes, to get ahead of the competition, the media just takes a leap of faith…and falls on their face. Using Harry Truman’s famous photograph as inspiration, apparently SI.com had enough confidence in Sam Bradford and the gang to pencil them into the playoffs for their story teaser…
Of course, this all is considered moot if by “joined the postseason party” they meant a party where eventual teams that get bounced from the postseason hang out and drown their sorrows. Let’s just say the Rams stumbled into that party a few minutes before the doors even opened.
