Thoughts From a Message Board: Never Too Early For Rams Doom and Gloom
Lets look on the brightside, Rams fans. Sure the preseason was opened with a 38-3 thrashing by the only team that was worse than them in 2011. But, at least with the Steve Spagnuolo-version of the Rams, production in the preseason was inversely related to the regular season. Take a look:
In 2009, they went 3-1 in the preseason and finished 1-15.
In 2010, they went 3-1 in the preseason again and finished 7-9.
In 2011, they went a perfect 4-0 in the preseason and then dropped a 2-14 on us.
So perhaps we should convince ourselves to take a breather and desperately try to find a bright side to yesterday’s mess. (Hey, Lance Kendricks didn’t drop the first pass thrown to him!) Of course, that doesn’t mean that we can’t pluck out a few overreactions on the ESPN message board and enjoy the panic:
The Reboot of the LA conspiracy
Totally Reasonable Game 1 Conclusions
Physical Reaction to Rams Football
The Fisher Fan Support Ultimatum
The True Slap in the Face
Who knew that the struggles of the current St. Louis NFL team would make fans of the franchise that used to occupy the role of perennial awful St. Louis NFL team feel better about themselves. That’s a kick in the groin if we’ve ever seen one.
