So Close

In this game we call football, you fight and dig and claw for inches that turn into yards. No, question that the Rams gave it there all yesterday afternoon. And that all the coaches can ask for, is 110%, to just leave it out on the field. You play the game every week because every week is different. This is football.

Such is life in the NFL, where, things can turn on a dime. It comes down to who wants it more. It comes down to who can play a whole 4 quarters and then some. The Saints did as overcame Rams heroics to come out on top 28-25 in the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday. The loss left the Rams at 1-2 on the season and boosted New Orleans to 2-1.

Go Rams!

It Has Begun!

The Cards gave it there best effort but where spoiled by Isaac Bruce and Marshall Faulk. Faulk had 128yds on 22 carries and Bruce had 112yds with 9 receptions and a touchdown. The Rams dropped the Cards 17-10 in their season opener at home.

Martz had this to say about his teams debut in 2004.
From NFL.com,By Nick Wagoner
“I would have to give us an A+ because we rushed the ball pretty good and I don’t know if there were any sacks registered today (there weren’t),” Pace said. “If you can do that you will have success and you will win the ball game.”

“They made stops and that’s the mark of a good defense,” Martz said. “You’ve got to give our defense a great deal of credit for that stop and at the end of the game getting three-and-out. I thought our defense played very well.”

“To open up the season at home and win, that’s a great feeling, Martz said. “Overall, I’m very pleased with a win like this at home.”

It's time for some real football!

They didn't show well during the Preseason, but I am confident that they will bounce back strong now that it really matters. Coordination should improve as long as Mike Martz stops hitting the bottle/huffing the glue/smoking the crack or whatever-the-hell he was doing last game when he inappropriately called for a field goal:
"I can't believe I was yelling for a field goal," he said. "That was the dumbest thing I've ever done as a football coach."
-From their official site

Well, at least he made that ridiculous mistake in the Preseason...

They face Arizona on the 12th (Regular season!). Let's hope Mr. Martz gets plenty of sleep the night before.
