So many penalties. I don't want to hear about the lack of training camp, because every team in the league had the same schedule for that. The penalties are a reflection of the coaching staff.
My dad and I were harping on the TV announcers for constantly belaboring that point yesterday. Any time the Rams made a mistake they would mention the lack of time. So it affects the 0-3 teams but not the 3-0 teams?
I like Spags, he seems to have a bit more of a clue than Linehan did. The difference between Spags and Linehan is that at least under Spage and Devaney, the Rams have drafted solid players. They are building depth but it's not quite there yet. Linehan completely destroyed any depth that they had. Linehan cut Ryan Fitzpatrick to keep Brock Berlin. He also cut Madison Hedgecock, who immediately latched on to the Giants, went to the Pro Bowl, if memory serves correct, and won a Super Bowl with them.
The schedule is rough, and it's a long season. But the Rams can turn this thing around. They may not make the playoffs, but from here on out, I'm watching to see if they improve and make a push like the 49ers did last year after starting 0-4 or 0-5, whatever it was.
The Rams didn't even look like they belonged yesterday. Losing is one thing but losing in that fashion is another. But it's not time to give up. It is a long season. The NFC West sucks so you never know how that will shake out.
