  • "Dream Team" gets fans' hopes even higher with victory.

    I hate the Eagles. I hate every NFC East team except for the Cowboys. I like the Rams. I like every NFC West team except for the 49ers. I hate all this speculation about the Eagles being 2011's Dream Team by adding a few players. They got lucky with a weak St. Louis team in Week 1, but this sweet dream won't last. The Eagles will soon get bitten by the bed bugs.moreless
  • I thought it would be closer, but with those injuries...

    I picked these teams to win their respective divisions and was expecting this game to be competitive, which it was for a little while. But when the Rams lost Stephen Jackson, it seemed only a matter of time until the talent laden Eagles exerted their will on the game.

    Michael Vick was spectacular as usual and Sam Bradford played OK, but his lack of mobility, especially compared to Vick, cost the Rams. While was doing his usual escape acts, Bradford was sacked by a defender getting one arm on him. He seemed out of sync all day although losing your best player after one play doesn't help. When his wide receiver got hurt, it became very tough.

    The Rams deserve a pass given the quality of the opponent and the injuries, but if Jackson is hurt for any length of time, my prediction is in trouble.moreless
  • 9/11

    The Rams were competitive at times in this and Steven Jackson showed why he is a force, but when the injuries started to pile up, including those to the RB and their quarterback, the alleged Dream Team took over. The Eagles were impressive today, but the Rams are a five win team this year, so we should not be reading too much into this thing, that's for sure. Still, I am glad that football is back, that's also for sure.moreless
