if we go into this game thinking it's a win in the bag we're going to get our asses kicked plain and simple. now, i don't think that will happen, but it's ridiculous for US to be saying things like we're going to just roll over the rams without issue. we need to focus, not look ahead to atlanta
I don't think anyone is overlooking the Rams. I think most here are not looking past the Rams, just intent on beating them by a large margin.
By all accounts this should be in the bag. The Rams are among the 3 weakest teams in the NFL, and most of their starters, which could not be starters on 30 other teams, are dropping like flies.
It is true that weak teams can be dangerous. But if the 49ers are not a fluke, then we should beat them by 3 or 4 touchdowns, and I bet our defense chimes in at least another touchdown. If Raye calls 60% run plays, then I don't know. But I would use this game to get the passing game in sync. It's pretty obvious that Raye did not trust the passing game late in the 4th quarter against the Vikings.
PS-I don't want Nedney to see the field except for extra points.
