You have 11 regular picks, more than any other team. Plus the comps. You are losing who this year? maybe one player. You have a HOT QB who is still on an underpaid contract next year, who can not only read option, he can pass play with the best. He now needs to prove what he can do in a full season. You also have enough cap room to pull in a good FA.
Your coach, love him or hate him, is a fanatic who knows the game. And just lost to his big brother. First year, gets team to NFC championship and loses. Next year, one ups it to the SB and loses.
This is like a story just waiting to be written for next year.
My fellow Rams fans hate me for liking any other NFC W team. But I do. No apologies either. I really only know four teams inside and out. My division.
I hope you lose twice to the Rams next year. I think you probably will. smile.
But, you have a *^&^ good story, if you do make it to the playoffs. As do the Cardinals, with Arian and all. p
Oh, but point was: rejoice Niner fans! Life is good for you as a fan after years of the desert.
