It's not a matter of being humbled. You can't really humble fans of a team who have been so used to losing. It's a matter of being sold an expectation when Fisher became our coach....the idea we would be good again. Obviously, that was false.
I believed it, and I am sad. But, still love my Rams. Though I would like Shotty fired and Bradford benched.
I never came on here claiming anything pre-season, so don't act like all Rams' fans are as you describe. Won't back down when we lose, and won't gloat when (if ever) we win.
Congrats on the win. Rams officially suck this year. It's beyond stupid how much.
The crew on NFLN was really blasting the OC Shottenheimer. I would have to agree with them. He has not produced a good offense in a very long time, if ever. We're well aware how a bad OC and poor playcalling can kill your offense. It plagued us for many years before Harbaugh arrived.
I see a lot of Alex Smith in Bradford. This is a guy who can become a very efficient QB with better coaching and a balanced offensive approach. I don't think you give up on him just yet.
Ditch Shottenheimer, find a real replacement to Jackson, and Fisher needs to re-commit to a power running game and find the personnel to do it. That offensive line will not do. Defensively there is some nice athletic talent, but you need a few thumpers who will stick their nose in the gaps and clog the running lanes.
