    Yes boys and girls, there are many in the world of sports media that doubt the coming greatness of our team. In fact, some of their comments border on ignorance and mockery. So in this thread we will compile articles and comments that if placed on their bulletin board might fire up Rams coaches and players even more than they already are. Perhaps Kevin Demoff, Joe Barksdale, or Johnny Hekker, who have done interviews here at ROD, will come across this thread and pass it on. I'll kick things off with........
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Apparently Vinnie Iyer of sportingnews.com doesn't believe that the Rams D will be good enough this season to even crack the top ten. The Broncos, Bucs, and Texans D's are rated higher than the Rams. Link
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Russ Lande of sportsonearth.com apparently doesn't think too highly of Sam Bradford. The dumbest remark is bolded.

    "If you only looked at stats, you'd feel confident that QB Sam Bradford has made big strides throughout his career and is on the verge of becoming a frontline starter in the NFL. However, when evaluating him on film, it seems clear that some of Bradford's biggest faults are still an issue.

    For a quarterback with his physical talent, he does not play with the confidence I would expect. He often seems hesitant to pull the trigger quickly and doesn't stride into his throws aggressively or decisively, and this leads to his passes lacking consistency both in zip and accuracy.


    Additionally, the sign of a top quarterback is his ability to raise the level of performance of his receivers -- there's an old saying that good quarterbacks make average receivers good and good receivers great -- but Bradford has not been able to do this. He seems to be much more of a throw-to-an-open-receiver quarterback than one who can lead his receivers open and excel on quick-hitting timing routes.

    Although Bradford is a better athlete than he gets credit for, he is clearly more of a classic pocket passer who struggles when he has to adjust within the pocket."

    The Rams strength of schedule is ranked as the third hardest. Thanks for that NFL and thanks for having us play our last game of the season in Seattle....again. :mad: LINK
    --------------------------------------------------
    26 anonymous league insiders did not think too highly of Sam Bradford and ranked him low. ESPN Insider access is needed for most of this article. LINK
    -------------------------------------------------
    Chris Wesseling at NFL.com has Sam Bradford listed as a question mark QB. LINK
    -------------------------------------------------
    Alessandro Miglio of bleacherreport.com does not think that Jeff Fisher is an "innovative" coach but apparently Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll are. LINK
    -----------------------------------------------
    According to Pete Prisco and Pat Kirwan of cbssports.com only Robert Quinn was worthy of making their list of top 100 players.
    ----------------------------------------------
    Our buddy Alessandro Miglio of bleacherreport.com also says that the Rams' coaching staff is the worst in the NFL. LINK
    --------------------------------------------
    Evan Silva over at yahoo.com has the Rams ranked at #24. LINK

    The worst coaching in the league article is blatant Rams hating. In a debate over that subject the author would get "metaphorically" dick punched until he coughed up blood.



    Then he would get literally dick punched until he coughed up blood.

    Every time the media hypes us up we seem to fail (see 2010). The national media probably only watched our 2 prime time games and based their whole outlook on us from those 2 games. PFT rated us the 20th best team and had the Jets ahead of us. It is what it is. We have a chance to make the national media types look foolish in a few months.

    Remember most national media prognosticators had the Texans, Redskins, and Falcons as playoff contenders if not locks. They don't know their rear end from a hole in the ground.

    Did Pat Kirwan really rate Aldon Smith higher than Robert Quinn?

    Saw that. Kirwan must be smoking crack if he thinks Smith will see the field any time soon.

    Hopefully it will cause Sam and the other players to say "Oh yeah? Watch this!!!" I highly doubt anyone who plays in the NFL should be referred to as soft. At least not to their face. :mad:
