Just being realistic

November 14, 2017 06:07AM
I don't see us getting all the way on top of the NFC this year.

I do expect McV to prepare us well for these games. And I expect us to win our share of them.

But I don't think that we have yet demonstrated the level of superiority that could lead to EXPECTATIONS of dominating this run. I don't see what we've done so far projecting to the top. Other teams have, I think, a kind of competitive maturity that we haven't yet shown.

To win 5-6 games the rest of the way, we would have to, I think, raise our game significantly. Of course, we HAVE been steadily growing as a team. But that level ... I dunno. I can't say I expect it.

I will be pretty happy if we win 3-4 games the rest of the way and make the playoffs. If SEA fades, which they might or might not be doing, I can see us winning a no longer great division. If they don't fade, I figure we'll be a wild card.

Look. I don't count McV's team out of anything. I will not be shocked if he raises the team yet again. But I do not see us at the level PHI and maybe MN is at. Not yet.

Now, if we beat Minny ... well, ...

But that's getting ahead of ourselves, IMO.

  In essence, the Rams have two playoffs...

  I think that looks possible.

  Seeing similar, 11-5

ArizonaRamFan73November 14, 2017 08:01AM

  I think it's more like 4-3

  Here is the one reason that makes me believe it possible...

  Like your focus ... on coaching!

RFL94November 14, 2017 08:17AM

  Here’s the way I look at it...

Rams4374November 14, 2017 08:26AM

  True, as far as 'in the grouping'....

JamesJM81November 14, 2017 08:29AM

  Well ...

RFL60November 14, 2017 09:04AM

  We're looking at it a little differently...
