Re: I think where fans go wrong on this

Is they know all the weaknesses of THEIR team, but not necessarily the others.

If you look at the playoff hopeful list in the NFC it's still wide open. All the teams have roster weaknesses. Ours are ILB, ROLB, and C. But that's not a crippling set of concerns. Truth is this defense is hard to pass on which means they're going to win a lot of games because this offense is a great complement.

From there it's about which team grows the most in that final ten games of the season. Generally things get serious in the NFL around week 6. You see teams with strong rosters at times get a slow start but then get serious and make a run. What you don't want to be is a team that is peaking but doesn't have a lot of room for improvement.

I think the Rams are so well coached that they're running at a higher efficiency than most other teams. BUT that said I also think there's upside. I think this secondary is going to struggle a little with Fuller out, but over the final 10 games they will probably harden into one of the best groups in the NFL. The top units (like New England last season) get into that zone where they communicate and limit mistakes at a very high level. We have the raw makings of that type of unit IF they can find a way to replace Hill.

Also the RB position. Our run game started strong but the Rams' offense still needs someone to settle it down on the ground. Be that guy they can depend on. I think it's Akers. Some think it's Hendy. Heck I'm sure some think it's Brown. But either way the talent and coaching are there so I see a Rams' offense that will rise in the scoring significantly once that is sorted. And we also are going to start getting a lift from Jefferson down the stretch, he won't get big volume or anything but he'll be a very nice threat vs a CB3/4 that draws him.

At this moment in time this is a Super Bowl contending team. As much as any other team in this league. IMO.
