The motto for the NFL over the past ten plus years has been “Any Given Sunday” because on any day, any team can beat another team. Case in point this week was the Tennessee Titans beating the Baltimore Ravens after the Ravens steamrolled the Steelers last week. But, one team has never been able to take advantage of that motto and that is the St. Louis Rams over the past 5 years.
The Rams have started their season 0-2 for the 5th straight year. Predictably finding a way to lose, despite the fact that they show flashes of tantalizing brilliance, is the Rams motto. There is really only one game I can think of over the past five seasons where the Rams actually pulled a surprise upset and that was the home win last year against a sleepwalking San Diego team.
Until they figure out how to join the rest of the NFL middle class and figure out how to start the season with at least 1 win or join the rest of the NFL any live up to the “Any Given Sunday” motto, the St. Louis Rams will continue to exist in the NFL’s basement.
