The Rams are coming off a bye week with a record of 0-4. In week 6 we are headed to Lambeau Field to take on the 5-0 (and 2010 World Champion) Green Bay Packers. If I was an honest person I’d have to admit that providing any kind of meaningful game analysis would probably be a joke. So, to start, here are a few of my favorite Packer jokes:
Why does Lambeau Field have hybrid turf? To keep fans from grazing during the game. (yahoo sports)
What do you call a Packer fan with half a brain? Gifted. (yahoo sports)
A Chicago car salesman was fired Monday for wearing a Green Bay Packers tie. Who knew a Green Bay fan could even tie a tie. (yahoo sports)
What is the difference between a Packer fan and a baby? The baby will stop whining after a while. (yahoo sports)
I hope this puts a smile on your face because we’re going to get killed this coming Sunday. With that in mind I feel obligated to provide some obvious advice to help the Rams a) win, b) be competitive, or c) not completely embarrass themselves and their fans? (I’ll let you choose.)
1 With our depleted secondary we have nothing to lose so blitz, blitz, blitz, and then blitz some more.
2 Play more zone coverage
3 Develop some time consuming offensive drives and keep Aaron Rodgers and his arsenal off the field as much as possible
4 We need a flat out inspiring game from Steven Jackson. I’m talking TDs. Not just accumulating some yards, but some bling that will show up on the scoreboard.
5 Our WRs have got to stop dropping balls.
6 Force some turnovers and minimize our own turnovers and penalties.
7 May God have mercy on our (Rams players, coaches and fans) souls because some divine intervention is probably our best chance.
Never give up Rams fans. You never know when things will turn around!
