No More "Winnable" Games

I made the mistake, sadly, of believing the game at Seattle was winnable--if the Rams cleaned up their act and began to play better football. I won't make that mistake again. I've seen enough poor play and disfunction to think there are no winnable games on the schedule. Not the way this team is playing.

If and when the Rams decide to put four good quarters together, then I'll reconsider. But to have been outscored by 87 points in three games and to have been outgained by an average of 255 yards per game speaks volumes.

The defense is atrocious. Besides not stopping the run and giving up way too many big plays, it's incapable of taking the ball away. Through 28 quarters of football(including four pre-season games) the Rams defense has not forced a turnover. That's astonishing.
