Football you say?

Like, one using his foot, dribbling a ball?

It's very popular in Europe, always has been.

No, American football. I like football though. Used to play it. That's until I broke both my knees tackling someone.

The Rams certainly have picked it up. They'll be hell to deal with once Warner comes back.

I know.

Why did they name it football when it obviously hasn't got anything to do with a foot? Yes, I know about the field goals and kick offs, but beyond that, it has as little to do with feet as handball has.

Football got renamed to soccer - why can't football get renamed to "longball" or something like that?

Because we Americans are stuck-up and think everything we say is right.

Ugh.

Rams don't got a shot sry. They alrdy lost too much. I def. think packers are gonna win it or atleast get to the superbowl. They are 8-1, best in the NFL. I myself am an Eagles fan but u gotta accept reality.

HELL YES, I LIVE in st. louis, and am a diehard rams fan...

you all know why they went 0-5 to start? its gods sick joke on st. louis, only one sport team can be good at a time... you see, the cards were busy winning the division at the time:) giants suck!

now, this for a sec.... rams won FOUR in a row, on the THIRD STRING QB.... and the big guy is comming back next monday:D:D:D

Hey, that third stringer ain't so bad.

I'm a diehard Patriots fan m'self!!! :D

I give the Rams credit though. To start 0-5 and win four in a row ain't easy. Now, the Pats hafta pick up that same pace!!!

'Football' is called that, if I'm not mistaken, because of the length of the ball itself which is roughly one foot long. At least, that's how I think they got the name 'football'. Sounds good!:nut:

I really don't have like a favorite team......I think I like the Saints and the Falcons. But more then anything, I just like to see good games. :)

I stand corrected.

It's an obvious, simple answer - I'll buy it! :D

I only follow the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL, only cause I'm in Georgia.

Anyway, they aren't a great team, but when they win, they win.

rugby and football arent the same sport. football uses more pads, and i forget the other reasons...:D

St Louis city is nuts tonight.. Luckily I am not part of that traffic tonight... But I heard Warner will be starting, and that Bulger will be back on the bench, but then Faulk might not get much time since he didnt practice this weekend. Also. Its not IMPOSSIBLE for the RAMS to make it to the super Bowl. if they go 11-5, thats not a bad season. One wouldn't even think that they lost the first 5 with an 11-5 record. But then again, this isn't a movie, so who knows. Sure I live just east of st Louis on the IL side, but I still am a hockey fan and come this saturday night, I will be sitting behind the St Louis goalie chanting evil spells so that he can't stop the puck :-D

GO COLORADO!!!

Why talk about the Rams when St. Louis has the Blues? Best team in St. Louis.

The reason that Americans do not call American football something like Handball or Logball is because we are cixelsyd and stupid and want to give the birdie to Europeans. We think we are superior and in some ways we are but not by many. Europeans far out weigh us in that manner.

Handball sounds gay also.

No way man, Rams rule.
Last night's game was insane, they are incredible, im really happy. The reason I like the team is cuz im from Los Angeles, and so are they, Ive liked em for quite a while, throughout all those bad seasons, and now they are startign to do well

If I am not mistaken, with greatness comes victory, and according to the records, St Louis Blues have NEVER won the Stanley Cup. Now on the other Hand, Colorado has won it twice since moving from Quebec, where even there, they won o. But as far as for the Rams, they have actually won a championship. The Blues are probably the only Pro team in St Louis that hasn't won a championship for the City. Now, I could be wrong, because I don't keep up With St Louis Ambush (if it is still around)

Granted the Blues have never won a cup in their existence they have reached the finals a few times. The reason they are the best team in St. Louis RIGHT NOW is they have the best record without their best forward, without their best defensman, without their best goalie, and with a whole bunch of rookies and sophmores and juniors. They one of the leading teams in goals a game and the ONLY THING they are lacking is Penalty Kill. Their Power Play is one of the best.

They have gone through Sanford, Rudkowsky, Divis, Brathwaithe, and Barrasso as goalies and Johnson still hasn't come back as their #1 guy. I would like to see the Rams with their #6 QB out there and see his record.

The Rams have been losing with their best (Martz is an idiot) and they won yesterday even without the assistance of Faulk. BUT they were playing the Bears. I mean come on!

The Blues' record 11-4-1 right now. They have less losses than the Rams and they have played 6 more games.

The Rams are good but in my humble opinion the Blues are better.

Go Rams and Blues!

GO Avs!

Since this is more about the Rams.....I'm gonna throw my .02 about the QB situation. Kurt Warner should sit the bench until this guy that is playing now proves otherwise. He is on a roll (5 wins) and is really feelin' it out their on the field.

Keep the new guy in I say! Let Kurt rest and be ready later on in the season.........if they need him to be, of course!! :D

I don't really like the Rams. Maybe it was because they beat my team, The Raiders. Oh well, they gotta heck of a run going right now though.

What happens next week.

Warner comes back against a team known for hurting QB's.

The redskins ended Troy Aikmans Career and gave Bret Farve the only injury of his career.

If I were a slow QB on my first day back, I wouldn't want Lavar Arrington chasing me around.

Also next year what do the Rams do to keep them both?

Either Bulger or Warner is going to be gone at the end of the season. You can't have two starters of their caliber on one team for long.

I am doomed to be a skins fan so I say the rams can have Matthews AND Wuerffel for either of them.

I say as of right now, it's a little too early to tell. Let's see how they finish out the year and then make a decision. I'm curious to see how well this Buldger guy will continue to play! :) I hope he does well.

As for Warner, if Buldger finishes the year off well, I say get rid of Kurt. How many MVP qb's have finished their carreers on different teams? Well, first off I can name Joe Montana, I think Fran Tarkenton as well. Heck, the Patriots just got rid of Drew Bledsoe and I think there are many good years left in that arm!! Oh well........I'm gonna enjoy the rest of the NFL season!! :D

I will be MORE than Happy to Claim the bragging rights now!!! :D Nice little birthday gift to me from the Avalanche, especially for my 21st b'day, I get to open the St Louis Post-Dispatch with it reading

"Blues drop game to Avs 3-1 "

:D


Go Sakic! Go Roy! Go Avs!

ERG! To make it even St. Louis is just going to have to go to Denver here in the next few days and take that one from you guys. That was a good game for both teams although the Avs did play much better.

You try playing without Sakic/Forsberg, Blake, and Roy and tell me how well you think you would do then.

Do you think that Colorado would be open to undo the trade of Ruchinsky for Roy? I think St. Louis would.

Next time and until then enjoy.

Yea, then come the day after x-mas, avalanche would just have to beat the blues then. Oh and you spoke of try playing without Forsberg/Sakic and Roy.. Well, 2001 we did play without Forsberg... And at times, without Forsberg or Roy. So, yes I know what it's like. But consider that St Louis didn't have any big scratches last night. They played with Pronger, and Nash, and Demitra, and Barasso. So, it was even match so to speak, and the Avalanche came out victorious.

Plager? Who is Plager? Pronger has been out all season and they did not play with him last night. Tkachuk is also still out. Brent Johnson their #1 goalie still has not played a game due to injuries. What are you talking about? Also, NASH is a crap player and a 3rd liner. Not much will ever come from him. I do not like Nash if you cannot tell.

Not an even match. Who was scratched from your team last night? Oh well! It makes no difference sine St. Louis will beat you on Wednesday.

Have fun!
