    I want them to lose too Laz, but not for the same reasons. I want them to play as hard as they can and lose to the Rams so BB can rip them apart and make them feel like they haven't learned anything as motivation to work harder. Can you imagine the motivation after every reporter kills them for losing to the Rams, esp with the great performances against the Saints and Falcons

    Yeah you're right, this team is so polished and established that they don't need to improve on anything they might need to do in the regular season. This is a genious aproach, as a matter of fact the defense used this same aproach well into the regular season and playoffs last year!

    What is with the posting during games?  After every bad play it's "The [D][pass rush][O'Brien] stinks!"  And every good play it's "We're invincible!"  Don't you people watch football?  There are ups and downs in every game. Settle the F down.

    Laz, I have to agree with you. 

    The Rams have no reputation whatsoever in the NFL.  Losing to them is no sin.  They will not meet the Patriots in January.  If the Patriots were going to lose to anyone, the Rams are an excellent choice.

    BB has already calculated how winning this game will affect the standings.  If he wins, people will fear the Patriots.  If he loses, they won't.  So, losing affects future standings positively and winning affects it negatively.  What to do, what to do....

    Now let's look at personnel in the game.  BB put Kevin Faulk in on first down and let him run it up the middle.  Would BB ever do this in the regular season?  Not on your life he wouldn't, not unless Fred Taylor was injured, Sammy Morris was injured, Laurence Maroney was injured and maybe Benny Green-Ellis was limping a bit.  Faulk is a third down back. 

    Is Brandon Tate on the first team now?  He's ok, but...

    Riddle me this:  Ron Brace got a sack?  What was Ron Brace doing in the game in the first half in a position where he could get a sack?  Isn't he a run-stopper?  A more fundamental question:  is Brace in the starting lineup now? 

    I assume that BB has tested his starting 11 as a unit two weeks ago or one week ago.  This week he's playing a substitution game, putting random players into the game with the starters to see how the team does.  The Rams' coach and their first team may be all about winning against a good team, the Patriots, with a famous Super Bowl victory over the Rams in 2001, but the Patriots aren't playing the same game.

    Next, I have a suspicion that the Patriots are being ordered to commit a couple of fouls. 

    Tully Banta-Cain ran his helmet into the quarterback's helmet, in a third down situation where the QB heaved it up just in time.  As it turned out, McCourty had great coverage (and the receiver is out for the season but that wasn't McCourty's doing), but the play turned from a fourth down punt to a first down with 15 yards.   

    Butler committed another howler on third down, illegal contact more than 5 yards downfield, giving the Rams another break.  He committed an amazing fourth down penalty a week or two ago. 

    Tully Banta-Cain also anticipated the snap count a tenth of a second early once.  Interesting. 

    My theory is that BB took his guys aside and said, you've made the team, but there's something I'd like you to do. 

    My next question would be, would BB rather that the players studied Cincinnati video yesterday or St. Louis video?  Which one will win more games in the real season?

    Finally, would BB want to give away any play that wasn't vanilla?  Were the remaining plays predictable? 

    I bring all of this up because I remember saying the exact same thing last preseason.

    If it makes people feel better I counted two flagrant holding non-penalties on Randy Moss on bombs near the goal line.  These things happen.

    I'll put some numbers on this.  New England's power rating drops from 14.2 to 12.3, a relatively tremendous plunge.  St. Louis rises from 2.6 to 4.4.  Elsewhere, Indianapolis took the gas pipe to a respectable team.  Indy drops from 12.1 to 11.1 and Green Bay rises from 9.9 to 11.3.  Maybe two teams are busy playing the diminished expectations game tonight.  Captain Underpants said as much about the Colts earlier, that they underperform in preseason.

    After some thought I've decided that I'm not going to stick up for Laz's theory twice, and it's not because it's not true.  It's because the rest of the world might get wise to BB's trick.

    lol sorry Laz I missed it. But to be fair I was trying to read when Gronk scored that second TD so I was a bit distracted at the moment

    Just watched Bill's press conference, you can kind of see through what he is doing...Inside he is obviously happy about the defense. I'm sure after he walks into the locker room from the podium he'll cogratualate them on a job well done. I also like the way he is secretly making sure that the defense is full of guys that come out and let the other team punch them in the face in front of 70k fans.

    Ron Brace got hurt.  Meriweather got hurt. The defense gave up over 450 yards. The Pats D made Bradford look like Manning and Brees rolled into one. We will know soon enough whether they are that bad or not.

    It's just preseason.  Work out kinks.  Tinker with some new plays.  Defense is young and is learning.  Anybody that wants to jump off a bridge over a preseason loss, regardless of how long the starters played is re.tarded.

    oh, thank you Antibody. That is very nice of you to say that. You seem to be a kind man too, are you single? I would like to go to a Patriots game, maybe you could ask me and then take me to lunch then the Patriots game and then Dinner and you could let me move into your house then marry you , then divorce you and kick you out. Is that ok?

So, just reading your enlightening idea here mthrl :  Overall you're tellin' us here that when YOU finally become an NFL Coach, the whole Preseason "soft approach" under the notion that it's by-and-large, a player & scheme test-run In order to gear you up Best, for Regular Season Success...so, I'm gatherin'-THIS is all fallin' asunder, when you get your coaching shot?  Far, faaar Less Team positioning drills, makin' way towards formation drills, making way towards play execution, And ALL the while-spend your time by seeing who excels & HOW they excel and under what conditions, plays, schemes that best fit their talents...ALL Gone.  Oh-also, any & all even semblance of a notion of player mentality, team psychology...nada, nothin... Training Camp DAY #1 -We gear up 110% by game-planning for the first 4 PreSeason Games...And I mean, We are throwin' EVERYthing at 'em, he!! or high-water.  Every play from the play book...EVERYthing.  1st String Starters play for ALL, unless we're up by 47 points with 2 minutes to go...then maybe 1/4 are 2nd string top substitutes.  AND, I'm sending these guys All-Out-sacrificing life, limb.  I want EVERY single play called just like it's gonna be called in Week 1.  An' I'm tellin' you=Practice...1/2 day practice, because the rest of the time is Film Work & Study in order to breakdown those 4 preseason nightmares.       Look guys, mthrl's right: Time & Research, Effort & Training HAVE to go SOME-where people...So, IF we're lookin' good thus far, and we're thinkin' that we have the players, the system, the schemes AND the plays In order to make it All Work when it actually counts, mthrl's right...Let's ALL do the Very BEST we can in order to sabotage & largely undermine ourselves, o.k.?  C'mmmon now people, The Preseason Lombardi is up for grabs !!!

    You changed my mind! Thank god, I now see the light...Amen brother, amen.
    Clearly what Bill is trying to do is get players with little NFL experience on defense and show them that it's ok to get punched in the mouth. Heck this is the way we did it when we were winning them Super Bowls. Plus it feels so much better when the team that's beating you down is the worst team in the league. Heck it even helps that you did it in front of your crowd, because after a long camp, the last thing you want to do is play with you know...Toughness.

    The Rams were 8 for 11 on third downs! This was a rookie throwing by the way.
    Did you watch the press conference by Bill after? Did he look like he was happy and he was so just waiting to roll out those awsome plays come regular season? The only way this team stops anyone on defense this year is by smoke and mirrors and some serious, serious coaching. Get ready for pressure provided by an all out blitz, because there is no way any rush is going to be generated by four guys. Just like last year, the year before and the year before that, come to think of it the year before that as well. Sorry, you take away Brady and Belicheck and tell me where this team is. Stop drinking the coolaid, they didn't do enough to improve that front seven this off season and it will kill anything Belicheck and Brady will do in the end.
