    Didn't see a game thread it's probably buried underneath the avalanche of coulda woulda shouldas from the KC game.

    But isn't it time to move on we've all said all we can say about the last game.

    This one is actually bigger - conference opponent, staying over .500, and defending home turf.

    Our D has improved each game and will be challenged here by a Rams team that is well coached and moves the ball pretty well. They hung in there when getting beat bad early in Atlanta and made a close game of it.

    But I think our Oline has their best game yet - Waters will be worked in almost fulltime and Tfred and Leary are growing each week and learning from their mistakes. No doubt we will force the run more and I think Murray can have his first breakout game this Sunday.

    50/50 game with the way our offense is playing. Our defense will show up but our offense will probably be sketch. We will have redzone problems and let an inferior team keep the game very close and then it will come down to a field goal by us or them to win it.

    It will probably be close. The Rams kept it close against the Falcons in Atlanta after being down 21-0. Most NFL games are close nowadays that's just the way it is. I think we will get a turnover or two this week

    I will go on record as saying I am scared.

    I fear the rams are better coached than we are, will be more physical on both lines and will hit a bunch of big plays on us because of bradfords arm and their speed.

    If we lose this one, well we might be in big trouble. Could end up 1-4 or 3-5 agan.

    also, just to put this out there before some guy from Alaska or Zimbabwe tells me local fans are not good fans and the stadium sucks.....this will be the worst home crowd of the year so if you are going to the game be advised.

    here is why, Noon start....poor crowds for noon starts, Front running fans who bought tickets to root for dez do not respect the rams so when they make plays these fans will get mad and boo or leave......The crowd here is driven by offense not defense like in most cities.....The way our offense looked sunday I have a feeling we might struggle for a couple of weeks before things are straightened it will keep the crowd quiet.

    the rest of the season at the stadium should be very good......of course if we lose this one who knows.

    but I fear the rams. This is a lot like fisher bringing in the titans in 2010 when we desperately need to win and everyone just assumed we would...then we didn't.

    but hey for those of you who hate garrett their is hope for you, if the rams this one garrett is in big trouble. Just think, when we fire garrett we are going to hire zimmer. So if that doesn't get you excited I don't know what will.

    I am going to spin some vinyl, work and cheer myself up.

    It all depends what offense shows up for the Cowboys.

    Are we going to make mistakes and play not to lose or are we going to blow the Rams doors off?

    Teams are forcing us to put drives together and that is our weakness. Hopefully we can get a few big plays and get TD's off those plays.

    I'd like to see Dunbar or Randle get some touches this week too.

    Rams are decent but theres no reason we should lose this game. If we just play ablittle better than then last 2 weeks it should be a win. But you never know. This is more of an us beat us game. We are good at that. Lol

    If we attack the Rams with our horizontal passing game and two yard runs it will be an instant reply of last weeks game. It will look like the Cleveland or Tampa Bay games from last season. Nothing changes if we do not dictate the game.

    I feel rams are better than the chiefs,we will lose if we play the plodding conservative game.

    Agree with theebs totally. This is a scary game. Young, pretty talented team on the rise with rising expectations, coming off a loss, with a top-notch coach, in here for a noon game. The Rams aren't some great team, but they do have weapons and IIRC they were second in the league in sacks last year. So I'm a little worried about Tony. Those ribs aren't right and I suspect that played a big part in his inaccuracy later in the Chiefs game.

    The Rams have a ver good defensive front that will most likely cause us some problems. Hopefully we can overcome it, but I see us struggling in the run game again. Hope I'm wrong.

    Let's put it this way. If we can't beat the Rams at home, after a loss, then we are going to have a very bad season. If not the Rams at home, who will we beat?

    The overhyping of the Rams in this thread. Unbelievable. The Rams are very young and raw in a lot of areas. And someone saying the Rams are better than the Chiefs give me a break.

    Well, aren't you a ray of sunshine this morning?

    I think this Rams team is pretty good, too. Welcome to the NFL. Bradford hasn't even been sacked yet this season, so, if nothing else, we'll have a pretty good gauge of our DL pressure by Sunday night.

    Even at 1-2, and I do think we'll probably beat the Rams at home, the season is not going to do down the drain in week three. I agree, though, it would be a bad happening, and it's definitely possible.

    Sorry bout that.

    This was the September game I have been worried about all along. Losing to kc just makes it more important.

    Right now Vegas has us as 3.5 or 4 point favorites. When you take away the 3 points for home field it is almost a toss up. We aren't getting (or earning) much respect from the guys who study this for a living. They had the KC game nailed pretty good.

    Dan Bailey will likely win this one for us

    Plus with our coaches we never really have an edge on anyone. Our edge is with our talent. Garrett and Callahan give us no advantage.

    Hate to say it, But, I see Dallas losing this one. Rams defense plays tough, not in the beginning of a game. They are slow starters. Unfortunately, Dallas doesn't have a team that "should" beat the Rams. If Dallas doesn't get up early and stay up... It's over. Dallas has shown early in this season the lack of holding leads or coming back from trailing to win.
