THEY'RE 8-2 AND JUST DOMINATED THE NO. 1 OFFENSE IN THE NFL, and oh, by the way, put up 451 yards total offense themselves! What kind of question is that? And Olsen and Davis had to THINK about it before they answered!

The idiot talking heads can keep on underestimating us. Even if we're the first team to host a Super Bowl, they'll underestimate us. As long as we keep winning, that's fine by me.
That was incredibly annoying.....the NFL (decision makers) are falling all over themselves about the Rams. They NEEDED to put a good product on the field after their crap move from St Louis to LA. I was never a Jeff Fischer fan but it's almost unbelievable that they make a coaching change and add a few players and suddenly they are a contender. Just glad we shut them down today....would have been 30-7 if it wasn't for Walsh Jr. I have a question for the board.....does anyone think that Harris might be better than Sendejo? Not just because of his strip and recovery but his cover skills I like better. Run support I don't know.

I think Sendejo is faster and better at covering, but Harris is very good.

Fantastic win against a great team.

Case had a couple of passes that were ill advised but we got lucky on those throws, and we got lucky with a Rams fumble on the 1 yd line. I guess you could say we were UNlucky with the two missed FGs though.

Yeah the two other power teams didn’t look great
either. The lions barely escaped Chicago today. The
Saints had to come back and last I checked the Eagles
we’re losing a field goal only scoring Dallas Cowboys.

I can honestly say I think currently we are the best
team in football(NFC).

The other thought that scared me ... we could face
the Steelers again in a Super Bowl.

I'd like to think the Vikes were better then the Eagles, but I dont think so.

Hard to say. Is Dallas bad or are the Eagles making them look bad. I see very poor tackling.

Why would that scare you?

1. We'd be in the Super Bowl for the first time in 40 years.
2. We'd be at home, first team to ever host a Super Bowl.
3. Did I mention we'd be in the Super Bowl?

Go ahead. I dare you.
Underestimate this man.

Ive watched them in a few games, Wentz is the real deal, their D is very tough. I hope whoever gets them in the playoffs first knock them out, cause they are bad luck for the Vikings.

For me it's hard to say. It's like the Rams. Some people were saying the Rams record was due to their weak schedule. Who did the Eagles beat? Wentz will come down to earth. I think the Rams D is much better than the Eagles.

From ESPN Stats & Info: The Rams blitzed a season-high 20 times on Sunday, and Case Keenum didn't take a single sack. He went 15-of-20 for 191 yards against the blitz

I like this team. It's next man up, and the next man plays well. Harris, Alexander, and Michael Floyd all made plays today when the guys above them were out. What a game.

You know what else... I am starting to believe that Keenum can the the Vikings deep. The guys gets the job done game after game.

The Steelers might be the best set of weapons
in the last twenty or thirty years.

Yeah I would like to play someone else
like anybody else... but yes we have to
get to the game first and beat the best
the nfc has to offer first.

The eagles did come back and thump
the boys without some of their best
players. The Rams looked unstoppable
until they came to our stadium also.

It was a very solid performance today, especially considering how the Rams marched down the field on that first drive. It was very encouraging to see how the defense responded after that drive, and also to see how well the offense attacked the Rams where they were weak and managed to dominate time of possession, which I think is key to success in the playoffs.

Just another great, all-around performance against a quality opponent.
