nothing to do with baseball

Sorry about that last post. I don't know what was going on in my head.

The Rams got some props from the geniuses at Sportscenter last night/very early this morning. "...best helmets in the NFL." Well, at least they've got that going for them.

Speaking of the Rams, hooray for Jim Haslett. I loved him in NO. I suspect that a big part of the players' problems in the first four games revolved around lack of leadership and lack of respect on either side of the table. The defense may not have been stellar (to say the least), but between the in-fighting, the release of Brown (most likely without Haslett's approval), and the absolute absence of offense (which can put a mighty hefty strain on a defense because they end up on the field for 40 minutes at a time), there was never really any hope for Jim or his guys to make a difference. I think Jim may be just what this team needs, and he was right there all along.

I'm calling it right now, folks. 12-4. 11-5. We'll just pretend these four games were part of an extended pre-season and give Jimmy a break.
