Every fan of a team outside the NFC West hates the NFC West. Their number one reason: the NFC West friggin’ sucks!
But the St. Louis Rams went from winning a total of only six games in a combined three seasons’ worth of games to winning seven (and possibly eight if they win Sunday night) games, en rout to possibly capturing their first division title since the 2003 season. That’s an astonishing improvement considering the team has been in a rut (understatement?) for the past three years.
As a die-hard, long-time St. Louis Rams fan, I’m elated. Troy’s Thoughts on Sports has been an internet entity since March 2007. At the time I created the blog, I was raving about the Rams’ 2007 season, in hopes that they would put a winning product out on the field. They won three games that year… two games in 2008… one game in 2009.
Nonetheless I continued to blog about the Rams, questioning Marc Bulger’s integrity, demanding everyone’s collective respect for Steven Jackson and wondering why people had forgotten about Torry Holt, each time with vitriolic compassion (my New Years Eve paradox of the day).
