    Rams are moving the ball with ease in the 1st half
    We made them look like Steel Curtain last week.

    Since we're on the subject of semi-Steeler matters, Dobbs and Conner tearing 'em up for the Steelers West.

    Dobbs is going to get his first career victory and Conner is over a hundred yards midway through the 3rd quarter.

    The way Dobbs has been playing, I wonder if we perhaps made a mistake letting him go haha.

    Don’t worry the Khan artist is stockpiling draft picks for a run at McVay

    I mean...

    The Rams also know the 49ers far better than the Steelers do. Add in the fact that Sean McVay could draw up concepts that Matt Canada could in his wildest dreams and one begins to understand why the score is the way it is currently.

    Purdy looks average at best when guys aren't wide open to where he can play pitch and catch. We are such garbage on both sides of the ball as far as coaching. Blow it all up for pete's sake.

    Yea, it was 20-17 at one point, I was gonna say they don't look so dominant to me vs. the 5-win Rams. I thought their brutality of smashing us so thoroughly was due to how outstanding they were, not all all to our own deficiencies? :shrug:

    The way that I see it, the first 2 or 3 games are just an extension of the pre season. What you see in those weeks is rarely what you get at the end of the season, or even week 8 for that matter. That's why I don't over react.

    I think the deemphasis on physical training camps and the reduction of preseason games, and the playing time within them, are driving this. Yeah, it's probably having a positive impact on player health and safety, but it's happening at the cost of a lack or preparedness for the season.

    I was pulling for Dobbs to get a win as well. Fell apart in the 4th

    Dobbs and the Cards blew a 28-7 3rd quarter lead. Dobbs still looking for that first win in year #7.

    I believe I predicted a close game many times earlier this week when others said they would blow out the Rams. They are a division game, and it's almost always close between them.

    He started the game 6 for 6 and was making some right throws early on. Later he tailed off a bit.

    Good point guy. I think all football fans overreact to the early games in the season. Hell, we started 2-6 and damn near had a chance to lose yet another first round Playoff game last season. Although, I do believe we'd have gave them hell if we made it last year.

    Someone told them they could lose the #1 pick if they win.
