St Louis, Missouri Just when you thought it couldn't get tougher for the Rams to regain that NFC West title; the schedule makers decided to hand the Rams arguably the toughest schedule imaginable. "We were tested last year but we were able to come out on top. This year might be a different story but who knows, maybe other teams are looking at their schedules and circling the Rams as a tough game for them as well. All I know is that the team will need to be focused and hit the ground running. The division has become a lot tougher with Seattle bringing in a proven coach, and the Cardinals have improved in key areas as well with their acquisition of Arian Foster and running back and Peko at DT. Our goal is to win the division, anything less is unacceptable. We can sit here and cry about the schedule we have, but at the end of the day it is what it is and we got to go out there and get enough Ws on the board that come the end of the season we are in with a shot at the division title, or worst case scenario, a wildcard spot." The Rams start off the season with a bang, as they host the Chicago Bears in what could be billed as the GOTW. Following that game the Rams stay at home for their week 2 showdown against the Superbowl winners, The Bengals; for week 3 against the Cardinals, and week 4 against the Browns before finally hitting the road to Baltimore in week 5. A much needed week 6 bye will be followed by a trip to the Desert to take on Zona, a home game against the 49ers, and a visit to Hotlanta in week 9 to face off against the #1 NFC seed from a year ago, the Falcons. Week 10 sees the Seahawks come to the Lou, followed by a visit to Washington in week 11 and an away date with the Steelers in week 12. The Rams then travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks and their 12th man in week 13, with the end of the season also giving the team no favors with the last 4 games being a home game against the Cowboys, @ the Giants, against the Eagles, and closing out @ San Fran. "If we still have a shot to get a playoff berth by the end of the Giants game, then I am confident we can win our final two games. Looking at our cap situation we can ill-afford a top 10 draft pick, as the roster is already crippled with multiple top 5 selections from futile years in the past. Hopefully the fans can make the Edward Jones Dome a real homefield advantage this year as our success as a whole starts and ends with how well we can perform at home"
