    What a dud performance on Thursday night.

    Not winning and playing like they did against a mediocre opponent did not look good.

    Their Defense was still okay. That O Line needs some help though.

    I thought the Rams did a good job beating up the QB.

    The won't even get a sniff of a wildcard slot, yet people continue to talk about the Kolbinals???

    I'm AMAZED at the amount of hype that their 4-0 start generated. They are mediocre, at best. Many, many holes, yet the sports reporters were talking about them like they were the next dynasty.

    The 4-0 Cards against the 0-4 Saints... I would have taken the Saints, but now the Cards are back to anonymity where they belong.

    Who is the official that proclaimed the Cardinals not for real?

    And how did he get that job?

    Depends how you define "for real".

    The Cards, Rams, and Seahawks all have young, improving defenses, and all have major offensive holes.

    That means they can surprise a lot of teams. And they can really beat you up when they are on their home turf. But their offenses will struggle on the road, and their defenses won't look so special there.

    4-1 is now considered mediocre?? I guess there are only two "real" teams in the league then? Falcons and Texans?

    Kevin Kolb kept having that look on the sideline after every series, like he just wanted to ask someone "another Tylenol please, my head still hurts"

    I believe the Rams are 3-0 at home. Give them some credit.
    If the 49ers falter, the NFC west could get messy.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers did stumble.

    I hope the Rams don't do well this year. When I was in Las Vegas in August, I almost put down $100 on the Rams to win the Super Bowl at odds of 100-1. That would be a huge regret.

    They could do well without making the superbowl. Wouldn't 10-6 and a first round playoff loss be considered 'well' for the rams?

    If it wasn't official then, it is official now.

    A brutal loss at home to the Bills.
