Rams Continue Prep for Niners

Posted by nickwagoner on December 23, 2010 – 10:04 PM

– The Rams got back to practice Thursday afternoon and are now one step closer to Sunday’s game. They have one more practice Friday and will have a slightly altered Saturday because of Christmas.

– OT Jason Smith rolled his ankle in practice and was limited. He’s expected to be OK and X rays were negative.

– DE Chris Long returned to practice and was also limited. RB Ken Darby was the same.

– TE Michael Hoomanawanui did not practice as he had a small setback earlier this week. His status remains day to day according to coach Steve Spagnuolo.

– The 49ers have yet to officially name a starter but it appears Troy Smith will be back in the saddle.

    Jason Smith gets hurt more than any other OL that I have ever scene. What’s up w/that?

    If this years Rams team looks & sounds familiar,it’s not a coincidence.This is awfully reminiscent of the late ’80’s Dallas Cowboys teams.In ’89,Dallas,under new ownership & coach,only won once in ’89,as did the Rams last year.In 1990,Dallas improved 6 games in the win column & went 7-9.(in fact,if it weren’t for a victory by the Saints in the last game of the season,Dallas would’ve been playoff bound).In ’91,Dallas continued their uphill climb & improved to 11-5.They beat the Bears in the wild card on the road,but lost to lions in the divisional round.The following year in ’92,they went 13-3,beat division rival Philadelphia in the divisional round,(who,mind you,had an impressive opening round victory over the talented Saints)beat the 49ers in soggy conditions in Candlestick park in the championship game,& ultimately annilihate the Buffalo Bills in the Super Bowl.That was the start of a dynasty that won the SB IN ’93 & 95.So far,the Rams have 7 victories.How’s this going to play out? We’ll find that out next week in Seattle.With a little luck,smart play in all 3 facets of the game,we’ll brush aside the Seahawks & roll into the playoffs with some momentum,desire,pressure experience,& confidence.However,win or lose next week,the blue prints for success are in place for a promising future.I’ll be the first to admit that I was adamant on getting Suh for the 1st round choice.However,Bradford has proven me wrong.I haven’t been this hopeful in quite some time.Good luck boys,next week & going forward.The Rams will,once again,be a force to be reckened with.And it couldn’t come @ a better time.
