Of those, probably #2, we just laid an egg. Isn't the norm. Tampa will suffer because of it.

Desire was a good deal of it. They had it, we didn't. The Rams looked enraged. I didn't think they had it in them at this point but low and behold they showed up. They did make a lot of mistakes which shows why they have struggled..stupid penalties, dropped passes, giving up a defensive TD, but their defense was relentless. They were comitted to not letting Brees stand back there and pulling off another Colts circus act.

I voted for overlooked, but like Beastmode said, they had the spark and we just didn't.

Talent, desire,and skill if you have all 3 you usually overcome. I hope the boys read this and it rubs their chaped butts even worse than the Rams did. They can thank themselves for getting manhandled not the Rams.

I ask myself how can a team that, except for two plays, the Colston fumble and the bad play call at the end of the game, probably would have beaten the defending Super Bowl champions, and to some degree the Texans game, could lose to a team as bad as the Rams?

We overlooked the Rams plain and simple...we were flat and no fire...we messed around the whole first half..never committed to the running game..and that's what happens when you **** around...you lose

Overlooked them and underperformed. Thought we were going to coast with previous weeks gameplan.
Can't put my finger on it but one week we're as hot as molten lava, the second week as cold as an iceberg.
