Happy holidays Rams fans. We wish everybody happy holidays and a happy new year. Now everybody has a wish list during the holiday season, here is a wish list for the common Rams fan.
The last decade for the Rams and their fans have been pretty tough to say the lease. The bandwagoners have officially left the ship and only the die hards remain. Since 2007 the Rams have failed to win five games in four of seven years.
The Rams have not finished with a .500 record at 8-8 since 2006. Winning in Seattle this week and accomplishing that, with their backup quarterback nonetheless, would mean a lot for this team and Rams fans everywhere.
A Redskins Loss and A Texans Win
Two years ago now the Rams general manager Les Snead and head coach Jeff Fisher pulled off one of the biggest trades in draft history with the Washington Redskins, exchanging their number two pick in which they chose Robert Griffin III in exchange for their second round pick that season, last year’s first round pick and this year’s first round pick.
It just so happens that this year’s first round pick is guaranteed to land in the top five and if the Redskins lose to the New York Giants and the HoustonTexans beat the Tennessee Titans, that pick will turn into the number one overall pick.
With that pick the Rams could take a very talented player, or they could once again pull off a blockbuster trade. The Redskins had no idea that they could possibly be giving the Rams a number one pick when they pulled off the trade. As of right now the future for the Rams looks extremely bright. As they say, “Tis the season of giving.”
Robert Quinn To Win The Deacon Jones Award and Defensive Player Of The Year
In the offseason Rams Nation very sadly lost one of their greatest players in team history in Deacon Jones who passed away. In memory of the Deacon, the NFL decided to name the sack award after him.
Fittingly in its first year in existence it is very possible that a Rams player will win the award. With one week left to play Robert Quinn leads the league in sacks with 18. Robert Mathis was gifted a sack after the game giving him 17.5. It will be a close race as Quinn only lead by half a sack, but at this point it seems as if it was meant to be.
Rams fans everywhere have also been campaigning for Quinn to win the defensive player of the year award. Heck, Chris Long got in on the campaign during his post game press conference last week.
These are three things that Rams fans are wishing for this holiday season. Once again we hope everybody has a great and safe holiday this holiday season and as always, go Rams!
