If it hasn’t been said already, it needs to. Rams Fans: We F***ing deserve this.
Nickel Robey-Coleman may or may not have committed a pass interference foul in the dwindling moments of the NFL Championship game, but that should not take away from Our moment.
Fewer fans have had it harder than us. From 2007-2009 the Rams won a total of six games over three seasons. That’s a 3-13 2007, a 2-14 2008 and a 1-15 2009.
Up until last season Rams fans hadn’t experienced a winning season since 2003. Up until last week, Rams fans hadn’t experienced a playoff win since 2004. Up until today Rams fans hadn’t experienced a championship game since 2001.
To say the least, we were overdue.
We went through: Jamie Martin, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Marc Bulger, Chris Chandler, Brock Berlin, Trent Green, Kyle Boller, Keith Null, Sam Bradford, AJ Feeley, Kellen Clemens, Shaun Hill, Austin davis, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles to get here.
We saw Steven Jackson’s career wasted. Danario Alexander, Chris Givens, Austin Pettis, and Mardy Gilyard as hopefuls to take over the greatness’ of Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce.
Scott Linehan, Steve Spagnuolo, and Jeff Fisher have come to try and make this right, but in the end it was 32 year old Sean McVay who everybody said was too young to coach.
The national media will try to make less of what was a great win. The story will be how the saints are the unluckiest franchise over the last two seasons.
Try UNlucky for 15 years and then we’ll talk.
Nobody can take away this win. They may try to taint it, but that doesn’t change the simple fact that the RAMs are here and the saints and 29 other teams are not.
Rams fans: We are going to the super bowl. That’s right, i said it. We are going to the super bowl and dammit we deserve it.
