WEEK 3 – St. Louis Rams @ Dallas Cowboys

Prediction: LOSS. (2-1)  I love what Jeff Fisher has done with the St. Louis Rams. As head coach, he has given them a toughness they have lacked since “The Greatest Show on Turf” regime left. Fisher also has a great eye for talent and he’s willing to take risks. For example, he drafted cornerback Janoris Jenkins last year in the second round of the NFL Draft despite reports of some major off-the-field problems. It paid off as Jenkins finished second in the rookie of the year balloting. It’s choices like that that helped Fisher take the 2-14 Rams to 7-8-1 last season.

After struggling on the road early last year, the Rams finished strong. They went 3-1-1 at the end of the season. Although they lost some games to fairly lame opponents, they did beat the San Fransisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins last year. And they are only getting better. It’s coach against coach here for me, Fisher vs. Garrett. I’m calling an upset, Rams win.

    Dallas will be below .500.

    On paper, the Boys should beat Chiefs, Rams and Chargers. But games aren’t played on paper. As you pointed out, the Boys are usually their own biggest problem.
    Boys usually come fired up and prepared for the first game. This year Gmen will be ready for them. Eli always plays great in TX. After the first game, JG usually doesn’t have the Boys ready for any game.
    Don’t worry so much about the new D scheme. It’s a lot simplier then Ryan’s D. I believe our players are better suited to a 4-3 anyway. Better to have Ware and Spencer playing their natural positions and rushing the passer every down.
