So quick to give hope, and so quick to take it away.

On the plus side, I still like Davis, and our defense managed to shut down Frank Gore. That first half was a nice flashback to "The Greatest Show on Turf". For twenty-nine minutes of gameplay, I was proud to be a Rams fan... this has not an abundant feeling for most of my life.

We've been in a "rebuilding year" for several years, but somehow this season seems different. There are a lot of good young players on the roster, and the coaching staff is stellar. This team just might blossom into something great — or at least decent — as it matures.
