It's something I've been saying/posting for awhile now. If we can come out of those games at 3-2 or 4-1, look out NFL! 5-0, and this town will be ready to explode!
But, even if we come out at 2-3 or 1-4, it's not time to throw in the towel, especially if they play all of those games close and fight to the end. The only thing I see that could wreck the whole season is, as always, injuries. JMHO!
The Rams have a similar super-difficult schedule to start. Even if they start off 1-6, even 0-7, I'd say they can still end up 7-9 or 8-8.
