    Rams Owner SageBow was seen visibly upset in his box seat. One of the most storied rivalries in NFLHC history, Rams vs Vikings usually means a lot in the playoff picture for the NFC. However, both teams have not been meeting expectations thus far. Both teams knew that a win against a rival would go a long way in not just appeasing the fan base, but making a big change to their season. Unfortunately for the Rams, their opponent walked away victorious today.

     

    "It was a good game against the Vikings, and it is unfortunate that we lost. Nevertheless, I will be looking into the team to find out what we can do to right the ship." he tweeted out after the game.

    Rams defensive coordinator Dacder was interviewed after the game on his way down from the press box. He was visibly upset and his right hand was swollen and red. 

     

    Interviewer: "This was your first game against the Vikings and obviously a tough loss, what do you think of your defense following the game?"

     

    Dacder: "It was a *expletive* mess. We couldn't get that *expletive* Henson down for *expletive*. How do you think I feel? I'm *expletive* embarrassed. 

     

    Interviewer: "These 23 points were the most given up this season by the revamped Rams defense, with almost all the Vikings offense coming on the ground. What do you think allowed the Vikings to have such success running the ball against you?"

     

    Dacder: "Well it was a few things. For one thing our *expletive* defense didn't want to tackle the *expletive* runningback! That, and our defensive scheme was weak. I didn't call for a heavy box soon enough and that was on me."

     

    Interviewer: "How do you think the Rams will bounce back from this?"

     

    Dacder: "We're gonna come out angry. If I were Dallas I would be very careful, because I know for a *expletive* fact that Fazande is pissed as hell right now. And nothing in the entire NFL is scarier than a pissed off Andrew Fazande."

     

    Interviewer: "And one last thing, there are rumors of you potentially leaving for a head coaching job next season. What's happening there?"

    Dacder: "No comment. That's not what's on my mind right now."
