Seahawks vs. Rams: Behind Enemy Lines with ‘Ramblin’ Fan’


The Seattle Seahawks are fresh off of hearing news that their star receiver Percy Harvin has been traded and they are still recovering from a tough loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6.

So against their division-rival St. Louis Rams on Sunday, can the Seahawks get in the right mindset to beat the Rams?

Seahawks fans already know about the Rams, but to learn more about their 2014-15 team, I spoke with Mr. Blaine Grisak, the editor of, our FanSided brother that covers everything about the Rams.

Here is our conversation:

1. The Rams nearly upset the Seahawks on Monday Night Football last year in St. Louis. What do they have to do this year to keep it a close game and this time, potentially, come out with a W?

I think sticking to the run game and having a good day on the ground is going to be a huge key to the Rams standing a chance against the defending champions.

The teams that have beaten the Seahawks this season both had success on the ground, and the Rams will have to do the same.

Secondly, the Rams can’t turn the ball over. The Rams had two key turnovers in last year’s matchup in St. Louis. They have to do a better job at taking care of the football.

2. Austin Davis took over at QB for the Rams after Sam Bradford went out with a season ending injury a few months ago. How effective do you feel Davis has been and what does he need to do to beat Seattle’s tough secondary?

Davis had done very well given the circumstance. Had the Rams receivers not dropped two passes you could argue the Rams are 3-2 and not 1-4. Davis has given this offense great energy, something they didn’t have with Bradford.

To beat the Seattle Seahawks, Davis is going to have to stay composed and take care of the football if the Rams have any shot at beating their division rival.

3. Little-known Zac Stacy tore up the Seahawks defense in St. Louis last year. Seattle knows who he is now, but who is another player on the Rams (whom most Seahawks fans might not know of) that could prove to be a difference maker in Sunday’s game?

This may be a name that Seahawks fans already know, but receiver Brian Quick has really came out and come into his own in 2014. If it’s any receiver that is going to rack up some yards against the Legion of Boom, its going to be Quick.

Rookie running back Tre Mason also got some snaps last week against the 49ers and had a good day, if the Rams give him reps this week he is another name to watch.

Lastly, cornerback E.J. Gaines in the Rams secondary is another player to watch. For a rookie, he’s really held his own on the outside.

4. What has been the Rams biggest weakness the season?

This may come surprising to a team that witnessed the Rams get to the quarterback 11 times last season, but the Rams have really struggled getting to the quarterback. The Rams have one sack through five games which is the lowest number through that many games in NFL history.

5. What do you predict will be the final score of the game and why?

I think the Seahawks are on a mission after losing to the Cowboys. They can’t afford to go 3-3 and fall further in the NFC West.

I think the Seahawks win 27-16.

Special thanks, again, to Mr. Blaine Grisak from for taking the time to share his thoughts on the Rams-Seahawks Week 7 matchup.
