Re: Rams vs Vikes------------Rams vs Eagles

The Rams don't have as much talent as the Eagles do at the moment. I'd rate the Rams as better only at RB and DB, and the Eagles are good there. We've got a great DL, but so do the Eagles, and they are far, far deeper there. They get a pro bowl LT back, and are younger and deeper on their OL. Their ...

Re: Tight End

Oh, I think we'll see a lot of the defense - but because the offense scores quickly!

This is not a grind em up O.

Still, we have to hope out LT and C stay healthy. Outside of Goff, those two guys health might be the most important on the team.

Re: Connor Barwin

Yeah, I think so. Wait him out, offer him a moderate contract if he gets no takers. We definitely need the veteran help, but at the right price.

I want to see what a year when he has a healthy offseason with the team shows. TA may be gone next year, but getting him an incentive to do his best this year is definitely a plus.

Re: Brandon Cooks WR is now a Ram

Yeah, not sure I care for trading 1s and 2s for guys with one year on their contract and no particular reason to think you'll sign for the long term. He's a threat, a Desean Jackson type, who was third in the league last year in catches of 40 yards or more. Definitely will take the top off the defen...

Re: Experts Not Sold on Rams: Prefer Vikings and Eagles

The Eagles are getting a pro bowl QB back, a pro bowl LT back, added a monster run stuffer in Ngata and Michael Bennet at edge. And they are the defending champ. Yeah, they should be ranked ahead of the Rams at the start of the season. The Vikings handled us last year and may have upgraded at QB. An...

Re: No chance Rams sign Hankins, no matter what imo

There aren't any quality edge rushers in the FA class now, barely any in the first place. If you sign Hankins to a team friendly deal, you can solve your NT position and that's more draft capital. You can ALSO pick up a run stuffer in the middle rounds, as they are less valued. But if you think ther...

Re: I'm not 100% certain that Suh would be the best use of the cap space

Ok, let's say you don't go Suh. Who else could you get? Hankins is a more natural fit at NT. He's not a pass rusher, but if anything he's a better run stuffer. He had 40+ tackles for the Colts last year in 15 games. That's a lot for a NT. Not as disruptive at all, but the run defense would immediate...

Re: I'm not 100% certain that Suh would be the best use of the cap space

The big issue for me is what you are going to have to subtract if you go for Suh. If you aren't going to resign Barwin and you have to let Barron go, IMO that's too much. You are starting 4 new LBs in a D that is based on stellar LB play. If you can keep Barron and Barwin resigns for a decent salary...

Re: Let’s take a Vote, Who wants Suh?

At the right price, as so many others have stated. $10-12 million, yes. More than that, it depends on whether he plays hard all the time - for his $20 million a year contract with Miami, that was the knock on him, he took a lot of plays off. It also depends on what the Rams think they can get in the...

Re: Make My EFFing DREAMs Come TRUE With SUH!!!!!

For the last few years in Miami, Suh is a 5.5 sack a year guy with about 30 tackles, and he simply doesn't play hard all the time. Unless he comes cheap, he isn't worth it. And did Suh play next to Aaron Donald..... Please USE your Brain...... you gotta double team Donald and Suh ... so who's block...

It depends on how much salary he commands, but he's not going to come cheap. A discount for him IS $12 million. And he hasn't been a big effort guy in Miami, I guess we'd have to see if he came to the West Coast. The other issue is the LB corps is in dire need of a talent infusion. And a bunch of ro...

Re: No to Suh - YES to Hurst

If he can be motivated to play hard, great.

If not, the money is more useful elsewhere.

Last 4 years he's average ~5.5 sacks a year and 30 tackles. The ability is there, but once he signed that big contract the effort wasn't.

Re: Suh to visit the Rams

At best a long shot - I don't see Suh taking a big discount, and he's got other teams with deep playoff aspirations such as New Orleans that he's talking to.

If they talk him into taking a significant discount I'm all for electing Snead king!

Re: Rams Trying to Sign Terrelle Pryor??

That being said, a big WR as a red zone threat and if he's willing to block would be a plus. If he's truly that fast then you can see why they tried him out at WR. He's still not a polished product and likely wouldn't be a major weapon, but he'd definitely be useful.

4.41, Albert Breer reported one scout timed him at 4.38. So pretty fast for someone 6'5" 232 pounds.

Is he still that fast? No idea.

Re: Unfucking Believable !!!

Yep, I'm on board too. He has a full offseason healthy with the team, he still has elite speed (faster than Watkins), he's a great change of pace runner. And you get him for the same price as if you cut him, unless he has a break out year and you are happy to pay him. Austin just bet big on himself....
