Re: Gerald Everett named Rams' 'surprise offseason standout' by ESPN

It's not really fair to compare catches from a slot receiver to a TE. There's only a handful of guys that ever played the position that put anywhere near those type of numbers, such as Gonzalez and Winslow. Even an all pro like Gronk only went over 80 catches twice in his career, and never over 90. ...

Re: Rams named 4th most talented team in NFL

Brandt was a Cowboy for 28 years, retiring there. The Cowboys have talent, but likely aren't top 5. He's no doubt showing some homer bias.

Re: Can Someone Tell Me, What Was The Game Plan

I couldn't believe there weren't any rolling pockets or bootlegs. Only 1 screen, and 1 jet sweep. Hell, do they even have a draw in the playbook? And why no use of Gurley in the passing game? If it's zone all the time, why no 12 personal and have the TEs sit in the zones? McVay totally choked. Still...

Re: My detailed observation and opinion

Agreed, I was screaming for them to run the ball. To try some screens. To get Gurley involved in the passing game.

McVay choked.

We'll see what he learns from it. He's 33 years old, he'll get over it and get better.

the Rams history is to go through QBs frequently. Someone else will be the QB in 2020
Only if Goff is injured.

He had a pro bowl year - one bad outing doesn't make him a bust.

Re: Jared Goff

Goff played like shit. He missed an easy TD in the end zone to Cooks, didn't see a wide open Woods on a deep crossing route which would have been a 40+ yard play. The Rams OL was outmatched. But the worst culprit was McVay, who didn't adjust, and just ran the same stuff he always does. He was comple...

Re: Scary Article: Pats Pressuring Goff

It's weird. That Patriots didn't have a rush all season and in the playoffs they've been lights out. They've averaged 3 a game in the playoffs. Good, but not really frightening. I'd be surprised if they get that many against the Rams. We'll see more 2 TE sets would be my bet. Higby and Everett are ...

Re: you should ALL watch this

No penalties on the Saints in the first half, despite multiple delay of games in their own stadium. And a huge non-call when Mike Thomas ripped off a Rams DB's helmet in the end zone. Always a personal foul.

Re: Wildflecken's Rebuttal: Rams Were NOT Handed A Victory By Refs

The number of no calls against the Saints were huge, and we are talking a totally different game if they are calling normal penalties going in to the 4th quarter. The most egregious are the delay of game penalties. At least 3 times the clock showed 0 for at least a second before the hike. One of the...

Two delay of game non calls that extended Saint drives. And the second was when Saints were on Rams 2 yard line. They scored a TD next play. Yeah, there were multiple non delay of game penalties on the Saints. I counted three. And a play before that, Thomas ripped off the corner's helmet. I have ne...

Re: Greetings from the enemy

Honestly, I think the Rams match up better with the Saints than the Bears. Since Talib has come back, they've gone from 30.2 to 17.3 points given up per game. Some of that is the teams they played, but the D is definitely better with him in the line up. Suh showed up against Dallas. If he plays a si...
