Re: This defense is overrated.

I think right now the Rams are 2nd in Offense and 9th in defense , and 4-0. I guess there's always room for improvement if your feeling dissatisfied.

Re: Should Fickens not kickens ??

I'll just say this, if he was one of the 32 best FG kickers in the world he would have been on another team already. He's a fill in, a place holder. Last year he started slow and missed at least his first attempt if not his second too. He got better each game. The Thursday night kick he missed was m...

Re: Cooper Kupp? Convince me

I don't even see how this came to be a question. Kupp is terrific! Last year he started as a rookie, and some of the catches he made were phenomenal. He's had a couple of tough drops but nothing that I would call so major as to question his ability. He's money on most plays to him and his career has...

Re: Donald's Greed and Ego: Tag, Tag, and Release

I don't want the team to be hamstrung signing AD. As good as he is, it is a team sport and his position doesn't score TD's. $21M per is generous. The Rams could get two stars for $21m per year and might be a better team for it. Love that they signed Cooks and Gurley. In this case, the Rams are right...

Re: Gurley and Salaries

Money and player salaries are an endless loop. It's a business. Athletes are only valuable until they are not. Allegiances are rare and temporary. I wouldn't want to be an owner that has to make a living off of their sports team. But then I guess most do not have that problem.

Re: Can Rams, Aaron Donald bridge the gap?

I've no idea what AD's reps want. Apparently a lot! What I don't want is what was first reported way back when, a clause allowing AD an out after 2 years. How dumb would that be. If he'd signed 2 years ago it seems to me he would have been that much closer to a second, no third contract. I don't thi...

Re: Odds are very much against A Donald being worth big money

It's Donald's agents that concern me. I don't know if they are reasonable people. So far it's Donald I think that has lost out. I think the Rams wanted to pay him last year. But if his agent is foolish and self-serving, and I have some reason to think he is, then I don't want the Rams to sign him at...

Re: Joseph Noteboom

He's played both left and right OT. The Rams value OL that can play more than one spot, especially in their back-up players. This guy is quite an athlete, but he's also a long term project. We may not know what he is for a couple of seasons.

Donald may be the best ever at his position. Love his play. But it's still a team sport. I question his representation, especially in light of what the Rams have said about wanting to pay him even while retaining the ability to tag him two more years. That's three full seasons! The 3rd year out opti...

Re: Rams make big splash, Chargers take patient approach in battle for L.A.

Chargers take patient approach? LOL. Last year the Chargers averaged 25,300 per game. The next lowest attendance was Cincinnati at 53,300. Seems to me that Chargers ownership has made some very poor assessments. They got to be hoping Stan's stadium saves them ...from themselves.

Re: What Cooks trade means to me

There was a lot of doubt about Woods' contract last year. Boy, were we fans wrong. Woods is terrific. Watkins was worth the risk, and he was a positive for the team even if he wasn't as prominent as we all hoped for. He wasn't going to be worth the money KC gave him to stay with the Rams, so I get i...

Re: Rams Move to #3 in NFL Unit Grades

I've never seen this kind of thing before, but I think I have it figured out. The QB unit score is low because of Goff's back-ups. But Goff by himself would be much, much higher. The TE position may be skewed too. As a unit, based on past play, they looked like the near rookies they were. I'm expect...

Gosh, I really, really dislike validating anything Safety Blitz has to say, but... he's made a valid observation here IMO. I thought McVay looked different nearing playoff time. My guess is maybe a little self imposed overwork on his part. Could be being a first year coach and his desire for self--p...

Ebukam, Longacre, Wilson and Littleton are going to look like stars in this defense. Plus it's possible the draft adds a starting LB.

Absolutely agree. Only deal I thought was somewhat high was Sully's 2 year deal all for him being paid but what I thought was high. I read an article by an expert who suggested the Rams could keep Sullivan for $3m. Last year he made $1m. Other teams were bidding for Sullivan so I knew that was wron...

IDK, (2) #1's and pay him $20M per? I'll pass. I'd feel a little better if he was a bit more ..."stable"... a person. I don't know too how the Rams would be able to field a team after one year at the contract prices these guys want. The cap doesn't allow it. A one year blast doesn't thrill me either...

Yes, Blitz. He is a bad talent evaluator, a bad coach, Goff stinks, Woods is overpaid, Kupp won't make it in the NFL, the OL can't block, and you've got more bonehead posts than everyone else put together.

I would have thought the Rams would have had a FA signing at LB by now, but they certainly don't seem panicked. Maybe they feel they can get away with getting what they need there later now that they have such a strong front and such strong DB's?

I have to think the Rams have a plan for all the moves and how they're going to fill the voids. My first thought when I heard this trade is that the Rams want to resign Tru Johnson.
