Re: Would you trade Goff to keep Cap Flexibility

The hardest position to fill in professional sports is a franchise QB. If you have one you NEVER give him up. Martz\the Rams made that mistake with the great KW. We wouldn't be stupid enough to do it again would we? I watched one great Ram team after another go down to defeat in the 70's and 80's b...

Re: We should have played to win in that last game against the Niners

Again... then explain to me why a bye is given to teams with the better records? To give them a disadvantage? Again.. I provided some data to back this up ... but we're going with anecdotal? The Rams are very aggressive in using data to plan their rest for their veterans. The team had an *astounding...

Re: Wildflecken's Mock Draft 1.0

Drafting an RB with any of the Rams' first four picks would be.... Well... Just poor management. Gurley's under contract for two more years, for sure. It's... ridiculous.. .to worry about his future contract *this year*. The team needs some edge rushers and OL depth. These are *real* concerns, not m...

Re: Would you trade Goff to keep Cap Flexibility

You cite Foles and Keenum. Keenum did so well that his team moved on from him to pay another QB a huuuuuge amount of money. Foles did fantastic... and had a fantastic season once in the past. What's the deal with him? I have no idea. I would not, however, compare him to Keenum. He's got more arm and...

Re: Cooks trade could unravel grand plan

As I said, it may be one move too many. It’s a lot of risk long term on maybe. BTW, I said a 3rd this year or a 2nd round next year for Cooks. That may have required additional lower round picks. Cooks is solid but not locked in. Every other move was a risk/reward bargain. If they don’t sign Cooks ...

Re: Wildflecken's Mock Draft 1.0

I love Penny. No way in hell do I trade up to draft him if I'm the Rams. I guess there's a small chance I'd take him at three, if he was still there.. but it's a small chance. I'd rather take a flyer on an RB in the 6th. We're looking for backups, not a starter.

Re: Would you trade Goff to keep Cap Flexibility

How many years between Warner and last year, and let's be honest Warner just happen to land on our lap, did we watch poor QB play? 16-17 years? We actually started this thread? I get the economics point... but... no. You don't even think about it. If Goff performs at the level he did last year.... ...

Re: Cooks trade could unravel grand plan

The Brandon Cooks trade may be the one move too many that unravels a brilliant period of the Les Snead era. A fair price for Cooks was a 3rd round this year or a 2nd rounder in 2019 regardless of the Watkins failed experiment. As everyone knows (including Cooks) the Rams are screwed if they can’t s...

Re: We should have played to win in that last game against the Niners

Dick the Rams have a very young and inexperienced team so much as a whole our players only had a 11% playoff experience so 89% were new to the playoffs. If you really think that rest was more important then keeping our momentum going I don't know what else to tell you. This game was very important ...

As someone pointed out to me... that’s unlikely. You *might* get there with this years 3 and 2 4s?

Re: A Draft Strategy That Could Surprise Many

Thinking outside the box. How about if the Rams trade pick 87 for a 2nd rounder in 2019, if they can find a team willing to do so. Draft an OLB pass rusher and 3rd OT with the first 2 4th rounders. Use the remaining 5 draft picks for depth needs this year. Maybe you hit on some, maybe you dont. Wou...

Re: #87 pick is easy

Nope. They won’t draft a WR, RB, Corner, TE or interior DL with that pick.
It’ll be an OLB, Offensive Lineman, ILB or.. mayyyybe... safety.

Sorry... by this logic, every team that gets a bye week is at a disadvantage. Rest is important and considered an advantage. Thinking otherwise is just... silly.
