Re: Trumaine Johnson Top 10 CB Rankings

I'm looking around the league...
Wouldn't pay more than 9 a year.

Re: Changes you wouldn’t mind seeing..,

Thanks 69.. said much of what I was going to. One bonus of Tree inside is he's actually a good blitzer from there. 2 sacks already. His role in the 3-4 is, imo.. closer to his role as MLB in the 4-3. People seem to forget the OLBs in the 3-4 are basically DEs. Austin's problems are drops & muffed pu...

Re: Goff is the best quarterback drafted in the last two years.

I consider this being Goff's Rookie year,,,, With an offensive minded HC.... Goff can really learn this offense.... at the same time, he is learning how the D plays... in which the game will slow down for him.... With this teacher and his pupil, these two are gonna be around for a long time to brin...

Re: Goff is the best quarterback drafted in the last two years.

I don't know...
I'm just happy with him and the improvement he's shown. He's still incredibly young and has only been working with McVay for one offseason. Watching him grow within this offense should be a ton of fun.

Re: NFL QB Rankings by PFF grade after Week 6

PFF is one measure. There are others. None are be-all, end-all.

When you add them up... I think they give a decent picture of Goff. I'd say he's about middle of the pack in his performance, so far.

Re: McVay vs Martz: Similarities and Differences

McVay combines Martz level intelligence and understanding with real humility... that allows him to learn and adapt.

Re: Ranking all 32 NFL offensive lines by average grade through Week 5

A couple of things caught my attention. 1. "Former Rams left tackle Greg Robinson has not performed particularly well, ranking as PFF’s 68th-graded offensive tackle so far. Robinson has surrendered 21 total pressures in five games, the sixth-most at his position." Talk about addition by subtraction...

Re: Rams GM Les Snead looks to have made right moves -- at the p

I've been arguing that Rams fans should step back and evaluate Snead working with McVay as opposed to Snead working with Fisher. Fisher gets part of the credit and blame for his time with Snead... but there seems to be a *notable* improvement in approach and results with the new setup. I've also arg...

Re: Watkins

His blocking effort was poor and if he was keying on Wilson then his execution was just as bad. And he just lets Wilson tackle him. Maybe I didn't make the rule clear... it says you can't hit the QB in that situation. Also.. are you denying that he beat all his teammates downfield in an effort to h...

Re: Realization- If Cupp holds on this team is 5-1

Kupp is known for his pure hands....he could be pressing a little right now as a rookie trying a bit too hard and doing a lot of thinking vice just playing. Those things will work themselves out as he settles in with the team and playbook and lets his ability take over. I'm not worried about Kupp h...

Re: Realization- If Cupp holds on this team is 5-1

Maybe Goff should have thrown the ball a little better. Ever think about that? That would have been a fingertip catch. Hopefully Kupp will find a pair of those magic gloves that make average receivers look great. Have seen multiple WRs make tougher catches. Most importantly, Kupp knows he should ha...

Re: Watkins

We both know he wasn't gased and he could've easily blocked Wilson better then just putting his hand out waving at him and not catch a flag. Which is why I pointed out the rule that I think concerned him. He made the effort to get down there.. why would he sprint down and not block? With the stupid...

I like Barron. Don't get the hate. PFF isn't the bible.. but it backs up what I see... a very, very solid LB.

This is a contract year for him, if his effort has been questionable what do you think it is going to be like after he signs a big contract. If you're not sure just look at Quinn.

Couldn't disagree more about it being a bad move if it doesn't work. One of the reasons is they knew he was walking at the end of the season. Could have have attitude issues? Sure is possible.

I haven't given up on him, but whether he works out and stays or not Snead made the right call to go get him at the time. It’s only the right call if it works. A gamble thought worth taking at the time can still be a bad call. The most maddening thing IMO right now is that he absolutely has the tal...

Re: Adrian Peterson to the Cards

Here's a hopeful thought.
AP got more work than he's had in a long time... and now gets to fly to Europe to play at 32. It's AZs first trip there.
I think those factors bode well for Rams.

I don't believe any team will be more prepared entering each game than the Rams in all 3 phases.

They let Ryan Fitzpatrick pass for 290 yards and 3 TD's (along with his customary 2 INT's of course). He lead the Bucs to 33 points in 35 minutes and they almost came back from 31-0 down. If the TB coach would have kicked a FG on 4th and goal at the 4, instead of failing on 4th down on the last pla...

The DL was in a stunt. Come on dick you are better than this. Barron gets man handled every game because of his size. And the only reason why he is even at LB is because he can't cover anyone as a DB. He is a one dimensional pass rushing player period. You are giving Arizona way more credit then th...
