Re: Rams stadium costs top $4 billion

Why should any of us care about the cost? This will be the finest stadium in the world and it is privately funded. Some people think a taxpayer funded multi billion dollar bullet train from SF to LA is a good idea... of course, a project like that being taxpayer financed the cost overruns and delays...

Re: Rams stadium costs top $4 billion

You know of course this is an entire complex being built, right? It isn’t just a stadium. It is retail space, commercial offices and residential space. Along with the stadium.

Re: Rams work on changing uniforms, but because of NFL rules don't expect to see anything soon

Can’t wait. I changed the colors on our forum to match the current team colors and I don’t like it!
Hopefully we can get back to the classic look or something close soon.

Re: UDFA WR STEVEN MITCHELL WOW!!

A very solid receiver who couldn’ stay healthy. He is still young, so maybe his legs heal up and he gets an opportunity.
It would be a nice feel good story.

Re: Which picks contribute year 1?

I would not be surprised if UDFA Tegray Scales made the final cut. He is a little undersized, but he can play. I could see him on ST or as a backup.

Forum slowdown

Guys,
Sorry for the slow site today. Just at the height of the Rams pick, we had over 200 users online AND a major SPAMBOT trying to hit us with a gazillion registration attempts.

Re: I just hope Rosen doesn't go to Cards

I have been watching Rosen since he was in high school. 1.) He is very accurate and can make most of the throws. 2.) He doesn’t have a rocket arm so and he does struggle with the deep ball. 3.) He is NOT fluid in the pocket. 4.) He does force the ball at times. 5.) Seems to lack toughness. I think h...

Re: Aaron Donald not expected to show when Rams begin voluntary offseason workouts Monday

What has always bothered me a little is when players the are CURRENTLY under contract for a set term, decide that they have the right to holdout or otherwise withdraw their services and demand more money once they have become very successful. I realize this is how it’s done in all sports and contrac...

Re: Improved D Could Make McVay Call More Runs?

He creates a different game plan each week based on the opponents strengths and weaknesses. Then as all NFL coaches do, adjust the plan based on what he sees as the game progresses live. Retrospect when you lose makes you question your plan. I think this year he will need to change up things a bit m...

Isn’t Pettis the son of the Angles former outfielder Gary Pettis? If so, very good pedigree.

Re: The Linebacker Problem

I think Hemmingway and Reynolds will certainly be given the opportunity to fulfill those roles (as red zone targets). I also think we will see more pass plays out of the jumbo packages; three tight ends lined up and allot of motion. We have three guys that can run Jet sweeps, Tavon, Cooper and Cooks...

Re: Why the push now a super bowl ring?

Proven players who are young and don’t have serious injury history are always better than draft picks. Picks take time to develop and you never are quite sure if they will pan out. How many times have we seen the latest “sure thing” first round pick turn out to be a dud? Countless times.... I like t...

Re: Pick # 87 RB???

It all starts up front, if the OL is solid, there are several backs we could pick up who could crack 4-5 YPC.
I think drafting for the future of the O-line is far more important.

Re: The Linebacker Problem

I have a gut feeling McVay thinks Ebukam, Barron Wilson, and Littleton will be able to take on bigger roles and may even surprise all of us. I think they will draft a LB or two, but I also think the draft will focus on building depth along the offensive line. Overall, I am not too concerned with the...

The Rams have 18 picks over the next two years and the have the most cap room of any team in the NFL.

Re: Rams intend to extend Cooks before '18 season starts

“This time, they pulled off a stunning trade for Brandin Cooks, a dynamic 24-year-old wide receiver coming off three straight seasons of more than 1,000 yards receiving and at least seven touchdowns. To put those numbers in perspective, only one other player has duplicated that production over the s...

Re: Robert Quinn upset with the Rams

The last few years, he only had one move. Fast, wide sweep to the QB, which led to a gapping hole on the left side. Opposing offensives figured this out and he was easily baited.
His best years are behind him and I would bet he doesn’t play all 16 games this year.
