Re: Why this draft sets up for the Rams so well

anyone else think QB is a possibility too? I don't think Mannion a good backup- jmo- I could see QB as a pick myself if they love one who is there rd 3. not out of the realm.

Dline and Corners so good- doesn't really matter- pressure up the middle and premier cover corners- deadly combo

Re: Fa vs draft

I'm not opposed to ANY of the signings- just saying in general it usually doesn't work out getting a ton of high profile FA's as sooner or later you have to pay them and you cant sign them all - and in the meantime you are giving up draft picks. Gonna find out if it works or not- I remember Philly m...

Fa vs draft

I have always been a draft vs FA guy- I believe you build through the draft and supplement with FA to fill gaps. This year will test this theory- most of the time teams have loaded up in FA it hasn't worked. I love every person we went and got honestly- I LOVED Suh coming out and I LOVE our corners....

Re: I want Sammy Watkins back

SoCal that is why I think he wasn't healthy- watched him a TON his college and pro career- and he isn't one to dog it. I have to think he wasn't right. Maybe the plan was to use him in spurts- and blocking and as a decoy- as crazy as that sounds. I know this- he is MUCH better than what we saw. I ca...

yes. MANY reasons why and MANY will disagree because of name and draft spot- but it was right more IMO. I never thought I would say that.

Re: Package all those 6ths and more for Vita and Griffin

I think its funny when people suggest such crazy deal thoughts. NO CHANCE someone trades back a premium pick (top 15) for a 23 and some 6th rounders. Not a chance in the world. Or 6th for 3rds for that matter- no way. 6th rounders are reaches- 1-3 rounders are starters usually. No disrespect intende...

Tavon

I have always applauded those who were man enough to admit there mistakes. I LOVED the Tavon pick- ( some forget we were going to the spread O- which is why Bailey as well- but after 4 games it was scrapped) so at the time I LOVED the pick. Then we went to run first etc and he struggles outside of s...

Fact= Sammy can get more elsewhere- Question- how much more will be get to go elsewhere? because I think he REALLY wants to stay- I think we REALLY want to keep him so I think if we are in the ballpark he stays. He knows what this O can do- he was in bad situation- bad weather- so I don't think he w...

Re: I want Sammy Watkins back

Utah- good argument- but hard to belittle what Woods and Kupp did= and of course Gurley- I agree they had a lot to do with that- and I also agree OLine upgrades were HUGE- no question, but I would say Gurley and WHit were 2 biggest. Good argument though.

Re: I want Sammy Watkins back

Sammy didn't have an off year because teams game planned him- and it opened up others. I firmly believe he wasn't 100% because if he was, he would have done more regardless of game plan because Woods was balling and teams adjusted to him and Sammy wasn't doubled all year. He is a gamer- no question-...

Re: Is it finally time for the Rams to walk away from Trumaine Johnson?

Tru is a good CB, not elite, if he wants elite money to stay- you have to move on. He isn't a top 5 or even 10 corner imo. If he wants top 2 cb money- I say move on. We have to pay Donald, Gurley and Goff sooner than later- he isn't worth top CB money. JMO

Atl was simply was more mentally ready in all phases for that game. We were outcoached, out hustled, and I chalk that up to experience- something I think is a real factor. I would bet next year, this team wont play like that in a playoff game. Trick plays are great, but far from what you bank on. I ...

I think people are forgetting the Hawks have R Wilson- they wont be out of it- they are retooling this offseason and IMO are more of a threat than SF next year.

Some QBs can overcome almost anything because they are that great- (Brady, Rodgers) but most are dependent on protection and weapons- simply look at what we were fielding in those years on the oline and wrs/tes. pretty brutal. Don't know any QB who will win with that. Foles and Keenum need pretty i...
