Re: DO WE HAVE A VON MILLER AT LINEBACKER ON OUR TEAM ALREADY? 6'3" 245 LBS. 4.45 40 YARD AND 24 BENCH REPS!!!

Rams addressed the EDGE in the draft an[*]d now that they have, think Wade has sufficient talent to work with. Unsure I am ready to declare Ebukam a talent equal to Von Miller, but Wade was involved in his selection and his development from day one, and Wade knows how to find the talent he needs in ...

Re: A Great Read On Donald's Impact

The article was posted a few days ago. I do like the response. 1) There is no path shorter to the qb, than from the interior pass rushers position. 3.) The running attack in this passing era of the NFL now includes the short passing attack with teams now getting the ball out much quicker than any o...

Re: Two Weeks Into OTAs, Lawler Taking Reps with First-Team Defense

Lawler could provide a key depth role in 2018. Remember the importance of Westbrooks to Jeff Fisher/GW defense? A talent who could give them quality snaps from both the DE and DT position on game day. In Wade's design, it is imperative the Rams find a depth talent who can give them quality snaps at ...

Re: Jamon Brown Enjoying Continuity on Offensive Line

Re: SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS ALWAYS STOP THE RUN...RAMS WERE AMONG THE WORST AT IT LAST YEAR!

Barron would be an awesome SS. He makes a great Spy when we go up against QBs with wheels like Wilson. He does not match up well against big ugly Olinemen looking to take out the 2nd level. Love his speed and closing ability. Basically the Rams are playing a three safety defense with Barron in the ...

Re: SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS ALWAYS STOP THE RUN...RAMS WERE AMONG THE WORST AT IT LAST YEAR!

Just wonder what Barron has to do to get some love with the Rams fan base? Seems he has been a target since his arrival via trade. It seems to me Barron is a common target as well. Some people seem to think he's easily replaceable. His name doesn't get called much and he's not a highlight star. In ...

1.) I agree with the OP, Teams who can run the ball offensively and shut down the opponents running attack in November/December are the teams who are normally in the playoff hunt and have a shot to go deep into playoffs. Where I disagree with the OP is blaming Mark Barron for the Rams run defense wo...

I disagree with his viewpoint on so many levels and while I did not click to read full story if he indeed said it, I have lost even more respect for him.

Re: Wildflecken's Positional Analysis: The Defensive Front Seven

I think the hill I'm gonna die on this offseason is that the Rams will be just fine in the edge department. I believe Ebukam is going to have more of a positive impact than many expect. Longacre is already a decent, journeyman level pass rusher. It's behind them that the big questions live... but I...

Love it. Cooks will be very solid for us. I’m only hoping we add a big red zone target in the near future. Maybe a big TE. Tyler Eifert???
Think Cody McElroy has a legit shot to develop into just that

Re: Rookie DE Justin Lawler Believes He Is a Great Fit For Rams

Lawler looks more like a camp body to me. Slow off the edge, 240 pounds. Doubt he makes the final 53. I agree but anything is possible. Often there are considerable differences that exist between game speed and straight line 40 speed. This very issue applied to TA when utilized as receiver on route...
