Latest post of the previous page:

Hollins will more likely be moved to ILB when he returns. Hollins played ILB and OLB in Denver. He has experience at both.

I would prefer a corner or safety but I will take it .
In theory a good pass rush will make the Rams current corners and safeties better.
This

Ask Brady vs the Giants in the SB.

The rams will not need to send no more then 5 guys. The front three and Floyd and Miller will provide plenty or pressure.
Obviously if we can get/keep everybody healthy, that's the scariest pass rush force in the NFL :twisted:

Rams pay the comp pick game, if Miller get s a big deal elsewhere (he will be 33 next year), the Rams will get a 3rd round comp for him in 2023.

Some food for thought... But its crazy to put Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey and Von Miller under the same team name. I mean, it sounds amazing. I just hope Von's body can hold up.

Now can we find a Punt and Kickoff return specialist.
I think we should make it a clean sweep and give away our two pics left in 2022... This way, we can all just plan vacations at draft time. Will be nothing to watch.

Kidding of course, but the draft will be very boring next season... which i'm ok with that if we continue to do this well.

McSnead are def breaking barriers when it comes to the draft VS gaining Vet players.
At least the main board won't be cluttered up with draft threads that are supposed to be in the DRAFT SECTION of the forum, but for some reason doesn't get enforced.... ;)

Never underestimate the AD factor. AD factor made Fowler look like a top pass rusher. Helped Floyd take his game to the next level. The AD factor will now help Von look young again. Von will see alot one on ones.

Hopefully it works out better for the Rams than it did for Teddy KGB.

Do not underestimate what Von experience and his leadership brings to the locker room. He is a class act and a leader. He isnt a cancer or a selfish guy like a D Jack.

Just heard on CBS Sports Radio.

And no 1st rounder involved??
Two (2022) seconds AND from what I've seen so far, Denver is paying $9 million of the $9.7 million he is due.

Because Denver is paying this year’s salary I am willing to bet we grab someone else. I’m guessing a MLB.

GOOD LUCK DOUBLE AND TRIPLE TEAMING AD now.

With Miller, Lewis, Hollins, and OBO in rotation it guarantees fresh legs, and keeps the probability of injury down. And if there is one for a week or longer there’s plenty of depth.

We are preparing to turn it up a notch for the back end of the season. There are some great Offenses coming up.

Lastly Miller played for Staley and already knows this D.

My initial knee jerk reaction was I hated this trade.
He is on the downside of his career.
He is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this year.
We have other needs such as a stud MLB, return guy, CB… etc.

But… the Broncos are picking up 9mil of his salary.
If he leaves during free agency, Rams should recoup the third round pick with a comp pick.
So, we basically traded our low end second round pick and this has minimal impact on our salary cap.

We still have room to make another splash deal.

so Obo and Lewis are out? for this year at least? hmmmm. Seemed like we were doing ok at OLB.
Its hard to not agree with you and does this tap us out for other needs?

so heres an interesting thought, how many teams are going to send their tight ends out against this pass rush? Maybe this is an effective way to cover the tight end or rb by scaring the $$hit out of the OC and forcing max protect

I guess the nice thing about being treaded mid season, is that it ups your chances of getting a ring.

And if you are traded 3 times during a calendar year, it ups your chances even more.

If the Broncos will the SB, Von gets a ring. If the Rams win, Von gets a ring... and so on.

Correct?

Not sure how I feel on this yet. 32 year old vet. Performance has dropped off a bit, but I am sure he's still a stud on some level?
"George Allen returns from the grave after Halloween!"

The guy's at the age at which performance can be expected to decline somewhat, this strikes me as a totally short-term move.

If the Rams don't win Super Bowl LVI, it seems as though this trade won't look nearly so good next year... :( :oops: :roll:

No worries

Playing next to AD will reverse most of the decline that Von has experienced over the years.

The AD factor is real.

Von is about to face a huge dose of 1 vs 1 and 1 vs backs and tight ends. If teams try to give Von attention, then Flo sack numbers will just increase at a higher pace.

ALL IN........Ans yes- AD factor has proven real. He should be paid a portion of these contracts they land after a nice season with AD taking half the OL himself.

Someone in here needs to make T shirts that say 'The AD Factor'.

Sell them on Amazon or something.

I would buy it, because it's REAL.

Bad idea? Kind of gay? Hmmm.

Well now this changes everything. The likes of Murray and Jackson are contained. They can't get away with doubling Donald. Coverage schemes can now change to a man/zone combo disguise that IMO you have to be Rodgers or Brady to eventually figure it out. For the rest of the leagues QB's this is going to wreak havoc with sacks and turnovers.
