  1. General Season Talk

    So now that Jamon Brown is able to come back from suspension, what's the move? Blythe played great in both games and may have earned his way into cementing his status as a starter. I like Brown, but recognize that he's the weak link on the line and did earn himself a suspension. Also, any word on how serious the GZ injury is? I saw we already brought back Sam Ficken, who still scares the hell out of me. If Zeurlein is out for a prolonged period of time, I'd take a hard look at Dan Bailey, who is still available as a free agent.
  2. Kick Returner

    Didn't know where else to put this so: With Pharoh Cooper looking like he could miss a significant amount of time and Mike Thomas also (inconveniently) getting hurt, we need a interim return man. Cooper Kupp will likely handle punt return duties, but we'll need one for returning kicks. Personally, I'd like to avoid using Kupp because of how integral he is to the offense and I wouldn't want to risk the injury. Who do you think are some likely candidates? Personally, I'd like to throw John Kelly back there and see what he could do. I think he'd be good for that.
  3. MNF - Raiders vs Rams

    Yes, but that's his M.O. Every year he has one or two games where he absolutely kills it. Then he disappears for 5-6 games at a time. Very talented player--even more frustrating. Don't count on him continuing to impress.
  4. Week 1 - Rams @ Raiders - MNF

    Kelly not suiting up (or even moving up on the depth chart) leads me to believe that the coaches aren't yet satisfied with his pass blocking, because he clearly showed more in the preseason than Brown or Davis.
  5. Week 1 - Rams @ Raiders - MNF

    Thoughts on the game: For starters, too late of a start time for a fan living in NY. I'm dragging at work today. Some obvious rust, especially for Goff and the Defense. Fortunately, the D picked it up in the second half. I expect Goff to be a lot smoother next week. Gurley, however, picked up right where he left off. Cory Littleton had himself a nice game. He was seemingly all over the place and racked up a lot of tackles. I know the INT he had was about as big a gimme as you'll find, but still an impressive outing for him. Definitely inspires hope for him. I would have liked to see a more consistent pass rush from us. I felt like Carr was kept clean for the most part throughout the game. Ebukam had a few TFL's, which was great, but I'd have liked to see him get a sack. Again, I only expect the D to get better as the year goes on. It's quite clear already that Cooks is far superior to Watkins. Had a great first game with us and drew a pair of big Defensive PI calls. Felt like we were making excuses for Watkins lack of production all season long last year. He also had a day to forget with the Chiefs on Sunday, despite the whole offense going off. In short, I think we're going to like this offense even more with Cooks out there. First half had me nervous, but we came out and adjusted and performed the way a top tier team is supposed to. Great feeling to come away with the W. This is going to be an exciting year.
  6. Draft Discussion Thread

    Very happy with the Kiser pick there. I would like to think that we package one of our 100 sixth round picks to get back into the fifth if there's a player they like
  7. Draft Discussion Thread

    My issue with our last two picks is that we're reaching for guys that aren't even position of need. If you're gonna reach for players, do it at a spot that you need. And if you're gonna pick someone who's not a need, it had better be BPA. We've done neither.
  8. Draft Discussion Thread

    I liked Allen but not this early. Thought this was a considerable reach
  9. Draft Discussion Thread

    Absolutely not.
  10. Draft Discussion Thread

    This is exactly how I was. At first I had no idea who the hell he was. But after doing some research and hearing some things about him, he's one of the few guys who has potential to become a starting caliber LT. And in the meantime, he provides excellent depth as a swing tackle.
  11. Draft Discussion Thread

    I'd really like to see Tim Settle be our first pick today. I wasn't a fan of drafting him in the second or third round as many here mocked us doing (when we still had a first rounder). But him falling to the fourth would be a great value. He obviously wouldn't start this year but with Suh realistically only being with us this year, he'd be a great guy to step up the following year as our NT. After that, in the fourth round I'd like to see any of the following players in horns: Tegray Scales Josey Jewell Micah Kiser Josh Sweat Dorace Armstrong Genard Avery some guys I'd like but not in the fourth round: Obo Okoronkwo Kylie Fitts Mike McCray Dane Cruikshank

    Really think Scales would fall that far?
  13. Draft Discussion Thread

    @The LBC yes I'm in agreement with that. I wouldn't spend a pick prior to round six on him.
  14. Draft Discussion Thread

    I actually like Cruikshank a lot (as a late round flier). Lot of athleticism and a willing and capable hard hitter. I think his flaws are coachable and worst case scenario, if they're not, it'll only be a 6th round pick (if I had to predict where he landed). He's a guy I've been constantly putting in my personal mock drafts. Would like to see him in horns as safety depth. Worst case, I think he's a stud special teamer.
  15. Brandin Cooks traded to Rams

    Rams cannot afford to not extend him like what happened Sammy Watkins. Im still not happy about giving up our first rounder, but I think Cooks will fit in really well. He'll take over Watkins' role and he's actually a proven player rather than a guy living off glimpses/flashes/potential. What I'm happiest about is that this removes us from the OBJ sweepstakes. Whiles Cooks isn't necessarily as talented, he's not the headcase that Beckham is. And he'll come in at a cheaper number if (when) they look to extend him. I also don't think that this offense needs an elite prototype #1 receiver. I think Cooks will fit perfect and immediately resume the role of the deep threat. Again, if they fail to extend him though, this move is a disaster.
