  1. Todd Gurley's future with the Rams

    Financial details aside, I think it just makes sense to keep him. He’s going to be more valuable to us than any kind of return we might get. He’s talented enough to be able to bounce back big time. Yes, I understand the odds of that are decreasing the further along we go, but if he were to go off next year (which there IS still a CHANCE of) for another team, we’re not going to care about the late round draft pick that we’d get for him—because that’s all we’d be getting in return for him at this point in time—if we’d even be able to get that much
  2. Jrry32 First Mock Off-Season (12/21/19)

    Big fan of this offseason. I love the Harris and Uche picks, though I actually feel like we'd need to take Harris with our second rounder. The only pick i'm really not crazy about is our first one. I don't think Woodward is a great value in the second. I also think that we won't be prioritizing ILB as much going into the offseason, even if Littleton walks.
  3. Week 16 - Rams @ 49ers

    We need to win out and have Minnesota lose out for us to make it, but if that were to happen, we DO make the playoffs
  4. General Season Talk

    With Troy Hill out this week, I see that Darious Williams is getting the start for the week. Anyone else a little bummed or even annoyed that David Long isn’t getting the start? It’s been disappointing all season long to see his lack of playing time. With our playoff opportunity basically being shut, I’d really like to see Long get the start here. I feel like he’s played well (at least we’ll enough) in his limited playing time and it’s not exactly like the Niners are loaded at WR where you’d be worried about him getting torched. Plus the fact that the guy is a third round pick with a lot of promise. What’s there to lose?
  5. STAN KROENKE

    As a life long Rams fan who’s always lived in New York, the move from St Louis to LA really didn’t affect me. If anything, going to LA gave them more attention so I could finally start seeing more about them. STL proved year after year that it did not prioritize football over baseball or even hockey for that matter. Now with that said, LA fans don’t exactly seem to be showing up much more either, but it’s at least still the bigger market. Kroeneke stays quiet, keeps out of the football operation and is always willing to shell out the money. I get it—if the Rams were in NY where I lived and then moved away, I’d be crushed too. But I really have no problem with the guy.
  6. O Line

    I agree with the notion that Noteboom is better suited at tackle than guard. But is that hunch enough to go into next season with him entrenched as the starter? I think we’d all be happy to see him turn out to be a viable starting LT but it’s a big gamble to assume he’ll be that guy. In the other hand, you’d hate to use a high draft pick on another LT for competition and then see Noteboom turn out good. With us likely having a bunch of needs in the off-season with so many expected departures/cap-casualties, this high picks needs to be properly utilized. Idk I think the coaching staff is really going to need to decide what they think of him and make some big decisions based off of that. Different topic, but what’s everyone’s thoughts on Austin Corbett? There hasn’t been much talk about him, though that’s usually a good sign for OL. He’s obviously a talented player with him being an early second round pick. It would be huge if he turns out to be at least a solid starter.
  7. O Line

    Likely so, and I understand that not each question is necessarily going to have an answer—especially considering how small of a sample size we’ve got with most of these guys. But I was just curious to see what everyone thought. I hadn’t seen too many mentions of people’s thoughts on the future of the o line
  8. O Line

    Yes that all holds true for the year, but this is more in reference to the guys who have been starting the last few games. So while yes, the line has surrendered that many sacks, the line has improved play in the last 4 games
  9. O Line

    With the much improved play of the offense as a whole—and more specifically the offensive line over the span of the last four weeks (minus the disaster against Baltimore), I think it brings up some real questions about the O line. -are they actually just playing that much better or has McVay made some adjustments to mask the lesser talent of the backups? -who remains the weak link on the line? -who, if anyone, has earned keeping the starting spot once the original starters return healthy? -does their recent play remove the potential offseason need for OL help? -does the current roster have our LT of the future for life after Whitworth? -would you consider dealing away a guy like Havenstein and sticking with Evans? -is Blythe a better center than guard? Is he a better center than Allen? Curious to hear everyone’s thoughts
  10. Rams @ Cowboys Thread

    Definitely not viewing this game as a gimme. I expect us to win, yes. But I see a lot of people looking at this game as a lock. I just hope the team doesn’t look at it the same way. We’ve played great the last two weeks, but we’ve certainly put up a few duds of our own this season. Being in Dallas only makes it tougher. One week at a time, let’s go!
  11. General Season Talk

    I’m not ready to call it a wasted pick lol and the optimist in me keeps thinking that he’s probably not ready in pass protection as the reason for his lack of playing time. But it’s not exactly like he was breaking off big runs in preseason either. Yes he was running behind a bad O-Line but he did not look good back there. Again just don’t have the highest of hopes for him
  12. General Season Talk

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on Darrell Henderson this far? IMO it’s pretty telling what the coaching staff thinks of him based off of his lack of touches. Yes we have Gurley and Brown, but we traded up in the third round to get this guy and RB is a position that typically has an easier transition to the NFL. Idk maybe just a gut feeling but at this point I don’t have very high hopes for him.
  13. 2019 NFL Draft talk

    I was fine with trading out of the first but I felt like we missed out on some potential impact players at key positions of need. It just feels like we didn’t get a whole lot in return for moving down basically an entire round from our original first pick. As far as the players themselves: Taylor Rapp: Adderly was my favorite safety in this class, but how could you not like Rapp as a player? His 40 time doesn’t concern me. Dude is a great football player and should make an immediate impact in the secondary and be Weddle’s successor. Darrell Henderson: I really didn’t like this pick and I hated the trade up for it even more. But this dude is electric in and open field and a home run threat anytime he has he ball. David Long: I LOVE this pick. He was a guy I really wanted us to select and I’m so glad they did. I think he fits our defense perfectly. He’ll provide great depth and should likely take over for Talib after this next season. Bobby Evans: I admittedly don’t know much about him, but I like his length. He’ll be good depth but I don’t look at him as a future starter. Would have preferred and interior lineman here.

    Totally agree. I thought the same exact thing.
  15. Consensus Mock Draft - Post Combine - Pick 31 - LA Rams

    Bradbury is far and away my first choice here. Lindstrom or McCoy would be a decent consolation and Rock Ya-Sin would be my last resort, though I'd prefer a trade down at that point. Bradbury is a great fit and value, not to mention a need. I understand that we're supposedly set with Brian Allen at Center, but I wouldn't be all that confident in him being our starter (especially with no competition) and we could certainly use some improvement over him.
