  1. Jrry32 Second to Last Mock Draft

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

    @The LBC yes I'm in agreement with that. I wouldn't spend a pick prior to round six on him.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Brandin Cooks traded to Rams

    Where did this come from? Cooks is a really talented player and a guy who can obviously take the top off of a defense. How much has he played at wideout, though, compared to the slot? I don't like giving up a first rounder. We won't be picking until round 3 now.
  6. Rams 2018 offseason

    I think you're getting a bit ahead of yourself and underestimating how difficult it is to win a Superbowl. Yes, this is the most talented this team has looked in about 15 years and I have an immense amount of confidence in McVay, but let's be real here...Last season was our first winning season in forever. While we may look like the best bet to make the SB on paper (which, we certainly are up there), its still an incredibly difficult task to achieve. We're talking about a very young HC who's only going to be in his second year. As great as we were this past season during the regular season, we came out flat in the playoffs--which is really my biggest point. The playoffs are a totally different beast. Sure, maybe we just had the jitters being there for the first time in a long time, but we don't know if we've got a team that stalls out once the post season hits. Now I'm obviously certainly hoping that the latter is not the case, but what I'm saying is that we really don't know one way or the other at this point. As it stands now, we've got a great chance at becoming champions, and adding OBJ's talent would help the case, but it's not a foregone conclusion one way or the other.

    I'm holding out hope for Landry still as well (which I think there's a legitimate chance of happening), but I also really like Leighton Vander Esch at ILB. I think he'd be a great fit and he's loaded with potential. If we lose out on Landry, I'd hope we take LVE over Evans (who I also like in his own right)
  8. Rams Sign DT Ndamukong Suh

    Certainly a really exciting move. I was a big opposer of the move when it was brought up a couple weeks ago but I eventually really warmed up to it, and now I'm actually excited for it. What a dominant D Line that's going to be. The part I like most, however, is that it's only a one year deal and won't affect our ability to extend Donald long term. If it wasn't already blatantly obvious, this team is going for it all this year. I can't f-ing wait.
  9. Rams 2018 offseason

    Won't call you crazy for a second. You're absolutely right. Peters and Talib may be knuckleheads, but you can't deny that they're trying to get their team to win at all times. They're not concerned about what their personal situation is. Beckham coming in would DESTROY the whole "We not me" notion. He wants the ball his way every time. I'm convinced that his sideline tantrums are results of selfishness rather than the teams performance. That is not what we need for a young, still developing QB in Goff.
  10. Rams 2018 offseason

    Not that anyone doesn't know about OBJ's antics anyway, but me being someone who lives in NY, I see the crap he pulls week in and week out up close. He's the biggest diva in the league, a cry baby, attention seeking drama queen who thinks he's untouchable. He's a tremendous talent--no doubting that. But this guy is beyond a headache. Just watch the recent interview with John Mara. The guy already sounds fed up with dealing with him. He's a distraction on the field and off of it too. Combine all of that with the fact that there's no way we'd be able to afford him long term in addition to all of our own priority guys (assuming we get Suh, which I firmly believe we do at this point). Big pass from me for OBJ.
  11. RamPackFan - no trade version

    I like it. I'm still not crazy about picking a WR in rounds 1-3. But overall I'm a fan of the mock.
  12. New Lunatic Mock - The Les Edition

    I like the Rankin pick a lot. He's a guy I've worked into my own mock pretty often. My question, however, is why draft Settle (especially with our first pick) if we DID end up signing Suh?
  13. Rams 2018 offseason

    It'll likely come down between us or the Saints. I've been one of the few people who aren't crazy about the idea of bringing Suh aboard. But I've reall warmed up to the idea. I won't be upset if it happens and I'm not pounding my fist to make it happen. But that would be a pretty unstoppable D Line if he was. Once I found out that he was more interested in playing for a contender than cashing in, it gave me a whole different outlook. Kind of exciting now, actually.
  14. Rams 2018 offseason

    Not me. I'm not crazy about this receiver class and I don't want our hand forced in the draft.
  15. Rams 2018 offseason

    A bit unrelated given recent rumors, but what ever happened to our interest in Terelle Pryor? I read we were interested and then that was the end of it. No visits or anything. I'd be a fan of signing him, assuming he'd come at a reasonable rate (no reason he shouldn't considering his last season). I like Reynolds a lot but I'm not 100% comfortable with him being the uncontested starter going into the season. I'd at least want some competition for the spot and some respectable depth. Jordan Matthews is another guy I'm interested in.
