  1. Thoughts on yesterday’s game:

    -Defense had me so frustrated on the first drive giving up a long 3rd down and letting them drive down the field, but after that they were about as dominant as you could ask for. Most of the G-Men’s skill players on O were hurt but you can only play what’s in front of you. 

    -I, like everyone else, have been very critical of Rapp all season but he had a great game today. INTs aside, he was around the ball seemingly every play.

    -Whole team, especially offense, seemed dormant that first quarter and certainly made up for it afterwards. 

    -McVay and his refusal to run is maddening.  We are so much more effective when we have a balanced play call. I get he has his new toy that he wants to play with but we could have had even more scoring drives if we balanced it out. 

    -Donte Deayon looked better than Long or Rochelle has. Was very sticky in coverage. I think he earned himself a lot more playing time going forward. I like Rochelle’s potential long term, but it’s obvious that he’s not ready yet. Gimme or not, was nice seeing him get the INT though. 

    -Floyd and Lewis are looking like quite the formidable edge tandem. Floyd, in particular, was disruptive the whole game and Lewis really seems to be hitting his stride. 

    -Liked seeing Jones get some reps on D and thought he did well enough with them. One of the ongoing mysteries continues to be Burgess’ lack of playing time. I saw him in for a few snaps early in the game but that was it. Even when we had a lot of backups in, I didn’t see him out there. 

    -Small sample size but Wolford did not look good out there. Let’s hope we never need him in any important game scenarios.

  2. Don’t understand all the hate on Stafford. The guy’s finger was clearly hurt and that will always affect how well you’re able to throw the ball. Did he miss some plays? Sure. Was the INT terrible? Of course. But all in all, he played well when it mattered and got us the W in a very difficult environment to do so. 
    Im more concerned with McVay. Felt like we were playing scared all game. Had a lot of weak play calls in big spots and that run call on 3rd and 10 early in the game was downright atrocious. 
     

    Defense played a LOT better this time. Taylor Rapp sucks though. I’ll echo what everyone else is saying—WHERE IS BURGESS? Anyone else feel like our D played better against Russ than we did against Geno?

    Hum...can't see a DL outside Donald who could be a starter for another team....

    SJD is a starter on most teams. And the rest are all backups. So no, they’re not starting quality but I think they’re talented depth. Between Bobby Brown, Greg Gaines, Jonah Williams, Eric Banks, Earnest Brown, and Michael Hoecht, there are several talented backups. We’re likely going to end up cutting two of those guys too who are all good players in their own right IMO so I’m really not concerned about our depth there. 

  4. I don’t love the move but I do like it. I think it was a little steep of a price. But I think he can be a 3rd down back for us and the obvious next man up if/when Hendo gets hurt.
    With how much we’ve invested to go all in this season, we couldn’t afford to leave our running game in the hands of Jones/Funk if Henderson were to go down

    Ughhhh not what we wanted to hear, but maybe he did improve since his rookie year. 

    Austin Reiter still not on a roster 🤔

    I thinking the same thing. We’ve put in claims for a few centers this past week and didn’t get them meanwhile Reiter is still available and better than anyone else out there. I figure he’s an upgrade over Allen (unless he drastically improved from the last time we saw him play) and at worst case scenario provides valuable depth. In a year where we’re clearly going all in, wouldn’t you want as much depth for the line to protect the guy you just invested in? Even if Allen is much improved, he is coming back from a pretty severe injury

    If these launched last year the blowback would have been nil. Instead we were dragged through the mud all season. @NVRamsFanmade a valid point about the timing though. 

     

    We wear these 3x this year and it could increase in 2022. I don't mind the bone, but when comparing it to the white "modern throwback", there's no comparsion. Stafford jersey should be here by kick off

    While I don’t disagree with everything you’re saying, I think had the new ones and the Bone been flip flopped for release times, fans would have been WAY less receptive to the Bone—which was pretty mixed in terms of reviews anyway. With the bone being an off white, it just makes it so similar to the new white ones anyway. And while these news ones are undoubtedly better (they’re just awesome overall), I think it makes it OK with it being similar since they are the better ones. Had it been vice versa, I think there’d have been a lot of outrage over the bone and it would have never stood a chance

    Thank god they killed Bone, why they ever thought that was a good idea is beyond comprehension.

     

    For starters, I actually like the Bone. A lot of others do as well. And they’re also not killing it—it’s still their default away jersey

    Guess I was wrong. If they are legit, it's a little anticlimactic but I like it. 

    Was thinking the same thing. Just so similar to the Bone that it feels like a let down after such anticipation if those really are. Just feels like a waste of a jersey since we already have an off-white

     Two key points to take away from Whit's statements:

    • This is his last year. (we could of assumed this)
    • The Uni's releasing this year will resemble the 1950's style with Yellow top and white pants. 

    The retirement should not be shocking to anyone. But the uniform comment (to me) doesn’t necessarily indicate that they’ll be all yellow. He could be referring to the yellow sleeves where the yellow color is still pronounced but obviously not whole thing. Either way, excited to see what they come out with.

    I don't know, if TE is started to be used by Stafford, i think Higbee will be our TE1. Don't expect Hopkins or Harris too much.

    I don’t think either takes over as TE1 this year. But if one of the two can fill the Gerald Everett hole of being a guy who could create some big plays every once in a while then that’s a win. And a guy like Harris absolutely has the potential to become the starter and a pretty dangerous one at that

    This dude might be what we wanted Brycen Hopkins to be. Potentially better given his build and athleticism. I definitely agree he’s one to watch. 

    Is it bad to say that I already expect him to be better than Hopkins?

    I'm in NJ too! Baltimore is driveable.

    Talking with my buddy last night, we might go to Lambeau for GB vs Rams November 28th. And I'd like to get to one in SoFi.

    The Giants game at Metlife is 2 days after my wedding....Guess we'll see  if this marriage is going to work or not really quickly. 🤷‍♂️

     

    I live in the Hudson Valley in NY. I might be going to the Giants game this year. My one buddy throws a big tail gate for every Giants home game and he’s been telling me to come for years. Might finally go this time

    I’m going to miss seeing Kupp and woods have the 10-17 duo. I thought it looked awesome and it’s also my two favorite numbers lol but I guess I prefer that’s woods switches to 2 than Ramsey. 
     

    its going to take time to adjust seeing single digits or even a backers wearing 30’s.  

    I loved it when Woods and Kupp were 17-18. Once Kupp went to 10 it all changed it anyway so I’m cool with Woods as 2. And I agree with you in saying I’d rather Woods be 2 than Ramsey

     FYI Number Changes

    Woods will be cool in 2. Don’t like D Williams as 11. I’d imagine he was vying for 1 but Desean out ranked him with seniority, which is a shame because D Jax will definitely only be with the team this year. But even if Williams lost out on 1, he should have just stuck with 31. Fuller is one of the few I’ve seen where I like it equally as much between his old and new number. 
    I know Wolford already switched from 9 to 3 for Stafford, but Akers rocking 3 would have been awesome. So much better than 23

    Neither of those guys would take the top off though. 

    I disagree. While I think you’re right about Marshall, I think that’s exactly what Brown does. He’s a true deep threat and I also just think a more well rounded receiver in general

    If it makes you guys feel better, I had the Chiefs taking Tutu at 63 in my final mock. Had him graded as a Late 3rd Rounder but the Chiefs love reaching on speed at the end of R2. 
     

    To be fair, your WR Core did need speed pretty badly. There is no one to take the top off from my knowledge. 

    I’m not so much upset with taking a WR that early, I’m more upset with which one they took and how much of a reach it seemed. Guys like Terrace Marshall and Dyami Brown were still on the board. I’d have loved to see us draft Brown. I just don’t see Atwell having a lot of success in the NFL aside from a few gimmick plays here and there. I hope I’m wrong—I really do.

  18. The more I look at our draft, the more I realize that if we could have gotten a better player at 57, it would have changed my outlook on the entire draft. If you swap out Tutu for Creed Humphrey or even Dyami Brown if it was absolutely going to be a WR either way, this looks like a great draft class. But instead they really reached on a player I have a hard time seeing make a significant impact. It’s been almost a week and I still just can’t wrap my head around picking him. I’ve been wrong before and I’d gladly be wrong here but i haven’t hated a pick this much in years

    At 4pm EST today any UFA that sign will NOT count against the compensatory pick formula.

    The Rams did not feel comfortable having a rookie Center working with Stafford (but Andy Reid does for Mahomes?), so maybe we kick the tires on Austin Reiter.

    Melvin Ingram and Justin Houston also stand out. Nickell Roby Coleman, Geno Atkins, Jurrell Casey, Kawaan Short, Eric Fisher, James Carpenter, Trent Murphy.

    Have a feeling we bring in one or two vets on one year deals. 

    Reiter would be a much welcome addition right now. I’d feel a lot more comfortable with him on our starting OL

  20. So we took two guys in Harris and Skowroneck that both fit the mold of WR/TE tweener. I’m assuming one will be listed as a TE and one as a WR. I’ve seen most people mention Harris as a TE but with his height, weight and speed, it just makes the most sense for him to be a big bodied WR. And Skowroneck seems like a much better candidate to transition to TE. 
    what do you guys think ends up happening with them? For what it’s worth, I think the Rams social media listed Harris as a TE and Sko as a WR, which is the opposite of what I’d do, personally.
