  1. This all sounds surprisingly optimist. For what it's worth, I do get the sense that he genuinely wants to remain a Ram. I guess it's a matter of at what cost. I think he'd give us a little bit of a discount simply for the sake of continuity and the opportunity to be a part of something special. But if another team comes and blows his pants off money-wise, then it'd be hard to see him stay. We'll see soon enough
  2. Would be very happy if it all played out this way
  3. While I think he'd be a great fit behind Gurley, if (and when) the Browns take Gurley, I bet they'd be more inclined to let Crowell go than Johnson
  4. I thought the same thing. Cant complain, though, with all of the other moves we've made
  5. Yeah I mean I think it's purely a depth signing. Obviously durability concerns, but he's not going to be the starter, so there's not much to not like--unless this affects us bringing back NRC, but I don't think that's the case.
  6. Yes, I agree. That's why I've got a lot more optimism about it. Seems like we're doing it the right way.
  7. Isn't it crazy to think that this team really is only a FEW pieces away from being straight up dominant? Just like you said: a space eating NT, a run stopping ILB, and an edge rusher and then we're there. And we're saying this before free agency and the draft even takes place. Feels good. REALLY good.
  8. Snead wheelin' and deelin' here. Never been a fan of Talib the person, but there's no denying the guy's talent. We can officially scratch CB off of our list of draft needs. And I have to disagree with the few of you saying that you think NRC is as good as gone. I don't think us acquiring two top end boundary corners should affect us bringing back our slot corner. Robey Coleman was great in that spot last year and he's still plenty young. I think there's genuine interest in the Rams bringing him back. Tru, on the other hand, is 100% gone--if he wasn't already. Really can't complain about t
  9. Big fan of Weston Richburg. I was a big fan of his coming out of college. He's a premier Center who's still plenty young. It seems that there's a good chance he doesn't stay with the Giants but I'm not sure how likely it is that we'd go after him. Would love to see it happen. Sullivan was great for us the past year but he's obviously getting up there in age and also susceptible to injuries.
  10. Unfortunately, I still think Tru is as good as gone. I think Watkins is 50/50. As much as I'd like to have him back, it's not worth getting into a bidding war over him IMO. Theres no reason this team shouldn't re sign NRC. Would be a huge disappointment if they let him slip away. Talented slot corner who is still plenty young and comes at a great value.
  11. Before getting into my opinion on this, just have to say that I was SHOCKED at this news. I woke up from a nap to a message from a buddy of mine who's a Giants fan (I live in NY). I couldn't believe or understand it since they just have him an extension during the season. Onto my thoughts on it all: I like it. Tree is a fiery leader, a respected locker room presence and a playmaker. But he's also been a liability at times and someone who's made us all crazy. Not to mention that he was not a fit for this defense. With Barron and Tree both being undersized LB's, it was getting more a
  12. Something we've seen coming all season long. I'd be shocked if we found a trade partner for him. And even if we did, I couldn't see getting any higher than and sixth rounder. Im confident that he doesn't light it up regardless of where he goes. He's good for a big play or two each season but that's about it. If anything, he returns to a dominant return man.
  13. Trade - Dallas trades pick #19 to LA Rams for pick #23, 4th round pick, 2018 second-round pick Maybe if that was the trade, I'd re-consider. But I don't want to part ways with next years second rounder. That'd be two years in a row for us without a second round pick.
  14. I'd be really happy with Roquan Smith to the Rams, but I'd be very upset at that trade. I'd much rather sit at 23 and take what falls to us. Several different positions we could look at in round one and I'd rather just stay put and take the best talent available.
  15. I like Kromer being in charge of the run game, but I don't know how I feel about Shane Waldron being the passing game coordinator. Like @Fragafootball said, I think Jedd Fisch has a bit to do with it as well. Or at least I'm hoping that's the case. I think he should do well with Goff. I trust McVay either way.
  16. If you ask me, all of those FA's are pure 4-3 DE's. If anything, they'd be an edge rusher for us--they most certainly wouldn't play on the line in a three man front. Regardless, I think it's all a moot point because I'd put it at about a 3% chance that we'd go after them (if they even hit the open market) and that's me being generous. Landry or Key would certainly be enticing options if they were to fall to us in the draft. I expect them to be selected higher, but you really never know what could happen in the draft. Going off of another post of yours in this thread, I agree
  17. Yes I agree. Obviously, we're not worried about the play calling, but I think LaFleur had a big part in Goff's development. I really hope that this doesn't stunt his growth or even worse, lead to a regression. I didn't even know that teams could hire a coordinator from another team for the same position. I thought it had to be a promotion if hiring from another team.
  18. I'm biased being a Rams fan, but I don't think anyone's career comes close to Warner's in terms of a weird career. Guy goes undrafted, to playing for a team called the Barnstormers, to stocking groceries, to a backup QB that ends up taking over the team's starting QB and taking the league by storm (winning league MVP and the super bowl). Takes his team to another Super Bowl two years later. One year after that, he loses the team's favor to Marc Bulger due to poor play and injuries. He goes to the Giants to eventually give the job to Eli. Goes to the Cardinals to "groom" Leinart and ends u
  19. For the Rams: Tavon Austin is almost assuredly gone. Mark Barron would probably be next in line. I know most posters on the forum want him to be cut, but I get the feeling that the coaching staff wants to keep him. I'd say 40% chance he's gone. There's even a chance that Robert Quinn gets cut as well. I think its a very slim chance though as he played really well down the stretch.
  20. Where did the two extra 6th rounders come from? Also, didn't we trade our 7th for Carrier? Asking out of curiosity
  21. Again, I tend to agree with much of what you're saying here and while it would definitely benefit us more to have a true NT, I just think it could be done if need be or if we were pressed for options.
  22. Wasn't sure where to put this (and I didn't think it was worthwhile to have its own thread) but, Dominique Easley... I know I've been writing him off as far as us retaining him, and I'd assume most others here have as well (understandably so). If we were to keep him, we would ideally put him at LDE and have Brockers back at NT. I know Brockers looks a better fit at End in this defense rather than Tackle, but Easley looked pretty good with us the season he actually played and this would eliminate our need for a NT this offseason. Is Easley just not a fit in this defense? Are we that concer
  23. We are in agreement on not being sold on Watkins--I don't think it's unfair to suggest that's the majority of everyone's opinion on here. But I would like to see him back at least for one more year to see what kind of improvement he could make. That being said, I don't want him bad enough if it means not bringing one of our other key players back. Either way, yes we either need him back or a suitable replacement. Who that could be seems to be where our opinions differ.
  24. Also, IIRC, the comment Snead made about Tru was prior to the season starting. I think we all saw that he was a great fit in Wade Phillips' defense. While he didn't put up the INT's he has in the past, IMO he was a better fit in this defense than in years prior. Unless he's asking for outrageous money, he should be one of the main three priorities heading into this offseason (the other two being re-signing Joyner and extending Donald). He knows this defense. He's familiar with the team. He's also a great locker room presence--he was a team captain this past season. Corner is a big need of ours
  25. McVay going to get Carrier was to get a TE with some proven blocking skills--just about the opposite of what Graham brings to the table. I strongly disagree with the idea of signing Graham, not to mention I think it's completely unrealistic. Our top two TE's have each been drafted in the past two years. I want to see what they’re capable of with a full year or two under their belts--and I'm sure the coaching staff/FO does too. Again, Graham would command way too much money that we need to use on our own priority FA's. Not to mention, I really don't think he adds THAT much more to our offense.
