  1. I've seen you say this a couple times now (sorry if it wasn't you all those times, but I've seen this point made, regardless). I don't agree with it. As a head coach, I don't see how you take anything away from your nearest matchup to focus on a game afterwards just because it's a short week in between--especially for a team of the 49ers caliber this year. I think that Washington just flat out beat us. We'd all like a simple excuse as to why, but they beat us with the run and didn't turn the ball over twice like we did. Those things add up. It's still early in the year and we shouldn't let it
  2. While for the most part I like what I'm seeing from us, I'm still not ready to crown us king. My biggest reason is that I think it's way too early to count Seattle out. It seems like they always start slow and figure it out halfway through the season and finish strong. I think it would be foolish to just assume we have the upper hand on them. We should have some real clarity by week six or so, though.
  3. Very disappointed in the final outcome of the game. This was a winnable game and it would have put us on the track to legitimacy. These are the kinds of games we need to win before we get taken seriously. Had a few things gone differently, we may have come away with a win: Woods avoiding two killer penalties in the same driver, Gurley not losing that fumble, etc. The Goff INT was also bad but I don't think that was the reason we lost as much as it was the nail in the coffin. This game showed that we are still a young team with a coach that's still learning the nuances of being a head coa
  4. I'm as excited about our week 1 performance as ANYONE, but we need to keep in mind that it was just that... one week. It's a brand new head coach, who while he may seem like the truth, has a long way to go to really prove himself--as does this team as a whole. I have gotten my hopes up so so so many times over this past decade, just to be disappointed time and time again. I get it's a new coaching staff and a new team, but I need to see more than a blowout against a lackluster Indianapolis team to believe that we're the real deal. This week against Washington is going to be our next test and n
  5. Tavon should be the first to go to clear space for retaining ANY of those players. Mark Barron would be next in that category but I would be more tentative to do that with him.
  6. IMO, the order the players should be prioritized to be re-signed is: Aaron Donald (should be done this season) Trumaine Johnson Sammy Watkins Lamarcus Joyner Alec Ogeltree i like Tree but I think he's the most expendable of that group. Also I feel like he's a prime candidate to get paid more than what he's worth. If there's anyone we could replace through the draft, it's likely him. While it's obvious Donald needs to be resigned, he needed to be put there anyway. I think Tru is too valuable to this team, especially considering how thin we are at CB. I think
  7. It's been a very exciting week 1. But I, too, would like to see how we fair off against a better opponent. Or rather, I'd like to see how consistent we stay. We played great. That much we controlled. As far as the other teams, Arizona just caught a bad break with Johnson's injury. Yes, Seattle looked bad on offense but it was against a good Green Bay team in Lambeau. That can't be understated. Additionally, I feel like the last few years, the Shehawks have started off slow just to really turn on the burners mid way through the season and finish off strong. Way too early to count them out. It w
  8. I liked a lot of what I saw today. The team as a whole, especially the defense, did a lot of things well. Goff looked effective and efficient. There were a few plays that should have been completions if not for drops as well. Pass protection looked great. The ball was distributed well. I know people are stressing their concern over the run game. The run blocking was obviously brought up and that is certainly an issue. But I think a big thing to consider here is the fact that we were up by a considerable margin pretty early in the game. As an offense, you're obviously going to try to run the ba
  9. Who is your favorite Rams player? Past or Present?: Past: Kurt Warner/Chris Long Present: Robert Quinn/Aaron DonaldWhat do you do?: I'm a Traffic Manager (trucking and logistics) for a lumber distribution companyWhat other teams are you a fan of?: Baseball: New York Yankees Hockey: San Jose SharksDo you play sports? If you've hung up the cleats, inform us of your glory days when you used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter-mile.: I used to play baseball and was a good ball player. Now that I'm an adult I just stick with softball, as men's baseball leagues are few and far betwe
  10. I can't even believe that there's this much talk of trades for him. If you ask me, it shouldn't even be considered.
  11. I'd still rather him than Andrew Donnal, who was taken either just before Clemmings or very soon after in the same draft. I hated the Donnal pick when it happened and still think he offers nothing as a lineman.
  12. Much like what the coaches were looking for, I wanted to see some consistency out of Goff. I was ready to crown him king after last week and I'm not going to label him bust after this week. But the lack of back to back inspiring games is cause for concern. The fumble didn't bother me as much, though I know he'll eat the blame for it. The interception was worrisome. It was a bad throw and by a wide margin. Sure it may have slipped out of his hand coming out, but that shouldn't be happening as a professional QB. Again, I'm not in panic mode but I'm not at the point where I can say: yes, I'm comf
  13. Quick question: I've set up my settings to where I can see everyone's sig but for some reason I can only see them when I'm on a desktop as opposed to a phone/mobile device. Is that how it's supposed to be or is there something I'm missing?
  14. Goff certainly looked quite impressive throughout his first two games--more importantly, the second game where he saw a much extended snap count. I wasn't ready to call Goff a bust after his first season. I'm not ready to crown him king either yet. His game performance so far definitely inspires confidence, but I'd like to see him do it consistently in the next few weeks, as well as first few regular season games before I can exhale and feel comfortable. But, man, it sure did feel good witnessing him play the way he did.
  15. Yeah I've never understood the fact that he's a glorified returner who doesn't do kick returns. I couldn't ever tell if that was a Fisher thing or not. But yes I agree, if he's not a starting WR, then he should DEFINITELY be returning both punts and kicks, at the very least.
  16. I know it was brought up in that thread as well, but I know they're advocating more threads discussing more specific topics, so I figured this would be a good discussion. Anyways, I seem to share that sentiment regarding Austin. The guy is obviously gifted (I think that's the best word to describe him), but I agree that Kupp has already proven to be a more reliable receiver and right now that is what we need, with us having a developing QB. Right now, I think the team would prefer to ship him. And while I'm sure teams would be interested in having him on their teams, I'm also
  17. With recent occurrences, such as the acquisition of Sammy Watkins and the quick emergence of Cooper Kupp, let's address the elephant in the room: Tavon Austin. We keep hearing reports that he still has a place on this team and more importantly, a role on the offense, but is this just saving face? We've seen time after time before (with any franchise) a front office/HC back a player up only to deal them shortly after. So my question is this: do you buy this team having a defined (and significant) role on our offense? With Watkins instantly becoming the big playmaker of the team and Kupp s
  18. Definitely want to see more snaps from the starting offense--more specifically, Goff. Hoping there's a lot better ball protection this game as well. Would like to see how Blythe does as well. I think there's a chance he may overtake Brown as the starting RG, considering Brown has not impressed.
  19. I think the Yankees take the game on Sunday with Gray, who's been solid, pitching. Hard to imagine the Yankees getting the best of Sale, especially with Sabathia on mound. The toss up is tonight's game. Me being biased, I'm gonna go with the Yanks. Seems that their bats have finally woken up and come alive these past few games. Unfortunately, I still think the Sox take the division this year when it's all said and done.
  20. This is my point exactly regardless of my opinion of Gaines (which is very similar to yours of him). We don't have the depth to where we could afford losing Tru right, whether he's a great fit in Wade's scheme or not. He's still our most talented DB at the moment.
  21. Where was all of this interest when we were actually shopping him prior to the draft? At this point, I'd advise against trading him. With EJ gone, we'd be a pretty thin CB core pretty quick without Tru. At this point in time, he's too valuable to the team unless someone really blew us away with an offer (1st round or higher). IMO, a 2nd rounder isn't worth it right now
  22. Honestly would not surprise me. I live in NY and the winters get pretty cold, and I'm not even as north as Buffalo so I could only imagine how bad a full winter is there. For what it's worth, from the interviews I've seen/read, the weather alone seems like something Watkins is already excited about, mentioning it a couple different times.
  23. First off, just wanted to say I LOVE the new forum (and I'm usually someone resistant to change). Secondly, and relevant to the topic, I loved this trade as soon as I saw it. Gaines had clearly fallen out of favor here, not to mention his injury concerns and the fact that we're still holding onto the hope that he'd play like he did in his rookie year, which was seemingly less and less likely. We've been trying to find a true #1 WR for what seems like forever now and Watkins is a bonafide #1 when healthy, which brings me to my main and only two concerns: 1) him staying healthy.
