  1. General Season Talk

    Honestly I'd do it in a heartbeat. Many people want to get rid of Cooks and this would present an amazing opportunity to do just that. Odell doesn't carry the same cap hits or cap penalties if we cut him that Cooks would, so at worst we trade and cut. At best we get a superstar talent at a cheaper price than it would have been to keep Cooks. Creative problem solving.
  2. General Season Talk

    I totally agree and am not worried one bit. We have a few holes (OLB, LT, ILB,C) but can be filled with guys we already have. Ramsey is already counting nearly $14 million against the cap so when he gets paid it won't be a huge hindrance. Keeping Havenstein only makes sense. Why get rid of good talent and depth? We saw this year we need that most. Adding competition will make our team that much better. Noteboom, Edwards, Allen, Evans, Havenstein is a solid group up front with starting experience. Ideally I'd like to see competition at C and LT (wouldn't mind seeing Blythe back at center), but drafting two offensive linemen and signing a vet would really help stability. Now if we resign Fowler and find an ILB, I really like our chances moving forward. I think our secondary has a chance to be really, REALLY good. Our safeties are young and showing a lot, and our corner depth is really deep. Ramsey, Hill, NRC, Darious Williams and David Long is very stout. There's a chance NRC is gone and we move Darious to the slot (though I'm not necessarily a proponent of that it could help save some $$). I think we all agree Weddle is done. Matthews wouldn't shock me if he was cut as he couldn't tackle and I'd like to see Samson in that role, but again it's not a move that HAS to happen. Be patient and let the depth build. We were 1 missed field goal away from beating the Eagles in the Wild Card round . I'm excited to see what coaching changes are made. I would like to see another offensive mind get added (and I've heard the Jay Gruden rumors which would be awesome). Another person I'm keeping an out for is if Garrett is fired from the Cowboys would be Kellen Moore. He showed me a lot this year and he helped Dak grow and that offense look way less vanilla than usual. Our offense really changed identities in the last 5 games and I'm excited to see how that grows next year! On the defensive side, a lot of who we will look to resign/sign depends on who the DC is. If it's a Wade guy, I feel comfortable with who I'd like to retain. If not, it'll be interesting to see how it shakes out. More consistency is needed. We can't give up 55 points to the Buccaneers one week and hold a good SF team to 20 the next.

    He's a beneficiary yes, but he has the talent beyond Obo. Littleton in my mind is more easily replaceable. I could be mistaken, but it's just what I feel. Ideally we'd be able to keep both, but between the two I'd edge (see what I did there) with Fowler.
  4. General Season Talk

    I completely agree. I'd rather see the money spent on Fowler, simply because edge guys are harder to find. It really comes down to who our DC is and what they prioritize.

    Let's not hobby shame here
  6. Week 14 - Rams vs. Seahawks

    Right...but if we lose our chances are slim to none....
  7. Week 14 - Rams vs. Seahawks

    Record, win percentage. Same thing to me, better record is better win %. Yea obviously we have to keep it up, but it feels nice to at least be 6th seed.
  8. Week 14 - Rams vs. Seahawks

    No, we'd have 6th seed. We would have conference record over them. It's not wins, it's record.
  9. Week 14 - Rams vs. Seahawks

    We win and the Vikings lose we're the 6 seed. Let's get it!
  10. Rams trade Talib to Miami

    Offensive issues are moot when Defense is only letting up 15 points....I understand the offensive line concerns, but if McVay can gameplan to get the ball out faster (like the Patriots do constantly) it will mitigate offensive line concerns.
  11. Rams trade Talib to Miami

    Probably a high 7th though!
  12. General Season Talk

    Talib is gone next year anyways. Doesn't really make sense.
  13. General Season Talk

    Vaitai stinks, but I like the idea of using Reynolds as a trade chip.
  14. General Season Talk

    That's fine, not disagreeing
  15. General Season Talk

    This is what I said: The question was about athleticism, to which I was shining a light on how he is athletic and gave a comparison to his athletic traits. Never once was his play on the field mentioned.
  16. General Season Talk

    Never said he was as good as Warner. Said they had comparable athleticism. Don't try to change my narrative.
  17. General Season Talk

    I never said he was good...Please follow the logic train
  18. General Season Talk

    Again, athleticism doesn't equate to performance 100%. Simply a statement of fact contrary to some Rams fans feeling Reeder can't move. Never said he was good, but with athleticism there's always a hope right haha
  19. General Season Talk

    Way better is relative. Reeder had a 7 flat which is plenty quick. 6.9 by Warner is very good for the position sure
  20. General Season Talk

    How about this, his athleticism is comparable to Fred Warner's. Granted athleticism doesn't make him as good of a linebacker, but the point here was athletic traits. There's something here. We'll see if his mind is up to the task.
  21. General Season Talk

    Peters had a pick 6 which was great. Still helping the Rams!
  22. Most underrated draft busts of all time.

    For the Rams, Lawrence Phillips is pretty big and I'm not sure how frequently he is brought up. Guys who fail off the field are less noticeable I think. Also Jason Smith in 2009. Tough time getting OT's for the Rams within the last 10 years.
  23. Jalen Ramsey to Rams!

    Well obviously we could have traded two first rounders to get (enter stud LT who no team would ever trade save for the Dolphins in tank mode)
  24. Jalen Ramsey to Rams!

    We really only spent a first round pick to get him. A first covers getting Jalen Ramsey and the 4th we spent was covered by the 5th we got back from the ravens for Peters. It's not so bad.
  25. Rams place S John Johnson on IR

    That stinks
