  1. Captain Marvel (March 2019)

    I mean I was already in on this movie, Captain marvel is an awesome character. But as far as the trailer goes, didnt really do much for me. Didnt hook me with anything, especially if I was a casual fan. The pager nod is obviously intriguing, and seeing her Mohawk is awesome, but thats about it
  2. General Season Talk

    As long as they keep playing like this together, I expect the swagger to be lethal to opposing QBs and not a hindrance with the team. But if things go south for a few games I would keep my ears pealed for what quotes start to come out.
  3. The Predator

    Ive seen everyone has been disappointed (at the least) at this point. But I heard the first 10+ min are awesome (and then it nose dives) is that true?
  4. Week 2 - Rams vs Cardinals

    They may also be without Andre Smith as well. Should be another good game for the defense as the Skins held them from scoring till the very end of the game. As Ive said before, I dont expect to see many, if any, of the 45+ point games this year, but this could be one. But Im just more interested to seeing us hit the ground running, no rusty first quarter/half like last week
  5. Kick Returner

    Returners are less and less important in the game today. I can see why we just want to grab a solid guy that we are comfortable with as an in flight replacement rather than try to find some home run hitter.
  6. Week 1 - Rams @ Raiders - MNF

    I know no coach will ever admit to thinking another NFL team is anything other than a big game, but do we think the fact that we were starting with the Mess that is the Raiders, and possibly the worst team in the NFL in the Cardinals for weeks 1 & 2 (and 2 more home games after that) had anything to do with McVay not playing the Starters in the preseason? Like if we started the year against the Vikings, I feel like Goff & Co would have gotten the Preseason Week 3 reps like in the past,
  7. The Predator

    I agree, but that wsnt the sentiment being thrown out there in the criticism. Especially when calling out the acting chops as the issue with this cast, when the original had nearly negative acting skills. I actually think if they were smart with this one they would have gone back to that style of protagonist group, embrace the camp, have the crazy looking task force, make you root for the Predator(s) until we get down to the one redeemable guy (the new Arnold) to have the final showdown.
  8. The Predator

    You praise one for being "badass" and then knock the new one for not having the acting chops? Those are two separate things. Do you actually think the cast of the original could act? It was mostly a bunch of muscle dudes (a look that doesnt play as much today) throwing out hacky one liners. The original Predator was awesome because of how "badass" of an antagonist the Predator was, combined with the Charisma (not acting) of Arnold, with some sweet actions scenes thrown in. Of the actual Acting roles in the original, it was really just Carl Weathers. And in the equivalent role, Sterling K Brown is at least as good. (and to most, a much better actor) Outside of him, as much a I love Jesse Ventura, Id take Keegen-Michael Key over him as an actor to play the "mouth" role. And after that, are Bill Duke, Sonny Landham, Richard Chaves or any of the "other guys" big influences on the movie? Not really, they are just monster fodder. And actually a bunch of those types in this new one are actual actors, not just jobbers. What it really comes down to is Schwarzenegger vs Boyd Holbrook, which is a first round knockout. I like Boyd in some stuff, but they needed a better leading man to get that Predator feel going. Not many can hold a candle to what Arnold was in the 80s, but they could have gotten closer. If your beef really is that this cast doesnt look "badass enough" for you... sounds like a typical lame ultra-machismo take. Becasue if we are looking for actors with track records as strong, bad *** fighters, who nail one liners, Id say Jake Busey, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Olivia Munn, and even Trevante Rhodes nail that group. And Boyd would be amazing in that group, it would look much better on the surface if they got someone like The Rock (not him because he would over shadow the movie) and everyone else got knocked down one peg.
  9. Week 1 - Rams @ Raiders - MNF

    Are you sure about that? Seem like exactly something Gruden would do
  10. Rams attempted a trade for Mack

    Im pretty skeptical of how "lucrative" our offer was. Sooo many teams reached out to the Raiders, and we knew that the Rams were one of them. And sending Mack to the Bears makes the chance of their Pick being higher than the 20s much lower. Not to mention Oakland sent a 2nd rounder back, so they didnt really get 2 Firsts. I wouldnt be shocked if we offered a 1st and potentially a 3rd (because we are looking at the Comp picks we are getting in the next 2 years). But I dont think anyone was close to what the bears offered, and they only offered that much because they got to have Contract talks. Speaking of Contract talks, Im not sure we would have given him that extension. We may have been looking at these next 2 seasons and said were just pushing for the Super Bowl right now (potentially Tagging him next year)
  11. Captain Marvel (March 2019)

    Im still not sure why anyone cares about any of these EW spreads. They are always nothing but Hype and dont really show us much.
  12. The STL Cardinals Thread - Baseball Is Weird (73-58)

    We did, his name is Dexter Fowler
  13. Rams 2018 offseason

    But we just need a guy who could come in for a half to 2 games and we could still move the ball. Because if you actually lose your Starter at QB for the rest of the season, then in most situations you’re screwed. (the Nick Foles run is the major exception and clearly a fluke the way he’s been playing this preseason) But to lean on the running game, and the defense with a dumbed down passing attack is all we would need from a backup
  14. Rams 2018 offseason

    I also wouldn’t hate taking a look at Nate Orchard as a rusher.
