As a Michigan fan, I hope he does well. As a Dolphin fan, I'm not really upset...
aren't you upset?
For the price they paid, I'm kind of pissed the Lions couldn't make a move for him.
Very limited cap space, I think only 200,000 left.
hey could have freed up quite a bit by restructuring Stafford's contract like they did with Megatron. I bet Stafford would have if he knew it was to get Jake Long protecting him. Oh well looks like they will go with Eric Fisher at 5 if he is there.
To restructure his contract for months now. In addition to that, Staff doesn't strike me as an individual who would take less money for the team. He wants to get paid. I agree with the Fisher thing tho, beats drafting Gosder in the top-20 or a (possible) Guard top-15 like Reiff.
PS) OLine predictions assuming A)we don't take a 1st round tackle and B) we do but he doesn't start. I can't even think of a rotation. Reiff-Sims-Raiola-Gandy-Hilliard/Chris Fox?! Eeek
I don't know that this makes the Rams on the same level as Seattle or S.F. St Louis still has Bradford as their QB has not shown me anything. Also, who is their running back now?
Daryl Richardson did pretty well last year as the backup. I think he could be a viable starter, or they could draft someone. Running backs aren't that hard to replace, especially if you build a good offensive line.
No one said fear the rams... Just the NFC West wouldn't be a joke.
Bradford hasn't shown anything because he's been on his butt most of his career. That OL has been horrible. It just got better.
Rams went 4-1-1 last year against NFC West. Not losing to SF.
As for Running back, Jackson was sharing carries last year... And they have the draft.
No arguing they need help in offense... WR and RB.. But you cannot deny how stellar that defense was last year.
And lastly.. For a team that's always at 2 wins... A .500 season is a good start. NFC West could have 3 teams over .500 or at .500... Looking back on that division... That's damn good.
He was a second round pick last year. It will be a battle between him an Richardson for starting job and they may spilt .
As a St Louis area resident, I'm happy that next time I go to see the Rams play, I'll have a player to root for. I may even get a Jake Long jersey...
The NFC West was no joke... especially defensively. Go Rams!
I swear anyone could be the GM for the Lions.
I hope he knows what e is doing. The Rams dont make me think of a team on the rise.
