  • "Sounds like"?!?
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • 4 years 36 million. Sounds like a pretty good deal for the Rams if he can stay healthy.

  • Rams have had a very good offseason so far, plus their 2 1st rd picks. Watch out.

  • Boy, passing on Matt Ryan for Jake Long and Chad Henne looks smarter by the minute, doesn't it?

    I've defended Jeff Ireland a few times, but I think he was indefensibly idiotic during the past week. He pays Mike Wallace $65 million, and hands out $61 million in cash to a couple linebackers, but can't find $36 million for Jake Long? Excuse me?

    No chance Jeff Ireland still has a GM job in 365 days.

  • Long has definitely declined and has not looked elite the past couple of years, but he's still a big upgrade for the Rams OL and gives them flexibility to draft elsewhere. Big score for them. Can't believe this deal wasn't something the Dolphins were willing to do, it seemed like Long was giving them every chance to re-sign him.

    A friend of mine is a huge Phins fan and he is just fed up with Ireland these days. He likes the moves they have made, but really thinks they could have done more to keep Long as well as spend their money more wisely rather than on a position that wasn't much of need for them, LBer.

  • Well given where he was at and that franchise his decline may have been just the whole dysfunctional group as far as the franchise goes. Guys like this given a new situation and a coach willing to let them play can light stuff up. Fisher appears to think keeping things close and hoping the offense can put up enough points to win is how they are going to be a factor. Lets see how their draft goes as well.

    I said that last year.

    Jeff Ireland is the schizophrenic Tim Ruskell. But he has the owner's ear.

  • Rams fan here. We are VERY excited to get Jake Long, and the contract for Jake Long is only $16 mil guaranteed. It looks like the Rams protected themselves very well if his play diminishes or his injury problems persists. He was given a clean bill of health, so I am cautiously optimistic. We had to do something given the run on pass rushers you guys acquired.

    Now if we could just acquire a WR and Safety, we may be on to something. The Rams arent in the Seahawks or 49ers class yet, but hopefully with another good FA class (so far, and FA isnt even a week old) and another good draft class, we could make the gap smaller.

    The only problem I have is that it is still only March! Competitive football is still 5-6 months away!

  • Jake's game might have slipped a little of late, but he's still young enough that he could have a big resurgence in a new environment. Rams are going to need the help though if they want to keep Bradford healthy in the new black and blue division.

    You got just a good a squad as anyone else.

  • I will not be surprised if the Rams are one of the two best teams in the west.

  • Something I didn't realize until I read this article:

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... ?track=rss

    Anyone watch the Dolphins - Hard Knocks?

    Philbin claims he has an open door policy, but is it a coincidence that the three leaders – Dansby, tailback Reggie Bush and offensive tackle Jake Long - who confronted him last summer about developing a leadership council after disagreeing on Chad Johnson's release are no longer on the team?

    "Absolutely not," said one player. "Those guys challenged him, more than once, and he doesn't like that."


    Interesting...

    Only if Bradford is one of the two best quarterbacks in the west.

    Not that it means a darn thing, but I find it interesting that 60% of fans rated the Dolphins offseason the best in the NFL (nfl network poll). They are also in arguably the best position in this deep draft to add impact players.

    Now I don't follow the dolphins admittedly, but I just found it interesting the gap between those in the know and those who aren't. Just glad we have JS
