    You get your wish. It was made LOUD and CLEAR in St. Louis last night at the season ticket holder pre-draft event thingy. B was brought up on stage, vids of him. He is the guy. Here we go 2014.

    I will have to hope he figures it out and does something this year. No other option.

    Now. There must've been days, if you are a true Hawk fan when you did not like how your team was, but you still loved them. No?
    Or have you forgotten that now that you are a good solid winning team? You becoming like the Niners?

    Alice, that's a bit over the top now. I just said I love your draft....

  • I can feel for the real Ram fans, but I still like to laugh at them because of their coach and some of the fans that come on here puffing out their chest and asking who can cover their receivers?! I still laugh out loud at that one.

    They are like a boat that has been under restoration forever. They got pretty new oars, nice seats, a new finish, just about everything needed. The only problem is they forgot all about the huge Bradford hole in the bottom.

    I'm a Seahawk fan on a Seahawk board. It's required that I be facetious and insulting to Ram fans. Especially if I do it nicely.:)

  • Rams had a good first round but they MUST get a QB of the future. I would of taken Bortles @ 2 or at least traded up for Bridgewater.

    The Rams are seriously a QB and a big bodied receiver away from being legit. And there defense alone might win them some games this year. However, without a good QB and another good WR, they won't be any better than average.

    Its not too late though. They could still land Carr or another QB with pretty decent potential. If I was a Rams fans, expect to lose a lot of games while holding the opponent to less than 20 points.

    The Rams are the new Jets.

  • I think the Rams got a great player in Donald, but at some point, you have to wonder about the law of diminishing returns. Their D-Line in nickel situations was already one of the best in the NFL. That line really couldn't play any better against our OL than they have over the past two seasons. So maybe Donald gets a sack on Russell where Quinn or Long would've gotten one instead. I'd be more concerned if they got a legitimate QB or a playmaker at basically any other position on D or O.

  • It's like us drafting a CB or FS/SS with a 1st round pick. That defense was already legit but they have nothing on offense and Bradford. It's just silly.

    Beautiful darling, I was answering Strap, not you. As to you loving our draft, well I already acknowledged we kept B. To the sadness of Rams fans everywhere Fisher has made this clear to us: eat your vegetables, you are not getting any dessert.

    Agree with this. To be honest, I am still trying with all my endurance to process the pre-draft season ticket holders meeting where FIsher pretty much made out Bradford to be a rockstar, like Mick Jagger. i've seen Mick Jagger in concert recently - he's more nimble than Bradford even at his old age.

    Based on this, today's draft was good. Now, I guess we will see if B is any good this year.

    I expect Rams to take a QB w one of the next 3 picks, hopefully a good one. We do have Shaun Hill you know. He's better than Clemons. Yay.

    A better oc would be a way to max that talent.

  • Alice, it's nothing personal.

    The Rams had a good draft.

    You have two of the top 13 picks, it's easy to have a good draft.

    What gives me gas, was last year after the draft (Rams with top picks, again) we had asshat Rams fans coming in here and asking how we were going to cover your receivers. Again, how was the best secondary in football going to cover your new draft picks. Fart.

    Then after watching the way your team handled themselves in the game at Seattle, I have no shits to give.

    Reach .500, get out of last place in the division.

    I see where you are coming from, but I scoff at this. I think 52 players on a roster make up maybe half of a teams talent. Maybe a lot less than half, in extreme cases like say, the Denver Broncos.

    Though Wilson may only throw 25 passes a game, he is probably responsible for almost half our wins.

    I do not think Bradford is a WR or an OC away from being an asset. I am beyond relieved to see them foolishly pass on Manziel, twice.

    That Rams defense is overachieving if anything, it has been so good with players who are mostly outperforming their draft projections. So impressive, and yet... it took a late season surge to hit 7-9. Again.

    I buy into the idea of building a nest for the QB, but the Rams reached that point a couple years ago and have been spinning their wheels since.

    Donald was a good pick, Robinson might turn out to be a good pick. But regardless, nothing the Rams did really moved the needle much. Barring a revelation over the next two days, the Rams will be the same old rams again in 2014. A pain in the ass, but not a contender.

    I almost concur, if we weren't so damned strong right now. I honestly think the Rams will edge out Santa Clara for the second spot in the NFC West. Really, they could win about a half a dozen games right now 7-6, with the lone touchdown coming off a defensive fumble return.

    They did well so far, and have a lot of firepower to work with from here. Kinda feels like their whole strategy is "Defense wins championships, so we're gonna build the defense into this juggernaut, and hope the offense doesn't get in their way."

    Bradford may be a journeyman quarterback, but he's at least half decent, and if healthy, he can dink and dunk them to several games better than they were last year. And that's kinda scary.

  • The Rams drafted exceptionally well which would be hard not to do in this draft with those picks. Robinson is perfect for their rushing game. Donald could elevate their pass rush to devastating.

    They plugged holes and picked up decent talent throughout the draft.

    The Bradford hate, even among Rams fans, is very odd. Last season he would have been one of the best rated QBs in the league if the Rams weren't plagued by drops while he was playing. Four of the 21 dropped passes in seven games were TDs. Even then, only Manning had more TDs at that point.

    He may be a bust but that will be because of health.
