Yeah, I think that's the worst "St. Louis" Rams draft pick ever. But to be honest, you would've had to have gone to the third RB in that draft Eddie George, to find a keeper. Because Toim Biakabutuka certainly didn't work out.
I think it's pathetic that a league as wealthy as the NFL continues to do this in 2016 and 2017 (if the Raiders end up moving). How can changing the addresses of one-tenth of your league, and alienating three fan bases, be a good thing?
I hear you, and so do thousands of others in StL.
Well, he'll be 37 on April 21.
Yeah, we do let some questions/comments, uh, slide.
Paul, from where I sit typing at 3:41 Central time, I think you've got a pretty good read on the situation.
We'll see. I think that's more true with the Cardinals than the Seahawks. I think as long as Russell Wilson is there, Seattle will remain very competitive.
They've drafted very well lately, and know, as much as Jerry would like to take all the credit, I don't think he was the driving force behind all those picks.
And they made Byrd stand up in some meetings to prevent him from falling asleep. He liked the night life.
No, but you know how the legal system works. S-L-O-W.
Listen, I get the bitterness by the fans. And you don't get over that in a year, not the way the circumstances unfolded here. I just don't think it should be directed at fans of the team, be they in St. Louis are LA. Bash Kroenke and Demoff all you want. But the fans are mere pawns in all this.
If you keep throwing darts at the wall, sooner or later you're going to connect. Right? Will be interesting to see, if the draft approach changes any without Fisher around this year.
True, but it's possible if you just added another effective starter or two to the mix you already have. I don't think anyone's ever said you had to replace the entire group.
Uh, you've got me on that one. I would think the dome formerly known as the Ed would meet WrestleMania standards.
Very interesting conspiracy theory you have there. Remember, Fisher would've become the losingest "regular season" coach of all time. He would have needed to coach into the 2017 season to become the losingest overall coach of all time (regular season plus post-season). But I wouldn't put it past the Rams.
Well, I think the fact that the Patriots were facing the Atlanta defense and not Denver's may have had a little something to do with it as well.
Jeff did have a high opinion of himself, but that makes him no different from any other veteran coach. There may have been other staffs that worked harder, but by no means do I think that Fisher was just coasting and collecting paychecks. Fisher could be very engaging when he wanted to be. He also could be very condescending when he wanted to be. But overall, not a bad guy to work with, with one notable exception.
