Don't hold your breath waiting for that merger. Again, I just wonder where the county's head is at in all this. The county executive, Stenger, was quoted as saying he was supportive of the soccer project but did nothing because he was never asked by the soccer group for help. That's great leadership isn't it? Sit on your rear end and do nothing. Stenger's the same one who put the football effort behind the 8-ball by saying the county was out in terms of contributing to the new stadium.
I was surprised he was the No. 1 pick last year. So I guess my answer is no.
Good for Chase. I'm sure if he had his druthers, he'd rather be playing. But he has thrown only 78 regular-season passes since entering the league as an undrafted rookie in 2009.
Joyner was an interesting guy to talk to. Very serious, very dedicated, very passionate about football and improving at his craft. That being said, I've yet to see the kind of playmaking ability that he displayed in college. His lack of size hurt him playing the slot, and he didn't seem to have great speed. Maybe free safety will be a better spot for him.
So in this scenario, Kroenke is King Arthur?
Have not. My thought process on this is that the answers would be pretty predictable.
Glad you brought this up. Was thinking about it last night and earlier today. So it's OK for the league to grab $750 million in public money from Las Vegas (actually $950 million, I'm told, if you include public money for upkeep over the life of the stadium.) But players can't participate in an arm-wrestling tournament? H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y.
From what I can tell, the fans are still supporting their team there. I was at the Green Bay-Tennessee game last year and it was a pretty lively. In my mind, the stadium looked to be in pretty good shape. I think there are some ownership-related issues, but I don't think it's anything that would lead to relocation. By the way, do you remember the play near the end of the game in '99 where Faulk literally helped Hakim off the ground to get him on the line of scrimmage in the 2-minute drill?
Does the winner get the Governor's Cup?
I have always enjoyed my trips to Indianapolis _ been there several dozen times over the years for NFL games, NFL Scouting Combine, even some NCAA Tournament basketball. Very nice, compact downtown area.
And there have it. . . . .
I think Gurley already knows what it's like to perform at the next level. He did so as a rookie. He just needs a strong offseason of training and preparation to get back to rookie-like production.
Rams had more than enough money to re-sign Britt. Look at what they spent on Robert Woods.
My main question here is how does a 6-8 guy work at guard? That's awfully tall for all the pulling and quick movement that position requires, not to mention playing the leverage game in that confined environment.
I've said this many times. It's all about the TV dollars. We're still a ways away from new TV deals, but if ratings continue to decline, then and only then, will the league have any second thoughts about the way it does business.
I don't know why you wouldn't rebuild after 4-12.
1.) Maybe they're still trying to trade Trumaine. 2.) Remember, Joyner is now playing free safety. 3.) Even without 1 and 2, I think they still need a starting quality cornerback.
We're about to find out, because it's hard to imagine Quinn playing anything but OLB in a 3-4. (Although, I'm sure the Rams will have plenty of 4-3 looks in passing situations.)
There were about 12,000 Rams fans in the stands in Indy that day in 1995, and they inadvertently helped get the Colts' fans riled up. Marshall Faulk (of course, then playing for Indianapolis) was so quick that day, he made the Rams' secondary look like they were playing in concrete cleats.
Sullivan was a backup in Washington last season, so he does know the NcVay offense. He's nearly 3 years older than Barnes, about the same size. I'd say it's debatable that he's much of an upgrade.
I assume you mean by not placing the franchise tag on him. In that case, you don't get the compensatory pick until next year. And by league rule the maximum pick you're getting is an end of the third round guy.
As the Rams were _ kings of the league _ for a moment.
I' going to answer one-more from former 1,000-yard rusher and former Ram Cleveland Gary, before we call it a day. That Bruce, Holt, Hakim, Proehl quartet as indeed amazing. The falloff since Bruce and Holt left has been dramatic, hasn't it? Until next week. . . .thanks for playing.
