The new GM in Indy didn't make any splash moves, but lots of medium-sized ones that could help get the team back on track. We covered about 3 games in Indy last year, hope to get back again in 2017. Don't know what will happen with Donald. Lots of players are loyal to the team that drafted them.
I just wonder if some of the things Kroenke and Demoff said in the LA Times interview right after the relocation vote may come back to bite them.
I truly think he's good enough to play in any system. I wonder though if they move him around some up front _ like they did to a degree last year. Obviously, his body type doesn't fit the prototypical NFL nose tackle.
I think they still see some talent there and are trying to salvage something out of a high pick.
Well, it's not by accident that the suit was filed in St. Louis Circuit Court.
They lost a fair amount of free agents and also had some injury issues last season. Obviously, their division is tough _ at least in terms of Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Sometimes the message of the head coach gets stale. Sometimes a particular group of players just maxes out. They lost six games by 8 points or less _ one-possession games _ last season. So they weren't that far off.
Interesting point. I will wait until the 53-man roster is set in early Sept. to come up with a tally. But the "St. Louis" Rams on the squad certainly are dwindling rapidly.
Surprising for sure. He seem widely respected working what's obviously a very tough job. Wonder if the added pressure of basically being the final say on replay challenges pushed him over the top.
Seems like overkill looking back, but I think there was a time when Kroenke wasn't exactly sure how this would work out.
If I had to pick one, I'd say Seattle. Vibrant city, and the game-day atmosphere is unlike any in the NFL right now. And it has become a pretty good rivalry.
Not sure which answer you're talking about. On my side of the chat, I don't see an answer posted at 3:44.
Thanks for the clarification.
I believe it's still Snead.
I talked to a scout late in the season who liked Hill. Thought he had the skill to be a starter in the league. The fact that it's a deep draft at running back probably hurts his chances of going even in the middle rounds. But I will be surprised if he's not at least a late-round pick.
Let's see what happens with the draft. Some team that gets shut out at QB in the draft might turn Kaepernick's way.
Ran into him at the owners meetings in Phoenix in late March. Interestingly, I did a radio hit on a San Diego station and a webcast in Oakland yesterday. So therapy is in full mode.
It's all about Cam Newton there. He didn't play very well last season. Granted he had shoulder issues, but he needs to return to form. The secondary, which struggled mightily early, will be better. The running game must bounce back as well.
OK, that's it for this week. We'll be back next Tuesday for one last chat before the draft. Thanks for playing. . . . .
