I don't know if they will qualify as the youngest team this year, so the expiration date may have arrived on that one.
Won't be out in Irvine this summer. But thx for the kind words. And if you're at the Rams game in Dallas, tailgating, look for me.
Sorry Derrick. There will always be football fans. Baseball town. Football nation.
Thinking of covering that one myself. I really think Titans are a team to watch this year.
Hey, it's merely the going rate for QBs. He's brought the Raiders a long way in a pretty short time.
Not aware of that. What are some of the subsidies?
Thx. We'll be around every week for the next 10 1/2 months.
I think I've mentioned before on the chat, I am intrigued by McVay. Based on last year, I don't see the magic in Goff. But we'll see. He's got plenty of coaches around him with experience working with QBs, which wasn't the case with the last staff.
Of course he was handpicked by McVay, although I wonder if he was McVay's first choice. You can also bet that the WRs and TE drafted by the Rams were handpicked by McVay
He's a pretty good player, who I think played with more confidence and more aggressiveness last season. I think other teams started throwing away from him last year. I think he likes playing in California (believe he's from northern Cal.) but I think we're talking about $9 million plus per year to keep him. Just the cost of doing business these days in the NFL
It does boggle the mind. In the short term, with their pockets padded with relocation dollars, I don't think the owners will think twice about the Rams being back in LA. But I've heard of some owners who realize that Kroenke may not have what it takes to run a franchise that's capable of winning consistently.
Not really familiar with the area.
That's what I did early in my career, covered Mizzou, and what was then the Big 8, and some national stuff as well. But we have a great Mizzou writer in Dave Matter and Mark Tupper does a fine job with the Illini.
Good to be back. And thanks for the kind words. I appreciate the story idea. But perhaps a better one might be on how San Diego is coping with the loss of the Chargers, since their departure is more immediate. Oakland's a tougher call since the team is still there.
OK, that's it for this week. A great response from you all for our first time out of the box this season. See you next week, and as always. . .thanks for playing.
