I think he's certainly a guy the Rams will look at. The rap of course, will be that he's a system QB and that success running the spread in college doesn't always translate to success in the NFL.
Obviously, the conclusion is that the Rams don't have much confidence in their corners playing press coverage. Because if you miss a jam at the line of scrimmage, the chances for a big play obviously increase. (The Colts also had success w/press coverage vs. Denver.)
Fisher opted to go with veterans at center and right guard. Makes you wonder if the Rams feel he can be a starter in the league.
1.) I don't think the Bucs would trade Glennon for Stacy. Also, what does Glennon do for you. I don't see anything special there.
Haven't read it. What are his qualifications as a "stadium expert." Also, I don't need to read an article to realize that St. Louis would have to overpay to keep the Rams. That's kind of where we are in this.
I don't know. Just not seeing it.
I think it's a fun thing to do. I wrote a story on this last spring, with Frank Viverito of the St. Louis Sports Commission saying StL would be interested in trying to get the draft here. But he realizes, St. Louis wouldn't necessarily be in the first wave of cities chosen.
Yeah, what goes around comes around. As I understand the rule, the officials made the right call. But I just wonder if there isn't a better, clearer way to write a rule on catch/no-catch.
Well, he tried that back in 2010, but Stan Kroenke exercised his matching rights. From all indications, Shahid Kahn is trying to make it work in Jacksonville.
Well, I think that's about the only thing P& B can say at this time, because that's the only interpretation that keeps the Rams in St. Louis. (Assuming the stadium plan here becomes a reality.) As for myself, I have a certain amount of skepticism regarding NFL owners. In the past, I have often seen the league take the path of least resistance or bend the rules to resolve a situation.
No time like the present. It's one thing to gamble. It's another to leave your area of responsibility and try to do someone else's job on the field.
Uh, St. Louis isn't the land of .500. It's the land of 15-65 from 2007-11. It's the land of no winning seasons since 2003. It's the land of 20-27-1 under Fisher/Snead.
The NFL says to Kroenke: this is your market. Make it work. The fans come to the games to support the team and the players, not the owner.
The Rams have tall receivers in 2014: Quick 6-3, Britt 6-3, Cook 6-5, Kendricks 6-3.
Yeah, I wonder if Fisher suggested that Schottenheimer "look elsewhere." Although Schotty told me last week Fisher wanted him back. As for Bernie, I'm very glad he wrote that blog. I've been saying that for a couple of years. Coordinators call the plays, but they're operating under the head coach's overall offensive (and defensive) philosophy.
If it were up to me, I'd like to keep Kendricks and Cook. Cook hasn't been great, that's for sure, but he's been good. Until you've found something better why cut ties. There may also be some cap ramifications if he's released this offseason.
Rams are still high on him. When he made the final cut _ as the 9th D-lineman _ they knew he was very raw and probably wouldn't have an immediate impact. And he also suffered a broken hand that set him back for several weeks.
Sometimes these "predict the future" questions are a little extreme. As much as I generally like to play along, this one is pretty extreme. Unless something comes of the StL stadium plan, I'm gonna say "no one" is running out of the tunnel in 2020.
I'm sure Stan would rather have the entire market. But in my head I haven't totally dismissed the "partnering" concept. Although I'm not sure Spanos would want to share a market that he thinks he should get first crack at. Also, what makes the NFL think 2 teams would be supported there, when support for even one has been problematical.
At this point in the Rams' development, I would go more towards impact players.
Pretty sure they kick in the following year.
