  • The Official St. Louis Rams 2010 Offseason Discussion Thread

    Well, it's looking like we will have another top 10 (like top 5 pick) again in 2010. With that said, these are the things running through my mind right now.

    1.) I don't think they will can Spags after just one season, but his specialty was the defensive line and although we aren't the most talented group, we do have a few pieces to work with. Thus far, I haven't see anything to get excited about.

    2.) Laurent Robinson looks like a great acquisition and although injury prone, should be the answer for one of our receiving spots. Loved this trade earlier and I'm still thrilled even though we lost LR for the year.

    3.) You would think the oline would dominate after the draft picks and signings the past couple years, but it still looks like a huge work in progress. Bell was a key FA signing in '08. Brown in '09. Barron and Smith were both 1st rounders. Yet we look terrible! How can we turn things around?

    4.) Bulger just doesn't have it anymore. We have many other pressing issues, but I don't see us going any other direction that QB in round 1.

    5.) What do you see as our biggest needs and in what order? This is my position draft as of today:

    Rd 1 - QB - Boller and Null aren't the answers. Tavaris Jackson would be a nice camp body too.
    Rd 2 - DE - Little is old and we need a future replacement and depth.
    Rd 3 - DT - Carricker can't stay healthy and this is the heart and soul of Spags Defense.
    Rd 4 - LB - Would round out our LB unit.
    Rd 5 - RB - If Sjax goes down we are in a lot of trouble!
    Rd 6 - WR - Depth is a huge concern when we are signing WR3's off the street.
    Rd 7 - DB - Sooner or later one has to pan out.


    Curious what your thoughts are on these points through just 4 weeks of the season. We knew it was going to be a tough year, but it's every bit and then some!!!

    I've never been, but I've not heard of any particularly bad experience. I can't imagine it's as tough as trying to get autographs after a game, and I've actually had some decent luck with that in the past. Usually the stories I hear about camp is that, afterwards, players are more than happy to sign some autographs or get some pictures taken.

    My friend and I are thinking about going to Training Camp. I've never been to one, how is it? How are the people there? is it tough to get autographs, I mean I don't want to be holding around a football or helmet if it's pretty tough to get em signed.

    They were talking about it on PTI today and they were all against T.O. going to the Rams, because the reasons you gave earlier. Not good for a young QB and team. He may be better than what they got but not for Bradford. T.O. will probably end up with Cincinnatti.

    The cons outweigh the pros. He's not going to be the same dynamic and productive player he was in Philly and Dallas. Even if he's capable of doing it, which is a big if, he won't on this team. He'll probably come out closer to his Buffalo production, which is still an improvement for the Rams but not enough to justify his ego, maturity issues, and the time he'd take away from younger guys who may be able to develop into a long-term contributor. Not to mention the damage he could do to Bradford if he starts getting in his ear.

    TO would be an upgrade for you guys, but I just wouldn't want him with my franchise rookie QB, because sometimes TO has a way of screwing up a QB's progressions. Even a guy like Romo started forcing balls his way, so a young guy looking at a future HOFer like TO may do the same.


    He has still got at least something left, but he just wants the ball every play, always thinks he's open, drops balls way too much, seems like he's more trouble then anything. Bad team, rookie QB, losing at least 12 games, seems like it's not the best formula for TO.

    His height means nothing if he can't stay on the field. Four surgeries on his knee since the end of 2008. I doubt he'll be able to hold up, but if the Rams doctors think otherwise, they may bring him in to at least compete in camp.

    Still, kind of a testament to what they feel they already have at receiver that guys like McRae and Curry are making legitimate pushes for roster spots, and now the Rams may look at Alexander.

    I heard that the Rams are interesting in TO. They asked him if we would be interesting in playing for them even though they aren't a contending team and he said he would consider it.

    I think they are going to give him an offer.
    Not a huge fan. His impact for the Rams would likely be closer to his production in Buffalo than in Dallas or Philly, and it would likely be for only a one year deal. I'd rather see what the young receivers on the roster can do.

We have no back-up running back to Steven Jackson, who is not in the best of health. So if he goes down we have no one. Unga if he would have stayed in school and come out next year in the draft he would have been a 3rd round or better draft pick.
    Perhaps the Rams aren't convinced he'd bring anything to the table that they don't already have.
