These threads haven't really gotten as much traffic as I hoped. But anyways my rams need to sign a legit OT or draft one. SAMs not gonna play well if we can't protect him. Phone Post

i bet they bite on a tackle in the first round. a good starter can can move saffold back to guard and that improves one entire side. and that oline was pretty good when they were all healthy last year. almost gauranteed fisher trades back with  a pick too to get another 2nd rounder.  tavon austin would be sweet to get and the honey badger would be a good later round steal.

Rams also need a big threat at WR.  I like Bradford as a QB, so w/an improved O-line and a 'go-to' WR to throw the ball to, I could see this team vying for the playoffs next year.  RB is a question mark, but I agree w/letting S-Jax walk.



2 first round picks will help them immensely too.

rams are potentially at a huge turning point . fisher in and the rg3 picks can set the stage for something big. theyre in a rough division so theyre record will give them pretty good picks for a year or two. the skins are in a competitive division too so those picks will be decent especially if rg3 goes down early and they tank a season. when its all done i bet that one number 2 pick turns into seven players via trades . theyve already got Jenkins and Brockers in that exchange , so if they keep capitalizing on picks this could be just like when Dallas traded herschel walker i think for all those picks and the rest was history.

I would assume Ed Reed retires... any word on the street?

ed reed mentioned he would play for b-chick in an interview. 

I agree re:Ed Reed.  I could see him landing in Denver or NE

oh yeah denver will def make a play too . they are in win now mode too.

Alex smith to KC and Bowe is getting tagged Phone Post

As a Browns fan, it makes me feel bittersweet to see what Peyton Hillis has ended up being. The guy had the whole fanbase behind him, but was demanding that big payday and refused to play. Now he's a journeyman who will be lucky to be 3rd string making a million a year.

I'd like the Browns to pick up some young talent in Free Agency. Our team is young, so no need to pick up guys riding off into the sunset.


I just hope the Raiders don't F up this draft for the Browns by taking Milliner at #3.  If so, the Brownies should trade down and stockpile some pics.
