    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    Here are my answers:

    Not Jim Haslett. Specifically, I'll go with Jim Schwartz (currently DC of the Tennessee Titans).

    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009?

    Yes, though I would not be shocked if there is some acrimony over a requested voluntary pay cut.

    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe?

    Yes, they have to.

    4. Will the Rams re-sign Ron Bartell?

    Yes, they REALLY have to.

    5. Who will the Rams select in the first round of the draft?

    An OT. My money's on Michael Oher or Andre Smith.

    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft?

    Yes. Round 4.

    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs?

    Yes. Let's go with Jordan Gross.

    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason?

    Dane Looker.

    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades?

    No.

    10. Will the Rams be sold?

    No.

    These I still have questions marks,
    7- I really hope so, however I don't know which marquee FA would like to come to the Rams given the current state of affairs.

    8- for some reason I think it will be Looker.

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    1. Maybe Schwartz.
    2. Let's hope not. He is slow, and way past his prime.
    3. Yes.
    4. If we don't, then our secondary will be non-existent.
    5. I will go with Michael Oher. Andre Smith isn't a bad pick, but I like Oher as the better pick.
    6. Yes. Most likely in the middle rounds, 4-5
    7. Let's hope we get Matt Birk. I am really hoping we get this guy. Crowder is also a good player, and so is Bigby.
    8. Hmm. I have mixed thoughts about Looker. He is good enough to play as our 4th receiver.
    9. Get Tory Holt and maybe even Pace out of here, assuming if other teams are even interested.
    10. I wish.

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    1. Who will be the Rams Head Coach for 2009?
    Who knows. It won't be the Haz for sure.

    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009?
    Yes. We can't have a bunch of rookies and first years running the field. We need Holt's leadership on the field.
    You think the players were mad when they lost Bruce? Imagine what happens when we lose both Holt and Bruce.

    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe?
    They better. He's our only good safety. If we get rid of Atogwe, that's TWO safeties we need to get in the offseason.

    4. Will the Rams re-sign Ron Bartell?
    They better.

    5. Who will the Rams select in the first round of the draft?
    OT. Oher, Monroe, Smith. You name it. It'll be one of them.

    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft?
    Yes. 4th round or later

    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs?
    Yes. Who? I don't know. Will they? Most likely.

    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason?
    Hate to say it, but Dane Looker. He has been playing his heart out, but he may be the one to go.

    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades?
    No

    10. Will the Rams be sold?
    No

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    1. Who will be the Rams Head Coach for 2009?
    I want to say Steve Spagnuolo, DC, New York Giants... but I believe he'll stay. For this reason, I've got 2 candidates. Firstly,

    Jim Schwartz, DC, Tennessee, makes too much sense.

    My other pick is right out of left field.

    Ron English, Defensive Coordinator, University of Louisville.

    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009?
    Yes. The same will not be said for Drew Bennett.

    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe?
    Yes.

    4. Will the Rams re-sign Ron Bartell?
    Yes.

    5. Who will the Rams select in the first round of the draft?
    This is interesting. I can see potentially Detroit, Cincinatti and Oakland all looking toward offensive tackle with their first pick, and I think, as things stand, they all pick ahead of us. Even Kansas City could use another.

    My pick is Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss, but realism is nagging at me on this one. I'd like to include a clause that it will NOT be a quarterback. If Oher is taken, it comes down to CB Malcom Jenkins or LB James Laurinitis, for mind. Assuming my answers to 3, 4 and 7 are correct, the Rams will have a fair bit of money stitched up in that secondary. For this reason, the pick is Laurinitis, who will move into the middle, meaning Witherspoon will become a starter at outside linebacker, replacing Culberson.

    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft?
    Yes. In the third or fourth round.

    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs?
    Yes. Here's my short list. I believe we'll sign at least one, possibly two.

    Jordan Gross, OT, Carolina
    Matt Birk, C, Minnesota
    TJ Houshmanzadeh, WR, Cincinatti (though this is unlikely)
    Albert Haynesworth, DT, Tennessee (especially if Schwartz is coach)
    Karlos Dansby, LB, Arizona
    Atari Bigby, SS, Green Bay
    Dunta Robinson, CB, Houston

    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason?
    Henry Ellard, Unfortunately.

    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades?
    No- not unless Holt wants out. In this case, Holt will unfortunately be traded for a 3rd or 4th round pick.

    10. Will the Rams be sold?
    No

    Dane Looker.

    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades?

    No.

    10. Will the Rams be sold?

    No.
    1. Better yet, whose your GM? How can you hire a coach when you don't know who the GMi is? hmmmmm...........ok, forget that for now. Yes, 1) Steve Spagnuolo and 1a) your guy Jim Schwartz - I liked him for Falcons last year and had a good interview - he was well thought of by the Falcons org - along with Spagnuolo

    2. Yes, Holt will probably be back.....at this point, he probably just wants to serve out his sentence before parole (aka "retirement")

    3. Yes, why not - you can't get rid of everybody (this OJ out of prison)

    4. Yes, let's keep him too (Bartell)

    5. Rams will take an offensive tackle - Michael Oher......then will realize that even though better protected, Marc Bulger still sucks

    6. Yes, that would be a stellar idea to draft a QB......but you are not getting a franchise guy in round 4 - good luck with that. Why don't you guys go after Matt Cassell?

    7. Doubtful, its going to be hard to convince a big-time free agent to come to St. Louis now don't cha think? Gotta have one good year first. Of course if you overpay you might be able to get a big name. Focus on filling out the roster with medium priced but high effort and character players to turn the culture around.

    8. have no idea.......Looker? ok, I guess....How about Leonard Little? He makes a lot of money and is clearly past his prime - how many DUI's has he had?

    9. Significant Trades? doubtful.......

    10. Sold? no, because they would be selling "low" right now - need to get the franchise turned around - then sell....

    Yes, because Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Kurt Warner, etc. were all first round picks ...

    As for the DUI comment, well, fill in the blanks, ____ ___ ....

    Amazing how one decent year in Atlanta seemingly makes you an expert on how to turn NFL franchises around ...

    This from the guy who thinks we should commit salary cap suicide and draft a QB in round one

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009?
    yes, but only to be traded.

    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe?
    yes, cuz they have to.

    yes, cuz they have to.

    OL unless the top 3 or 4 get taken right in front of them, if so, it'll be the top defender on the board.
    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft?
    absolutely.
    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs?
    no, but they'll try as hell to trade for one.
    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason?

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    1. Who will be the Rams Head Coach for 2009? I'll go with Schwartz. The Titans have had a pretty stout defense for a long time even through the cap-strapped years, and he's a particularly hot commodity now.

    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009? Yes, but we'll still hear rumors that he's on the trading block.

    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe? Yes.

    4. Will the Rams re-sign Ron Bartell? Yes.

    5. Who will the Rams select in the first round of the draft? Rey Maualuga. Questions linger as to whether Witherspoon is suited for the middle, and the run defense is still one of the team's biggest weaknesses. His attitude and fire will also be welcomed on a team looking for leadership on the field.

    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft? Yes.

    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs? If Haynesworth seeks a bigger deal on the free market than the Titans offer him, and we do have Schwartz as the head coach, you can be sure he would lobby hard to make this happen. Otherwise, we'll focus on signing our own free agents but not make any big splashes.

    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason? The real question might be who will be the longest tenured Ram left.

    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades? No.

    10. Will the Rams be sold? Not yet.

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    1. Who will be the Rams Head Coach for 2009?
    I'm going to say Steve Spagnuolo
    2. Will Torry Holt return to the Rams in 2009? He will. No doubt.
    3. Will the Rams re-sign O.J. Atogwe?
    Yes. Despite pass coverage miscues, He's too good of a playmaker to let go. Chavous has to be replaced.
    4. Will the Rams re-sign Ron Bartell?
    Yes. He's improving.
    5. Who will the Rams select in the first round of the draft?
    Michael Oher. Andre Smith if Oher is taken, but Oher will be the guy.
    6. Will the Rams take a QB in the draft? Curtis Painter in the 4th, or Willie Tuitama in the 5th.
    7. Will the Rams sign any "big name" FAs? Jordan Gross. He'll play LT while Oher replaces Barron at RT.
    8. Who will be the longest tenured Ram released in the offseason? Dane Looker. His services are no longer needed.
    9. Will the Rams make any signficant trades? Nope. I can't even remember the last trade we made, so I'm sure they won't this year.
    10. Will the Rams be sold?
    In Due time Chip.

    Re: 10 Burning Questions For Upcoming Months

    I would love it if we drafted Curtis Painter, but more for personal reasons than football ones. He played high school ball in Vincennes Indiana, about 40 minutes from my hometown. They are in our conference, and he absolutely destroyed us when we played. Not sure how well he'll do in the NFL, but it sure would be pretty cool to see him in horns.
