    Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Cannot stress this enough, but I believe we made a horrible miscalculation in selecting Avery over Jackson. Avery can turn it around but he has had a miserable sophmore year to say the least.

    it was a huge mistake to take Avery over Jackson, but hindsight is always golden.

    That being said, there were signs that Jackson was the best PLAYMAKER is the draft, not necessarily the best WR. Make sense?

    I think Avery can develop into a decent, maybe even a very good slot receiver, but you don't spend a pick at the top of round 2 on a #3 receiver.

    I wonder how much Avery's pick deceision was based on Al Saunders input?

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    It's in the past now, Avery is our receiver and will be for some time i imagine. So why are we bringing this topic up again?

    Pointless argument to have. Brought in to two totally different situations.

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Yeah, put AVery on Eagles and Jackson on Rams and lets see how that works out...

    I hate when people try to do this.

    Avery is good, Jackson is probably better, but If Jackson was that good he would have went in top 10 picks.


    Rams fans are looking to the future ., not the past.

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Should we do this with every pick we pass up?

    Exactly, looking to the future not the past. BUT, the past does illustrate we are absolutely horrible with our draft selections. Over the past 5 -10 years, how many players that the Rams drafted actually made a mark on the team?
    Less then a handful......Who sticks out like Desean?


    So, for the future, everyone has their bet's that Devaney is the man and this is all behind us. Hope so. We will know shortly.

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Not to keep this thread alive but I'd be interested to see (considering its the WCO) what Avery can do when he's given the exact same routes as Jackson. Make Avery do the long routes, right? That's what we drafted him for, right? Let's copy exactly what the Eagles are doing with a speedy/short receiver. DeSean is a whole hell of a lot more talented but I bet Avery would do better in copying Jackson's role...

    I'm not ready to give up on Avery yet. He had Finnegan beat by 5 yards TWICE in the first quarter yesterday. Once Null underthrew him, second time never even saw him.

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    The argument is so tired. As are all arguments of this type, each situation is NOT the same ...

    Avery has had 3 yards or more on a DB running wide open down field at least a dozen times this season ...

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Well i'l give it to Desean Jackson he can probably dance better than Avery did you see him do the reject in the endzone.

    Also ask yourself who is a better redzone threat and if Desean Jackson were on the Rams do you think Bulger could have thrown it past 20 yards or Boll er throw it 15 yards with accuracy?

    Got nothing else to talk about sorry guys. I'd rather beat a dead horse than talk about the sorry state of our team

    Like many have said, 2 different teams and 2 different playbooks, 2 different quarterbacks, and 2 different teams....

    Re: Avery vs. Jackson revisited...

    Its all about the situation. Say Philly picks Avery. He has stable coaching, a proven system that would help utilize his talents, a freaking awesome QB, and a FO dedicated to getting to the playoffs right from the get go. I'd assume based on this Avery would succeed better than he is right now.

    However, this is pretty much the exact opposite situation Avery has been put in and it shows. Now with that said I think Jackson is the more talented WR, but I'm not willing to give up on Avery. He just needs more stability methinks.
