    The Bernie on Gordon

    I don't like the Gordon deal....

    I'm told there was a difference of opinion in the organization.

    I don't think Martz was crazy about making this deal.

    I don't get it. Faulk is on the downside, Jackson (who looks outstanding) had knee surgery last offseason. Suppose Faulk goes down? Can a rookie get it done all year? Suppose Jackson has knee problems? I know Arlen Harris is here, and he's a tough kid, but he lacks speed.

    Now, if they had traded Gordon for a starting-caliber CB or DT, then I'd feel differently.

    Gordon will have a huge season for the Dolphins as long as he can stay healthy. And if he has a huge season, the Rams should have insured themselves to get an agreement on a better draft choice from the Dolphins.

    Cheers,
    Bernie

    ---------

    Seems to be a lot of turmoil -- or maybe restlessness is a better word -- concerning the roster. The Rams aren't usually this desperate to be adding players right before a season.

    And it's curious -- with all of this roster shuffling -- why we haven't seen a CB or DT enter the doors at Rams Park.

    Thankfully, Sehorn flunked that physical. I have no idea what they saw in him.

    Cheers,
    Bernie

    Oh, somehow someway this will turn out to be a Martz mistake. Always is.

    Not so sure about an outstanding season, hope so for Gordon's sake. Nah, don't really care anymore. He's an ex Ram like the rest of them.

    I couldn't be happier that Sehorn failed. I could cover a receiver better, but he's got a helluva wife.

    I don't mind the Gordon deal. He was put pretty far down the depth chart. He was a 3rd rounder and we are getting a 3rd rounder, so it seems pretty straight up. Maybe in the draft we can use it to shore up the DB situation and OL situation.

    I think we can put this one safely to bed. Jackson has shown more promise than Gordon ever did. Keeping Gordon on the roster would have ensured him still not having a break-out season. Maybe he has one for Miami. Doesn't matter about the what-ifs. A high 3rd rounder is fine ...

    Of course if sMartz gets both Faulk and Jackson injured by playing them in the last minutes of a blow-out ... well, let's just wait and see shall we ...

    Re: The Bernie on Gordon

    We should have got some DT or CB for Gordon.

    What good is a future 3rd round pick compared to a 3rd round pick that already knows your system and is a decent back-up?

    My only thought is that we made some cap space by doing this, which is how we got some of these last minute players signed...

    You can't blame Martz for this one everyone.

    You can look at depth at any position on any team and raise questions like this. It's easy to "suppose" anything. There's no reason to whine about this trade with the guys we have at running back. Lamar Gordon is more injury-prone than Jackson and Harris and often experiences a case of fumblitis. We were overloaded at the position to the point of moving Harris to fullback just to get him playing time. Now the depth chart is set. Faulk-Jackson-Harris sounds damn good to me.
