    in this chat Devaney says he hasnt had any contact with Khan, but a report from Howard Balzer prior to the combine suggests that Devaney had met with Khan.

    Pretty sure this was the JBucks sit down TheRammer was talking about.

    Really cool stuff, very interesting read. Loved his outlook on the old regime

    Barron comment (or lack thereof) was hilarious.

    REALLY excited about Fletcher.

    I have TOTAL faith in this regime. Can't wait for the draft.




    Bill Belichick, Bill Parcells, Jerry Reese, Mickey Loomis, Bill Polian and Kevin Colbert are all guys I would rather have making decisions for the Rams

    Well, since that's never gonna happen we gotta make do w/ what we got. One thing I have learned in the last 40 something years is you can be optimistic or pessimistic. I choose the former. I still say we have the best chance at becoming the 'Rams of old' since Carroll Rosenbloom ... and I've waited a long time.

    I, too, would love to see us select Ryan Mathews, but fear he'll be gone before we get back to him. Probably my favorite back in the class

    Re: Devaney Unplugged

    Don Banks makes a few references to Devaney's comments on SI. Devaney come across very wellfrom what I've read here and elsewhere.

    It's nice to have some credible hope, it's been a while since we've had that.

    Hi Dwight,

    Right there with you and agree 100% !!! Exciting stuff, nowhere to go but up and looks like right people to FINALLY aid in mving this franchise out of the duldrums.

    Javed Best is going to be a great role playing running back in the NFL. Love to see him in the Blue and gold.......

    Re: Devaney Unplugged

    I will assume these Tucker and BBRams guys are legit. That being said, even if Devaney were sitting in my office right now telling me the exact same words I just read, I still wouldn't trust it as far as I could throw it.

    Not saying Devaney is a dishonest man, at least no more dishonest than a top notch poker player.

    Think about it. By telling the truth right now, Devaney (and the Rams) gains...............nothing.

    By telling the truth right now, Devaney (and the Rams) loses..........the following:

    1. leverage with the agent of whomever they declare to select.
    2. leverage with any team considering trading up for a different player.

    Those are two huge losses, if Devaney were to tell the truth. It's poker guys. He's going to say all kinds of stuff just to keep the other franchises and agents guessing.


    It's a great read, and I enjoyed it. But.....grain of salt, folks; grain of salt.

    Re: Devaney Unplugged

    Definitely have to be suspicious about the level of "openness" on display. Not suspicious of Tucker and BBRams, but suspicious about how honest Devaney is being and how much of it is smoke that he knows is going to get back to the 'net. Still, an interesting read.
