    ESPN's Michael Smith on the Rams

    I used to like Michael Smith, but after reading this interview, I am starting to hate him.

    NFL Analyst MICHAEL SMITH

    Exclusively provided by Football Gameplan

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FG Staff: Where does Reggie Bush rank amongst the current NFL running backs?

    Michael Smith: Where does he rank? An exact number? I can tell you that right now he is in the bottom 4th of starting RB's. I won't even talk about the time share backs. I'd take him, right now, over the Giants, Titans, Panthers, Packers, Lions, and Bears backs. He's very exciting in space. It also takes a lot of factors for that to happen. He's not gonna get the tough yards that would qualify him as one of the best backs.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FG Staff: Do you think Russell will ever see the field for the Raiders this season?

    Michael Smith: I think he will. He won't if they are in playoff contention at year's end. Which is not far fetched in their division. You don't want to start a true rookie next year.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FG Staff: Should all the success in Houston be credited to the aquisition of Matt Schaub?


    Michael Smith: A lot of it can. The have a good coach and a great up and coming front seven. But nothing can compare to having a QB who knows what he's doing when he steps on the field. He's got confidence and poise and that makes everyone look better.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FG Staff: What is going on with LT and Steven Jackson?

    Michael Smith: Well, the Rams' offensive line is battered with injuries. Bulger and Jackson are hurt with critical injuries, which drastically limits their effectiveness. LT's problem is not offensive line troubles, but a change in approach on offense.The philosophy has changed and he needs time to adjust.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FG Staff: I know it’s early, but as of now, who’s picking #1 in the draft next season?

    Michael Smith: Between Rams and Vikings. I'm leaning toward the Rams. They might even decide to phone it in soon, it's really early.
    What makes this guy an expert??? Throwing in the towel??? Give me a break...

    According to Wikipedia, this guy is only 28 years old, and I dont even think he played college football. His biggest accomplishment is winning around the horn a few times.

    He has to write about something, maybe he should put on the pads and see what he can do.

    I hate it when sports writers write discouraging columns about a team that is struggling. Gawd, lets us spoil what reputation we have left with some dignity

    I think he's a little ticked about us. He was the FIRST on ESPN to pick us to win the NFC West, and I even remember him one time saying we had a great shot at the NFC Championship and going to the Superbowl.
    Too bad we made him look bad.

    I don't think he's being unrealistic, its a possibility we can be picking first. I guess when you look at how injure prone we have been this year we could come off as a big let down. People around me aren't saying, "sorry lambs" they recognize our bad season is due to injuries.

    Maybe with first round draft negotiations we can trade into some defensive help and some additional linemen which will make a great next year, I CAN WAIT!

    As much as I'd like to be able to claim this was offensive, who is he supposed to pick as the likely worst record? There aren't too many other 0-5 teams out there, and there probably isn't any other team as ravaged by injury.

    I am not offended. Somebody has to be last and it might be us.

    He might be right. I don't see anything that shows me we are going to turn this thing around.

    Re: ESPN's Michael Smith on the Rams

    Honesty is the hardest thing to look at in the mirror. Fantesy is more seductive then truth.

    0-5 is looking really ughly right now. And the Rams pulling a 2006 Titans comeback maybe a fantesy. Right now I haven't seen anything to change my 4-12 perdiction:\, but if I am wrong I hope that this is one of them.
