    Do you expect he will lead the rams to a winning season this year?
    Ya you're right, lets go back to DRich.

    Zac was hurt at the end of the game last week.

    It's a team sport.

    We are better so far with Zac, than we have been with DRich and company. So what's the problem? He is our best option, he is not above criticism.

    It looks like nitpicking, just for the sake of nitpicking to me.

    You're comparing Stacy to a HOF running back the likes of Eric Dickerson?

    Some fans can never acknowledge the positives, even with a rookie running back that is performing above and beyond everyone else on the team.

    What are you going to complain about next? Robbert Quinn, for not being a very good DE because you remember Jack Youngblood having 18 sacks in a season while doing it with a broken leg?

    I think Pead should start. Time to bench Stacy. He is a slacker

    LOL!

    Another bright spot on a losing team that is most likely headed for another losing season! How many straight losing seasons will that be?

    Every year the rams seem to have a young player that comes forward as a bright spot. Where has that led them? To another losing season!

    How many high draft picks does this defense have? Haven't all of them had their moments? Don't they all have their games? But where has that got the rams? Yeah, that's right, another losing season. When collectively are they going to put it together and produce a winning season? WHEN?!?

    Now the offense has their latest bright spot. Yeah he's a bright spot but we are once again in the midst of another losing season. Its great that bright spots can continue to keep you guys happy as fans while the rams continue to lose. I on the other hand want a winning season. I've seen enough bright spots year after year. When the hell are we going to see a TEAM that is a bright spot? WHEN?

    I am with you on the frustration sentiment. We will have another high draft choice.....most likely TOP 5 AGAIN...
    But I would argue that is our first/second round picks and FA acquisitions played as well as our 5th round draft pick, we would no longer be a losing team. Just my two cents.

    Why do you think I don't want a winning season? Who said I'm happy? I'm not happy at all, but complaining about a player who is doing a nice job in his rookie year is pointless. The Rams continue to lose, so let's complain about the bright spot on the team? That makes no sense whatsoever.

    You already lost that argument last week. The defense played that way and they still lost!

    And btw mac, it was just my two cents that started this firestorm. I did not say he was a slacker or that we should go back to drich. And if he is a franchise RB as the op suggests (and I'm not saying he is or is not) then he should be expected to play like one. I'm not certain what the big deal is when we just lost another game on the way to a 3-6 record. Its not like it is inspiring this team towards a winning season.

    Regardless the rams are losers amongst you're bright spot! Another losing season for a losing team!

    Once again seattle just found a way to win in OT after being down by 21.

    Really? So based on the way Zak Stacy is playing this season ESPECIALLY his last 2 games. He doesn't look like a franchise RB? All because you THINK he gets tired easily? I'd rather him take breaks than to wear him out completely. Many great RBs sit out for one play to catch their breath and then they are back in. AP does that, SJ39 does that, Marshall Faulk does that, and I'm sure Eric Dickerson wasn't in on every play during his HOF career.

    Last week he injured his ankle which is why he wasn't out for a bit in the end of the 4th quarter.

    We need to draft another RB next year for depth - a guy like Lacy in the 2nd round would be great.

    Needs --

    Get Bradford back
    Draft 2 stud Offensive Lineman
    Draft 1 RB for depth in the 2nd round
    Dump the OC

    depth is nice

    though i do think another receiver would help (NOT IN THE FIRST)

    and i think that WR needs to be a TRUE possession receiver

    Re: I Think We Have Our Franchise RB

    As already mentioned in a few posts here, Stacy was running on a low pressure tire (last week it was almost flat late in the 4th Qtr.). And also mentioned, SZ had a fine, productive game today, a fine game with and without stats!

    Right now this rookie is our highlight reel and one of the Rams honest RB hopes for next year.

    I'm proud of ZMAX and believe in him -- IMO it is quite clear he's shown talent, heart and attitude.
    Please, let's not start looking for the chink in his armor! **SIGH**

    They are double teaming De'Andre tonight which is why Johnson had 1 on 1 coverage and wide open for an easy TD
