    Let's Play Hadley Hearsay! (on LB plans)

    From another board:

    Last night on the Big Sports Show on KTRS Hadley mentioned this. He said he couldn't mention any names yet, but that Ram fans would be 'shocked' by what the Rams are trying to do / who they are trying to get. And I think he meant shocked in a positive sense. He did say the Rams are tring to get an ILB and an OLB, one via FA signing and one via a trade.

    Now, we all know that Hadley is a complete blowhard who likes to predict things so that in the few occasions when he is right he can then claim to be an "insider," so take this with a big grain of salt.

    That said -- its the offseason and we're all anxious for real news, so... let the speculation begin!

    I wouldn't be surprised if Cowart was the one via trade, since he's actually expressed interest in being traded from the Jets.

    Also keep your eye on Chiefs RFA LB Scott Fujita, who would cost us only fifth round compensation if we make him an offer and the Chiefs declined.

    How about Hartwell and London Fletcher?


    Oops! I shouldn't have posted that. Now Tx is going to have to change his shorts!

    i'd be shocked if the rams FO trade o. pace for the 40whiner's j. peterson olb... :confused:

    i'd be elated if the rams FO trade the 1st pick for urlacher...

    i'd be out of my mind if the rams FO trade the 1st pick for s. cowart... :mask:

    If that would happen, I wouldn't care if I missed every offensive play this year.

    Here's some more shockers from Hadley:
    1. The Rams will try to get help at their O-line through free agency, the draft or trade.
    2. Tony Banks will NOT be the starting QB this season.
    3. The earth will continue to spin.
    4. Orlando Pace is going to ask for a lot of money.

    I mean of course we're going to do something with our LBs, especially considering the move of Pisa. This is a no-brainer, there has to be new personnel in the LB corp, we have no choice.

    5. Lasagna is good with a side order of more.

    Some people were saying that about RT when Ryan PlumbTuckeredOut almost got KW sacked before he got The Pass off. But The-Powers-That-Be let KW be injured into history's footnote before they made a move for Turley.

    It has been obvious that MLB has been an issue since Jamie DunkinDonut acted like a blocking dummy. I'm not holding my breath that the FO knows how to fix it yet. And now you have Marmelade helping to select personnel after the fine job he did in Arizona.

    I'm am steeling myself to be poked in the eye with a blunt stick again.

    I can't wait until March 2nd so we can finally start making deals.

    Also, Hadley is full of it. He states the most general statements and twists them into something Rams fans want to hear.

    Oh yeah? We're trying to get a LB through FA or trade? You don't say. I'm sure we tried to do the same last year.

    Everyone should get 11/29 in the slammer for even whispering to me that there is even a remote, miniscule possibility that the Rams could get London Fletcher back.

    :tongue:

    You are killing me adarian....I can't take it.

    I can't believe Marmie is still here and now he probably is involved in personnel decisions. What is going to happen to this defense?
    I am afraid to watch.

    Sounds like the whole "you'd be shocked" thing does have to do with the interest in London Fletcher, but I hope they don't get him. He left in his prime and would be coming back in his twilight. That's no good. Plus he's too small, as someone else mentioned.

    And he speaks of a trade? That's interesting. Who would we trade for a LB? Perhaps Pace for a LB and a decent body at OT?

    Or Marshall in a sign and trade deal?

    Feb. 15 - Hadley: "Something big's going to happen!


    Mar. 15 - Something big happens - Hadley: "See, I told you!"

    Of course, Hadley never said what the big thing was, so nobody knows if the the thing that happened was the thing he predicted.

    And that is precisely his point.
