    Re: Most Disappointing Ram Thus Far?

    i voted for Saffold only because he wass on his way to a pro-bowl season

    However if the option was there i would just give it to the enitre offensive line starters and depth guys. Our O-line was one our strengths coming for them to struggle the way they have is just astonishing. The addition of Dahl seemed like all we needed for a dominating O-line

    It was a toss up between Saffold and Smith. The whole OL has been one big dissapointment, really. The talent, tools, and pontential is there in spades, just not the execution and heart... that's what makes them most disappointing.

    Jason Smith thus far, but I'll reserve my judgment until the O-line can get their act together because I'll give the mulligan for being designed to run Shurmur's offense to see how they transition into McD's offense.

    Too many to name but for me it's Lance Kendricks... I thought he would have a huge rookie year in this offense. If he was catching the ball better who knows what our record would be. Just shocked that he drops the ball so often.

    I really cant claim to be paying enough attention to the new players this year, but I was expecting some big plays out of Kendricks and all I ever see him do is drop the ball.

    I am impressed that Sam Bradford has stayed in the game, stayed composed, and has handled being hit and hurried so often. He has my respect.

    Bradford needs a reliable TE to bail him out. For a high draft pick Kindricks 'Busting' at the seams. Wake up Rook!

    Re: Most Disappointing Ram Thus Far?

    I too am disappointed in Kendricks, but you can't be a bust after four nfl games. Smith on the other hand was the #2 OVERALL pick in the draft. From a disappointment standpoint, expectations are a big part of the analysis. The expectations for the #2 overall pick in the draft, with his cap impact, is a major impact player. Smith is not really a functional starter, let alone a major impact player. Saffold, in his defense, is playing the harder position and was picked at the top of the second round, thus, to me, cant be as big a disappointment as Smith.

    I acknowledge that to some degree, given how ineffective both of them have been, that this analysis is a little bit like calling Saffold the world's tallest midget. The bar for being better than Smith at this point is incredibly low.

    Ramming speed to all

    Re: Most Disappointing Ram Thus Far?

    My vote is for MSW.

    Why? He's a guy who many believed was a former pro bowl caliber WR, who was put in the perfect position to be a #1 WR for our team & receive a huge pay day if he performed.....major disappointment, but for a small price tag it would hurt when we cut him loose at the end of the year.

    No he isn't. In his best season, in 2009, he was 17th in the AFC in receptions, joint 9th in the AFC in TDs, and 13th in the AFC in yards. He has never made the pro bowl.
    And to be honest, i don't know how anyone could have expected him to be our no. 1 WR. He was the number 1 WR on a bad Jags team by default, and even they didn't want to keep him. And i guess we can see why by the number of drops he has had

    I apologize, I left out a few words there(I corrected my post), but many individuals thought that he would be the answer at WR...sadly the search continues.

    Re: Most Disappointing Ram Thus Far?

    It has to be Jason Smith based on the potential talked about prior to the draft and the fact that we took him with the #2 pick. His downfall began when he was shifted to right tackle from left tackle and now he's not even performing at that spot. I keep thinking that perhaps the problem is with Steve Loney the OL coach, but for now JS has to play better to keep his starting spot. What a sad commentary on the whole team at this point in a season that had such high expectations. Let's hope we can reverse the trend soon.

    Go Rams!
