    The problem being, the Rams don't use a base 3-4 alignment. They run a base 4-3, where Long should play his natural 4-3 End position. A 4-3 SAM doesn't rush the passer as much as a 3-4 OLB or a 4-3 End. A 4-3 SAM is going to contain the outside gap, and jam the TE on the line, but it doesn't really play to the disruptive nature of Long's game. He needs to be on the line in the 4-3 or off the edge in a 3-4, not just soaking up TEs as a 4-3 SAM.

    Speed doesn't make Avery good, it makes him fast. Speed doesn't mean a thing if he can't catch a cold. He also played in a passing system that rivals Hawaii and Texas Tech.

    Al Davis you should love this pick, we got the second fastest receiver in the draft.

    None of the receivers in the draft could run routes, they all sucked at it. As far as all the experts saying that's where Avery should of gone...that's crap. Not one of them had him going there. I wish the Linehan would make up his mind about his offense. First it was no more 3-4 WR sets, there's a lot more 2 TE sets. Bye Bye GSOT. Now we're trying to bring it back?

    Al Saunders is now the guy calling the shots on offense. If you have a problem, it would be with him, not Linehan.

    Oh really? I could have sworn Linehan was the Head coach, and still should be the one running the show.

    I'm pretty sure the offense has been handed over to Saunders.
