    patience dear..just because Billy D and Spags hasn`t broadcasted it to the world..doesn`t mean theres nothing in the pipeline and our roster is set.

    Re: Rams claim S Smith, DT Ramsey on waivers

    Well for me, I'm not too sure about the pickup in Smith. After watching the video posted, seeing Smith high step and Cowher has to have a word with him, it tells me the guy goes for the big play, not a team player, and is undisciplined. The guy tried to pick a fight with Tom Brady, a Quarterback. However, I can see a motive for why they brought him in. Smith can fit in and be a factor on special teams which would only require his natural hitting ability. Although I'm not in favor of Smith, I'll have an open mind about it because if what Packers fans were saying is true, then picking up Smith may not have been such a bad idea.

    And well, we don't even need to talk about how big a baby he was during his days in Tampa. Ask any Tampa fan about Baby Garcia, they'll give you the info ....
    Garcia never compained in philly about being a backup, when he came to oakland he said "he didn't come here to be a backup", and in tampa he and gruden obviously hated eachother and had problems...I don't need to ask any Tampa fan anything I follow the game of football and I'm very aware of Garcia's career. You can't blame the guy for complaining once and a while he has built a decent resume in his time in the nfl, and he has confidence in what he can do.

    None of these situations IMO are worthy of calling him a "DIVA". A crybaby maybe but not a diva.

    We picked up two players.

    I don't think Spags and Devaney would've picked either of them up if they really thought they'd cause problems.

    Never said that they would cause problems, I'm actually all for the Ramsey pick up, but I'm questioning the extra S until we address our RB and WR issues, however hopefully it'll all work out in the end.

    Yeah I hear ya. I bet if Reggie Brown was cut we would have snagged him, hopefully they are trying to pick him up through a trade. As for our backup running back, I wonder how long Gado needs to be sidelined, perhaps it's not as bad as we thought... I could live with Darby backing up Jackson for a few games and have Gado return.

    So you are saying he had a bad game. You are not saying you have been following this guy close and know for a fact he has no ball skills or you read that he has stunk it up this preseason. Ok I think I will give the nod to the Rams front office.

    You pick up the best players as they come available not in an predetermined order.

    How about the need for ST players?

    When you question his ball skills and his ability to still produce, it sounds like you're mad at the pick-up. Regardless, Spags sees something in him and obviously feels it's an area of need. If I'm not mistaken, before adding Smith, the only SS on the roster was James Butler. Surely you can see a need for depth at that position.
