    Rams offense is looking like it will have a major makeover

    Looking at this list of players that had a huge role last year, some if not all look to be gone soon.

    From opening day last year, all of the starting receivers may be as good as gone. Our starting RB looks to be gone. The O line will not look the same as it did on opening day as well.

    Last year Fisher came in and blew up the defense, only four starters returned. This year it's clear he will remodel the offense.


    Steven Jackson

    Steve Smith

    Danny Amendola

    Brandon Gibson

    Barry Richardson

    Quinn Ojinnaka

    Wayne Hunter

    Robert Turner

    Good. It's about time we shed that horrificly slow offense we used to have. That starts with Givens and Pead. Let's go get some guys that'll turn this offense into a top 10 like our D.

    I think Finnegan was on to something when he said they're not "rebuilding", they're "reloading"

    If Fisher and Snead can have the same success reloading the offense this offseason as they did reloading the defense last offseason, the gold diggers and shehawks better watch out.

    As much as I love Jackson, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to finally see a heavy dose of speed and quickness coming out of the backfield. Jackson's downhill running style is awesome, but I'm ready for a higher potential of running backs breaking long TD runs. Jackson lacked the top end speed to break away. We've all seen how one long TD run can completely change the course of a game(AP anyone?).

    Exactly my sentiments. Can't wait to see Shade in the backfield (my nickname for Pead). He's got the ability to break HUGE runs ala LeSean McCoy.

    For sure. I think people are really going to underestimate Pead after last season. I tend to think differently than those who believe he isn't worth the 2nd round pick because the lack of production.

    The way I see it, he was already a step behind Richardson because of Cincy's quarter system. When we all learned Richardson nailed the lead backup role, we kind of portayed the situation as Pead underperforming. It turned out that Richardson was a gem and actually played really well. We already know the Rams were preparing for the probability of Jackson departing(giving him the choice to void his contract at the end of the year). This is obviously pure speculation, but maybe with Richardson playing so well, they decided to slowly ease Pead in. He honestly wasn't necessary last year with Jackson/Richardson playing at the level they were. He will be fresh this year, he wont have the rookie jitters, and should have the playbook memorized.

    Talk about a speed upgrade

    Steve Smith vs Givens
    Steven Jackson vs Pead
    Danny Amendola vs Tavon Austin
    Brandon Gibson vs Quick

    The Rams could line up a much fast and explosive team for sure,

    Rams fact of the day: other than Bradford, the Rams have 23 offensive players under contract for a total cap hit of $24M. The entire offense other than Sam Bradford costs us less than Long and Finnegan alone. We need some freaking talent on offense!

    Re: Rams offense is looking like it will have a major makeover

    Like most of you guys on this thread I am excited to see a new offense get on the field this season! I believe this years draft could be very exciting for us on the offensive side of the ball especially...

    Hey, You guys don't forget about Richardson ... thought he had several amazing runs early on.

    Pead Racer .... might be the greatest name ever. Who said that?

    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

    Totally agree. It's nice to know the Rams have a good fall back option, if Pead doesn't pan out. I think between the two players, the Rams FO will be very confident moving forward at the RB position. It's the receivers where I have my doubts at the moment.? In saying that, its still very early days in the offseason. Its all this apprehension it's just killing me.

    I threw Pead Racer out there, and thanks man, I'm glad you like it.

    I'm also looking forward to the track meet next season. I'm also very curious to see what Ganaway brings to the table (besides Jimmy John's of course).

    Yeah well he better take the shade off the lamp so he can study and learn the playbook.
