    Re: Rams Stock Market: Who's the Biggest Bargain?

    Culberson was my choice. I hope like nothing else he shows as much ability as the coaching staff have suggested he has.

    I went for Jonathan Wade. Tye Hill seems set as our number one CB but Fakhir Brown wasn't entirely convincing last year and there seems a golden opportunity for someone else to come in. Justin King could be that man but Wade looked promising at times last year and, given his incredible speed, could be the one to make it through in 2008.

    I went with Carriker. I agree with jkramsfan, I think with the addition of Long and a healthy Little our d-line is going to be much improved. I see Carriker having a hugh year and making the Pro Bowl.

    I went with Carriker also, for many of the same reasons other people have been saying: return of Little, drafting of Long, emergence of Clifton Ryan. All those things should help Carriker reach the next level of play this year. He had a decent season last year, but I don't think most people around the league noticed him all that much, so in stock market terms his price should still be affordable - even cheap when you look at the potential. Had Clifton Ryan been available I would probably have picked him for all the same reasons and he should be even more of an unknown, being drafted so late, around the league so he would be much cheaper than Carriker with close to the same potential.

    I went with Culberson. His price would be dirt cheap right now, but could skyrocket if he secures the starting SLB spot.

    I see that, thus far, we can't give away stock in Klop, Inc.

    Re: Rams Stock Market: Who's the Biggest Bargain?

    I went with Culberson for the same reason. He's a penny stock right now. I expect him to be at least solid this year if not significant. It's money in the bank. Soon I should be able lay back on a sandy beach somewhere with a drink with an umbrella in it watching the orange laced sunset on a tropical island from my returns off this guy. He's a gamer.

    Re: Rams Stock Market: Who's the Biggest Bargain?

    I find it revealing that no one has selected Joey (The Flop) Klopfenstein to do anything worthwhile this year. Heck now that I think about it, he could very well be cut before this season even starts. I just do not think that Al Saunders is going to put up with this guy for very long, irrespective of what kind of fetish Scoot has for Tight Ends.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Re: Rams Stock Market: Who's the Biggest Bargain?

    My money is on Wade because...
    (a) I expect him to get lots of opportunity to stand out. Klopf probably won't get the chance to show off improvements in his game unless McMichael or Becht goes down. Leonard will largely be seen in a blocking role, which hasn't been flattering to him so far. At the least, Wade will come in for the nickel (say a quarter of defensive snaps or so?) and he gets to step in as a starter if either Hill or Brown goes down (or gets suspended again).

    (b) His stock really is low. I expect Carriker and Incognito to have good seasons, but if this was a fantasy game where values were based on who other people were wanting, I'd expect both to be in moderately high demand. After all, Carriker was a first round pick and looked pretty good for a rookie last year. Cogs has the reputation for playing tough, too. For that matter, with many predicting Culberson to start and crediting his development as the justification for letting Chillar walk, I wouldn't quite call him a penny stock...but he would have been my second choice.

    Barron will have opportunity and probably isn't rated real high right now, either, but I'm not terribly excited by his prospects.

    I went with Culberson, I was really impressed by his game against Arizona last year.
    Si vous croyez en vous, que vous avez de la fierté, et que vous ne lâchez jamais, vous serez un gagnant.
    Le prix de la victoire est chère, mais la récompense en vaut la peine.

    Re: Rams Stock Market: Who's the Biggest Bargain?

    I went with other in Bennett. His stock is low among Rams fans, so could it possibly sink any lower? I'm not saying I think he's great, but I do think he seriously underperformed last year. If he doesn't produce this year are doomed to another miserable season.

    Carriker, for pretty much all the above stated reasons.
