    Separating the baby from the bathwater

    This is my current view of things. It is subject to change.

    The Rams need to make a lot of changes. To do so, they must separate "the baby" (things to keep) from "the bathwater" (things to be flushed).

    Sam Bradford: baby
    A.J. Feelet: bathwater

    Steven Jackson: baby
    Rest of RBs: bathwater

    Brandon Lloyd, Greg Salas, Austin Pettis: baby
    Rest of WRs: bathwater

    Rodger Saffold, Harvey Dahl: baby
    Rest of OL: bathwater

    Lance Kendricks: baby
    Rest of TEs: bathwater

    DEs: baby
    DTs: bathwater

    James Laurinaitis: baby
    Rest of LBs: bathwater

    Bartell, Fletcher, Murphy (if healthy): baby
    Fill-in CBs: bathwater

    Mikell, Stewart: baby
    Rest of safeties: bathwater

    Kevin Demoff: baby
    Rest of coaching staff and front office: bathwater

    Don't like the ditching of Feeley.

    Also think Josh Gordy has earn't himself another season or two

    Other than that I agree with all of it.

    Don't get why Feeley is even mentioned. He's a back-up. The Rams need a back-up and the Rams could do worse than him.

    If possible, I'd probably keep Clayton Lopez and Andre Curtis. I don't know if it's from there hand or not, but it's hard to punish the Secondary coaches who have lost 10 players to IR and still have the 9th ranked pass D.

    Yes, I know that teams don't "have" to pass on the 32nd ranked run D, but still.

    You have to keep Kevin Demoff so he can keep up the quirky act of making all the rookies signing bonuses palindromes

    Sam Bradford agree

    Lance Kendricks agree
    DEs: baby next year Quinn needs to be a starter period.
    James Laurinaitis agree
    Bartell, Fletcher, Murphy agree
    Mikell, Stewart agree
    Kevin Demoff not sure... but yeah agree the rest must go.


    Needs

    LB
    DT
    WR
    CB
    C
    OG
    LT

    I think I agree with everything AV said -- I think most people should be in 90% agree -- the application of how to fix will be the disagreement

    Agree for the most part, we should keep Amendolla and Gordy though in my opinion. Gordy has played pretty good for just coming in, and Amendolla is the best safety net there is.
