    Re: Thompson vs Wrotten

    I thought when you Mr Wroten sign a contract to millions of dollars your responsible
    to show up in shape every year, ready to play at a higher level than the year before.

    So far we as rams fans have to give you a failing grade that is a big fat F!!!
    you not only don't put forth enough effort for the millions that you make!!
    The only time you take your JOB seriously is when your contract is coming to a end!!

    So as a Rams fan!! I am all fore finding someone anyone who will take there JOB SERIOUSLY and put forth the effort it takes to be a PRO FOOTBALL PLAYER!
    IF YOU ARE JUST NOW WAKING UP AND TAKING YOUR JOB SERIOUSLY ????
    WHY DON'T YOU JUST QUIT AND LET SOMEONE TAKE YOUR BIG FAT SPOT!

    If we are relying on either one to stop the run this year, the secondary better be ready to tackle.

    Here you go, have at it.

    Profile - Joshua Thompson - DT | ON Networks

    Undersized (height) DT from Auburn, lead the Auburn (major school) defense in tackles, i think it was this year and possibly last, from the DT position. Takes alot of heart and a nonstop motor to do that me thinks. Did I mention he was a powerlifter, so strength shouldn't be a problem.

    also from Scout.com: 2008 NFL Draft - Ranking Defensive Tackles

    "Josh Thompson, DT Auburn
    Ridiculously strong, the three-time Georgia state high school weightlifting champion can hold his own, and a 5-11 and 305 pounds could emerge as a backup nose tackle. A smart, tough player who'll try to work through his limitations, he has the potential to stick on a team if he can show any sort of movement. That could be a problem.

    There's me sticking my neck out
    When I originally was thinking about the DT position, this is the original thought I had. After checking out Josh, I had to step it up a bit.

    Re: Thompson vs Wrotten

    When I think of Wroten as part of the DT rotation, I think of a vacuum. The talk is nice but so far his career is zip. As a result, even an unknown commodity as Thompson holds more hope for me than Wroten does.

    What is this, year four
    He has played two years, this will be his third.

    I guess you don't think Marc is at Rams park working out as reported...

    Re: Thompson vs Wrotten

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say he not only beats out Thompson, but he makes significant gains in the way of his production on the field.

    No more incidents off the field, and becomes a steady part of our D-Line rotation.

    Well said, and that is my belief (and hope) as well.

    Why stop there. Based on past performance couldn't he also throw 35 TDs? Nah, I don't see that either.

    Though I would like to see that limb your claiming come to fruition, the point of this thread was not what I'd like to see, or how much Bulger is working out (can't figure that comment out yet), but that I think he is prime fodder to be beat out by a high motor big heart nobody. I'd like my prediction to be wrong. Hope I am, what do I know. I dread another wasted high pick. I just don't think so. I have the same "idea" about Wroten that I had about Dirt Claude Terrell. Hope I am wrong though.
