    Three Big Ifs and a bold prediction

    IF

    1) we get kris jenkins
    2) Jenkins and the rest of the rams make it through the season healthy (every team gets injuries, but if we avoid key injuries) and
    3) if we consistently score tds in the red zone

    WE ARE GOING TO WIN THE SUPERBOWL

    I really believe that. I know that we arent going to give up the 13th pick for jenkins. Thus, if we get jenkins, plus add an impact player on defense at 13, i think we will be plenty improved enough on defense given how fantastic i believe that our offense is going to be.

    Injuries are always the wild card. If i was going to throw a fourth IF into the list, it would have been consistent offensive line play, but i figure that if we dont get consistent offensive line play, we arent going to score tds in the red zone consistently anyway. TD's in the red zone are so critical for the rams because our ability to convert those opportunities is going to take that much more pressure off the defense by changing the other teams game plans.

    You can tell that tx is really convincing me that now is the time to grab for a title and give up good stuff for jenkins. He is far better than anyone else we are going to get right now in the draft and the offense really does look good enough to win a title. I for one am prepared to mortgage some of the future to get that done. A #3 is easy, i am prepared to do that, and i may be prepared to give up a #2 if the rams are convinced that the guy is healthy and in decent shape. Is that aggressive? Sure. BUt he is a probowl defensive tackle and that is exactly what the rams need.

    Uhh ... could I have some of your coolaid?? I,m really thirsty !!

    Thirsty for a division title and playoff run that is ... I think you are right about acquiring Jenkins. If we get him for a 3rd, we would be ahead of the game .. question is: do we have to outbid Denver? Denver selects #6 overall in round three -- we pick at 19 overall in the 3rd.

    Re: Three Big Ifs and a bold prediction

    I would like to have a healthy and game ready Jenkins. He can add the power and bulk in the middle that the Rams need.

    However, I believe we can make a run at the SuperBowl with or without Jenkins.

    I do agree the Rams need to stay healthy and be more than effective in the RED ZONE....

    I think now is the time to make our run, we can't be in "rebuilding mode" every single year!

    Give me a swig of that cool aid cause I'm with you GC :r

    Count me in! My brother lives 20 minutes from University of Phoenix Stadium and we've already agreed we're there in February 2008! Would that make for the ultimate Bash or what??

    If we get to the big dance, we all need to chip in and buy dez a round trip ticket from HaggisTown so he can get to the game to support the squad.

    Re: Three Big Ifs and a bold prediction

    One nice thing about this next year is that we're truly under the radar, virtually everything I read about the schedules and the teams have nothing to do with us whatsoever, so that is one thing that can actually help us, we have virtually no pressure. We'll come out as one of those "surprise" teams (as if people didn't know that we have an explosive offense) if we can get our act together defensively. Who knows, it's a new season of football, anything can happen in those 16 weeks...

    We have the offense, but I honestly feel Jenkins is the key. Him and Sofli have great history, and I honestly think he would like playing for Haslett. Without Jenkins though, it's a pipedream.

    I agree to an extent, but it looks like (if you go into premier forum, I posted an updated rumor report on Jenkins) we'll need to give up more in order to get him, and it might be too much in the eyes of Linehan & Co.

    I agree Tx that Jenkins could be a key. He's a pretty hot topic in the media now and everything I've read points toward it being a mistake for Carolina to let him go. I'm leaning to taking a chance by offering a second (if he's in shape), getting this thing done and hopefully giving us a fighting chance at making the big dance.

    Re: Three Big Ifs and a bold prediction

    I agree with all those 3 "BIG IF'S...we are going to have a top 5 offense next year..probably the best offense in the NFC hands down. Drew Bennett and RAndy McMichael are gonna help us in the RED ZONE...Steven Jackson is gonna lead the NFC in rushing this season because of our 3 WR sets getting so much respect and attention. If we land Kris Jenkins that will instantly make us Superbowl Contenders...with that Jenkins addition we should go after Patrick Willis at LB if he is still available at #13..if not I think we should take a reach and snatch up Reggie Nelson from FS to help Corey Chavious. Otogowe is a decent tackler but he is not a cover safety or a playmaker. Nelson would give us that dynamic playmaker that we so desperately need. Overall our 2007-2008 season is looking very positive. Hopefully we can score some red zone TD's this year and not settle for 3 after these 10 plus play drives..that **** drove me crazy last year. We let at least 4 games go down the drain just off that fact alone. GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Three Big Ifs and a bold prediction

    i am with you GC on everything, i have no problem giving up that #2 pick for Jenkins providing everything checks out well with him,i also feel that this could be a special season if that defense can play even a little better, a key stop here and there and put that offense back on the field, keep Bulger upright and i think we end up in the super bowl.
