I like this signing.
Future HOFer - check. Better than Calvin Johnson - check. Designs his own plays - check. Calls audibles at the line of scrimmage - check.
What else could you ask for in a WR?
Talent obviously isn't the issue hear because Young has plenty of it.
I just don't understand how anyone couldn't like this move. If he acts like an idiot we cut him. if he doesn't he's probably the most talented receiver on our roster.
Lions fan take
Ink is not even dry on the Titus Young. The Rams picked up a quality Receiver. Shame on the Lions for not even willing to settle with Titus Young.
I watched Titus play live and he has clutch hands and excellent speed. The Rams got a gold mine. Goog luck to Titus. I look forward to Titus coming to Detroit as a Ram. The Rams have a quality QB with the addition of Titus Young to their receiving core, the Rams got a gift. No need to draft a quality receiver when you can welcome a quaility receiver. Titus, sorry things could not work out in Detroit. I hope you find yourself in St. Louis.
The kid can play no doubt about that!
And I really do not see any downside to the move.
Sometimes kids like him just need some fixed boundries and a leader who is in control. Something that I believe Fisher is, to a much higher degree than Schwartz who cannot even control himself. (Nor Suh). And if Young keeps being a fool we will just kick him out no harm done.... I like this move alot!
I heard chris carter say he was drafted by the eagles and was a knucklehead for 2yrs and got cut. Then the vikings picked him up and the rest is history, (8 time pro bowler, HOFer)! Hopefully he can follower the same suite. He is undeniably our #1 reciever if he keeps his nose clean. I see nothinng but positve coming from this. And i like that he thinks he is better than megatron... I hope fisher tells him to PROVE IT!! GO RAMS
Admittedly I am probably coming off a little dramatic. And I don't totally hate the move as it could add a nice weapon to our offense where we desperately need one. I just really think this kid is a jackass and I don't want him screwing anything up.
Interesting pick, I honestly doubt he'll be stupid enough to make the same mistake twice. And that Lions team was a mess in terms of discipline. This should be a low risk, high reward signing.
Upon further review: Imagine for a moment Young lining up on one side of the field and Chris Givens on the other. We send them both on #9 patterns, who is the defense gonna double?
And, if the defense rolls both safetys over the top that leaves Brian Quick and Lance Kendricks working the middle of the field one on one.
This just might be fun if Titus the Turd keeps it together...:<>
WHAT SAY YE?
As I ruminate over this addition, the following thought occurs to me...
What if it was the Seahawks, rather than the Rams, who acquired Young?
To be perfectly honest, I'd probably be predicting doom and gloom, while at the same time dreading the possibility that Young would reach his potential playing for a rival.
So... I guess what I'm saying is... if he's going succeed, I'm glad it will be as a Ram. If he fails, no harm, no foul.
I don't see a downside to this, if he is trouble in camp/preseason we cut him loose. Otherwise we have a player who is definately talented, who just witnessed last year that your coach will sit your ass and make you run stairs no matter how good you were the week before when you step out of line, and who might be crazy but will have to see that we are the only team that claimed him, and if he can't make anything happen here, he won't make it anywhere else in league.
When I saw earlier Young had been let go, I had a feeling that Fisher would make a play for a talent like Young. He is a text book Jeff Fisher signing, with a healthy premium on the talent front. He is a low risk, high reward addition to the roster, and when you factor in Fisher's ability to work with difficult players. I really do like the Rams chances on this signing. Nice work FO.:helmet:
