    "We're happy with our WRs"

    Does anyone remember the thread from the guy on this board who met Devaney at a wedding?

    Remember Devaney wondering why the Rams fans were concerned with the WR core?

    Yeesh. Hello Front Office, meet reality.

    Well of course he is not going to say "The group we have is horrible, dont expect any improvment."

    The WRs played well against the Pats, and it was only an injury to Donnie Avery that changes the situation.

    Any team losing their number 1 WR will change the shape of the WR corps immensely

    I don't understand how one day people can be saying our wide receivers suck, and then the next day say how devastating an injury to one of them will be to the team.

    I think the injury to Avery is a significant bump, especially with week 1 so close. But did you really expect Avery to last a full season without an injury? The Rams are not extremely talented at that position, but they are very deep. They'll be fine.

    I'm sure that the Cards, Pats, Dolphins, and Lions all are happy with their WR corps, but would be devastated to injuries to Fitzy, Moss, Marshall and Megatron.

    Avery is not an all-pro WR, so even though he's our #1 receiver, his being out for the year is not nearly as bad of a hit as if another team like those above lost their #1. Besides, Robinson was looking great before his freak injury last year on a running play. I think he's the real #1 guy out there. Sam and the offense will be fine.
    I believe!

    I agree. I don't think we will have a star receiver racking up over a 100 yards per game but I do think we will have between 200 and 300 receiving yards per game.

    Maybe Bradford's nickname will be Socialist Sam because he will spread the wealth around.

    While it is true that we have a lot of guys, i dont think that any of them qualify as a deep threat to stretch the field.

    ramming speed to all

    To me, depth has nothing to do with this. I care how many good receivers we have on the field, not how many OK receivers we have riding pine and working with Null on the practice squad. I'll take a couple of Corvettes over a car lot full of Yugos any day.


    Right now we have 2 decent receivers, Robinson and Amendola. Neither are great (yet) but they contribute. We need someone who is lightening quick, has decent hands, an doesn't have rubber band knees. We don't have that now anywhere on our deep roster. The other guys are fine to keep in the pipeline and see how they develop over the next year or so, but in the meantime, if we want to win games, we need someone for Bradford to throw downfield to.

    Sorry, rant complete.

    I'm a pro-Avery guy but I wouldn't trade his loss for that of anyone on the OL or a number of other key players on this team.

    Re: "We're happy with our WRs"

    what I am trying to figure out is this... did the rams have a good passing game last year? so what are we basing our thoughts on? does losing a receiver from last year really have that much of an impact ... the rams now have the potential of a brand new qb and several receivers ... who really have not played one real nfl game. the reality is that only the coaching staff has a clue up to this point after watching the players very very close in real time and on film for the past several weeks. and unlike all of us... unless some are laying down some heavy bets... the coaching staffs jobs are on the line be it either short or long term.

    You want to trade what will most likely be a top 10 draft pick for a borderline top 15 receiver?

    Rams situation

    we dont have a #1 reciever ... we didnt have one when Avery was healthy either btw

    so yeah i would ... Bradford needs reliable targets otherwise Bradfords gonna stay in that pocket that much longer, and take that many more hits. VJ stills young and can provide the rams with a bonafide #1 reciever which we dont have.

    it dont have to be just VJ, the rams could get a 3-4 round pick as well, high draft picks are lovely to have, and if they scale the rookie wages it might be that much better, but id take something proven and in his prime than shelling out millions on a college prospect. i've never been high on the top 10 draft picks, coz the good prospects cost more than proven nfl players ... whats the incentive?

    So yeah, i would take VJ in a heart beat. i know Bradford would as well.

    With his off-the-field issues, that he ain't worth a potential high 1st round pick. Holmes got traded for a 5th rounder for alleged pot smoking. Yes I would take V-Jax in a heartbeat, but at what cost? Can he handle losing if we don't make the consistencies? Or will he be a cancer to the locker room just like how Haynesworth is doing with the 'Skins despite his ridiculous contract?

    Jesus guys easy...you act like this dashes our superbowl hopes or something... we are still a long way out relax...if Robinson and/or Gibson don't show significant improvement this year expect the rams to use their 1-15 draft position and take A.J. Green or Julio Jones...problem solved.
