    Does anyone think it's weird...

    How Fisher and Snead have almost always sidestepped questions about Jake Long's recovery this off season? Not only is it weird, but it sounds calculated. Whether the progress is good or bad they don't seem to want to let us know. We have pretty much got "he is currently behind Sam" just because of the timeline from when he was injured. I remember at Saffold's press conference they asked Fisher about Sam and he was gushing about where he's at. They ask him about Jake and all you hear is "Jake's doing fine." Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but if it isn't done to misconstrue anything draft-related then all I can take from is it he must not be doing well. I'll go with the former.

    I know we don't always allow links, but here's an audio clip of a Snead interview he just did the other day:

    Les Snead Interview

    Fast forward to 1:05. The interviewer asks Snead about Bradford and Long's recovery process and then Snead goes off on a tangent about Sam then just stops. So the reporter follows up again and asks about Jake since Snead glossed over him. There has to be a method to their madness here.

    Or maybe I'm just losing it.

    It's possible that Jake Long's recovery isn't going well. It's also possible they want to make other teams think the recovery isn't going well and they are in the market for an OT in the draft. Only Snead and Fisher really know, and whoever else at Rams Park who is in on the gameplan.

    Whether Jake Long's recovery is going well or not going well is directly tied to the Rams' draft plans. I'm not sure why anyone would expect him to answer a question like that with the draft so close.

    Yep, same thing I was thinking. I'm sure they're very deliberate with what they're saying.

    Re: Does anyone think it's weird...

    Saw Fisher being interviewed I believe after A & M's pro day. One question was that was it safe to assume that offense line will be a high priority. Fisher said you assume that we didn't. With Saffold back and Jake coming back from surgery we are looking good. You can tell he was being super careful with word choice, obviously.

    He aid the Jake was coming back, but didn't mention anything about time table, but that he wanted to make the statement that we could go anywhere or do anything so teams if you want that player, you best pull the trigger, which again is an obvious chess move.

    Precisely, which is why I've said that if we draft an OT early it's a signal that the rehab may not be going as well as hoped. Our OL needs are more on the interior than at OT. Even taking Lewan at #13 sends a message in my mind.

    Go Rams!

    I think a lot of people are reading into things way too much.

    I've heard Fisher several times say that Long should be back by the openeer.

    I doubt if the doctors give Fisher daily reports on Long.

    No, he said "reading". It's clearly something to do with his eyes!

    Oh my Lord he's been stricken with blindness.

    No, I'm saying that nobody who has made a comment is a doctor, rehab specialist in charge of assisting Long, or psychic.
