    It isn't sound logic, and just like Kevin Kolb had intangibles that the other system quartbacks did not have, Sam Bradford has the accuracy and arm that other Oklahoma quarterbacks did not have.

    To whoever knocked the Tyler guy.. he can't type very well, and doesn't punctuate, and isn't very well spoken, but cut the guy some slack instead of just knocking on him and ignoring his point.
    Actually the college system argument is valid, because the styles of playing college football and NFL football are different enough for this to be a factor.

    Explain to me the tangible differences between Jason White, Josh Heupel, and Sam Bradford.

    Re: The QB argument

    Jason Smith- Franchise Tackle
    Bell- Above average guard
    Jason Brown- Pro Bowl Center
    Grecco/Goldberg- solid guards especially goldberg who is a pretty good guard
    Barron (RFA probably brought back) Only average week point on the line could be upgraded

    Our O-line wasn't healthy last year doesn't mean it isn't good. IMO if we stay healthy best line in the division with Bell and Goldberg at the guards smith at center Barron and Smith at tackle. So I'm not buying that argument that the o-line isn't good enough.

    Amendola- Decent slot good returner
    Gibson- Solid complimentary receiver
    Robinson- Good size speed hands needs to stay healthy and could be a good number 2 receiver
    Avery- Speed and inconsistent hands. 6 TDs he has playmaking skills. He isn't a number 1 but cut the role down and he could be a Devery Henderson type of player.
    TE- Nothing really. Bajema good blocker and nice number 2 TE.

    Weapons the complimentary and role playing receivers are there in excess. The group is young and talented, but is clearly lacking a clear cut number 1 receiver. Add that guy to this group and the others could excel in their newly acquired role. TE definately needs a young athletic pass catcher. This draft is stacked and trades and FA offer some options. IMO we should be going after a WR with our second round pick and look to upgrade TE through FA or trade. We may not have a full arsenal of weapons now, but we could in the near future.

    IMO the Rams are in perfect position to draft a guy like Sam Bradford or Jimmy Claussen. In 2 years as that QB and the young guys around him develop you could be looking at an incredibly talented offensive team.

    Re: The QB argument

    Above Average Guards don't spend entire seasons as human wastelands, and Bell was one in 2008.

    Grecco and Goldberg are servicable, nothing more than that.

    Barron is an absolute liability/borderline human wasteland as well.

    Our receivers still need to mature. En masse.

    Bell gave up 1 sack in 2009. Who cares about 2008 he improved leaps and bounds in 2009. Why the heck would you evaluate him on 2 years ago when you know what he did just this season.

    Goldberg was more than solid at RG when he played there he is good run blocker and his weakness in pass protection is covered up on the inside. Grecco has what 3 career starts how can you evaluate him. Barron serviceable barely average you could upgrade him, I won't argue too much in his favor. We have a question at 1 of the tackle spots and thats it IMO.

    Re: The QB argument

    I evaluate him on two years ago because in the middle of his career he was the statistically worst starter at his position in the NFL. If he did it before, he could do it again. Shoot-for all we know he would have had another bad year this season had there not been even larger holes elsewhere on the line to exploit.
