  • Ron Bartell and DB questions

    IMO it seemed last year RB was a bright spot on the defense, but this year it seems if a ball is thrown his way its either a 1rst down (pass interference) or a touchdown,(he did have a breakup last game). Does he have an injury or something or am I just so down-troddin on this team I dont notice the good he does. Also other than Fletcher (how serious is his injury, I thought he was lookin pretty good) who do we have that can be a decent corner?
    Thanks for the info ( ahead of time)

    There is no rush by our defensive line. He can be a stud for us if we just applied pressure.

    We have Justin King, Jonathan Wade, and Bradley Fletcher that can compliment him. I'm not sure if they have long-term plans for Quincy Butler, but I think King or Fletcher would be good to compliment Bartell.

      He's been battling through a thigh injury this entire year.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

        Rush + Blitz = Turnovers in Secondary & Good Defensive Play

          let Oj walk ....get pick(s) for him.... upgrade the d line (with spags' expertise) assuming we dont get the number one pick.....2n pick take Eric Berry ...ultimate playmaker...and were set.... most of the dominatiin d line men in this league r from later rounds anyways... Secondary should improve drastically

            i think the secondary is pretty set..the only way i see it changing is possibly a later round corner pick or trading down in the first to pick up berry.

              CB`s are like the QB`s of the D..if each of their lines dont win the battle in the trenches they essentially rowing up river with a toothpick.

              like already said...Bartell has played every snap this year whilst impaired by an injury...personally if i was a Pro Footballer and i was carrying an injury all year..i wouldnt play all year..cause i know that you`ll never get thanked for your efforts but you will have your performances on the field torn apart for it.(not having a go at you Dave..just saying that is the nature of the beast..its happened since Pro Sports began)

              Fletcher has a serious Knee injury...he has torn two muscles in his knee..both have been named on here before so check them out if you interested..cant recall them off the top of my head..but basically,he has had one operation..needs to let that heal..then have a second operation. theres a chance he may never play again..tho i dont know the odds..im thinking he will come back from it someday but may have to change position to FS..where he can avoid all that quick twisting and turning that CB`s do on almost every play.
              that wouldnt be too bad..i think he could become a good FS in time (perhaps take over from Atogwe in two or three years) he certainly has some of the tools needed for the position...and although Atogwe is a playmaker he certainly has flaws to his game in some areas.

                You said most and dominating come in later rounds? Care to prove that. Most D-lineman in later rounds do not dominate and every once in awhile teams will find that RARE Diamond but that is the exception to the rule.

                The team needs OJ (what will be his status next year free agent?) alot more than they need some extra later round pick next year. This team has very limited talent and can not afford to let known talent go for later round picks.

                Go Rams....

                  I think OJ has some holes in his game maybe, but I hope we keep him. Hell I liked Chillar when he was here .I'd just hate to see ANOTHER ram go somewhere else and become a star AGAIN. Ofcourse Bruce would of retired a ram if it where up to me.

                      How do you let OJ walk, AND get picks for him?

                          Bartell was playing with a thigh injury that hurt him for pretty much the entire first half of the season, he's probably still feeling lingering effects right now.

                            First of all, stop saying "lmao". There's nothing to laugh your ass off about.


                            Second of all, Suh is better than any other lineman in this draft. A lot better...

                            Do we really want to draft more middle round players who have to "develop" to eventually become starters? Or, do we get the immediate impact with Suh?

                            Suh is also much better than McCoy...

                            Players from the first round are more likely to succeed than players taken in the second or third round. It is a given. So, would we rather not get Suh, and just settle with a second tier lineman?


                            Plus, you stated that most defensive linemen in this league are from later rounds. Name them.

                            Plus, if there are so many "JEWELS" in the middle rounds, how come most teams don't just trade for 5 extra middle round picks? Why are the first round picks so coveted?

                              That much depth?

                              It seems that they said the same thing when we drafted Kennedy, Carricker, Lewis, and so on. How did that work out for the Rams? Alot more miss in later rounds than hits. Heck the Rams have missed alot in the middle of the 1st round so when a big time prospect comes around then you do the homework and if he's the player everyone says he is you grab him.

                              You do make a good point of Spags eye for talent in the later rounds for Defensive Lineman. Not sure if that will factor in on this years draft we will have to wait and see.

                              Bye the way I am lmao that you never tried to provide evidence of your statement that dominating defensive lineman can be easily found in the later rounds. The statement is a big time strecth of the imagination and false.

                              Go Rams

                                Is Bartell really a number 1 corner..Nope
                                by Speedyroach
                                Bartell had a good year for a bad team. He was also beaten long a number of times. My concern is our paying #1 corner salary to a less than top notch corner.

                                I really think Bartell is at best a 5 mil player, paying him more than 7 mil per year is way too much. Remember for three years we couldn't decide if he was a corner or a safety. Now, he is a top notch corner...nope.

                                Sign bartell, but don't break the bank for him. If we are to pay top dollar go for McFadden.

                                Ron Bartell Injury: Rams CB Healed, Expects To Play Next Season

                                by T.Ram on Dec 16, 2011 11:19 AM PST in 2011 NFL regular season

LOUIS - SEPTEMBER 12: Ron Bartell #24 of the St. Louis Rams attempts to pick off a pass intended for Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals during the NFL season opener at the Edward Jones Dome on September 12 2010 in St. Louis Missouri. The Cardinals beat the Rams 17-13. (Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images)


                                With all the bad news the St. Louis Rams have dealt with this season, it's about time that something good happened. Something good happened today when cornerback Ron Bartell showed up at practice, his brace gone and neck healed from the broken vertebrae he suffered in the season opener.

                                Howard Balzer reported this on twitter.
                                Some good news for Rams: CB Ron Bartell out of neck brace. Bone is healed. Didn't need surgery. Said he is definitely playing next season..
                                For those that don't remember, Ron Bartell injured his neck against the Philadelphia Eagles. Before that, the Rams lost Jerome Murphy for the season in training camp. Following the Bartell injury, many other Rams would follow suit and end up on IR.


                                Next season, the Rams will be returning their three best corners. Two of those, Bradley Fletcher and Ron Bartell, have become injury magnets in their careers. Murphy hasn't been injured as often, but the jury is still out if he will become a good player.


                                The Rams have to decide if Ron Bartell is worth bringing back this season and beyond. He is owed $6 million in 2012, the last year of his current contract; Bradley Fletcher's rookie contract ends in 2013.


                                It will be shocking if the Rams don't draft or add another quality corner in the off-season....

                                How do you guys think Bartell is doing? I thought the first game they really went after him in the passing game. I did not get to watch the second game but I listened to a good part of it. The first game I thought he was giving to big of a cushion and the receiver could make a catch in just about any part of the field. I have been looking for stats on thrown at versus passes defensed but have been unable to find any on Bartell. It seemed like he was thrown at several times in both games and had just 1 pass defense in each game.

                                seriously this guy is becoming a true shut down corner for this team, he held santana moss and terell owens to a combined 4 receptions, he has not gave up the deep ball and he is as sure of a tackler as your going to get, im not goin to lie i was not sold on him when we drafted him but he has progressed to an unbelievable level
