  • Report: Rams expressed serious interest in Osi.

    Per rotoworld:

    The Rams and Panthers reportedly expressed serious interest in trading for Osi Umenyiora during the Senior Bowl and February's Combine.
    At the time, the Giants were not entertaining any offers. However, Giants beat reporter Mike Garafolo agrees with NFL Network's Mike Lombardi that Umenyiora could be put on the block if New York uses the 15th overall pick on Jason Pierre-Paul, who GM Jerry Reese seems to covet. Umenyiora, 28 and coming off his worst season, might be available for a third-round pick.

    If we can snatch him, I will be that much more excited for next season!

      A quick fix but he should fit REALLY well in Spag's schemes.

        I'd offer them a fourth or maybe our two fifth round picks on the eve of Day Three of the draft.

            Agreed. I would be really happy to see him in horns.

            Adding to the off-topic, I kind of hibernated for a little while after realizing how wrong I was (still love Vick though) , and it affected my rep..I jumped on the Bradford bandwagon, and am glad to be back outta the whiner red rep

            CANT WAIT FOR THURSDAY

              Great pass rusher spags really maximized his pro bowl ability. I would consider giving up to a third for him

                Re: Report: Rams expressed serious interest in Osi.

                To see if Osi is good value for a third round pick, let's compare other pass rushers that should be available in the third round.


                There is:

                Corey Wooten (Northwestern)

                Jermaine Cunninghman (Florida)

                Austen Lane (Murray State)



                I'm not high on Wooten, and thinks he is a better fit for a 3-4 scheme. He's not quick and fast enough to be a RE in the NFL in my opinion.

                I would take Osi over him.


                However, Cunningham and Lane are two very good DEs. I think I would take Osi over Cunningham, but with Lane's upside, I think I would take Lane over Osi.

                  IDK man, I would take Osi over these 3 just because he's proven in Spags defense.

                    He's proven in Spag's defense, yes, but last year, his level of production dropped. Idk that I would necessarily trade him for a 3rd round pick when there are high upside guys like Austen Lane still available.


                    But, if we do trade for Osi, I wouldn't mind. He might play better when reunited with his former DC.

                      yes agreed, I do think he will play MUCH better with his former DE, the Giants didn't lose much on the front 4, so I do wonder why his production dropped last year.

                        Because they barely understood Bill Sheridan's defensive system.

                          idk... 3rd round pick is awfully high... but if he can have 5 more productive years and Spags knows exactly what he's getting...then I feel okay about it.

                            I really think he should be able to play many years under Spags. And he fits a big need and would also help Long get better. I really hope this is more than just a rumor.

                                Report: Bruschi suffered stroke-like symptoms
                                Wednesday, February 16, 2005
                                ESPN.com news services

                                BOSTON -- New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Wednesday after complaining of headaches.

                                WBZ-TV in Boston reported Wednesday that Bruschi had stroke-like symptoms, partial paralysis and blurred vision.

                                Bruschi was to spend the night at the hospital and more tests were scheduled for Thursday morning, team spokesman Stacey James said.

                                "He is in good condition and will be held for further evaluations," the team said in a statement. "The Bruschi family appreciates everyone's concern, but requests that you respect their privacy at this time."


                                A spokeswoman for Massachusetts General Hospital would neither confirm nor deny Bruschi had been admitted and referred all questions to the Patriots.

                                Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who was attending the men's college basketball game between Boston College and Rutgers on Wednesday night, declined comment.

                                Bruschi, a 6-foot-1, 247-pound nine-year NFL veteran, is a key member of New England's defense that has helped the team win three of the past four Super Bowls, including a 24-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Feb. 6.

                                Bruschi, selected in the third round of the 1996 draft out of Arizona, was second on the team in tackles during the regular season with 122, behind only safety Rodney Harrison with 138. He also had 3 sacks and three interceptions during the regular season.

                                He had two fumble recoveries in the team's 20-3 divisional playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts, and an interception in the Super Bowl.

                                He has 753 tackles, 25 sacks and 11 interceptions in his career.

                                He also played in last weekend's Pro Bowl in Hawaii for the first time.

                                Team Report: Inside Slant
                                by RamWraith
                                Inside Slant | Notes and Quotes | Strategy and Personnel
                                --As the Rams prepared for the start of training camp, more reports surfaced that new owners Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez were trying to sell the team.

                                The Sports Business Journal reported that the club had hired Moag & Co., a Baltimore-based investment company, "to find a group of possible buyers."
                                Rams president John Shaw responded to the initial report by saying, "I'm not going to comment on what we have or haven't done. Basically the only thing I can reiterate is what Chip (Rosenbloom) has said all along, that we're not actively seeking to sell."

                                Rosenbloom later confirmed to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Moag & Co. had been hired. However, Rosenbloom said the purpose was for the company to gather the numerous inquiries that have been made regarding a possible sale.

                                "We finally said, 'You know what, this is not how we want to spend eight hours a day. We need somebody to handle them,'" Rosenbloom said. "It would be totally inaccurate to say (Moag) is searching for buyers.

                                "We did not authorize (Moag) to go out and say, 'Hey, the team's up for sale.' It's simply returning these people's phone calls."

                                However, Rosenbloom also added, "It's the same as it's been. If the right person at the time right time with the right price came, I suppose that you might sell your house, right? So, I don't say never. ... If we get a phone call today from somebody who says the right things, we would listen. And that's why Moag is there."

                                Of course, most people don't sell their house unless it's put on the market. Rosenbloom acknowledged that the potential estate tax due for inheriting the team will be an issue. Rosenbloom and Rodriguez each became 30-percent owners when their mother, Georgia Frontiere, died in January.

                                "We don't know what we're going to be able to do, what we might owe in taxes," Rosenbloom said. "We don't know what the overall financial thing will be at the end of dealing with my mom's estate taxes. I do know there are a number of years we can hold onto the team without being concerned about it."

                                Fielding offers also can help establish a franchise value, which could be used in figuring the amount of tax owed.

                                While Rosenbloom has also insisted that he wants to keep the Rams in St. Louis, it is notable that John Moag, who runs Moag & Co., helped the Browns move to Baltimore in 1996, and he is also involved with renovation plans for the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., that could be used to attract an NFL team to Los Angeles.

                                Grading the Rams after their 23-12 victory over the Seattle Seahawks:


                                Quarterback

                                For the second time in his career, Marc Bulger has posted back-to-back passer
                                ratings of 100-plus.

                                GRADE . . . A minus


                                Running backs

                                The 1-2 punch at its best, with Marshall Faulk gaining a season-high 139 yards,
                                and Stephen Jackson scoring his second touchdown in the NFL.

                                GRADE . . . A


                                Receivers

                                There were a couple of drops, including a costly one by Shaun McDonald over the
                                middle in the end zone.

                                GRADE . . . B


                                Offensive line

                                Despite Orlando Pace's ejection and Chris Dishman's injury, this unit performed
                                a 180 compared to last week.

                                GRADE . . . A


                                Defensive line

                                The effort was there, but there wasn't much of a pass rush, or enough
                                resistance on run defense.

                                GRADE . . . C minus


                                Linebackers

                                Some improvement from recent weeks, both in shedding blockers and getting to
                                the ball.

                                GRADE . . . B minus


                                Secondary

                                Easily its best outing of the year. Travis Fisher's impact on coverage is
                                beginning to be felt.

                                GRADE . . . A


                                Special teams

                                No huge breakdowns, but kickoff coverage is still lacking. Arlen Harris
                                provided some spark on kickoff returns.

                                GRADE . . . B minus


                                Coaching

                                With his team in a do-or-die dilemma, Mike Martz's extreme approach during the
                                practice week paid dividends.

                                GRADE . . . A

                                Grading the Rams after their 30-16 victory over the Washington Redskins:

                                QUARTERBACK: Sam Bradford had the most solid outing of his rookie season. He completed 23 of 37 passes for 235 yards, with a TD and an interception. More important, his teammates credited Bradford with being calm yet firmly in control after the Redskins rallied for the lead in the third quarter. GRADE: B

                                RUNNING BACKS: Steven Jackson appeared to be on his way to a big day before a groin injury felled him late in the first half. Kenneth Darby and rookie Keith Toston stepped in nicely for Jackson against a Redskins defense was 8th in the league vs. the run. The Rams finished with a season high 133 rushing yards. GRADE: B+

                                RECEIVERS: WR Mark Clayton had another stout performance, with five catches for 85 yards, and Danny Amendola was solid, with six receptions for 56 yards. TE Daniel Fells had a 3-yard TD grab, and rookie TE Fendi Onobun produced a two-catch debut. GRADE: B

                                OFFENSIVE LINE: The pass blocking was generally good -- a few early glitches but marked improvement in the second half. Bradford was sacked just once and hit only a few of other times. The run blocking was the best it has been this season, particularly after Jackson left the game. GRADE: B+

                                DEFENSIVE LINE: The Redskins averaged 6.8 yards on 17 carries. QB Donovan McNabb was chased out of the pocket several times, but the Rams managed just one sack, by DE James Hall. GRADE: C+

                                LINEBACKERS: Pressure by newcomer Bryan Kehl led to a McNabb interception. Kehl was credited with 4 tackles in brief action. MLB James Laurinaitis was credited with a team-high 7 tackles. Good coverage vs. the Redskins TEs. GRADE: B-

                                SECONDARY: A 45-yard fumble return by S James Butler set up the Rams' second TD. Coverage suffered when S Oshiomogho Atogwe left with a thigh injury. Redskins WR Santana Moss piled up 124 receiving yards on just 6 catches. GRADE: C+

                                SPECIAL TEAMS: Another blocked field goal, the second in three games. But Josh Brown made all three FG tries in the 4th quarter, sealing the win. Donnie Jones averaged 46.0 yards (45.7 net) on three punts. Dominique Curry blocked a Washington punt. Rams coverage was OK, as were their returns. GRADE: C+

                                COACHING: Coach Steve Spagnuolo showed some confidence in his offense by going for it on 4th and 1 at the 'Skins 43 in the fourth quarter. The Rams got the first down and finished the drive with a field goal that gave them a two-possession cushion. OC Pat Shurmur mixed it up effectively, even going to four-WR sets several times. Excellent balance: 38 pass plays, 37 runs. DC Ken Flajole was generally aggressive, although the timing was off on several blitzes. GRADE: B+
