  • Chris Long off to good start

    Chris Long has 16 tackles in 4 games - most of any rookie DL.

    He also has 2 sacks - tied for most among rookies.

    So far, so good.

      And that is why I said way back when, that we needed to get Chris Long if we could. And then Linny went 3-13 for me, got Chris, and then got fired. You know, he's really a pretty good guy after all!
      I believe!:ram:

          It is too bad that because he plays on the Rams he isn't likely to get any of the League honors a rookie playing like that should get. Anyone notice him even being mentioned on any of the NFL shows? Why hasn't he been mentioned for rookie of the week, or any of the other awards? Because he plays on the Rams.

            Same reason why Atogwe didn't go to the probowl last year.

            Who knows, he may get rookie of the year for defense or something. It's too soon to tell.:helmet:

                Gotta feel good about Chris Long at this point. Leads all rookie DL with 16 tackles and ties for lead among all rookies with 2.0 sacks. One of the few highlights so far.
                Why hasn't he been mentioned for rookie of the week
                Well, to be fair, defensive rookies rarely get nominated for this. Maybe he'll get nominated this week. Of the first 3 weeks, only 2 of the 15 nominees were defensive players (Horton, week 2; Merling week 3)



                P.S.
                Chris Chamberlain - 5 tackles, 4 solo
                Vern "God-like" Gholston - 5 tackles, 3 solo
                The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                  I like how Chris Long is coming a-Long (that was supposed to be funny). I think him and Little are a great pair of DE's. That's pretty funny that one of our 7th round draft picks is doing better than Vernon Gholston statistic-wise hahahah.

                        10 sacks in the first three games, can you really blame the Rams for wanting a top OT? I certainly can't. Chris was tops on my draft board but I had no issue with Jake as a pick either.

                        As for Gholston, it's because he's shown that he can't grasp the defensive playbook (read: stupid) for the Jets yet, and so most of his work has been done on special teams and as a sub.

                          i lovee that we got C. Long. he was my first choice. I felt the same way as teke. if we had picked up jake i woulda been happy b/c o-line is a major concern also.

                            It has been mostly interior pressure. With Jacob Bell back we only gave up 2 sacks and 1 one was from Whitner so that is on the back or TE. I want to start Grecco or Schuening over Cogs, because he has been garbage. Get a center and takcle of the future the line isnt in bad shape

                            Chris long is beastly i hope he doesn't come out fast and cool off like amobi okoye. I really like our D-line we just gotta get something besides Spoon behind them in the future.

                              I think Roy Williams will get Longs spot in the Pro Bowl this year. He can play end.

                              I did see Long mentioned in week 1, on espn though. He may have had a tackle for loss(?)

                                Did anyone notice that Chris Long caused the fumble (the one Clifton Ryan won't soon forget) and had a few other solid pressures? Too bad he doesn't get credit for any sacks. He had a great game.

                                With Less Than 12 Hours To Go, Here's What We're Certain Of...
                                by Bar-bq
                                NOTHING!!!

                                Anyone who cites anything as a certainty at this point in time with regards to who we're picking is flat out lying.

                                All we can do is make premonition on what we feel?

                                With that said, here's how I'm feeling it out.

                                Chris Long is the pick.

                                Wide Receiver or OT in the second.

                                The other in the third, depending on best value.

                                With regards to players and personnel

                                Carl Nicks could be a great fit for this franchise.

                                Glenn Dorsey can cause problems for an offense...but he worth the rostering problems he'd create?

                                Mike Jenkins is my favourite corner in this draft. Cromartie has the potential to be excellent, but Jenkins, IMO, is more rounded.

                                Beau Bell is another of my favourites. He could be a stud for a 3-4 time. The Dolphins could use him to replace Zach Thomas.

                                I don't think Calias Campbell will make the first round, alongside fellow potential dropouts Malcolm Kelly and Sam Baker.

                                I have Duane Brown over Sam Baker at this stage, but I'd have Limas Sweed or DeSean Jackson over either of them.

                                For a potential surprise, look for the Jets and Matt Ryan.

                                New Orleans has great potential to swing some type of trade in the first 2 rounds, be it for Dorsey, Ellis or acquiring Jeremy Shockey from the Giants.

                                Atlanta and Kansas City are my early favuorites for "best draft".

                                Someone will have a steal in Tommy Kelly, or Jack Ikegwuonu, if they can hold themselves together.

                                "Ikegwuonu and his twin brother Bill were arrested in November 2006 after they allegedly broke into an apartment and stole an X-box video game system"-- The Sports Xchange.

                                Tom Zibrowski could be a mid-round find.

                                AND FINALLY....

                                This will be a great day! I can't wait!

                                How many pure (Don't also play lb like Brian Orakpo or are in the 3-4) DE's in there first or second year have more sacks than Chris Long? The answer 2 Cliff Avril and Kroy Bierman with 4.5 and 5.

                                There is a lot of praise going around for Steven Jackson, but man, what about Chris Long!? That sack he had was a nice one today. Almost had one earlier in the game and had a few more hits on the QB today.

                                He's really getting into a rhythm. Hope this campaign carries out for the rest of the year!

                                Chris Long and the four point stance
                                by tomahawk247
                                Have you seen that four point stance that Long lines up in? It looks odd, but cool at the same time, like he is about to pounce!

                                What an awesome season this guy is having. In a season where the Rams are struggling, he is playing so well. Considering that teams can run on this D with ease and don't need to pass much due to being in the lead often, the fact he has been able to rack up 10 sacks is ridiculous.

                                NFL Sack Stats
                                1. DeMarcus Ware 14
                                2. Jared Allen 13.5
                                3. Von Miller 10.5
                                3. Jason Pierre-Paul 10.5
                                5. Jason Babin 10
                                5. Chris Long 10


                                Just think: If Rod Hood hadn't pointlessly held his guy on Sunday, Chris Long would have got another sack and would be 3rd in the league!!
