  • Any good players out there?

    I'm not knee deep into how all of this works, but I expected to see some good quality players from other teams released. But I haven't heard about any becoming available.

    Did anyone of consequence w/r to the Ram's needs get cut from other teams? It seemed like last season there were several but now there seems to be zilch.

    What need do we have that's so glaring that a pre-season cut is going to fix, and what player would you get rid of on our 53-man roster to make such an addition?

      Part of this depends on whether you think that kennedy goes on IR if we find a defensive tackle that we like. I dont consider myself that knowledgeable on other teams, but i sure didnt see anything that looked very good on the waiver wire at defensive tackle.

        God I hate people that answer a question with a question. It is so damn condescending.

        At least answer him Nick and then ask the question.

          ...yet it's perfectly okay to come into a thread and flame someone's response. Go figure. At least answer the question yourself if you're going to criticize someone for not doing so. :bored:

          Anyways, so Trout doesn't twist his panties any more than necessary, considering we're going to have to take someone off the roster before this weekend anyways to make room for Pace -- and the Rams seem as if they want to keep Fisher and Kennedy off IR since they expect both back in mid to late November -- I don't necessarily see the need to go out and grab someone off waivers and force ourselves to release two players.

          For those that think we need help on the defensive line still, guys like Kenny Holmes or Bryan Robinson are available last I checked. The Giants released Solomon Page, Buffalo released LB Jason Gildon, the Jets released TE Michael Ricks, the Ravens released CB/returner Lamont Brightful, the Broncos released TEs Jed Weaver and Byron Chamberlain, the Raiders released LB Dwayne Rudd, and the Chargers released S Kwamie Lassiter. However, I don't feel any of these players would provide enough to warrant cutting someone currently on the roster.

          You have to consider that at this point, we're talking about bringing in guys who don't know our schemes and calls. Therefore, the person would have to be pretty good to be expected to make any immediate impact. So unless we're looking for depth -- which we have plenty of right now IMO -- then there's not much to consider right now.

            Thanks Trout. Thanks Nick.

            What prompted me to ask this was I remember last year Lawyer Milloy being released by the Pats. So I was wondering if there were any like that available: a great player cut for money reasons, or personality problems with the coach, or perhaps he was viewed as too old or injured, like George. I was hoping we could get a proven player, who has some life left in him, and put him to work.

            I'm not familiar with all our 53 players, but I assume that some are not the best, and was hoping that someone better from another team was cut that maybe we could pick.

            In all team sports, frequently it is the 2nd string guys who win the games.

            So, if some good DB was cut, maybe we could take him and let Coady go.

              See how easy that was Nick. Thank you. I did not respond because I was waiting for somebody with more knowledge like yourself to answer the question :tongue:

                  I would imagine Randall will probably be released with Pace's spot on the roster becomes official, unless the Rams plan to IR Kennedy or Fisher.

                    Question about the 1982 rams-the strike year
                    by Guest
                    Question about the strike shortened 1982 season. Do the replacement players count in your minds as Rams? After all, they did wear the horns on the field. Note that none of the team media guides list the replacement players on the all time roster. I bought a team photo of the replacement players which is apparantly pretty scarce but i cant find an actual roster, does anyone have one? Any truth to the story that dez was a wide receiver on the replacement team?

                    Question...
                    by VegasRam
                    I just realized after watching the NFL for 40 years, that I don't understand why players are put on the "inactive" list. The roster's set at 53, so when someone is inactive, does that mean we activate someone from the practice squad, or what?

                    Questions
                    by coy bacon
                    I dread being as optimistic as the rest of you, but I am. And that scares me.

                    That being said, after seeing the Day-twah game, I thought we looked great. But, I think that our concensous (sp ha ha), is that we are weak in the secondary.

                    Now forgive my dark fog of ignorance, but I remember that there was a time last season when several teams cut some older, expensive players. Some of these guys were picked up by other teams, others had to eat humble pie and take a pay cut.

                    Between now and the season, are there any opportunites of us picking up such a stud DB? I'd like to see us get stronger there.

                    I think if Daytwah's QB was sharper, they'd done a lot better against us. Harrington really sucked when he threw the ball. It wasn't our coverage, it was his accuracy. I think we are weaker at the DB positions than that game indicated.

                    Question For Those Who Have Attended A Game This Year
                    by r8rh8rmike
                    Is the new bag policy a non-issue? I really thought it would be troublesome, but I have not heard about any problems what so ever. I'm curious because I'd like to be prepared to go early if need be.

                    Trivia Question on rams history-who goes both ways?
                    by Guest
                    Here is an interesting rams trivia question. I dont know the answer and before i start researching in the old media guides, i thought one of you guys might know the answer.

                    Who was the last rams player to play both ways during an NFL game? I am not talking about a play here or there (ie pat studstill who was the punter and a backup wide receiver), i mean an every down guy, chuck bedanarik style (who i think was the last nfl player to play every down both ways, but i am not sure about that).

                    Thanks for your help guys, i look forward as always to your responses.
