  • Time for Donnie Avery to step it up

    With Laurent Robinson out for the season, Donnie is now our #1 receiver. He had an excellent rookie season and I hope that he can improve those numbers this year. I am looking forward to seeing what he does today against the *****. How about you guys?

    I think everyone would agree with that. What I'd like to see are more go patterns for him. That is where he shined last year and I don't recall seeing any this year. I may have missed it if they did. Regardless, we need to spread the field to get Jackson some running room.

    GO RAMS!!!

      no doubt he needs to step up today and start to live up to all the praise that some guys on here have given him.

        Everybody needs to step it up. Sure some have further to step than others but Avery is not alone.

            no fumbles today Donnie. If Jaxx and the rest of that offense get the ball moving, I think Avery will also do well. Hopefully we can pick up a win today off our division rivals.

            GO RAMS!

                It's a big game for Donnie no doubt. He will get increased targets with the injury to Laurent, but now he becomes the guy that the D will put their top corner on and the guy that they say "Don't let him get free whatever you do."

                I think Kyle and Donnie are good for each other. Kyle gives Donnie a QB with a big arm that can get him the ball downfield. Donnie gives Kyle a WR to take a shot with deep. Kyle's biggest asset is his arm strength and in order to use his tools, the deep ball his to be emphasized.

                  Avery Steps to Front.
                  by 01d 0rd3r
                  Like most teams in the NFL, attrition begins to take its toll on rosters around the league the deeper into the season you get. That’s certainly held true in the case of the Rams and nowhere is that more evident than at the receiver position.

                  At a position that was short on experience entering the season, there’s been only one constant. That constant is a blur in blue, wearing No. 17 named Donnie Avery.

                  No matter which quarterback has been under center, the one player that signal caller has been able to count on this year is Avery, the second-year speedster out of Houston.

                  “You get comfortable with certain guys,” quarterback Kyle Boller said. “I just started taking reps with these guys again. Donnie is probably one of the ones I’m more comfortable with because he’s been around for training camp and mini camps and all that kind of stuff. I feel like each and every week we get more comfortable with each other. That’s the name of the game. Timing is what it’s all about.”

                  After an up and down start to this, his second season in the league, Avery has timed his emergence at a good time.

                  It’s difficult for any young player to have an immediate impact but receivers rarely make that much of a difference unless their name is Randy Moss.

                  In the offseason, the Rams’ receiver corps went through an extreme makeover, leaving Avery and fellow second year wideout Keenan Burton as the most tenured players at the position on the roster.

                  But at least entering the year, Avery was surrounded by players like Laurent Robinson and Burton, guys who had been in the new offense installed by coordinator Pat Shurmur for the entirety of the offseason program.

                  Fast forward to now and Avery is the only active wideout on the roster who was also on it when the preseason came to an end.

                  Whether he was ready for an expanded leadership role or not, Avery was thrust into it as the most experienced guy on the team.

                  “I don’t try to go out and yell during the week or go crazy,” Avery said. “I just try to lead by example and go out there, practice hard and hopefully go into the game, play hard and have success.”

                  Since the beginning of the season, the Rams have lost Robinson and Burton to season-ending injuries. Derek Stanley was released to make room for Danny Amendola and the likes of Nate Jones and Tim Carter have made appearances on the roster.
                  The Rams have replaced those players with youngsters like Amendola and Brandon Gibson as well as more experienced guys like Ruvell Martin and Jordan Kent.

                  But none of those players have been around or have the rapport with the quarterbacks like Avery and all of those receivers are quick to turn to Avery with questions.

                  “I just try to calm them,” Avery says of the younger wideouts. “Sometimes, I see them on the sideline with jitters and tell them I...

                  Donnie Avery, in perspective...
                  by AvengerRam_old
                  After 11 games, here are Donnie Avery's stats, where he ranks among second year WRs this year, and the top Soph. in each category:

                  Receptions: 34 (7th); Davone Bess, Miami - 49
                  Yards: 466 (5th); DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia - 769
                  YPC: 13.7 (7th); DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia - 17.5
                  TDs: 5 (2nd); DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia - 6

                  Now... apart from the obvious - that the Rams probably should have taken DeSean Jackson - what does this tell us?

                  Well, I'd say it tells us that Avery is holding his own among the players he was drafted with. Notably, Avery has been fairly consistent in his first two years, while others have either had Soph. slumps (i.e. Eddie Royal) or emerged this year after extremely quiet rookie seasons (i.e. Mario Manningham).

                  I also think its notable that Avery has fought through injuries to stay on the field, has dealt with a change in offensive coordinators and instablity at the QB position, and has had to play accross from seemingly countless WRs.

                  In all, I'd say Avery stacks up as a guy who continues to have promise. The Rams need to add more talent at WR, but Avery should be part of the long term plan.
