    It's just bad coaching....


    This is why I'm hoping that Spags can get our guys like Chris Long going here soon.

      Once the offense finally gets some kind of momentum, and the defense can find some way to stop people BEFORE they get in the red zone, it will happen, Moose.

          It's not a Rams thing, every team in the NFL has a list like this.

                I dedicate bad coaching to those bust draft picks. Like you mentioned, they are doing well in other places where they have great coaches to mentor them. Luckily we brought in Spags for that reason. I think he's going to develop chris long into an awesome End.

                  I remember after the Pickett, Lewis and Kennedy picks and under performance it was asked why the defensive line coach was never called out and blamed. Jeff Gordon's response was that it couldn't be his fault because basically he yelled really loud at practice and everyone liked him. That's the type of media pros we have covering this team.

                  Yesterday Bernie bashed Spags for not yelling enough.

                          Seeing that, just depresses me so much. And I'm not even joking, all those "busts" are on winning teams, while us fans, were still on a losing team.

                          It honestly tears me up a bit. It's hard being a Rams fan, but forever I am one!

                            That's a big part of it. Not only does every team have a bust list like the Rams, but many of those bust players move on and have respectable careers elsewhere when they are no longer held under the microscope with the expectations of being a high draft pick.

                            Tony Mandarich, undoubtedly one of the biggest busts of all time, had some good years as a guard for the Colts in the early Manning years after he had flamed out with Green Bay and spent some time in rehab.

                                Rams, 3 Draft Picks Come To Terms
                                Monday, July 24, 2006

                                The Rams have agreed to three-year contracts with a trio of players from the 2006 Draft class, DE Victor Adeyanju, LB Tim McGarigle, and G Tony Palmer. Adeyanju (pronounced ah-DAY-on-joo), from Indiana, was the Rams' fourth-round draft choice (113th overall) in this year's draft. McGarigle from Northwestern (221st overall) and Palmer from Missouri(243rd overall) were the Rams' first and third picks in the seventh round, respectively.

                                Tony Banks

                                The one key draft decision that shaped each NFL team

                                NFL talent evaluators may spend millions of dollars and months of work poring over the available prospects, but that doesn't mean the draft will ever rise to the level of science. Now that the league's annual personnel crapshoot is again upon us, let's review one recent key draft decision for each of the NFL's 32 clubs, a pivotal move that for better or worse helped shape the teams they are today:

                                ST. LOUIS RAMS
                                Jimmy Kennedy, DT, Penn State, first round, 2003
                                It's hard to imagine the Rams' defense showing any sustained improvement until they stop taking underproductive defensive linemen in the first round. Kennedy, who went 12th in 2003, has followed in the tradition of defensive tackle Damione Lewis (12th in 2001) and Ryan Pickett (29th in 2001). Second-round defensive end Tony Hargrove (2004) has been a nice find, but the Rams once again need draft help at the front of their defense, and that can't be an every-year occurrence.

                                .

                                Wed, 19 Apr 2006 18:24:01 -0700

                                The St. Louis Rams have nine draft picks in the 2006 NFL Draft. The team has picks 1.11 (11 overall), 2.14 (46 overall), 3.13 (77 overall), 4.12 (109 overall), 5.11 (144 overall), 6.14 (183 overall), 7.13 (221 overall), 7.34 (242 overall) and 7.35 (243 overall).




                                As if we didn't know but it counts for us who can't count past 10.:tongue:

                                Draft Picks
                                by realchamp11
                                i was looking at the draft order for the rams in the draft, and was wondering how is the 2nd, 3rd, 4th,... round picks decided? Because they seem to be randomly.

                                So if anyone knows how the picks are decided W/B

                                :1:

                                Pathetic draft history
                                by Chiledog
                                As I look at the Rams' recent 1st rounders, a nauseating feeling sets in. This is no news for anyone on the board here, but these picks were just pathetic. With the possible exception of Barron (who we all hope will prove his worth as a first rounder this year), and Arch (at least in the opinion of one Dan Snyder) I see very little very little wisdom from the Rams' personel department.

                                2005 Alex Barron OT
                                2004 Steven Jackson RB
                                2003 Jimmy Kennedy DT
                                2002 Robert Thomas LB
                                2001 Damione Lewis DT
                                Adam Archuleta DB
                                Ryan Pickett DT
                                2000 Trung Canidate RB


                                My conclusion? If we can't do better than this with our middle-of-the-first round picks, then let's DRAFT UP for a sure pro-bowler! Giving up a first and second round pick, to get a star, makes more sense to me than keeping the picks for ourselves and adding more mid-round talent to our roster.

                                I've said my piece...
