  • Reason for why we are 6-34 in last 40 games

    With the exception of Barron and Jackson (still waiting on Long) every single one of these guys were busts. Several to my knowledge do not play in the NFL any more. When you see this terrible list of first round draft picks, it's no wonder we are a losing team. Hopefully Devaney and Coach Spangnuolo will put together a few consecutive good draft years. What's really painful is in a 7 year period we drafted Bettis, Pace, Wistrom, Kevin Carter and Holt. Not to mention later round talent like Bruce and Little.

    Old news. Also, change your formatting so the list isn't in white.

    You have to move past this. The Rams sure have.

          So you're already calling Jason Smith (who was on your list) a bust?

          Aside from that, I agree that our drafting has been poor. Teams who are consistently good are able to replace talent, usually through the draft but also through free agency. We haven't been particularly successful with either, but our drafts over the last 6-8 years overall have not been good at all.

            The draft is one reason, but not the whole reason. Most teams have had bad draft picks, even teams considered good at drafting such as New England, Baltimore and Philadelphia

              Pickett is a starting NT in Green Bay right now, Rams would do well to have someone like him next to Ryan.

                A Proper Perspective
                by viper
                While things may appear bleak at the moment, I thought it would be interesting to see where we are in the standings against the rest of the league. It was pretty enlightening to see that we are tied or one game behind 22 other teams in the league. Teams like the New Orlean Saints, the Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks to name a few.

                We all know that we should have won those two games. We had them in our grasp and let them slip away. While I am most disappointed in the outcomes, I am encouraged by the fact that we looked a lot better defensively and our offense finally began stretching the field. If not for a few miscues we had those games won.

                We have been decimated by injuries and suspensions lately. Considering all of the mounting setbacks, I thought our team played pretty well. We are almost there, but not quite. I still have hope that we can save the season and maybe squeak into the playoffs. A tall task at this point for sure, but possible nonetheless. Looking at the struggles that most of the league is also enduring gives me hope that our cause is not yet lost this season.

                While I'm not so naive to discount the fact that we have a major task ahead of us, I'm also willing to support my team, players and coaches as long as it appears they are trying to get better and win. I believe we are getting better and its only a matter of time before things start clicking. This may be one of our rebuilding years. But, I think a case can be made that we are improved over the last two seasons. I think we are headed in the right direction and with time things will come together for our team. Have faith!!!

                Garcia to sign with Tampa Bay...and other updates

                Tracking the comings and goings in free agency
                By Adam Schefter
                NFL Analyst

                (March 3, 2007) -- Free agency has opened with a flurry. Already, numerous teams are on the board. Take a glance at the deals, and the potential soon-to-be deals.
                Saturday, March 3

                The Buccaneers and free-agent quarterback Jeff Garcia have reached a contract ageement. The deal will be announced later in the day.
                Friday, March 2

                The Patriots are expected to sign free agent LB Adalius Thomas and TE Kyle Brady.
                The Saints are scheduled to host free agents CB Ken Hamlin and LB Brian Simmons on Saturday.
                The ***** have signed CB Nate Clements to the biggest contract ever given to a defensive player -- eight years, $80 million, including $22 million guaranteed.
                Browns have signed OT Eric Steinbach to seven-year contract worth $49.5 million with $17 million guaranteed.
                Bills have agreed to terms with guard Derrick Dockery on seven-year deal worth $49 million with $18.5 million guaranteed.
                (Note: Last year, Steve Hutchinson deal was worth $49 million for seven years with $16.5 guaranteed. Dockery (guard) matches that, and Steinbach (tackle) just beats it. Both Steinbach and Dockery got more guaranteed money than Hutchinson.)
                Also, the Bills and OT Langston Walker have agreed to terms on five-year deal worth approximately $25 million.
                Buccaneers have signed free-agent DE Patrick Chukwurah to five-year contract worth $5.5 million with $400,000 guaranteed.

                Giants officially sign C Shaun O'Hara.
                Free-agent LB Napoleon Harris scheduled to visit the Buccaneers Friday and Chiefs Saturday.
                Rams hosted visits with free agents LB Tully Banta-Cain and WR Drew Bennett.
                Patriots hosted visits with free agents TE Kyle Brady and RB Sammy Morris.
                ***** also played host to free-agents S Michael Lewis.

                Broncos hosted visits with free agents TE Daniel Graham, RB Ahman Green and DE Patrick Kerney, and scheduled to welcome QB Brad Johnson on March 3.

                Bench Clearing Brawl at Miami-FIU Game
                by SFCRamFan
                Bench-clearing brawl interrupts Miami-FIU game

                Associated Press

                MIAMI -- A sideline-clearing brawl interrupted the third quarter of the Florida International-Miami game Saturday night, prompting the ejection of 13 players in the first meeting between the South Florida rivals.

                FIU had eight players ejected, Miami had five. It was the first on-field fight in FIU's five-year football history, school officials said.

                Florida International's ejected players were wide receiver Chandler Williams, defensive backs Lionell Singleton, Chris Smith and Marshall McDuffie Jr., fullback John Ellis, linebacker Mannie Wellington, tight end Samuel Smith and defensive end Jarvis Penerton.

                The ejected Miami players were offensive linemen Derrick Morse and Chris Barney, running back Charlie Jones, and cornerbacks Carlos Armour and Bruce Johnson.

                All 13 players are expected to be suspended for one game.

                The fight started shortly after Jon Peattie's extra point with 9:00 left in the third quarter gave Miami a 14-0 lead. Both sidelines quickly emptied, with several fights breaking out during the melee before order was restored.

                The brawl lasted about five minutes, and it took officials several more minutes to sort out the penalties. Players from both sides appeared to be swinging helmets, and one injured FIU player came onto the field swinging a crutch at Miami players.

                More than two dozen uniformed police officers came onto the field, trying to end the fights.

                Several minutes after order was restored on the field, one fight broke out among fans in the northwest corner of the end zone, with more than 12 police officers running into the stands to break up that melee. More officers, including some wearing helmets, continued to surround the perimeter of the field.

                Tensions ran high throughout the evening, with several instances of players exchanging heated words at the end of plays.

                But emotions quickly boiled over after Miami's second touchdown.

                James Bryant caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Wright, then drew a 15-yard flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. After that catch, he appeared to point at the FIU bench, then took a theatrical bow.

                Moments later, Peattie kicked the extra point and the brawl started.

                This thing was brutal...If you get a chance check it out. It looked more like a gang fight than a football game. Jeez...

                Vince Young almost retired after Rookie Season
                by The Special One
                ESPN - Pressure almost pushed Young out of NFL after one season - NFL

                Pressure almost pushed Young out of NFL after one season

                Vince Young is known for escaping pressure. The quarterback almost took that to extremes.

                The Tennessee Titans 2006 Rookie of the Year told in an interview posted on Monday that he considered retirement after his first season.

                "I really thought long and hard about it," Young told the Web site. "There was so much going on with my family. It was crazy being an NFL quarterback. It wasn't fun anymore. All of the fun was out of it. All of the excitement was gone. All I was doing was worrying about things.
                "My teammates helped lift me out of it. I prayed really hard. And I began to focus on God's calling for me. Play football. Be a role model."
                Young was installed as the Titans starter in Week 4 of his rookie season and led Tennessee to an 8-8 record. The Titans barely missed making the playoffs, but Young was named to the Pro Bowl.

                Last season, the Titans did make it to the playoffs, but Young threw all nine of the team's touchdown passes for the fewest of any team in the league. Nonetheless, he learned to live with the pressure of being an NFL quarterback.

                He proved that to himself when he handled scrutiny that came his way when pictures of him drinking shirtless at a party showed up on the Internet.

                "I have a stronger circle," Young told the Web site. "Now I can handle this kind of stuff without it making me want to give up football. I learned that 24/7 I'm representing the Titans and, especially, the kids all over I am trying to influence. I look at my man Michael Vick. I learned from that. I look at Pacman [Jones]. I learned from that. I look at some troubles recently for rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne, guys I listen to. I learned from them. I've learned from my life."


                Wow. That really shcoked me when I first read it. I mean, we all knew Young has always struggled to cope mentally with being the core of the Titans and having to try and live up to being such a high draft pick, but I at least never imagined it had reached such drastic levels after his first year.

                It just goes to show - absolutely ANYTHING can happen in the NFL.

                Idea for New SitCom: "Mrs. Quarterback"
                by AvengerRam_old
                To: NBC Executive Board, Pilot Committee

                From: Armen Dacity

                Re: Sitcom Idea: "Mrs. Quarterback"


                The Premise: A religious, middle-aged wife of a veteran NFL QB is forced to co-exist with the promiscuous, partying girlfriend of a rookie second string QB. Hilarity ensues.

                Setting will be the desert Southwest. Nice scenery and a lots of hot weather to provide excuses for skimpy clothing.


                Glenda Werner: The older wife. She is very religious and the devoted mother of seven children. She doesn't have great fashion sense, and doesn't fit in well with her husband's life as a "celebrity." She often says too much, but deep down, she has a heart of gold.

                Bert Werner: The veteran QB. He is also very religious, and somewhat of an unwilling celebrity. His best days are behind him, but he still believes he can relive the glory. He's been burned before by an upstart rookie playing behind him, but he nonetheless continues to say all the right things.

                Pat Rhinert: The rookie QB. He is the cocky, Hollywood type. He has been extremely successful in college, and expects nothing less in the Pros. However, inside, he knows he may not have what it takes.

                Athens Mariott: The rookie's party-loving girlfriend. She's the spoiled rich-girl heiress to a vast hotel fortune. She's bounced around from sleezy sexcapades with older men, to failed relationships with rich boys, rock stars and actors, and now is hooked up with a flashy athlete. She has the morals of a sewer rat.


                Sample Scene from Pilot

                Pat: "Athens... hurry up! Bert and Glenda should be here any second. Could you at least put on a bra and panties?"

                Athens: "What--ever!"

                [doorbell rings - Pat opens the door]

                Bert: "Hey, Pat, ready for practice?"

                Pat: "Sure am, Bert. Say, is that a new car?"

                Bert: "Yep. Brand new preowned Ford Taurus. Pretty sweet, huh?"

                Pat: "Um... yeah."

                Bert: "Go check it out."

                [Pat steps outside and trips, nearly falling down the front steps.]

                Pat: "Did you just trip me?"

                Bert: "Me? Trip you? Of course not."

                Pat: "Well, it seemed like you did... and pushed me a little? You're not trying to get me injured, are you?"

                Bert: "Don't be silly."

                [Athens emerges wearing a sheer belly shirt and hot pants]

                Glenda: "Oh my word!"

                Athens: "I know... isn't it hot?"

                Glenda: "Um... well..."

                Athens: "What is it, Church lady?"

                Pat: "Athens!...
