  • Chris Long

    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!

    This is great news and goes along with his natural progression as a young player on a
    bad team. The Long is a bust brigade is premature. All he needs is time to gain some
    more strength and he will be fine

        Good job by Chris Long- a couple of sacks in the last couple of games. Hopefully, he'll continue this very positive sign that he's growing as a player.

          Isn't it three in the last three? That's a pretty good run. He's not quite Dwight Freeney, but this is definitely a good showing.

            Yeah, I think you're right, shower beers. Definitely encouraging to see this & nice that a guy who works tirelessly gets rewarded.

              Just imagine if he had some talent around him on the DL

                Yes, good to see this young man effort start to pay off. Understandable though, the bust label given so early and freely due to the recent horrible track record of Ram draft picks. Hopefully, Long is not in that company. Time will tell.

                  imo it's not all about the sacks, it's been just as nice having him in there against the run instead of little/hall who both struggle against the run. nice to see him getting his numbers too though, since that's all some people seem to look at.

                      Chris Long with another sack today vs. Chicago. Really pleased he's continued to progress and his motor is still running during a tough season.

                        I agree bro, getting Suh will make Long look even better. He's been impressive.

                          One blip on the screen today with the one Sack, Basically another quite day for C-Long. I'll try to have patience, but I would expect a little more coming from such a high draft pick!

                            Tomahawk247 has it right when stating that he would be even better if surrounded with better talent. That is the problem with most of this team; a few good players surrounded by the JV...

                              Well, he's already reached his sack count from last year on a horrible d-line, where he's really the only player opposing offenses have to account for, and he's showing steady improvement, especially in the last few weeks. I may be mistaken, but hasn't it been 4 sacks in 5 games? That's a pretty good number to me. I think your expectations may be a bit high.

                                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.

                                Chris Long off to good start
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                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.

                                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!

                                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!!

                                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.
