    Re: Chris Long

    Well, he's starting to find his groove on the pass rush which is very good for the future. And everyone is right, the Rams need to help him out with talent around him. Plug in Gerald McCoy if Suh is gone before we draft and I'll be just as happy.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Long is usually playing on the right side, which means he's facing the LT who is usually a more talented player. I wonder what his numbers would look like on the other side of the line. Past that, I wonder how many QB pressures he has...its gotta be pretty good.

    I'll also add that he's easily our best lineman against the run.

    Re: Chris Long

    Chris Long has four sacks in five games. I believe he is starting to come around and that he is putting tremendous amount of pressure on himself.

    I can not wait to see what the defence will look like next year. I do believe the Rams will finally deal with their nose tackle issues. Seeing as Vince Willfork, Casey Hampton are due for Unrestricted free agency this season and are both beasts. On the flip side Spags former N.T and 3-technique from his days with the Giants are also scheduled for free agency. Seeing as the Rams run defence is horrible; I don't think they have a choice. Spags imprint on this team is to stop the run and to pound the rock. I am convinced of some changes.

    Another positive note to send you way is the Rams are the third lowest payroll going into next season.

    As for the first round pick, I believe it will be spent on either a tackle or a W.R seeing as the Rams desperately need both. I do see the Rams maybe retaining the services of Alex Barron and giving Smith another year before he takes his job. Thus I am convinced they are going W.R in the first round.I also believe that Spags is not ready to give up on Bulger this is why I am convinced they are not going Quarterback in the first round.

    In my humble opinion you should build a team first before bringing in a franchise quarterback they need some playmakers to help them out to make the transition less difficult from College to the Pros.

    Their are not that many Matt Ryan's out there. A perfect example are players that took a while to develop or are still not living up to expectations such as, Jamarcus Russell, Matt Leinart, Vince Young, Alex Smith, Tavaris Jackson, etc... etc... Even Drew Brees took a while to devellop. Some of these players are riding the pine pony and they will be better for it. They get to receive the precious gift of time, and watching and learning from a veteran. I believe this is the right way to bring someone along. A perfect example of my belief is Aaron Rodgers who only got to get better by watching a living legend in Brett Favre.

    Rams will be competetive again next year... Mark my words....

    Go rams:helmet:

    he had three tackles and an assist with one of those tackles being a sack

    considering he is really the only guy on the line worth paying attention to, teams are simply not running his way and double teaming him on passing plays

    its sort of the same with OJ, teams have rarely thrown his way this year when they can throw on James Butler or Craig Dahl instead

    4 sacks in 4 games

    also, having watched the sack against the bears a couple of times, it really is a great combination of strength and speed that lets him get past Chris Williams with ease. You put Suh on that line and Chris Long easily surpasses 10 sacks next year

    Good observation!

    As you said, it is hard to make an immediate impact at DE in this league. Only a handful of DE's make a full impact by their third year.

    Exactly. It's evident his motor never stops running. His sacks aren't gifts from the heaven, this is all effort and hard work.


    I think having Leonard Little come back for another year would be good, there seems to be good chemistry with the D-line at times. Just need that big man in the middle.

    Re: Chris Long

    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...

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

    Chris Long Brings It
    by Molotov
    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!!
