      Relax, it's only one player. The right time to start getting into panic mode is if we get 5 more low tier players from the FA and not get Suh or Bradford (through trading our first pick to Tampa or Detroit)

        I wish I could disagree. But wishing a reality are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.

          The only thing I can say is that Devaney and Spags are not looking for the quick fix. They're trying to build a consistent winning foundation. The way to do that is through the draft and a free agent here and there. I sure hope they know what they are doing? I do know this though, it worked for Jimmy Johnson and his Dallas Cowboys. Patience is a virtue.

              They need to nail the draft it’s only day one in FA but picks like Feely is not going to get it done. I did not want then to get into a biding war and over pay for some FA but I was hoping for some aggressive moves. You mention Patience is a virtue LaramO but I wonder how long these guys think they got. If another fruitless FA season come and go and another 1-15 or 3-13 season, are we here again next season saying they on the right track.

                You know why other teams always seem to sign the big free agents? Because there are 31 other teams! There has been 1 big free agent signed - that means 31 out of 32 teams did not sign Peppers. Relax guys, it's less than 24 hours in and this is how free agency is for the vast majority of the teams every year.

                  Explain to me how a 33 year old 3rd string quarterback helps build the foundation.

                    Although Feely is not 'all that', he's definitely better than Boller ... and I'll bet THAT'S who he was brought in to replace. Still hope we take Suh. PLEASE!!!
                    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

                      How dare you bring reason and sanity to this sacred festival of lunacy?!?

                        Jesus Christ I can't believe Im hearing this crap over one signing. Feeley is a quality backup with experience and knows the system in and out. Great replacement for Boller and can teach a young rookie the system whenever he gets in here.

                        There were not "a lot" of free agents this offseason with the uncapped year and the one's that were out there had 31 better teams throwing money at them. We can't get them all. Also did we forget that we are building for the future and looking for guys that are 27 or younger and not 30 year old runningbacks. Yes Feeley is 33, but I think its safe to assume he wasn't brought in to lead this team for 16 games...

                        Please think before you post and realize there is a reason you aren't the GM of an NFL franchise. Did we forget that the Rams were the most aggresive in FA last year practically and had some nice signings with Jason Brown and Butler, players who fit the bill of young with upside.

                        First day of FA and people are flying off the handles, I can't believe it. If it helps your stupidity, the Rams were one of the first on the phones when Sproles was rumored to be on the FA block. They are looking for young talent that will help them build a consistent winner and not a one year wonder with older veterans with bloated contracts.

                        It seems the Rams want their veterans in place to be stopgaps and teach the younger players, and have this continue in a cycle and build a consistent winner.

                        Incredible how worked up people are getting over an actually fairly solid signing on THE FIRST DAY of FA.

                                by RamsFanSam
                                This offseason, there was much activity and many rumors surrounding the Rams.

                                Depending on your feelings about certain matters, the offseason has been very good or very bad.

                                But, one thing I think we can ALL agree upon is the fact that the Rams are, for good or for bad, the same old Rams.

                                What I am speaking of is free agency. For the past several years, the Rams have cut serviceable players, of which many were picked up by other teams - and those players went on to have several years of high productivity. Of course, not all have been successful.

                                But one thing that REALLY gets me is how the Rams seem to forget that free agency isn't only about cutting players who are overpaid - it's also about renegotiating with productive players to lower their cap impact AND picking up players who fill needs that our team has. It seems that the Rams don't understand this.

                                I'm not saying we should jump on some over-rated high dollar player. I am saying that there are always some players in FA that are what we need - and it seems like we never look at them.

                                I thought the Rams would try harder to make the team better since they will be in a bigger spotlight this season...but it seems that the Rams aren't as interested in improvement as they are in just being near the glitz and glamour of LA.

                                Hopefully I am wrong, but it seems that renegotiating a couple of contracts would have been in the team's best interest, as would at least taking a look at a couple of free agents. They don't have to be big names to make a huge impact - many lesser-known players have been the key pieces of the puzzle that were missing....

                                I'm not Excited for Free Agency any more. The more I think about it. Why would we go for a big name free agent? We never have and probrably never will. Why wouldn't we sign some old players or busts to medium sized contracts? I'm not to excited anymore for free agency also because we have not been pursuing any big name D free agents and probrably won't. Here is too another crappy year of free agency:clanram:

                                I am honestly disgusted in the st louis rams and there pure stupidity. For years and years now we have settled for losing like its not a problem. We have watched huge free agents hit the market and have done nothin about it. It has been clearly obvious for years that we do not have a true number one receiver at all and we have not budged. 1-28 is our record and we do nothing. When is the last time this team signed a HUGE free agent deal? Probably marshall faulk and what happened? O wait superbowl! And as far as character issues. Numerous players have had issues and signed with new teams and had stellar careers. Im so sick of losing. VJ is on the market. Go snatch him up. He is valuable to the development of bradford and he will automatically make this team light years better. If they dont pursue him hard and land him this team will not compete point blank. What do the play off contenders like the jets saints packers patriots and vikings have in common? They all hit the free agent market hard and they compete. Moral of this story. Were losing and to be blunt we suck so dang it do somethin about it. Talent=wins

                                In this, their unfortunate season of imperfection, the Rams get no breaks. Whatever can go wrong usually does go wrong.

                                On Monday afternoon, Steve Spagnuolo had just finished running through the injury report from the Rams latest defeat when he paused for a moment to stare at the slip of paper that was chock full of names and assorted bumps and bruises.

                                "Wow this thing really is pretty long," he said, only half-joking.

                                There are other places in the pro football universe, like Indianapolis and New Orleans, where they contemplate the ramifications of trying to get through their schedule unblemished. Every NFL talking head, talk-show host and ex-player and coach has an opinion about the value of chasing a perfect season.

                                Oh, to be so lucky. The Rams haven't been in that exclusive neighborhood in nearly a decade. Way over here on the darker side of the NFL, the imperfect Rams — the worst team in pro football at 1-12 — just ponder more creative ways to suffer.

                                And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it does.

                                A swine flu mini-epidemic just swept through Rams Park.

                                Practice was canceled Thursday when a half-dozen players or so came to work suffering from swine flu symptoms.

                                You can't make this stuff up.

                                Q: Who where the only Rams players who didn't get the swine flu? MORE
                                A: The wide receivers. They haven't caught anything all year.

                                On Thursday afternoon, the only thing the Rams coach could do was laugh about the crazy circumstances. When someone asked him if he was worried that he might not have enough healthy players to suit up for Sunday's game with Houston, Spags chuckled. "I will be out there," he said. "Don't even send me down that direction."

                                This wretched season just keeps getting more curious, and I just happen to love it. Stop me if you've heard this before, but I have found the silver lining in this dark, dark cloud. At this point for the 1-12 Rams, losing is definitely a very good thing. If they're going to be bad, you might as well aim to be the worst team in the NFL, because losing does have its rewards.

                                If you're going to be this historically bad, the silver lining is knowing that there is a stud future Pro Bowl game-changing defensive tackle waiting for the Rams if they get the first pick in next spring's NFL draft and if they're only smart enough to take him.

                                Sometimes you get star-crossed when you are a bad team, and that is what has happened to the Rams the last few years. They get just bad enough to be near the top of the draft, but then they get stuck with having to draft a player with the second overall pick who isn't really a drop-dead, game-changing automatic stud.

                                This year, they...

                                This wretched season just keeps getting more curious, and I just happen to love it. Stop me if you've heard this before, but I have found the silver lining in this dark, dark cloud. At this point for the 1-12 Rams, losing is definitely a very good thing. If they're going to be bad, you might as well aim to be the worst team in the NFL, because losing does have its rewards.

                                If you're going to be this historically bad, the silver lining is knowing that there is a stud future Pro Bowl game-changing defensive tackle waiting for the Rams if they get the first pick in next spring's NFL draft and if they're only smart enough to take him.

                                Sometimes you get star-crossed when you are a bad team, and that is what has happened to the Rams the last few years. They get just bad enough to be near the top of the draft, but then they get stuck with having to draft a player with the second overall...
