  • Rams sign Jamarcus Russell as DT

    Its a good thing that the forums are down and nobody can read this, given the absurdity of my thread title.

    I can just see our readers, wondering what is in this thread but frustrated as they can only read the title!

    What?

    We're back on?

    Um... never mind! Nothing to see here!

    La dee da dee da....

    I suggest this a couple of weeks ago. It's really not that much of a stretch (no pun intended). He's nearly 300 pounds already, and we probably wouldn't penalize him as much for keeping skittles on him during game time. We could play him at nose to take up space. Think of the possibilities!

        Put him in a wetsuit & let him waddle-patrol the levees as flood prevention. Just plop that blubber butt down wherever you see a leak, J-Mac.

            Jamarcus Russell and Ryan Leaf went to different schools together so this is no surprise.

              I really wanted Barron to be a productive tackle in the NFL, but at this point its just not happening. Sure he was a "starting" LT. But he was not a good LT.

              Now Bobby, as many have said, is playing ou of position. He is not the freak speed rusher you need on the outside in a 3-4, and I guess he never hot used to being a MLB.

              I'm still keeping the faith,

              GO BOBBY CARPENTER, GO RAMS

                we essentially got one disappointment (Carpenter) and gave another up (Barron) in hopes that in different systems they can produce according to the expectations when drafted.

                according to cowboy fans they are as happy to part with him as we are with Barron, both which are penalty making machines. Maybe if we try to get AJ Hawk this guy will produce ;)

                In Spags We Trust

                BTW: I noticed we are turning this into a Barron/Carpenter thread. Oh well Jamarcus would make a great RT.

                  I personally think barron was unfairly malinged. Is he terrific? No. Is he good enough to win with? In my opinion, yes. Barron was a left tackle that played his entire career out of position until last year. One year guys at left tackle.

                  The rams have tons of problems. Was barron one of them? In my opinion, no. Could he be upgraded? Of course. But there were a ton of other glaring weaknesses that were a lot more pressing in my view.

                  Once the decision was made to not resign him, i dont think carpenter is bad value for him. Its one teams problem for another.

                  Bottom line, i think barron is a starting caliber nfl tackle who still has plenty of upside as a left tackle as he settles into the position full time.

                      Alex barron was the second-most penalized player in the NFL (behind Robert Gallery) before the start of last season. Also, he always seemed to commit the false starts at backbreaker times for the team. He wouldn't just blow the play, but kill the momentum. Still, though, I hate the Dallas Cowboys.

                        With a name like Carpenter, perhaps he can build into a good LB for us.

                          Alex Barron would get beat by Sasquatch on Jeopardy (and that's without the false starts included).

                            I'll bet Russell would make a good hockey goalie. Can't get the puck past him if he fills the entire net.

                              Russell is bigger than his whole offensive line.

                                Rams sign DT Trevor Laws

                                https://twitter.com/#!/caplannfl/sta...37363702730752

                                Rotoworld's take: "A rotational lineman in Philly last season, Laws averaged about 25 snaps per game and recorded 20 tackles with one sack. A 4-3 nose, Laws goes 6-foot-1 and a tick over 300 pounds. He'll compete for playing time next to Kendall Langford. Pro Football Focus has graded Laws as a solid run defender over the past four years. He seemed to plateau after a four-sack 2010 season, though."

                                What about a Raven DT?

                                What about looking at A. Franklin from the Ravens. He could rotate with J. Kennedy, which would keep Jimmy fresh and stronger. Thoughts?:l
