  • I'll buy a drink at Jakes to the person...

    Who comes the closest to picking the score of the UM vs. VaTech game on Saturday (what a great appetizer to main course of the Rams home opener!).

    Of course, you'll have to beat my pick...

    UMiami 27

                  What's the interest on waiting a year to get a drink??

                        *Final* AR Complete Round 1 Mock
                        by AvengerRam_old
                        This is my story, and I'm sticking to it!

                        1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
                        Don't be fooled by reports of negotiations with Mario Williams. He's just a pawn to get Bush's price down a bit. Bush is the "can't not take this guy" prospect in this draft.

                        2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

                        Saints will get a guy who will be an impact rookie, and will a Pro Bowl selection within a few years. OTs in the NFC South will hate this pick.

                        3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
                        For months, everyone has tried to find a reason to downgrade Young. The bottom line is, he's an exceptional performer on the football field, which is all that really should matter.

                        4. New York Jets: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
                        D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be the safer and, perhaps, the more logical choice, but the Jets are still a Broadway team, and Davis will make a lot more highlight film plays.

                        5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, OhioState
                        With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

                        6. San Francisco Niners: Michael Huff, DB, Texas
                        Niners will be a bit thrown by the selection of Davis at number 4, as he was likely their target. Huff will be touted as the next Ronnie Lott, though he's a different type of player.

                        7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
                        Leinart would have been the first pick in 2005, but he'll drop to number 7 in this draft. No problem – with his Hollywood image, he'll make up the money in endorsement contracts.

                        8. Buffalo Bills: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
                        Bills are surprised by Ferguson's fall, and will eagerly snatch him up. He'll start as a rookie, obviously.

                        9. Detroit Lions: Antonio Cromartie, DB, FSU
                        There always seem to be surprises coming out of Detroit, and this year is no exception. Cromartie's stock has been shooting up in recent weeks following his workout.

                        10. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
                        Many teams (not the Rams, though) will try to trade up for Cutler but, in the end, he'll head to the Southwest to be Kurt Warner's short-term understudy.

                        11. St. Louis Rams: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
                        Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy… will four times be the charm? Ram fans hope so, and Ngata is certainly a good prospect. Maybe the best prospect of the bunch.

                        12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
                        Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland. They would have been happy with Ngata too.

                        13. Baltimore Ravens: Winston Justice, OT, USC
                        Will be a good RT initially, and will be the heir apparent to Jonathan Ogden, who is now 32. A good value pick.

                        14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
                        While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his...

                        The Flow Chart of Doom
                        by AvengerRam_old
                        It starts at the top...

                        THE OWNER
                        She's ill now, so obviously she
                        can't do anything to impact the
                        team's success. But even when
                        she was well, does anybody think
                        she added anything? Perhaps she
                        had a passion for the attention that
                        winning brings, but not for the
                        passion required to bring a winner.
                        |
                        |
                        THE FRONT OFFICE
                        Manned by individuals who know the
                        cost of everything, but the value of
                        nothing. Their talents are in business,
                        not football. Add a substantial helping
                        of ego, which has prevented them from
                        bringing in a true GM, and talent evaluation
                        has become a "blind squirrel" scenario. And
                        who's going to change this? Certainly not
                        the current owner.
                        |
                        |
                        THE COACHING STAFF
                        You get what you pay for. Pay for top notch
                        coaches, that's what you get. Hire from the
                        bargain rack, and sometimes you get lucky and
                        find a gem, but more often, you get what we have
                        now... a mess. The coaching staff is there to get
                        the most out of whatever talent is available. That
                        is not happening. And who's going to change this?
                        Certainly not the "bottom line first" front office.
                        |
                        |
                        THE TEAM
                        Talent levels in the NFL these days are fairly
                        close, even between the top and the bottom teams.
                        As a result, no team is ever too far away from rising
                        to the level of a playoff team. The Rams have been,
                        it seems close to that level for years. But who will get them
                        there? Certainly not the coaching staff, which lacks the
                        ability to maximize the talent we have. Certainly not
                        the front office, which knows money but not talent.
                        Certainly not the owner, who adds nothing to this team.

                        It all starts at the top for the Rams. Scott Linehan is a symptom of an overall problem that won't be corrected until the FLOW CHART OF DOOM is cut from the top. Get a new owner, hire a true football GM, bring in a new coaching staff, enhance the talent...

                        That, my friends, is the only formula that will bring sustained success.

                        AR Mock Draft (3/22/06 Update)
                        by AvengerRam_old
                        With some more free agent signings and a big trade, its time for an update:

                        1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
                        While there will be talk about a trade, and concerns about Bush's ability to play on every down, in the end the Texans won't want to be the team that passes on a guy with Bush's talent.

                        2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

                        Green Bay will push to trade up here, but the Saints will stick with the pick and take Williams to replace departed DE Darren Howard.

                        3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
                        After losing steam following Wonderlikgate, Young will impress in workouts and will be the choice to replace aging Steve McNair.

                        4. New York Jets: D'Brickshaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
                        The Jets need to build from the ground up. LT is a good place to start.

                        5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
                        With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

                        6. San Francisco Niners: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
                        Alex Smith needs more targets, and Davis is the top receiver in the draft, despite playing the TE position.

                        7. Oakland Raiders: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
                        Al Davis may take a shot with Aaron Brooks, but he'll want a contingency plan. Cutler too good to pass up.

                        8. Buffalo Bills: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
                        After failing to land Ryan Pickett, the Bills will add Ngata to bolster run defense.

                        9. Detroit Lions: Michael Huff, S, Texas
                        Huff will start from day 1 at FS and could be one of the top defensive rookies in 2006.

                        10. Arizona Cardinals: Matt Leinert, QB, USC
                        Leinert's free-fall ends in an unlikely spot. Kurt Warner asks "why me" as yet another franchise QB is drafted to sit in his shadow.

                        11. St. Louis Rams: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
                        Ram add this tackling machine to their improving LB corps. Will start on the strong side with Witherspoon (MLB) and Pisa Tinoisamoa (OLB).

                        12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
                        Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland.

                        13. Baltimore Ravens: Antonio Cromartie, CB, FSU
                        Another Seminole who has improved his draft status with impressive workouts.

                        14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
                        While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

                        15. Denver Broncos: Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
                        Broncos need help at DE. Hali's workouts don't tell the story. He's a player.

                        16. Miami Dolphins: Winston Justice, OT, USC
                        Having signed Will Allen, Dolphins can turn to the offensive line and select a player who can protect Duante Culpepper.

                        17. Minnesota Vikings: Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
                        A good value as DBs fall to the middle...

                        AR's UPDATED Complete First Round Mock (3/14/06 Version)
                        by AvengerRam_old
                        With some big signings and trades, I thought it was time for an update. This may be outdated again in a week, but here's my current projection:

                        1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
                        While there will be talk about a trade, and concerns about Bush's ability to play on every down, in the end the Texans won't want to be the team that passes on a guy with Bush's talent.


                        2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State
                        Green Bay will push to trade up here, but the Saints will stick with the pick and take Williams to replace departed DE Darren Howard.

                        3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
                        After losing steam following Wonderlikgate, Young will impress in workouts and will be the choice to replace aging Steve McNair.

                        4. New York Jets: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
                        I still see Cutler being selected above Matt Leinert, and the Jets will be glad to get him.

                        5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
                        With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

                        6. San Francisco Niners: D'Brickshaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
                        They will be tempted to go with monster TE Vernon Davis, but Alex Smith won't mind having Ferguson watching his back.

                        7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
                        Al Davis won't be able to pass up the California Golden Boy. With Kerry Collins gone, Leinart could be a starter as a rookie.

                        8. Buffalo Bills: Vernon Davis, TE, Georgia
                        J.P. Losman could use a big, fast target over the middle to help with his development. Davis is a great fit.

                        9. Detroit Lions: Michael Huff, S, Texas
                        Huff will start from day 1 at FS and could be one of the top defensive rookies in 2006.

                        10. Arizona Cardinals: Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
                        Cardinals need a pass rusher. Hali a bit of a reach here, but he should compete for a starting job as a rookie.

                        11. St. Louis Rams: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
                        Ram add this tackling machine to their improving LB corps. Will start on the strong side with Witherspoon (MLB) and Pisa Tinoisamoa (OLB).

                        12. Cleveland Browns: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
                        Browns will be thrilled to see the massive Ngata here at this point. Will be a great fit as the NT.

                        13. Baltimore Ravens: Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green
                        The addition of the fast-rising Jacobs will mark the beginning of the end for Kyle Boller.

                        14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
                        While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

                        15. Atlanta Falcons: Broderick Bunkley, DT, FSU
                        Falcons need help in run defense. Bunkley should contribute early.
