All the hype about new additions to the team



I'll be the first to admit that I'm pretty pleased with what the Rams FO, coaches and players have shown us so far this year.  Last year I was pretty depressed as we headed into the regular season with guys like Marc Bulger, Alex Barron, Ritchie Incognito, Leonard Little, Vic Adenyaju and many others, since exited, holding down important positions. And, to be perfectly honest, I'm still concerned about Pat Shurmur's role. No matter how good the players, if you're play-calling is bland and predictable, you'll get beat. Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson and JL are spark plugs. If they can get some real effort from their teamates, we'll win some games.

One thing that has been a major irritation to me all off-season though, is the constant rumor-mill regarding the Rams picking up new players from other teams - some of whom are supposed to be good. Oddly enough, NO deals got worked out. Well, we open in 5 days and we're still short a quality b/u RB and number 1 WR.  But how long did I hear that Westbrook was gonna sign? Or that we were gonna get one of the Redskin's RB's. Then it was the TO saga. Of late it's been Vince Jackson or even Housh. I worry that we haven't been able to sign a couple of these guys. Let's face it. Darby's a backup's b/u. He can't successfully spell SJax. So we're gonna beat our prize stallion to death again or give up a lot of running downs to no gain. And, while I'm not sure Donnie Avery is really that good, he was among our top 1-2 receivers.  Sam needs a number 1 guy to throw too. Where would Tom Brady be without Moss and Welker?? 

And to be perfectly honest, we all know both the O-Line and D-Line need at least one more quality player each for us to be talking wildcard or NFC West Champions. Even so, I feel like I may get my money's worth outta Direct TV this season. Our team has improved and out schedule couldn't be easier. If little else, we gotta break the ten game winning streak the Sh*thawks have on us. Go Rams! The Chopper hath spoken.
