STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING
I've been meaning to write a post for a while. Said post has to do with the most hated people in the history of the Rams organization. So with that said, I would like to tell you about a few people I extremely dislike.
The Offensive Line Busts.
Jason Smith, Jacob Bell, Alex Barron, Jason Brown, so on and so on. Drive killing penalty machines. These men are all awful for obvious reasons. Some are injury prone and others couldn't block my grandma and she's a box of ashes in a closet right now. Some were drafted like the amazing Jason Smith and Alex Barron, two men who were drafted highly in the first round and had the same result. They sucked. 19th and 2nd overall picks respectively and both sucked up tons of money and cap space for zero production. Those picks could have been used on players like Andre Smith, Alex Mack, Percy Harvin, Eugene Monroe, Michael Crabtree, Aaron Rodgers, Roddy White, or Logan Mankins just to name a few. That just makes these mistakes more painful. Could anything be more painful than that in the world of football? What about paying top dollar for players who you think will elevate your team to a higher level? Men, who you believe, will solidify positions on your team and make it better. I mean, they are PROVEN VETS, right?. Well Lets look at Jason Brown and Jacob Bell.
Jason Brown, a fourth round draft pick, was considered one of the best centers coming into the 2005 draft along with Chris Spencer. He spent his first two seasons in Baltimore behind veteran starter Mike Flynn. In 2007 he started 16 games at guard and then in 2008 he started 16 games at center and headed into free agency as a star offensive linemen. He visited the Rams on the first day of free agency and became the richest center in the league, being paid $37.5 million with $20 million guaranteed over 5 years. The league actually threw us a second chance at fixing this mistake as they disapproved the contract on March 10th, but the Rams and Smith fixed it by March 12th. What followed was years of disappointment and an eventual releasing of Smith on March 12, 2012. Exactly 4 years after his big money contract was approved by the Rams and the league
Then there's this fuckin' guy too.
That man in the background deserves another drink.
Round 5 pick number 138 and drafted by Fisher's Titans. Many sports websites, including ESPN, named him to all rookie teams. Running backs like Travis Henry, Chris Brown, and LenDale White all ran for over 1,000 yards with him in front of them and protected Vince Young during his OROY season. In 2006 he was a large part of the Titans 5th ranked running game which had 5 games of over 200 yards rushing. In 2007 the Titans were 5th in rushing yet again and Bell destroyed any questions about his durability as he played a full 16 games and one extra playoff game. The Rams then gave him a 6 year, $36 million dollar contract, $13 million of that was guaranteed. He only lived out half of that contract before being released in 2011 and eventually retiring that same year.
The Young Sky-Walker
While remembering these people, I have looked back at some old posts on this site and it's almost embarrassing. I can't believe now that we got so excited over people like Zac Diles and Mike Sims Walker.
But who could blame us for being excited over this guy? He had 2 straight seasons with at least 7 TD's and was a red zone machine. Well, Jags fans warned us about how he disappears in games and his injuries and so on. We dismissed it as angry fans or by saying he had David Garrard as his QB. Well I would like to apologize to those Jaguar fans right now. You were right and I wish you well in the future. This guy sucks. Now he's trying to latch on with the talent depleted Jets. Even on a WR corps as bad as theirs I doubt he will stick on their 53 man roster.
Craig Dahl and King Kontinent.
The man is literally color blind, which could explain his awful play. Forget the fact he's a niner and forget about that "tipped play' bullshit. This guy is, was, and always has been a bad player and how he still draws an NFL paycheck is beyond me. He sucks in coverage and can't tackle. So much has been said about him that I feel like I'm just repeating what others have said. The fact of the matter is that he suck and should have been replaced by Stewart a long time ago. Now lets talk some Justin King
Yet again, so much has been said. We all know who he is and we all know he sucks. I remember a joke on here that went along the lines of "If Revis has an island then Justin has King Kontinent." Don't know why but that joke still sticks. Maybe it's because it's perfect. That joke is Justin King. His coverage is a joke and him ever being an NFL starter is a joke. I feel like he was drafted with an Al Davis mentality. "Look how fast he is!" Well, speed is a big part of football, but so are technique and skill, two things King never had.
That pun is almost as awful as his coaching.
And no, no it isn't a shame for the Giants. The Giants did fine without him. That stupid fucking headline perfectly, and unintentionally summed up his coaching career after the Giants. There was so much hope with him too. The first season was a disaster but that 7-9 season with our new rookie QB seemed so... Hopeful. I felt like things were good. We were going to have an elite defense with this guy and our offense would be damn good too. Then the next year happend. This clapping moron had no idea what he was doing and spewed out bullshit cliches at press conferences week after week. Then he went to the saints and made their defense the worst in the league. Good going Spags.
Look at that fuckin guy. He looks like he should be on Fox news. His hair's stupid too. Snead has way better hair. Anyway, I will say this, Devaney's drafted SOME good talent. Bradford, JL55, Robert Quinn, Lance Kendricks, Pettis (Kinda) there are some good picks there. Outside of the first and second rounds though... That's a different story. Almost everything rounds 3-7 was worthless (Not you Jabara) and usually cut before the 3rd preseason game (Sorry Jabara). Him and Mike Tannenbaum amazed me with their inability to do anything in mid to late rounds. Spags and Billy probably had one brain cell between the two of them and drove this team into the ground.
Bronco fans agree. This guy sucks.
Let me stop for a second and say this, I don't actually hate any of these guys personally. All of the guys I have talked about previously in this post are just men I never want associated with this team ever again. I don't want them to be part of this team again no matter what and that goes double for this fucker right here. While I don't personally hate any of the previous entries, I do HATE this man. I hate him for so many god damn reasons. Let us begin.
First off, I remember there being so much optimism about this guy. Hell, I loved it when we hired him. "He led that undefeated, record breaking, Pats offense!" "He even made Kyle Orton look good!" "He's going to take Sam to the next level! Our offense is going to be amazing! Goodbye Pat Shurmur dink and dunk passes and hello deep vertical game!" Then we KICKED ASS in the preseason. Sure it was the preseason but the offense looked so crisp and explosive. We were killin' it. We picked up his complex offense in a shortened offseason and were going to win the division, no problem. Then I was calling for him to be fired four weeks into the regular season.
The man's play calling was awful and he failed to compromise and change it to fit the team better. He destroyed Bradford's progression and fucked up his ankle in the process. Remember that Seahawk game at the end of the season? Bradford's ankle is so bad that he can't walk without wincing. He can't plant his feet so his accuracy is off and he can't throw as deep. So let's just keep him in there and get hammered behind a shitty offensive line. Lets have him throw to receivers who can't separate and can't catch. Hell, let's also call plays that take a shit load of time to develop! Throw deep to DX on 4th and 1. Great play call! How couldn't we have converted that! It was the perfect situation for that play! Our offense got shutout twice that year. -214 point differential. We scored 13 or less points in 10 games. Why was it so bad? How could he make the Broncos offense look so good but can't even make ours look decent or below average? Our offense was downright terrible. I also blame Spags for part of this too because he didn't have either the brains or balls to step in and try to fix or change the offense. The fact is that McDaniels wanted nothing more than a paycheck and then bolted to New England for a chance to win a superbowl and that just pissed me off. If I was in a room with McDaniels right now I would... Well, let's just say that there would be a crime committed.
Then I go on bleacher report today and see an article in which the writer ranked him as the 3rd best offensive coordinator in the NFL. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT! Because he's doing "well" with the Patriots? Bullshit. He isn't a part of the Pats success and he never has been. Belicheck is the reason that team goes and he can hire any OC he wants and he won't suffer because of it. The pats weren't hurtin' before McD was there and there sure as hell weren't suffering after he left. He's a cog in the machine and always has been. He's not an offensive genius and he sure as hell isn't a good play caller either. If Bradford busts (I don't think he will) but if he does, I will put almost 100% of the blame on this egotistical, tantrum throwing, jackass. So with that said, go ahead and tell me some people associated with the Rams that you... Strongly dislike.
