This will be short and sweet.
1. Is Saffold really that detrimental to our offense? I mean obviously we are kind of at the shit end of the stick with our OL, especially since Long might not be ready to go Week 1, but is Saffold really a must sign? I understand he played really well at G, but it's almost a guarantee that the dude is going to miss at least 1 to 2 games a season. He hasn't played a full 16 game season since he was a rookie in 2010. Amendola was our best receiver before he left, and a major reason the Rams didn't resign him was due to the fact he can't stay on the field. Saffold is in a similar situation. He's going to be looking for good money, but should the Rams pay him the money he wants for a 10-12 game season? Especially since guards aren't as highly valued as tackles?
2. Can we stop with the posts about Sam Bradford against the salary cap? I understand from January to March there is literally nothing to talk about on here, simply because the most miniscule amount of information is leaked from the front office as to what their off season plans are, but come on. He's not going anywhere. I highly doubt they will rework his contract without seeing what he does next season. We can post about who we think the best back-up would be, or the best "to-be-groomed" QB is, but all these posts about Sam "on the bubble" or his contract extension or us trading/cutting him needs to stop. Of course he's on the bubble. He's on the bubble every year. Fisher isn't trading or cutting or even moving him from the starting position so we can stop talking about that. And an extension would surprise me this offseason since he only played half of last year. So how about it?
3. Is Clowney the best choice for the Rams? Sure everyone says "this kind of talent only comes around once in a decade" but I think that's just everyone eating up reporters bullshit. Seriously I can see the brown stains around your mouth. It's not a position of need for the Rams. If he was a FS or CB then sure, draft that dude without question. But the fact that we'd waste our #2 overall pick for a guy that potentially wont even start is stupid in my opinion. If we aren't going to trade or can't find an adequate trade scenario, then why not sure up the best talent at a position we actually need? WR, FS, CB, OL. Any of these can be taken. I mean if we're talking about taking Clowney at #2 why not Manziel or Bridgewater if he's available. If we draft either of them they wouldn't start over Bradford, so what's the difference. We need a backup QB more than we need DL so why does it make sense that we'd draft a lineman with out 1st pick? I'm not saying I want to take a QB at #2 but it seems equal to taking a defensive lineman, regardless of talent. I say either trade the pick or take the best position that we actually need. Clowney will not make the difference in the slightest between the rams making the playoffs and not making them. I;m tired of the talk such as "OMG IF WE DRAFT CLOWNEY SUPERBOWL HERE WE COME!" It's idiotic.
