What’s up, Rams’ fans? There’s not a whole lot poppin’ today in the NFL world, but I’ll try to piece a few things together that maybe we can argue with each other about.
I thought this was pretty funny
Wow! Watch this kid hurdle Colin Kaepernick. https://t.co/KNeCBdiCup— Faux NFL Network (@FauxNFLnetwork) February 18, 2016
Speaking of Kaepernick, it’s a bit difficult to tell if Chip Kelly - the 49ers new head coach - really wants Kaep to be running his offense in 2016. And for that reason, I guess it’s worth speculating whether he’d be worth a look if he were to hit free agency.
You guys already know my thoughts on RG3. Who would you rather have?
I posted a few things on Twitter that I’m not sure ever made it on the site...
Did you know when the Rams’ released Long, JL55, and Cook, the NFL’s youngest team got rid of three out of it’s six oldest players? And some of these other old cats won’t be back either...
The #Rams are the youngest team in the NFL, and they just got rid of 3 of their 6 oldest players. More cuts coming. pic.twitter.com/la44vW83OM— Laquon Treadmill (@NoPlanB_) February 19, 2016
I think I rushed when I worded this one - and believe me I’ve heard from folks about it - but these are the first round picks made whilst Jeff Fisher has been the coach of an NFL team. What do you think about this bunch?

Have We Seen The Last of Johnny Football?
There’s apparently video footage of the altercation between Manziel and his girlfriend while at a Dallas Hotel recently. I don’t imagine it’s anywhere near as bad as the Ray Rice video [based on the story that’s been told], but then again, all domestic abuse is terrible.
The video will eventually be released. And if it does, and he busts her eardrum like the reports say, have we seen the last of Johnny Football?
Is Nick Foles not a Jaws reincarnate?
About the Draft...
Next Man Up?
Ian Rapoport tweeted this out earlier today. Is he right? I’m not sure I’m buying what he’s selling...

In the words of the great Zac Stacy, "Yikes"
