Like Lambs to the Slaughter . . .

Looks like LA GM Les Snead is in panic mode already this season. After an underwhelming 3-0 start, they hit the skids with 3 straight losses. So, naturally they are trading like mad to shore up their O line and fix their defensive backfield. In a series of stunning moves, the Rams traded a 5th round pick to the Brownies for center, and wasted first pick of the 2nd round, Austin Corbitt; traded starting CB Marcus Peters to the Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young; and the kicker, trading away TWO 1st round picks, and a 4th round pick in the 2021 draft.

Yeah, I get that the Rams have suffered some injuries, notably, Clay Matthews and Aqib Talib, but they just mortgaged their future for a band-aid fix. A VERY expensive band-aid fix. Ramsey is on the last year of his rookie deal, so, what happens after the season ends?  Are they going to pony up? Because they already have Goff and Gurley on mega-deals. More than likely, they will be forced to let him go, so Ramsey comes as a 10-game rental for 2 #1s!!

And Corbitt, who was a huge disappointment (worst draft pick in last year’s draft according to a Cleveland front office guy) couldn’t beat out Eric Kush. The same Eric Kush that Snead cut 2 years earlier. And the revolving door at CB for them has been dizzying.

Still and all, I like it. The Rams appear to be scared of the draft and have given up on it for the next couple seasons. And their contract situation will be disastrous very soon.

  • Aaron Donald: 6 yr(s) / $135,000,000
  • Andrew Whitworth: 3 yr(s) / $33,750,000
  • Todd Gurley: 4 yr(s) / $57,500,000
  • Jared Goff: 4 yr(s) / $134,000,000
  • Brandin Cooks: 5 yr(s) / $81,000,000
  • Aqib Talib: 6 yr(s) / $57,000,000

Hah! they are paying 6 guys about $100 million. They are fucked. I don’t see how they afford Ramsey after this season, and since they already blew their shot in last year’s Super Bowl, I don’t see them returning this year. They may not even make the playoffs at this rate. And they gave away TOW #1 and a 4th round pick for a 10-game rental!

Hey, I love a rivalry as much as the next fan, but to see these guys implode in a hurry is always a good time.

    I’ve got plenty to say on the subject of LA today. If you want to read me spewing some right wing idiocy check me out on the Outsider. Hey, we let Charlie back in so we’ll let anyone in, I guess.

    I am having more fun watching the Rams operate than I am keeping up with National politics. How things can change on a dime is totally amazing to me. In the last couple of weeks the Rams and the stinkin Dodgers have just warmed my heart. Now if the Lakers implode that would be the trifecta.

    It warms my heart that spam boy has had to create something like 350 new emails to keep up his trolling.

    hyuk!

    What a fucking loser.

    Wow. That’s some crazy shit. Very cool.

    Don’t even think about jumping on the KC bandwagon tonight. We’ve banned all Niner fans from rooting for our team. Except when we punk SF in Arrowhead again and again, that is.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Sorry, your season just went down the tubes, skippy. Maybe your knee will be better by the time you miss the playoffs. You are the kiss of death. And yeah, we’re undefeated. The Chefs ain’t going anywhere anymore.

    Didn’t see Mahomes go down. Was it bad?

  11. unca_chuck says:

    The fucking Broncos suck hard. I think Mahomes will be ok.They popped his kneecap back into place. Maybe 3-4 weeks out.

    At what point does Denver shitcan Elway? They are awful awful awful.

    • Winder says:

      By the time I turned the game on Mahomes was already out so I don’t know. i think the only reason Elway’s still there is because of the history. They have made some piss poor decisions in the draft/ FA and it shows.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Deebo Samuels looks to miss the Skins game so we signed Deontay Burnett.Yeah that Deontay Burnett.I guess he played for the Jets at some point.

    This blog has officially gone to hell. Meanwhile, I’ve posted more vitally important links on the Outsider, your 2020 Trump re election party blog

  18. Winder says:

    NJ- Everyone knew Trump was a crook long before he became President. It’s a group of 1%ers and the Senate who feeds him. They should be the ones charged with treason and murder.

      Fukn embarrassing.

      Nothing much matters to them but profits.
      Sad that the USA is taking it in the teeth while allies shake their heads.

    • Winder says:

      All he wants are a few statues and monuments of himself, kinda surprised the Senate hasn’t authorized those yet.
