Can't argue there.

Ya. Marrone is ok coach but clueless for his own ways. Rex loves to talk but way more clueless. McDermott and others seem bright too early to say as of yet.

So hilarious if it wasn't so sad. Fans here are conditioned to hate talented players and excuse the front office for incompetence when it comes to their contract status. Then theyll complain that they didn't pay the backup RB.

Thats right. its like 1984 

 

The one dude has a point about WRs dying in Buffalo. Look at Sammy's career between Marrone playing him in preseason with cracked ribs to Rex bringing him back too soon from foot surgery. We mismanaged a great talent

 

ugh....makes the Boldin signing look...ughh..not good..

So true. Examples: Happy Sammy is gone, but love Taylor. Lol

Happy Stevie was gone but loved Losman. Lol

Happy Schobel was gone but showed Kelsay more love. Lol.

Barely appreciated Lee Evans. Loved the idea of Rex being hired amd some felt it was to soon when he was fired. Loved when the Bills got rid of Marshawn. Gotta love this fan base and their love for losing.

The Rams have enough fans for a message board? I figured they could get by with a group text.

 

They got more than three boards. After three I stopped looking.

 

Their reactions are all similar. there's a 5% of fans who are having their panties in a knot over the 2nd round pick. 95%+ are pretty much like the above. 


Go watch LA then. Go away. You have no dignity coming to a Bills site and trolling their fans. Their are many other fans of teams here. Icebowl67, the Boston Pats dude, the NH #1 Pats Fan, Jimmy Spags, etc. They are treated with respect cuz they also HAVE respect.

Learn it or bounce.

 

I am a fan and I can be critical of the players, coaches,  team front office and general manager. WHO SAID YOU GOTTA LIKE EVERY CHOICE EVERY MOVE THEY MAKE. ITS MY CHOICE. DEAL WITH IT.

They sound like Raven fans after the Bills traded them McGahee.

Seemed to help the Ravens a bit making the playoffs 3 out of 4 years he was there. I'd be friggin pumped as hell too if the Bills picked up Watkins for a 2nd rd pick.

 

One of the Rams biggest problems was having zero WR help for young QB play and Rex Ryan Jr. as HC(Fisher).

Woods and Watkins already know how to play in a BS passing game. They might just be able to turn Goff into something now.

The biggest takeaway from this thread is that the Rams still have fans. Who knew?

Did I miss something? The Fischer lost his job because he didn't want to play the rookie QB. The rookie QB looked about as good as EJ looked.
I am a UGA fan so I can attest that Gurley is the real deal. Seems to me Watkins is going to a sunnier Buffalo.

The LA Rams will make the playoffs before we do.

Of course the Rams fans are stoked. Why wouldn't they be? They got a great deal, and an elite, healthy WR.

 

I'm going to guess that Goff is pretty happy, too.

Their reaction and enthusiasm has made me feel better about the trade. Sammy is going where his talents are appreciated. He's gone to a bigger and better market. Rams now potentially have their big three in Gurley, Sammy, Goff. If McVay is half the genius many proclaim, they will be a fun team to watch.

 

I am sure they would not mind you jumping on bandwagon.

I know he's been underwhelming so far. Let's see what McVay can do. I still think they got issues with their offensive line. It's not a complete roster by any means. If that O line struggles, Goff will struggle. He doesn't seem to have that command and confidence you need in a QB. Not that it's a necessity.

Yeah, as a back up. Not the "stud" RB they were crowing about. So Sammy is going to be the #2 WR behind Woods?

Woods and Watkins could not elevate TT's play, what makes you think they will suddenly elevate Goff's play?

come back to us at the end of 2017 when Sammy has played 4 games and is now hitting free agency.


Posts like this make me wonder if some fans recognize any semblance of reality.

In his most injury-plagued season, he started 8 games.

Prior to 2016, he'd started 29/32 NFL games.

They're laughing at us.

 

When he asks for 90m+  for 6 yrs after playing in 10 or 12 games and making 40 or 50 catches we can laugh ;)

Yeah Woods looked  like he was earning his 8m per last night.

 

First 2 targets equal a drop and a fumble although the fumble got a Rams roll and Cooper Jockstrap recovered it for a look what I found TD.
