We have no idea if Sammy is healthy, also at least we traded him to LA. Those Rams fans who are laughing in LA could all car pool together in the same Tesla car.
Most non biased parties say that it wasn't a terrible trade for us. Reading this board you'd assume that everyone is saying it's terrible trade of historic proportions.

Thats because most fans here think Sammy has a bust in canton already. They cant or willfully wont seperate potential from what has actually occurred.

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.

Sad. You must be real bored trying to rile people up around here, but it is working; so I will give you that. 

 

Who am I to piss in your cheerios? Seems like you probably like pissy cheerios. 

 

As for the thread/post, I really don't care what the 27 Rams fans think about the trade. Everyone around here seems very concerned what other fans think, and I really wonder why that is. We would beat them up in the stadium, but somehow their internet opinions are prophetic and substansial?

As a fan of Sammy isn't it ok to be happy that he is welcomed by the new fan base and appreciated?

Sure, if it's not at the expense of the team and fanbase you claim to support. That just makes it self-serving.

It's called a different perspective. You seem to rejoice in losing a player of Sammy's caliber for a backup corner. Is EJ Gaines talent level equal to Watkins?  From what I've been reading, nobody PAID to have an opinion on NFL talent level thinks so. Yet I don't get why so many of you are happy to see him leave. 

 

He's a young talent who could have helped this team WIN in the future. He is a 1st round talent. We got back a 6th round talent for him. We lost. It seems professional writers and people on the other team thinks they won the trade. 

 

Let us flip the perspective for a second and answer me this:

 

Would you welcome Julio Jones if Atlanta wants to trade him to us for EJ Gaines and a 2nd? Or Odell? Or Mike Evans?
