Jesus Mitchell Boggs has completely lost it. Absolutely brutal this season.

Argued with a friend today about Eddie Lacy and I'm curious because I know the last time I looked in here there were Lacy fans so here's my questions.

1. Do you really think Lacy is that much better than the other backs that we need to spend a 1st on him?

2. Do you think Lacy is a better player than other guys who will probably be available around 22? (Fluker, Elam, Cyprien, Cooper, etc)

3. Do you think RB is a bigger need than S, OLB, WR, or OG?

If you can answer yes to any of those questions, then hey I respect your opinion and just agree to disagree.

If the answer is no, then it makes no sense to draft Lacy, especially at 22 and personally I can't understand how the answer can't be no.

There is a strong possibility that we could get Lacy in the 2nd round. The 1sts should be used on either a safety, linebacker, receiver, or o-line.

I think Lacy's a good player, but I don't want the Rams to draft him. The guy is a muscle-bound freak and guys like that are injury-prone. He has dealt with one lingering issue after another and I feel that's only gonna get worse over time.

You could add a lot more to you offense by drafting Austin than you would Lacy. The guy returns kicks, can play RB, and is the fastest player coming into the NFL since Chris Johnson. I really hope hes there at 16.

Is this board more dead than the asylum, or does it just seem that way because everything gets lumped into a handful of threads over here? I'm actually starting to miss that place.

No, we just have more intelligent posters than random casual fans that like to blow up after one game claiming one player sucks forever because we lost a game. This forum is moderated much better than that forum where there is a new thread every hour even though there is a thread on the subject already up.

I'm one of the lone people NOT on the Tavon Austin bandwagon. The guys is only 5'8, he has short arms and the lowest vertical among any WR's in the draft. He's at best a one down type of player with special teams help. And he has never had as much RB experience as people say he has.

DeAndre Hopkins is my guy. Decent size, very consistent, and had good competition. Also, did anyone see his sport science thing on ESPN?? HIS HANDS!!!! AMAZING!!!

My dream Rams draft for the first 4 rounds

Trade: 16 for Atlanta's 30, 60, and a pick in 2014

22: DeAndre Hopkins WR (Ready to step in and contribute. Good upside and fairly safe)

30: Jonathan Cyprien S (Rams are very thin at safety to the point of non-existence. Great value meets need pick. Seems like a heavy hitting nasty player that our coaches would love)

46: Kyle Long OG (Rams reward Chris Long for restructuring his contract by bringing on his little brother. A little raw, but he has a lot of ability)

60: Stedman Bailey WR (By my count, the Rams lost 3 receivers from last season with Amendola, Gibson, and Smith not being back. Excellent route runner who knows how to find the endzone.)

78: Shamarko Thomas S (Remember what I said about the safety situation. Rams could use 2 goods ones. With this pick, they do just that)

113: Mike Gillislee RB (Rams didn't draft Pead in the 2nd round to give up on him already, but could use a back that complements him. Enter Gillislee who has relatively fresh legs and runs with power)

There is always the option to start posting on the main NHL boards or in the Lounge. Sometimes people just want to post because they're bored, I might start posting more in other areas myself. I love hockey and the Blues but cannot say I'm savvy with the business side of the game. I've learned a lot from our posters though, I appreciate the quality of our posters here.

And I really don't follow football, just hockey (and baseball loosely) for the most part, so yeah I got nothing to add for all the draft talk.

I could not agree more! Great draft!

But taking Hopkins at 16 and Cyprien at 22 will be my guess instead of trading down.

RANDOM TV REVIEW: I finished watching the first season of Justified. It's very well done, very well cast. Olyphant basically reprises his role of Sheriff Bullock in Deadwood with competing interests and unusual alliances. Only now the Wild West is eastern Kentucky, modern day. But since Deadwood is one of the all-time greatest shows, it's a smart choice to copy structurally. Very entertaining series. The villain is not as epic as Al Swearengen, but is a solid villain/strange alliances and it's not like we'll see any competition for Swearengen any time soon in any series so that's an unfair bar to reach. Recommend.

I agree. I don't understand why Rams and Cards talk is in the same thread as movie and tv talk. Doesn't make any sense and ruins the flow of the threads.

There is no point in having threads for every off-topic discussion.

This is a hockey forum. We really don't have to allow any OT threads, but we were trying to cater to our fan's interests.

You don't need a thread for EVERY off-topic discussion. Separate threads for topics that have similarity would be better. Grouping movies, music, entertainment, etc... in one thread and all other St. Louis sports in another would make more sense.

My dream draft includes getting the following:

16. Johnathan Cooper
22. TRADE with Buffalo
41. (From BUF) Keenan Allen
46. Monte Ball
71. (From BUF) Bacarri Rambo
78. Da'Rick Rogers
113. Zaviar Gooden

Knowing my luck, we will get none of them and be stuck with Lacy

Is Baccari Rambo seriously projected that low? If so, that is a steal.

3rd round. He'd be a great pickup for sure.
