Trading just for the sake of trading? Knee jerk reactions? Meanwhile we haven't had a first round pick since 2016 and won't have one till 2022? I remember when draft day was the highlight of our year. Then we started winning. Now we're not winning and I was looking forward to the draft again. Until we no longer have a first round pick. We could be screwed with a non winning season and no draft pick to look forward to.

28-11 with McVay as coach. I’m not thinking we’re drafting top 10 for a long time. And this is a top 3 talent

Not winning? Coming off 2 great seasons including a Super Bowl appearance. This year they are three and three. You give up easily don’t you?

Its my defense mechanism after all the abysmal years of losing. Expect the worst. If it doesn't happen then be glad. If it does, well, I expected it so I ain't too disappointed.

I'm right there with you, Snack. That's been my attitude for so long it's hard to shake just because we have a couple of fantastic years.

Go Rams!

Not the response I was expecting but I understand where you’re coming from. I have to fight some of that myself.

But this is a new regime. I believe in Sean McVay. He might be struggling now, but think about it. He’s 33 years old and has already had enormous success. Let’s give him some time. I like our future with him at the helm. Maybe I’m wrong and will change my mind eventually but it’s much much too early for that.

This is so much cooler than wait for next year.

The Rams are making changes to an already talented group to get better as a team.

I like it much better than draft talk in October. 😎

I've tried to be more positive lately, but in the back of my mind I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Even when they were 8-0. I think only 4 winning seasons from 1990 to 2016 has jaded me. I keep expecting them to turn back into a pumpkin. Something about that last loss seemed to take a lot out of me. It brought back memories of the bad times. When I expected bad things to happen because they always did happen.

Sort of feel like they have to... they’re still trying to sell tickets at the new stadium.

This is, I think, part of the trade. I don’t always buy into that kind of thing, but it fits here.
