I don't think this team has the luxury of wrapping up a spot early this year. It will probably come down to the last game or two. The playoffs are a different season. We do have a battle tested team. All we gotta do is there and anything can happen.


We are in the biz of watching and Hopi f the whiners and hags lose at least 2 games each making our games a giant them that much more important. I too think this comes down to the wire. And, we are probably looking at a wildcard spot at best.

Not necessarily. Are the niners going 13-3? 11-5? Are the hags doing the same? IMHO, the way the league schedule is playing out, 10-6 might be enough to win a division or three. 12-4, 11-5 a couple/three more. Right now half the division leaders have 2 losses and one of them (KC) just lost their QB. Again, it's clique but the Rams just need to 'take care of business' and see whether the other two can or can't do the same.

that entire podcast was a train wreck, from start to finish, my goodness, and of course vinny giving us his insiders take on ramsey at the end, mama mia.... honestly, it reminded me a football version of wayne's world, a couple of guys in their mom's basement talking, or trying to talk, football... and how about the blurb next to the podcast player, informing visitors that now that the rams are on their bye rich and vinny will weigh in on the first 5 games, ha ha, wtf? :D

Sources: Jalen Ramsey promises Rams he won't hold out if sides can't reach deal

Oct 19, 2019
Adam Schefter
ESPN Senior Writer

Before the Los Angeles Rams completed last week's blockbuster trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey, they received a promise that made them comfortable with the deal.

Ramsey promised the Rams that even if the sides do not agree to a long-term deal this offseason, he will not hold out next season in the last year of his contract, league sources told ESPN.

Ramsey told the Rams, however, that if the sides are unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal and Los Angeles then uses its franchise tag on him in the winter of 2021, all bets are off and he could hold out, according to sources.

But the Rams got a promise that Ramsey would honor his contract this and next season without interruption, and it made them comfortable to go ahead and trade two first-round draft picks and a fourth-round pick to Jacksonville.

"That is a gift," one league source aware of Ramsey's promise told ESPN. "Most guys when they get traded -- Khalil Mack, Antonio Brown -- they get traded and sign a new deal. He's gifting the Rams two wholesale years and not requiring a rip-up."

Not only is Ramsey gifting the Rams this and next season, but he also isn't in any rush to do a new deal with them. He would like a new deal, and so would the Rams, and both know the contract would set records for an NFL cornerback and could set records for an NFL defensive player.

Another twist to this past week's trade is that although the Rams want to re-sign Ramsey and intend to do so, they could turn around and trade him to recoup their investment -- if the sides can't reach a long-term deal.

Among the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Chargers and even a Jacksonville team that begrudgingly traded Ramsey, the Rams believe there would be a strong market to get back a healthy portion of the compensation they gave up.

His money is coming whether he gets extension or not


I'm just saying, he is going to get an extension.

Read the section about the Eagles being basically suitor no. 2 for Ramsey-- offering a 1st and 2nd rounder.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2 ... eter-king/

After the Eagles collapse last night, they could have easily become suitor no. 1, leaving the Rams out. I think we did what we had to do to improve and expect that we basically paid market value for Ramsey. The guy was in a sellers market and we pulled the trigger.
