    Jax gets 2 first rounders in 20 and 21 and a 4th in 21. They also traded Marcus Peters to Baltimore for a LB and an undisclosed draft pick in 2020. I guess it remains to be seen if it's worth it, but the Rams gave up a lot to get him.

    Rams are in panic mode. They forfeited their future for today. Ramsey won't save them.

    They needed Trent Richardson from Washington, I don't understand this move. Peters was good, no not as good as Ramsey, plus all the cool stuff you can do with his name and the Rams. But really now they have 0 options other than going for Eli or some veteran in the off season to replace Goff. But put anyone behind that line and they are going to have issues

    I guess they figure if they can be 85 Chicago great at Defense it helps Goff. Playing an extra game in the playoffs and on the road isn't going to be great, but at least they have the Refs on their side to balance things out.

    I work with a dude named Dick Brown. True story.. I know it's sophomoric, but that's basically my sense of humor. (And level of maturity)

    Wow. That's an interesting stat. I wonder if they looked it at from that angle before they made the trade. Had that information been presented to them in that format, it's hard to see them still thinking that its a good move. But, if they didn't realize until it was a done deal, then they were asleep at the wheel.

    The Rams now have more 1st round draft picks from other teams on their roster than they do their own.

    Including former Saint Brandin Cooks who the Saints could use about now.

    Yep. It was a good trade, but we need to address our WR problems. No one is stepping up as a compliment to Mike.
