Then you've got that young offensive line with all those high draft picks...

Not to mention they've got Gurley and he's got a season under his belt and will have a good understanding of pass protection assignments unlike his rookie season...

That's not a bad situation for a young, talented quarterback with a good head on his shoulders...
You know what JP? I had a brain fart and forgot about Gurley. You're right that defense and a running game is a must for a rookie QB.

But consider, the Rams, despite their record, have had a top 5 defense for several years...

And they have a young strong running game...

They've lacked what we take for granted - a quarterback...

So if they go to the playoffs after how ever long and win even one playoff game in their first year in Los Angeles...

Anyways, just wait and see how this quarterback, if it is a quarterback, shakes out...
I agree. They've been a QB away from stealing that division.

No change for the Saints. We still take Jarran or A'Shawn

Re: Blockbuster!!! Titans Trade Top Draft Pick To LA Rams...How it affects Saints?!?

I first saw the news breaking on a crawl, and it seems like it was never ending. Pick after pick, after pick given up by the Rams. I thought I was reading some fan's conjured up dream of what he hoped his team would get back for trading the #1 pick.

This is a mistake for the Rams, even if whoever they take (presumably Goff) works out, unless he ends up being the next truly great QB in the league. I don't see greatness in any QB they might take. I won't be at all surprised if this is remembered for a very long time as one of the dumbest trades ever.

What the Saints did in '99 was worse, on the surface, but at least we later got a couple first rounders back for Ricky Williams.

That was spent on Jonathan Sullivan...

That was one of them, yeah. The other was Charles Grant, who was good for a few years anyway. Then they go and trade up the next year to draft the highly overrated Sullivan. I never liked it, even before he fell flat on his face.

Randy Mueller worked hard to turn the Saints into a playoff team in 2000. '01 didn't go well, but he drafted Deuce McCallister that year most likely with the idea that he'd eventually trade Ricky. He got back what turned out to be two first rounders, and the opportunity was there to significantly improve the team. But no, Benson fires Mueller out of nowhere for no reason other than ego, I can only assume, and leaves it up to Loomis and the goons. They screw it all up and send the Saints right back into purgatory. But Loomis kept his job. Then got lucky on a coach and a shot in the dark with an injured QB-turned hall of famer, and was anointed a "genius".

People who worship Loomis, nowadays, seem to have forgotten that past.. He's made a string of bad moves in recent years, again, yet Benson won't touch him. I'll never understand that.

Ricky who? lol We won't be known for the worst trade in history anymore. They gave up 2 first round picks and 2,000 more? WOW! What a bunch of dumbasses.
