I expect the Rams to be able to compete by 2015. Considering their drafts, and the first round picks they'll get from us for the next few years as well as their own, they should be able to contend for playoff births by then.

Re: Falcons at Redskins Post Game Thoughts

Another hype job of a season that is going bust before week 8. We have some nice RBs, a pretty decent line, a nice batch of LBs, and of course RG3, but we still don't have a secondary, or to be honest a good WR corp. I like Santana doing damage late, but take away Garcon's initial quarter as a Redskin and he must be termed a possible bust at this point. The youngsters are serviceable, but nothing much else thus far either. I guess it isn't fair to call the season a bust til after week 8, but it already has the feel that we are muddling through.

OK, I'm going to play for this comment only. He's been fairly healthy his whole career, had a career high with garbage QBs last year and dropped a few last game after being hurt. Bust already? If RG3 was hurt after having a good first quarter week one and then did just OK last game would you say bust then too?

Seems mighty hasty to me.

Yeah. And they beat us this season. And with the rookie salary cap those first round picks are a lot more valuable than they were a couple years ago. If I were a Rams fan, I'd feel pretty good about the trade so far. They're probably looking at next draft's pick from us being top ten.

We did get the better QB out of the deal. Shanny making the best of our drafting situation in 2013 like he did in 2011, would help a lot. Becoming a good 3-4 defense (we really weren't that good last season) would be nice too.

Clearly you are not intelligent enough to stay out of the vortex or you would known Garçon was a bust before we signed him and that, because of the need for speed at the WR position, Gaffney was a much better fit because he once fished and so was familiar with Fisher who should turn the Rams into a winner in two years even before he was hired due to the powerhouses he played as a safety for the Houston Oilers while playing on a sprained ankle because he wasn't a wimp but Fisher couldn't beat Gruden when Gruden was coaching the Raiders but Gruden was also once a cook at Hooter's so he didn't wait tables and would never have been called a Garçon.

So obviously Shananhan should be fired.

You failed to fit in Haslett, Danny Smith, Gano anywhere in that though. Props for the Gaffney reference.

Might be, but don't count on it with the luck this team has been having the past two decades. Think about it. The season is five games old and this guy has been 100% only for one quarter. He was OK to play Sunday, but obviously not up to par. We will know how the season will go by game 8. One thing I hate about the NFL is it is mostly hype city to the max. The fans get all hooked into it and excited, then boom!!!! Reality crashes it all down to earth. Happens all the time, and us fans always seemed to get hooked to some degree as well. The poor showing our wideouts had Sunday minus Santana's 77 yard TD should be cause for concern. I know RG wasn't in there, but damn, are we destined to lose automatically whenever he can't play? I was hoping that along with Moss and Garcon, Hankerson and Robinson would have given us something akin to what the Saints had in a WR corp when Meachem was still around. Looks like we might have to wait another season for the youngsters to fully develop. I know Cousins isn't RG, but he is a good QB.

Classic rebut, but was that a rebut to me or Malcolm since I am the one who mentioned Garcon being a bust?

Good point. We faced a good team- a team that was and is undefeated up to this point. Hankerson, Robinson, and of course Garcon have their moments. Perhaps the offense is ordinary without RG3 because he is no ordinary quarterback. He gives a lot to defend so if there's a time he's not in the game, the defense becomes relieved a bit. Not saying Kirk Cousins can't play as good as Joe Montana or perhaps Richard Todd, but Cousins doesn't bring the same danger to defenses that Griffin III does. Sometimes I saw Cousins hang in the pocket longer than he should when he should have tucked the ball away and taken off. As far as the wideouts not getting any separation, perhaps Cousins didn't see anything open some of the time.
