Mebbe We Can do Something Like This: this defense ranks third in the league with 5.6 yards allowed per attempt on passes outside the numbers (Guess)

    it's the rams.

    The Rams’ pass defense has been very effective this season, thanks in no small part to the additions of cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins andCortland Finnegan. Jenkins is tied for the league lead with nine passes defended, breaking up seven passes in addition to his two interceptions. Finnegan, who was signed from the Titans in the offseason, is tied for fourth in the league with three interceptions through seven games. Their arrival is a major reason why the Rams’ defense ranks third in the league with 5.6 yards allowed per attempt on passes outside the numbers.

    many of you all know we had a shot at both and i wanted them,

    maybe bb can lose the "pride"/ego and do something like this in the offseason (if not a trade before) - get us some(or a) top cbs.

    Those two are quite a tandem. I wanted Jenkins too but BB knows best and I like Jones and Hightower. I think he was gone by the Wilson pick.

    Great corners like the Rams have makes for a good pass defens and improves the entire defense as well. This game will present a challenge for the offense to pass.

    I think part of the problem is that secondary players (at least good ones) don't come cheap.

    How much does a elite starting corner cost nowadays? Whatever it is, I guarantee you that it doesn't fit into our "value" cost index. That's why we've spent a large majority of our draft resources selecting these players..it's cheap. If you hit it, then you have a guy at a position that costs serious money on the cheap - we haven't hit on any of them - it's hurt the defense not only there, but in other spots. It's a good idea in theory - you draft a corner or safety relatively high. You coach them to fit into your system and then you end up with a good secondary. Also as an added benefit you get to operate your team without spending to the salary cap (as we have done for two straight seasons...7 million under this year and last). So everyone wins!! The team is solid and you win championships and the owner gets an extra 14 million of cash profit in his pockets.

    It didn't work.

    thanks for the comments sporter.

    yes no teh plan would have been to move up from the wilson pick to get him.

    anyway, moving on, (i dotn trust bb and due to a long history here, but im hopeful) i hope we do something like this going forward.

    "How much does a elite starting corner cost nowadays? Whatever it is, I guarantee you that it doesn't fit into our "value" cost index."

    thats teh problem right there. you want a good defense, you fit it in.

    ask teh top gms what you have to have to have an elite or a good team, and elite corner, along with pass rushing de are 2 of teh pieces you want to have on defense.

    yes they are worth ten million. and doubly worth it to a gm who cant pick a good cb form a needle in a haystack.

    Devin McCourty. "Mebbe" you should attempt (although I doubt it is possible) to understand the NFL salary cap, and realize why we didn't/shouldn't sign guys like Cortland Finnegan and Ladarius Webb to 50 million dollar contracts.

    maybe you want to give credit to others pehaps, that they are as smart as you and have other ways to make a better team given what we have and what $ is available.

     last i read we had like 10 mil space.  also over this offseason, i valued the elite cb over a 7th offensive weapon (welker)

    All hail the allmighty scout! Jenkins sure looked superior, after they hit him with the extinguisher. I wonder if Dennard would have anyting to say about this.

    You harp on the coaching, tell me oh wise one who would you rather have as a HC? Rex?  ha ha
