  1. They definitely aren't what they used to be but the chances of a retear is definitely increased. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130711084135.htm https://mikereinold.com/return-to-play-testing-after-acl-reconstruction/
  2. There's definitely an increase in the chances of retearing your knee. However judging by past drafts, teams don't seem to be THAT concerned with players coming off torn ACLs. I agree that you should factor in capitalizing on the remaining elite years of Julio + Ryan. However Simmons is a beast of a prospect. Ideally you'd trade down and nab him at the end of the 1st if you do want him. Ultimately I feel TD and Co go stay at 14 and go with a safer option.
  3. At the time Jaylon was drafted there was big concern that he could never play again due to nerve damage. Red shirting his first year was a given. Jack has a degenerative knee and teams were highly concerned he wouldn't last past his rookie contract. Simmons should be back by November at the latest and there's very little long term worry with his injury.
  4. Unless teams are significantly devaluing him for his assult I highly doubt Simmons will fall to us in the 2nd. Jaylon Smith (Nerve damage) and Myles Jack (Degenerative knee) went high 2nd with significantly worse injuries.
  5. Surpised we cut him. He played really well the two years previous to last. Was our best CB. 8.5 million doesn't buy you much in FA, especially at CB (DJ Hayden got like 6.5 aav last year). Would have liked to bring Alford back for another run this season. FO must really be confident in Oliver locking down that #2 role.
  6. People just assume Gurley was injured even though both him, the team and the injury report suggested otherwise. He looked fine yesterday. Gurley just isn't as good as his numbers suggest. That system and oline prop him up. He's still a good back but not elite like his numbers may indicate. CJ Anderson who was sitting on his couch watching football in November came in and completely replaced his production on the ground. Since he arrived in LA he actually looked better on the ground than Gurley. Anyways I thought it was nuts for LA to pay Gurley 15mil a year. RBs is a highly replaceable positon and the injury risk is high. Bet LA is kicking themselves for handing out that contract.
  7. Coke >>>
  8. Not having Outkast, Future and Luda here is a crime.
  9. Yeah cause Gurley would definitely lead that Giants team to the superbowl. Come bro. https://mobile.twitter.com/benbbaldwin/status/1064902100528836609?lang=en Nice thread on your MVP. CJ Anderson out here looking like an elite back since being in LA. Hmm wonder why that is.
  10. How does CJ Anderson come in off the street and run the ball better than he did fully healthy? Gurley breaks tackles on like 13% of his tackles which is like leauge average. Saquan is at like 26%. Gurley is a good back but Mcvay and the Rams oline make him look way better than he is.
  11. Rams paying Gurley 15 mil aav over the next foreseeable future. Lol. So overrated
  12. Ed Oliver. He's the best player in the draft.
  13. DQ and TD have to hold their laughs in when he trips over his words to barely get a sentence out. He's great for comedic relief during press conference. Smart move by the team for letting him in.
  14. Really like this hire as long as we fix the oline or else Matt will be dead. Lol You need to aggressively attack downfield in todays game and Koetter system is made for that. Plus he lets Matt run the no huddle which will be huge for us. Koetter with these weapons should be filthy.
  15. Lol no proof. Didn't think so.
  16. Correlation doesn't equal causation. You need a way bigger sample size to draw a conclusion that winning games at the end of the season directly affects next seasons results.
  17. Im talking about teams out of playoff contention.
  18. Im just like you bro draft time is my favorite part of the NFL season lmao. We kinda weird haha. Keep in mind we have to re up a bunch of players over the next two years while extending Julio and replacing whoever we cut. Our cap room is tight. As for draft positom while its not going to a HUGE difference I still believe drafting higher has a way bigger impact on this team than winning these meaningless games at the end of the year. I have yet to see any proof that winning those games has any bearing on the next season. While getting better players does. Obviously its no guarantee you will get a better player drafting higher does give you a better chance. When I look at 2014 and see we missed out on Mack and Lewrance, two players we coveted over some meaningless wins it makes me sick. But whatever it is what it is. Need a big offseason. Hope we nail it.
  19. Depends how you look at it. 2016 we had a 25 point lead in the Superbowl. 1998 we didn't even make the game close. So I look at the 16 season as our best. I want to make one thing clear. I'm in no way wanting or thinking the players will throw a game to help our draft positon. I do think however a loss will be better for this franchise as going foward since drafting higher gives you a better shot at landing your players. Also I've asked multiple times but have yet to be given the data. Do you have proof that winning some meaningless games at the end of the year actually help you the next season? I keep seeing this mentioned but with zero proof. Surely if winning meaningles had any bearing you wouldnt see multiple teams benching their stars today.
  20. Exactly. All these people claiming draft positon doesn't matter curiously omit that in 2014 we missed out on Khalil Mack and DeMarcus Lewrance (both players we were targeting) because of two meaingless wins aginst Washington and Buffalo. What do you think was more beneficial for this franchise. Those two wins, Matthews + Hageman or Two of the NFLs premier pass rushers?
  21. The best season we've had in this franchises history was after we finished the season like 2-9.
  22. I somehwhat agree. However the potential to trade down and load up on assets really takes a hit by winning today. A cap strapped team like us would have really benefitted from a deal like that. Also drafting higher in every other round is something never mentioned but its a big benefit of drafting higher. Im just of the opinion of winning meanignless games has zero bearing on the next season and have yet to see any statistical evidence to refute my claim. While a higher draft position will actually help this team next season. Whatever though. It is what it is.
  23. Any proof of this actually being true? I've herd in mentioned alot here.
  24. In terms of draft position it was "unclutch".
  25. I want a better team next year. I know, weird.
