Gresham To Cardinals


Recommended Posts

I'm not understanding why Gresham signed with the Cardinals over the Saints, but I'm happy he chose to do so. Arian's offense doesn't utilize the TE that much and Brees throws it to the TE all the time. Only thing that makes sense to me is that he really isn't healthy and Arizona offered more. Guess he took the higher salary instead of the opportunity to raise his value for next year because he may not have another year? I don't know.

They needed him more than we did. We would have had to cut a guy that may be better than Gresham to make a roster spot for him. ARZ runs two TE's a lot and carries 4. Troy Niklas is a 2nd yr player now with little production as rookie. Darren Fells was their 3rd TE last year behind Carlson and Houser both gone. 7th rder Gerald Christian should be #4. Ted Bolser has a shot as a street FA.

1-Carlson-33, 350

2-Houser-9, 129

3-Fells-5, 71

4-Niklas-3, 38

1-Gresham-62, 460(but coming off back surgery)

2-Niklas-3, 38

3-Fells-5, 71

4-Christian-rookie 7th rd pick or Bolser-2014 7th rd pick no stats

1-Tamme-14, 109

2-Moeaki-8, 134(capable of 40, 500 if healthy for 16)

3-Toilolo-31, 238

We signed guys for what they can do rather than what they did last year with little chance of duplicating.

The Rams could be the surprise team in the NFC West if they find a QB. Of course I've been saying that for going on 3 years now.

Haven't had a winning season in over a decade. I am sure this will be the year.

But hey...Les Snead is doing an amazing job.

Did Brees really throw to the TE position all that much or was it because they had a premier pass catcher at the position that lined up at WR more than TE?

They were walking away with it last year until losing their #1 QB, their #2 QB, and their #1 RB to injury. I don't see why anyone would be the least bit surprised if they do so this year.

Cards winning over Seahawks? Oh yeah, that would surprise plenty of folks, just not two old coots like us.

They've got a good coaching staff in place and talent all over that team, QB has been the issue there. If they had a decent QB they would have won a lot more games the last 3 or 4 years. Sam Bradford's broken down self never made it through a full season and the backups were always ****** as heIl. Unfortunately I don't think it's getting any better this season with Nick Foles.

Don't get why so many people love Jeff Fisher. He has had 6 winning seasons in 20 years as a head coach.

I don't love Jeff Fisher. But I do realize that he's a good enough coach to get a team to the playoffs. He's had 11 seasons of .500 or better in a season. His postseason record is 5-6. He oversaw a team would become a team that would end up losing the Super Bowl in 1999. That team eventually fell in into salary cap **** and he was able to oversee the rebuilding process that got them back to the playoffs including a year of 13-3. He's not the reason the Rams have only gone 20-27-1 since he's been there, that all falls on not having a QB.

But why don't they have a QB? Other than McNair, Fisher and QB's seem to not be able to get on same page. See Rex Ryan.

Never thought we'd go after him anyways after we brought in two TE's. Good for the Cards.

Tamme can't catch, even with manning lobbing right into his hands.

Moeke awesome catching, but will be hurt during the season.

I didnt know Gresham had back surgery. He still would have been better than what we have.

Anyway,

We are running the ball this year,

it will be fun to watch.

Two RB rooks and our OL-Tice

Man, we should pay MR more money,

he is going to earn it.
