    Green dropped the ball on big plays in both playoff games. Sure, Dalton stinks. But let's not give Green a pass for not coming up big when he needs to. IMO, he's overrated.

    Of course we had Bruce, some unknown RB and Proehl among others to enable him to only have single coverage for years. That's gotta help don't you think?

    I want us to trade down to 5 or 6 and take this guy there - and then Taylor Lewan with our no 13 pick. Then hopefully we can have 2 second rounders aswell.

    Alshon Jeffery does. But he doesn't have Green's fluidity and burst.

    Not in this universe or any other.

    Green got open on both plays and Dalton made bad throws. On both plays, the ball wasn't dropped...it was slapped out of his hands.

    And Green did come up big last year, he beat his man deep in the final few minutes of the game down by 6 for a TD on 3rd and 11 and Dalton overthrew him.

    Yeah but only because he had all those other guys with him. Faulk, Warner, Ike, Pace Nutten, Miller, Timmerman, and a great defense too (1999). THAT was a great team.

    Holt was only successful because he had the other guys with him?

    Seriously? Holt's best season (1600 yards) came with BULGER.. And holt still played at a high level after Faulk, Warner, were on their way out.

    I don't know why you keep talking about holt's career from 1999 to 2002 - I'm talking about his entire career here

    Holt was great not taking anything away from him but I would bet he would trade his personal success for some more winning teams.

    and now we're getting far off track - the demise of what should have been a dynasty but wasn't didn't have to do with anything but incompetent coaching and management.

    Drafting that RBfrom Arizona in the first round started the demise. Rams had big holes on defense to fill but trung canidate was a bust from day one
