    I don't think he's in trouble.

    But at some point; dude needs to play like a high draft pick. It's on him to change the lack of confidence building among fans.

    It's his head man, aside from the fumble and the indecisive kickoff return (which I don't completely blame him for) he wasn't too shabby. In fact he looked pretty good in pass pro.

    lol he's actually been the best in pass Protection - heard it through camp, saw why in the pre-season game.

    I wasn't as impressed with the other backs besides Pead, Cunningham, and Drich.

    I was really P.O.'d at Pead for the fumble, especially on an early-game drive that looked like it was destined for a score. But after watching the game again last night I thought his overall performance was fine and look forward to see how the rest of his preseason pans-out.

    No, he's our best pass protection guy, he's safe.

    Dude just needs to break a couple of long ones to get his confidence up.
    He gets more and more jacked when he gets in a rhythm.

    Correct, but he needs to stop putting the ball on the ground. Same thing happen last year in the first pre-season game plus Pead has proven early on, he does not handle adversity relatively well.

    .

    i'm pretty sure the rams will take 6 yards a pop every day of the week.

    but if he fumbles again in preseason the heat will start rising.

    he handled pretty well in the game. a tough 5 yard inside run then an explosive 10 yard scamper. couldn't of handled it any better.

    Fumbles seem to be a recurring problem for Pead. I'm not very optimistic about him ever doing much for the Rams. He's basically been out played by every RB the Rams have had on the roster the last 2 years.

    True and I was impressed that Fisher went right back to him, however, let's hope with an increased work load the fumble does not become habitual.

    Lol no it's easily Pead.

    Just rewatched Stacy's snaps: I saw one whiff on a chip and a play where he definitely should have helped the LT out, allowed a good hit on davis.

    Also didn't see him overpower anyone in such a manner that pead did lol..

    Stacy is better than Drich in Pass pro though

    seriously, what a biased, agenda driven article. i wasted 60 seconds of my life reading it.

    no slam on you albe, just the propagandist who wrote this crap.

    I don't think he's in trouble yet. If by the end of this season he hasn't improved much then that's when his status will start to be questioned. Since he was a second round pick last year I would think that he is safe through this year at the very least.

    No problem bud. :bg:

    I almost never read the articles before I post them. It takes me too long to read them. What I might think is crap others might think is gold. You can tell if I read it by looking to see if I made a comment or not. I always make comments if I'm the first to read something. If you don't see a comment by me on a thread it usually means I have nothing new to add.

    How come nobody is blaming Dahl for missing a backside block, allowing a 340 pounder to get to top speed to kill Pead on that play, and Pead, who could have bounced it, but probably didn't because of his critics saying he's indecisive all the time. He was anything but indecisive this whole game. He slammed it in there.

    I am being totally honest; we want Pead to succeed to the point people are making excuses for him.

    I still think he could pan out.. . But, the burden of proof is on Pead.

    He's not shown anything close to his draft position. Fact.

    I am rooting for him: but a spade is a spade.
