    With this kind of 40 time, the obvious solution to our dilemma is to draft Robinson to be our #1 WR. ;)

    Beat me to it. Think about it. Notify that he is an eligible receiver, put him in at LT and then let him gallop down the seam. Un-freakin-stoppable! :cool:

    Or have him run a reverse from the LT position. Holy crap. Am I an offensive genius or what.

    BTW - there are two or three ways you can go with that last statement.:whistle:

    Not gonna lie, man, just saw some highlights of his combine and he looked better than I thought. However, Lewan did too. ;)

    Let me know when Lewan puts on 30 pounds and still puts up anywhere near the same numbers. ;)

    When we play the 'Hawks, we can motion him to Richard Sherman's side of the field. Let Greg bellow to Sherman, "If you try holding me, sucker, I'll drag your sorry butt all the way to play dirt and stomp all over your loud mouth tail!!!!"

    *** People remember w/ more & more pass rushers playing the DT position now (and sub packages of 4 DEs) MEANS you need better interior linemen.. So getting elite OG's is more important than ever!!!
    RTs are getting taken in Rd 1 now so we can start Robinson at LG until Jake Long is done

    We'll have to see if the Rams think that way. I don't think they do. I could be wrong about that. You guys could be too. There is no right or wrong here. There is no UNDERSTANDING we either have or we don't. We just have different opinions of what most benefits our team. That's okay.

    Unless of course, the blue font implies that you're kidding. ;)

    I heard that the AMA has determined that it is dangerous to one's health for others to look at your thoughts. :eek:

    If we draft Robinson I hope he starts at LG this year. Next year rams would need to cut Jake in order to clear cap space and have Robinson take over at LT. Thats if the rams use the 2nd overall pick on Robinson

    Who said anything about cutting Jake Long? He is on a very reasonable contract for a top-tier lineman. If he fully recovers from the injury and for some reason we felt like we absolutely had to start Robinson at LT, then we'd either put Long at RT or trade him away.

    One could not argue that placing a run blocking monster like a 6-5 332 pound Gerald Robinson next to Jake Long 6-7 320 pounder would be just too much for the other NFL teams to handle & deal with.....it sure would make that run blocking left side something to behold for Zac.

    If im taking Robinson at #2, he better be my starting LT in the near future. Im not using such a high pick for an OG...I'll just wait till the end of the first round to fill the LG spot

    It's been said before but seeing as the two top OTs are so close, it really isn't about who's slightly better, but who's the better scheme fit. That being said I'll let you guys figure out who fits in better with our starting lineup from last year:

    Jake Long: 6-7, 322 lbs
    Chris Williams: 6-6, 326 lbs
    Tim Barnes: 6-4, 306 lbs (Cs are always considerably smaller than the rest of the O-line)
    Rodger Saffold: 6-5, 332 lbs
    Joseph Barksdale: 6-5, 326 lbs

    And the two possible new additions:
    Greg Robinson: 6-5, 332 lbs
    Jake Matthews: 6-5, 308 lbs

    One of these things is not like the other...

    I'm no expert, but i'm also not naive enough to fall in love with a guys combine numbers and declare him an automatic football gift from the Gods.
    What impressed me today from watching GR was his physique at 6'5" 330 lbs,his feet and balance(watch his broad jump) and overall his pure athleticism for a man his size.

    I came away surprised and quite impressed.

    Devastating running team, and gets rid of our weakest link.
