    I'll be honest Quinn, Long and Laurinitis were my favourite Rams for a very long time - I'll hold up my had and say that I am blinkered when it comes to Quinn and I WANT him to succeed - I also think he has a lot left in the tank.

    BUT, In saying that I also love Longacre, he seems to be more impactful when he's on the field, I wouldn't be sad to see him receive more starting reps. I'm also with @DaveFan'51 - this is a marathon the better rotation we have the better it will be for the Rams as a whole.

    Good Morning my good Ram fans bud's...Ref your & @DaveFan'51 using the word marathon.....After this game with the Jags 1/3 of the marathon season will have already passed. Wade has a good amount of ER's to run this season with Barwin, Quinn, Ebukam, Littleton, Price & Thompson.

    If I am paying aLB'er edge rusher Rob Quinn a near 11 million this season, I am going to use him as much as I can to get my $$$ worth out of him. One thing is clear we sure did not get much out of his 17 million cost in 2015 or his over 11 million out of him in 2016.The contract on RQ has been a non producer for this Ram team the last 2 seasons. This season at least we get to use him on the field some.

    Your main ER ....Rob Quinn is exclusively on the right side. One of two very important posts in this Wade "D". Quinn appears to be fully healthy even though we hear that his back is causing him a great amount of pain from unknown alleged close sources. I suspect the later is very true. Another fact here after 5 games is Matt Longacre Quinn have been rotating out on a regular basis. In addition we have seen Samson Ebukam even joining RQ/ML to work on that right edge rushing post. So a ever so slight change is in effect here.

    I would think that RQ is trending towards a pass rush specialist & a decrease in overall playtime on run downs. RQ is always used in the Wade 4 DL rush line. ML is trending to be the main ER to be utilized more of tern as this season runs on. Rookie Samson Ebukam will trend to see more action in this ER post but play back from the LOS more often. This is what I see. Let me know later when you see it too or don't see.

    When ER rookie Samson Ebukam relieves RQ or ML Samson will most likely perform a non rush duty on the outer right side of the back seven "D". Mark Barron usually will step up & blitz. ML is much better on containment than SE or RQ. ML does not have the speed of SE or RQ but he has the moves & the smarts to be effective most of the time. RQ still has the ppeed & still blazes by the outside left shoulder of the LT & will use a standard right swing twist move to get close back inside to the QB that's about it. Most LT's just press him out & around leaving the QB a sizable amount of room on that left side to throw or in Wilson case run through with no Quinn in sight. If that whats left in his tank it might as well remain there.RQ twists & stunts are even more pathetic where a interior OL'er can land one good thrust to the chest of RQ & stops him completely. RQ never raises two arms but he will get one arm up there from time to time. But that's a rarity too because RQ is usually behind the QB when he throw's the ball.

    I'm not an interior decorator, and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but aren't curtains and drapes essentially the same thing? Did you mean curtains/drapes matching the carpet/rug? Although that might be moot. Bare/hard surface flooring seems to be the preferred style these days. Probably because they're easier to keep clean. Spills wipe right up!!
