    I seriously doubt Fisher would waste Britt's time with BS like that. He was brought in to have a chance to compete to make the team, it really is that simple.

    I am sure Fisher wants nothing more than for Britt to straighten up, and be dedicated and injury free- but make no mistake- that is a longshot and anyone knows that. WHich is why the easy out clause- and it is def possible that the smokescreen factor was part of it as well. Makes perfect sense.

    Why would the rams need to put up a smoke screen to land Watkins? if they want him he will be there at 2.....

    Because the plan most assuredly is to trade down. If we trade down to say 5 for example- it could prevent someone at 6-10 from trading over us assuming we are set at wr and are going another direction. We arent staying at 2- I would bet the farm on that. When we did the RGIII deal- we wanted Blackmon bad and everyone knew it- and that is why we got jumped. I think he may be trying to avoid that scenario.

    yea but it's fair to speculate how would blackmon have performed here.. Fisher's direction and the way he handles rookies is one of the best I've seen, imo. Look at Janoris, Tru, ogletree, etc.

    Except doesn't like 60% of the NFL smoke? They make it easy to pass the tests - it's only the idiots that get caught..

    the ones that scare me are the drinkers, all night partiers, and DUI's.

    eeehhh I don't know I believe that yet.. there's still a fair amount of prudes and people throwing out misguided information while trying to pass it off as fact (like "Gateway drug"). Lol only thing that ever lead to was the fridge.

    black Friday caused more deaths than the first day bud was legalized :D

    He was targeted a total of 35 THATS THIRTY FIVE TIMES. OMG WTF BBQ.

    Why don't we just go over the stats of how horrible all the Rams FA signings are outside of Saffold? This isn't that big of a deal. It's a 1 year contract. I don't think we need to get too dramatic over it.

    If we really wanted Blackmon we'd have gotten him. We received a ransom for the #2 pick and we knew who the top 4 picks would be. We could have offered a 4th and 5th to move up 1 spot from #6. The Buccaneers accepted less.

    Lol right.. "Boys will be boys".

    Lol Alan - I think it's just how guys interact...you should see the crap we pulled on deployment - I'm not admitting or denying that there may have been a few people saran wrapped/duct taped to their beds when they woke up :D

    I disagree. If they didn't want him Fisher wouldn't have gotten pissed and slammed his glasses when the jags took him

    He might have already had a deal in place with another team that wanted Blackmon. And he was pissed that deal fell through.

    That would be more plausible since the goal was to gain as many picks as possible their first season with the rams.

    .

    Could mean either speculation has merit. We will never know which is true.
