Please tell us how many snaps Corbett had at Center or OG ? His HC drafted him to be an OT when the rest of the league had him pegged as a Center or OG. Fans recalling his experience at Cleveland as a C/OG are having a very rough time explaining how fast he ended up starting and having success at both RG and LG in LA after never previously taken a regular season snap at those positions.Corbett was a failure at C for the Browns which was his last chance before being traded here.
There's no reason to go through it all, but I would've let Floyd walk, got a free 3rd round pick next year, spent good money on a center, and spent anywhere from $5M-$8M on edge. Whoever lines up next to AD will produce. We still haven't restructured Stafford!! There was another $12M thay could've been invested on a top center FA and/or edge.Knowing that reality states you can't spend the big bucks bolstering every position room...which rooms/positions would you spend on? Pretend its a video game and you have 25 experience points(which is cash) to dole out. Lol
Fair enough i didn't expect you to break it down. I was being a little silly while trying to make a point. It comes down to philosophy on where you want put the cap hit.There's no reason to go through it all, but I would've let Floyd walk, got a free 3rd round pick next year, spent good money on a center, and spent anywhere from $5M-$8M on edge.

We went to the super bowl with the #2 offense and #18 defense. Last year with rhe #1 defense and #22 offense we couldn't even get to the NFCC. The point is offensive numbers is what matters for us. We made a big move signing Stafford, someone we need to keep upright, and instead of ensuring our OL is dominant we invested in defense. And sorry I dont agree with that strategy for a Sean McVay team.
I got to disagree with you completely.......the much better idea is......Well if they did, they'd learn a thing or two.......for example, boobs are a great thread idea
Over reacting doesn't equate to criticizing. Over reacting equates to over reacting.You're essentially telling people to trust the pros and not over-react. Over-reacting equates to criticizing. I honestly just like hearing the back and forth since who knows who's right. No matter what happens, people are either going to be with or against the moves the Rams make and voice their thoughts. I'm simply voicing my thoughts in relation to your comments. I'm at the point where I'm just spectating and hoping it all works out.
Well now you're talking about the difference between calmly criticizing and going crazy criticizing. Everyone just does it at different levels in my opinion. I'm sure the Rams had a plan, but having one and being able to execute it are completely different. No one on this board exactly knows that so we try to rationalize, fairly or unfairly, what happened. I'm definitely just like it is what is. I actually agree with you on the rookie center part. I stated in another post that if we do, at least that center has Stafford to lean on and learn from because he's definitely done it before. Whether that works or not, who knows. I'm not losing sleep over it because we have a pretty legit team regardless.Over reacting doesn't equate to criticizing. Over reacting equates to over reacting.
Criticizing is "man, it looks like they're in a tough spot now.....who is our starting center? Somebody from the roster? Allen? Shelton? Somebody from the draft? Myers? Humphrey? I wish I knew and I hope they know"
Over reacting is "Blythe sucks but we don't know of any other clear starter on the roster. Oh man, great!!! Blythe signed with KC. We're fooked now!!! Clearly they didn't have a plan!! Clearly they lost their gamble!! Surely they're not going to depend on anybody else on the roster or a rookie center. They should have signed one of those pro bowl centers available in free agency!! No plan!!!"
There doesn't have to be somebody right and somebody wrong. Cause none of us know anyway. And you're right. Different strokes for different folks.
There were 4 guys/positions I was worried about after they traded for Stafford. Leonard Floyd and then resigned him. Darios Williams and they gave him a first round tender. John Johnson but they have 3 or 4 young safties so he was probably the most expendable. And finally a deep threat wide receiver and they answered that question. I was concerned with losing Hill but not as much as DWill. I was concerned with the center position but I figured from the get go, it was either somebody already on the roster (Allen, Shelton, Corbett or Anchrum), a free agent (but I figured that wouldn't be do-able) or a draft pick. And that last one could still happen. A lot of fans worry about "breaking in a rookie center" but with a guy like Stafford, who's already done that once three years ago, I don't see it as a problem. We have a QB with 13 years of experience. He doesn't have to worry about learning how to read coverages. He doesn't have to worry about learning how to move in the pocket. If breaking in a rookie center is his biggest worry, I'm fine with that, because he's done it.
I’m going to go slightly below adequate to below averageAdequate I think is the best description for him. It could be our coaching not getting the most out of him but most around here won’t be upset to se him leave unless we aren’t able to replace him.
WTF ?? When & where has that happened in his career??I do not understand why people think letting Blythe go tells teams what we're going to do in the draft.
For one thing, Corbett can play center.
For another, plenty of teams don't need a center, and some that do - including the Rams - might end up taking another position.
