Don’t know the exact number but we know it will be towards the higher end for RB’s.  The only way I see them doing it is if they don’t see Singletary as a #1.

 

We can't say for sure the  #.

 

And to me Singletary  is a high end backup  and I've been preaching  all offseason we draft a better RB.

I think with the increased workload as the season went on, I think they feel he is.

 

Could be but if the reports are true about Gordon or if we do something else significant at RB - we should know what they think soon.  

 

I personally think he's a good back.  He gets tough yards, he's shifty and gets yards on good directional decisions.  He lacks that burst though and for whatever reason didn't trust him in short yardage and they didn't throw to him (or any backs).  I'll say they didn't use him near enough.  I don't think we got a full look at his capabilities, so for now only they know.

Are you just still hung up on his 40 time, or do you have some sort of actual basis for this hot take?  General consensus is he proved himself a capable starter being top 5 in multiple metrics.

Now he’s a free agent, and not only is he still not getting the offer he wants, but he’s not even getting an offer as good as what the Chargers offered last year.

Knew this was gonna happen. Has he fired his agent yet?

I think limiting Singletary to 21 touches is the move.  Having a back that can handle the rest without a drop off is huge.  The offense stalled when Gore was in the game.  The offense was predictable.

I think they offered him something crazy like $10 million per year last year, right? No way he gets anywhere near that now.

Has nothing to do with his numbers. He played really well for us.

 

A few issues I have with him. 

 

- I think hes good but not great.

- His pass protection and pass catching are average at best. 

- I dont think physically he can handle being a bell cow guy

 

I see no reason why we cant upgrade him and by doing so upgrade our entire offence

Jared Goff is certainly part of the problem.  But the team would still be in deep cap trouble, even if Goff was playing really well.

And if it wasn't for that terrible no-call against the Saints, the Rams wouldn't have even gotten to the NFC Championship game.

 

I always hated the Rams approach.  Thanks to their cap situation and lack of draft capitol, it may be 2-3 more seasons before they are even back into playoff contention.

 

Personally, I prefer the New England approach.  It's not about amassing a group of superstars, and making one desperate shot at the trophy.  It's about building a cohesive and consistent team that can compete every single year, regardless of injuries, free agency, etc.  If you can constantly field a team that wins 70-75% of your games for 10-15 years straight, odds are that you will eventually get a real shot at the trophy.

 

 

I recall a couple years ago when they signed everyone saying that Mcvay wouldn't be golden boy once cap hell hits.  Let's see how he does this year.

Improving the run will open up the pass game. 

 

I'm not a huge M Gordon fan but I'm interested to see where this goes

I concurr. Not a big fan of his either. I'd rather have Gurley if he's healthy. However, both would be a welcomed upgrade to our offense. It's just a matter of compensation.

‘Tis the season!  Wawrow is ultra plugged.  When there’s this level of disinformation it’s usually agent-fueled (hard glances Mr Bilbo...).  And JW is full of crap on just one thing...   He’s on his Xbox and he KNOWS IT!
