FYI, drafting is HOW you use your draft picks. Some times you use them to draft players some times you use them to acquire players. And that's how drafting works. Surprised you didn't know that.

FTFY because it's not FYI when you use definitions incorrectly. Drafting means you are actually, ya know, DRAFTING. It's a verb that doesn't include trading. What you are talking about clearly isn't drafting, because we didn't draft Hudson; we traded for him. What you mean to reference is utilizing draft capital, trading using draft capital, etc. Two very different things. Although the Hudson trade was a good one, it also represents Keim's failure to draft and develop a center, wasting draft capital doing so, and having to lessen his draft capital to fix that failure.

Keim has been good at trades. I'll certainly give him that. He hasn't been good at drafting, though. Two distinct parts of his job. I'd much rather he be better at drafting, then we wouldn't need him to trade away picks.

I'm glad we landed Hudson. I'd rather have a solid center AND have had our 3rd-rounder, but I'm glad we did land Hudson.

Hey Thankyou Slani,

Honestly I feel we are going to win, probably 2 scores maybe 3. Not being cocky or degrading to you guys but I feel how we’ve played D since the transition of the Fisher era we have the answer I grained in us vs. a mobile QB.

If you remember from 2012 Capernick and Wilson were the big things and Fisher built our D to specifically contain those type of QB’s, but we’d get throttled by AFC and other NFC teams to our famous 7-9 records lol smh

I’ll be rooting for you guys the next several weeks especially against the POS Whiners and SeaGulls. I’d prefer you guys win 10 NFC West titles in a row over either one of those bastard teams! Lol

Ps love Kingsberry but he IMO your guys biggest fault is OL. Young,cheap, and doesn’t get hurt. If you shore that up and get a premier RB you guys would be deadly asf.
More than a few have doubts about Kingsbury. He is still learning but has grown. Our offensive stats over the last three years are night and day.
This is probably his best offensive group he’s had during his regime.
We are a threat to put up 30 on anybody. However, we waste timeouts and sometimes we get too cute on play calling. Kyler can turn the wrong play into a td and maybe at times it saves Kingsbury.
I wish Kyler was under center more because our running game is better with him there.
One thing I have noticed is every time we have a big play we have a very hard time getting the next play off. Kind of kills momentum.
Hopefully we will have quite a lot of big plays to work on that ! Lol.
Good luck today. Pray for no injuries on either side.

Stout, you're entitled to your opinion, but you haven't convinced me that using picks to acquire players is not part of the draft process. But, I'll settle you're happy we got Hudson, though it sounds like you're not happy we used a pick to get Hopkins.

Not being cocky or degrading to you, but your prediction was off by nearly 40 points.

Will be rooting for you against the Seahawks though!!

Hell of a game won by you guys! Unlike most that give no credit, we got our ass whooped today! Your D kept us out of sync on O, very physical. On Offense, you exploited what I been calling a weak Raheem Morris cover 2 tendency defense. Hell of a game!

Honestly I was feeling this game when we played you in AZ not this week! Lol A lot of Ram fans discounted you like the same ol same ol. I knew from McVay punking Kingsbury and all the losses since that this was building for Kingsbury.

McVay does this for Seattle and Whiner games or against others that have humiliated him before.

Ps 2 or 3 scores isn’t 40 plus points

P.s.s beat those pos Whiners next week!

Thanks for being cool.

I felt from reading Rams fans comments that they we completely out of touch with the Cardinals roster.

The Cardinals ARE the better team right now. It was proven today.

I was at the game and was not impressed by the fans. It wasn't really loud at all.

I told you if you guys didn't play your "A" game and we did we be there in the end. Our guys did, your guys didn't.

You kidding? I'm THRILLED we got Hop for what we gave up. Insanely good trade. Trading picks as part of the draft process? I'll definitely agree with you there. Not the same as actual drafting, though.
