The Rams are making moves for sure, don't know if they are the right moves but making moves none the less.

To me, their real weakness seemed along the defensive line where they showed little ability to rush the passer on a consistent basis or stop the run. Seems as if they may have been a bit better served to nail down some beef in the line and then rely on an acquisition at LB later on. We'll see how this all plays out.

Yeah, what are the chances?

The Lions do have to realize that the time is now. Make some good moves or retool. They need to make an all out effort to sign Garcia, or just cut Harrington and sign Warner, Fielder, whoever and start to rebuild their QB spot while the division is in such turmoil. Probably they'll end up Ditka-ing around and end up with some retread QB and have to rely on Bloey. :-t

They will grab a DE in the draft, there are a bunch of solid DE that could be immediate starters for the rams. (Pollack, Cody(s), James, Spears, etc.)

On paper it was a great move for the Rams..>Coakley and Claiborne...I guess I am suspicious though. Both the Lions and the Vikings let Claiborne get away...Why is that?

Tons of potential in my opinion, but there were plays he didn't make. But he could be a solid piece to the Rams defense.

Note to self: tell Minny FO that they need to improve the defense, not lose their best players.

i agree... claiborne misses a lot of tackles that he should make and is inconsistant... loads of talent... but i could care less about him leaving...

best job in the NFL: vikings defense ... all you have to do is sit around and miss tackles all day long and get paid to do it... i could go out there and miss tackles and have trouble catching up to receivers... i would fit in perfect... sign me vikes... !
