I am going to start this off by saying this came from ESPN NFL Rumors section and I know that all these are just speculation and most of the things said on there will never happen. That being said it has been speculated that since Kevin Kolb's and McNabb's contracts end at the end of next year that the Eagles may try to trade McNabb and keep Kolb for much cheaper. I would provide a link to the page but many of you are not ESPN Insiders and it would only take you to the NFL Rumors page.
The Rams seem to one of the suitors trying to get McNabb and they also have their eye on Vick. As of right now if one of the two were going to go to the Rams it would most likely be Vick since McNabb could threaten to retire rather then play for a 1-15 team. The Rams also have the number 1 pick overall and they could possibly take a QB but most predictions point to them taking Suh.
The Rams have a lot of holes to fill on the roster but assuming they draft Suh and trade for either McNabb or Vick would this make them a possible contender in the West? They seem to be lacking at many of the skill positions mainly receiver and in the secondary. If they are able to keep Atogwe and draft a decent defensive back that could make their defense fairly good with Long and Suh anchoring the line and James Laurinaitis emerging at linebacker. I am wondering whether you guys think this will make the Rams at least a .500 team if not a contender in the West?
I believe that if they draft decently, not great, but decently that this move will only make them a .500 team. There are too many holes that need to be filled and depth that needs to be added. However, I do believe that making this move will make them a couple pieces away from competing for the division again. Also with the identity that the Rams have right now and lack of skill at the wideout position, I believe that Vick would be the better addition because he is a dual threat. I am not saying in anyway that he is the better overall QB. McNabb is a much better QB but he has become more of a passing QB rather than a mobile QB. In fact in seems as though he has become a little fragile as of late and behind that line I do not think he would last. I think having Vick and Jackson in the backfield would make them much like the Titans. I know Jackson is not as good as CJ but Vick may be better then Young.
Anyway I know this is all about the Rams but I was wondering if the Rams were somehow able to get McNabb, if you guys think we would need to worry about them for the divisional title or if they need a lot more help to even think about winning the division?
