    If you're already looking to put together your '09 mock draft, the Rams are really the only team that can claim they were in the same stratosphere of suck as the Raiders this past week. It's shaping up to be a heated battle.
    The Eagles had their way with the Rams offensively, with the Rams defenders kindly allowing Donovan McNabb to pretend he was a young man again. Three hundred-yard receivers and a 81-yard rusher is an indication of an offense that didn't face a whole lot of resistance. And the Rams offense was even worse than their defense. Head coach (for a few more weeks, anyway) Scott Linehan openly admits that the same effort won't win a single game for the Rams this year.
    The glass-half-full-view? Number one draft pick, baby!
    That's the positive spin that Dallas Morning News columnist Rick Gosselin is putting on things in light of the Rams being shockingly awful in every phase of the game on Sunday. He's already planning what they can do with the first pick in the '09 draft.

    Right now, the Rams are the worst team in the NFL, which would entitle them to the first overall pick in the 2009 draft. The best senior currently on that draft board is Georgia Tech defensive end Michael Johnson.​
    Just four more months of sitting through painful football, and then you can start looking ahead to another young stud defensive lineman. Feel the glory, Rams fans.
    But I think it's awfully disrespectful of Gosselin to just ignore the Raiders like that. Their performance on Monday night was a clear indication that they're not letting go of that #1 overall pick without a fight. This has the potential to be an epic battle.

    Yes! I believe top draft picks keep Al Davis alive.
    May the next generation of phenominal college players be forever doomed to a terrible carreer playing for the Raiders.

    The Raiders purely suck. Here's a fun game I'd pay to see. The showdown in the Collesium: The Oakland Raiders @ The University of Southern California Trojans. Any takers?

    Is this the guy who wrote this articles #1 on HIS draft board or is this your #1 on YOUR draft board?

    I think that's the quote so it's #1 on the writer's draft board.

    a few more injuries and they're shoe in to win nada, but looking at the Rams schedule, it could come down to a tie breaker for the #1 choice-with the Rams getting the nod for difficulty of schedule(I think). There isn't much to choose from so it's come down to who gets banged up more.

    The Rams suck but I think the Raiders suck more.

    A Monday Night Season Opener on their turf... where's the passion?
    The only reason why they weren't shut out is because the Broncos defense realized they could relax with a 24-0 lead in the third quarter.
