So today is a bitter sweet day for the Rams

With just 1 game left on the schedule, my Rams remain a 1 victory team. We won against Detroit a long time ago, back on week 8 of the season. Together with unexpected upset victories by Tampa and Cleveland, we are now mathematically guaranteed to win the 1st pick overall in the 2010 Draft. This signifies that we are the worst team in the league.

As the clock wore down in the Cardinals victory today, the discussion was not about the Cardinals prospects in the playoffs. I found that odd. Rather, the men wanted to discus what the Rams would do with that #1 pick. Would we take Ndamukong Suh? Would we deal the pick? What the hell are the Rams going to do? They seemed intensely fascinated by this question. They seemed to believe the Rams could get some serious ammo by dealing the pick; 3 picks specifically. They seem to believe that there will be several serious minded suitors.

I sure hope so. Last year, we couldn't pay the Jets to take our #2 pick.

I already blogged on this subject, because I had a suspicion things would work out this way. You know how I feel about this subject: Defense is not our area of greatest need. Offense is our are of desperate need. As much as I would like to have a killer commando like Suh, I do not think we can afford to use our pick in this manner.

If someone is willing to load us with 2 first rounders for the top pick, we must take the deal. Those picks should turn into Russel Okung and Tim Tebow. We need to fix our horrendous offense. We have no chance of winning in 2010 unless we do.
