Well, that brings up defining 'elite'...

July 21, 2021 04:31PM
And I want nothing to do with it.

But I think the Rams DO need an excellent RB, good run blocking OL or not...doesn't have to be the best in the league but has to be among the best. I think the RB position with Akers was... the 'cornerstone'. I don't think that's going to change with Henderson... but I do think the position is now being heavily scrutinized. The Ram's won't re-tool their O because they've lost Akers, (nor should they IMHO), but they will look to fill that hole with whomever can best fill it.... at this time I think they believe it's Henderson, (me too, to some extent, although he's not Akers). But even with Henderson stepping up they fill the hole for depth if no other reason....

And when filling it... the word 'fill' won't be a criteria on their want list... they'll come as close to what they expected of Akers as they possibly can.

  These 16 running backs are free agents; could any of them replace Cam Akers?

  I don't think it gets better than Peterson.

  In this case, his past makes a difference for me... (nm)

JamesJM16July 21, 2021 06:35PM

  IMO what we need is not so much Peterson to rip off...
