2011 and Good Mojo

I hope it is not bad football mojo, but you know what?  I’m happy about how things are going with the Rams right now.  That’s right… I said it.  I’m happy lol and it’s been a while since I could say it.  I was tempted to be happy when we signed Sam Bradford, but between his lofty price tag and the newly repaired shoulder, all I could sincerely muster up was a flaccid smile (secretly I even pontificated if he’d become a candidate of the JaMarcus Russell club).  You know when it hit me?  It hit me when I learned the Rams signed Quintin Mikell out of free agency the other day.  Normally, I cringe because the only free agents we ever acquire are guys off of someone’s practice squad or somebody who went undrafted.  But, no…  This guy is a bona fide stud.  Mikell is a seasoned veteran who isn’t over the hill.  He did a great job at the Safety position for the Eagles and is someone other teams actually want.  I think I’m going to giggle.

I like Josh McDaniels as our Offensive Coordinator.  No he wasn’t much good as head coach for the Broncos, but he ruled as Offensive Coordinator for the Patriots.  When Spagnuolo took over a couple of years ago as a first time head coach with a defensive background and was paired with a first year offensive coordinator (Shurmur), I thought that was frickin ridiculous.  This pairing makes a lot more sense.

Now I might be getting a little greedy, but if we could pick up a proven big-time receiver (McDaniels likes to stretch the field) and a solid back up or tandem running back (Steven Jackson needs a break every once in a while) then I could hang out with Phil Jackson and get my Zen on.  Here are some free agents that come to mind:

Receivers

Braylon Edwards

Brian Finneran

T.J. Houshmandzadeh

James Jones

Antwaan Randle El

Running Backs

Joseph Addai

Jerome Harrison

Brandon Jackson

Julius Jones

Mewelde Moore

Dominic Rhodes

Jason Snelling

Leon Washington

Ah the sweetness of it all.  A couple more weapons, another big signing, a little extra coin, and we are there baby.  Don’t jinx me now Murphy.
