"Now when I go to the bathroom I find out who my friends are." - Jake Scott after both broken hands were in casts following the 1972 season
Since when do we believe anything Armando says??? Regardless of what the truth really is, Jake is not here anymore and he made his decision and we now need to make ours. All this stirring up the past and creating drama over stuff that's done is pointless and he's just trying to create drama. Next!!!
Long can kiss my ass for not sticking around with the organization (that made a huge mistake by drafting his ass #1) that paid him $50 Million on a rookie contract. If anyone should have taken a bit of a hometown discount it was him.
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
I don't think Jake Long cares about a Few hundred thousand either way with his money. He drove a beater pick up truck for a while after he got paid. I believe he didn't want to screw the Dolphins anymore because he knows he sucks now and so he's going to screw the Rams instead.
I don't think he ever wanted to be here. Seemed to me he always wanted to be a Ram. If I remember correctly he wanted a guarantee from the Rams that they would draft him at #2 if he didn't take the contract that was on the table from Parcells.
I wish Jake the best in St. Louis, but i'm not so sure we even need to invest that much in a left tackle that plays the pro-formation. It will be a god-send that he turned us down and left. Let us sign Winston for the right side and move Martin over. Martin was way better on the left side anyway, allows us to spend our cap space upgrading other needs.
“The organization has struggled from a personnel standpoint over the years. For instance, they drafted me in the second round. … You don’t recover from those types of mistakes.” — Rob Konrad on the team’s questionable draft picks from 1998-2003
