Can we please get Robert Quinn on the field?
This is one of the positions of hope for the Rams. Chris Long is finally looking like a cornerstone type of player at left defensive end. He is not a superstar, but he gets consistent pressure on the QB, and he always plays hard. Robert Quinn was the team's first-round pick in last April's NFL Draft. He has star potential, but for some reason he can't get on the field.
I know, I know, he is really young, he doesn't have a lot of experience, blah, blah, blah...
Give me a break. St. Louis doesn't have anybody else that's worth costing this kid playing time. James Hall, an aging veteran, and Eugene Sims, a second-year player, are both ahead of Quinn on the depth chart at right defensive end. Come on Spags, put the kid in and let him play. It took Chris Long a couple of seasons before he figured it out. Quinn isn't learning anything on the bench.
Hall's time is up in St. Louis. He has had a nice career, but he isn't getting any younger. I like Sims as a rotation defensive Lineman. C.J. Ah You has a cool name, but as a right defensive end, he leaves a lot to be desired.
KEEP: Long, Sims, Quinn
CUT: Hall, Ah You
