The Draft is Over

There is nothing like the weekend of the draft. For the next week afterwards, fans have a chance to dissect what their teams did, did they improve their chances or were they lethargic and stayed the course of status quo?

After about the second week after the draft, all you hear are crickets. Nothing. Nada. This is the worst time of the year for football fans.

As Rams fans, we hear the things that the players are doing in the community, and what elementary school or hospital they went to visit. Crickets.

Entering the last part of Spring we get to hear things start getting a little louder. Organized 'team' activities begin. Rookie mini camp. New players learning plays and finding where the bathrooms are at the workout facilities.

It's getting a little louder. The veteran players report for mini camp. Now there is some noise. This eases us into the summer, to the arrival of full workouts. Now the noise is cranking and we have something to talk about.

I am glad the draft is over, it's time to go to work.
