Congratulations to the Rams for conducting a shrewd 1994 draft. Instead of taking a future franchise quarterback to lead them over the next 10-15 years, the Ram brain trust concurred that any quarterback, even Chris Miller on crutches, can hand off to Jerome Bettis in the Ground Chuck offense.
After watching several segments of Sunday’s draft, it struck me that I saw no evidence of any on-line computer support. No PCs, no terminals, just worried-looking guys in their “war rooms” sifting through clipboards full of paper. It must be WW II they are preparing for. No wonder it takes so long. I half expected the next draft announcement to be made by a man wearing a green eyeshade, celluloid cuff protectors and looking strangely like Bert Bell.
