    Re: 2005 Free Agents: Offensive Tackle

    I doubt that we'll have cap room, but, it would be nice to pick up Walter Jones of Seattle. Does anybody see any scenarios where we could afford him? Perhaps Marshall renegotiates as a backup, Pace signs a long term contract and Turley's cap hit is reduced due to injury retirement? Just a thought.

    Go Rams!!!

    Re: 2005 Free Agents: Offensive Tackle

    Anyone on that list would be better than Williams or Turley at this point

    You mean him AND Pace? No, I don't see any scenarios in which that would occur. We can't even afford to sign Pace right now, let alone two tackles in that talent bracket.

    So would I, at this point. But I think if we draft a rookie lineman in the first or second round, we should be prepared for it to be a process and not an immediate answer.

    I agree. Let's draft our RT. However, if we use our 1st round pick, we could find a starter in this OT-rich draft. If we finish 6-10 (an unfortunate but distinct possibility), we may even find a starter with our 2nd round pick. It's a good crop of tackles this year, if some of the underclassmen come out.

    Re: 2005 Free Agents: Offensive Tackle

    It should be noted that as of right now, the Rams have the 17th pick in the draft.

    a few more loses and we will move up from that position. at this point, I'd rather see thathappen.

    I can handle not making the playoffs alot better than I can losing in the wild card round ( which is exactly what will happen if they make the playoffs this year ).

    Why the Hell is everyone so enamoured with Turley...the dude was a cancer on the Saints and he was a cancer on the Rams last year. Get over him already. If we're not allowed to talk about a certain ex Rams QB....please give up the Turley ass-kissing already. I'm tired of it!

    1) Turley is still a Ram.
    2) Cancer or not, he was a talent at right tackle that we really miss right now on the field.

    Only a technicality because he's still getting paid. As far as being a Ram in spirit...bull****.....he bailed on the team as soon as he was injured. I can't even tell you how many times over the course of my life as a football fan I've seen players lost for the season to injury and yet there they were all season long on the sidelines supporting their teammates, giving them encouragement, etc. where the hell is Turley...even the coach has no idea. He's a Ram? My ass he is. If he was a Ram....he'd be there at gametime. If he was the leader he pretended to be last year, maybe he should have stuck around to help coach his replacement. He's supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread according to some people...so isn't it likely he might have something to teach the youngsters? The dude's a loser!

    There's a bunch of other teams in the league that have to get along without this so called "talent" on their team....I think we can too.

    When he stops being on the Rams' payroll, then perhaps people will stop talking about him. Until then, regardless of the "spirit" stuff and his attitude, he's still a Ram, like it or not.

    You think we can, but honestly, we're not doing a good job of it right now, are we? Williams is horrible on the right side, and Saipaia is unproven and raw. While we may draft a right tackle to replace Turley, signing him to a multi-year extension means that if we choose to cut him, we're going to pay for it.

    I won't ague that point, but you know what? He was here last year and our O-line wasn't that much better.

    Well, for the "good of the team" we bit the bullet with Warner..so I say we do the same with Turley. I don't want someone with his attitude on the team.

    It looks more and more like Turley will be making a return. Like him or not, he's a good player and would save us a first round draft pick that we could spend on this swiss cheese defense.

    I'm sure some still hold a grudge because he supported the starting QB back in 2003 too.
