    Bailey's skills

    If they won't let him play offense, could he play safety? He's got the speed and can tackle. Is he big enough?

    I'm the guy that walks up after the argument's started.

    Speed and can tackle, although against kick off return guys who usually aren't big. How well can he tackle against running backs? And shed blocks and play zone and man to man coverage?

    He's a wide receiver.

    Ahh shucks, he is athletic enough. He is the same size as our current safeties. He's smart and is showing to be a team player.

    Sure, I won't be surprised if Bailey eventually becomes a great Rams receiver, but we're so thin at the safety position he could be great there too. He's already the gunner on ST for godsakes. You can't play gunner and not be tough.

    Bailey isn't athletic enough...thats his problem...he has good ball skills and a good feel but just not fast enough, or big enough....kind of stuck as wr #5 and he isn't great on special teams which makes it hard for him to keep a roster spot....

    His best chance to succeed is to hire a bodybuiding coach and try to get as big as possible to give him a chance in the next seasons.....

    I think the Rams have missed an opportunity by not playing Jake Long at DT and OT.
    Heck, the letters even look sort of alike.

    Huh? He ran a 4.52 at the Combine. Since when is that not fast enough?

    He's the No. 5 WR right now, but that may change. Seems as though Austin Pettis is getting less playing time lately. I suspect we'll see more of Bailey during the last 6 games of the season.

    Why, yes I am serious. Don't you think he could be good? Having the mentality that a player is only good at one thing is kinda one dimensional thinking. Hecker practices to be a QB. Long looked good as a running back in the Colts game returning the fumble. And their are other examples on other teams like Tebow at Tight end and Deon Sanders as well everything, Cordel Stuart at slash. People can learn new things to help our team grow.

    GO RAMS!!!

    Re: Bailey's skills

    The dude can get down and tackle is all I'm sayin. There are a few of our DBs that should take some notes.

    Great athletes can, will and have played other positions.

    Stedman looks like a football player

    Would love to see less of Pettis and more Stedman the rest of the season. He needs some playing time to adjust to the NFL at Wr.

    Have you been watching the games? He has been awesome on coverage.

    He's a core special teams player, which means he plays on all four of the main units; kickoff coverage, punt coverage, kickoff return and punt return.
    He's always in the face of the returner and had a huge hit.

    He will get his chance to play WR sooner then later. To say he's won't keep a roster spot is crazy talk.

    We didn't draft Stedman solely on the basis of his height, weight, or speed. Bailey appears to be a very good all-round football player - period. As a rookie, he is currently helping us mostly on special teams. I truly believe there will come a time when he'll be hard to keep off the field. Instant gratification (for fans and coaches alike) on occasion does occur with rookies, most times - not.

    Good football players come in all shapes, and sizes. I believe Bailey will prove he is worthy of having been selected by the Rams, and then some ..

    Sometimes you find a nugget among the turds on the PD board.


    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... ies-at-57/ Todd Christensen, All-Pro tight end, dies at 57

    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 13, 2013, 12:18 PM EST

    Todd Christensen, a tight end who twice led the NFL in receptions, has died at the age of 57.

    The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Christensen, who had battled liver disease and other illnesses, died this morning in a Utah hospital. Brigham Young University, where Christensen was a star running back, announced that he had died of complications from surgery.

    A second-round pick of the Cowboys in the 1978 NFL draft, Christensen played well as a fullback in his first preseason before suffering a broken foot and missing his rookie season. In his second season, the Cowboys told him he was switching from fullback to tight end, he balked, and the team cut him. He was picked up by the Giants but was unhappy there as well, still didn’t want to play tight end, and was quickly cut again.

    But the Raiders were able to persuade him that tight end was the position he was best suited for, and he thrived. In 1982 he began to emerge as one of the best tight ends in football, and in 1983 led the league in receptions with 92 while making the first of his five consecutive Pro Bowl appearances. He would lead the league in receptions again in 1986, with 95, and he won two Super Bowl rings during his time with the Raiders.
