    That draft is about as bad as the safety record of the AMC Pacer.

    Good gracious. I like the Vic pick, and Setterstrom, when healthy, has been adequate. But overall, that 2006 draft has to rank up there with 2000, 1989, & 1982 as the worst in Rams history.

    Huh? If he's a good blocker then why-according to you-have the Whiners struggled in short-yardage situations over the years? How can he be a "good blocker" and yet not be "much help in short yardage situations"?

    Seems to be a contradiction here.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    You may get your wish soon enough. Isn't 2009 the last year of Klop's rookie contract? For some reason I think it is, but i haven't checked...

    i can see the sense in keeping him around until his contract runs out. After that though...

    Joe Klopfenstein is Not A Bust! I Think We just Never used Him Right, He can easily bounce back. After watching Some of his HighLights On NFL.COM He Is Not Bad!

    Well ... there are supposed to be at the very least 5 O-linemen (along with possibly a FB, up to 2 tight ends and a receiver or two) blocking on short yardage. I don't know how good a blocker Billy B really is, but Spags and Devaney evidently feel he can block. Say what you will, but the whiners blocked us good enough to win both games against us last year ... Hopefully the Bajema signing will pay dividends early and often for SJ. Heck, he might even be able to catch a little bit too ..

    Re: Bajema agrees to terms

    Are we going to pick a part every move the brass makes? I for one am going to wait and see the product on the field before I start second guessing the moves that are being made.

    GO RAMS!!!!

    Because teams don't usually run an off-tackle play in short-yardage situations; they go up the gut. Unless they inserted Bajema at center, guard or fullback on those plays, I don't know how he could be blamed for their problems.

    Klopfenstein has highlights? Did he do something with his hair?

    Isn't Joe Klopfenstein's Highlights kind of like Dexy's Midnight Runner's Greatest Hits?

    Speaking of musical/football oddities,Eileen ta-loo-rah-yay, check out Chip's songwriting prowess, per The PD today:

    Ive been writing songs since I was a kid. And this girl in Nashville _ Dayna Lane _ recorded a bunch of my songs, Rosenbloom told the Post-Dispatch. Two of them I wrote with Lauren Christy, and eight other songs made the album, which is called Anything You Want. The single, Ill Keep Believing, is on over a hundred radio stations.

    I listened to I'll keep Believing. Treacle pop country but entertaining in a sad way. No offense but Chip seems a bit of a dork & the song is a little sad.Kind of like watching Klop try to block.

    The song's on nap-no link-ster.

    EDIT: ps Dayna's kinda cute. She's no Michelle The Reheaded Cheerleader but.... I wonder if Chip.....?

    If you use your TE's that way, wont it tell the D on the other team what your going to run?
