    Re: Holt's Comments on Donnie Avery
    Posted: 13 May 2008 22:35 pm

    Pretty easy to figure out.
    Torry has been hearing all offseason how the Rams veteran WRs are old and slow and don't get yards after the catch. He's had Al Saunders holler at him in a film session, for always going down after making a catch instead of getting some yards. He's been hearing how the Rams added speed and YAC after drafting Avery.

    Big Game isn't going to play along with that one.

    It's pride.

    I give 100 percent, unabashed kudos to Al Saunders.

    Every guy on this offense needs to be challenged after the disgrace of 2007.

    The standards have to be raised again.

    And as good as Holt is, he can be better.

    No free passes.

    Saunders looked at film and didn't recognize Holt, because all he saw was Holt catching the ball and going down. And he asked Holt: where is the guy I used to coach?

    If Holt doesn't like it?

    Big effin' deal.

    I for one am grateful that someone is trying to raise the standards.

    Re: Bernie: Column on Chris Long
    Posted: 11 May 2008 23:47 pm

    I mentioned a few guys in Saturday's column who had double-digit sacks as rookie DE. But historically the odds are against it. I noticed while doing research (I wasn't able to print it all) that a few rookie DE were able to get 7, 8 sacks. That's a good total. if Long can do that, it's a nice season - and then it's a question of when and if he can take it to the next level. Justin Smith had 8.5 sacks as a rookie and to this point hasn't cracked double digits - and in fact has become less productive as a pass rusher. Playing the run is a necessity and Long should be good at it.

    Post subject: Re: Bernie, Can Linehan become Tom Coughlin?
    Posted: 14 May 2008 22:01 pm

    Same principle ... which is: coach must have a better rapport with players.

    But different personalities are in play... if anything Linehan has to be more forceful and demanding, where as Coughlin had to turn it down a couple of notches.

    Whats worse: Edmonds to CHI or Bruce to SF?

    We were just talking about this on the radio -- good question, fun question.

    Bruce for sure.

    Original STL Ram. Here for the rising. His career rise coincided with the rise of the STL Rams. Won a SB with his catch.

    Edmonds already had achieved good success with another franchise before coming here.

    Well I'm not sure about last year being a disgrace, but I agree We do need to challenge our players a bit more.

    Unfortunately, two years from now no one will remember that the Rams were decimated by injury, but the record will show we were 3-13. To me that record is disgraceful. Here's to turning the who thing around in 2008! We have the personnel to do it if they stay healthy. Go Rams!
