The Bernie bits
Martz made the announcement today.
Groce (knee) is doubtful for Sunday and Garrett (foot) is iffy.
So the Rams are moving Aeneas back to cornerback, where he had all those Pro Bowl seasons.
Either Lucas or Cody will start at free safety, but they want to ready newcomer Kwamie Lassiter for the job.
Martz suggested that the move is temporary, because he expects Travis Fisher and Groce to be back in about three weeks.
Asked if AW still had the speed to play CB, Martz said yes, because his problems have been related to turf toe -- and the stopping and restarting required by the CB position. And Martz said Williams is no longer hurting with the toe.
The reason the move is being made now are the injuries to Groce and Garrett.
In other words, what choice do they have?
I'd rather have AW lined up at CB to face Joe Horn than, say, Dwight Anderson. It could be moot because the Saints are loaded at WR. I taped their first two games, and addition to Horn, Stallworth and Pathon are playing WR at a high level. The Rams probably don't have the CBs to match up effectively with this group, even with AW. But he surely will help stop any bleeding, because he's physical and smart and knows all the tricks of the trade.
And again, the move is temporary until the wounded CBs get healthy.

Anyway, we know they are going to pass all day. I say we roll the dice, and blitz the entire 4 quarters. Sometimes we are going to get beat on single coverage, but the rest of the downs should be filled with plenty of Brooks bashing. It's not the most tactically sound theory, but it is definitely the most exciting and most aggressive. If the O gets rolling, we may win in a good old fashioned slobberknocker"Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
