    The Bernie bits

    Bernie Bits:
    By Bernie Miklasz
    Of the Post-Dispatch
    Saturday, Jan. 29 2005



    NFL scout Chris Landry recommended these candidates when asked on
    KMOX whether the Rams should pursue inside linebackers through free agency:
    Kendrell Bell (Pittsburgh), Edgerton Hartwell
    (Baltimore), Ike Reese (Philadelphia) and Carlos
    Polk (San Diego). As for free-agent defensive tackles, Landry
    named two: Pat Williams (Buffalo) as a two-gap DT, and
    Corey Simon (Philadelphia) as a one-gap DT. ... Landry
    and other personnel experts think Georgia defensive end David
    Pollack would be a good fit for the Rams in the first round of the NFL
    draft. Landry mentions two other first-round possibilities for the Rams:
    Florida inside linebacker Channing Crowder and
    Shawne Merriman, a defensive end or outside linebacker from
    Maryland. Landry also said Missouri defensive tackle Attiyah
    Ellison, a graduate of Parkway South High School, figures to be drafted
    as early as the second round or as late as the fourth round. But it's early. A
    lot will change between now and the draft.


    In an interview on KTRS, Rams coach Mike Martz defended his handling
    of special teams - specifically addressing the support he has given the three
    previous special-teams coaches before firing them. "Nobody gives the special
    teams and special teams coach more time and latitude than what we do in both
    meeting or practice," Martz said. "They get whatever they want and I think
    that's probably a shock for some of the guys who've been here in the past
    because they have always had someone over their shoulder saying, 'It's your
    job, here's what you got, here's your practice time and here's your meeting
    time. Don't say "Well I don't need that." Yes you do, take it.' Consequently,
    there better be some dividends to that."

    ... ESPN.com recently chose "The Tackle" made by Rams
    linebacker Mike Jones to save Super Bowl XXXIV as the
    second-greatest moment in Super Bowl history. Joe Montana's pass to
    John Taylor is No. 1. ... On the flip side, Sports Illustrated's
    Don Banks cited Martz's coaching performance in the Super Bowl XXXVI
    loss to New England as the fourth-worst coaching blunder in Super Bowl history.

    Yea well upon further review (frame by frame review of the game) the officiating is by far the worst in sports history and my presentation to these rubes is forthcoming.

    IMHO the BS calls were the ones that were not called! Receivers being held way down field over and over + I will never forget Marshall coming out of the backfield, a potential dump off option, and being tackled, not bumped, or held, but tackled ! The ball was still in the QB's hand! Oh well....sour grapes I guess...

    I find it quite humorous that losing on a last second field goal makes it as the 4th worst coaching super bowl blunder.

    Personal fouls not called included. Tackling by the face mask, using the crown of the helmet as a weapon, blows to the head, tackling out of bounds. I don't have my list with me however I have been going through that superbowl frame by frame and I will be presenting proof with clips and still shots of the above. You will be the first to see the finished product. It is sickining and criminal to watch as the referee's pandered to it. Anyway those are just the personal fouls not called. there are a total of 24 clips that include holding and clock managment as well.
