    Re: D. Hall washed up??

    Somethings don't seem to change.........

    Amongst those is that our special teams are in need of a boost. A Dante hall who gets anywhere near to his previous form will be a upgrade over what we've seen over the last 2-3 seasons. Any improvement in field position and scoring will be welcome.

    Another is that it's amazing how quickly some people who follow the league seem to feel that it's okay to pronounce someone as 'finished' given a drop off in production oblivious to any context. A change of scenery could work wonders.

    Form is temporary, class is permanent and if he manages to show flashes of it this season then it'll be more than we're used to and well worth a 5th rounder.

    For those in the dark, you'll usually find it in with the farming magazines. Lot of bull**** there, too.

    Not sure I follow you're comment here. You see, by definition, EVERY kicker/punter kicks/punts to EVERY KR/PR. That's what makes them KRs and PRs........they return kicks and punts. Chris Carr, Terrence McGee, Justin Miller, Terrence Wilkins, Josh Cribbs.......all of them near the top of the league in KR average AND total returns. Kevin Faulk, Devin Hester, PacMan Jones, Eddie Drummond, Mewelde Moore....all of them near the top of the league in PR average AND total returns.

    Do kickers and punters not "fear" them either?

    Have fun watching Dante juke left n right, followed by him running backwards in trying to avoid defenders because of the piss poor blocking STL has on special teams.
    I've watched Dante alot the past couple seasons and clearly he doesn't look the same, though the blocking he got recently wasn't near to what it was when Vermeil was the head coach. Maybe a change of scenary will be good for him, but the ST blocking in STL isn't exactly great either, so who knows. What I do know is that Dante is better than anything the Rams have had since Hakim, probably even better than him.
