    There were some great catches yesterday, but you can't beat Amendola's diving, stretched out one-handed grab. It was absolutely amazing.
    Do you think that the Ram's receivers are "stepping it up" due to the quality of the throws that they are now catching? How many great quarterbacks also had great receivers who may have never been noticed if not for the passes?

    My point simply being that great receivers are born of great passers.

    Go Rams!

    Re: Danny's catch

    I saw it and was stunned. I was a college goalkeeper (wussy soccer, yes, I know) and the catch reminded me of a world cup soccer goal keeper's reaction save to a point blank shot.

    Simply amazing catch. Won't get the love it deserves b/c it wasn't a TD catch.

    Re: Danny's catch

    I think if we are gonna keep Danny (which obviously we are) he needs to put on some serious muscle this off-season.

    We will use Gilyard as our return guy (like Az-Hakim). Danny is a nice player, but to be a serious player in the NFL, he needs to bulk up some so we can play over the middle for 16 games for a career.

    He obviously has quicks, but isnt a player maker after the catch yet.

    Great call on the holt grab vs the seahawks. That was a great catch, but i think danny's grab was better. I will NEVER let Holt off the hook for not making the catch on the deep ball in the carolina playoff game.

    Ramming speed to all

    Re: Danny's catch

    Our D.A. is a very good WR in the making, i.e., with the potential to be excellent. A few more games this season and he's there.

    I keep saying that Danny reminds me of Kevin Curtis, agile, shifty, smart; soft hands [Vs. Raven he had that other nice 36 yard catch]. Yes, I agree: if one compares DA's speed with Ricky Proehl's against a chronometer, maybe one would beat the other here and there, one way or the other. But I like GC's Proehl inference on Amendola.

    This group of Ram players -- Amendola, Bradford, Clayton, Gibson, etc. -- is just now gelling. It also seems the gears of the OL are meshing correctly, firmly. Along with our TEs, I look forward to the Rams passing game to develop strong and scoring points!

    Go Danny-o / Danny-a!

    Bradford is no doubt a factor here. All you have to do is look at his perfect throw to Gibson for the TD. But I also think the receivers are playing better and stepping up. The catches by Amendola and Clayton are prime examples. Those were by no means perfect passes by Bradford, but they were still caught, in extraordinary fashion. The drop count appears to be improving as well.

    Re: Danny's catch

    what's the opposite of silver lining?.... copper trim?

    anyways, its just too bad that D.A.'s amazing catch on 3rd and extra long, followed by SJ's monster 4th down conversion both failed to keep the drive alive due to the illegal formation penalty. given the effort and talent, i was really sad to see that their back to back efforts were for not... but its truly a refreshing thing to see our boys exhibiting some talent along with their obvious heart.

    well done Rams. cheers!

    He is officially listed as taller and heavier than Welker. I think he'll be ok.
