    I'm not sure what to make of this shin splints thing. It seems like Curtis is having a hard time battling this. Hopefully it's not something that is going to come back and haunt him, because I think he (and McDonald together) really add a lot to the offensive side of the ball.

    I hear you nick, but who do you want to sit, ie how is he going to get playing time. Looker appears locked in at #3 , leaving mcdonald and curtis to share time at #4, and that doesnt even count furrey. Man are we deep at the receiver spot..And can you imagine that people on this board were clamoring for raushan woods, who may be very, very good, but would have been pure excess to us.

    ramming speed to all

    sign the big man

    If Looker don't start hanging on to the ball he might not be playng much longer.

    Exactly what I was going to say, Wraith. Looker seems to have a problem protecting the ball. He showed it in the preseason I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) and he showed it yesterday. I've no question about his skills as a possession receiver, but I think if he continues to have problems holding onto the rock, then McDonald will probably make a push for the slot receiver position and Looker will be the one splitting time with Curits.

    Well, just like Charles Rodgers, questions are starting to emerge about Curtis' durability. The only comfort I take from the platooning at back-up WR is that the Rams tried the WR screen with McDonald finally. Hakim's YAC on this play is what propelled the Rams passing game in large part. Maybe after all these years of inadequate 3rd WR, McDonald is ready to make a play this year. Looker may be 3 on the depth chart but he is Proehl's replacement, not Hakim's.

    Time to move McDonald up to 3 and while they are at it move him to KR also.

    I watched McDonald TORCH Trufant in college. The kid has potential.

    Shin splints are caused when a person runs too much in a short period of time...He obviously came back to full speed a bit to quickly(So did Turley). It's painful, but nothing like a cronic injury...I had them in college and they went away after about a month
