    Does Will Witherspoon still play for us?

    If he does, can you please tell me where he has been this season? Short of the INT last week, all I see is him constantly getting ran over, and being a few moments late to just about every play he has a chance to make ...

    Is that groin still bothering him maybe?

    I do have to agree he is missing in action. I really do think we need a thumper at mlb. I know spoon has performed well at mlb but he struggles against runs up the gut. I think moving him outside would make him a more effective lb which is scray for offenses imho.

    There are several reason for his play:
    1. He needs to be on the outside, why he is inside is both sad and frustrating to see on a weekly basis.

    2. He has no DT/NT to keep him clean, with his speed he should be able to snuff out any run and meet them in the backfield, but when you have 300lb. people getting blown (and I mean blown) off the ball and in your face....well its easy to be MIA. Look at the runs made against us our D-Line get's literally blown up & knocked back and I don't care what you say that's about heart & desire.

    This does not explain his lack of production this year versus last ...

    Draft Maulauga. I know we need OL help. But we could REALLY use a true MLB and why not start young? Have a true MLB, move 'Spoon back outside and have Draft and Culberson switching in and out.

    Love to see a genuine run-stuffing MLB brought in and witherspoon moved into Pisa's spot, but Haslett has been adamant about Witherspoon at MLB and he also seems to be a fan of Pisa's, for whatever reason I don't know as I think Pisa is a sub at best. Then again, it's now Venturi's defense so who knows?

    I hope we are far enough back in the 1st round to not have a chance of drafting him. I think Malauga will be a top 10-12 pick. That doesn't mean I wouldn't love to have him.

    Go Rams!
