    These are out of order and just the eyewitness stuff. Doss will try to answer all the questions at his next time allowed on the net. AOL's circuits for dial up from his room are understandably busy......

    Players i spoke with: Hargrove: "hey,how is the ankle and Knee,tony?" Hargrove "its fine,not really that bad i'm okay".I replied, "You had us worried,it sounded bad" Hargrove"i had myself worried on that one". Isaid "you know I've been Hyping you up to my buddies as the "new" man at DE the next comming great one" Hargrove,"Don't worry i won't let you down".I said"They say but you missed a year of school and maybe got drafted alittle high" hargrove "The Rams were lucky to stay with me and they and everyone will see it was worth it". Hargrove was working by himself in the afternoon running backwards on that ankle,cutting and shifting around on it.He was doing this alone off to the side with no coach.He won't be out long. Larry Turner "Thanks for the autograph,hope you get some playing time". Turner- "i'm getting over half the Reps at center now" i replied "Thats sounds good". Turner wasthe mainstay at center most of the afternoon Practice. Ryan pickett - " tell your buddy Kennedy were all thinking about him" Pickett, "I will,that was a tough break for him he wasn't hit just planted his foot wrong"."He broke the 5th metatorsal in his foot .Thats 6-8 weeks,and then he is not no little guy either".

    Wow, great report guys. Thank you.
    It was good to read that Bulgar was doin great! Let's hope that it continues. Also, the DL sounds like it stood up nicely.

    Nice report. Things sound very up beat, aside from the injuries. I'm getting good vibes from this team. Lot's of quality depth.

    Wow! This gets me excited. I know you can't tell much from a few written lines, but this makes it sound like Bulger's been working on his long ball and there has been some improvement. It sounds like our receivers are really flying. Damn, I can't wait to see them in action in their first televised pre-season game. Bring on the season already!

    Thanks for the great report, ramavenger. The D was stuffing the run, the offense was ticking, and Hargrove sounds excited to prove the naysayers wrong. Preseason will be fun to watch.

    Re: Eyewitness report from Rams Scrimmage vs Bears

    I was there, where were you? LOL just kidding. It was so crowded, it was half over before I could even find my own sister. Thanks for the play-by-play, I won't have to give my 2-cents worth.

    I will note that I was disappointed in Michna, especially since he was playing in a stadium where he played in college. But now I see they've already signed Smoker so he never really had a shot. I hope Russ takes a page from Warner's notes and plays for Europe or Arena to keep up what skills he has and improve on the ones he doesn't so he can have another shot next year. I wasn't surprised by the lack of participation by key players. This is where we find out what the rookies and new recruits can do.

    Ok, I'm a woman, I couldn't resist putting in my 2-cents worth after all.

    P.S. I can vouch for the improvement in Bulger's long game. Nice to see after the performance in the quarterback challenge.
