    Hit the road ______, and don't you come back, no more, no more, no more, no more!

    Which players would you like to ensure never play in a Ram uniform after this season?

    Here's my top 10:

    1. Chris Chandlerception - Totally worthless.
    2. Grant Williams - No upside as a backup, no business being a starter.
    3. Rich Coady - Worst cover jobs since William Shatner sang "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."
    4. Arlen Harris - His kick returning skills simply do not justify his roster spot.
    5. Chris Dishman - Hate to kick a guy when he's down, but... come on!
    6. Mike Furrey - What exactly does he do on this team at this point?
    7. Dane Looker - Given his dropsies/fumbleitis this year, I don't think his kick holding skills warrant his return.
    8. Tommy Polley - Despite his uneven play, he'll probably get a big FA offer from someone. Let them have him.
    9. Damione Lewis - Hate to give up on him (particularly given his U of M lineage), but now's the time to try to trade him and get some value before he becomes worthless.
    10. Jaime Martin - When Martz suggests he'll be the #2 next year, I just cringe.

    I agree for the most part...I'd keep Harris and Looker...

    I agree with all except...
    9. Damione Lewis - Hate to give up on him (particularly given his U of M lineage), but now's the time to try to trade him and get some value before he becomes worthless.
    I just can't pull the trigger on him yet. The more I watch him, the more I think he's a big bull-rush DE, not a DT. Why are we using him there? Maybe I'm wrong, and probably am, but I still think he can be a contributor on this defense. I could be fooling myself (everyone is free to tell me so, if deemed needed), but I'd like to see him moved to DE for next year.

    yeah, agree with just about everyone.

    Are you picturing Robert Thomas as a backup?

    Otherwise, include him too.

    There's a good chance you'll get your wish HUbison. I don't think Leonard Little's going to be around next year so there will be most likely an opening at DE. Seems to me though that they've already tried out Lewis at DE and he obviously didn't impress anybody or else he'd still be there. Peace

    Robert Thomas presents a dilemma. I think the Rams need a big upgrade at MLB, and I don't see him playing OLB. So, do you put a former first round pick on the bench as a situational player/backup, or do you try to trade him? If the Rams sign a starting MLB in free agency and could get a third round pick for Thomas, I'd probably do it.

    When was this, I guess I missed it. I don't remember D-Lew being moved over, especially with the injury to Kennedy. But hey, maybe they've already given him a look. If so, then chain him to a tread-mill for a month and make him a LB.

    Pretty good list and hopefully it will be pretty accurate. However, I think I would keep Looker at least through camp to see if he can turn it back around and be a useful 5th receiver.

    Generally i agree but as stated.. i wouldn;t mind seeing Lewis at DE for a season...

    Personally i'd add Turley and Cleeland to that list.

    I think that restructuring things we may have a chance at Walter Jones this offseason. That would hugely improve our line and allow Sapaia/Tercero etc to develop. We can then concentrate the draft on defense.

    I definitely disagree. We should concentrate on signing Pace before we start talking about signing another elite tackle.

    My assumption was that Pace would be signed early in the offseason

    And we'd still have enough room to sign Jones? I'm not seeing it. I'd like to see it, but I'm not seeing it.
