Respect for themselves, their teammates and their obligations as professionals supersede any negative feelings they may have against their head coach.
    No Im not saying that the players will purposefully underperform, what Im saying is that this current organization has taken the heart out of this team, and doenst know how defribulate it.

    Well, if that's the case, why would Holt (who obviously has a feel for the pulse of the team) bother to call anybody out, in public no less? What would be the point? He obviously disagrees with your opinion here.

    Holt has had the feeling of success. He is frustrated due to the lack of success and is doing what any person who has tasted success and sees that is is gone, perhaps forever,would do.

    Holt knows that Linewho's regime is utterly lackluster, as evidenced by his thorough frustration/outburst at Linewho lastyear.

    Holt is attempting what Linewho cant-- to motivate his team. Linewho has instilled the will to lose in this team, and cant get them over it.

    The Rams need a change-- and that starts with Linewho.

    Because Torry Holt is classy player who remembers what it's like to win, and is sick of losing, even if Linehan isn't.

    Much have been made of the Rams offensive line.
    Everyone knows the line has struggled and has been riddled with injuries.
    Torry Holt calling out these guys only states the obvious.
    The last few seasons has seen Torry's game slip a little also, with his share of drops passes.
    Its OK for Torry to speak out, but why now? It's a little too late, words should have been spoken last year or in camp.
    the Rams are experiencing hard times, lets not single out one particular group.
    This is a Team, and the team as a whole STINKS!!!
    Everyone on this team needs to take a look in the mirror and challenge themselves, including and especially, Torry Holt.

    Okay, so there is still heart in this team and the players are indeed trying their best to get back on track, regardless of what any of them feel about the coaching staff.

    Getting back to my original point, Holt definitely called out the right guys, whose performance the rest of the season will be the lynchpin of success or failure for the Rams.
