    Holt laments his last drop ...

    Holt laments his drop in last Seattle game
    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Sunday, Nov. 25 2007

    The Rams didn't score a touchdown when they played Seattle last month, but Pro
    Bowl wide receiver Torry Holt literally had one slip through his fingers.

    Trailing 17-3 at the time, the Rams had a first down at the Seahawks 17
    following a 28-yard completion from Marc Bulger to Holt early in the third
    quarter. On the next play, Holt was open over the middle, but he dropped a pass
    from Bulger near the goal line.

    "If I catch that pass and we score a touchdown, it changes the game and gives
    us the momentum going back out defensively," said Holt, normally one of the
    game's most sure-handed receivers. "We had some opportunities there where we
    could have made the game a little more (competitive).

    "But we didn't take advantage of it, and I take full responsibility for that.
    It was just a sour taste coming out of that game. They really dismantled us."

    Seattle went on to win 33-6. Holt hardly was the Lone Ranger when it came to
    mistakes in that game. Rams receivers dropped five passes that day. Late in the
    first quarter, fellow Pro Bowler Isaac Bruce caught what looked like a sure TD
    pass behind the Seattle secondary.

    But the "turf monster" got Bruce. He stumbled, fell, got up, and was brought
    down from behind on a 31-yard gain to the Seahawks' 16. The Rams settled for a
    field goal.

    In a game in which Seattle blitzed 21 times, Bulger was hit a season-high 14
    times, and sacked a career-high seven times.

    BASEBALL HEAVEN

    Tight end Randy McMichael said he knew it would be an uphill struggle for fan
    support when he flew to St. Louis from south Florida after signing a free-agent
    contract last spring.

    "I knew it when I was on the plane coming here and the Cardinals were in spring
    training," McMichael said. "The whole plane was full of Cardinals fans
    (returning from spring-training trips). Maybe one or two people knew that I was
    coming to St. Louis to play with the Rams. It's a fun city, but everybody knows
    that the Cardinals are the No. 1 priority around here."

    THINKING BIG

    A modest two-game winning streak has the Rams at 2-8. They would have to win
    their final six games to avoid a losing record this season. It may be the
    longest of long shots, but that's the goal, according to linebacker Pisa
    Tinoisamoa.

    "Nobody wants to be a loser, especially at this level," Tinoisamoa said. "So to
    go ahead and turn this around like we have a chance to, that'd be the story of
    the year. As far as I'm concerned, going from 0-8 to 8-8, that's better than an
    undefeated season to me.

    "I mean, there's a lot that goes with that as far as fighting back and being a
    professional. That's definitely my goal this year."

    NOT LOOKING AHEAD

    With the success of three-man fronts in victories over New Orleans and San
    Francisco, there has been talk about the Rams going to that defensive scheme
    next season. But coordinator Jim Haslett, who has plenty of experience coaching
    the 3-4, says he's not looking that far ahead.

    That's a good thing. John Shaw hasn't said unequivocally whether coach Scott
    Linehan and his staff will be back in 2008.

    Hopefully he will use that as some more motivation tomorrow.
    Common O-line, keep Bulger up and we got a great shot!

    Absolutely. You know Torry is going to be all hyped up and ready / willing to vindicate Vs. Squawks. And you know he will be a key part of the Rams game plan even if not too many passes are actually thrown his way. Defenders will have to play around him.

    But you're right, Keenum, it is up to our OL, to save the day. :bash:
