    I want tom nutten back

    I want tom nutten back on the squad competing for the job at guard. I have a recurring picture in my head of nutten limping around on one leg giving us everything he had and then some at the end of last season and into the playoffs. His guts and determination is what being a ram is all about.

    I am having a very tough time finding his rookie card, does anyone have an extra 1997 JOGO ##139 to sell or trade? I dont believe that he appears on any card as a ram, only that one card from his days in the cfl.

    I like Nutten too, GC, but let's face it...his leg might fall off on the field. Now that would traumatize the kids in the stands...not to mention really hurt this team's psyche.

    I don't want the guy to risk paralysis or anything, but his heart is an immeasurable quality on this team. No whining, no griping for a new contract, no holding back so he doesn't risk lowering his value in free agency...just 110% effort regardless of pain. The guy is an on-field hero.

    I just put an autographed 8x10 photo of nutten on my rams wall of fame today. I have no available space on that wall so i had to take down fred dryer. Bottom line is that if every player had tom nuttens heart, they would all get the most out of their talent and we would be a better team. A lot of real life lessons to be learned from tom nuttens guts and sacrifice, he is now a rams hall of famer to me.

    I am sure Nutten's heart is still ready to play, but his brain may overrule the heart. His play was inspirational last season.

    Nutten will be on my all time Ram greats list.
    I think the team is well stocked at the OG position with the signing of Tucker.
    RT will be the the key to the offence this year.
