    Impressed with Hedge****

    Rams | Impressed with Hedge**** - from www.KFFL.com
    Sun, 1 May 2005 09:42:54 -0700

    Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports the St. Louis Rams have been impressed with rookie FB Madison Hedge**** thus far after his performance in a recent minicamp. "He's really a powerful blocker out of the backfield," head coach Mike Martz said. "It's so hard to find guys like him, good lead blockers that can get through traffic and get on guys without getting off-balance. They're unusual guys, and I think we might have one here." Hedge**** will compete with FB Joey Goodspeed for the lone fullback roster spot.

    Re: Impressed with Hedge****

    Between the Hedgehog, the improvements to the OL and naming Jackson as the starting running back, I'd say our running game has the potential to be very impressive this year. Let's just hope Martz will take advantage of it. Looking good so far!

    Go Rams!!! :ramlogo:

    Impressed with Hedgehog

    It will interesting to see the competition between Madison Hedgehammer and Joey Goodspeed to make the team. The Irishman from ND did a decent job last year and will probably be improving this season ... but perhaps to help another team?

    May the best Ram win. Agreed, Viper, our FB position looks GOOD!

    I wouldn't want to be Joey Goodspeed right about now. His performance in 2004 was good, but obviously the Rams were looking for an upgrade and it sounds like they've found one. I'd really love to see Hedgecock make the team.

    Re: Impressed with Hedge****

    Is there any doubt that Martz is ready to be serious with the running game? Look at the offseason additions between the tackles on the O:

    Rex Tucker G - physical run blocker with nasty streak
    Richie Incognito G/C - physical run blocker with nasty streak
    Claude Terrell G - physical run blocker with nasty streak
    Madison Hedgeasterisk FB - physical run blocker with nasty streak

    Stephen Jackson named starting RB

    It looks to me like Martz' air force is preparing for a ground attack.

    But, can they pass block? That could be highly significant!

    You all are just having too much fun with his name. He must have suffered as a child. :redface:

    I would be very happy if Martz is making changes to improve the running game, but it is hard for me to believe that Martz is capable of thinking outside the passing game. I remain pessimistic, all though HUB makes some very good points regarding the running game.
