    Leonard Little

    From the NFL Rules per NFL.com...

    Hands cannot be thrust forward above the frame to contact an opponent on the neck, face or head.
    Example

    Unfortunately, it doesn't seem the holding was captured on film, though a picture on the Rams official web site comes close. It baffles me that a guys use illegal tactics against Little yet it goes uncalled, meanwhile we get flagged for two very questionable offsides penalties.

    Obviously officiating didn't cost us this game, because the 'Hawks had a horrible call go against them on Furrey's INT and they pulled together and kept it from really hurting them. So that's not what I'm trying to say.

    But why does it seem like we're having this same discussion about officials every week at one place or another (board, chat, etc etc)? Isn't there some kind of tidbit out there that said Little didn't draw one holding penalty all of last year? It really amazes me.

    Little has been too quiet. He is not making plays. Granted he gets held, but they all get held.

    The officials are very inconsistent. They miss things on both sides.

    It is the timing of when they decide to call things that always gripes me. They will miss things, right in front of their faces and see things, from the opposing team, on a subsequent play.

    One of the offsides calls Robbie Tobeck saw one of your dlinemen offsides and he snapped it to get them called off sides.



    BTW Sean Locklear's hit on Leonard Little was on Jacked Up!

    Considering that Little only uses one move these days, zero penalties against opposing OTs does not surprise me in the least.
    Speed rush up the field is all I've seen this whole season. If the RT can take two steps to his right, Little take himself out of the play.
    Personally I think he's been quite the disappointment.......this was my thought before he missed the 2 games.

    Little has not been much of a factor. It’s a sad case when your best defensive player is your old 4th string receiver. What does that say!

    What's more revealing is that no one has to double team him anymore. In fact, there is no one on the Rams d-line that needs to be double-teamed. Is it any wonder that even when they blitz the Rmas can't get pressure ...

    You're right on Hub. I think it was a 2 yard loss. But I cheered more for that play than any other. It was nice to see Locklear get the crackback and get some kudos.

    He's been a goldmine. And he's a freaking backup!

    Let's just say he ended with 165 yards on the day instead of 167.

    Well, that is.......one way to look at it.
