    Lets talk wide out

    The Rams are in an interesting position when it comes to receivers and I am not sure what they are going to do. You are are almost in a damned if you do damned if you don't position.

    Holt, Bruce and Bennett are all locks to make the team. Hall has been a shoe in up until this point for his return capabilities. But you look at all of these guys and they are no spring chickens. On the other side you have Looker and Thompson who have been with this team for awhile, know the system and provide a little youth and depth. Even farther over are the likes of Stanley, Hagens and Smith. All of these provide excitement, youth and a future. Stanley and Hagens made a strong case why they should be on this team, both as a receiver and as return men.

    It will be interesting to see how all this evolves over the next couple of weeks. Is Hall the odd man out? What about Lookers position with this team? Youth over maturity? Speed versus precision? Slot or outside? Loyalty verse skill?

    i really thought stanley played well, i like looker but he has had his chances and hasnt really proved himself. if he doesnt make the team i wont be upset, cause i know the replacement is good.

    Re: Lets talk wide out

    I think at this point that would be the best combination with Stanley on the practice squad. I am really starting to think if Stanley keeps playing the way he did some team will pick him up and we won't have the opportunity to keep him.

    I believe that is right. A team may pick up a practice squad player if they plan on keeping him on thier roster....right?

    Right. Any practice squad player can be signed by any team, provided they go onto their active roster.

    I agree, if Stanely continues to perform like he did in Minnesota, the Rams should do everything they can to keep him. As much as I hate to say it, that may include Looker being the odd man out.

    Swap Stanley for Looker and that's my choice. Someone else really needs to start practicing holding kicks for Wilkins. I have never been that impressed with Looker as a reciever and he appears to have reached his peak in that area. Stanley and Hagans both show loads of potential, and it'd be a shame to lose one of them to another team because we kept Looker to hold kicks.

    Re: Lets talk wide out

    I think that they almost have to keep Haggans given the age of Hall.

    The last time they auditioned holders for Wilkins it was a disaster before they settled on Looker.

    Stanley really showed up well and can return kicks as well.

    Thompson is going to have a really hard time with his ribs catching up to the rest.

    If Haggans or Stanley can play gunner on kick coverage (which admittedly is doubtful) they could sew up a spot on the team.

    Until that happens though, you have to assume that Looker's spot on this roster is relatively safe.

    Agreed, Stanley has been looking well and Looker never was that appealing. Would you guys pick Hagans over Looker and put him at #6?

    I have to agree with Nick on this one,I don't really want to mess with the Wilkins/Looker combo.

    Re: Lets talk wide out

    You can not keep someone on the roster just because he is a holder...can you??

    Re: Lets talk wide out

    I guess you can ask the Cowboys about how important that position is.

    Romo = starting QB / Holder ;-)
