    Newson activated, shivers waived

    According to an article just posted on the Post-dispatch site, the rams have activated tony newson and waived shivers, the first draft pick from this year to be cut. Apparantly, shivers, who was labeled a steal in round 5, did not pick up the defense very well. Aeneas probably doesnt have more than another 5 years before retirement, so at some point we will need to find a potential replacement, but i guess it wont be shivers.

    ramming speed to all

    I think you're being pretty generous. I'd give him three max, but I hope I'm wrong.

    Anyways, I was very optimistic about Shivers so this is discouraging to me. Hopefully they're able to either put him on the practice squad or, well, I guess that's about it.

    Question Re: Newson activated, shivers waived

    Hell, Steve, some don't get your sense of humor. "God" plays an extra year, Shivers goes back to cutting lawns.......that's what you meant, buddy?

    By the way, Rams re-signed Bayer and Smith/Glaxo..........Hargrave a spokesman?

    Just throwing you s&^T......... Be looking for your painted face on Sunday........bringing the daughter??

    I hope this isn't another case of giving up on a young player too soon. Although, our defense is about as basic as it gets. If he can't understand our vanilla brand then he doesn't have much hope picking up anywhere else.

    What a shame. I thought he was going to be an impact player early. Oh well.
