    Out with the old this offseason?

    NFL teams need veteran leadership, but that leadership needs to come from players who are still productive. In 2007, I see the Rams veteran core consisting of players like Bulger, Jackson, Holt, Bruce, Pace, Little, Witherspoon and Tinoisamoa.

    Other players who are a bit long in the tooth, in my opininion, may need to go. While the Rams may not have hit rock bottom and entered a pure "rebuilding" mode, they are a team that is building toward the future, rather than trying to extend the success of the past.

    So, which players no longer fit into this blueprint?

    (NOTE: I've included Bruce on the list not because I think any logical person would think he's too old to be productive, but rather to account for those who believe that the Rams should let Bruce go in order to re-sign and elevate the younger Curtis to a starting role).

    I voted for Timmerman and McCollum, though I might reconsider this if either is (1) willing to restructure to free up cap space, and (2) open to a reserve role.

    I also voted for Faulk, for reasons I've stated previously.

    Finally, I voted for Coakley, as I think his role could be filled with youth.

    I decided to keep Glover and Chavous. While both may need to accept more of a platoon role, I think that they are both productive enough to warrant keeping them for their leadership abilities.

    I would keep Glover unless we can get another pressure dt(Warren Sapp who is having a resurgence this year) but I would definetly let the donut brothers go and Coakley. Signing Coakley and Claiborne was definetly a huge mistake as we should of pursued Antonio Pierce.

    I voted for Timmerman, McCollumn, Coakley and Faulk (I feel like a traitor).

    Interesting, very interesting. :\

    My vote included Glover & Coakley only [Fisk is a given to leave I suppose].

    I look forward to the Rams off-season / preseason movements. We'll see.

    Timmerman and McCollum are my two. Coakley hasnt been that bad in his time here and should be a solid backup for Tinoisamoa. If Faulk decides to come back that means he thinks he has something left in the tank. I dont expect Stephen Davis to be here next season, so it would be nice to have someone as versatile as Faulk backing up Steven Jackson.

    Glover, Frerotte, and Chavous are all dependable players. And I wouldnt mind seeing them all back next season.

    The doughnut brothers and faulk, chavous is 2nd on the team with tackles, I feel glover can step it up, bruce can still go, and coakly is a good backup

    the fact that alot of people are voting Faulk must mean that big Steve has won over the rams fans. Because of my strong affection for krispy kreme donuts i cannot vote for the donut bros.,they can play until there 50 if they want.

    I voted Coakley because frankly i don't think he's done anything for this team.

    i disagree with this one. coak has come up with a few big plays this year like the int in 'zona and the int a couple weeks ago. he is at least a solid veteran backup.

    This was a no brainer for me. Timmerman, McCullum, Faulk, and Coakley. Even though he's not an "old guy", I'd give Barron one more year to measure up or he's outta here.
