    Rams bring in another punter

    Rams bring in another punter
    By Jim Thomas
    Of the Post-Dispatch

    So much for flying solo.

    The Rams have brought in veteran Bryan Barker to compete with rookie Reggie Hodges for the Ramsí punting job.

    Barker, 41, is a veteran of 15 NFL seasons with stints in Kansas City, Philadelphia, Jacksonville, Washington -- and last season -- Green Bay.

    Barker was a Pro Bowler in 1997. He has a career punting average of 42.1 yards, and averaged 40.1 yards per kick in 2004.

    Hodges, a sixth-round draft pick from Ball State, struggled in the Ramsí night practice Saturday at Washington University.

    Only a matter of time, considering Hodges' struggles.

    Now I find Dave Chapelle's comedy as funny as the next person but I don't think he'll be able to cut it as a punter in the NFL, GC.

    Besides, I figure Dave Chapelle will be dawning Lil' Jon accessories and heading to Titans camp to pretend he's Adam Jones.

    What's Keith English up to these days? I've only read about Hodges and I'm already sick of him.

    Alright, I'll bite. It had nothing to do with LegDeada's age. It had everything to due with the fact that distance depended on whether the long snapper hit his shin just right and direction depended on whether the heating and cooling blowers were on.

    As for Barker? Well, it just goes to show why some of us up our meds before the SpecialEd Teams hit the field ... and why some of us insist on keeping well stocked ...

    It would be nice to have a punter who can consistently pin the opposition inside the 20.
