    Rams are happy T.O. is elsewhere: RAMS NOTEBOOK

    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Saturday, Nov. 12 2005

    In recent weeks, Rams players have coped with a soap opera of their own, with
    the Mike Martz-front office feud boiling over into public. But at least that
    situation didn't unfold continuously before their eyes, and in some cases,
    right in the locker room. Such has been the case with wide receiver Terrell
    Owens in Philadelphia.

    "It's just one of those situations you kind of look at, and you're glad it's
    not here in this locker room," Rams offensive tackle Orlando Pace said. "I'm
    glad we don't have those types of guys here. That's the Eagles' problem, and
    they're dealing with it."

    After his latest spat with the Eagles, Owens has been suspended for the season.
    Unless he wins his NFL Players Association grievance with the Eagles, Owens
    could also be out $823,000 in salary - a fact that did not go unnoticed by Rams
    players.

    "He's a great player, but he's definitely missing a lot of money," linebacker
    Chris Claiborne said. "So we'll see how it goes in the future, and I hope
    everything works out the way he thinks it's going to work out. But this league
    is a tough league. The NFL was here before him, and it's going to be here after
    him. So you've got to respect the game."

    Before joining the Rams this season, Claiborne was a teammate of wide receiver
    Randy Moss for two years in Minnesota. Moss has been involved in his share of
    controversies in the NFL, but Claiborne doesn't think a comparison between the
    two receivers is merited.

    "Not even the same," Claiborne said. "It is in some ways, as far as being
    outspoken. But I think (Moss) always felt that when he was offended, then
    that's when he said something. He just didn't say something out of spite."

    For his part, Pace is tired of hearing of T.O.

    "It's a situation where I think the media is, like, in overkill right now,"
    Pace said. "ESPN has become the T.O. Station."

    Rainy weather?

    Sunday's forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 40s at kickoff and rain
    in Seattle. Since the move to St. Louis in 1995, the Rams are 5-10 when the
    temperature is below 50 degrees at kickoff. But one of those cold-weather
    victories came last Jan. 8 in Seattle, when the Rams won 27-20 in a first-round
    playoff game.

    It was 45 degrees at kickoff that day.

    Despite Seattle's reputation for precipitation, it has rained only once in 28
    regular-season games since the team moved into Qwest Field in 2002.

    "For me the rain is not a problem," said running back Steven Jackson. "I played
    in it in college (at Oregon State). To me, it just means it's going to be more
    of a running game."

    hmmmm guess some of them may hear and watch what the media is reporting.....

    "For me the rain is not a problem," said running back Steven Jackson. "I played in it in college (at Oregon State). To me, it just means it's going to be more of a running game."
    Good point Steven. Running and rain go together.

    I For One Think T.O. Would Look Good Wearing The Golden Horns.

    (Remember A Few Years Ago, When T.O., Playing For Forty-niners, Got His Bell Rung At The 'EDWARDJONES Dome' Against The Rams?
    I Think Jeff Garcia Also With The Forty-niners At Time, Was Knocked Out Of That Game Too.:O
    - AHHH MEMORIES!!!!)
