    Is it a good omen that he played for CSU?

    Just curious: is Turley still somewhere w/the Rams, say, at the sidelines?

    Saipaia is a natural guard, I believe. Tom Nütten has played RT w/the Rams.

    We're desperate. Why not use old Tom at RT? I'll have to call Coach John Matsko.

    I hope this kid is the answer to our RT woes. Why isn't Tecero starting at LG, I thought he did a decent job when he was in there.

    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but we should have brought Big Jackie back to start this week. this game is crucial.

    Its true seatown, but i wouldnt get too excited if i was you. Grant Williams has been so bad that Blaine Sapamamilamula cant be much worse, practice squad or not.

    Once again, he wasn't from the practice squad.

    I'm sure you're right about Williams. If I remember correctly Williams used to play for the Hawks and barely made the team as a backup.

    Re: Rams have a new right tackle starting

    See avatar. Closely. That's a RT! Anybody remember him?

    Sure, we need a RT n-o-w, I know. But all of a sudden I wish we had big bad Bob Brown with us, or Jackie Slater. Charlie Cowan.

    I wish we'll be ready tomorrow Vs. Seattle. RT and all.

    Sounds like a blended clone between Saipaia, Manumaleuna, and Tinoisamoa. (Hm, a Hawaiian godzilla, I like the thought. We could use him. HaHa!)

    Starting someone with only a year experience isn't exactly instilling confidence in me. Poor kid will get his first taste of Martz's wrath and probably crumble.

    Just heard on the radio pregame that Grant Wistrom is still nursing a bad knee and probably won't play. Now THAT gives me confidence. That is one less threat on their defense that the O line will have to deal with. The key to this game just might boil down to who isn't there on the OTHER side of the ball.
