    Re: Rams' Linehan engaging in most dangerous game

    We could make significant progress this year defensively and still finish 8-8 or 9-7 and barely miss the playoffs? Does that make the season a failure? Does that make Linehan a failure?

    My honest opinion is this ...

    If the fans do not show up for the last two or three games because this is not a "playoff" team, than that is a black eye for the fans and the city. I've been a diehard fan for the majority of my life and the ONLY game that I have not watched when I had the opportunity was the second half of a game against the Chargers when they pulled Everett for T.J. F'in Rubley ...

    I support my Rams through thick and thin. I'll be tuning into every game and making one or two trips to St. Louis this year whether we are 12-4 or 4-12. No diehard fan would do otherwise ...

    Re: Rams' Linehan engaging in most dangerous game

    Well, that's your opinion and it's admirable but let's face it....during the end of the year it's the holiday season. Games are much more expensive these days then even ten years ago. So, you as the average have two choices....either spend some extra money on the family at Christmas or go to a game where the team is out of the playoff picture?

    Re: Rams' Linehan engaging in most dangerous game

    Was I wrong for tuning out of a game where the QB was T.J. F'in Rubley?

    And if I had a chance, I'd be going to the game also!

    Re: Rams' Linehan engaging in most dangerous game

    I think the fact that Linehan has already addressed most of the issues by adding good depth and a few probable starters on the defense; (Hall, Draft.) Should help the overall defense improve as a whole. Also we have a lot of young players who had a chance to improve and adjust to the NFL pace and have had adequate time to adjust to a new coaching scheme. Now the question on everyones mind is, will adding a troubled aging pro-bowler solve all are defensive problems? I say probably not. Running backs are going to continue to gash our defense no matter what we do and adding one player is not going help nearly as much as some of you seem to think it will. I hate to say it, but our D-line is horrible. whats to stop the offensives from double teaming this guy and going around him? (if he can even stay healthy and on the field.) Now I'm not saying don't go after the guy, but don't blame Scott for being cautious and not throwing a number one or two pick at him. Like it or not we have to rely on our defense as a whole right now.

    Ok guys....I'm glad we are all the Royal Order of Patron Ram Saints. However, I'm from the STL area, I know the crowd, they won't be there.

    Re: Rams' Linehan engaging in most dangerous game

    Well, that is sad that they don't come. Pretty pathetic if you ask me ...

    If we were to get Jenkins, having him draw double teams is exactly what we would want. If opposing offenses are throwing two guys at Jenkins, or anyone else for that matter, that frees up someone else out there in space to make the play ...

    Look at some of the best DT's in football and they don't have gaudy statistics at all. But watch the game film and see they attention they gather. It makes everyone better ...

    "Wasted" is such an extreme word Tx. You don't think he did anything to build and improve the team from the complete insane asylum that was 2005?

    The Rams blew two games against the Seahawks that really upset me and I'm just going on how most were mad as heck at Martz for blowing games so why not hold Linehan to the same standard?

    Fair enough, but Linehan was a first year head coach going through the growing pains all first year head coaches go through, while Martz had a pattern of making questionable decisions during his entire tenure with the Rams, long after his first year. Linehan deserves the benefit of the doubt after taking over a franchise that was in complete chaos from top to bottom and everywhere in between. To say that he "wasted" his first year is a little over the top, don't you think?

    Not arguing, discussing! Aren't the words we choose what it's all about?

    What would you say to some Newcastle?
