    Rams | M. Faulk potential cap victim

    Rams | M. Faulk potential cap victim
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 20:21:56 -0800

    The New York Times reports St. Louis Rams RB Marshall Faulk is a potential salary cap victim.





    If this happened. Do you know how many fans would be pissed?

    The Rams are something like $10 mil under the cap. If Marshall doesn't come back, it will be his choice.
    I wouldn't put too much into what's posted in the NY Times.

    We are not going to cut faulk for cap reasons. I read the article when it came out. the article itself, rather than just the chart, referred to cap cuts or retirements.

    Well, I guess that, technically, every player under contract is a "potential cap victim." Its just that, with some, the potential is greater than with others.

    In Faulk's case, he's a very very very low potential cap victim.

    After Jackson's performance this year, I'd go with the almost impossible that Faulk is a cap victim! Faulk will be the go to guy if he returns. Jackson on the other hand, Well Linehan will have to turn around to look for Jackson on the bench if he even needs him!:tongue:

    You must be joking right? What offensive line were you watching. Barry Sanders wouldnt have succeeded behind that horrible line play. Jackson is fine and will improve, nice to see 1 full year is all you need to see out of a promising young back. Linehan will emphasize the power running game, and Faulk will play a third down roll if he returns.

    Yea, Jackson sucks. He only managed 10 TDs, nearly 1400 yards, 43 receptions, and 4.1 YPC behind a line, 80% of which was either a rookie or broke-down old guy. That Jackson is terrible. Let's get rid of the 22-year-old and make the 33-year-old the "go to guy". :O

    Having said all that.......there's no possible way Faulk gets cut!!! None whatsoever.

    254 carries
    1,046 yards
    4.1 ypc
    8 TDs

    43 receptions
    320 yards
    2 TDs

    Yeah, he shouldn't just be benched, he should be cut! No, he should be publicly flogged!

    I challenge anyone who would like to bench or cut steven jackson to go on the seahawks board (seahawks.net), post that thought and watch them laugh their asses off. We are our own harshest critics. Every other team in the league thinks he is a stud.

    This is exactly what I've heard. If anything, we've been castigated for not using him to the best of his abilities. Martz's leaving has frightened some around the league. They're afraid we'll start playing to our potential now.
