    Rams | Saipaia to Start in Place of Tucker

    Rams | Saipaia to Start in Place of Tucker
    Wed, 14 Sep 2005 17:46:31 -0700

    St. Louis Rams OT Blaine Saipaia will start the team's Week 2 game in place of injured OT Rex Tucker (calf). Saipaia started seven games for the Rams last season at right tackle: five regular-season games and two playoff contests. Although his body type is more suited to guard, Saipaia is a tough guy who did a decent job at the position last season.

    Didn't Saipaia do good last year?

    Not really. He had to be helped. He was moved inside to guard before the Right Tackle plan fell apart. I think he's better than Tucker.. but, the Rams wouldn't have made the Right Tackle their hightest priortiy in the off-season if Saipaia was the answer. They'd have been more than happy to use the number 1 on a DB or a Linebacker.

    And Martz's latest quote: The OFF Right Tackle has been his nightmare position for 3 years.

    Sink or swim. Put Barron in and see what he does! He's being paid big money not to sit on the particle board. Get him in there now!!!!!!!

    The Rams did sign Kyle Turley, then a top-5 right tackle in the league, but it turned out predictably ugly. Then they spent a first-rounder on a lineman for the first time since Pace entered the league. Yet the merry-go-round continues circling... this week it's Blaine whoever. Did Ryan Tucker or Fred Miller have something against this team to put a hex on the RT spot?
