    That would be a nice fit for us. I like it, go get it done.

    May well be worth a look as Bulger's back up. He's always done a pretty good job when paired with Linehan. Why not?

    I agree, I would feel better with him as our backup than I do with Fitz and Smoker.

    Someone brought up the name Brooks, also an upgrade at back up QB.

    I'll pass on Brooks. Haslett can have his defensive boys, but Linehan will hand pick his QB's, and Frerotte would be a nice fit, being a pocket passer with knowledge of Linehans system. Could even help bring Bulger up to speed.

    I would be 100% supportive of gus as the backup. i support linehan picking his offensive guys the same way i support haslett on the defensive guys. I think sbramsfan is correct on that point.

    Re: Rams | Team may have some interest in Frerotte

    ehhh, I didn't really wanna use our last amounts of money on a backup QB, I mean don't get me wrong he'd be a great backup. It's just that I really think we should get an offensive lineman first, and another vet on D, then worry about this and the draft...

    Re: Rams | Team may have some interest in Frerotte

    I dont think it will be all that expensive to get him. I dont think we have to shoot our remaining wad of cap dollars. Also, bulger hasnt exactly been brett farve in the durability department. A backup is critical for us and this guy is competent and knows the system. It is the kind of insurance policy worth buying in my view.

    I am all for picking up a solid veteran in Gus Frerotte.

    Re: Rams | Team may have some interest in Frerotte

    For the right price, why not? I remember a couple of years ago he started for the Vikings because Culpepper was injured (played a heck of a game against the niners if memory serves me correctly). When Culpepper began to struggle in later games, Viking fans began to cheer for gus to come in and replace Culpepper. Also, the game that we killed the Vikings 48-17, Joe Buck mentioned that if Culpepper were to be pulled and gus were to come in and play well, there would be a similar controversy in Minnesota that was in St. Louis at that time.

    FYI folks...

    Alex Marvez is a local hack and he's just speculating. Not saying it won't happen, but this is not a news story, its just a reporter making a logical statement in the hope that it will happen so he can say he reported it first.

    Kind of reminds me of a Vinny Testaverde type of QB.
