    Tanus' Random Ramblings...

    1. Leonard Little is good, very very good. He might be the best player on our team. The tackle he had on third down when he chased Griese down from behind was marvelous.

    2. It's good to see Arch finally make a big play this season. Hopefully, his back injury is behind him and we can continue to see play like this from him for the rest of the season.

    3. The refs need to learn the laws of physics and realize its impossible for a guy to turn the way the Bucs defender turned if he got hit in the back.

    4. Don't send Wilkins out to kick a 56 yard field goal when he has a dinged up plant foot. Heave it up into the end zone as you have better odds.

    5. Marc Bulger has learned to throw the deep ball.

    6. Marc Bulger needs to hold onto the ball better when getting sacked. I can handle 1 INT per game.

    7. Grant Williams could cost us a game. Not truly his fault as he is slated for a backup tackle role.

    8. This Rams D really does have a love/hate relationship with me. I'm not a huge fan of this bend but don't break crap, but it has worked for the last 3 games so I can't complain too much.

    9. Larry Marmie actually had some great blitzes. The two he called before the Butler pick in the end zone were A+ in my book. Both should have been sacks but Coady just whiffed.

    10. I love Steven Jackson. This is the best first round pick by the Rams since Holt.

    11. I love Torry Holy. 2 TD's against the Bucs D is awesome.

    12. It's good to see Hargrove in the mix making some things happen. Hopefully he continues to develop and is the starter next year at DE.

    13. Trev Faulk is really missed on ST's.

    14. Shaun McDonald makes me go Hakim who? He is turning out to be a great 4th round pick.

    15. Kevin Curtis is starting to show why we picked a WR in the third round last year. He is starting to show that he was a great 3rd round pick.

    16. Marshall has lost a step unfortunately. That being said, I still love the 1-2 punch that he and Jackson provide.

    17. It is really tough to try and watch the Rams game, the Yankees/Sox game, and cook dinner at the same time.

    18. I told you it was random as I have no idea where I am going with any of this.

    I agree with most of that. Not sure the Bulger's fumble was his fault. He had no time and the ball was punched out as he was going down. Grant Williams takes the blame for that one.

    Re: Tanus' Random Ramblings...

    Thats definitely a valid opinion. Generally though, in my opinion, if the QB doesn't get blindsided then it is his fault if he fumbles. Obviously, if he gets hit from behind and the ball comes out, its the LT's fault and this is why the LT is paid more than the RT usually. To me, it looked like Bulger had both hands on the ball when he was getting sacked and it came out on his way down, not right when he got hit. To me, that signals the fumble as Bulger's fault. Just my opinion though.

    Re: Tanus' Random Ramblings...

    Here's some random thoughts.

    1. I want to smash John Gruden over the head with an ant farm so they all get in his hair, and when he walks out of his house, all the little kids in the neighborhood make fun of him and call him Johnny Johnny with the Anty Anty Scalpy Scalpy.

    2. Somebody needs to hit Grant Williams in the face with a canoe.

    Note to networks: please stop showing close-ups of Gruden's facial contortions during the game. Thank you.

    They tried, but it went right around him.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm convinced that said facial contortions are totally
    premeditated for the cameras.

    Either that, or he had some bad clams for dinner.

    In reality you could probably blame both Williams and Bulger for the fumble. In the replay it looked like Bulger knocked the football out of his own hand with his other hand as he was starting to cover up. Of course if Williams would have done a better job, the DE wouldn't have been grabbing at Bulger's arm as he was trying to cover the ball up.

    5. Marc Bulger has learned to throw the deep ball.

    Agreed...and this is a big deal for this team. Without at least the threat of the long ball, our offense is not what it is designed to be. If the deep ball returns consistently to our offense, McDonald and Curtis will really open the eyes of our opponents.
