    Timmerman disputes costly penalty

    By Jim Thomas
    Tuesday, Dec. 06 2005

    One of the key plays in the Rams' 24-9 loss to Washington was a holding call
    against offensive guard Adam Timmerman. It negated what would have been a
    44-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Torry Holt late in the third quarter, on
    a play that carried to the Washington 16. At the time, the Rams trailed only

    As might be expected, Timmerman didn't like the call.

    "To me, the guy was off-balance and falling down, and I just pushed the guy
    down," said Timmerman, a two-time Pro Bowler. "I really don't think there was
    any holding involved, especially to change the drive on a long completion - and
    end a drive eventually."

    The penalty pushed the Rams back to their 30, and they eventually had to punt.
    Offensive linemen will be the first to say that holding could be called on
    almost every play somewhere on the line. And sometimes officials call it, and
    sometimes they don't.

    "You've got to kind of roll with some of that," Timmerman said. "Some of that,
    they call and you wonder how in the world they could call it. But they did
    (Sunday). That's my responsibility to make sure they can't even have a hint of
    being able to make a mistake like that."

    Archuleta update

    Safety Adam Archuleta put up the bold front Friday, telling reporters he felt
    all right after missing the Houston game with a concussion. But he wasn't all

    "I've been through this before," Archuleta said. "I didn't feel right (last)
    week. There were some instances in practice where I just was confused. I wasn't

    "I could've talked myself into playing. But I think at the end of the day ...
    another incident would not have been good. I wasn't 100 percent confident. I
    want to step on the field and say, 'All right. Let's go. Let's do this.'"

    Loyd signs

    The Rams filled Dexter Coakley's roster spot by signing another linebacker,
    Jeremy Loyd. Loyd, 6-2, 235 pounds, spent most of the 2003 and 2004 seasons
    with the Rams before being cut near the end of this preseason, on Aug. 30. He
    has been out of the NFL since then, although he had a tryout with Denver on
    Oct. 4.

    In 2003, Loyd finished fourth on the squad with 18 special-teams tackles even
    though he played in only 10 games. He missed the entire 2004 season because of
    a shoulder injury. Loyd, 25, was beaten out by Drew Wahlroos for the sixth
    linebacker spot on the roster this preseason.

    McCollum's contract

    The two-year contract extension signed by center Andy McCollum over
    Thanksgiving weekend is worth $2.5 million. The deal includes a $500,000
    signing bonus, plus base salaries of $1 million in 2006 and $1 million in 2007.
