    Tinoisamoa Voted Rams' Ed Block Courage Award Winner

    Tuesday, January 23, 2007

    LB Pisa Tinoisamoa has been named the Ramsí winner of the Ed Block Courage Award.

    Tinoisamoa, who led the Rams in tackles in his first three seasons, was placed on the reserve/injured list on Dec. 14, 2006.

    The University of Hawaii product first dislocated his left elbow in Week 2 at San Francisco. After missing only two plays, Pisa returned to action after getting braced and taped to finish with four tackles (three solo). In Week 4 vs. Detroit, Tinoisamoa dislocated the same elbow again, finishing the game with six tackles (two solo) and his first sack of the season.

    During practice for the Ramsí Week 6 contest vs. Seattle, Pisa sustained a broken right hand. He was able to play in the game, notching six tackles (three solo) and his second sack of the season, but missed the next two games.

    In Week 13 vs. Arizona, Pisa dislocated his right shoulder, finishing the game with three tackles (two solo). After another three-tackle game vs. Chicago in Week 14, Tinoisamoa was placed on the reserve/injured list on Dec. 14. He has since undergone right shoulder surgery.

    The Ed Block Courage Award is named in honor of Ed Block, the longtime head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts who was a pioneer in his profession and a respected humanitarian.

    The Courage Award recipients embody everything that is positive about professional athletes as they serve as inspirations in their locker rooms and constructive role models in their communities. They are often players who have overcome devastating injuries or tragedies in their personal lives to return to the top level of competition that is the NFL. The Ed Block Courage Award has become one of the most esteemed honors bestowed upon a player in the NFL, primarily because his selection is based upon a vote of his peers.

    Man, that Pisa needs to have some better luck next year staying healthy. At least he's a tough guy, though.
    And you thought Mike Martz was "mad"!

    He tough as nails, but I am starting to lose faith in his ability. This year is was tough to judge but next year he either needs to make a difference or go.

    He signed a 5 year extension during the past season,so I don't think he will be going anytime soon.Hope he has an injury free '07,he deserves it and then he can show what a good player he is..:l
