    The Untouchables

    Here is my list of players who should and must be back next year. No, ifs, ands or buts.

    Marc Bulger
    Torry Holt
    Orlando Pace
    Isaac Bruce
    Kevin Curtis
    Sean McDonald
    Steven Jackson
    Jimmy Kennedy
    Ryan Pickett
    Tony Hargrove
    Pisa Tinoisamoa
    Jeff Wilkins

    That's the list. Everyone else, in the right circumstance, could be replaced.

    I would add Tyoka Jackson. He appears to be elder statesman among the players. But then again, if Tyoka left, I'm sure another would rise to his position. But I'd still call Tyoka untouchable.

    I might add Little as well, if he can stay out of jail.

    I agree. If Little resolves his legal troubles, he's on this list as well.

    I think Faulk still deserves the Untouchable tag. Its just a matter of the cap hit.

    Orlando Pace is only untouchable if he gets real with his cap deal. If not, his ass is gone

    I like Wilkins but I don't know that the dropoff to a replacement would be so great that it woutweighs paying him his high salary. If the Rams are going to be strapped for cash again, it might be conceivable to replace Wilkins.

    Anyone know how much he makes? Especially relative to other kickers. I thought he was one of the higher paid kickers. His short kickoffs and not automatic field goal kicking doesn't warrant an oversized contract in my opinion. I just don't remember for sure what his cap number is.

    I agree. Faulk needs to stay. Pace's charade has grown old and hurts us in the first few weeks of the season.

    Who knows, maybe Jeff does this short kick-offs with purpose. Can you imagine what would happen that he let opposite returners to get full speed before our guys appear on horizont. He can not be replaced. Who would tackle than on special team?

    Amen to that, Faulk is still one of the best and smartest Football players around, not just RB but football player. And I am sick of the Pace thing every year, what I saw from him this year, not just at the beginning but the whole year, I say if he creates any more noise this off-season just get him out, maybe sign and trade or something. It kind of reminds me of another former Ram great who kept asking for more money year after year until the Rams got sick of it and said good-bye, Eric Dickerson.
