    What do Toyoka Jackson, Mike Furrey, Jamie Martin and Arlen Harris have in common?

    Martz's "pets." His "loyalists." Jackson, Furrey, Martin and Harris. All gone. Good thing? Bad thing?

    Does every coach have players that are on the team as much for their attitude, influence, comfort level and hard work as they are for their talent?

    Seems like these players have been part of a house cleaning of the old regime (and, notably, Martz has already signed Harris and Furrey in Detroit).

    Is this house cleaning good or bad?

    Well, let's put it this way, they didn't do anything extraordinary (besides Furrey) to keep Martz here. They didn't have an excellent performance when he was away, specially Tyoka for the FO and us to say, Martz is a true leader and the players stand up for him. I really feel bad for Furrey, I really like that guy and Tyoka might have a chance to have a brakethru season under haslett.

    Yeah, Furrey is a great athlete. I think he has potential to be a good reeiver. He was just overshadowed by all the talent we have now.

    I wish T. Jackson would have been resigned for cheap. He is a pretty good pass rusher and could be missed.

    They are all second tier players.... Is it a good thing they are no longer with the Rams? I guess that depends who we replace them with...

    Tyoka was a leader, but his age and production mean that we probably won't see significant effects on the field. Replacing Jamie Martin with Gus Frerotte in my mind is clearly an upgrade, Tony Fisher for Arlen Harris is hard to say really, and Furrey I'll miss for his effort but not as much for his talent.

    I've got no problem getting rid of guys if they were only here because Mike Martz was the coach.

    All Mediocre players. We need less mediocrity on this team. Especially on defense.

    Good Riddens.


    I'm happy to see Furry and Harris reconnect with Martz....but he can have them.

    I think those players had more to do with fitting a role under the salary cap than necessarily being Mike Martz favorites.

    Yes there is.....Me. I love any coach that takes the Rams to the playoffs 4 out of 6 years. That being said, Martz is gone and you won't hear me squealing about what a raw deal he got. Move on to the future and Linehan.

    Re: What do Toyoka Jackson, Mike Furrey, Jamie Martin and Arlen Harris have in common?

    To Funny "AR" I do like T. Jackson , Furrey But they have not performed as well as I think most of us would have liked ? A. Harris can go anytime , I however feel that under our new guy they could if played at the right times and places could do well... Ive always liked jacksons heart he never gave up i like that about him... I do feel we could do better by up grading if we can...
    HEY I'M GLAD TO BE BACK I HAVE BEEN VERY SICK HERE LATELY , MISS YOU ALL VERY MUCH FEELING A LITTLE BETTER NOW...
