    What was wrong with holt today?

    I love holt i really do but he really didnt look like himself today. I notice i know 2 plays that would have been TD's if he would have caught them. One he didnt even see for some odd reason and the other went through his hands.. Is he rusty from all that rest or what.. I hope he get better next week...I sure hope anyways.

    I would say he is more hurt then he is letting on. I suspect his knee is worse than reported.

    While the announcers were talking, they mentioned that the Rams, without Martz, were running the ball more, a little more rough and smash mouth. I agreed with this statement, and was happy that perhaps all that wimpy, skinny, fast Rams sh!^ was behind us. Then Marshall caught a pass, and Holt was there picking him up. All that Greatest show on turf garbage and speed and "names" and Holt's website came back to me, and I felt ill. Personally, you can put Holt and Marshall (Not Bruce, he was a L.A. Ram) on a boat to Fiji and tell them never to come back and I couldn't care less. That Era is Over. They got 1 SuperBowl win out of it, and that is really a shame. That greatest show on turf is/was an embarrasement to the Rams.

    Yeah those to missed catches would have been TD's and would have changed the game. I thought Bulger did ok for being out 3 weeks..but Holt and Bruce were just not there.... I dont know where they were..

    Holt looked like he just wasn't in this game, which completely goes against his nickname of course. I figure his knee was still bothering him a bit, and maybe a bit of rust factored in as well. When he missed that deep post, you just had to figure he wasn't all there.

    yeah but his knee wouldnt have anything to do with him when he missed that deep post.... It just look like he was lost....

    Perhaps. But if he's in pain with every step he takes or when he puts weight on it, that's going to take away from your concentration. I dunno.

    true..i never thought about that.. but still he was way off today and if he wasnt completely recovered then he should have sat down and let curtis take his place. and as for bruce. What was his excuse today?
    and another thing. we played better as a team without our major starters than we did today.

    Re: What was wrong with holt today?

    I'm sure a lot of it has to do with timing issues. When you don't play for 2-3 weeks, or longer in Bruce's case, it's hard to step back in and expect that timing to be there. Hopefully the problem doesn't linger.

    Re: What was wrong with holt today?

    I'm thinking it's a combination of knee problems and he's rusty because he missed two consecutive games followed by a BYE and these are the first two games that he hasn't played in his whole career.

    Re: What was wrong with holt today?

    to me, clearly its the knee. he is very very tentative, cant tell if he can lunge at all. the ball in the end zone was 6 inches out of his hands, an easy td for him, but having to reach out for it on the tender knee probably made him hesitate just a little bit and thats all it takes.

    I admire his guts so much for getting out on the field today, but clearly, he was not anywhere near the all pro level.

    If I had known that holt was going to be that hurt, i would have known our chances of winning this game were going to be very very slim indeed.

    Holt clearly had too much on his mind today. His heart and dedication to the team are both extremely admirable, but he needs to be able to play with a reasonable amount of confidence and concentration, or not play at all.

    The first play it looked like he was expecting the ball on his other side, and then he was asking for a flag on the play. It would have been 6 if he saw the ball.

    He certainly was not playing like normal. I'll bet the injury is more serious than we have been told. I can't believe he missed the one near the endzone. He probably should not have been out there today.

    Holt actually said that on the deep post he made his cut and turned to look for the ball higher on the air than it was, and didn't see it because it was lower. I do not remember him being someone to make excuses so I believe him.
