    Unhappy Who Now????

    With things cooling down with Carter and Az signing with the Lions what do the Rams do for that WR spot(s)?

    The major downfall I saw with CC...

    was that we didn't really need another veteran leader. We already have Isaac on the field and Henry Ellard off. Draft some flash, let Yo and others fight with him for the spot. Best man wins...
    This space for rent...

    I think we should go after Green if he's cheap. He's still got some speed and catching ability. Then let Yo, et. al. sort out the #4 spot (although i don't have a lot of confidence in st. paul). I would draft a receiver next year.

    We don't need leadership or flash, we have both. Get a guy that can produce consistently (not that holt or isaac aren't)

    I like Willie Green, I think he would be an excellent addition. I just don't know if we can afford him.

    We could afford Jerome Pathon I bet, and he returns punts.


    Hmmmmmmm.....Pathon. I could see him in a Rams uni.

    Losing Az is not that big of a deal in my opinion. His role in the offense was almost non-existent this year except for the occasional gadget play. This year he had more fumbles (4) than touchdowns (3). He did average 9.6 yards a catch, but he only caught 39 passes. Hakim had 374 receiving yards. Hakim played in all 16 games for the Rams.

    In an injury plagued season, Jerome Pathon played 4 games and averaged 13.8 yards a catch, bringing in 24 receptions. He also caught 2 touchdown passes. Pathon had 330 total receiving yards.

    There are plenty of free agents on the market that fit the Rams scheme as a 3rd WR. Hakim got starter money on his 99 season. I wish him well, but I don't think he is worth the money.

    I Think We Should Resign Ricky Proehl.
    And Then Pick Up Josh Reed In The Draft.

    We Can Afford To Loose 1 Veteran Wide Receiver - But Not Two.

    Resign Ricky Proehl And Then See Who Left Before The Draft.

    We All Know, How Picky Mike Martz Can Be, When It Comes To Wide Receivers.

    Josh Reed probably won't be available that late. But, i do agree that we should draft a WR (or even a DB). I'd like to see them keep Proehl, but cheaply.

    Talking Go Yo...

    I'm all for Yo Murphy taking the #3 spot, but if we can draft a flashy receiver in the first or second round, let 'em fight it out. I just hope we resign Ricky Proehl.

    Jerome Pathon probably won't join the Rams, as I've heard rumors about him going to the Chiefs.

    I'm glad the Rams let Carter go, not that he would've been a cancer like many thought. He was going to be late for the Wednesday meeting, so BAM he had his chance, he's gone, and we're over it. I don't want the team to sign a free agent receiver, I want them to replace Hakim from within the team. We drafted Bruce, we drafted Holt, and we drafted Hakim. Look for this draft to produce yet another stud.

    :shield:

    I'd love to see #87 back in the huddle in 2002. I herd Jaquez Green will be in on the 8th for a visit. Remeber the name Avion Cason. He was the kick returner at the beginning of the season and had some trouble. He was put on the practice squad after that. He's Az's size, but faster. A RB coming out of school and Martz shifted him to WR. I think he might contribute, if he wasn't or doesn't get cut.

    I'm with Karl-Baker, i'm for resigning Ricky Proehl. If Ricky wants to win another SuperBowl, he'll do the right thing and sign with us. GO RAMS BABY YEAH!!

    I was thinking along same lines as Karl-Baker as well. I'd like to keep Proehl and draft for the future.

    The way I see it the Rams need to re-sign Ricky.

    I think, though, that drafting a Josh Reed or Javon Walker in the first round would be a mistake. I know Martz would love to add another toy to his offense, but he can do that in later rounds while the Rams focus on more pressing needs (LBs, OTs) earlier in the draft.

    A couple of names at wide receiver:

    Antwan Randle-El and Khalil Hill. Both have good quickness. Hill has better speed, but Randle-El gives Martz the bonus of being a quarterback in college (Martz could have a field day with that). Either would be picked up in the third round or later.

    Go after Freeman if the Pack let him go.
