    Yo, Linehan: Cut Claude Terrell or Cut Yourself

    By Bernie Miklasz
    10/23/2007 2:05 pm


    If the Rams have any interest in maintaining any shred of credibility and dignity and professionalism, theyíll order Claude Terrell to clear out of Rams Park as soon as possible.

    Terrell, the Ramsí sorry, no-account guard, was arrested early Tuesday morning by Webster, Texas, police and charged with assualting his wife.

    This is Terrellís second arrest. Heís on probation from a 2006 charge of assault on a family member.

    As a member of the Rams organization, Terrell has been late for meetings. Heís been out of shape. Heís defied coaches. He refused to participate in the teamís offseason training program. Last week he insulted head coach Scott Linehan during a practice. Heís a bad influence on teammate Alex Barron. Around Rams Park, Terrell is considered uncoachable.

    And yet Ö. this clown is still receiving a paycheck from the Rams?

    Why? Because of injuries on the O-line?

    Itís incomprehensible.

    Hereís a tip for Linehan and Rams managementÖ if youíre so worried about injuries, please stop and consider the larger issue here: the injury that Terrell is causing to the reputation and the image of this franchise. And thatís far worse than a sprained ankle.

    If the teamís management isnít willing to cut Terrell, ASAP, then the folks running the franchise are even more out of touch with reality than we feared.

    If Linehan is willing to continue coddling and carrying a trouble-making, coach-killing, no-talent bully who apparently canít restrain himself from getting physically violent with family members, then Linehan needs to go, and go right now.

    If Linehan canít stand up to this guy in the only way that matters ó by firing Terrell immediately ó then Linehan ought to just clear out of his office and move on, because his authority over this squad will be null and void and useless.

    Linehan has already lost this team, at least the offense.

    Jim Haslettís defense isnít the best, but at least his guys show up and play hard and have pride in their work. Unlike Linehanís offense, members of Haslettís defense get upset when they lose, when they fail to play well. They care.

    On the offensive side, the players donít play for Linehan. The symbol is the highly-paid QB, who goes through the motions now, simply rolls his eyes at Linehan on the sideline when the coach makes a recommendation. That one scene on the sideline at Seattle was all you needed to know about Marc Bulger and this coach and the lack of respect the offense has for Linehan.

    Claude Terrell has become the face of this franchise, and accordingly, the Rams have never been more embarrassing than they are now.

    So feckless, they canít win a football game.

    Is there any wonder why? Just look at the HC.

    To this point, Linehan wonít even man up to Claude Terrell.

    How can we expect the Rams to have strength of mind and character to win games during times of adversity and turmoil when the head coach wonít even take on Terrell?

    If the coach canít put a problem player in his place ó out on the curb ó then the coach is woefully incapable of leading an entire team.

    me: Man Bernie's really pushing to cut Terrell - that means he should be gone today.. or maybe during the bye.. jeez..

    Sorry - Bernie's a p.o.s.

    Kick a guy when he's down, jump from one eye roll to "Marc has no respect for Linehan", etc, etc.

    By the way, slim, why didn't you write the column last week after Terrell mouthed off?

    Right on, Vegas.

    'Looks like BM is rather late on his article, trying to get it in before the press closes for the day. ClanRam is way ahead of that reporter!

    BTW, what is P.O.S.? I'm still learning English.

    Bernie probably should have waited about 3-4 hours on this one.

    That's funny, Nick, because the sycophants at the Pressbox are now giving Bernie (& his column) credit for getting Terrell cut. It's rather humorous.

    Yeah, that article had a shorter shelf life than a Dunkin Donut glazed cruller.
