    Hedgecock has something to say:

    A Clip from the New York Post

    Signed after the first game of the season, former Ram Madison Hedgecock appears to have found a home as the Giants fullback.

    "I got an opportunity here and I've got to make the best of it, because I think they did me a wrong in St. Louis, I didn't deserve none of that," he said.

    Hedgecock spent the past two years in St. Louis, but was cut by first-year Rams coach Scott Linehan after the season opener.

    "Why would you get rid of a key person in your offense after your first game?" Hedgecock asked. "I made the team, I played the first game. The head coach had a guy he wanted to bring in, one of his old players."

    Reminded that the Rams are 0-6, Hedgecock added: "Yeah, 0-6, I'm happy. Every day they lose, I laugh. And every day we win, I laugh."

    Every time Madison gets stuffed behind the line by a LB he's supposed to block, I laugh.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    So what you are saying is that this has no direct connections to the Rams. That a former player talks about the current state of the team and his position on a direct connection has no reflection on anything that we Ram may want to know....hhhhhmmmmmm....interesting.

    So Hedgecock doesn't have any friends on the RAMS? It's one thing to be upset with the Headcoach and maybe the organization but what about the guys he went to work with? 0-6 makes him happy and he laughs when they lose? Man I wish we played the Giants this season! He just burned 1 bridge. There's no crying in football!

    Wow, talk about sour grapes. Obviously he was cut because of bad grammar.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    I don't think he literally meant that he laughs every time he loses. I think what he was trying to do was vent his frustration about being cut after he already made the team. If I was in his place I would be pretty upset if I made the team only to be cut after the first game and be replaced by a player who used to play for the head coach.

    He has alot of reasons to be mad about being cut. He works hard only to get his legs chopped out from underneath him, and be replaced? Not a good way for the head coach to earn the respect of the players.

    Yes, and I see it all over the NFL.

    Actually I do think he was cut in part because Linehan saw someone else he liked more in the free agent pool (Richard Owens); this isn't abnormal in the NFL for coaches to prefer their players.

    Let's remember that Linehan and company also brought in Paul Smith last season to compete with Hedgecock, whom Smith eventually surpassed as the starter. It should be noted Smith had previously been with the Lions, where offensive coordinator Greg Olson had spent time.

    So obviously Linehan wanted to upgrade the position of fullback because there was something about Hedgecock he wasn't sold on. Maybe he wanted someone who could do more with the ball in their hand or someone who is capable of being moved around more as an H-back, which I think Owens is.

    I think it's interesting though that Linehan didn't go out and sign Owens the day after he was cut (9/1). The Rams actually waited ten days and played a game between the time Owens was cut and the time he was signed with the Rams. That kind of makes me wonder if Linehan wanted to get a good look at Hedgecock against Carolina and then make his decision after that. The timeline seems to fit; the Rams signed Owens a day after the Panthers loss.

    It would be interesting to go back and rewatch that game to see how Hedge looked.

    I am at a big loss this year with no nfl ticket. I can't watch the games, I can't record the games, I can't look back at games that have gone by. I am lost this year, so take my comments for what they are, someone far away with no real view of the games.

    It could be interesting to go back and watch Hedgecocks performance that game.

    I think I hear a Country-Western song comin' on here somewhere. Or maybe we can have Jeff Foxworthy do a Red Neck video with "Mad dog" Madison at home at his trailer in Dump Water, NC as he whittles on his front porch and spits tobacky juice.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    Honestly, I can understand why he's mad. Of course I don't like to hear that he laughs when we lose, but he lost his starting fullback position to a guy who couldn't even hold down a backup tight end spot on another team.
