    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    I understand him. He went from (what is now) a 0-7 team to a 5-2 team. He's not the typical H-back that Linehan has always utilized, so he was obviously in a square peg and round hole situation here. He's moving forward in a scheme that fits his skills, so I'm sure he's happy. That's just the business, folks.

    True, but I think it's still sour grapes also.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    These guys take it personally, which is understandable. Does anyone remember Furry's antics last year and he was a real team player?

    Thank the good lord we don't play the giants this year. Seriously. You saw what Ernest Graham did to us. What do you think Brandon Jacobs will do? I don't want the first 200 yard rushing performance this season to be against us.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    Can we please deal in reality for a minute. Has anyone on the board ever been fired from a job? When you got fired, did you walk out the door and hope that the company did great after you left? Especially considering this wasnt a mass layoff for economic downturn purposes. Hedgehung is a human being and i dont think he is reacting differently than almost anyone else would only he is being brutally honest about it.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    RamBo, i dont follow your argument at all. We havent given up a single 100 yard rushing game to anyone this year. I dont know why you are talking about a 200 yard game. Our run defense has been excellent this year.

    Our offense is potentially the worst in the history of the team, but the defense, especially the run defense, has played well and you can thank the drafting of carriker and ryan for that.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    Hey i agree with Hedge, although i never thought he was at all useful. I laugh everytime the Rams lose because of stupid personell changes Linehan has amde too. He has taken a team that was in a rough spot and turned it into the worst team in NFL history. This team is horrible, from the Kicker to the HC... I can't wait for 2012. I figure it takes us at least that long to repair the amount of Damage Martz, and now Linehan have caused this team.

    I don't know GC, it would be one thing for him to say he doesn't think he was treated fairly or that he thinks the Rams made a mistake by getting rid of him, but taking pleasure in his former teams misery and misfortune is a bit classless and looks like sour grapes to me. He's in a better situation now and could have easily taken the high road here.

    Thanks to his comments I laugh everytime he blows a block or drops a perfect pass when he's wide open in the flat.

    Agreed, that was my point also. I have no problem with Hedge saying he feels he wasn't treated fairly, that's not sour grapes. The taking pleasure in us losing where I'm sure he must have had some friends on the team is sour grapes.

    Re: Hedgecock has something to say:

    The Rams give up 126.9 rushing yards per game. You can't use the "no 100 yard rusher" excuse anymore because teams these days utilize a 2 RB attack. We haven't given up a 100 yard rusher, but we give up 100+ rushing yards a game.

    The Panthers and Cowboys used two backs against us, but the *****, Seahawks, Ravens, and Cardinals used one back almost exclusively.

    As Fleece pointed out, we've seen both feature back sets and 2-back sets. The 2-back sets (Carolina, Tampa, Dallas) handled us....180 yards/game, 5.23 ypc. However, against feature backs (SF, Arizona, Baltimore, Seattle), including each of the last 3 weeks, the run D has been downright dominant.....92 yards/game, 3.01 ypc.

    The question is: Has the run D improved that much over the past 3 weeks, or is there just that much difference between the committee sets and the feature back sets?

    The question is not: Is the Rams run D much improved?

    That one has already been answered.

    Which by the way he did last Sunday against the Whiners. The ball hit him in a bad spot, right in the hands. STIFF!
