    Hedgecock rips into Linehan

    During an interview with Bernie on 1380, Hedgcock said "Linehan was a boring as Sh** during team meetings" and "he was so boring before games players were falling asleep".

    He also said "If you're going to cut me, at least cut me for a guy that's going to dress on game days."

    Re: Hedgecock rips into Linehan

    Wonder if he meant to say "as boring as watching paint dry"

    Don't get me wrong. There is nothing exciting about Sh** but it is typically equated with stinks, rather than boredom.

    I heard about this, it sounds like a riot. I heard he specifically said the reason Linehan cut him was to bring in somebody who played for him in college (Owens) who of course sucked and that none of the players on the team respected Linehan. What a horrible mistake letting this guy go, the Giants saw what they had and quickly locked him up to a 5 year/5 million dollar deal.

    Did you hear Joe Buck say "What were the Rams thinking letting this guy go?" during one of the Giants playoff games? Joe Buck rubbing in the pain is just like twisting a knife in an already mortal wound.

    Every time I hear stories like this it makes me feel that the Rams are just rotting from the inside out. I've said this before, but getting better players will not turn this team around. Getting better personel is the way to go.

    I never understood letting Hedgecock go. However several coaches make a bonehead move like this that comes back to bite them.

    I don't blame him for being mad, I didn't really see a reason for cutting him.

    He was a better FB blocker in the running game then what we had IMO. I agree he's not much when it comes to catching or passing. IMO Leonard is to undersized to be a lead FB. He also had to have surgery after the season. I still think Leonard has potential as a RB.

    How about being the lead blocker for one of the best running teams in the league? He was that to us last year, even with Linehan trying his best to bury him under Smith.

    I support Hedgecock. There are many words I want to call Linehan but wouldnt be appropriate to use on these boards.

    Exactly. I've heard that from the announcer of more than one Giants game.

    Linehan is enthralled with certain players and acts like Blocking is something that is handled by someone else. He just doesn't seem to value blocking and our Offense reflects that philosophy, IMO.

    Re: Hedgecock rips into Linehan

    Ex-Ram tells why he's in Super Bowl and Rams aren't
    By Bernie Miklasz
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Saturday, Jan. 26 2008

    The Rams cut fullback Madison Hedgecock after their first regular-season game
    of 2007. Two days later, the New York Giants claimed Hedgecock on waivers and
    plugged the 265-pound lead blocker into their lineup to put additional muscle
    in their rushing attack.

    The Giants were fourth in the NFL in rushing, and after three tough playoff
    road wins, they'll face New England in the Super Bowl. The Giants were so
    impressed with Hedgecock's work, they gave him a five-year contract extension
    worth $5.5 million.

    Meanwhile, frustrated Rams fans might wonder why coach Scott Linehan released
    Hedgecock to make room for Richard Owens, an ineffective H-back.

    "Because the head coach brought in a player that he'd had in college, and
    Minnesota," Hedgecock said Friday on KSLG (1380 AM). "He got rid of me because
    I wasn't brought in by him. And anything they say doesn't really matter,
    because that's the truth."

    True, Owens is a FOSL. (Friend Of Scott Linehan). He had Linehan as offensive
    coordinator in college (Louisville) and in the NFL (Minnesota).

    "They could have at least brought in somebody that was good to replace me,"
    Hedgecock said. "They brought in a guy that didn't dress (for games). And he
    was the coach's buddy. I don't need that stuff. I don't want to play for a
    buddy. I want to play for somebody that wants to win."

    To Hedgecock, that would be Giants coach Tom Coughlin, whom he calls "a fiery
    speaker."

    And Linehan?

    "He's pretty boring in my book," Hedgecock said. "I think his players would
    fall asleep before a game. I can't even be nice about it any more."

    Hedgecock remains upset by something Rams teammates told him after his release:
    Rams coaches disliked his attitude.

    "I might be too slow, or not too fast, or too pretty, or whatever you want to
    call me, but my attitude has never been a problem," he said. "I've never had a
    bad attitude. To say that is a joke.

    "(In 2006) I had a high ankle sprain and a broken thumb and I played the whole
    year. I don't think I was as highly as effective as I could have been, but I
    had to play through a lot of pain. That was a rough year for me as far as
    staying healthy, but I never missed a beat. And then they repay you for playing
    hard and hurt by cutting you."

    Well, Hedgecock got his revenge in the form of respect, a new contract and a
    chance to play in the Super Bowl.

    "I don't know what the Rams were thinking," Giants running back Brandon Jacobs
    said. "But I'm glad they kicked him out of the house and onto the streets and
    threw his clothes out. One man's trash is another man's treasure, and St.
    Louis' trash has most definitely been our treasure."

    Re: Hedgecock rips into Linehan

    In the end, cutting Hedgecock was a mistake not because Madison was some amazing player but rather because, as it turned out, the guy we signed to replace him never truly did. I thought Owens was promising in that he was a versatile guy who brought more to the table as a receiver and had experience in the offense, but that never translated here we were left trying to make something work with less than ideal parts.

    But...

    Hedgecock remains upset by something Rams teammates told him after his release: Rams coaches disliked his attitude.
    Imagine that. You found success and a starting role on another team, agreed to a new five-year $6 million deal, and your team is now getting ready to play in a Super Bowl against the undefeated New England Patriots. And you're spending your time taking shots at your former coach? Remember, this is the same guy that said of the Rams earlier in the year, "Yeah, 0-6, I'm happy. Every day they lose, I laugh." Hmm, sounds to me like concerns about your attitude might have some validity to them.
