    Have you ever played defense FTG?

    Thanks for posting this. I have only played a little flag football and I think the only decisions we made on defense was who was going in for a blitz and the rest of us were just playing man on man. There are so many things about football that I don't understand and I probably sound like an idiot half the time and I don't even know it.

    Hopefully our expert is still around and he can give us some explanations from the defensive perspective regarding pass rushing.
    I played a linebacker in Middle School. High school I played Quarterback.

        In traditional terms, it would be based off the metropolitan size of a team's fanbase. That is to say, large market teams would be the Giants, Jets, Bears, Cowboys, Redskins, Whiners/Raiders, Eagles, Lions, Pats, etc.... While the small market teams would be the Bengals, Packers, Rams, Chiefs, Jags, Bills, Titans, Saints, Panthers, Colts, etc.

        The irony of the past 13 years is that the nation's 2nd largest market (LA) does not have an NFL team.

          You also have to take into account TV markets. how much coverage does a team get, how many people are watching on TV. it is really important in determining who gets a team and where the team is. it is directly related to the population of the metropolitan area, but it doesn't always work. for instance, San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the USA, they have been trying to get a francise for many years, but they have a relatively small TV market compared to thier size as a metropolitan area. they tried to get the Vikings and the Saints but have been unsucessful as of yet.

          the beauty of the NFL is how they handle thier business and thier profit sharing technices to keep a balance in the league and maintain competitiveness between large and small market teams. take MLB for example where large market team with very wealthy owners who can go over the cap and pay the penalties, can always have good teams and pay for the best player (yankees, redsox, etc.), while small market teams have to struggle and have a good season here and there (royals, brewers, etc.). while there are repeat team in the NFL that are good for many years, it is more a result of the coaches, and schemes. take the Patriots for example, i wouldn't consider many of thier players to be a whole lot better than players on other teams, and they operate on the same budget as other teams, yet they have great coaching, and make use of their resources a well as they can. man the NFL is awesome!

            And that 2nd largest market had trouble selling out stadiumswhilst the smallest market (Packers) have a 35 year waiting list for season tickets and havent had an empty seat for 40 years.

            Q) Where'd the tuck rule come from. Is there a precedent for them introducing it, like they introduce the horse collar this year because TO broke his ankle?

              Here's the tuck rule...
              NFL Rule 3, Section 21, Article 2, Note 2: "When a Team A player is holding the ball to pass it forward, any intentional forward movement of his hand starts a forward pass, even if the player loses possession of the ball as he is attempting to tuck it back toward his body. Also, if the player has tucked the ball into his body and then loses possession, it is a fumble."
              The rule was actually codified in 1999, but it was the 2002 playoff game between the Pats and Raiders that everyone remembers. Brady appeared to fumble the ball when hit by Woodson. The "fumble" was recovered by Greg Biekert, which would have sealed the deal for the Raiders and sent them to the AFC championship vs. the Steelers. However, applying the "tuck rule", the call was reversed. The Pats kicked a FG, and beat the Raiders in overtime.

              Controversial to say the least.

                Interesting to note that the Rams benefited from that rule earlier in the same season. A fumble by Kurt Warner was reversed due to the tuck rule. I can't remember what game it was, but just so everyone knows, this rule was in fact in existence before the Raiders-Pats game.

                      Thought I'd revive this thread by linking to a pretty detailed Pro Football Focus article that explains many of the defensive line techniques you'll see on Sundays in the NFL. Rather informative!

                        OK CIAFT! I've got for you.

                        We all hear several NFL terminologies...Cover 2, 46 defense, west coast offense, run and shoot, oc, dc, gaps etc etc etc......

                        What's this "scheme" we hear and read about? What exactly is SCHEME?

                        Thanks!

                            I love being a member of ClanRam! I check this board everyday since I joined not too long ago, and I love the fact that I can get all the Rams latest, without having to do extensive searches through the net.
                            My question as simple; Are we in any way affilated with the Rams? And if not How come?

                            Hello moderator friends at Clanram!

                            --Or may I say, "Hola amigos moderadores de Clanram"?...

                            Found Clanram's newest member, Miguel, from Mexico City and was wondering what your discretion would be regarding the possibility of posted messages in other-than-English languages, e.g., Spanish, German, etc.

                            As you know, for the past few years the NFL has been having an organized, yearly exhibition game in Mexico City which usually features the Dallas Cowboys and ??? (I believe this year it'll be the Pittsburgh Steelers --can't recall if the Rams have played there). These games have attracted huge crowds an have been nationally televised here in the U.S.

                            With the NFL - Europe semi-expanssion teams gaining more popularity, do you expect possible messages in Spanish or German, perhaps from potential Clanram fans whose primary NFL team is the St. Louis Rams?

                            Again, just curious. I feel fortunate to be bilingual [Eng.><Spanish] as I'm sure more and more Clanram fans will be in the near future. íVivan los Carneros! [Hooray fo the Rams!].


                            You might eventually have a 'bilingual or even trilingual Clanram site', 'ey? Please let me know what you think. Everyone's opinion is important, of course, especially that of my senior moderators RamDez, DodRam and colleagues.

                            Gracias.

                            Hey everyone, I am currently working on a Discourse Community Ethnography for my critical writing class. In a nutshell, a discourse community is any group of people that have a set of goal and use communication to reach those goals. The goal of the assignment is to study a discourse community and then write a short case study to that community. Naturally I selected the Clan for my study. All of my research is based on the work of linguists John Swales, Ann Johns, and Elizabeth Wardle. For part of my research I need the input of members of the community, so If you could, can you take the time to respond to the following questions? Feel free to add any information about ClanRam you would like to share. Thanks in advance!

                            1. What goals do you have as an individual in this community and for the community as a whole?

                            2. Can you describe the lexis (the way we speak, any specific terms, ect) that we use?

                            3. What mechanisms of communication do you use to contact other members?

                            4. Does the community utilize and posses one or more genres of writing? Which ones?

                            5. Does the community have a reasonable ratio of novices and experts contributing to the community?

                            6. What are the most memorable conflicts within the community? How were they solved?

                            7. What are your favorite memories as a member of the community?

                            8. Have you ever felt that your views or values have been in conflict with the community?

                            Time to burn some sage.

                            A dark cloud is looming over ClanRam. There's a negative energy around the board, and that's fine. The team is 0-3, on a 13-game losing streak, and injuries are starting to stack up. Nobody expects you to be happy, but the Rams are slowly improving.

                            Time to build some positive vibes here. The purpose of this thread is simple:

                            List one good thing about a Rams player. Or one good thing about the team as a whole, or a coach, or front office, if you so please.

                            One at a time, a few at a time, whatever, but keep it simple. Feel free to repeat the same player that someone else has used, but it'd be nice to have some variety.

                            If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it. I don't wanna hear it in this thread.

                            I'll start it off:

                            Jacob Bell has really bulked up this season and has improved his blocking.
