  • TSN Rams Report

    Jim Thomas

    DE Bryce Fisher likely will start, probably on the right side. Fisher is relentless and quick off the line, and he has some good pass-rush moves. How Fisher will hold up against the run is unknown. . . .

    Rookie C Larry Turner might not be ready to play this year, but the team doesn't need him to because it has Dave Wohlabaugh and LG Andy McCollum, who also can play center. But Turner has impressed coaches this spring, displaying good technique and quick feet in pass-blocking drills. He has a thick lower body, allowing him to anchor against bigger defenders. Turner needs to get stronger and more acquainted with the team's complex pass blocking schemes.

    WIDE RECEIVERS ANALYSIS:

    Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce form one of the NFL's best duos. Holt has overtaken Bruce as the No. 1 option. Holt has it all: hands, speed and run-after-the-catch ability. But Bruce, 31, still commands plenty of respect. He remains one of the best at getting in and out of breaks, and he delivers in the clutch. Dane Looker excels on third downs and in the red zone as a slot receiver. Mike Furrey made enough plays the second half of 2003 to enter camp as the No. 4 option. Kevin Curtis and Shaun McDonald need strong training camps to dent the top four after injuries wrecked their rookie seasons. Curtis has the speed to stretch defenses. McDonald is shifty and could thrive in the slot. He also has potential as a punt returner.

    Curtis has speed to stretch defenses. Something this offense was extremely lacking for two years.

      I don't think it is an overstatement to say that Curtis could usher the rebirth of the Greatest Show On Turf. Smart guy, good hands, great wheels. Add that to the position slots (Looker, Furrey, McDonald) and the best corp duo in football (Holt, Ike). If the O-line has solidified any from last year, Bulger will have a feast in front of him every Sunday.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

        Hubi, I 100% agree. There was a poll awhile back regarding who the "X" factor would be this year and I think for certain it is curtis.

        If curtis can come in as the slot receiver and do 1/2 the things that Az did, plus make some of those spectacular catches we saw last preseason, the Rams would have that extra threat that they are missing. Right now, cover Bruce, double cover Holt, and bump Faulk coming out of the backfield to disrupt the timing and you've got a pretty good game plan. If Curtis can blaze, we'd be back to "who you gonna cover?".
