    :ram: Can't blame you, 56. It is tough and it hurts, especially when one of the top negotiation requests is to have Jax at camp days ago. // I'm really hoping this gets solved early next week.

          Feel your pain, but when NFL teams start acting with some sort of intergrity then players will, players sure don't play for free and this aint pop warner. You should blame the Rams for not getting this done earlier, they had plenty of time to get it done, and they didn't plain and simple. There is no way he should go into camp being a lame duck, you should be happy this shows at least he wants to stay. I tell you what they'd better get it done quickly so that this doesn't turn into a Orlando Pace type situation. The last thing you wanna do is have a player unhappy in a franchise tag situation. I'm for him getting his money, and that whole deal about them cutting him is not that smart cause another team would be happy to pick him up. He's shown what he can do and they should take care of him.

            I have a lot of sympathy with 56 here.

            The issue that crops regularly in professional sports as a whole not just football, is that players have gotten into the habit of forgetting the terms of their original contract and seeking to move or renegotiate in advance of their remaining years.

            Often, this is at the behest of the ever-present larcenist, the agent. Having worked out contract value escalation by position over the period their client's existing contract, guaged performance and weighed certain 'intangibles' like appearing as the featured player in a teams adterisement effort, the agent starts whispering sweet nothings.

            Those sweet nothings can be boiled down to this:

            Renege on your current contract, hold out for a better deal and if doesn't happen sit out the year and we'll move teams for a much bigger deal.

            If a player is smart he keeps his mouth shut during the whole process, if he's not he issues a Jerry Maguire-like " You can't believe how hard it is to play for 1mil a year plus bonuses". The public throws him in the stocks of negative publicity and pelts him with the verbal equivalent of rotten fruit. He doesn't care because he knows that if he gets them to the playoffs the smell will soon disappear and they'll love him again.

            But here's the rub.

            The very next time said player decides to castigate certain section of the fanbase for being as solid as jelly in the face of adversity, he'll find he runs out of credibility. Its hard to talk about commitment after being seen to renege on the contract you were more than happy to sign 4 years ago. Its hard to talk about being totally behind the effort to turn the franchise around when you're sitting at home, trying read your playbook through your PDA. Its hard to get 2500 yards when you miss the first 2-3 weeks of pre-season and the installation of a complex offense.

            He'll be re-signed. He's a great player. He'll do really well in Al's offense if he stays injury free. He's vital to the franchise turning things around.

            I just wish that when players sign the bloody contract that they play it out.

            Its called good faith.

              Excellent post, Fat Pang. "The rub" comments are correct!
              As far as "good faith" goes. I think that phrase is more of a concept than a reality. Sadly....

                I would venture to say that Steven Jacksons' situation with his agent(s) had alot to do with this issue not being addressed sooner by the RAMS.

                  Re: Steven Jackson "bring It"

                  I hope you guys are hard on everyone that holds out not just Steven Jackson. Were you guys this harsh to Faulk. How about Henry Ellard when he mssed 88 days and 7 regular season games did you guys treat him this harshly? Did Ellard,Faulk and Dickerson all deserve to be released because Lombardi would have released them? Or is it just Jackson that deserves this? I don't like holdout's because it's not really good for either side but it doesnt mean Jackson isnt dedicated or mean he isnt a team player. Were Faulk and Ellard not dedicated and not team players because they heldout? Ellard missed 7 regular season games and he is a Rams icon. I think Jackson is getting a lot of un-warrented flak for holding out. Unfortunately it's the nature of the business that is the NFL.

                    If you're looking for something to blame, I think you can blame the franchise tag. Without that rule, the Rams would be forced to re-sign Jackson now or risk competing for his services next year. With the tag, the Rams have a safety net that keeps them from having to re-sign Jackson in the foreseeable future.

                      Re: Steven Jackson "bring It"

                      Some very good posts have come in this thread, especially the one that kicked it off, very nice 56.

                      I still feel the same way that I've felt for the last few months. Both sides are better off if Jax resigns before the year starts. Jax will be protected against injury and the Rams will seal him up long term, however, now it has the added pressure that he is holding out and is no doubt getting fined for missing camp. If Jackson wanted to hold out the first day or even the first weekend, I could understand. It would be a symbolic gesture saying that he didn't have to come, but he wanted to get into camp and get to work. I think Devin Hester did it exactly right. He said that he would hold out until he got a deal, but then showed up on the second day, having shown that yes, he could hold out, but he wanted to get to work and trusted a deal would get done.

                      Jackson is just about at that line in my mind. The line between holding out but being a team player and wanting to get to work and the disruptive player who is just in it for the money. And the key is, he's under contract. He agreed to the deal and the deal is that he is there for camp. Hold out in the offseason, hold out for a day or two to start camp, but after that, get into camp and work if you're under contract.

                      Usually I support the player, because, as Ocho Cinco said, the team doesn't have to hold up its part of the bargain(they can cut players), why should players? They need to get all they can when they can. However, the Rams have asked that Jax get into camp to work and that he will be taken care of. There's no reason for the Rams to lie about that because, simply, we have no great depth behind him. Sure, Pittman could be the next Ryan Grant, however, it's unlikely. The Rams want Jackson long term and Jackson needs to realize that. The Rams will be much more willing to give him more money if he gets his butt to Mequon.

                      So yeah, I agree with 56. Jackson, if you don't get into camp within a few days, I'm all for trading your butt for a couple 1st round picks and either moving on or maybe trading the Giants for one of their backs. I hear that the Bears could use a starting RB.
                      I believe!:ram:

                        The game's changed, the attitudes have changed. It's not 1975 anymore where players are willing to work for cheap. Name me one top-5 player in his position that's working for $600,000 per year or less...I'll wait. The holdout isn't a new phenomenon introduced by Steven Jackson and this is pretty much the only way players can get leverage when asking for a new contract.

                          Yep, Marc Bulger, with a year remainng on his existing contract pretty much did the same thing a few years ago when he threatened to sit out the entire season if he didn't get a new deal. He held out for a day, sending a strong message, prompting the Rams to quickly work out a $65 million package. Maybe Jackson was expecting things to work out quicky for him too. For whatever reason, it hasn't.

                          Without knowing the details, it's hard to judge what's really going on, so I really can't condemn Jackson just yet.

                              I am befuddled as to why players can get away with holding out and making new demands when they are already under contract. Does this happen in the normal business or banking world? I think not.

                              Why is it that if a team does not live up to it's part of a contract (does that ever happen?) the players' union would be all over it. Meanwhile, they remain on the sidelines when a player is not willing to fulfill a legal contract which he has signed.

                                Manned by individuals who know the

                                Talent levels in the NFL these days are fairly
                                close, even between the top and the bottom teams.
                                As a result, no team is ever too far away from rising
                                to the level of a playoff team. The Rams have been,
                                it seems close to that level for years. But who will get them
                                there? Certainly not the coaching staff, which lacks the
                                ability to maximize the talent we have. Certainly not
                                the front office, which knows money but not talent.
                                Certainly not the owner, who adds nothing to this team.

                                It all starts at the top for the Rams. Scott Linehan is a symptom of an overall problem that won't be corrected until the FLOW CHART OF DOOM is cut from the top. Get a new owner, hire a true football GM, bring in a new coaching staff, enhance the talent...

                                That, my friends, is the only formula that will bring sustained success.

                                Don't be fooled by reports of negotiations with Mario Williams. He's just a pawn to get Bush's price down a bit. Bush is the "can't not take this guy" prospect in this draft.

                                2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

                                Saints will get a guy who will be an impact rookie, and will a Pro Bowl selection within a few years. OTs in the NFC South will hate this pick.

                                3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
                                For months, everyone has tried to find a reason to downgrade Young. The bottom line is, he's an exceptional performer on the football field, which is all that really should matter.

                                4. New York Jets: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
                                D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be the safer and, perhaps, the more logical choice, but the Jets are still a Broadway team, and Davis will make a lot more highlight film plays.

                                5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, OhioState
                                With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

                                6. San Francisco Niners: Michael Huff, DB, Texas
                                Niners will be a bit thrown by the selection of Davis at number 4, as he was likely their target. Huff will be touted as the next Ronnie Lott, though he's a different type of player.

                                7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
                                Leinart would have been the first pick in 2005, but he'll drop to number 7 in this draft. No problem – with his Hollywood image, he'll make up the money in endorsement contracts.

                                8. Buffalo Bills: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
                                Bills are surprised by Ferguson's fall, and will eagerly snatch him up. He'll start as a rookie, obviously.

                                9. Detroit Lions: Antonio Cromartie, DB, FSU
                                There always seem to be surprises coming out of Detroit, and this year is no exception. Cromartie's stock has been shooting up in recent weeks following his workout.

                                10. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
                                Many teams (not the Rams, though) will try to trade up for Cutler but, in the end, he'll head to the Southwest to be Kurt Warner's short-term understudy.

                                11. St. Louis Rams: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
                                Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy… will four times be the charm? Ram fans hope so, and Ngata is certainly a good prospect. Maybe the best prospect of the bunch.

                                12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
                                Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland. They would have been happy with Ngata too.

                                13. Baltimore Ravens: Winston Justice, OT, USC
                                Will be a good RT initially, and will be the heir apparent to Jonathan Ogden, who is now 32. A good value pick.

                                14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
                                While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his...

                                Is the QB position the most important?
                                by Dominating D
                                It seems to be an ongoing argument here at the clam....

                                So I've decided to breakdown each division to identify which team has the more productive/talented QB. Then review which teams were playoff contenders and how the average to below average teams faired.

                                Patriots -- Brady
                                Jets -- Sanchez
                                Dolphins -- Henne
                                Bills -- ? Edwards
                                -----------------------

                                Bengals -- Palmer
                                Ravens -- Flacco
                                Steelers -- Big Ben
                                Browns -- Quinn
                                ----------------------

                                Colts -- Manning
                                Texans -- Schaub
                                Titans -- Young
                                Jaguars -- Garruard
                                ----------------------

                                Chargers -- Rivers
                                Broncos -- Orton
                                Chifs -- casell(sp)
                                Raiders -- pick anyone
                                ------------------------

                                Cowboys -- Romo
                                Eagles -- McNabb
                                Giants -- Manning
                                Redskins -- Campbell
                                ------------------------

                                Saints -- Brees
                                Falcons -- Ryan
                                Panthers -- Moore
                                Bucaneers -- Freeman?
                                -----------------------

                                Vickings -- Favre
                                Packers -- Rodgers
                                Bears -- Cultler
                                Lions -- Stafford
                                ----------------------

                                Cardinals -- Warner
                                Whinners -- Smith
                                Hawks -- Hasselbeck
                                Rams -- Bulger
                                ---------------------


                                Playoff teams and QB

                                Jets -- Sanchez
                                Bengals -- Palmer
                                Ravens -- Flacco
                                Patriots -- Brady
                                Colts -- Manning
                                Chargers -- Rivers

                                Eagles -- McNabb
                                Cowboys -- Romo
                                Packers -- Rodgers
                                Cardinals -- Warner
                                Vickings -- Favre
                                Saints -- Brees

                                Hate to say it folks but it seems the majority of times that the teams with the best QB in thier division make the playoffs.
