  • Chances Brian Leonard runs well?

    I live in NJ and attended Rutgers (not the one Leonard went 2 i went 2 Rutgers in Newark NJ he went to Rutgers in NewBrunswick NJ)

    Anyway i liked it when we picked him up. But then he did not perform well at FB 4 Action Jackson and he was not that bad a running it.

    We traded him to the Bengals for Orien Harris who we sent 2 Detroit 4 Ron Curry.

    Now Leonard is the back-up 2 benson for the Bengals.

    So what are the chances Leonard runs well vs. the rams 1st team and 2nd team D?

    If Leonard has a huge game (not likely) will we be regretting trading him?

    I don't think he'll be running against our first team will he? Is Benson not starting?

    Anyway, the way our run defense has looked, who knows what could happen. As far as regretting a the trade, I really don't think so, as we have 3 guys competing for his job right now that are arguably of equal talent to Leonard.

      Benson is starting but he is not the best when it comes to durability so we will see Leonard vs. our 1st team a few times.

            I was just watching Hard Knocks, and according to that show Brian Leonard is competing with Dede Dorsey for the #3 RB job. He might not even make the team.

            Still don't see this guy as any big loss.

              The one in New Brunswick, NJ

              The one in Newark, NJ is mainly for business majors.

                Leonard might not even make the Bengals. He is 4th string right now.

                    Did he leap over anyone? Just kidding. I always knew that guy wasn't NFL, even if he did just score.

                        The only thing we lost was a second round pick...

                        What a waste. I liked the guy and hope he makes the team.

                            Leading up to the draft I was a big fan of his, and figured that the Pats would pick him up and they'd probably get him to a pro bowl or something. When we picked him up I was equal parts happy and angry because I felt that we didn't need a backup RB with our 2nd round pick, however still thought he was a great team player and would work out great in the NFL.

                            Of course, Lineham messed it all up and made him try out at every position other than kicker and so he never really adapted. I think if he was allowed to focus on one position first and then a second position later, he'd turn out just fine. I hope he makes the Bengals or some other roster as I still like the guy.
                            I believe!:ram:

                              I always liked Brian Leonard as I, too, live in New Jersey about 45 minutes from Rutgers. He was a good, solid college player who was an excellent student and a respected leader. That said, I was never high on him becoming anything more than a situational NFL player. He is not a true fullback (not big enough) and not a true NFL tailback (not quick enough).

                              While my heart was happy the Rams drafted him, my head said otherwise. The Giants-a team in need of a back upon Tiki Barber retiring, picked just before the Rams in round two and passed on Leonard. His trade to the Bengals in light of spotty play and injuries was not at all surprising.

                                Leonard lookin' good.

                                Leonard is looking good against SD's physical D. Too bad Hedgecock had to fumble and ruin the drive, although his leg was down. Whatever, it's pre-season, I promised myself I wouldn't get worked up.

                                I don't get to see many Ram's games. What has he been doing the past two years? Has he been injured or is he just a complete bust. I remember being really excited about him.

                                I haven't been around much the last 8 1/2 days or so. I've been traveling with my family on vacation. We were in Florida (Tampa area for 5 days) and then in the Raleigh, NC area until arriving home this afternoon. I hadn't seen a RAMS anything in all my travels....until. I was boarding the plane in Raleigh this morning heading back to Boston. I had a seat in the last row of the plane and a young couple was sitting right in front of me and the guy had a RAMS hat on. He gave me the thumbs up as I walked by and I blurted out at him LOVE YOUR HAT! We both kept to ourselves the entire flight. Then when we landed in Boston he turned around and asked me what I thought about the RAMS picks in the draft so far? I let him know that I loved our first 2 picks but I didn't know anything about the guy we drafted in the third round. Anyway to make a long story short he quickly informed me that he was from upstate New York and was a very close friend of one of our current players. Brian Leonard was one of his best friends. Being a bit puzzled I curiously asked him 3 quick questions. Is Leonard going to do anything this year?....your from upstate NY? You must be a Bills fan? Actually he said, I'm A Cowboys fan but wear the RAMS hat to support my buddy Brian. He went on to say that Brian is 100% healthy and that the new offense that the RAMS offense is learning is the same offense that Brian played in college. He also, even though he has a biased opinion feels like this will be the year that Brian finally shows his true abilities as a very good football player.

                                I have to say talk is cheap but I walked off that plane feeling pretty excited about this inside view from Leonard's close friend. Could Brian Leonard be that guy we need on the field when Jackson needs a blow? You know Brian Leonard is like the forgotten man on our team. This would certainly be a nice surprise.
