    I'd just as soon give Berlin the first half and Null the second half. I mean those are the two guys competing, right? Let them slug it out.
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

      I'd like to see Null play against better competition just to see what happens. At this point Null offers me some hope for the future whereas Berlin offers me 3rd string talent and nothing more. I'd like to give Null every opportunity possible to continue to supply me with hope.

        I'd like to see a Berlin 1st & 3rd, with a Null 2nd & 4th. That would be a decent one game competition !!!!

          I thought Keith looked good out there. He's accurate and seems to get rid of the ball fast.

          Does anyone think he looks better than any of our other backups? I'm curious because we gave Gado the 2nd spot after his good performance. I'd be fun to see Null in there either with the 2nd or even the 1st stringers.

          Get the kid in it.

          Article on Kieth Null.

          Ryan Leaf was one of the most egregious draft busts in NFL history. He went second overall to the San Diego Chargers and failed miserably.

          He alienated teammates, fans and media types. He suffered serious shoulder and wrist injuries. Later, after the Chargers turned him out, he failed to sustain comebacks in Tampa Bay and Dallas.

          Now his protégé is trying to succeed where he failed.

          As an assistant coach at West Texas A&M, Leaf helped develop Keith Null into a hugely productive Division II quarterback. Now Null is getting his shot under much different circumstances than Leaf enjoyed -– as a sixth-round Rams draft pick fighting for the No. 3 quarterback slot.

          Many experts left him out of their pre-draft rankings. Others mentioned him as a potential street free agent, or “camp arm” as they say in the business.

          But Null could become much more than that. He is a big prospect (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) with a big arm and a nice passing touch.

          He offers intriguing physical tools and a productive collegiate background.

          With starting quarterback Marc Bulger missing the rest of preseason play with a broken finger, Null will get additional work as he battles Brock Berlin for the No. 3 job behind Bulger and Kyle Boller.

          Maybe, just maybe, Null could become a true developmental quarterback. His considerable potential could earn him a roster spot if he continues progressing through the preseason.

          Null did not look like a small-town, small-school rube during training camp. He knew exactly what he was getting into when he reported to work at Rams Park.

          Leaf helped get him ready. Null learned from Leaf’s fortune and misfortune.

          “He has gone through it all, to say the last,” Null said. “He’s definitely had a lot of experiences. He has learned from all of those.

          “We really enjoyed each other. I enjoyed having him as a coach and I know he enjoyed having me as a player. We got along great.”

          Leaf’s tenure at the school ended abruptly and badly. He developed a painkiller addiction after his NFL career ended and that led to his arrest on drug charges.

          But Leaf has stayed connected with Null while working through his personal and legal issues.

          “He just called me two or three days ago and left me a message,” Null said. “I actually have to call him back. It’s been pretty busy around here.

          “We talk every two or three weeks, He says in touch. He is very encouraging and helpful for me.”

          Null threw for 5,097 yards in his senior season and capped his career with stellar Division II playoff and all-star game performances. Null threw for 595 yards and seven touchdowns against Abilene Christian in a playoff game and later earned MVP honors at the Valero Cactus Bowl.

          "Accent-ing The Positives With Null

          “Accent-ing” the positives with Null
          By Jim Thomas
          St. Louis Post-Dispatch

          Even in the midst of Sunday’s 47-7 drubbing to Tennessee, the St. Louis Rams’ offensive unit found some humor in the Texas twang of rookie quarterback Keith Null.

          “They love it when I say ‘nek-ked right, nek-ked left,’ ” Null said.

          That’s “nek-ked” as in “naked bootleg” to those who grew up north of Mason-Dixon.

          “That’s one of the things they just love to give me heck about,” Null said. “So they even did it during the game.”

          Right in the huddle.

          “Oh yeah. Every single time I say it, they give me something about it,” Null said.

          But starting left guard Jacob Bell said he liked what he saw and heard from Null in the huddle Sunday at LP Field, accent and all.

          “It was very impressive to see a young guy with such poise in the huddle,” Bell said. “He’s southern as it is, so he speaks slow which I like. I can understand what he’s saying. But he didn’t lose his cool. He had a little laugh in there. He looked like a veteran almost.”
