    Mike Furrey second in NFL receptions
    by Bruce=GOAT
    Mike Furrey ended up with 98 catches, over 1,000 yds and 6 TD's. I am not saying that we should have kept him, as we are so deep at WR and he was a ball-hawking S but got burnt too often. I just thought that he put up a very good season quietly.

    People Need To Stop Questioning Mike Furrey
    by ramsbruce
    Furrey is playing some real good ball right now. Yes he is rough around the edges on his tackling, but man is he a ball hawk. We haven't had a playmaker in the secondary like him since Dre Bly was here. If Furrey can get better with tackling and the angles he takes he can be a premier safety in the league.

    Good Job Mike. :helmet:

    Furrey eager to show he can make impact on defense

    Wide receiver is moving to free safety

    BY STEVE KORTE

    News-Democrat


    ST. LOUIS - When St. Louis Rams coach Mike Martz approached wide receiver Mike Furrey about moving to the defensive side of the ball, Furrey immediately embraced the radical proposal.

    "Coach Martz came up and mentioned to me if I had every thought about playing free safety," Furrey said. "I didn't even think about it. I just told him right there, 'Let's do it. Whatever it takes to help the team out and contribute, whatever it takes to get on the field on Sundays."'

    Furrey was wearing a No. 25 jersey instead of his old No. 82 during the Rams' mandatory minicamp this weekend. He said he's actually enjoyed the challenge of moving to free safety.

    "It took me only a couple of days of working out to fall in love with it," Furrey said. "That's what I want to do."

    To switch positions, Furrey packed on more than 20 pounds of muscle in the last three months. He now weights 202 pounds compared to 180 pounds last season.

    "My wife cooked a lot," Furrey said. "I ate a lot of food ... potatoes, steaks. I just loaded it up three times a day for the last three months. My weight kept going up and up."

    Furrey also spent three hours a day in the weight room to make sure that he was adding muscle, not fat.

    "The biggest thing was making sure I kept my legs underneath me, and I could still run," Furrey said. "It has been good."

    Furrey said he's finished adding weight. He feels like he can be an effective free safety at his current weight, even though he's still a little light for the position by NFL standards.

    "(Rams safety Adam) Archuleta can be 215 (pounds), but I don't know if I can carry 215 pounds," Furrey said. "I'll probably stay around 200 or 205 (pounds)."

    Furrey caught 20 passes for 189 yards in 2003, but he caught only one pass for eight yards last season as he was passed by both Kevin Curtis and Shaun McDonald on the Rams' depth chart at wide receiver.

    Furrey's biggest contribution last season came on special teams as he tied for second on the team in special teams tackles with 13.

    Despite his lack of size, Furrey was a proficient wedge buster on the Rams' punt and kickoff coverage squads.

    Martz said Furrey was so valuable on special teams that he started brainstorming for ways to make sure Furrey was among the 45 players that dressed for games.

    "He's such an excellent football player, we have to find a way to get him on the field," Martz said.

    Martz said Furrey has been a natural at free safety so far.

    "He's done a good job," Martz said. "He's getting the calls down. He's doing a...
