  • Key match up this weekend

    One of the most fun match ups for the weekend should be St. Claire against Little. If Little doesn't get at least 3 sacks I will be surprised.

    St. Claire's biggest weakness was the outside speed rush...Little's MO, outside speed rush. It should also help that St. Claire is not 100%. Little should be licking his chops!!!

    St.Clair is currently listed as qestionable. He might not even play.

      He's been practicing and the dulfins said that he will probably start. Vernon Carey is behind him on the depth chart, a rookie.

        I was just about to say that if St. Clair is starting, what does it say about the talent behind him?

          Personally, i think whoever grant williams is blocking, i believe jason taylor, is what I view as the key matchup.

            Believe it or not, Williams could do okay against Taylor. Williams has had real problems with "power rushing" DEs. Taylor is a speed rusher.

              AV:
              I don't think Greg Spires is considered to be a "power rusher"--he's simply not big enough. However you could make a case for Charles Grant as a "bull-rusher". Anyway, regardless of the category, Mr. Williams is getting torched by all types of DE's.

              WHAT SAY YE?

                Spires is listed at 265 on a relatively short 6'1 frame. Taylor, by contrast, is 255 lbs on a 6'6 frame.

                But its not just a matter of size, its a matter of style. Spires and Grant both managed to drive Williams back toward the QB.

                Taylor is more likely to try to go around Williams. That's his style. I think Williams will do a better job this week.

                  Still, I'd like to see Martz move the pocket a bit to try and mask Williams from danger.

                    I'm also looking at the matchups of Bruce/Holt with Surtain/Madison

                      Same here. The Dolphins have the number one passing defense in the NFL (122.7 ypg) and they will have the Rams on grass. Keeping them honest with the running game will be a key factor.

                        Amen, Jake.

                        You listening, Martz?

                          Actually Jason Taylor comes from the right side (Pace's side on offense), unless they made a switch I don't know about. David Bowens, who's been battling injury will be going up against Grant Williams.

                            I think they move Taylor around, as we are now doing with Little, so you can expect to see him lined up against Williams at times. I doubt they'd leave him to be eclipsed by Pace all day.

                              Our OT/DE Vs. their DE/OT. Certainly interesting matchups. ;)

                              Moving towards the inside, is OG Dishman ready to return as starter Vs. Dolphins?

                                Upon further review, we doubt anybody had more fun than Nelly this weekend.

                                Pettway Happy to be Home

                                Senior Writer

                                Alton Pettway believes there is a certain symmetry to his football life. He believes that he was born to be a Ram.

                                The undrafted rookie defensive end out of Albany State was born and raised in East St. Louis, has the first name of a Metro East suburb and even has an uncle named Saint Lewis. If that wasn’t enough, Pettway’s college team was known as the Rams.

                                So it was almost an easy decision as to with whom he would sign after going undrafted. The Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars showed interest in potentially drafting him, but when they didn’t, the choice was easy.

                                “It really didn’t matter because I’m a Ram,” Pettway said. “I was an Albany State Ram and now I’m a St. Louis Ram.”

                                After spending the first 12 years of his life in East St. Louis, Pettway and his parents picked up and move to Bay Minette, Ala. There, he developed a fondness for Alabama and Auburn football, the only real games in town. He was too young to be upset about leaving St. Louis, but had a feeling he might return one day.

                                “It wasn’t that big a deal because I was so young,” Pettway said.

                                Like most kids, Pettway’s love of football extends to the realm of video games. More specifically, Pettway loves the annual release of NFL simulator “Madden Football.”

                                And, like many game enthusiasts, Pettway generally takes the time to create himself on the game and use his video-rendered version to beat up on his opponents. Ironically, Pettway’s team of choice on the game is the Rams.

                                Because Pettway was a star defensive end at Division II Albany State, he had to find a place to put his video-game alter ego. Naturally, he replaced Rams’ star end Leonard Little.

                                “I play Madden a lot,” Pettway said. “In the (game), I usually substitute him out and put me in.”

                                So, it works out well that Pettway is in his first rookie minicamp with, who else, but the Rams. Making it more enjoyable for the young hybrid defensive end/linebacker is the fact that Pettway’s locker is next to Little’s.

                                When Little came to the Rams out of Tennessee, he had a much higher profile than Pettway, but there are plenty of similarities. At 6’1, 242 pounds, Pettway fits the mold of an undersized defensive end and an oversized linebacker. That same description followed Little to the league.

                                Like Little, Pettway has an innate ability to rush the passer, though. He is working this weekend exclusively as an end, but if he can make a push for the roster, it will likely come as a pure edge rusher who would work on third down.

                                Pettway made his way in football doing the same thing Little does for the Rams, getting after the quarterback. After drawing interest from Division I schools such as Mississippi and Alabama-Birmingham, Pettway settled on tiny...

                                Leonard Little's mental state
                                by Curly Horns
                                Much has been talked about in regards to Leonard Little and his indictment for felony DUI. Most of the talk has revolved around the question of his guilt and whether or not he will be suspended and/or receive jail time. Certainly he is innocent until proven guilty and all of those who are well informed know that he will be playing this season.

                                Given that he will play, I have to wonder what affect this will have on his mental approach. Certainly this is a huge distraction and a heavy mental burden to carry. Will his head be in the game and will this affect his play on the field?
