  • Poor Kick Return Play

    Anyone out there besides me, wondering why the Rams haven't pursued Tony Horne after KC cut him? Is he still available?

    Hey Duke, I am told he has lost a step after the foot injury.

    Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

      You're probably right or they would have snatched him up as soon as Vermiel cut him. I guess I'm just digging for something.

      It sure was nice when every drive didn't start at the 20 though.

        April in November

        No doubt Duke, special teams is in dire need of special attention ...returns AND coverage! True, Rams should be able to average their field position at the 35 -- keep opponents further back, with a better percentage on that as well.
        Come on April, it's already November!... :mad:

          Hakim has been holding on to the ball lately.Maybe the Rams ought to let Az return kickoffs and punt returns.;)

            Rams 2018 Special Teams
            by bruce4life
            It is very apparent we are missing the 2017 version of our Special Teams unit. If you look at the punt and kick return units instead of being tremendous boost to our Team throughout the year, they have been quite the opposite. I can count 6 drives over the last 2 games alone where the special teams unit has killed them.

            We all want to blame the offense right off the bat but this unit has been a hindrance for the bulk of the year....

            Who didn't think Dante would pay off or the Special teams wouldn't be special. I know you all just saw that kick return. Yeah baby. He'll get a few more of those this year. The only thing was it me or did he run out of gas.

            Would it kill the RAMS to hire some special teams?

            It seems like ever since the loss of Tony Horne the Rams have tried everyone short of Warner and Bulger on the (not so) special teams, this got even worse with the loss of Hakim-not that he was all that (Fumble master) but, he could run with it and actually change direction when the defense ran at him. (huge concept)
            What I'm saying is is it possible to find someone else (not already on the RAMS team) to do the job.
            There has got to be a few hundred speedsters out there dying for the job, I wonder have they even looked?
            I fear this will be another year of runbacks against our special teams followed by 10-15 yard average kick/punt returns by our recycled receivers or RB's.

            This has to be fixed to win! remember the Special teams in the 99 season (First rate).

            Rams Downfall
            by RamWraith
            IF the Rams lose this weekend it will be because of one thing....and its the one thing that scares the hell out of me.
            SPECIAL TEAMS...

            The Pack and their return man Rossum scare the buggers out of this fan. We need not to give the Pack field position and not allow any big runs. MARK MY WORDS if we loose its because of this....

            Is it just me or did they look pretty good today. Kickoff and punt coverage was there. Its a new Rams world and we are living in it.
