Their D-line was about the only unit that worried me - less so now.

Roll on week one, roll on, roll on...

I will be shocked if he gets another chance in St Louis. Health is a skill he just does not have.

What do you guys think about Scott Pioli shopping the talented SS Bernard Pollard in favor of starting the 31 year old and injury prone Mike Brown?

10 Re: Adam Carriker Out For Season

I think that Pollard is absolutely useless in pass coverage, and this outweighs his big hitting in run support. While no-one can reasonably expect Mike Brown to stay healthy these days, I think he's an upgrade on Pollard when he is playing.

I can't say anything about Pollard's coverage skills, but Mike Brown has lost a lot of speed. His instincts are correct, but his declining physical skills really hold him back.

Brown is still good at run support but he's not going to last very long in the box.

Carruker okay palyer when play but now not going to play so need backup to step up probably not going to beause ths is Rams we are taking about and when was last time they were any good? 2001 super bowl team. Made playoffs a couple times since then but 8-8 wone of those years so like big deal who doers that relaly impress? Nobofy that's who.
