I’m going to debut a new weekly feature here tonight, which is a follow-up after gameday that will look at some of the biggest issues and opinions from the previous Rams showdown. There are plenty of issues to take from the Monday Night Football game, and I certainly can’t get them all in here, so this will be a forum for you as well. Anything you saw or any opinions you have from the game is more than welcome in the comments section, and if you just want to vent, that’s fine too. Don’t be shy … Make your voice heard in the comments section.
Rookie Impact: The truth of the matter is that there are numerous rookies who are going to be regulars on the team this season. As far as Greg Salas goes, I think some of my comments after the game may have been misunderstood. I think Salas has plenty of potential and plenty of talent, and I certainly don’t think we should be giving up on him. My point was that until he is mentally ready to handle play at this level, his reps need to be decreased. It doesn’t do anyone any good to force him out there if he’s not ready, and we don’t want to damage his confidence this early in his career. As far as the other rookies, Robert Quinn picked up his first NFL sack, and I’m just so excited about what this guy could be in the future. Lance Kendricks looked better this week, and Quinn Porter did a decent job returning kicks.
No-rwood: Could someone please explain to me why Jerious Norwood is on this team? I’m not knocking him, but if the team is never going to use him, they might as well let him go. With SJ39 out, Norwood carried the ball three times this week, bringing his season total to six. Add that to the fact that the team decided to go with rookies Salas and Porter in the return game, and I just don’t understand why he isn’t being used. I’m not saying he wouldn’t have fumbled the punt or that he would have taken a kick back to the house, but if he isn’t a better option than a guy we signed two days before the game, and he isn’t good enough to carry the ball more than three times with Jackson out, then there’s no reason to keep him on the roster.
