I can't wait to watch the Rams play this year.With Drew Bennett,Marc Bulger,and my man Brian Leonard running the ball.The only bad thing is that Kevin Curtis had to leave but they will still be a blast to watch.It should be a very high scoring offense as usual.

I forgot about Dane Looker.I used to watch him play in the Pac Ten for the University of Washington.He would have been another Wayne Chrebet if they would play him more.Klopfenstein is fun to watch as well.

Leonard may get use as a receiver, but I doubt he will get a lot of use as a serious ball carrier.

Is it any coincidence that Jackson is starting to talk up his personal aims for the season?

ST. LOUIS (June 14, 2007) -- Steven Jackson always sets goals for himself. This year, the St. Louis Rams running back has his eye on the NFL single-season mark for yardage.

Jackson wants to break the current mark of 2,529 yards from scrimmage, set by former Ram Marshall Faulk in 1999. Last year, Jackson's goal was 1,600 yards rushing; he fell short with 1,528 yards.

im kinda hoping Jackson leaves at the end of next season better yet goes down at the start f this one Linehan has said Brian is the 2nd string rnning bakc and if he can crack a 1000 yard season as we know he can and white runnng backs may get a shot

TE: Joe Klopfenstein
WR: Drew bennett, Dane Looker
OT: Todd Steussie, Drew Strojny

Brandon Chillar is not White and Adam Timmerman was cut. Also Aaron Walker is a loooong shot to make the roster.

Chillar's father is from India, Indian . I'm also slightly Cherokee like Col. Reb.

Many Indians are white. Many are Dravidian. Most are mixed. I'd still consider him white because of his look, and the fact that unless he is an engineer, his Indian ethnicity doesn't factor in the United States. In the US, Indians were classified as members of the Caucasian race.

Will anyone crash the Tennessee message boards with me at Footballsfuture, Scout.com, Tennessee's Yahoo page and Tennessee's official site message board to blast their GM for passing on Leonard in favour of Chris Henry and his 3.5 yards a carry out of Arizona just b/c he ran a 4.33 40 yard dash?

It sickens me that Henry is likely to get plenty of playing time in Tennessee b/c of their need at RB. Leonard is listed in fantasy magazines behind guys like Henry, Brandon Jackson of the Packers, Kenny Irons of Cincinatti (he might compliment Rudy Johnson as a scat HB) and Phili's Tony Hunt despite being listed as the third best RB by NFLdraftscout.com for this draft year.

Also could someone tell me when Steven Jackson's contract is up with St. Louis b/c I don't see Leonard doing very much with Jackson on the team.

Speaking as a Rams fans, I know in the Martz offense he worked his RB's alot. Linehan is even heavier on RB carries but it seems to only go to one guy. Stephen Davis, when he was Steven Jackson's backup, did get a few carries here and there but only really played to spell Jackson or when he was injured. Now Leonard has more skills that Stephen Davis, but why is he listed as the 2nd string FB??? Given, Jackson is one of the best backs in the NFL, but Brian should at least be the backup RB instead of the backup FB...At the site, it shows the RB depth chart as Jackson, Kay-Jay Harris, Travis Minor, Stephen Davis and Rich Alexis. On the FB side it show Madison Hedgecock then Leonard. Can someone verify this garbage????....Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me!!!

P.S. Notice how they put Drew Bennett as Torry Holt's backup instead of Bruce's backup. If the Rams only run a 2 WR set, he'll never see the field. Notice how all of the good skill players in FB (Bennett, Leonard, Hillis at Arkansas, Smith at Auburn) are always stuck behind maybe the one or two black player in the nation who actually are just as good as them. And with everything being equal, they never see the field? Can never get a break

John D is another one of those stat conscious retards. "He never produced a one thousand yard season." They gave all the carries to Rice. Not getting carries has nothing to do with how good a running back someone is. Disgraceful commentary.

They don't do that with exclusively white running backs--they don't have enough white running backs to use that technique exclusively, so they practice on blacks sometimes, after of course complementing their superior athleticism. So you should see them mislead the viewers all of the time. But when a white RB comes along, they always trash his rushing yard totals.
