    I wouldn't put anything past Snead when it comes to pre-draft moves but you're right I don't think there is much to this.

    But what about T.J. Larry and T.J. Curly?

    I was one of those camp guys who loved Helmick. But I also had a nice little chat with someone affiliated with the Lindenwood program, who claimed Mr. Helmick was not someone who enjoyed practicing. He didn't endear himself to his teammates, because he always seemed to come up with some sort of ailment (tweaked hamstring, tender ankle, etc) on Tues, which would render him unable to practice, but on Saturday, there he was showing up and being the best player on the field.

    I found this to be an interesting comment the SECOND DAY of camp, and coincidently, he tweaks his hamstring lest than a week later. Not saying an UDFA would be stupid enough to go down with a fictitious injury while trying to make a team. But it does make one think.

    From his performance when he was on the field, he certainly showed a lot more than some of the others. Guys like Blake, Veltung, who eventually stuck around as PS players. Just wonder if there was more to his release than meets the eye.

    Sounds like it!

    You got to work to survive on a Fisher roster.

    I thought I posted a response but I guess I didn't.......I typed it out anyway.

    Anyway Dickerson was getting poked by a reporter who told him that Greg Bell had gained 1000 yards for the Rams and his response was essentially "Big deal, Larry Curly and Mo could get 1000 behind that line".

    I'm sure some other guys recall that.......but back then with no internet it didn't go far. These days it would go viral for sure.

    Moe has zero bearing on whether or not we draft Watkins.

    Did I see that the Rams signed TJ Moe today? If so does this mean anything?
