Monday Haslett Press Conference
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rams Insider
GridIronGateway.com Oct 6, 2008

Rams head coach Jim Haslett talked Monday about injuries, what he thinks Daniel Fells can bring to the team, on if he noticed a fresh energy to the team today, on losing Randy McMichael for the year, on if he believes Steven Jackson is back to full speed, on if Leonard Little being back will help Chris Long, and if there is anything new with Fakhir Brown.


Rams Head Coach Jim Haslett
October 6, 2008

(Opening Remarks)
“Just real quick, we put (TE) Randy McMichael on IR. We signed Daniel Fells off the practice squad at Tampa (Bay). He’s from Cal-Davis, good-looking kid. We’re hoping we can get him ready to play this week. The schedule will be our players will be off tomorrow and then there will be a normal Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I think special teams is at 7:20 (a.m.), but that doesn’t bother, but normal practice. Everything else is the same. Injury wise, (LB) Will Witherspoon worked a little bit today. (WR) Dante Hall has a hamstring, but he worked a little. Basically, everybody kind of worked today. Nothing new.”

(On what other injury TE Randy McMichael in addition to his broken tibia)
“He’s got a torn or high sprain. He’s got a torn ligament, which is the biggest concern. The bone it will heal, but we’re more concerned with the torn ligament, which will take a little bit more time.”

(On the prospects of WR Keenan Burton at this time)
“Well, I don’t think he’ll do any this week. I’m hoping next week, I hope him and (WR) Drew (Bennett) will be back next week. There’s a chance we could bring in (WR) Derek Stanley from the practice squad this week, depending on how he works, but again we’ll make that decision later on as the week goes.”

(On what he thinks TE Daniel Fells can bring to the team)
“He’s a big body, a guy that can play fullback, can play tight end, he’s got good hands, runs pretty good routes. We talked to the Tampa Bay people after we signed him and they really liked him and they didn’t want to lose him. They were actually paying him the full amount of money to try and keep him, but obviously having an opportunity to get a credited season and get on the field kind of swayed him here a little bit.”

(On if he noticed a fresh energy to the team today)
“I thought the energy was good. I thought the tempo on offense was excellent and I thought that the defense played fast, it was limited reps, but again they moved around well, they were into it. I think that’s all you can ask. I liked the tempo of the offense today.”

(On TE Joe Klopfenstein’s opportunity to play with TE Randy McMichael on IR)
“He’ll be the started and he needs to step up and play. He has all the ability in the world. Guy comes in his first year starts 16 games, plays well, good blocker and the guy can run and catch and it’s an opportunity, he needs to step up and take advantage of it. And I don’t see why he won’t. They guy’s got a lot of ability, he just has to grab the bull by the horns.”

(On if TE Daniel Fells will be active on Sunday because you have to have three tight ends active)
“Well, not necessarily, we’ll see how he goes. Buffalo came at us last week with two tight ends, two (running) backs, no fullback, and a bunch of wide outs, so not necessarily, we’ll see how he goes.”

(On losing TE Randy McMichael for the year and what the team will lose from not having him)
“He is a guy that is another playmaker on our football team. It’s a shame. He’s a good kid. He worked hard. He’s one of our better blockers and he’s a guy who can run and go catch it, so obviously not having him is going to hurt us. Again, I expect Joe (Klopfenstein) to step up and we’re going to be okay.”

(On if TE Anthony Becht’s role will expand)
“We’re down to really two guys who know what’s going on. Anthony is one of the better blockers in the league. I think he’s the kind of guy who can go in there and change the game just because you want to give the ball to Steven (Jackson) and he’s in there and the guy is as big as a tackle. He’s one of those guys who can really step in there and rout them out if he wants.”

(On if he believes RB Steven Jackson is back to full speed and if some of his previous games were a result of the holdout)
“I do. Any time you miss training camp, especially a running back, you’re not use to the contact. You’re not use to the cutting. Invariably, usually if you hold out that long, you get hurt and he had that groin injury. I think he’s over that now. I think the bye probably came at a good time for us so now he can be refreshed. I thought he ran extremely last week, maybe one or two plays you didn’t like, but for the most part I thought he did a nice job.”

(On if QB Marc Bulger seems refreshed and on his energy level)
“Marc’s a laid back guy. I’ll tell you what I see in Marc. I see a guy who looks like he’s confident in what he’s doing. He’s stepping up in the pocket. If you watched practice today, he threw balls that were, he looked like he was on fire today. When his mechanics are good and he feels like he has time and he can step up, he’s probably about as good as anybody in the business, the way he throws it.”

(On how good is was to see DE Leonard Little back in action)
“Obviously, you get two sacks. You missed him all last year and the beginning of this year. I think that’s a big asset to your defense when you lose one of the premiere pass rushers in the league. Obviously, having him back will be a big lift for the defense.”

(On if DE Leonard Little being back will help DE Chris Long)
“No doubt about it. Now, you are going to get the chips back to Leonard and Chris is going to get singled. If they want to double-chip both, obviously that will help you in coverage.”

(On what happened to LB Pisa Tinoisamoa during conditioning)
“He’s just cramping. He was all wired up today, running around. He did a good job in practice and he just started cramping a little bit.”

(On it not taking much to get him wired up)
“Not at all. He’s a little dynamo.”

(On if there is anything new with Fakhir Brown)
“Nothing. Nothing at all. Hopefully something here today or tomorrow.”

(On if there are any changes from the lineup against the Bills)
“No. I don’t think so. Maybe we will bring up (WR) Derek Stanley off the practice squad, but again, that will be a late in the week decision.”

(On any changes to the starting 22)
“No. The same.”

Notebook: Packers take a look at punters

Despite his best performance since Week 1, Derrick Frost’s days as the Green Bay Packers’ punter could be numbered.

The Packers on Monday worked out four punters, including former Bay Port High School and University of Wisconsin standout Ken DeBauche and former Pro Bowler Scott Player....

++++Deal, based on Thomas ripping Thomas for the offensive pass interference, I'd say that someone on the defense, Fletch maybe needs to take that role as the defensive ripper...

1. What has he had to rip about lately?

2. What makes you think he hasn't when appropriate?

I think Fletcher established himself as the leader on D early last year, and really stepped it up- after the tragic death of S. Taylor.

Posted by: football-loving-foreigner | October 7, 2008 11:56 AM | Report abuse

My understanding is that Zorn likes Heyer's ability to pass-protect. Jansen appears to be a better run-blocker, and has gotten his feet "underneath" himself again in pass-blocking, after a suspect preseason. Remember, he was still recovering from a broken leg. Heyer's shoulder is still bothering him, so Jansen will continue to start. Best case scenerio may be to get Heyer back in a few weeks, and have Jansen ready in the wings, since he has had a number of season-ending injuries the last couple of years.

Disagree. If jansen has another zero sack outing this week, and the run game continues to work over the right side, too, there’s no reason to switch back. Jansen appears to have regained his mobility—and certainly his motivation—and if it ain’t broke…

And, by the way, unlike you, Coles (who has actually done business with Dan Snyder) has nothing but good things to say about the Redskins organization. He was quoted in the New York Times when Pete Kendall came here saying that the Redskins management was player-oriented.

dealer:

This is what Coles said about the Redskins. It doesn't say "Gibbs." It says the whole organization. It says "EVERYTHING's first class":

"Receiver Laveranues Coles, who played two seasons with the Redskins before being traded back to the Jets, the team that drafted him, was asked what Kendall could expect.

“The great thing over there I would say is they’re going to take care of the guys,” Coles said. “That’s the type organization they have. They take care of the players. It’s a players-first organization. Everything’s first-class. I’m sure it’s a great situation for him.”

What I'm saying there is that for the older veterans, their career/usefulness can be extended by having them in reserve. If Heyer is an equal, let's use the younger body, so we have more depth. Apparently, Zorn has opted for the better pass protection, also.

How about Portis' comments today on the Dan Patrick show about J Campbell. Probably just trying to keep the team under the radar stll. Still very interesting though.

On the contrary, it's not very interesting at all, except to those who don't understand Clinton's motives: Keep the Redskins under the radar, and more importantly, keep Jason Campbell under the radar if possible, and allow the media and other teams to continue to underestimate JC and the Skins.

Meanwhile, let Eli and Romo and McNabb keep thinking that they are the best in the NFL, regardless of what actual performances and stats should be telling them. JC and the Skins can just hang around in the shadows and surprise other teams as they blow by on the way to the playoffs.

Creating overconfidence in your opponents can be an effective tool when done properly. It's nice to see that CP understands this.

Funny, Joe Gibbs understood that concept too (very well), we all see how that worked out. I understand what CP is trying to do, but why not just leave that subject alone. That would have been the best move. Shouldn't be a problem though.

I don't think JC cares, but I don't think any other RB in the NFC East would say that about his QB. In know it's not a big deal, just thought it deserved some discussion.

And if those were his motives (to keep the team under the radar), he failed miserabely. By saying that he draws more attention to the team now, and gives reporters something to write about. It is/was on the front page of SI.com. Again, not a bright move, but also not a big deal.

Steven Jackson did not run over Sean Taylor. Jackson had already gotten into field goal territory and Taylor did the smart thing and went for the strip. Field goal or TD in overtime doesn't make a difference its a L for WSH. Great effort by Taylor.
Did anyone else immediately think after they saw Landry get run over by Jacobs, that Taylor wouldn't be getting run over like that?

I also thought that when Horton was getting run over by Barber in the Dallas game, and will probably think of the great Grim Reaper every time I see a great hit or see a RB run over a safety. Some people just leave a forever impression. RIP
