If Favre and Bettis retire, that'll be one heck of  an HOF class in 2010!

a report on the nfl network said that there is a chance that marshall faulk and deoin may retire as well. I don't know how big of a chance, but that's what they said.

You forgot to Cyclopsis Joe your post..

It should read:

"a report on the nfl network said that there is a chance that marshall faulk, thank God, and deion, for the ninth time, may retire as well. I don't know how big of a chance, but that's what they said."

I dont know if he will retire he certianley should retire he is a shell of his former self and if he continues to play despite a decent 2004 there are more years like 2003 in the future.

Marshall Faulk will continue to serve in a very valuable role for the Rams. While it's pretty clear that Steven Jackson will be the featured back in 2005 and beyond, Faulk can still be effective, especially on screens.

But if he's to be featured in screens predominately, then what would stop a defense from implimenting a package with an LB spy to cover him whenver he lines up in the back field? Without the ability to run, which he no longer has, he becomes a one dimensional player and virtually useless.

You forget who the Rams' coach is. Somehow, someway, he will at least attempt to make Marshall a useful player. The guy's nutty that way.

Not saying it'll work, just staying he's not hanging it up next year.

It'd be cool if he hit 20,000 yards.

I've hit 20,000 yards--but enough about my days crashing barbecues! :D

Stampman, the Wilt Chamberlain of pulled pork.

Insert your own Mockba joke.....um, wait, that's another one...

In addition to what YH said...

Your completely wrong to say that Marshall can't run anymore. He does not have the same quickness and speed he had before, but he can still run. When Martz is man enough to give the running game it's fair share of props, not only is the fact that Jackson is awesome exposed, but so it the fact the Marshall isn't all done just yet.

Personally, I think you two Rams fans are still holding out hope for the MVP Faulk to return. We outsiders can see he is a shade of his former self and almost expendable at this point with Jackson in the backfield.
