EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans kick off Sunday night as they reach the halfway point of the preseason.
Before we get there, let's take a few more of your questions in Part 2 of this week's mailbag.
As always, you can find me on Twitter @nwagoner. Please use hashtag #RamsMail so I can find your question.
Demetrius Rhaney is just too small to hold up at guard, in my opinion, and I'd tend to think if it came down to it, they'd simply flop Barrett Jones to guard and have Rhaney at center before they'd play Rhaney at guard. I will say this, though: One thing the Rams (and most teams) value in backup offensive linemen is versatility. So it wouldn't hurt Rhaney's status to prove he can handle the work at guard. Even if he's a backup, it would behoove him to learn guard because he could then at least be more likely to be active on game days.
@nwagoner: From a football standpoint, sure. The extra repetitions against another team over two days is a good thing and should help speed things up for the team to potentially start a bit faster. From a PR standpoint, probably not. And I'm not talking about the fighting. They may or may not care about the public perception in St. Louis right now and it wasn't all that good to begin with, but having what amounted to a pep rally in the city where the owner intends to relocate his team isn't a good look. That's not to say the fans in Los Angeles should be blamed. They turned out to support their team and should be commended for their dedication just like the fans in St. Louis who have stuck by the team. It's unfortunate that this whole situation has turned Rams fans in both cities against each other rather than focusing on their shared passion for the team. Such is the situation the Rams and owner Stan Kroenke have created.
Of course Fisher says the time in Oxnard was worth it but what's your assessment Nick? #RamsMail— Nick Ritson (@skippyrit) August 20, 2015
