Quote of the Day

CB Ron Bartell’s coverage has slipped, but he’s also been playing hurt.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Bernie Miklasz in his 5 Minutes column about Rams CB Ron Bartell.

Interesting note that Bartell is playing hurt as he has been one of the worst corners in the league in 2009.  We haven’t heard anything about an injury this season for Bartell, but that gives hope that Bartell is simply suffering this season because an injury is sapping his speed and agility.

For Rams fans, let’s hope that Bartell is in fact injured and his true skill level is more like what we saw last season.

UPDATE: More info from an AP story by R.B. Fallstrom.

…top cornerback Ron Bartell has lacked top speed for several weeks due to a lingering groin injury that brings pain with every step.

That would make sense why Bryant Johnson of all people was able to burn him a few times on Sunday.
