The Rams Saturday placed reserve tight end James McDonald on injured reserve with a knee injury and activated linebacker-special teams player Norwood Vann. The Rams practiced without pads while Eric Dickerson watched. It was still uncertain whether he would play against the Raiders at Anaheim Stadium Monday night.

It seems to me that much more needs to be done for the Los Angeles Rams than to teach Eric Dickerson not to fumble. A shakeup of the coaching staff is a priority. The Rams' offense is about as unimaginative as we ever see. D. McNEELY Apple Valley

Upon reading Eric Dickerson's remarks about Raider running back Bo Jackson, I can't help feeling that Dickerson is certainly a legend in his own mind. I hope after his fourth 100-yard game, Coach Meyer is ready for contract renegotiations. TOBIN HOOD Riverside

Now it can be told. Eric Dickerson's two-game holdout was designed to remove any doubt about his single-season rushing record. He clearly intends to surpass O.J. Simpson's rushing mark in a 14-game season. FRANK JOHNSON Las Vegas

Why can't our athletes, especially Eric Dickerson, understand that money is the bottom line. It is not for them, primarily, but for the interested agents and attorneys. The real winners of these holdouts are the IRS and the agents. EDWARD WHITE Los Angeles

In his latest remarks to the press, Eric Dickerson has managed to anger and isolate many, many already weary football fans. Please release him, let him go, or whatever. MARILEE ROSE Arcadia

Eric Dickerson seems to have no class and no ethics. The Rams seem to be penurious and unwilling to pay top dollar for top talent. I am now unwilling to pay the Rams top dollar for their tickets. PAT LEAKE San Dimas

So Eric Dickerson thinks the Rams gave up too much for Everett. Well, Jim shouldn't worry too much about what Eric thinks. I don't think Eric cared what other people thought when he sat out last year until he got what he thought the Rams should give him. MIKE THOMAS Canoga Park

Poetic justice! Two superstar holdouts, Eric Dickerson and Dan Marino, come tantalizingly close to the Super Bowl and then fall flat on their greedy faces--on the same day. A contract is a contract is a contract. MICHAEL DeMATTIA Newbury Park

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson finished the season nine yards short of the NFL season rushing record, and he had one person on his mind afterward: Eric Dickerson, the man who still has the record. “I know Eric Dickerson is feeling so good right now,” Peterson said with a chuckle. “But God willing, I'll get it next year.” Peterson's run for the record was even more remarkable when you consider he tore ligaments in his left knee last season, an injury that is difficult for a running back to return from.
