The Rams, struggling to stay under the $34.6 million salary cap, might re-sign Eatman later for less money. Ram coaches were disappointed with Eatman's performance last season and had been shopping for a veteran tackle until the draft.

For most, football has become a game of statistics. But one set of players--the offensive linemen--have no statistics. There is no way to look quickly at a set of figures and decide who did the job and who didn't. Irv Eatman, the 290-pound offensive tackle of the Kansas City Chiefs, by way of UCLA and the United States Football League, is recognized as one of the best. For three years he was all-USFL with the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars.

Ram tackle Irv Eatman did not appear emotionally shaken or particularly scared Thursday, a most peculiar reaction from a man who will be matched against Lawrence Taylor on Sunday. Talk about mayhem in the big city. Picture the New York Post headlines Monday morning: "L.T. Boots Wimps Back To Quicheland." The Giants are 2-0 and Taylor is as big, bad and brutal as ever. The Rams are 1-1 and Irv Eatman isn't Gerald Perry.

Why should the Rams think they can beat the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday after losing to them, 40-17, earlier this season? "Believe it or not, I don't see them as being that much better than us," said Irv Eatman, Ram offensive tackle. "They may very well be a better team than us, I will concede that. But being a better team and outplaying us on Sunday are two entirely different things. "I look at film of our game with them last time and it doesn't look like a 40-17 game.

Ram executives weren't talking Friday, but free agent offensive tackle Irv Eatman says he will leave the Jets to play for the Rams this season. "We've basically agreed to a contract with the Rams and my attorney is reviewing the language in it," said Eatman by telephone from his home in Atlanta. "I want to play for the Rams and it's going to get done. "I'm sure I will be a Ram by the end of the weekend. I'm really, really happy with this opportunity."

Boy, just try to compliment those New Orleans linebackers. Tell them they're great. Tell them they dominate. Tell them they're the premier unit in the NFL. They're liable to tell you off. After spending a good portion of the day in Jim Everett's face, Saint linebacker Renaldo Turnbull tried to share the credit. Sure, the Saints have quality linebackers, but Turnbull and Co. would rather bury the praise as they did the Rams on Sunday.

The Rams, desperate for a starting tackle after Gerald Perry's defection to the Raiders, have made a strong pitch for the New York Jets' Irv Eatman. Eatman, who played four years at UCLA before moving on to the USFL and NFL, toured Rams Park on Thursday and underwent a physical examination. "It would be poetic justice," Eatman said, "to come back where it really all began." The Rams contacted Eatman's agent Tuesday when it became apparent that Perry was going elsewhere.

For a team with an empty win column, the New York Jets sure know how to fill up the joint with tough talk. Much of it comes from Bruce Coslet, he of the bold prediction and the "we're-pretty-damn-good" statement. Some of his players, when properly motivated, also can provide catchy sound bites. Take Irv Eatman, the Jets' right tackle.
