Game Preview: Rams Take on Cowboys in Preseason Opener
The NFL preseason has officially arrived. The Rams will be back at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday to take on the Cowboys in their preseason opener for the second straight year.
Following the first two weeks of training camp at the team’s summer home of UC Irvine, the Rams will begin a preseason slate of games that also includes two AFC West opponents in the Raiders and Chargers, as well as a matchup with the...
_"2017 Rams Offensive Personnel"
With only days to go until the Rams officially report to their 2017 training camp, I'm releasing this years
"all in one stop" offensive personnel presentation. (A total of 42 players counting 3 on special teams)
Everyone knows the current roster is subject to change in the coming days and weeks leading up to the 2017 season opener. I have listed all of the the current "offensive players" currently on the 90 man roster.
For what ever the miscellaneous reasons were over the past 5 seasons, the Rams offensive rankings under the previous coaching regime were rather "elementary" and the product on the field rarely looked like it belonged in today's NFL.
In the previous five seasons the Rams rankings in "total yards" per game was 22nd in 2012, 30th in 2013, 27th in 2014, 32nd in 2015 and 32nd in 2016....
If you plan to attend training camp, we have created an event for coordination of members who would like to potentially meet others.
I know, it's the offseason and we get lots of silly threads. I wasn't sure where to put this post - as most of the threads are related to offense.
That being said, I know that in the past years under Fisher we ran a bend but don't break defense. A defense that often leads to your D being left on the field for longer periods, but is hoping for opportune takeaways as a result.
To my knowledge Wade Phillips doesn't have this bend but don't break philosophy. How do you think that will affect our D? How about our O with more potential possessions? Tavon getting more PR opportunities?
I see our D as being able to hold up through a game a bit better. If we aren't getting dragged on these 80 yard drives only to hold them to a field goal. I'd have to think our players will have more energy.
Anyway, what do you all think?
The more I pondered this question, the more names kept popping up, tbh.
Jared Goff. An obvious choice. Maybe THE choice.
Todd Gurley. Surely a top candidate,
Robert Woods. The Buffalo O was smothering him, imo. Might thrive in this McVay O environment. I sure think he will.
Tyler Higbee. Another guy that stands to benefit tremendously from McVay's TE oriented O since Kendricks is no longer around. Could jump from obscurity to a star this year.
Nelson Spruce. How to top UDFA with one preseason game appearance to possible starting contributor?
Connor Barwin. This could resurrect his career under Wade once again. How's that for dramatic benefit?
Robert Quinn. New DC, new position. New health? Could be an explosive year for Quinn. If healthy, look out!
Kayvon Webster. Finally an opportunity to start. That's some serious benefit, huh?
Nickell Robey-Coleman. Same as Webster. Finally an opportunity to start.
Lamarcus Joyner. Some have said that this might allow...
PFT preseason power rankings No. 32: New York Jets
Posted by Mike Florio on July 9, 2017
With training camps still a couple of weeks away and (fortunately) not many arrests or other misdeeds to fill the slow time, there’s a void that needs to be filled. So we’ll fill it with a look at each of the NFL’s franchises, ranked bottom to top based on where they’re currently perceived to be in relation to their 31 competitors at this stage of the season.
Feel free to complain in the comment about whether a team is ranked too high or too low. The first team could be ranked no lower; we start with the bottom of the barrel and dig upward.
Someone has to be last at the start of the season, and the Jets seem to be determined to be last at the end of...
Rams surely want to “pay the man”; the challenge is coming up with the right number
Posted by Mike Florio on July 7, 2017, 2:29 PM EDT
It’s easy for people like Rams defensive lineman Michael Brockers to tell his team to “pay the man” in reference to defensive tackle Aaron Donald. It’s much harder to determine the right dollars and structure of the deal.
The problem arises in large part from the fact that the Donald has two years left on his rookie deal. Which means that the Rams would be assuming the injury risk from Donald for the next 32 regular-season games, plus any postseason games the Rams may play (stop laughing).
It’s one thing for a team to assume the injury risk for a quarterback or a receiver or a cornerback. Linemen are constantly stuck in a scrum of bodies that may or may not result in a...
Sean McVay on Jared Goff, Plans For The Rams & More
LA Rams’ Head Coach Sean McVay joins the Rich Eisen Show to talk about Jared Goff, Plans For The Rams and Much More.
Watch McVay Talk Rams with Eisen
Ok, I scrolled through 4 pages of archives and did not see this notice,so here it is. Amazon Prime will start a series on last years LA Ram season on June 30th. It looks like a darker next part of the story after Hard Knocks, that goes through a last team meeting by Jeff Fisher telling the team that he was fired. They showed footage of McVay, although I don't know how much there is of that, or whether it's worth signing up for Amazon Prime to see this series.
I was for firing Fisher when it happened, but seeing the aftermath kind of hits you where you live. Seeing Fish humbled like that made me feel for him.

Rams DE Robert Quinn had his right hand bandaged today and did not participate in practice. Sean McVay said he had "a minor procedure" and that he should be ready to go for the start of training camp. LB Mark Barron, RB Lance Dunbar, WR Tavon Austin and CB EJ Gaines also did not practice. SS Maurice Alexander (hip) did, but not in 11-on-11 drills.
I know he doesn't have a say so but that must mean Thomas getting a lot of snaps

24 Hours With ... Sean McVay
He may be the youngest coach in NFL history, but the Rams’ new head man is in unquestioned command of his team. Word for the wise—no daydreaming in meetings!
By Andy Benoit
After seven years in Washington, the last three as Jay Gruden’s offensive coordinator, a soon-to-be 31-year-old Sean McVay took over the Los Angeles Rams in January, becoming the youngest head coach in NFL history (modern era).
It’s been a whirlwind first off-season, though if you observe McVay running the team, you’d think he’s been at it for a decade. In May, during the Rams’ third OTA session (which meant full days with the players and live practices), McVay welcomed us behind the curtain.

Andrew Whitworth brings protective services to Rams
By Gary Klein
During the last eight of his 11 seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, Andrew Whitworth played left tackle and protected a couple of very good quarterbacks.
With Whitworth minding their blind side, Carson Palmer and Andy Dalton each led the Bengals to the playoffs.
So it was no surprise in March when the Rams and new coach Sean McVay pursued the three-time Pro Bowl selection, and guaranteed him a handsome sum, to protect quarterback Jared Goff, the top pick in the 2016 draft.
Whitworth already sees traits that Goff shares with his previous high-profile teammates, especially the more “laid back” Palmer.
“It’s just getting him to let it out and be confident and be assertive and run the show,” Whitworth said of Goff, adding, “We all go as far as the quarterback goes and it’s our job to make his job easier.”
The Rams signed the 6-foot-7, 333-pound Whitworth to keep Goff upright, provide team leadership and...
Robert Woods is looking out for No. 1 receiver role
Rams wide receiver Robert Woods participates in organized team activities last week in Thousand Oaks. (Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times)
By Gary Klein
In a recent ceremony at his old high school, legendary status was bestowed upon Robert Woods.
Gardena Serra made the new Rams receiver the first recipient of “Serra Legend” recognition. In honor of his performance on the field, and the character he displays on and off it, a patch bearing Woods’ name will adorn the jerseys of all future players who wear No. 2 for the Cavaliers.
The Rams were not in search of a legend this offseason when they wooed Woods home with a five-year, $34-million free-agent contract.
New coach Sean McVay wanted a dependable, sure-handed route runner, a respected veteran to set an example for younger players in the locker room.
Woods, however, insists he can be more.
Los Angeles Rams Mobile: Rookie Profile: Cooper Kupp
He says all the right things that's for sure. I also fell in love a bit more, he's watching tape of Ike in this clip if you watch closely. I don't see how this guy isn't ready to contribute mentally on day one.
If he can get open against Tru in camp, we might have found a gem.
Just taking a stab at it. No doubt either a UFDA or a camp cut from another team moves up, but as of today ...
