Win, lose or draw, the RAMS will be the most badass team in the league in 2016.
I know what you are thinking. "The RAMS are ALWAYS the most badass!" And you are correct. This years team however is burning high-octane awesome sauce and cranking their badassery up to E-LEV-N.
Here are 16 reasons why every other team in the NFL just kinda sucks compared to the 2016 Los Angeles RAMS.
16 - Johnny freaking Hekker.
15 - Best looking GM/QB duo in the league. No other team packs a 1-2 punch of stonecold ladykillers like Les "McConaughey" Snead and Jared "Gosling" Goff. And as far as HCs go, I can almost smell Jeff "Ron Swanson" Fishers raw testosterone-pipe tobacco-grizzly musk all the way back here in Missouri.
14 - They are young, hungry and mean.
Under Fisher, the Rams make two things: mistakes and Seahawks fans cry like the little whining pansies they are. I expect fewer mistakes and more tears this year.
13 - Seriously, those frappuccino sippin' hipsters in the Pacific Northwest are...

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.

This is a very big game.
Arizona got handled in their last game. They are 1-2 and they haven't looked like they fit the big britches that the national media made for them in the pre season.
Its always fun watching these teams play one another - and right now, there isn't a team I'd like to beat more than the Arizona Cardinals.
Looking forward to seeing updates on the status of Evan Mathis and Michael Floyd through the week. I want to beat them at their best and all - but really, I just want to beat them.
We need to get to Palmer early and often - he needs to feel like he is too old for the NFL by midway thru the first quarter. David Johnson needs to be contained at all costs.
These guys are beatable and if the Rams want to be for real this year - they have to show up for games like this.
I'm looking for Gurley to really get going this week.
_"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....
First things first, I am a Quick apologist. I didn't love the pick when it was made, but, I certainly saw the upside.
Now that Cook has gone Quick has become the symbol/target of the Rams enemic offense.
He has had several drops this preseason but I think there was little chance he was going to be cut. Rookie WR take time to get up to speed. Maybe he is just here until other guys are healthy, but, I sort of doubt that.
I went back to 2014 because that was the last time Quick got meaningful time.
He had 25 catches (39 targets) and 1 drop along with 3 TDs.
Britt had 48 catches (84 targets) with 2 drops.
Austin had 31 catches (41 targets) with 3 drops.
Quick 4% drop rate (1 TD/8.3 catches)
Britt 4% drop rate (1 TD/16 catches)
Austin 9.8% drop rate (0 TDs)
By comparison a physically similar receiver Malcolm Floyd had 4 drops with 47 catches (99 targets), a drop rate of 8.5% drop rate.
A guy that some were clamoring to sign to replace Quick, Cecil Shorts had 5 drops with...
2017 LA Rams prepare for "The Back 9"
The Los Angeles Rams rolled into their bye week after sinking a "hole in one" when they shut out the Arizona Cardinals 38-0 in London. They also sent a message to a few more of their doubters in the NFL hierarchy. They now begin their quest to finish strong on the back 9 of their regular season schedule.
After winning 5 of their first 7 games, these 2017 Rams have shown resilience, character, unity and seem to have taken on the personality of their new coaching staff. You can see it with this years team by their confidence, swagger and the composure they've displayed during periods of adversity in many of their games prior to the bye week.
Led by first year head coach "offensive magician" Sean McVay and the ageless "defensive wizard" Wade Phillips, the personnel on this...
Will he be like Jeff Fisher and focus on players that have only been property of the Washington Redskins? Will he be like Milquetoast Linehan and just do whatever his defensive coordinator tells him to do or will he be like Steve Spagnuolo and go for one year rentals on players that best days are behind them?
Hopefully none of the above, but if the Rams start looking like Redskin West I’m going to be somewhat concerned. I don’t mind maybe one or two signings, but let’s hope unlike under past regimes the Wunderkind can showcase he is truly beyond his years to not focus on players that are (FOSM) Friends of Sean McVay.
This is also an area where General Manager Les Snead needs to stand up and showcase he’s improved in this area. If the Rams let Trumaine Johnson walk, they will need to sign a significant Cornerback a wide receiver and an offensive lineman and the Rams cannot afford to whiff in free agency like they did time and time again under Jeff Fisher Kenny Britt & Williams...
Redskins vs Rams Prediction Thread: Possible Gauntlet March?
Sunday, the Redskins head to Los Angeles to take on a Rams team that obliterated the Colts in week 1.
Let's face it; we all expected to see a crisp, sharp, attentive group of players on the field this past weekend, polished, on the edge of being in mid-season form.
That didn't quite happen.
Luckily for me, I was doing repairs on my garage roof thanks to hurricane Harvey and didn't get to see the actual game, but I managed to catch some highlights against an Eagles team that was kinda in the same boat as we are. Both teams, at times, looked good, but only for a bit, then the miscues, stupid penalties, and flat out unenthusiastic efforts put out on the field.
The Redskins briefly led the game, but it seemed the Eagles were more hungry for the W than the Redskins were, and after the whatever...
I hope your transition to LA has been ok for your fan base. We know first hand how that could have gone. Luckily, we had a billionaire invest a ton of money into our sports/city.
As you know, we shut out the Patriots on the road, the first team since 1993 to do so.
This is after totally dismantling the Cardinals on every phase. The Bills are clicking on all cylinders and are getting healthy. We get Marcell Dareus and Seantrel Henderson (6th OL/swing tackle) back against the Rams.
Our only injuries heading into the game are Sammy Watkins (IR), Reggie Ragland our second round pick (IR), and first round pick Shaq Lawson (back week 7). We expect the entirety of our roster to play except those three.
Outside of the Thursday Night explosion by the Jets (played their super bowl as Rex as tauanted Ryan Fitzpatrick for like 10 years), we have only allowed 10.6 points per game, and those three opponents are 7-5 (with two of those loses being from us).
Rex will ALWAYS play...

Pharoh Cooper worked with the first-team offense Friday
By: Jeff Smith
If you were a pre-draft believer in former South Carolina wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, you might be getting closer to being able to pat yourself on the back. When the Los Angeles Rams drafted Cooper in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, it was a pick surrounded by excitement. Apparently, it hasn’t taken much time for Cooper to make his presence felt with the team either.
Via Myles Simmons of the team’s official website:
Myles Simmons @MylesASimmons
It can be. But I’ve gotta say, I’ve been really impressed with Cooper this week. He got snaps with 1s today, too.
This means it’s taken a total of just three days for Cooper to impress the coaches enough for him to earn some time with the first-team offense. While it’s somewhat...
Rejoice friends!!! Many of us, including myself, wanted this one bad.
