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...
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.
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...
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...
Looking at this roster, it is very cool to see that almost all of our starters are guys that were drafted or picked up as undrafted free agents by the rams, not a lot of teams are built like that but I love how ours is. I think these guys are really coming together and maturing together definitely helps.
DEFENSE: Quinn, Brockers, Donald, Ogletree, Truu, Gaines, Joyner, Roberson, Mcdonald, Alexander, Cody Davis, all of these guys have only played for the rams.
OFFENSE: Goff, Gurley, Cunningham, Austin, Quick, Cooper, Thomas, Kendricks, Higbee, G-Rob, Havenstein, Brown, Saffold , all of these guys have only played for the rams.
Not too long ago the rams were always a bunch of guys put together that didn't jell, or a bunch of young guys that didn't work out. Since Fisher and Snead took over this team has been built the right way and has a lot of young building blocks . Seasons almost here and I'm getting pumped !! if the young guys perform to their talent level this team has a...
Well, being a night owl on the West coast i'm thinking i'll just stay up all night for this one if i can.
It's time to end the 2 game skid and get to 4-3. Rams will still be sitting firmly in the thick of the race if we can get it done today.
Quick thoughts: Defense has to be awake, prepared and schemed. Undermanned today...less pass rush and cover corner. I don't like the idea of another shootout which it could very well become.
What a great day for #30 to go off and dominate right? Let it be so.
Yeah, I was only half joking so don't let me down more posts here than a potential "Vent" thread. In the first half, Jared Goff has thrown 3 TD's, and Case Keenum is now making vacation plans, cuz he'll never be the Rams starter again (STAY HEALTHY JARED!).
While I am typing this, Ingram just ran like 60 plus yards, WTH?
Anyway, I have not been this happy about a Rams QB since Mark Bulger, and hopefully he is much better than Bulger. Those intermediate throws are so good, unlike the ducks Case throws. Since we are down 2 TD's again, looks like the kid may get 5 TD's today in a loss (hope not), but whatever...The future is bright because it looks like we have the most important piece on the team now, and the draft cost was worth it.
And what potential HC candidate wouldn't want Goff, Gurley, Donald, and LA?
This game at Detroit probably and very likely will determine if the 2016 Rams are able to win more than 7 or 8 games.
History doesn't lie and when we ignore it, the same things almost always happen again. There is a trending truth about Jeff Fisher's Rams teams with a telling story about them starting 3-3.
With the usual common issues on offense, this 2016 Rams 3-2 team better not become another 3-3 Fisher team.
Many Rams fans might balk at the significance and impact that this game has next Sunday, but I believe this is coach Fisher's most important game since being hired as the head coach.
Do not let this team Fall to 3-3 Jeff Fisher. History doesn't favor your teams starting 3-3 and this 2016 team is not protected from your past. It is a different team but there are too many of the same issues that wiped out your other 3-3 teams.
Fisher has started the season 3-3 three different times as head coach of the Rams and his current team is 3-2 but on the...
Tom Brady's four-game suspension upheld
11:46 AM ET
- ESPN.com news services
A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game Deflategate suspension imposed by the NFL, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union.
"We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York.
The decision by a three-judge panel...
