Sorry for the fast post but just wanted to start off everybody's morning tomorrow with a nice video to get you pumped!
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...
Lots of movement this week. Like....a crap ton.. But yea, it's deserving....Maybe..... Enjoy!!!!!! Or don't.... freak off!!!!
This woulda been posted last night but in my drunkin haze I forgot to make it public. My bad....
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.
Jameis and the Bucs sure looked ordinary against the Cardinals. After getting embarrassed you can bet they will be bringing some fire to this contest with the Rams. Jameis isn't afraid to sling the ball around - he will turn it over but he will also connect here and there. Doug Martin is gimpy but Charles Sims may be the more dangerous back. Mike Evans is blossoming into a star - he will need extra attention from our secondary.
Offensively, we obviously have to figure out how to score. We had our way with these guys in the ketchup and mustard game last year - and I'll bet most of them remember that. It would be nice to hear that the offense is making adjustments this week - whether that is from a coaching standpoint, a personnel standpoint, or both. This seems like the kind of game we ought to be able to win on the road - which makes me worried that we won't.
I just checked the Rams web site and he is in the 2nd position and moved Mannion to 3rd. I guess the kid is moving up. I know I heard Fish mention about the possibility of him moving behind Case. I guess this means he is progressing.
It would be nice to see him play his 1st game as well or better than Wentz did in Philly.
Okay, I've given it the 24-hour rule, albeit's been only about 19 hours. Starting to think about this Sunday's game. I know we are disappointed/ticked beyond certain words, but I want to focus on Sunday's game against Seattle. I hope the team, regardless of Fisher's apologetic reasoning, comes out with a sense of urgency and some anger. The only way to wash the bad taste of last night's game out of their mouth is to get back on the field and play. In all honesty, and it's not the "kool-aid" talking, I think we will see a much different team, especially on offense. The one thing I've seen, over the years, is when someone's pride is wounded, they normally come back with something to prove. I think the players know they laid a huge sh*t burger yesterday and their pride won't allow them to do it two games in a row. I really hope they will play with a bit of a chip on their shoulder (no pun intended).
Offense needs to set the tone on their first series and score a touchdown and...
Monday Night Countdown starts in 20 mins and a little more than 5 hours till game time and I can't wait. Beer is chillin, Brisket is in the crock pot, Beans are soakin and the Margarita machine is poised to begin making killer drinks and I have the rest of the day off......................NICE! Go Rams!
enjoy the game my fellow Ram Fans! Party time!Go Defense!
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...
Double edged sword here - I want to see Goff get plenty of work - and ideally that work would come with the 1s, but I don't want any of the 1s to risk injury.
Game 4 is desperation time and the last thing I want is for a key piece to get hurt because some bubble player on the other side is desperate to get noticed.
I don't want to see any of the 1s on defense - but with the roster already cut to 75 I'm not sure they will have much choice but to play some of them for some time.
On offense, I'm less concerned with Goff playing with the 1s at the skill positions and more concerned that he is adequately protected. How much of our starting O Line are we really going to risk though? I'm fine with Saffold not being dressed, for instance.
Tough balance to find this game.
At least the Vikings won't be playing with all kinds of emotion.
The Los Angeles Rams are signing veteran wide receiver Tavon Austin to a contract extension that will be announced Saturday night, according to league sources.
Austin is a multi-dimensional former first-round draft pick who was an All-American from West Virginia.
He was playing under a four-year, $12.751 million rookie deal that included a $7.653 million signing bonus.
Austin caught 52 passes for 473 yards and five touchdowns last season.
He rushed for 434 yards and four touchdowns.
He had a punt return for a touchdown too.
QUINN TO MAKE HIS DEBUT
Last year’s Week 9 contest at Minnesota was the first time he’d ever missed an NFL game due to injury. It was the first Rams’ game he didn’t start since 2012. And after he tried to be effective in a pass-rushing role against the Bears in Week 10, the Rams shut Quinn down as he underwent season-ending back surgery.
“It sucked,” Quinn said after Thursday’s practice. “But I mean, it’s just an unfortunate accident. It happened, you just have to overcome it. It’s in the past, leave it in the past and try to make something happen this year.”
That process has been well...
Rams to Take on Chiefs for 2nd Preseason Contest
After a rousing comeback win in their first preseason matchup, the Rams will be back in action on Saturday evening against the Chiefs (0-1).
The contest will feature the preseason debut of running back Todd Gurley, who was a healthy scratch last week against the Cowboys.
“I don’t know how much, but he’s going to play. Maybe a series, maybe two,” head coach Jeff Fisher said. “A couple carries, maybe some protection stuff and then get him out.”
Still recovering from his ACL tear in November 2014, Gurley did not take a snap during the 2015 preseason. But that did not stop him from becoming the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Nevertheless, Gurley sees value in August game reps.
“Obviously, practice is a lot...
Rams Set to Take On Cowboys for First Preseason Game
It is preseason, but NFL football in Los Angeles will kick off for the first time in two decades Saturday evening when the Rams take on the Cowboys.
Through about two weeks of training camp, Los Angeles has been making steady progress, particularly when it comes to the quarterback position. While Case Keenum will be the starter, No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff should get plenty of playing time in his first live NFL action.
“I feel good, I feel ready,” Goff said. “Obviously, [it’s] my first NFL game. I’m going to try and go out there and treat it like every other game I’ve ever played in my life, and have fun, execute, enjoy my time, and do the best I can.”
“We want him just to relax Saturday night,” offensive coordinator Rob Boras said....
My wife has got some video from yesterday & Saturday, I wil have her try to vet some video of GRob today, she got Goff yesterday. I won't be able to put them up on here til I get home Fri or Sat but maybe someone that knows what to look for will be able to get something out of it.
I'm in Rams shorts and a Tavon T-shirt, if any others make it out today. I've met some very cool fans at the last 2 practices and expect to today also.
