There is seemingly some truth to it (although I think more on the side of the winning team than the losing team) and after the Rams performance I expect to hear a lot of that kind of chatter from talking heads with space to fill and clicks totals to reach. Especially if they lose in Week One or Two. Which will also bring up the New Orleans game too and the "well they shouldn't have been there" chatter.
But for me..........I'm not that concerned about it with this team for a few reasons.
It's a young team, and so I sense that they are disappointed, but will leave it in the rear view mirror.
McVay has a knack, in part because of his age, of being able to effectively communicate with players so IMO he will keep them focused week to week. I'd be willing to be that he won't even allow for and talk about the game, and if comes up he'll shoot it right down.
Another reason is Wade Phillips. He's been around a LONG time to say the least and I think he will be a steadying force....
There is a lot of honor going on in that draft room (see the vids of how Rams include everyone in the process---position coaches et al)....and 'niceness' maybe, too.
REally the Rams culture all changed with McVay, not the the owner and not the GM.
Same with Pats, the owner is a guy who knows when to say 'yes' to Belliboy, and that is it.
The owner doesn't have to have class, or honor or that stuff, the coach has to--and McVay has
that in spades! THe owner only has to honor what he says...which is not so hard for most of them.
With all the 'nice' guy stuff going on with the Rams towards the players, the staff is intentional, serious and joyful...all things that business can be.
The only change I see that McVay needs:
he has to become less glorifying of players---that will lead to his downfall. Fisher was a lapdog to lazy players like Jenkins....who after he left the Rams became the pro bowler he should have been with he Rams.
He is young and so it is ok to kiss the...
NFL draft grades 2019: Patriots' class among best, Giants' haul confounds
Time for my least favorite aspect of NFL draft season — the reactionary, postmortem grades NFL readership seems to demand the minute after Mr. Irrelevant has been announced.
PSA — this is a largely pointless drill, and a legitimate report card can't fairly be issued until 2022. But I'll play along and submit my annual, way-too-early, impromptu evaluations before all of these players have even set foot onto a pro practice field. Please note, I strive to assess each club's class holistically, assessing the players on merit...

#70 overall RB Memphis
Henderson became one of the top college running backs by the time he finished his three-year career with the Tigers. He was an Associated Press first-team All-American in 2018, finishing second in the country with 1,909 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on only 214 carries (8.9 average). The first-team All-American Athletic Conference performer also caught 19 passes for 295 yards (15.5 average) and three touchdowns in 13 starts (he sat out the team's bowl game to focus on the draft). Henderson also missed the team's 2017 bowl game due to injury but played in 13 games that year (10 starts) and led Memphis with 1,154 yards and nine touchdowns on just 130 carries (8.9 average) to garner second-team all-conference accolades. The 2014 Mississippi Gatorade High School Player of the Year (2,253 yards, 32 TD) played in all 13 games with six starts as a true freshman (87-482-5.5, five TD rushing; 20-237-11.9, three TD receiving). He...
Hope I didn’t jump the gun, mods! As I wait here at my flight gate, I am scouring for Day 2 news. Here’s this tidbit, expect him to go early today. Maybe Cardinals? Will we see a run on cb’s subsequently, missing out on Greedy?
That means don't post things before they're announced on the TV or Radio!
Start off with some rumors and drama circulating today. Just glad I'm not a Redskins fan, say what you want of our owner at least he's not Dan Snyder! And yes I know there are smokescreens and unconfirmed "insider sources". Last time Snyder reportedly did this was when they traded with us to draft RG3.
The move comes as no surprise given Goff was the No. 1 overall pick in 2016 and was the Rams’ starting quarterback in Super Bowl LIII.
Goff is 24-7 over the past two seasons, with a 100.8 passer rating, after going 0-7 with a 63.6 passer rating as a rookie.
Through three seasons, Goff has passed for 9,581 yards and 65 touchdowns.
Jared Goff: Contract extension 'not on my mind at all'
Entering the final year of his rookie deal, former first-overall pick Jared Goff is in line for a mega-extension sometime in the next 23 months.
Despite the recent record-breaking deal handed out to division rival signal-caller Russell Wilson, the Los Angeles Rams quarterback said this week that he is not thinking about his contract situation as offseason workouts...
ESPN Field Gates reporting
From the article:
In advance of the free agency period opening next Wednesday, the Rams have kept one of the best pass rushers off the market by agreeing to terms on a new contract with outside linebacker Dante Fowler. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Cooper Kupp expected to be ready for Rams training camp
The Los Angeles Rams were dealt a significant blow in Week 10 last season when Cooper Kupp suffered a torn ACL. He missed the rest of the season and the playoffs, giving way to Josh Reynolds as a starter.
The Rams will be getting their top slot receiver back in 2019 and according to Sean McVay, Kupp will be back on the field in training camp. McVay said at the NFL combine Thursday that Kupp is expected to be ready for camp in July.
Despite only playing eight games last season, Kupp still finished fourth on the team in receiving yards (566), receptions (40) and tied for first...
Longest-tenured Ram Rodger Saffold on upcoming free agency: “I don’t think it’s any surprise that I want to be back.”
by Clarence Dennis
The Rams offensive line perhaps faces the most uncertainty of any position group entering the offseason as to who will or will not return for a 2019 run at returning to the Super Bowl.
Left guard Rodger Saffold joins aging offensive linemen in left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan in the upcoming uncertainty as he faces free agency after nine seasons with the club.
Saffold also joined Whitworth in picking up his first postseason win against the Cowboys in the Divisional...
Roger Saffold- We've all read the articles and know the story by now. He's said he wants to come back and feels he may have to take less here to do that from what he can get on the open market. IMO a must resign for 3 years.
LaMarcus Joyner- Past years franchise tag did little if anything to live up to that salary. In the past I was a big LMJ guy and loved his game. This season has brought this guy down to one word for me. Peace! Let him be overpaid by somebody else.
Ndomukong Suh- Was very lackluster during the regular season but was an absolute unit in the playoffs. While I'd like to have this guy back I just don't think we'll have the money for what he wants.
Dante Fowler Jr. - Guy enjoyed a rebirth for us and had some big moments in both the regular and post season. I for one would like to bring him back. It wouldn't break my heart if our top 3 Edge guys were him, Samson and Obo, we could always add another pick to it. Just not sure what kind of...
Fortunately, most of our roster comes back next year with the chance to replace a couple players who didn’t live up to expectations (Fowler, Joyner, Barron, etc).
I have a hard time believing the rams won’t get super aggressive and make some trades again, the fact that they were willing to trade for Mack after paying Donald’s tells you all you need to know, the rams are all in.
Our young team got the necessary expirance today, unfortunately we were on the wrong end of the game, but they will learn and come back, McVay is going to come back from this and learn, these guys are hungry. It’s going to be a long offseason but boy and I already looking forward to see what we do
