Cowherd with his first Herd Hierarchy this morning, accounting for all the off-season moves (coaching, FA and draft).

Rams at #8, SF at#6 and SEA at #4.

What did Sheattle do that’s so great? I think his homerism is showing. Ditto for the Niners. They drafted an unproven rookie QB. How does that stack up against the Rams getting Stafford?

I guess losing JJ and Hill can be a detraction. They will be replaced by players that haven’t started a full season. But again where were the Niners and Seahawks upgrades that put them so high?

I think he pointed out some improvements but mostly they finished two games ahead so it makes sense. For the Niners he pointed out their big upgrades to the OLine and adding the RB. They get back Jimmy, Kittle and Bosa added to their free agency and draft that makes them better.

We all know there are valid concerns with the Rams. He points out the loss of Hill, JJ calling the plays is gone and our center with no visible replacement. He has his concerns and mapped them out. I’ll look on YouTube later to see if he posts the video.

Yeah, his biggest issue appeared to be the personnel losses more than what they didn't add.

Video still isn't available, btw.

We go thru this every year. It's no surprise.
And every year the Rams' FA losses/traded/cut players etc amounts to negligible. I mean really, Rodger Saffold is IMO the only loss that has had any significant negative impact in the last several years.

I like Cowherd, but the media does what they do. I listen to alot of national and local sports talk radio, and SF is the media focus right now. Trey Lance has been getting more pub than the "sure fire once in a generation talent #1 overall pick," Trevor Lawrence.

If you want to see where the respect really lies then look at what Vegas thinks. None of these talking heads have to put their money where their mouths are.

Last I checked, Vegas had the Rams as clear favourites for the division.

There's a simple explanation for why other teams may be rated as having better offseasons. Rams didn't have much to work with.

Basically, almost no salary cap space to sign free agents. We got one, DSJ, and lost about ten.

Only one draft pick that could maybe be called high but was actually in the lower third of the second round and outside the top 50.

This was not a lot of capital to play with.

He emphasized the addition of Gerald Everett as a big move.

Seattle had 3 draft picks and Cowherd cites the adding of Gerald Everett as a "big addition"

Plz

He also downgraded GB to tenth because of the Rogers tension. Said any team with such issues & offseason noise, has to be downgraded, yet he ignored Russ's issues with Seattle & Carroll.

I'm not defending anything Cowherd said or any aspect of Seattle's offseason.

We clearly showed we were better than Seattle last year.

Niners being that high is a hot take. They have the worst QB in the division, and Alex Mack isn't what he used to be. I'm not sure how much they improved the OL.

Saleh was a huge loss too. Their defense will probably still be good, and overall I think they're a playoff team - but we're much better than them.

Only team on our level IMO is Tampa
