Random Ramsdom, 6/19

Have a look at the best links of the day! Los Angeles Rams trading with the New England Patriots? | Rams Wire Cam DaSilva proposes a potential trade between the two teams from Superbowl 53. The Rams would be sending TE Tyler Higbee to the Patriots, in return for a player at a position of need or more likely, a draft pick. Would this make sense for the Rams? Maybe, but the payoff likely isn’t worth it Ranking the six best safeties in the NFC West | Rams Wire Both John Johnson III and Eric Weddle land in the top-2 of Cam’s safety rankings within the NFC West Why Aaron Donald is the best...

Aaron Donald 2019 NFL MVP?

Aaron Donald 2019 NFL MVP?

Could Aaron Donald be the first defender since 1986 to win the MVP title? Adam Schein of NFL.com released his shortlist of nine NFL players who’re his favorites to win the MVP award in the 2019 season. In non-surprising fashion, eight of the nine choices represented on the list are offensive players — six quarterbacks, two running backs — with only one defender making the list. Los Angeles Rams’ defensive tackle Aaron Donald is the only defensive talent to make the list, and although it doesn’t seem very fair, it’s likely the way the awards shake out when it comes to the MVP...

Rams Rewind: The game in 2015 that fooled us all

Rams Rewind: The game in 2015 that fooled us all

There are 11 Sundays until the 2019 NFL season. Let’s remember some Rams games to pass the time. Before the Los Angeles Rams became a Super Bowl contender, they were a sub-average team masquerading as a serious playoff contender. Year after year under Head Coach Jeff Fisher, the Rams were given the “on the bubble” preseason rank and year after year, idiots like me thought, “This is it, baby. This is the year the Rams make the playoffs.” The Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 was a game that completely put me over the edge on this new Rams team, one that made a...

Roster preview: Colburn faces uphill battle

Roster preview: Colburn faces uphill battle

Rams running backs not named Todd Gurley are just seeking opportunity. Former Demon Deacon Colburn likely won’t find much. Los Angeles Rams running backs not named Todd Gurley hope to take advantage of the weird situation the Rams are dealing with heading into 2019 atop their running back depth chart. In order to hedge their risk, the Rams selected RB Darrell Henderson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft and matched a two-year offer sheet for RB Malcolm Brown. Now, rookie undrafted free agent RB Matt Colburn looks to try and make his mark in camp and the preseason. On the Rams with...

2020 mock has Rams beefing up through two rounds

2020 mock has Rams beefing up through two rounds

A 2020 mock? In June?! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! It’s the middle of June. We’ve got more than a month until we get to training camp. So it’s a perfect time for a mock draft! Thankfully, that’s exactly what Luke Easterling dropped over at the Touchdown Wire today with a two-round effort that offers a nice baseline well ahead of the 2019 college season. Easterling avoids the early conventional wisdom by not having Alabama Crimson Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa as the #1 overall pick though he does have him as the first QB off the board at #3. No, Easterling has Ohio State Buckeyes EDGE Chase Young...

Gurley’s trainer confirms “arthritic component to his knee”

Gurley’s trainer confirms “arthritic component to his knee”

Ok then. Per CBS Sports’ Dave Richard: Todd Gurley’s trainer Travelle Gaines confirmed to CBS Sports that his client is dealing with an “arthritic component to his knee,” but stressed that Gurley will be ready for the 2019 season. ”Everybody knew when Todd came out of Georgia that there would be some kind of arthritic component to his knee, which is part of every surgery whether it’s a shoulder, a knee, an ankle,” Gaines said late last week. “He’s now at the year-five mark, all we’re doing is managing that. If we can pound him less in the offseason while keeping his...

PFF: McVay “needs to show evolution of his scheme”

PFF: McVay “needs to show evolution of his scheme”

Year 3 for the wunderkind portends to be a major one. Today’s edition of Football Morning in America over at Pro Football Talk is an absolutely fascinating read. It’s also a reminder of how far football media has come in the last decade. You’ve got an established media member, Peter King, with a running blog on a major blog site, PFT, that he’s giving out to be guest-hosted by an advanced analytics site in PFF. This would have been unimaginable a decade ago. PFF founder Neil Hornsby even addressed this in the middle of the piece: Back then we were in a time when establishing the...

Roster preview: Wolford has everything in front of him

Roster preview: Wolford has everything in front of him

Let’s begin with the Rams’ quarterback. No, not that one. Much of the Los Angeles Rams’ 2019 season will come down to the play at the quarterback position. Nobody expects that to come down to QB John Wolford. That’s not to say the Ed Sheeran lookalike’s story is over. Anything but. The quarterback position is valuable enough and volatile enough to make the unthinkable legitimate. But for Wolford to make an NFL roster in 2019, it’s going to require the unthinkable. Roster Battle Unfortunately for Wolford, this aspect is inapplicable here. There is no battle. Jared Goff is the...

Welcome to the minority

Welcome to the minority

If you’re reading this, you’re not alone. But barely. Happy Father’s Day, fellow dads. We’re not exactly an exclusive club. According to the U.S. Census, about 72 million men in the United States are fathers which is about 60% of all adult men in the country. Even then, the role of being a father is changing quite drastically from recent decades. So it’s a great time to be a dad and be able to share that experience with other dads even if we’re less than a quarter of the population of the country. Kinda like being a Los Angeles Rams fan. Or an NFL fan at this time of the...

Two reasons why there won’t be a Goff deal in 2019

Two reasons why there won’t be a Goff deal in 2019

There’s a good chance that the two things delaying a deal have nothing to do with Goff’s performance. It’s been a wild couple of weeks for the potential upcoming extension for Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff. Things kicked off about three weeks ago when Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggested Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was more certain to get an extension and that Florio “would not be surprised if Goff doesn’t get a second contract with the Rams.” That speculation floated around for about a week until the Philadelphia Eagles extended QB Carson Wentz at the end of...

Despite some key losses on the offensive line, the talent around Goff in 2019 looks to be among the NFL’s best.

Only one Rams OL makes Athlon’s rankings

It’s time to give some love to the beefy boys on the front line. When looking at the NFL’s best, how did the LA Rams fare? Athlon Sports just released their ranking of the top 20 offensive linemen in the NFL at each line position, and it puts the depth of the Los Angeles Rams’ O-line in perspective. It probably isn’t too much of a shocker that Ol’ AW, LT Andrew Whitworth, ranked #3 among the tackles in the league. Man, that free-agent signing a couple years ago was clutch — the dude has delivered and then some: He must be drinking from the Tom Brady Fountain of Youth. Still...
