KhaDarel Hodge promoted to 53-man

Everyone’s favorite preseason wideout is on the active roster now. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Rams tinkered a bit with the back end of their roster. First, they waived QB Brandon Allen and dropped QB Luis Perez and TE Temarrick Hemingway from the practice squad. They also worked out three players in G Ian Silberman, OT David Steinmetz and OT Darrell Williams. Then, they waived S Isaiah Johnson and added OT Darrell Williams, Jr. to fill one of those practice squad spots. Today, we got our answer on the open spot on the 53-man roster as well as the other practice squad spot though now...

Blythe v. Brown

Blythe v. Brown

And it’s not as easy as many are making it out to be. The Los Angeles Rams signed OL Austin Blythe in May of 2017. And through organized team activities and minicamp and the 2017 preseason, he remained a backup. RG Jamon Brown, though, started. Sandwiched between C John Sullivan and RT Rob Havenstein, Brown started every game including the Week 17 game in which the other four offensive line starters sat out. I think it’s fair to suggest then that the coaching staff preferred Brown to the backup options. For whatever reason, and there could have been many. This year, Brown has missed the...

As for the rest of the West, here’s what they’ve got cooking this weekend: 49ers (1-1) at Chiefs (2-0) Perhaps no NFC West team has a more difficult slate to start the season than the San Francisco 49ers. They opened their season in...

Five Chargers to watch

Five Chargers to watch

The “Fight for LA” gets an early matchup with two teams considered to be strong contenders this season. The “Fight for LA” begins as the Los Angeles Rams host the Chargers. With both teams entering the season on paper to being contenders this year, the Rams enter with a 2-0 record while the Chargers come with a 1-1 after being victimized by Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes in Week 1. With my favorite Charger out in this matchup (get well soon Joey Bosa), here are five other Chargers that the Rams are likely to key on. WR Keenan Allen Arguably the best offensive player, Allen has started...

Rams-Cardinals: The Professor’s review

Rams-Cardinals: The Professor’s review

Dominance. “This was my kind of game” The Los Angeles Rams came out in the home opener and dominated the Arizona Cardinals. When the Rams play like that, I harken back the sixties and to what my father would say at halftime. “If the Cardinals don’t score at halftime and the Rams put up another touchdown in the 3rd quarter, this will be my kind of game.” I would look at him and ask, “Why?” His reply, “We can leave and beat the traffic” Well, the game played itself out just like my father wanted, but I’m not my father when it comes to my Rams. I’ll stay to the very end...
