LA Rams: Hollins to IR, best free agent OLBs to keep an eye on

The LA Rams sat and did not react when the injury bug began to peck away at the running backs on the roster. Eventually, the LA Rams lost Cam Akers, Xavier Jones, and Raymond Calais to injury. Finally, the Rams pulled the trigger on a trade with the New England Patriots for veteran running back Sony Michel. Was it too reactionary, considering the Rams still had veteran running back Darrell Henderson?

LA Rams class of 2021 remain eerily quiet in 2021

The LA Rams made a number of interesting, if not downright shocking, moves in the 2021 NFL Draft when the team, facing a number of free-agent losses in 2022, instead focused their draft picks upon the one place that was bursting with depth and talent. The interesting part is that the draft picks seemed to imply that the Rams were unhappy with returning veterans from the 2020 roster. The shocking part is that few of the rookies selected were projected to be much of an impact in 2021.

Did the LA Rams just call up a diamond-in-the-rough RB?

The team had already exhausted the annual limit to OLB Justin Lawler last week. This week, the Rams will have used up Tyler Hall’s annual allotment.

How about we give LA Rams DC Raheem Morris his due?

The LA Rams just won their third consecutive game. That is something that the Rams could not do since the first three games of 2019. In terms of comparison, of this 2021 version to 2019? Don’t. They are not the least bit similar. The LA Rams have a far more explosive offense. And truth be told? I believe that this defense is a bit stingier as well.

Rams face critical test next week with Cardinals, Seahawks in 5-day span

The LA Rams’ reign in first place will only last as long as they can stand taller than Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson. The Rams have opened the season at 3-0 and they have a legitimate MVP candidate in Matthew Stafford, who leads the NFL in net and adjusted yards per pass attempt, while ranking second in passer rating and QBR, and he’s the only quarterback in the entire league who has started all three games but been sacked fewer than four times.

Los Angeles Rams 2021 Season Preview

The Los Angeles Rams are geared to kick off the 2021 NFL season with a facelift on offense while returning all but two starters on last season's No. 1 defensive unit.

3 surprise discoveries revealed during the LA Rams opening win

Okay. It’s that morning after, the Monday after football Sunday where we ponder about the football game. Perhaps you are asking yourself – what did we just see? Perhaps you are trying to tap the brakes today after an overly euphoric season opener. Maybe you see the LA Rams in a much more favorable light today? Perhaps you’ve talked yourself out of the warm fuzzy feeling, convincing yourself that the team was not as brilliant in the aftermath as the team appeared to be in the heat of the battle.

Matthew Stafford is LA Rams Week 3 secret weapon

The NFL has made it easier to pile up the passing yards. From protecting defenseless receivers to protecting the quarterback, professional football has installed a number of new regulations that have de-emphasized the running game and incentivized the passing game. What was once an eye-opening 3000+ passing yards type of league is not a ho-hum 4500+ passing yards type of league. And with a 17 game season for 2021, the lid may be taken off 5000 yards or even 6000 passing yards.

Thinking it’s time for the LA Rams to add a veteran running back

The LA Rams are down to two healthy running backs. Well, one healthy veteran running back, one rookie running back who is returning kickoffs, and featured running back Darrell Henderson who was feared to be injury-prone. In just two games, after just 29 rushes, Darrell Henderson is now… wait for it… injured.

5 takeaways from LA Rams second victory

The LA Rams compete in the very grueling and physical sport of professional football. And yet even as the team’s record improves to 2-0, the laundry list of ‘gotta fix that’ list seems to be growing, not shrinking. But to be fair, should it be shrinking just yet?. I mean,...

LA Rams Kenny Young: That one’ll cost you plenty

When the LA Rams defense emerged from the pile after stopping the Indianapolis Colts on first-down and goal to go from the LA Rams three-yard line, inside linebacker Kenny Young was visibly upset. The Rams had actually stuffed Colts running back Jonathan Taylor for a one-yard loss, another huge goal-line stand for the Rams defense.

LA Rams: Still working on dollars and sense to sign a player?

The LA Rams raised some eyebrows today as ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry reported that the team has created salary cap space by restructuring the contract of veteran tight end Tyler Higbee. The Rams typically rework their finances at this time of the year in the interest of locking up vital veterans to long-term contract extensions. A year ago, the Rams employed that strategy to extend DB Jalen Ramsey, WR Cooper Kupp, and WR Robert Woods to long-term deals.

LA Rams open with stop, Atwell punt return, and inaccurate Stafford

The LA Rams have wanted to see what quarterback Matthew Stafford could do in a high-profile game. Not much was expected from the defense, almost nothing was expected from special teams, but all expectations pointed to the LA Rams offense and the fact that their new quarterback is exceeding the already lofty expectations.
