Where the hell is Joe?!

With 3k missing, I took on the challenge of showing the new kids on the block the ropes alone. Turns out it wasn’t much of a challenge at all, in fact they showed me the ropes as Joey Aucoin and Dylan Cardwell came on and killed it.

The guys were super prepared to drop some knowledge on the Los Angeles Rams and kept it fun-filled the entire time. We covered a lot on this week’s episode from Aaron Donald, Sammy Watkins, Tavon Austin, preseason game one, stock up stock down, and a whole slew of good listener questions.

We dove into a great discussion of does it make sense for HC Sean McVay to want to keep Austin around, and discussed this being his TRUE make or break season. He’s essentially playing for his future this season after the addition of Watkins.

We also had a great break down of the play of some of the players from the game Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys. We covered starters and the backups and just overall depth at certain positions. Also, have the Rams found a gem in the secondary in second-year UDFA CB Mike Jordan? He was really sticky in coverage and graded out as the best player on the field by PFF.
