Opposing View: Seahawks HC Pete Carroll keyed in on Rams offense | Rams Official

Pete Carroll stopped chewing gum long enough to uncork a few hot takes, such as “they’re really on it,” as he discussed the Rams’ early season success. He then proceeded to insert a fresh piece of gum in his mouth and winked several times.

Michael Brockers wants everyone to ‘stop crowning’ the Rams | RamsWire

Brockers went on to add “...except the guys over at TST. They can crown us all they like, because they clearly don’t know what they’re talking about.” Seriously, though, it’s good to hear a veteran reiterate humility in the midst of all the hype.

In the “what have you done for me lately” column, this list didn’t even include Todd Gurley, who’s on pace to (slightly) outperform his 2017 OPOY season. The Rams received some nice honorable mentions, too. Say what you will about PFF, I’d be hard-pressed to argue with any of these selections.

Jared Goff and company will take on the “Legion Of Whom?” on Sunday. Also: when we sweep them in LA, can someone break out a “Legion Of Broom” sign? Thanks.

Donald, Rams D-line want to keep up the pressure on Wilson | AP

Throughout his career, Aaron Donald has owned Russell Wilson, but he’s not taking the Seahawks QB lightly. Hopefully the 4th quarter sack attack on display against Minnesota will carry over to Century Link this Sunday.

Rams’ versatile defensive front hungry for more sacks after a ‘break-the-dam’ game | OC Register

Rich Hammond with more on the Rams’ D-Line and their unusual versatility. There’s also the general sense that the unit may have just started to gel last week and communication is improving, which may not bode well for the SeaChickens.
