Welcome to the 2018 NFL season, Los Angeles Rams fans. Every week we will give you an opportunity to shoot us questions about anything Rams related. We will then do our best to give you a sufficient answer for said questions.
That said.... Let’s jump right in.
Why do the rams keep Blake countess & Troy hill as our back ups, when they know and we all know they get burnt worse than janoris Jenkins playing vs Steve Smith, Dez Bryant or Golden tate???? When kayvon went down last year, both replacements got roasted multiple times... pic.twitter.com/jK3MnTucf7— RockStar Rams (@RockStar_Rams) September 3, 2018
Personally, I’m with you in regards to Blake Countess. I do take exception, however, with your assessment of Troy Hill. He was clutch for the Rams down the stretch, played well in their season finale against the San Francisco 49ers, and graded out well in the wild card game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Will we do better or worse then last season?— Carson Keller (@CoderCNK) September 3, 2018
I have them at 13-3, but don’t take my word for it. You can catch all the staff predictions here.
Why keep 4 RB's on the 53 when we could have kept another OLB that had some special teams value?— Chuck (@charliestymest) September 3, 2018
With Todd Gurley set to handle the majority of the carries and Malcolm Brown impressing in relief of Gurley last season, I can understand the logic here. Think back a few years though and you’ll remember Chase Reynolds. Reynolds was a stud for Special Teams coordinator John Fassel and made Pro Football Focus’ All-Pro team in 2014.
Maybe coach Bones sees something in Justin Davis or John Kelly. At this point, he’s earned the benefit of the doubt with those last 5 roster spots so I’m not going to question this decision too much.
