Had the news that pass interference calls and non-calls can be reviewed been dropped a few months ago, the Rams Super Bowl run could’ve been drastically changed. Thats right, the competition committee acknowledged that they missed one when Brandin Cooks was interfered with late in the game, and the Rams missed a chance to have the ball on the 1 in a first a goal situation. Oddly enough, Rams fans never took this missed call to congress.
The writing has been on the wall for a while, but Rams GM Les Snead has acknowledged that cap restraints will prevent the Rams from retaining the services of DL Ndamukong Suh. The Rams used Suh in a variety of ways, with Suh’s greatest impact taking place during the Rams playoff run that culminated in a Super Bowl loss despite a very strong defensive effort.
The Rams continue to try to capitalize on the window of opportunity created by Jared Goff’s rookie deal. Though an extension seems likely, the Rams apparently aren’t rushing things on the front. Last season Goff continued to show improvement and was arguably the Rams offensive MVP, but also had a late season rough patch and seemed puzzled by the Patriots defense in the Super Bowl.
Before emerging as a dominant group late in the season and through the postseason, the Rams defense had a mostly inconsistent regular season. When things went wrong, nobody received more heat that cornerback Marcus Peters. Through it all though, Peters actually played pretty well down stretch, partly aided by the return of the Rams other corner Aqib Talib. The Rams seem to think Peters showed enough in his turnaround to warrant a potential new deal at some point. We’ll see if that’s just talk or actually culminates in a deal.
And you thought London was far? The Rams may end up being the opponent when the San Francisco 49ers host a game in China during the 2020 season. The Rams are no strangers to travel, having been regular participants in the international series for years, but China will rack them up some serious frequent flyer miles.
