So Sean McVay says it’ll be good to start the season, but what about finishing it?
Todd Gurley Absent as Rams Begin Voluntary OTA Workouts | OC Register
But Todd Gurley’s knee is doing fine. I’m only half-joking here. As the article states, it’s not without precedent for vets secure in their spot to not show up, but I still don’t buy the narrative that all is well.
They aren’t only aiming for the Super Bowl. The win is next folks.
Rams Re-Sign Linebacker Cory Littleton | Pro Football Talk
I’m happy about this. Corey Littleton really took to that Mike spot, and I’m excited to see how he continues to grow in that spot. Not to mention the man is invaluable on Special Teams.
Clay Matthews, Eric Weddle Bring Versatility to Rams’ Defense | Los Angeles Times
It’ll be really interesting to see how these two contribute to the defense. Sure they’re aging, but I don’t think they’re quite done yet.
Man, if there’s one player I can’t wait to see back on the field after going down prematurely last season, it’s Cooper Kupp. He was sorely missed every single game he didn’t play last season.
In the category of great players who are also great humans, Chris Long is there. I feel bad for all the players who gave their primes to a losing Rams team and never got to see the Super Bowl in horns. Obviously included in this list is the beast man himself Steven Jackson. But man, were they fun to watch.
These players are going to need seriously step up to fill the shoes of the players who left. And when Andrew Whitworth calls it quits, that’s going to be some serious shoes to fill. But that’s a problem for another season.
