Five Big Questions For McVay And Co. In 2019 | Sports Al Dente
It’s a long road back to the big dance. Here are a few fundamental truths staring the 2019 Los Angeles Rams in the face.
While his 20.5 sacks in 2018 were a personal best, Aaron Donald waited a few weeks before notching his first. Is Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record in jeopardy? If AD gets help from his linemates, it sure could be.
See: above. Donald won two consecutive DPOY awards training on his own, so it would be silly to say he “needs” training camp, but it’s sure good to have the big fella out there helping the entire defense come together as a unit.
It would be pretty shocking if the NFL Commissioner and he referees from the NFC Championship game were deposed for an inflated case of “butthurt,” but here we are.
Clearly, TST readers take the internet very seriously. Hence, why you are here. That said, it sounds like Todd Gurley’s head is right, as he tunes out the noise preparing to do his job.
He won’t be compared to peak Ric Flair anytime soon, but Goff has added a little bulk to his wiry frame. Of more importance: he’s making some throws easier, which should quicken his release.
The hiring of DL coach Eric Henderson was, on paper, one of the least notable Rams transactions this offseason. If you ask Aaron Donald, it was one of the most important.
After a topsy turvy 2018 campaign, CB Marcus Peters is focused on more than his paycheck. If he can revert to the gambling ballhawk of his Chiefs days, he’ll likely be looking at a franchise tag. If he remains inconsistent, it could signal an overhaul of the Rams secondary in 2020.
