Aloha!

The Los Angeles Rams are in Honolulu, Hawaii, to take on the Dallas Cowboys tonight in Week 2 of the 2019 preseason.

After Week 1’s limp showing, there’s much to improve upon especially up front. The offensive line interrupted the flow of the offense last week leaving the Rams with very little opportunity to operate their scheduled offense among the depth. None of the Rams’ five expected starters on the offensive line played last week, so it was an extremely young and inexperienced line. In terms of rotation, there wasn’t a ton on the line last week with rookie RT Bobby Evans playing every snap while rookie LT David Edwards, LG Jamil Demby and C Aaron Neary played all but the final few series. Demby slid into center for a bit, but a bad snap might have erased that from game situations and relegated it to more practice.

Defensively, the Rams looked fine last week though there needs to be more pressure on the quarterback. The run defense was strong and coverage was a plus. We’ll see if we can get more coming off the edge in obvious passing situations.

Let’s see how the depth plays tonight.
