Wildflecken's Random Thoughts On The 2019 Rams During OTA's

1.) Teams establish a new identity for each and every season. Coaches must set new challenges continually or their message becomes stale. Coaches with stale messages are often seeking new employment. What challenges will McVay set for the 2019 Rams? Does the 2019 schedule play a role in the identity...

Re: Micah Kiser Could Be The Key To Rams Fielding A Top 3 Defense

I’m aware of the Matthews plan. Teams still pass on first and second down and I expect Kiser to be specifically targeted because that’s perceived as a weakness of his. The new additions come with their own set of questions. I love the prospects of Long & Rapp... but they haven’t played a down in th...

Re: Micah Kiser Could Be The Key To Rams Fielding A Top 3 Defense

I got too excited about unproven guys last year and I'm not going down that path again. I like Kiser. He seems like a smart dude who really cares about football. He's definitely not a guy you want on the field in passing situations.. but on first and some second downs, he'll be useful. The pass rus...

Re: Rams reportedly have genuine concerns about Todd Gurley's knee

They never seem to get it, TG’s knee is of course a concern, hence drafting Henderson. Regardless of the knee, a dynamic back up was the goal. In no ways how, do I think TG is ever going to be the “workhorse” again... Gurley's load will be lightened, but he most certainly will be a workhorse back o...

Re: Florio: I would not be surprised if Goff doesn't get a second contract with the Rams."

Goff was also under tremendous pressure in the other loss's as well.

Russell Wilson and Pat Mahomes... Rogers used to be o...

One has to weight the McVay Offense, the value to an organization a qb playing on his rookie deal presents and the performance of Goff himself. The analysis has to equate to Goff being a talent who elevates the play of others around him How has Kirk Cousins performed once he left the Redskins organi...

Rambill Great Read thanks for posting. 1.)

Re: Is The Outlook For The 2019 Season Brighter Than It Was in 2018?

I think Brockers is a 3-4 DE in the first and 2nd down sets and can see him move inside with JFM, Matthews or Obo outside of him on passing downs. Interesting take, but I do see the value of the third down philosophy with Mathews/Fowler at OLB, JFM at DE and Brockers aligning inside with either a o...
