2 years since he asked for a trade to a contender.
I can’t tell how good the Rams will be this year. Their depth looks suspect. Relying on a LOT of Rookies. McVay is a good coach but has his flaws. Stafford obviously a good QB but health and OL concerns. Kupp and Donald coming back from injuries.
Their schedule early looks very tough as well. i can see anywhere from 11 wins to 5 wins in the regular season .
Kronke wanted to win in his home stadium and he did. And now there are as many die hard Rams fans in LA as there are die hard Lions fans in LA. Unfortunately there are a shit ton more Cowboys, Raiders, Chiefs, Bills, Bengals, Packers, Eagles and Bears fans in LA than either of those fan bases. My guess is that if the number of people in the LA Metro Area who don’t care about the Rams were a fan base, they’d easily be a top ten fan base in the NFL.
Good article, thanks for sharing, some good information and food for thought.
When reading the Rams “probably have 2 or 3 years left with Stafford” sentence in the article my first thought was, that’s optimistic. Numerous concussions and a back issue(again) I would be surprised if he makes it through 2023.
I have the Rams at 7/8 wins. That’s about where Vegas has them too.
We’re definitely getting older but reports are Stafford is as healthy as he’s been in a bit. Donald and Kupp are still studs. And we have pretty good weapons on offense. If the oline can gel and stay healthy better than they did last year it’ll go a long way. The defense is a complete question mark and in all likelihood they won’t be very good at all. On paper we’re a .500 ball club. Plus we have McVay who’s been a bona-fide winner up to this point.
