Hi, I'm Matt Williamson with yard barker here to give you my state of the Los Angeles Rams address.
And under the newly implemented playoff rules, Rams would have been the seventh seed in the playoffs last year.
And who knows what could happen from there for the year before they were in the Super Bowl? Los Angeles has the league's best defensive player by a wide margin and Aaron Donald, as well as another elite defensive talent in Jalen Ramsey, as well as a very bright young head coach.
But many seem to think that the Rams window has closed.
Getting out of the NFC West certainly won't be easy, but don't discount this team quite yet.
It used to be that the Rams offense was exclusively an 11 personnel unit with three wide receivers in one tight end, but it is adapted to a much higher percentage of too tight end sets with two receivers.
One thing that hasn't changed, though, is it's a great deal.
The yardages generated the passing game after the catch, often off a play action.
Los Angeles must get the running game back on track, and Cam Acres is my favorite dark horse candidate for offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
Jared Goff gets a lot of criticism, and much of that it's justified.
Been looking at the money he is currently making and where he was picking the drive first overall.
But when the conditions were rather favourable, golf can do a lot of damage drawing the football.
The defense was in nickel personnel less than any team in the league, so in turn, they were in the top of the league in base and dime personnel groupings.
The Rams gain more than half a yard for play on offense than they allowed last year, even though the string of offenses and defense's they faced last season were both among the toughest in the league.
Los Angeles was also plus 28 sack differential, an exceptional number.
The roster construction here is very unique.
A true Stars and scrub scrubs approach, which obviously comes from being set up to go five straight years without using a first round pick.
But give the team the Rams team building strategies.
Some credit here in that they always find a way to ac***ulate a couple after after a couple extra draft picks during each and every draft using the mid rounds, sometimes in the 3rd 4th round neighborhood, so they get an influx of young, cheap players coming into the organization.
Wow, it certainly could be the NFL's toughest division.
The Rams don't face a super challenging schedule over, although this year after battle battling one the toughest slates in the league a year ago, the Rams could still make some noise.
Hi, Matt Williamson with your board.
