Reminder: 49ers have made all the wrong moves at QB under Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch

Reminder: 49ers have made all the wrong moves at QB under Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Will it be different this time? It was April 27, 2017 and the San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to draft Mitchell Trubisky, Patrick Mahomes, or Deshaun Watson at quarterback, any of whom would have made for a justifiable pairing with new head coach Kyle Shanahan. Instead, general manager John Lynch traded down from two to three, adding two thirds and a fourth before selecting Solomon Thomas with the third overall pick. Instead of drafting a franchise quarterback, Shanahan and Lynch wait until Halloween of that same...

Creed Humphrey praised for confirming the tape during pre-draft process

Creed Humphrey praised for confirming the tape during pre-draft process

Photo by Don Juan Moore/ Could the Rams land the top center in the draft? The LA Rams could be in a great position in the draft this year in spite of the fact that they don’t have a first round pick. The Rams only have one exceptionally clear need on the roster, which is a starting center. There are not a lot of teams in the NFL right now who seem like they’ll be prioritizing center in the draft and it is possible that this could be one of those years where no center goes in the top-45 picks. Which would mean that Oklahoma’s Creed Humphrey could still be on the...

Robert Woods talks about Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff, offseason workouts

And more LA Rams receiver Robert Woods is on a bit of a media tour this week and he spoke with Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio and Chris Simms on Thursday. Florio opened the interview by asking Woods about throwing the ball into the stands after a touchdown against the Seahawks in LA’s wild card playoff win in Seattle. Woods said that he was specifically trying to gift a parting gift to the home crowd. “I was aiming for Seattle’s family section, sending them home with a souvenir gift.” Goff finds a WIDE OPEN Robert Woods for the TD Rams lead 30-13(via...

Rams all about receivers in their pre-draft visits

Rams all about receivers in their pre-draft visits

Photo by Mark Brown/ Which would you prefer? When the LA Rams signed DeSean Jackson to a contract worth up to $4.5 million despite the fact that he’s barely played in the last two years and is turning 35 in December, it seemed to signal that the team was getting desperate for a number three option. It doesn’t matter if “only” $2.75 million is guaranteed — that’s still a lot for Jackson given the circumstances and the lowered 2021 salary cap — the Rams still have to conduct business this year as if they will be spending the full $4.5 million on him. And yet...

Aaron Donald’s immense value to the Rams since 2014

Aaron Donald’s immense value to the Rams since 2014

Photo by Stacy Revere/ No defensive player has been close to as good as Donald While we wait for word from Aaron Donald, the LA Rams, the NFL, or the Pittsburgh police department regarding an alleged assault that occurred early Sunday morning, reportedly involving Donald, it is worth noting again just how transcendent and historically unique he has been as a football player since entering the league in 2014. Donald has only missed two of a possible 112 games in his career, and he’s been active for six of six playoff games, albeit in a limited capacity in LA’s most...

Jeff Fisher returns to football, will help Eddie George build Tennessee State program

Jeff Fisher returns to football, will help Eddie George build Tennessee State program

Jackie Bell / The Tennessean via Imagn Content Services, LLC Five years after he was fired by the Los Angeles Rams, the last time he was officially working with a football team, Jeff Fisher is back in the game. Kind of. Fisher will serve as an advisor at Tennessee State, which recently hired former NFL running back Eddie George to be their next head coach. Fisher drafted George to play for the Houston Oilers in 1996 and the next year the team moved to Tennessee. Now George is the head coach at Tennessee State, a program that dates back to 1912, and it was a phone call...

Rams day 3 mock draft

Rams day 3 mock draft

BRIANA SANCHEZ/EL PASO TIMES, El Paso Times via Imagn Content Services, LLC Who could the Rams select after the third round? The Athletic’s Dane Brugler posted a full 7-round mock draft this week and obviously that included six picks for the Los Angeles Rams. Out of respect for Dane’s paywall, but also because mock drafts are just fictional pre-event fodder anyway, I’m not going to highlight who he had the Rams selecting on day two. Instead, let’s focus on the three players he mocked to the Rams on day three, an area of the draft that people rarely talk about....

Hollis provided a photo of the accuser, De Vincent Spriggs, that appears to show a man with a severely swollen right eye and wearing a sling for a cast.

Random Ramsdom: Who is your breakout player for 2021?

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Your source for Rams and NFL news from around the web. The Rams lost quite a bit of talent from their number one-ranked defense in 2020 over the past month. Cornerback Troy Hill, safety John Johnson, and defensive tackle Michael Brockers were all starters last season, and this doesn’t include impact role players like defensive tackle Morgan Fox. Younger players will have to step up in 2021 and I think that’s an easy place to look when we’re talking about potential breakout guys in this upcoming season. Who is YOUR potential breakout star...

Meet the person in charge of the LA Rams’ diet

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports And how does a nutrition change his or her job to fit the needs of a football team? Curious about nutrition and fitness? Like the Los Angeles Rams? Then it is certainly possible that you’ll be interested in this interview I found on Tuesday with Joey Blake, the head team dietitian for the LA Rams. In this video from the “Fitness with Friends” podcast, Blake details how he became involved with the Rams in 2017, his thoughts on nutrition and diet, and specifically what roles he has with the team. Not every team has a “team...

Matthew Stafford opens fourth in MVP odds

Matthew Stafford opens fourth in MVP odds

Kirthmon F. Dozier, Detroit Free Press Matthew Stafford rarely had opportunities to get noticed during his 12 seasons with the Detroit Lions. Yes, he could have done better. Yes, he’s only been to the playoffs three times (and lost each game). But Stafford also led the NFL in game-winning drives in 2014, 2016, and 2017. Stafford’s eight game-winning drives in 2016 is still the most ever recorded in a single season, dating back to at least 1960. Now Stafford is playing for a head coach who has led the LA Rams to the playoffs in three of four tries — with a winning...

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Your source for Rams and NFL news from around the web. ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper just published his latest two-round mock draft and he has the Rams avoiding several other prominent needs to select South Carolina linebacker Ernest Jones with the 57th-overall pick. Jones is a lengthy, rangy linebacker who was a tackling machine during the 2020 season. In just nine games played, he finished with 86 total tackles, including a pair of games where he notched at least 18 stops. He also added five tackles-for-loss and a sack. As a junior, Jones...

Poll: Who is your “AFC team”?

Poll: Who is your “AFC team”?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports It can be frustrating to sit out the first round of the draft every year, so perhaps in the case of the LA Rams, fans can find day one excitement with another team in the NFL. Usually, that “number two team” would be in the opposite conference, though I realize plenty of people have various reasons for looking elsewhere when the A-squad isn’t involved. But there are plenty of AFC teams with intriguing reasons to follow them right now, especially as it pertains to the 2021 draft. The Jaguars pick first and will add Trevor Lawrence...

The state of the NFC: Where do the Rams rank as the draft approaches?

Mike De Sisti / The Milwaukee Jo via Imagn Content Services, LLC A check-in around the division and the conference When the LA Rams last played, they fell to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round. Prior to that, they easily bested the 12-4 Seahawks in Seattle. When the Packers last played, they lost to the TB Buccaneers in the NFC Championship and when Tampa last played, a team that finished second in their own division behind the New Orleans Saints, they won it all. The NFC is plenty loaded at the top. Things got more loaded for the Rams when they swapped out...
