3 biggest things the Rams can improve upon in 2022

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Where do the world champions need to get better? The Rams were the best team in the NFL last season, and I believe that is a fair statement whether we are talking about the Super Bowl or the entirety of the league year. From the moment that Les Snead acquired Matthew Stafford in late January to defeating the Bengals in the Super Bowl a little more than 12 months later, the LA Rams consistently edged out the other 31 teams and collectively had the most number of correct moves in 2021 and the playoffs. This honor of being “the best” is...

Silver Minings: Derek Carr’s salary-cap number is ‘optimal’

Derek Carr | Photo by Andy Lyons/ Might be a good sign for 2022 success It’s long been considered that manageable quarterback salary is a way to sustain a strong roster in the NFL, and, thus, have an advantage when it comes to be building a competitive overall team.

Bengals crack top 10 of new NFL Power Rankings

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Too high, too low, or just right? The Cincinnati Bengals may be coming off a Super Bowl berth, but they’re not getting much respect entering the 2022 season, as if that incredible playoff run was just a fluke. To be fair, the Bengals have one of, if not the toughest schedule of any NFL team, and they now have a target on their backs after winning the AFC. But if we look at the Bengals simply as what they are and not how they’ll do against a daunting schedule, there’s no question they’re one of the NFL’s best overall teams. Peter King...

The Bengals aren’t frauds. Here’s why.

They might not make it back to the Super Bowl. But to suggest that they are on the verge of collapsing after their...
