The pairing of Stafford and Sean McVay brought the best out of the QB

The marriage of McVay and Stafford resulted in a Super Bowl victory in just it’s first year, and it’s fair to...

It’s hard to make a name for yourself at the back end of the draft, but Fuller is calling plays in the back of the defense

This was supposed to be Terrell Burgess’s name in the top-20. Maybe Burgess will catch up soon. Maybe Burgess will even surpass Jordan Fuller.

But through their first two seasons in the league, it hasn’t even been close.

Drafted with the 199th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Fuller was a three-year starter at Ohio State...

Could Trey Lance scramble Rams’ Super Bowl hopes?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Lance could be a thorn in Rams’ side for years to come

The Los Angeles Rams’ window for contention will remain open for the next two to three years, based on the remaining contract duration for star players like Matthew Stafford, Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and Cooper Kupp.

One threat to that contention window, however, could be the development and potential emergence of second-year quarterback Trey Lance for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers...

We need to set a new bar for “good receiver stats”

What’s a good benchmark for statistical success at the wide receiver position in the year 2022?

Many of us grew up in a land where 1,000 yards sounded so clean and difficult to achieve, so what else could there be? But with a heavier focus on the passing game and a 17th contest added to the schedule, we are past the time when 1,000 receiving yards is all that special.

In 2003, 14 players crossed...

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

And carry off a great linebacker on a great contract

Back in early March and within two weeks of Bobby Wagner’s unceremonious release from the Seattle Seahawks, the Los Angeles Rams hosted the star linebacker on a free agent visit. It only took another week or so for Les Snead to hammer out a deal bringing the SoCal native home.

Wagner and the Rams agreed to a five-year, $50 million contract with $20m of that guaranteed. Incentives, if met, could substantially...

A change of pace: Les Snead is investing in inside linebackers

During his first season at the helm, Sean McVay hired Wade Phillips and that meant a 3-4 defense with multiple inside linebackers, which in turn led to a one-year pact for veteran Connor Barwin. After parting with Alec Ogletree in 2018, the team turned to undrafted free agent Cory Littleton, a Pro Bowl invitee during his first (and second-to-last) season as a starter for the Los Angeles...

We know that Odell Beckham Jr. can be a super good football player. We do not know that he is super-human, however.

Though it is not impossible to play football with a torn ACL—Philip Rivers reportedly played through a partially-torn ACL in the 2007 playoffs—it would be especially hard to believe that someone could play wide receiver for several months under those same conditions. But OBJ...
