Andrew Whitworth wants to return to the Rams

A final decision has not yet been made regarding the standout left tackle’s future in LA

While nothing is for certain, it appears steps have been made for standout left tackle Andrew Whitworth to return to the Los Angeles Rams in 2021.

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Rams’ general manager Les Snead said Whitworth wants to come back to the team next season.

When followed up with on this point, Snead says “the answer is yes”...

Rams GM Les Snead avoids committing to Jared Goff, instead quotes Aaron Rodgers: ‘the future is a beautiful mystery’

Jared Goff | Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

What a day for the Rams and their franchise quarterback

The Los Angeles Rams are just messing with Jared Goff at this point.

On Tuesday, Rams general manager Les Snead spoke to local media members and, of course, Goff’s status with the franchise was a burning topic of conversation.

Just like coach Sean McVay last week, Snead was lukewarm in his commitment to Goff, the team’s highly-paid quarterback.

Les Snead, when asked by a reporter why...

Rams GM Les Snead: 'Too early to speculate' on Jared Goff’s future

Rams head coach Sean McVay didn’t offer much in the way of assurances when he was asked about Jared Goff‘s future. Snead offered up a similar answer when chatting with reporters.

The defense should look very similar in 2021.

On Tuesday afternoon, general manager Les Snead met with the media to discuss a number of topics, including the team’s current loyalty to Jared Goff going forward and whether or not the defense will change, if at all, underneath new coordinator Raheem Morris.

Snead made sure to let the fans and media know that the Rams do not plan on making major changes to the scheme that helped them become the top-ranked...

On Monday, Steve Wyche of NFL Network broke the news that Rams cornerbacks coach Aubrey Pleasant has accepted the offer to be the Lions’ new secondary coach and passing game coordinator.

Pleasant joined the staff back in 2017 alongside Sean McVay and has coached the corners for all four years in Los Angeles. Due to his new role in Detroit being considered a promotion, McVay was unable to block...

What was Rams biggest misstep in 2020 offseason?

And what should they learn from it?

I actually think the LA Rams had a successful 2020 offseason given their lack of options in free agency and the draft. For the Rams to improve their win-loss record and make it to the NFC’s “final four” despite not having a first round pick or much salary cap space to retain a number of key starters who left in free agency, Les Snead and Sean McVay deserve credit for finding a way to the divisional round.

But they also take blame for not finding a...

What are the deepest positions in the 2021 NFL Draft and how should that impact the Rams?

And how the LA Rams could benefit

The LA Rams are not slated to pick until the 57th overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft and getting anywhere near the first round would come at a high cost. Instead it might be best to assume that the Rams won’t make their first selection until the mid-to-late second round but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the franchise won’t land a prospect who could have been worthy of going on day one.

Even if a lot of the changes are behind the scenes

An NFL team is made up of a lot more moving parts than simply the head coach and the quarterback and its best player on defense. And a successful NFL team, as the LA Rams have been for the last four years under Sean McVay, tends to lose those parts even quicker than a bad NFL team.

Despite losing in the second round of the playoffs, the Rams have already seen two key members of the front office and three...

Add Bucs to list of teams that benefited from a QB change

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Should the Rams consider making a change?

Six of the last eight Super Bowl quarterbacks became that team’s starter within the two years prior to reaching the biggest stage. That much we know is true after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs won their respective championship games on Sunday.

Will the Los Angeles Rams be among the team’s to make a QB change next?

The Chiefs traded up for Patrick Mahomes in the 2017 draft despite already having a...

Seahawks in contact with Rams’ Shane Waldron for offensive coordinator job

Does Pete Carroll want to steal directly from Sean McVay’s playbook?

Shane Waldron (to the left of OC Kevin O’Connell and Jared Goff) has been working with Sean McVay since being hired as an offensive quality control coach with Washington in 2016, but he has been “passed over” for the offensive coordinator position several times since following McVay to the LA Rams in 2017. Would Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll be willing to give him that promotion in...

Should Rams pursue Matthew Stafford?

Should Rams pursue?

Teams often enter offseasons with uncertain situations involving their franchise quarterbacks — look no further than the 2021 Los Angeles Rams — but usually those situations work themselves out and no significant changes are made. That does not appear to be the case with the Detroit Lions and Matthew Stafford.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting that Stafford and the Lions have mutually agreed to part ways this year. Should the Rams...

The Los Angeles Rams made two changes at coordinator this week, hiring Raheem Morris to run the defense and Joe DeCamillis to run special teams.

Today on Pod-TST, a weekly Los Angeles Rams podcast, I talk about Morris’ history as a coach and what the move could mean for Sean McVay’s talented defense. Additionally, I go over what I think about the move on special teams, Jared Goff’s season and the year ahead at the quarterback position,...

It’s hard to feel too confident about a loss, whether it’s in Week 1 or the Super Bowl. Losses tend to sap confidence and gee, I wonder why?
