Rams Should Purse WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith

by Marquis Munson

Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher feels like he needs to make changes at wide receiver rather than at quarterback. Here is his chance to add another deep threat to the Rams receiving core.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been on the trading block since last season. If the Bears are trying to give up one of their best assets, the Rams should seize the opportunity on their stupidity.

After a rookie season where he caught 24 passes for 367 yards, Jeffery would gain over 1,000 yards receiving in the next two seasons including a career-high 1,421 yards in 2013. Last season, he played 9 games and still collected 807 yards.

Goff taking first-team reps, ‘ready to go’ if called upon

By Chris Wesseling

The Jared Goff watch is in full bloom in Los Angeles.

One week after NFL Network’s Steve Wyche reported that the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft would begin seeing increased practice reps, the Los Angeles Rams provided a strong hint that Goff will soon displace Case Keenum in the starting lineup.

Goff took first-team practice reps in the Rams’ final practice of the bye week Wednesday, per Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.

“I feel tremendously more comfortable than I’ve ever felt,” Goff said, via Klein. “I feel confident that if my number’s called, I’ll be ready to go.”

Rams Roster: Time for Jeff Fisher to test Jared Goff over Case Keenum?

By Peter Erick Magbanua

Despite the loss they suffered during the weekend, Los Angeles Rams Coach Jeff Fisher is still keen in keeping Case Keenum as their starting quarterback. This, despite mounting pressure to give top rookie Jared Goff the chance to call the snaps on the field.

Fisher tells Pro Football Talk that their 17-10 loss to the New York Giants was not Keenum’s fault. He added that he would rather adjust other positions before moving his starting quarterback.

Fisher’s statement means that he would stick with Keenum despite the suggestion to use Goff in their next match which will be against the Carolina Panthers in Week 9.

“Jared’s going to play when we feel Jared’s ready. Had we won this game you wouldn’t be asking about Jared,” Fisher said. “We didn’t lose this game because of the quarterback play. We lost it because of some other positions.”

Mike Freeman’s 10-Point Stance: Rams Are Sabotaging Todd Gurley’s Career

By Mike Freeman 
We are watching a star go downhill before our very eyes, players on Josh Brown, and Peegate.

1. The Ruination of Todd Gurley Continues
This past week Todd Gurley rushed for 57 yards. It was the ninth consecutive week he failed to reach 100 yards. Nine. Straight. Weeks.

Remember when Gurley was going to wreck this league? Remember when he was compared to Eric Dickerson? Remember when Gurley was going to rush for 2,000 yards? Remember?

I warned in the spring that the Rams would ruin Gurley, a unique talent, one of the most unique we’ve seen in the past four or five years. But now we are seeing it in action.

Rams optimistic with key players on mend, favorable schedule ahead

By Alden Gonzalez

The Los Angeles Rams are in a dark place, having followed three straight wins with three consecutive losses to fall below .500 through seven games for the ninth time in the past 10 years.

But reasons for optimism loom.

Coming out of their bye week, the Rams have two critical factors in their favor: A soft schedule and uncommon health. There’s at least a slight chance that every single one of their players will be healthy by the time they play again on Nov. 6. And that day will mark the beginning of a four-week stretch against four teams — the Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints — that sit a combined 8-18.

Keenum-Goff QB debate might be the only interesting thing about this Rams team


It wasn’t for things like the dramatic home opener, a thriller decided by late defensive dominance.

Or the unexpected win at Arizona, a struggling NFC contender but an NFC contender still the same.

Or the 3-1 start overall, a record that had the Rams atop their division and the possibilities spiraling to even loftier heights.

No, the reason the NFL’s return to Los Angeles was good for business is because of what’s happening right now:

Five Takeaways: Rams 17-10 loss to Giants

By Myles Simmons

After a long flight home following 10 days on the road, the Rams find themselves 3-4 and on a three-game losing streak heading into their bye week. With many in the Los Angeles locker room intimating the club will use the extra preparation time to reflect, recharge, and regroup, here are five takeaways from the Rams’ 17-10 loss to the Giants in London.

1) Turnovers hurt

While Los Angeles capitalized on an early takeaway — turning defensive back Lamarcus Joyner’s forced fumble into a touchdown — the club ended up behind in the turnover margin once again in this loss. While the box score gives those interceptions to quarterback Case Keenum, head coach Jeff Fisher stated both Sunday and Monday that they are not all on the signal-caller.

“At first glance, if you look, [you say], ‘Oh, he threw four interceptions,’” Fisher said. “You look at the actual plays, and as you guys know, interceptions — you can place blame wherever you want.”
