NFL Networks Tom Pelissero is reporting that Rams running back Cam Ackers will miss the 2021 season with an Achilleas injury. Ackers was drafted by the Rams in the second round of the 2020 draft. Last year Ackers ran for 625 yds in 145 attempts and averaging 4.3 yds per carrying. This injury does hit their running back depth.
LaFleur is reported, already preparing for Goff. They have been preparing all week. LaFleur knows from when he offensive coordinator with the Rams in 2017
Another person that thinks that the weather will cause the Rams will loose. While we may have the number one defense that can stop Arron Rodgers, he feels the weather will effect our offense.
The Rams are not expected to beat Green Bay. This is the same expectation that Rams faced last week against the Seahawks. What happened in that game, has to happen against the Packers. Offensively we have to control the game early, and the Defense needs to be in Rogers face all day.
This is for those Rams’ fans who are pushing for the Rams to trade for Deshaun Watson. That is, if there is a trade.
“He’s laid back, he’s chill,” Rams safety John Johnson III said. “He’s just like a silent assassin.”
This year we two bad teams make the NFL playoffs. They were the 8-8 Chicago Bears and the 7-9 Washington Team. Both teams lost, but here is a list of other bad teams to make the payoffs.
What if John Wolford has a super game against the Cardinals, do we go with him over a heathy Jared Goff in the Playoffs? A poster on a Rams Facebook page asked. He use the parameters of 300 yards passing, two or three TD’s and third one that I forgot to describe a super game.
Before I continue, let me share, how I feel about, “What If Questions.” There are no right or wrong answers to such question because the event in question has not happened. Because the event has not happened, all answers are speculation. Now, let me continue.
What if Wolford has a super game against the Cardinals, do bench Goff in favor of Wolford. That his super game is not just in the numbers, but also a win. You need the win to ensure a playoff spot. Without the win, this, “what if question,” becomes mute, but a good ponder for next season. Next what are my parameters for his super game?
I would 325 passing yards, 3 or 4 TD’s, and maybe one rushing TD from him. I would like a turnover free game with good time management. Good reaction under pressure from the pass rush. I would like to see him mobile and good eye for were he is on the field, eye on the line scrimmage and first down marker. Good leadership qualities overall. A tall order, but this would help me make a decision.
I would bench Goff if the last two losses and some of the mistake played heavy on my mind. Wolford’s performance would temp me very strongly even though this would be one game. But, if was McVay, and saw Wolford master master my offensive schemes, I would have to move on from Goff. McVay had no say in drafting Goff and there for no allegiance to him. Wolford was McVay choice and he may his way. Plus, had to publicly call out Goff’s more performance.
