The one “non-call” in the closing minutes of the 2018 NFC Championship game has annoited Rams vs Saints a rivalry. I want to stop here. The one “non-call”? There were more than one so called “non-call.” There were two other “non-calls” that should have gone against the Saints, but unlike Sean “Bounty-Gate’ Payton, Sean McVay did not go crying to the league. He didn’t even go crying to league after the “non-call” on Brandon Cooks that prevented a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl. He just moved on.
Sure, he’s an excellent X’s and O’s coach on game days and in the week of preparation, but he’s also turned L.A. into a destination for players. The Rams have signed two outside free agents this offseason – Eric Weddle and Blake Bortles – and both have raved about McVay, mentioning him as one of the primary reasons they picked Los Angeles.(Cameron DaSilva-Ramswire)
The above comment comes from an article written by Cameron DaSilva for Ramswire. DaSilva writes that the Rams young head coach, Sean McVay’s two of success, as a the main reason for the Rams becoming a free agent destination.
Dasilva supports McVay’s success as a drawing beacon for the Rams by using Bortles’ own words.
“I mean, I think as a quarterback, there’s not really anybody else you’d rather be around if you had your pick,” Bortles said, via the team’s official site. “What he’s done, the people that have been taken out of here for head coaching jobs, and OC jobs in other places I think is a testament to how good he is at what he does, how good of a teacher and a coach he is. And you watch them play, and the effort and intensity that they play at speaks to the type of head coach he is and how he gets the guys going.”(DaSilva article)
One can only hope that McVay’s success continues, and Les Snead continues to supply with the Rams high quality players to continue McVay’s success.
I came across this Cameron DeSilva article last Thursday, but unfortunately, I never had a chance to post it.
I feel somewhat bad for the guy. I understand that football is a business, but what the hey. After all, he did help the Rams get to the Super Bowl. In his five starts in place of Todd Curley, he had three 100 yard games.
It is bad enough that the Rams have ignored him so far, but there has to be another team in need a running back even for a backup. Yet, as of Thursday no calls.
The Rams should have considered Anderson because the uncertainty Gurley’s availability. His arthritic knee may keep him on the bench more than on the field. This could put bulk of the rushing on Malcom Brown. If they were to sign Anderson, this would help take pressure off a Brown should Gurley not available.
When the Rams first announced the details of Dante Fowler Jr’s contract, there some who thought the $14 million was to high Ramswire’s Cameron Desilva.
The Rams original statement stated that he signed a one year $14 million contract. This is why many people thought the dollar figure was too high. The new details break the dollar figure down to $12 million guarantee with $2 million in incentives.
