Official 2021 LA Rams Thread

Lol, literally 0 people wearing masks, regardless of the rules of wearing them when not eating or drinking.

Great start to the season, Stafford looks awesome.

Got some cool scarfs at the game.

That’s awesome man glad you had a good time. Great week 1 win. Stanford looked great, I couldn’t be happier to have him.

Really fun experience, SoFi is a great place, the vibe was incredible with 70,000 fans waiting a few years for a home game in the new stadium.

I’m curious if they will try to have some World Cup soccer games there in 2026 or have them again at the Rose Bowl (100,000 people capacity).

LA Rams ranked #3 only under Tampa Bay and KC:

The Bucs committed four turnovers and surrendered 451 total yards against the Cowboys, but they found a way thanks to that little bit of magic Tom Brady seems to bring to every team he plays for. The ageless G.O.A.T. picked apart the Dallas secondary with surgical precision and got fountain of youth-level performances from Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski, who accounted for more than 200 yards and three TDs. Brown looks primed for an All-Pro season, while Gronk was rampaging around the field like he was 27 again. Brady’s talented group of pass catchers run so deep that a perennial Pro Bowl talent like Mike Evans can disappear from the game plan and the unit doesn’t miss a beat. Scary stuff.

Patrick Mahomes is a football genius. How else can you explain that impossible downfield heave that resulted in Tyreek Hill’s 75-yard touchdown in Sunday’s comeback win over the Browns? Mahomes is a relentless force, and his greatness covered up for the sins of a defense that couldn’t get the Cleveland attack off the field all day (the Browns punted once all game). Here’s an all-time crazy stat: In his career in September, Mahomes is 11-0 with 35 touchdowns and zero interceptions. That’s playing- Madden- on-“easy”-level dominance against the greatest football players in the world. We are all witnesses.

Pretty much a perfect opener for the Rams, who executed on both sides of the ball in a blowout win over the Bears under the lights at SoFi Stadium. The breathless offseason hype around the new Sean McVay-Matthew Stafford partnership counts as one summer narrative that was worth all the honking. Stafford looked extremely comfortable running the Rams’ offense, throwing three touchdown passes while returning the deep-strike element that went M.I.A. from McVay’s scheme in the final years of the Jared Goff era. Late in the fourth quarter, with the game well in hand, NBC cameras caught a beaming Stafford working his way down the Rams’ sideline. The man had a glow. This is a career rebirth with championship-level upside.

Preview of Sunday’s game against the Colts:

Rams - 3 1/2 at most books, on the road. Good stuff. Man Stafford looked great last week. Hoping for a little better showing from the defense. They seemed to give up a lot of yards Sunday night.

Funny to think the D is something that needs improvement after all these seasons with Donald.

Will be happy to watch Stafford on TV for the first time with commentary, lol. Seems like a really humble, cool dude. Looks to be a good fit in the system.

Also so happy they have Gay as the kicker, last season was rough trying to find a replacement for Zuerline. Hecker is always a stud.

I guess Henderson is the main RB these days?

Open feild D is still a bit sketchy but the redzone D has been super solid.

Wow that game was WAY too close, lol.

Yeah it was. I mean sure the line closed Rams -4 but I was really hoping both sides of the ball just played a bit better than today. As it was they did just enough to win.

This should be a good game at SoFi., Bucs are 1 point favorites…get some pics of Brady :stuck_out_tongue:

Buccaneers (2-0) vs. Rams (2-0)— Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET — Fox

Two of the best teams in the NFC, both sitting at 2-0, meet in what should be a truly incredible matchup. Tom Brady is once again turning back the clock and playing some of the best football of his career, but what really makes this game so intriguing is how these organizations are similarly constructed.

Both teams lean on their front seven to make plays on defense, having solid secondaries to boot. On the other side of the ball it’s all about the passing attack through veteran quarterbacks and solid receivers, with committee running backs to round it all out.

So far the strategy is working, and as it stands it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Pats and Rams at the end of the playoffs.

Tampa Bay enters slim favorites, making this a must-watch game.

NFL Game of the Week.

Bucs vs Rams, at SoFi, here we go!

Hell of a first half. Rams’ defense looking their best today. And that touchdown to Jackson was awesome. That’s the exact type of play we didn’t have with Goff.

Oh Terrell Lewis just killed gronk. Or knocked his wind out.

Offense and defense coming together, looking great!
