For the past six months, Los Angeles and the NFL have been a buzz about the move of the St. Louis Rams back to LA; their true home. The pressure is building and tons of questions remain on what this team will do in a new city.
Trading for the Number 1 overall pick, picking “the franchise QB”, releasing veteran tenured players like James Laurinaitis (now in New Orleans) and Chris Long (now in New England), Losing a few guys to free agency (Janoris Jenkins and Rodney McLeod), adding depth to an already stacked front line with Dominique Easley, moving Alec Ogletree to Middle linebacker, signing Mark Barron to a huge long term deal (5 years, $45 million), Oh and just that little TV program from the small network HBO called “Hard Knocks”.
So with all those moving pieces/ drama/ excitement/ expectations, what does a successful season look like? (LISTEN: Below we debate this with Brandon and Adam from The Seahawkers Podcast)
7-9? 8-8? 10-6? Well although we’d all like to finally see a winning season, if the Rams we’re 8-8 with a rookie QB, in one of the toughest divisions in the league I think that would be a pretty good place to start a foundation here in LA. Question is, is 8-8 good enough for Jeff Fisher and Les Snead to keep their jobs? Only time will tell but you can be certain this Rams fan (@LA_RamblingBear) will be glued to every minute of the drama!
