Los Angeles Rams fans shouldn’t worry much about current Power Rankings, as no one is winning or losing football games in May.
The Los Angeles Rams come in ranked 30th in the latest Power Rankings courtesy of Bleacher Report. Two significant trends in how they get there: Jared Goff and youth.
While I’d hardly quantify these as indictments of things in Los Angeles, they are fair and worthy of note.
But it’s May, and not a player for the Rams has slipped on pads and a helmet and hit anyone. So making to much of May Power Rankings is to say we’ve given them their due attention.
But it’s a fascinating watch moving forward in LA.
The Rams have gone all the way in making sure Goff has every, EVERY opportunity to succeed in 2017. It’ll be up to him to make the most of it.
Looking back, Los Angeles did a lot despite no first round pick. With the additions of Gerald Everett and Cooper Kupp on Friday night, excuses will be hard to come by for Goff. The upside of that, is we’ll know more about LA’s second year quarterback sooner rather than later.
One more thing to look forward to, Todd Gurley.
No more will the Rams look to the third year running back for leadership or to being the centerpiece to the offense. It won’t run through him any longer and that may be the best news coming out of the 2017 NFL Draft. But he will need to break free of the sophomore slump that swallowed him whole last season. Should that passing game develop, he, like Goff will be the beneficiary of how this team drafted.
So, is being ranked 30th at the beginning of May THAT big of a deal?
But it is something to talk about.
