The LA Rams enter April 2020 with a whimper.No April Fool’s Day joke, instead, let’s discuss 5 ways that the Rams did foolish things over the past year
The LA Rams have been one of the NFL’s most successful teams ever since general manager Les Snead paired up with head coach Sean McVay. But success has a nasty habit of pairing with failure. Not the subtle type of failure that is easily overlooked with the news of the day, and pushed to the back pages for only the most curious to discover.
No, the Les Snead and Sean McVay errors are themselves front-page headlines. Still, in the high-stakes realm of go-big or go-home, that is the cost of doing business.
To get high rewards in the very competitive NFL, general managers and head coaches need to put up higher stakes. Going for it can result in a team climbing the ranks of NFL teams to compete in a Super Bowl in a matter of two or three years, while other teams never make that climb. But just as easily, it can place a team into a deep hole from which it is difficult to emerge. A place with few NFL draft picks and limited funds. The LA Rams have ended up at both places. Unfortunately, the team has dragged the loyal fans along for the ride. The ride has come from the highest of heights to the lowest of lows.
The best cure for that is to laugh as the follies, dust yourself off, and try again. So for April 1, 2020, what are the five most foolish things the LA Rams have done in the past year?
