Zzz. The LA Rams are 4-1 and almost nobody is noticing

The LA Rams are heading into a showdown with the San Francisco 49ers in week six. They are 4-1 but should be 5-0 thanks to a bogus flag.  Well hey, I suppose we’re the last fan base to complain about a call or a lack of a call. Better this happened now than in the playoffs.

The Rams have not been included in really top 5 lists since the season started and maybe that’s how we should like it. I mean, who likes the team that’s constantly talked about in the media and beloved by fans and such. It’s a vicious cycle. Build up a team to lofty expectations. Then, after a loss, toss them to the wayside and build up the next team.

Home semi-sweet home

The Rams are finally playing in their new home at SoFi Stadium. Even though it just opened, the Rams are still slowly winning over a fan base back in Los Angeles. While the 2020 COVID-19 restrictions in place had prevented fans from watching the Rams play first-hand, there was still work to do to ensure that the Rams would have solid backing in the Los Angeles area.

After all, the team hasn’t really had a solid fan turnout since moving back from St. Louis. The Rams seem to be a balanced team on all three sides of the football (minus kicking. please replace Sam Sloman). The Rams don’t need a home-field advantage in the playoffs to succeed.

With the Rams being one of the best running teams in the NFL with their three-headed trio, this team can be dangerous in December. There are still many players remaining on this roster who recall the trip to the Superbowl.  Those same players remember going to New Orleans to beat the Saints in the NFC Championship.

This team may need a piece or two to put them over the top but at this very moment, it looks like Rams head coach Sean McVay has done it again. This team has looked very very good and is almost a lock to at least make the playoffs.

More stuff

The Rams are ranked third in point differential but the team needs to get more turnovers or they should focus more on ball security. The Rams are close to an elite team and the other 31 NFL teams should be scared of this team right now.

But hey, who doesn’t like an underdog story. This team will be under the radar and will be on cruise control. I just hope the Rams aren’t playing their best ball right now and they have some improvement left in December and January.

Next. LA Rams WR duo Kupp and Woods balance one-another. dark

After all, the Rams will welcome back A’Shawn Robinson, Jordan Fuller, and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo.  The LA Rams kicker scares me. At just 75 percent accuracy, the LA Rams are among the worst in the NFL.  Making matters worse, the Rams simply do not attempt field goals beyond 40 yards yet. Weren’t the Rams looking for an accurate and long-distance kicker?  They have neither.  Please replace Sam Sloman…..
