LA Rams: New uniforms (4th in series) finally get it right
The LA Rams have a lot riding on the 2021 NFL season. This is a team that is playing on the home field at SoFi Stadium, the most ambitious architectural stadium of the NFL. Coming in at a final estimated cost of $5.5 billion, the Inglewood, California SoFi Sports complex is easily the most expensive sports stadium complex constructed in the world. It’s a site fit for a Super Bowl Champion.
The LA Rams have not been shy about refurbishing their roster. When the organization believes that they have a chance to move the talent and success needle, the front office strikes with the speed and accuracy of a viper. The cost? First-round draft picks are readily traded for the chance to add an elite NFL talent.
The Rams have a plan in place, and it involves more than riding All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald to a .500 win-loss record. The team had added All-Pro defensive back Jalen Ramsey to give the Rams defense a 1-2 punch.
The Rams didn’t stop there. With an eroding offensive ability to score, this team diagnosed the issue and acted once more. This time the Rams have added the venerable quarterback Matthew Stafford. Because there is some question as to whether Stafford truly is as good as the brochure, the Rams were able to outbid over a dozen other NFL teams with the belief that he truly is elite.
This iteration of the LA Rams jersey is a huge step in the right direction.
