Perhaps the most precious yet overlooked aspect of the LA Rams is the ever-present showmanship that is associated with the Los Angeles Rams social media account. Rather than be handled like a ticker-tape of the latest snooze-fest stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange, the @RamsNFL Twitter account is both fun and informative.
Of course, that only happens when the organization allows a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor to creep in on the official team news releases and announcements. For example, who was the inspired genius who authored this incredibly creative way to make the LA Rams news official:
Did you decipher that cryptic message? The LA Rams announced that GM Les Snead had cleared cap-space for the team in order to comply with the NFL Salary cap. Of course, when you rummage on a daily basis across the internet to find the latest whispers, rumors, or downright bits of news to build upon and share, I suppose I’m a bit more susceptible to the occasional chortle or guffaw at something funny on social media.
So you can imagine that I broke out in laughter when I first saw this one from the Rams today:
Yes, the LA Rams are now officially All In. It’s official. So what does that mean? Well, the LA Rams are pretty special sitting at 7-1, and now have the chance to face and defeat the two best teams in the NFL in the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals. To do that, the Rams felt that they would be best improved by adding All-Pro Von Miller, and they could be correct.
The effect on the LA Rams 2022 NFL Draft is a bit depressing, as the team is now limited to picking just once on Day 2 (Round 3 projected compensatory pick) and seven times on Day 3 (four projected compensatory picks, two original picks, and one pick acquired via trade).
Of course, adding an All-Pro pass rusher will cost the team, and the Rams appear to have bargain-shopped very well at the trade deadline. Now, can this team win it all? You can’t blame the Rams front office for not trying, that’s for sure.
