Reason VI – Von Miller will be the Rams lightning rod

With the LA Rams in need of a defensive booster shot, why not bring a player who is impeccable? But why stop there? Why not bring a player who is extremely confident in his own play on the football field, that he is willing to shoulder the pressure for his teammates?

What do I mean?

For the past two seasons, the LA Rams have been successful, but have struggled to match up with some of the more physical teams in the NFL. Teams like the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers, and the Baltimore Ravens, all have ongoing winning streaks against the LA Rams. The reason? They beat the Rams on the line of scrimmage, overwhelming Aaron Donald by sheer numbers, and winning the one-on-one matchups at the other positions.

Well, that won’t last long. Von Miller is not only one of the best NFL players to play the game, but he is incredibly prideful and won’t put up with players of other teams calling out the Rams or the Rams players before, during, or after a game.

As much fun as he has at playing the game, he doesn’t take kindly to trolling. Particularly from players of upcoming opponents. When that happens this year, look for a far different response by this Rams defense both on the football field and off.

No more Dallas Cowboys claiming ownership of SoFi stadium. No more trolling by Deebo. Do that crime, pay the fine. Von Miller plays football. But he doesn’t forget trash takers.
