Want LA Rams offense to be physical? WR Allen Robinson brings it
The LA Rams offense was just enough to earn their first NFL Championship for the city of Los Angeles, California. Not that the offense wasn’t loaded. It was simply that by the time the final gun sounded from Super Bowl LVI, the team had lost four wide receivers and two tight ends to injuries. Thankfully, the team still had an upright quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp.
But the Rams felt like a long-distance runner that had only enough to break the tape at the finish line and then collapse in a cascade of fatigue, pain, and mental exhaustion. The Rams offense, as loaded as it was to start the season, was a bit ragtag by the end of Super Bowl LVI. The Rams were playing a host of rookies and inexperienced receivers: Tight end Brycen Hopkins and wide receiver Ben Skowronek to name a couple of players.
Physicality means Allen Robinson
One of the major complaints about the LA Rams offensive style of play was that the team was simply not very physical. The Rams are very good at what they do. But against physical defenses, the receivers’ timing gets thrown off, offensive linemen cannot hold blocks, and the running backs simply cannot gain tough yards. Well, I believe that complaint has been heard. In fact, it may be the underlying cause for the LA Rams to add a wide receiver like Allen Robinson.
He is very physical indeed. But why believe me? He’s broken down his own game film, so just click the Link Here and enjoy the show. This was an interview that occurred virtually during the initial outbreak of COVID-19, and so is a mix of social issues, health issues, but best of all, football. If you want to get right to the gridiron, you can start viewing at the 2:25 mark.
Not only does the video highlight Robinson’s physicality, but it illustrates his football IQ. He can talk football on par with Kupp and Stafford. But with the ball in the air, he demonstrates almost unmatched body control and can gyrate his body in the air like a cat, pivoting towards the ball as it arrives, leaping up, and making the type of catches that Odell Beckham Jr. did for the LA Rams.
