If history itself teaches us anything, it certainly offers plenty of lessons to formulate how the LA Rams organization might be strategizing their offseason actions. While the Rams coaching staff continues to be pried away to take up new roles with other NFL teams, the Rams clearly have to pivot from 2023 to 2024.

In many ways, that process has already begun.

Unlike the month or so after winning Super Bowl LVI, the Rams season ended abruptly during the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The final game played by the team ended on January 14, 2024, That was a full three weeks ago, which is plenty of time for the front office to lay down at least a basic framework for strategizing their offseason moves.

It's the annual NFL front office pirouette, a seamless glide of synchronized spinning that gives personnel executives and scouting analysts reason to burn the midnight oil. This is the season when years' worth of scouting, analysis, and assessments must crystallize into legible and comparative player profiles that can be absorbed quickly. After hundreds of profiles are consumed, the team must begin the Herculean task of sorting and ranking each profile in terms of talent, mental makeup, coachability, and ultimately fit.

It's fruit salad gone amok.

How can anyone truly gauge the identity of a player from a profile? And at the same time, try to connect the cables of that players identity to the overall team in terms of talent, upside, downside, financial cost, football acumen, and a host of other vita factors that all play a part in the success or failure of that player in the next year or four years.
