This offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Friday, May 11th about your Los Angeles Rams:
2018 NFL Guarantees: L.A. Rules, Mitch Trubisky Rises and More
The 2018 NFL Draft has been in the books for a couple of weeks now, but the buzz surrounding this event lives on. And as the offseason storylines continue to unfold, NFL.com's Adam Schein is delivering his way-too-early guarantees for the 2018 season — a few of which include the Los Angeles Rams.
1) Each Los Angeles team makes a deep playoff run:*
"I'm "California Dreamin'," as The Mamas & The Papas sang. And Sia perfected. (Yeah. I said it.) I'm all in on the Rams and Chargers this year. I think both teams will win 10-plus games and be in the thick of their respective division races…
Both teams are well-coached and have big-time running backs. Philip Rivers is a future Hall of Famer. Jared Goff blossomed into a fine player under Sean McVay. The Chargers and Rams are both hitting the postseason and winning playoff games. I guarantee it. An all-L.A. Super Bowl isn't a Hollywood pipe dream. It's truly possible."
4) Aaron Donald wins Defensive Player of the Year (again):
"I provided this very guarantee in this very column one year ago. And it came to fruition. So ... If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Donald is the best defensive player in the sport by any measuring stick. This cat is the definition of a game wrecker. And now, with Ndamukong Suh joining him up front, Donald will have the opportunity to wreak even more havoc. He is going to ruin Sundays for offensive coordinators. Now, about that new contract."
**NFL People to Root For on Each NFL Team:
As the NFL.com's Adam Shank notes, it's always nice to root for players from other teams. While you may not necessarily be a fan of every club in the league, there is usually at least one player from every team that you think is "pretty cool."
This week, Shank is giving out his personal list of favorite people from each NFL team. Though he is not saying they are the best nor the most exciting, he is saying that they are among his favorites to root for.**
LOS ANGELES RAMS: Wade Phillips, DC
Truly one of the most entertaining coaches in NFL history and clearly one of the very best at what he does. I hope he's able to keep his stable of heels on top, like the NFL version of Bobby Heenan.
