  • When asked about the ‘Marcus Peters Wired’ video, Peters said he gets passionate doing what he loves.
  • Peters then mentioned tennis legend Serena Williams and her passion for her game as an example.

“McVay finds a way to get the ball in his players’ hands.” -WR ROBERT WOODS
  • Wide receiver Robert Woods' response to questions surrounding McVay's play creative calls seems simple — and it just might be to the Rams offensive unit.
  • Woods said rather than 'trick plays', he thinks of McVay's jet sweep plays as just another basic offensive play.
  • Woods and fellow receivers Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks each played 97-percent of Monday's offensive snaps.
“That was our first time playing at game speed, game tempo, and we were just barely missing.” -WR ROBERT WOODS
  • Woods chimed in on quarterback Jared Goff's miscalculated deep looks on Monday night.
  • Goff's longest throw of the evening was for 30-yards. He overthrew Woods twice on downfield attempts in Week 1 — both in the third quarter.
  • When asked if the offense playing in the preseason would have prevented the missed connections, Woods said it probably wouldn't have, as McVay wouldn't have called those plays in games that didn't count.
