What’s Going Well!First , the positives: the Los Angeles Rams are doing well in points per game allowed (6th at 19.8/game), and are still 1st in point differential (+75). They are also generating plenty of pressures, especially from inside.Per @PFF, before playing the Seahawks in Week 5, the combo of Donald and Suh is generating a mind-boggling number of pressures:And, after Week 5, the Rams still lead the league in pressure percentage:What’s, Um, Not Great...So Lamarcus Joyner Jersey , let’s not get it twisted that the Rams have not been successful where it counts; they have (so far). However, getting to the QB and converting those pressures to sacks/losses/long downs, especially from the EDGE positions, is still a concern and should be addressed (either internally or externally).As we sit today, coming up on Week 6 of the NFL season, the Rams sit tied with the Patriots for last in sacks (6) and are dead last in QB hits (15). If they are to get deeper into the playoffs, it is reasonable to expect them to continue pushing for pass-rushing help, especially at the EDGE position. Current Roster SituationThe combo of Samson Ebukam/Matt Longacre is still developing, but not as impactful at this point in the season (1 sack total between them Authentic Rodger Saffold Jersey , with Ebukam/Longacre playing 80%/50% of snaps, respectively). The Rams lost hybrid DE/OLB Dominique Easley to a season-ending knee injury, and are still waiting for promising rookie Ogbonnia Okoronkwo to return from his foot injury. That leaves the cupboard a bit bare at one of the most important areas of need. This of course is not a surprise to anyone paying attention, but as we get deeper in the season I believe it’s going to show up on the scoreboard as the Rams play against quick-release QB’s like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. Summary: the Rams are HOPING to hide this issue as long as they can.The Big Question: What To Do?Should the Rams stand pat and hope Ebukam/Longacre/Okoronkwo/etc. get hot, or should they press the Big Red Button and make a trade/FA signing?Here were the results of our round table:Elijah Kim (@Football_EZK)Sosa Kremenjas (@QBsMVP)brennansmith (@BrennanJSmith)Sean Wilkinson (@Papa_Lurch)go ramsBrandon Bate (@NoPlanB_)Eric Nagel (@Eric_nagel)Skye Sverdlin (@Skyeattolah)joeyaucoin (@LaRamsRamsRams)EddieP (@iAmEddieP_)Hotdaddywags (@hotdaddywags)3k (@3k_)TevinB (@T_Bron)Your ThoughtsWhat do you think? What would you do? Hit us up in the comments.Introducing new TST author Brennan Smith I’m happy to announce we’ve got an official (completely unofficial) transaction heading into Week 3 that I’ve filed with the league offices in New York (no I haven’t).We’re adding Brennan Smith to the staff. You may have seen his work before at RamsHerd (RIP) or the Arizona Republic and the Salt Lake Tribune.Absolutely thrilled to bring him on board.Brennan SmithWhere he’s from: I’m from a tiny town (Morgan, Utah) and am currently in Salt Lake City, Utah by way of Tucson, AZ and Phoenix Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , AZ.How he became a Rams fan: As a kid growing up in Utah and then Tucson, AZ, there were teams on the periphery like the Cardinals and Broncos, but no one captured my imagination like the GSOT era and Torry Holt led Rams. I really started following the team in 2001 and attended my first Rams game at Sun Devil Stadium in 2003 when Marc Bulger battled against Emmitt Smith and the Cardinals. What area of the Rams interest him most: I’m most interested in the intersection of college players and the NFL in the draft process.The best thing he’s ever eaten: Recently, it’s a tie between Pretty Bird Nashville hot chicken in SLC and the chile verde burrito at Rosa’s Cafe in Ogden, UT.Join me in welcoming Brennan to the staff!
