The Rams, to put it politely, are screwed

In retrospect, it turns out that moment when the Los Angeles Rams ran onto the field at the Super Bowl earlier this year wasn’t just a rung on the ladder — it was the top, that tiny platform where you’re not supposed to stand. And now the Rams have pitched off the other side of that very tall, very rickety ladder, and it’s a long way down.

Re: The Rams, to put it politely, are screwed

Goff, meanwhile, signed the richest guaranteed-contract deal in NFL history — a deal that doesn’t even kick in until next year — and yet he’s got more than a few observers wondering if last year was a fluke rather than a harbinger. He’s down in all major statistical categories, including completion percentage, touchdowns, touchdown percentage, yards per attempt, and quarterback rating. It’s like Goff and McVay caught the NFL napping in 2018 and punched the league in the face, but the league woke up and punched back hard.

And then there’s Gurley, who seemed to be the kind of unicorn running back you’d buck conventional wisdom to draft early … but has ended up a case study in why conventional wisdom might just be wise after all. For a couple years, he was as good as you could be in the NFL, leading the league in (non-kicker) scoring, touchdowns and all-purpose yards in 2017. He signed a deal making him — see if this sounds familiar — the highest-paid running back in NFL history back in 2018. But now he’s apparently either in the early stages of arthritis or, best case, just dealing with a steady age-related decline in production — at age 25.
