Kurt Warner Color Rush Jersey
Well Eric Dickerson Color Rush Jersey , we got a battle on our hands.With our boy Sosa having made the trip from Canada to the confines of the Coli, the Los Angeles Rams are locked in a tight battle with the Philadelphia Eagles tied 13-13 at the half.This game is going to come down to adjustments though that’s an obvious conclusion with the two teams tied. But between the Eagles picking on Rams CB Aqib Talib using WR Alshon Jeffery late and the Rams struggling to pass protect for QB Jared Goff effectively for deeper route combinations, things are going to change in the final 30 minutes of football.Two things from our side’s perspective.One, the Rams leaned very heavily on RB Todd Gurley both on the ground but also as a primary passing target early on in the scripted playcalling. Then, they did not. That’s a thing to monitor.Two, the offensive line , moreso than QB Jared Goff, has experienced the most precipitous decline since the bye week. What has happened? Is it a harbinger of a major impending issue that the Rams have little mitigating strategy for or an extended anomaly? And how does that affect these next two quarters with DL Fletcher Cox remaining a true game-changer by himself?Adjust or die.Our young Canadian boy deserves as much. The Rams added defensive end Dante Fowler via trade on Tuesday. Against the Saints on Sunday, they expect him to hit the ground rushing.“We feel like he’s going to help us, specifically from a rush perspective,” coach Sean McVay told reporters on Wednesday. “Got him in here and we’ll see how quickly he can get up to speed, if he’s going to be able to contribute and help us this weekend. But we’re excited to get Dante here.”The biggest challenge Kurt Warner Color Rush Jersey , obviously, will be getting him quickly comfortable in the Rams’ defense.“He passed his physical and he’s going to — really, today is more of a mental, kind of that above-the-neck approach on a Wednesday for us,” McVay said. “So, he’ll get exposed to a lot of reps. If he’s taking part in it or if he’s standing right there with [defensive line coach] Billy Johnson listening to some of the calls Orlando Pace Color Rush Jersey , the communication. But we anticipate him being able to be involved and kind of, really, we’ll see how he’s able to adjust, how he’s able to absorb that information. But we wanted to get him in here and hopeful that he’s a contributor for us as soon as this weekend against a tough team.”McVay doesn’t personally know much about Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, so the Rams worked hard to find out as much as they could about him.“There’s always a very thorough vetting process that takes place any time that we bring somebody into the building Deacon Jones Color Rush Jersey , whether we’re looking to acquire them or actually acquiring them,” McVay said. “There’s a lot of character references. A lot of coaches around the league that guys that have been in Jacksonville, that have been with him before that we’ve worked with, that spoke in a positive way about Dante. We feel like it was something that we wanted to be able to get him here. Heard nothing but good things as far as just a great kid, works hard, practices the right way Sean Mannion Color Rush Jersey , has great habits. Looking forward to getting to know him a little bit. I don’t really know him — obviously know about him and you’ve seen some of the things that he’s done from a production standpoint. But we feel like with just the amount of resources that we were able to utilize and talk to as far as just the people that could speak on his behalf — people that we really value and take their opinion very seriously — it was good things and it was something we felt like we wanted to do.”Whether the Rams want to keep Fowler around will depend on how he performs in the second half of the season. He’s due to become a free agent in March, and it’s entirely possible that the Rams ultimately will have given up a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick for a short-term rental. Especially if/when Fowler performs in the postseason like he performed in the AFC title game last year, picking up a pair of sacks against the Patriots. The more he does as the games get bigger, the more someone else may decide to offer him a premium on the open market.
