Will Jeff Fisher and his perpetually close-but-not-quite-playoff-team Rams thrive in LA?
Both running the ball (with Todd Gurley of course) and defending against the run (with a defensive line lead by Aaron Donald) are current strengths.
The bold move to trade up to get Jared Goff at QB in the draft certainly takes aim at the greatest relative weakness of the Rams at present, the passing game. The Sam Bradford experiment did not work. Neither did the revolving door that saw several quarterbacks take meaningful snaps in recent seasons. If the Goff move pays dividends sooner rather than later – which is probably not terribly like – the Rams could rise above mediocrity quickly. More likely, especially in a division where you have to play four games against the Cardinals and Seahawks every year, this will happen more slowly if at all.
