How the Los Angeles Rams’ youth movement is bucking the NFL trend

How the Los Angeles Rams’ youth movement is bucking the NFL trend

Los Angeles Rams, NFL
If there are two things we have been told about the millennial generation, it is these: 1) they are somehow the cause of every problem across the globe; and 2) the entirety of their nourishment comes from eating avocado toast at every meal. While the avocado toast intake might be slightly exaggerated – although please understand that avocado toast is truly delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner – the claim by olds that millennials are a drain on society is clearly not true. We know this because the Los Angeles Rams, coached by 31-year-old Sean McVay, are a surprising 7-2 so far this season and have the highest-scoring offense in the NFL. Any team would love to be ruined like that by a young whippersnapper. There is no way to overstate how well McVay has done in his first season o

Ravens TE Benjamin Watson acknowledges that he thought Achilles injury might end his career

Baltimore Ravens, NFL
Benjamin Watson, the oldest player on the Ravens roster, ranks second on the offense in catches (38) and third in receiving yards (261). But the 36-year-old tight end acknowledges that he was unsure whether he would even be able to play again. Watson's first year with the team ended prematurely when he ruptured his right Achilles tendon in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions on Aug. 27, 2016. And during the rehabilitation process, Watson allowed his mind to entertain the thought of not returning. “There were times in that training room over there when I felt like I don't know if I'm ever going to be able to play in the NFL again at a level that I'm satisfied with or at all,” he said before.....

Buffalo Bills, NFL
(The Sports Xchange) - The Buffalo Bills announced a change at quarterback following a blowout loss, benching Tyrod Taylor to start rookie Nathan Peterman on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Coach Sean McDermott made the decision Wednesday, three days after Taylor was replaced by Peterman with 4:53 remaining in the 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints that dropped the Bills to 5-4. Taylor completed 9 of 18 passes for 56 yards and an interception with a 33.6 passer rating before being benched, which drew cheers from the few remaining home fans. Peterman, a fifth-round pick, led the Bills on a six-play, 75-yard drive ending in a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Nick O'Leary in Sunday's..... Story continues
Bruce Arians: Blaine Gabbert isn’t bad, he was just “on really [expletive] teams”

Bruce Arians: Blaine Gabbert isn’t bad, he was just “on really [expletive] teams”

NFL
Cardinals third-string quarterback Blaine Gabbert may have to start this week because of injuries to Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is saying the Cardinals will be fine with Gabbert — and using colorful language to do so. Arians said Gabbert’s struggles throughout his NFL career haven’t been Gabbert’s fault but the fault of the teams he was on. “He was on really shi–y teams,” Arians said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. Arians is right about that: Gabbert was drafted by the Jaguars in 2011 and spent three years in Jacksonville, then was traded to San Francisco and played three years for the 49ers. He was never on a team with a winning record, and that was far from only his fault: Last year the 49ers went 1-4 while Gabbert was starting and 1-10 with Colin

Biggest 2018 Offseason Free-Agency Decisions of Oakland Raiders

NFL, Oakland Raiders
There's no question the coaching staff will expect Conley to start at cornerback for the 2018 season. Who's going to fill out the position alongside him? The injury bug bit cornerback David Amerson—and so have opposing wide receivers in 2017. He's made a few plays but allowed several on the perimeter as well. The fifth-year veteran's contract will take a $6 million cap hit in 2018, per Spotrac. The front office could release him and save the cap space without owing him for the remaining three years of his deal. Altogether, McKenzie would save $14.5 million if he decides to part ways with Smith and Amerson, which stings considering both cornerbacks signed their contracts months apart during the.....
