Heading into the 2019 NFL season, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ future looked bright. They just signed Nick Foles for $88 million dollars. Foles was expected to be everything the Jaguars needed to make a playoff push and return to their 2017 form. That quickly changed when Foles was nearly immediately injured in week one. After that, rookie Gardner Minshew took over. Although Minshew did very good for a rookie thrown into a bad situation, it still wasn’t enough.
Following a trip to the Super Bowl in 2018, the Rams were set to make another deep playoff push in 2019, or so they thought. The Rams have tried milking all the opportunity they have out of the team that took them to the Super Bowl, while also pushing them against the salary cap barrier.
The Los Angeles Rams came out looking solid this season starting out 3-0. However, they did experience some turbulence dropping three straight afterward. It was a turn of events that led to them landing star cornerback Jalen Ramsey and reigniting their team.
The Los Angeles Rams finally broke their streak of three consecutive losses with a resounding win over the Atlanta Falcons. It was a win they got on the strength of their new-look defense. The 37-10 win in Atlanta was the first for the Rams dating back to 2001.
The Los Angeles Rams land Jalen Ramsey in a huge deal that could revitalize their defense. Los Angeles trades two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, and a fourth-round pick in 2021 to land Ramsey. This comes just a few days after the Rams lost their third straight game and drop to 3-3.
What a game! What a way to open up week four! In what was a back-and-forth shootout last night, the Eagles were the team to come out on top, 34-27, in a thriller. The Eagles ended up finishing the game down to just two cornerbacks, but with just seconds left, backup cornerback Craig James came up with a big play to tip the ball in the air. Nigel Bradham caught the tipped ball for the game-sealing interception.
I share my thoughts on the Jalen Ramsey trade situation, the new era of athletes controlling their own path and Jacoby Brissett. I also share my thoughts on Gardner Minshew, Joe Mixon, and the 2020 NFL QB prospects.
