What a great way to ring in a new era of Rams football, paying homage to the past while recognizing that the future is bright for the franchise.
By the way, the iconic Dickerson glasses were a nice touch.
Last season, Los Angeles had the No.1 defense in the NFL. While the Rams have lost key contributors to this cause, such as coordinator Brandon Staley and defensive backs John Johnson III and Troy Hill, they still have a locking corner to Jalen Ramsey and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron. Donald in the front.
What should really help LA improve in 2021 is that their offense takes a huge step forward. Head coach Sean McVay is already one of the brightest minds on this side of the ball in professional football, but Jared Goff’s move to Matthew Stafford as quarterback is bound to be a resounding success.
Despite playing in the NFL’s top division, NFC West, Stafford gives the Rams the top QB game they’ve been missing in recent years with Goff under center.
But that’s not to deny the impact that the hasty attack on LA can have. Despite being on a backfield committee as a rookie, Akers made the most of his chances.
Akers was the catalyst for the Rams’ 30-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Wild Card weekend, rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown to go with two receptions for 45 yards. He followed it with 90 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round.
With a much better passing game to complement him and a full year of the McVay system under his belt, Akers is set for a real Year 2 breakthrough. Fans will likely be delighted to see him play this year, especially when he’s running. for touchdowns with this vintage booty.
