The Los Angeles Rams are looking to improve on their 3rd place finish from the 2019 season as the 9-7 record might not be enough to make the playoffs in 2020 even with the addition of a playoff team in each conference. They will have to do it without Gurley as Darrell Henderson will be the featured back. Henderson has already gotten some criticism from fans leading to the new season. The NFC West is filled with so much talent as the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco can all easily make a run this upcoming season. Do the Rams stand a chance? Well according to Seahawks player Bobby Wagner, Los Angeles will not stand a chance as Seattle will run away from the division in 2020. Here’s what linebacker Wagner had to say about the division on ESPN First Take.
“I feel really confident. Obviously, Russell [Wilson] is an amazing quarterback; the things that he does on the field are just amazing. Like you said, he’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in our game,” Wagner said. “We’re confident on that side. I feel like from the defensive standpoint, there’s a lot of room for improvement. We have to play a little bit better. I feel like if we make those changes and make those improvements, I still feel like we’ll be the team to beat.”
Wagner went on to talk more about the NFC West and how winning the title is something the Seahawks Nation should feel very confident in.
“First, we’ve got to win the NFC West, which I feel like we’re confident we’re gonna do, and then we move on from there. Those guys have great teams but at the end of the day, it’s just paper. You’ve got to prove it on the field.”
Luckily for the Los Angeles Rams, they have taken care of the Seahawks seven of the past ten matchups. Seattle should not be the biggest problem for Los Angeles. The biggest concern is winning on the road as both Seattle and San Francisco finished with a 7-1 record and make the playoffs. As for the Rams, they finished with a 4-4 record on the road in 2019. Do you think Bobby Wagner has a point? Can Seattle run away with the NFC West?
