It’s time to get real. The Los Angeles Rams were nearly Super Bowl Champions a couple of years and now face an upcoming season that was filled with some questionable moves during the offseason. The Rams recently traded WR Brandin Cooks to the Houston Texans as their draft selections bolstered. They also released Gurley and had to bite the bullet on a horrible contract as McVay did his best to explain why they had to release the fan-favorite. Lastly, Reporter Rich Hammond examined how the Rams six-month spending spree back in 2018 was a complete disastrous move. What is going on with the Rams front office? Well, Colin Cowherd recently spoke about the Rams and dropped the biggest truth bomb on The Herd on what is going on with them.
They paid too much money (for Cooks) and they pay everyone early and fall in love with players. The great personal people fall and LIKE everybody. Even Belichick with Brady, it was a LIKE affair. If Bill O’Brien is the kid whose parents left him the house for the summer and he’s got out of control, The Rams are the guy who LOVES car, and keeps buying cars. He Has a collection of cars and whats to show everyone his cars. Guess what, the minute you drive them off the lot, they are all worth 30% less (in value) They just collect stars.
Remember, the Rams also signed a huge extension with WR Tavon Austin. What happened to him? What about when they extended linebacker Alex Ogletree? It was a $42 million that included $31.4 million in guarantees, $18 million in full guarantees and an $8 million signing bonus. YIKES. Cowherd has a strong point. Los Angeles is falling in love with players and handing them dumb money. We have all these Cars (stars) just to show people. Cowherd also added on another truth bomb.
If you fall in love with cars and keep buying them, they lose 30% when they get off the lot. The Rams and the Texans are doing something I hate in life. They are confusing activity for efficiency. It’s just bad move bad move bad move bad move, trying to follow up on a move that did not work. New rule in the NFL, pay almost nobody big money and never pay anybody except the star QB early.

Even though it is important to keep players happy, you also need to win championships with a smart wallet. Los Angeles could not do anything this offseason because of “falling in love and buying new cars each offseason” What do you think Rams Nation? Is Cowherd speaking the truth?
