The Los Angeles Rams decided to return an offensive lineman to the 2020 season as they reached out to Left Tackle Andrew Whitworth for a 3-year deal with the club. Whitworth wanted to return back to Los Angeles as it was a perfect contract for both parties. It was the perfect move for the Rams as Whitworth has been the veteran key for the team and can still teach the young lineman the ins and outs of helping the line down the road. This will be Whitworth’s 15th season in the NFL as the 38-year old lineman is ready for another year. Via Rams Wire: Whitworth recently joined a conference call and was asked if he had a new favorite new logo for the Rams and whether he’s thought about the redesign much.
Whitworth was not the first Ram player to talk about the new logo as Austin Blythe already had his surprising take on it. Here’s what Big Whit had to say about the new logo and redesign.
“I love ball so much that I don’t really think about what I’m wearing,” Whitworth said. “I think it’s great. It’s a new brand. Anytime you have a new brand, there’s people that are going to be excited about it, and there’s going to be people that don’t like it. But over time, I think that stuff just goes away. It’s something to have an opinion about and then you get used to it – it becomes your new normal. If you really look back at new franchises or new teams that come along with new uniforms, there’s always something about it. There’s always something that people don’t like or complain about and then all of a sudden, it kind of goes away.”
Los Angeles fans quickly jumped on the new logo giving it horrible feedback daily until Kevin Demoff finally gave a public statement about the new logo. Whitworth compared the “mob mentality” to another professional star shoe design. Does anybody remember when Steph Curry released his the Curry 2 Low Chef? Here’s what Whitworth had to say about the comparison.
“The latest I can really think of is maybe when Steph Curry had his shoe come out,” he said. “I remember there was a lot of junk about that – about how people didn’t like it or whatever. That’s kind of died and gone away now. But the reality is I think it’s great. I think it gives an energy, a new vibe, a new stadium and a new environment and new logo and I think it’ll be fun. It’ll be about how we produce on the football field that’ll make people fall in love with it.”
Based on Demoff’s response to the fans on Friday, it is highly unlikely the Rams will be changing the new logo. I have a good feeling they are waiting for the ugly feedback to finally die out and can impress the new logo with the Rams. What are your thoughts Rams Nation?
