VOTE: Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff Limited Jared Goff Jersey , RB Todd Gurley up for weekly awards The Los Angeles Rams put away the Los Angeles Chargers in the Battle for LA behind the dominance of their offense and in doing so have put their offensive stars up for NFL.com’s weekly awards.QB Jared Goff is up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week against New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees and Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. All three had performances that were worthy of the historic designation of being called (looks again) the FedEx Air Player of the Week.Meanwhile, JTG was able to run out the clock against the Chargers which earned enough fantasy points to go with his name recognition to be named the (looks again much more closely) FedEx Ground Player of the Week. He’s up against Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey and Washington RB Adrian Peterson for the always memorable (looks really hard using my eyes with sincere effort) FedEx Ground Player of the Week.These incredibly important awards that definitely represent the value of these players to their fan bases are up for a vote you can participate in! Head over to the NFL’s page for these historic accolades to vote for Jared and JTG and acknowledge FedEx’s existence or whatnot!The FedEx Air and Ground Player of the Week! Feel the excitement!TST roundtable: Should the Los Angeles Rams add another EDGE? What’s Going Well!First, the positives: the Los Angeles Rams are doing well in points per game allowed (6th at 19.8/game), and are still 1st in point differential (+75). They are also generating plenty of pressures, especially from inside.Per @PFF, before playing the Seahawks in Week 5 Orlando Pace Jersey , the combo of Donald and Suh is generating a mind-boggling number of pressures:And, after Week 5, the Rams still lead the league in pressure percentage:What’s, Um, Not Great...So, let’s not get it twisted that the Rams have not been successful where it counts; they have (so far). However Deacon Jones Jersey Salute to Service , getting to the QB and converting those pressures to sacks/losses/long downs, especially from the EDGE positions, is still a concern and should be addressed (either internally or externally).As we sit today, coming up on Week 6 of the NFL season, the Rams sit tied with the Patriots for last in sacks (6) and are dead last in QB hits (15). If they are to get deeper into the playoffs, it is reasonable to expect them to continue pushing for pass-rushing help Authentic Sean Mannion Jersey , especially at the EDGE position. Current Roster SituationThe combo of Samson Ebukam/Matt Longacre is still developing, but not as impactful at this point in the season (1 sack total between them, with Ebukam/Longacre playing 80%/50% of snaps, respectively). The Rams lost hybrid DE/OLB Dominique Easley to a season-ending knee injury, and are still waiting for promising rookie Ogbonnia Okoronkwo to return from his foot injury. That leaves the cupboard a bit bare at one of the most important areas of need. This of course is not a surprise to anyone paying attention, but as we get deeper in the season I believe it’s going to show up on the scoreboard as the Rams play against quick-release QB’s like Drew Brees Limited Aaron Donald Jersey , Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. Summary: the Rams are HOPING to hide this issue as long as they can.The Big Question: What To Do?Should the Rams stand pat and hope Ebukam/Longacre/Okoronkwo/etc. get hot, or should they press the Big Red Button and make a trade/FA signing?Here were the results of our round table:Elijah Kim (@Football_EZK)Sosa Kremenjas (@QBsMVP)brennansmith (@BrennanJSmith)Sean Wilkinson (@Papa_Lurch)go ramsBrandon Bate (@NoPlanB_)Eric Nagel (@Eric_nagel)Skye Sverdlin (@Skyeattolah)joeyaucoin (@LaRamsRamsRams)EddieP (@iAmEddieP_)Hotdaddywags (@hotdaddywags)3k (@3k_)TevinB (@T_Bron)Your ThoughtsWhat do you think?
