Rams’ Sean McVay says goodbye to Jared Goff with a ‘smile’

Sean McVay bluntly criticized Jared Goff during the season, let him twist in the wind during the playoffs, then urged the Rams’ front office to trade him away. But when it came time for the coach to explain his breakup with the quarterback, McVay softened his tone and chose to recall “a lot of things you can smile on,” like the Rams’ 2018 Super Bowl run, three playoff appearances in four years, and Goff’s two Pro Bowl seasons. “All I can go back to (is) appreciation for the times we did have, an...

Rams’ Raheem Morris has higher goal for No. 1 defense

The hardest part of Raheem Morris’ new job as Rams defensive coordinator is the most basic. Don’t make Mom mad. A New Jersey native who coached 18 NFL seasons in Tampa, Washington and Atlanta, Morris finds himself waking up in L.A. at 2:30 a.m. while his body clock adjusts, and getting yelled at by his mother for messing up their phone schedule. “By the time you’re ready to call them, they’re asleep,” he said. The rest of Morris’ new life is no easier. Hired Jan. 21 to replace Brandon Staley, Mo...

For Rams’ Aaron Donald, the real Big Game is a year from now

Aaron Donald reminded everyone listening Sunday that he has an all-consuming passion for the Super Bowl. Just, maybe, not for Sunday’s Super Bowl. “I’ll probably watch a little of it, not too much,” the Rams defensive tackle said a few hours before the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicked off at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. “I think it’s going to be a fun game to watch. But if it ain’t me playing in, my team, I don’t care too much about it.” Next year’s Super Bowl, to be played ...

Rams’ trade brings Sean McVay new QB and new pressure

Sean McVay laughed one day last fall when a writer suggested he’s now a “veteran” coach. “I don’t know that that’s the case,” McVay interrupted. “I might feel like I’m 85, but …” The NFL doesn’t define when a coach officially goes from spiky-haired wunderkind to grizzled veteran, and it’s understandable if McVay doesn’t think he’s there yet as a 35-year-old who just completed his fourth season on the L.A. sideline. But there’s another stage in a coaching career that he definitely has reached, on...

Rams’ big play to get Matthew Stafford reshapes the offense

Matthew Stafford has always been known for how hard and far he can throw a football. He’s a gunslinger, strong-armed and dangerous. Dangerous to foes, sometimes to friends. The story goes that Detroit Lions receivers cranked up the Jugs machine to practice catching high-velocity passes without snapping off fingers, only to conclude Stafford threw faster than the apparatus. Before he had begun college at Georgia, draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. saw that arm in action and famously predicted (accuratel...

Whicker: Rams use selective memory in deciding Jared Goff was the problem

Before they’d unpacked all the boxes from St. Louis, the Rams used the first pick of the 2016 draft to select Jared Goff. They gave Tennessee six draft choices in exchange. One of them became Derrick Henry, two-time NFL rushing champion. Only 17 months ago the Rams gave Goff a four-year, $134 million contract, without blinking. Only four months ago Goff hurried the Rams to 28 consecutive points to take the lead at Buffalo, a lead the defense couldn’t protect. Only two months ago the Rams went to...

Alexander: Rams cut their losses quickly and decisively in swap of QBs

You can’t say the Rams don’t move swiftly and decisively. As for effectively? We’ll see. Two summers ago, coming off a Super Bowl appearance – albeit an offensively flaccid one against the Patriots – they gave Jared Goff a huge contract extension, four years, $134 million all told and a little over $110 million of that guaranteed. Saturday night, having judged that the offense under Goff likely wasn’t going to get appreciably better, they cut their losses. Goff, plus a third-round pick in 2021 a...

Rams acquire Matthew Stafford, trading Jared Goff to Detroit

The Rams wanted a new quarterback. And they wanted him now. They got him Saturday night, moving quickly and aggressively to replace Jared Goff with Matthew Stafford as the Rams and Detroit Lions agreed to swap quarterbacks in a trade that also costs L.A. its 2022 and 2023 first-round draft picks and this year’s third-rounder. The trade, first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, won’t become official until the NFL’s new league year begins March 17. But it’s done, bringing a swift end to the intrigu...
