The Rams are the trendy pick to win the Super Bowl. They have among the best Super Bowl odds, somewhere around 10-1 or 12-1, up there with the Patriots, Steelers, Eagles and Vikings.

The Rams feature the offensive player of the year in Todd Gurley, the defensive player of the year in Aaron Donald and the coach of the year in Sean McVay.

They added Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib, Brandin Cooks and Ndamukong Suh.

On paper, they definitely look the part.

The Rams, though, are holding their ears and going, “La la la la.”

“We have to be careful not to buy into what the media is saying about us,” defensive lineman Michael Brockers told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “A lot of people are picking us, but we have to focus on us — do our due diligence and like coach [McVay] says, ‘Every day we have to be better.'”

  1. The are where the seahawks were a few years ago, a talented team with some stars still playing on rookie contracts.

  2. Brockers, Suh, and Donald are a formidable d-line. That defense has the making of something special if they can play together.

    Offense needs some improvement on the front line and continued growth from the young WR core. We all know Gurley and the playcalling is elite.

  3. “Hype?” You only won the division because the Seahawks kicker blew 3 wins for them and went out in the 1st round of the playoffs.

    Rams will be lucky to get above .500 this year now that teams know how to defend them.

  4. If Earl won’t play/report without a new extended contract….why should the leagues best Defensive player show up in LA? Potential for problems all over this roster.

    And yet the Seahawks still won’t beat them.

  6. Haha…I watched the highlights of the beat down in Seattle 100 times this offseason. Never gets old. Twelve is going to have a whole new meaning in Seattle this season. Enjoy 4-12.

  7. Dont get fitted for those SB rings just yet…

    Everything about this Rams team screams Dream Team 2018 to me. This fool talking about hype and its not even training camp yet.

  8. “You only won the division because the Seahawks kicker blew 3 wins for them”

    Yeah, the Seahawks kicker would’ve made up that 42-7 butt kicking you took at home.

    If anyone knows how to play the Rams, you will let Pete Carroll know? He’s never been able to figure it out.

  9. Although I’m a Steelers and Skins fan, the Rams are exciting to watch come back from nothing. Too bad Sean McVay had to leave DC to succeed. I’m happy for him.

  10. @seahawkboymike: Yeah, the rest of the league can use Seattle’s blueprint on how to defend the Rams. Oh, wait… that’s actually a very, very bad idea.
