Mayor of Inglewood, James T Butts says adding a basketball arena for the Clippers could delay the opening of the Rams football stadium in Inglewood by at least 18 months. "To introduce another element in it would require city approval and an EIR (environmental impact report) and that would set the project back by 18 months to two years, Butts told ESPN. "To add a basketball arena in there would stop everything right now."

Rams' Goff leveraging noted QB-training facility

New Rams OC and former Falcons QB coach Matt LaFleur doesn't think he'll ever get over that Super Bowl loss. "I was grieving for a couple days, there's no doubt about it." On the criticism aimed towards Kyle Shanahan's playcalling: "I don't second-guess anything he did for one second. That's how we played all year long. We were aggressive. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. And that's the way it is. But I think it's funny when people criticize him. We put up ungodly numbers."

Matt LaFleur, the Rams' new offensive coordinator, started on Monday and is still sifting through all the information. But he says the scheme, which he'll coordinate with Sean McVay on, "truly will be a system that is going to marry the run with the pass. I know we both believe in that, and the benefits that it gives, really, not only the quarterback, but all the players on our team."

Post coming tomorrow -- 20 schemes from the 2016 NFL season that I would "steal" for my own playbook. A mix of zone/power run schemes, pass concepts, RPO's, defensive pressure and coverage. Here's the Rams/Gregg Williams' Cover 3 Invert. Show Double A gap pressure (B), roll the Nickel (N) to the deep middle of the field and drop the safeties (SS, FS) to the sticks. Really like this coverage in 3rd and 7-to-10 or 3rd and 11-plus situations over playing a straight two-deep zone shell. Movement and disguise. Force the ball underneath. And tackle.
