Sean McVay on Jared Goff's days as Rams QB: 'There's a lot of times you can smile on'

Sean McVay on Jared Goff's days as Rams QB: 'There's a lot of times you can smile on'

In the weeks and months ahead of the dissolution of quarterback  as the Los Angeles Rams' leading man, much ado was made about coach Sean McVay's less-than-glowing comments regarding his then-franchise QB.On a sleepy, offseason afternoon Thursday, though, McVay looked back fondly on the days of Goff and deemed it unfair to pin the team's recent offensive woes squarely on the shoulders of the quarterback."What I think is important to make sure that I at least want to mention is the amount of good things and really great leadership that he provided since I got here as a head coach," McVay...

Kendall Hinton's QB cameo 'still unreal' to him, but hopes it helps him stick in NFL

Kendall Hinton's QB cameo 'still unreal' to him, but hopes it helps him stick in NFL

 carved out a place in the quirky, unexpected hall of NFL history in 2020 when he played emergency quarterback for an entire game due to COVID-19's impact on the Broncos.Hinton was, in a word, dreadful, but was also placed in an unwinnable situation as a practice squad receiver haphazardly converted to starting quarterback. He completed 1 of his 9 attempts for 13 yards and threw two interceptions, finishing with a passer rating of zero in Denver's Week 12 loss to New Orleans.Looking back, Hinton still can't believe what happened."To be honest with you, we're three or four months out from...

Jets DT Quinnen Williams: 'I’d be disappointed' if traded by New York

The offseason isn't even a month old, and the Jets are set to look dramatically different in 2021 because of their new coaching staff alone. More change could be coming at quarterback, and New York will surely be in the market for upgrades at running back, wide receiver, offensive line and cornerback.Whatever the final roster proves to be, defensive tackle wants to be on it. The No. 3 pick of the 2019 draft has been the subject of , and he reiterated Wednesday that he hopes it is nothing more than talk.

'Hard Knocks' team in 2021? Cowboys, Jaguars among compelling candidates

Hard Knocks enters its 16th season feeling more entrenched than ever in the NFL landscape.After all, if an unprecedented global pandemic that shut down team facilities, eliminated offseason programs and wiped away the preseason wasn't enough to send Hard Knocks on its own version of a (completely understandable!) COVID-19 opt-out, what could move the acclaimed docuseries off its course now?(Don't answer that question. I don't want to know what else could happen. I am not challenging anything or anybody. Leave us alone.)And since Hard Knocks is unstoppable and time is a flat circle, we've...

According to coach Bruce Arians, Fournette nearly didn't make it to the postseason with the club.Following his release from Jacksonville, where he was mostly a workhorse for his first three seasons, Fournette landed in Tampa and shared backfield snaps behind . The latter was clearly the better back for the bulk of the regular season. Through the first 12 weeks of the season, Fournette had 69 rushing attempts for 271 yards and three TDs,...
