Bonsignore: Rams send positive message, even after tough loss

The Rams locker room was barely open a minute or two Sunday after a gut wrenching 27-20 loss to Washington when Robert Woods motioned for reporters to come talk to him. If anyone had reason to hide from the media or brush them off or figure out ...

    Meet this week’s Rams opponent: Washington

    Kirk Cousins’ first game without Sean McVay didn’t go very well. McVay, credited during his three-year stint as Washington’s offensive coordinator with helping to develop Cousins as a productive quarterback, has moved on to coach the Rams. Cousins and Washington suffered a rough 30-17 loss to Philadelphia in Sunday’s season opener. Cousins, who had the third-most passing yards in the NFL last season, completed 23 of 40 attempts for 240 yards, one...

    It’s back to normal for the Rams and Aaron Donald, who likely will play Sunday

    THOUSAND OAKS >> No dramatic moment, no speech, no loud applause. The Rams simply conducted their defensive meetings Monday with Aaron Donald in attendance, and that normalcy had to feel superb. Donald, the Rams’ star lineman who ended his six-week contract holdout Saturday, got back to work at team headquarters. The plan, according to Coach Sean McVay, is for Donald to be on the field when the Rams resume practice Wednesday and when they play Washington on Sunday at the...

    Defense, Jared Goff lead Rams to romp over Colts in Sean McVay’s debut

    LOS ANGELES >> This is the city of Hollywood reinvention, a land of second chances. So the Rams vanished for a while, allowed the stench of a 4-12 season to clear out and returned, shockingly, as an entertaining team. The plot twist left mouths agape at the Coliseum. The Rams, who left the field eight months ago to a mixture of fan apathy and disgust, wowed the crowd and made Coach Sean McVay look brilliant in his debut, as the Rams excelled in all phases of the game and beat...

    Jared Goff and the Rams delivered more than a win on Sunday, they created hope

    LOS ANGELES >> Just before Rams quarterback Jared Goff disappeared into the Coliseum tunnel late Sunday afternoon to celebrate his first win as an NFL quarterback, he paused, peeked over to a hundred or so fans shouting his name from the stands and raised his right arm to the sky. The roar that immediately erupted was unlike anything we’ve heard from the Coliseum for an NFL team in what seems like forever. Not two minutes before, 31-year-old Rams head coach Sean...

    Rams, Sean McVay take a knee and everything else they want vs. Colts

    LOS ANGELES >> His play-calling was measured, effective and, at times, even inspired. At the end, it was something else completely, something shocking after witnessing the Rams mostly depress all of last season. Sean McVay’s play-calling, to cap his head-coaching debut Sunday, was celebratory. He ordered his team to assemble in victory formation and his backup quarterback to take a clock-emptying knee … still with two minutes...

    Without Donald, Rams defense still dominates Colts

    LOS ANGELES >> As the stalemate continued through July and August and into September, the nightmarish possibility loomed like a dark cloud over the franchise, dominating every conversation and begging the one lingering question the Rams hoped they’d never have to confront. What would the defense look like without Aaron Donald? Turns out, a whole lot better than you might think. By the time Donald’s months-long holdout saga came to its official conclusion...

    Rams’ Cooper Kupp makes big impact in NFL debut

    LOS ANGELES >> Rams receiver Cooper Kupp caught his first NFL touchdown pass and quickly flipped the ball to an official. So there’s no souvenir, but at this rate, Kupp’s trophy case will quickly fill up. Kupp, a third-round pick in this year’s draft, thrived in training camp and preseason games, and showed no drop-off Sunday in regular-season debut against Indianapolis, when he caught four passes for a team-high 76 yards and also caught the only touchdown...

    Can Sammy Watkins be a Grade-A WR for Rams?

    Sammy Watkins had Jared Goff in one ear, and Sean McVay in the other. Sammy, what do you run on this play? How about this one? How about that first play, but from this other formation? “After the first day,” Watkins said, “I was like, ‘OK, now they’re just trying to see how much I’m studying,’ so I had to overstudy and be on point.” Nobody is taking chances. This budding relationship between Watkins and the Rams is too...
