They’re off to the franchise’s best start since 1969, and they have a 3½-game lead in the NFC West with stellar play on both sides of the ball.Now imagine them with another pass rusher.That’s what Sean McVay and the Rams’ front office are doing while they attempt to bolster their spectacular start with e[url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Lamarcus-Joyner-Jersey]Lamarcus Joyner Jersey Black Friday[/url] ven more talent before the trade deadline Tuesday.In particular, the Rams acknowledge they are seeking an edge rusher to join Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh on a solid defense that could be formidable with even more pressure on the quarterback.“That could be something that we definitely would look into, based on the availability of some of the players that we’ve looked into,” McVay said of the market for edge rushers. “That would be, yes, a possibility.”The Rams are tied for eighth in the NFL with 22 sacks, but 10 of those came from Donald, who has been perhaps even more disruptive in his first season since winning the AP’s Defensive Player of the Year award in 2017. Donald sacked Aaron Rodgers twice and delivered four quarterback hits during Los Angeles’ 29-27 win over Green Bay on Sunday.Suh and do-everything linebacker Cory Littleton also have three sacks apiece this season, but general manager Les Snead would love to add an edge rusher to take pressure off a secondary that’s missing injured cornerback Aqib Talib until at least late November.“I’ve had a couple different discussions with Les with regards to some things that we feel like might be able to upgrade our team,” McVay said. “If anything ends up going through or not [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Pharoh-Cooper-Jersey]https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Pharoh-Cooper-Jersey[/url] , not really sure. But there are some discussions.”COACHING CAROUSELMcVay’s personnel concerns aren’t limited to his roster, either.He realizes the Rams’ remarkable success grabs the attention of teams looking to poach his assistant coaches. After all, he has only been in charge for 24 regular-season games, and he already lost offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur and quarterbacks coach Greg Olson last winter.So McVay wasn’t surprised when two of his top offensive assistants were immediately linked to the Cleveland Browns. Quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor and passing game coordinator/tight ends coach Shane Waldron both featured in immediate speculation about candidates to replace Hue Jackson in the future.“Yeah, I’m aware,” McVay said with a laugh. “I’m sitting there watching when they made the change, and the first two guys’ names they mentioned, I’m thinking, ‘Man, I love these guys. I don’t want to lose them, though.'”McVay was the Washington Redskins’ tight ends coach just five years ago [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Mark-Barron-Jersey]Mark Barron Color Rush Jersey[/url] , so he is eager to help any assistant in his career pursuits — after the season.“What those guys will do is they’ll continue to work exactly like they have, doing an excellent job coaching and being the best Rams coaches they can be,” McVay said. “Down the line … if that’s something that they have goals to be able to try to achieve, then we’ve got to continue to have success as a team. There’s nothing more exciting than to see people get a chance to grow, if that’s something that they feel like is best for them.”But McVay was more than a bit bemused when his own name immediately showed up in online speculation from one oddsmaker.“I couldn’t be happier to be here with our players, with this organization, working for a great owner in Mr. (Stan) Kroenke,” said McVay, who is 19-5 halfway through his second season. “Unless they decide they want to make a change, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”COMEBACK KUPPJared Goff completed just 11 passes to wide receivers during the Rams’ victory over Green Bay, but one of his favorite targets could be back Sunday when Los Angeles visits the New Orleans Saints.Cooper Kupp is “looking good” after missing the past two games with a left knee injury [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Rob-Havenstein-Jersey]Rob Havenstein Jersey[/url] , McVay said.“I think there’s a very good chance that he’s going to be ready to go this week,” McVay said. “I think if we really wanted to press it, he probably could have played (against the Packers).”Kupp has 30 receptions for 438 yards and a team-leading five touchdowns despite playing extensively in only five games. He left the field early in the Rams’ win at Denver on Oct. 14 after a horse-collar tackle by Broncos safety Darian Stewart.Kupp had 62 catches for a team-leading 869 yards as a rookie last season. The Los Angeles Rams won their first contest against the Seattle Seahawks to go 5-0. The Seahawks had dropped to 2-3. Entering this week’s contest the Rams had stayed mostly hot, entering at 8-1 while the Seahawks have fought to improve to 4-4.A win for the Rams could essentially clinch things in the NFC West as the Rams would be in a very comfortable situation.Here are the Seahawks that will do their best to prevent an early division crown heading back to Los Angeles.QB Russell WilsonThe Seahawks are led by Wilson. When the Rams played Seattle in Week 5, Wilson was struggling. At that point, he had not shown his typical self. The Rams game was his best game to date and since then, Wilson had a bit of a hot streak. After posting the best QBR of the season in Week 5, Wilson went on to have two very strong games, posting a 98.9 QBR two weeks ago. For the season, Wilson has thrown for 1,791 yards with a 66.1% completion percentage. He boasts a 18-5 TD:INT ratio while also having 118 rushing yards for the season.WR David MooreWho? Oh the guy that scored two touchdowns against the Rams last contest. Moore is a former seventh round pick that started to hit his stride after that breakout performance against the Rams. Moore has had eight receptions [url=https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Cory-Littleton-Jersey]Cory Littleton Jersey Black Friday[/url] , 160 yards, and two touchdowns since the last contest bringing his season totals to 13 receptions on 21 targets for 237 yards and four touchdowns.EDGE Frank ClarkClark comes into the contest as the sack leader for the Seahawks with 7.5 so far. In addition, Clark has also intercepted a pass while forcing three fumbles. In the first Rams-Seahawks tilt, Clark had two tackles, including a tackle for loss, and a pass defended. The Rams offensive line will have their hands full with Clark as they look to neutralize him like they mostly did in the last contest.RB Mike DavisWith some injury concerns to Chris Carson, there’s a chance that Mike Davis will be the lead back on Sunday. Davis had actually scored in the last contest against the Rams and helped with a long 37-yard rush. For the season, Davis has 288 rushing yards and three touchdowns. LB Bobby WagnerWagner leads the Seahawks in tackles while also having the most passes defended. Against the Rams in Seattle, Wagner had eight total tackles. For the season Wagner has 52 total tackles and hopes to have a better effort against Todd Gurley as Gurley had rushed for three touchdowns.
