There is finally professional football back in Los Angeles, California and the hometown fans are pumped. After 22 long years the Rams have decided to make the trip back to their home in LA. The LA market has long awaited the return of there beloved Rams and in the year 2016 they will get there wish. Although for the first few years they will have to share the facility and stadium with USC the college team in LA. The players and fans are both excited to get this season started and to bring a much needed championship back to the city of angels.
The buzz surrounding this years team has never been bigger either. They moved up in this year's draft to take QB Jared Goff as the number one pick in the draft. Then they have the raining rookie of the year coming back at running back in Todd Gurley which is now on everyone is the leagues radar. After all this they have been selected this year to be on HBO networks hit show Hard Knocks. The show features the team throughout there training camp and films them form the field to back at home. So when I say all eyes are on the Rams truly all eyes are on this team right now.
Now that the Rams are back in LA there fans are going to be expecting wins and for there new but old team to perform at a high level. I am sure the transition from St. Louis to California is going to be a big time adjustment but these players seem to be ready for the challenge. The Rams will have to perform in the grueling NFC West conference that just seems to be getting better and better each year. They have to play the Seahawks and Cardinals twice a year which in my opinion are two of the top 5 teams in the NFL. The Rams have lost some key players but if they can keep there core group healthy the sky is the limit for this young and talented team.
For now the Rams have the full support of the local LA fans and all the star power that goes with it. Even in an episode of Hard Knocks famous rappers School Boy Q and Kendrick Lamar stop by practice to hang with the team. I am sure the stars will be all around this team and if they win the perks could be endless. So far the Rams and the LA fans are all happy and really looking forward to the start of the 2016 season. There has not been pressure on the Rams like this since the days of the greatest show on turf in 1999.
