Jalen Ramsey answers if he, teammates are 'panicking' over Rams' poor start to year

Los Angeles Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey doesn't appear to be too concerned by his team's poor start to the year. The Rams, who are the reigning NFL champions, are entering Week 6 with a 2-3 record. The Rams offense hasn't shined so far, and neither has their star defense.
“I mean, if you have two bad weeks of your life at home out of 56 weeks, would you panic?” Ramsey told reporters on Friday. “Would you? Yeah, we got a long season to go. We got 12 games to go. Hopefully it is, but this might not be the only time that we lose two games in a row.
Hopefully it is, but it might not be. You know what I mean? We got a long season to play, so I don’t know. I kind of don’t get it like, the narrative of like, ‘Oh, we should be panicking or like, we’re just that bad or something right now.’ I don’t get it personally, because like everybody knows it’s a long season.
So I don’t really get that. But I mean, we kind of just leave that to like the media, social media, whoever wants to run with that narrative, right? Like, yeah, I don’t know. We kind of don’t think about that.
You saw undefeated teams last year that [were] losing the first round of the playoffs. So like, it doesn’t really matter what’s going on. Every week is a new week. We got to keep going. It’s any given Sunday in the NFL.
It’s a long season ahead. We’ve got 12 games left”.
Ramsey and company are hoping to turn the page this week
In Week 3, the Rams suffered a 22-10 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys. This Sunday, the Rams are again playing in Los Angeles.
At SoFi Stadium, the Rams will host the Carolina Panthers, who have just one win and four losses. Playing the weak Panthers team might be just what the Rams need now. The Panthers will be without their starting quarterback Baker Mayfield as PJ Walker is set to start against the Rams.
The Panthers are considered as one of the worst teams in the NFL and the Rams will probably try to use that matchup to lift their confidence levels. It remains to be seen if the Rams can beat the Panthers and improve to 3-3.
