Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford enjoyed starting training camp with his new teammates. “It was great. It was good to just be out there and run around with the guys. Got some good work in. A bunch of stuff to clean up, but it was nice to be out here playing football again, doing it with a bunch of guys.
It was fun,” Stafford said, per Yahoo Sports. Stafford insists the Rams have a talented core as he hopes his team will contend for the Super Bowl this season. “We’ve got a bunch of talented players, both on the offensive side of the ball, but also on defense,” he said.
“They made some plays out there today, made it tough on us in some situations. It’s going to be a great battle all camp, just challenging ourselves to be as good as we can against the defense that was obviously as good as it was last year and is going to be a really good defense again this year.
Both from a personnel point and from a scheme point, it’s a really big challenge for us on offense and just something that’s fun to try and get better each day and work against them”.
The Rams hope Stafford will lead them to the Super Bowl
Stafford, who was selected at No.
1 in the 2009 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions, changed teams for the first this offseason after beining traded to the Rams. 2016 No. 1 pick Jared Goff led the Rams to the Super Bowl in 2019 but the Rams decided to move on from the 26-year-old this offseason.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow insists he has improved his entire game after a horrific knee injury that prematurely ended his 2020 season. “I’ve improved my entire game right now,” Burrow said, via Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
“I’m excited to show all my improvements – deep ball, intermediate, protections, everything. I’m just a much better all-around player. “The biggest thing is getting all my cleats in the ground, both on my back foot and my front foot.
Instead of stepping with my toe and rotating there, I’m stepping with my full foot and not rotating as much. And that’s just allowing me to generate more torque and power in my core and it will translate up to my arm”.
