(East Los Angeles, CA) November 27, 2021 [Special Note From The Editor]: We are very happy to inform all of our followers that East L.A. Sports Scene Productions and EastLASportsScene.Com are now recognized by the Los Angeles Rams to apply for attending and covering their regular season weekly practices. All practices are held at Cal Lutheran University, located in Thousand Oaks. In due time, we are hoping to be granted credentials to cover the team during one of their home games at So Fi Stadium. Our reporting objective is to give our followers a very good, up-close, and different look at the team through our perspective lens.

{Practice Recap} Yesterday was our first time to observe and experience how the team conducts their practice sessions with accredited media outlets present. We hope you enjoy our photo gallery, player video interviews, and written account of this session in preparation for their game against the Green Bay Packers tomorrow, Sunday, 11/28/21.

The practice session offered us access to film and photograph the team during their stretching exercises and individual portions prior to the official start of the closed segment of the practice. Then, at a prescribed time, ALL media members were then asked to return to the new Rams Media Center and await the next programmed opportunity to proceed with our coverage and stories.

To conclude the media portion of practice, the Rams allowed interviews with the recently acquired All-Pro veterans, Odell Beckham, Jr. and Von MillerJalen Ramsey was also made available.

{Game Background} The NFL’s first expanded 17 games and 18 week season continues onward into Week #12 as the Rams, coming off their 11/21 “Bye” week, prepare to face-off against the ever-dangerous Green Bay Packers on the road. The game will be contested at the storied Lambeau Field with the fervor and the memories of Vince Lombardi still present in their franchise adoring fans. 

The Rams, currently (7-3) in the NFC and in 2nd place behind the Arizona Cardinals (9-2) in the  standings, need this win to keep pace for the coveted seeding position as the playoffs approach. The Rams will need to establish both their passing and running games if, at the minimum, they are to withstand the weather elements at game-time and the crowd environment during the game.

During his press availability in the Rams Media Center, Head Coach Sean McVay had this to say about the day’s practice conditions due to the high winds in the area, and he had this to say,” It kind of forced us to be in a walk-through, above-the-neck setting only, (but) our guys handled it really well.” (On what more he expects to get out of Beckham Jr. and OLB Von Miller) “A lot more hopefully! (OLB) Von (Miller) did a good job. (He) played a lot of snaps. I think he’ll be that much more healthy, that much more fresh coming off the bye and giving his ankle another handful of days to continue to make progress and steps in the right direction without having any setbacks over these last couple of weeks. And then (WR) Odell (Beckham Jr.) just getting more familiar, I mean you look at it – for him to even be able to play in the game against the Niners is an incredible credit to him.”

In a contrasting note of sorts, Rams QB/Matt Stafford has not experienced a winning record against the Packers during his 12 years in the League, going (7-13) for his career total won-loss record against them. But now as a Ram, he can begin a new start, with keen optimism that the strong receiving corps in Kupp, Jefferson, and now Beckham, Jr., will be highly targeted for success and big wins.

And now that All-Pro WR/Odell Beckham, Jr. has had a few weeks to best acclimate himself to his new team, things could become a bit more explosive should he and Stafford find that “golden”chemistry to fire-up the engines to full throttle again. Beckham, Jr. has admitted that one of his poorest games he’s played in the NFL came against the Packers in 2017, when he was a member of the New York Giants. He will be looking for redemption on this return to Lambeau Field.

On defense, All-Pro Aaron Donald is still Aaron Donald, one of the most-feared pass rushers in the game today. And now that All-Pro Linebacker, Von Miller has joined the forefront of the Rams outstanding defensive unit, he too will also be watched on the radar screen to see how much more he can improve his newest teammates through the rest of the season as well as hoping for more “wins” to be placed on their season record. The work for Beckham Jr. and Miller is now in progress with high expectations that the Rams will finish the season in great shape for another Super Bowl run.

Lastly, insert All-Pro Cornerback, Jalen Ramsey into this newest picture and it can only stand to get better for the Rams as they head down this all-important stretch drive of the season.
