NFL teams most likely to go from worst to first in 2021:

We have spent a lot of time on analyzing what NFL teams have done this offseason to improve their roster, detailing every single draft pick, discussing the most improved position groups and pointing out the biggest remaining needs for every single squad. Now it’s time to project how these moves will impact the outcome of the 2021 season, in regards to how much the bottom teams have improved and their chances to turn things around.

So here I listed the teams, that just finished fourth in their respective division, and ranked them based on the likelihood of winning it this year. I will describe the team itself, including some of the changes on the roster and coaching staff, talk about the challenges they will face inside their division and take a look at the schedule a little bit, in order to determine their chances of hosting a playoff game come next January.

MATTHEW STAFFORD TRADE SHIFTS FOCUS TO SEAN MCVAY! Los Angeles Rams Trade Breakdown

Furthermore, the Rams still owe Jared Goff $22.2 million in 2021 and will pick up the remaining two years on Stafford’s contract for a total of $43 million. After trading for Stafford, the Rams will have potentially gone seven consecutive seasons without a first round pick.

Clearly the Rams are “all-in” in 2021 which has been par for the course since General Manager Les Snead and Sean McVay have began working together in L.A. However, it was the battery of Snead and McVay should not (will not) continue to receive a pass for the Rams’ struggles. Snead’s aggressiveness in terms of acquiring veteran talent via trade and willingness to dole out exorbitant contracts has put the Rams in a challenging cap situation particularly with the salary cap being reduced in 2021. McVay on the other has been insulated from criticism for the most part considering Goff’s struggles. However, a close examination of his situational play-calling and use of personnel reveals that he has not adjusted effectively enough since his meteoric rise to the head coach rank.

CPGM Juice and Drew delve into the blockbuster trade from the perspective of the Rams focusing primarily on: Stafford, McVay and the future of the Rams front office/roster.
