Rams coach Sean McVay was asked at a press conference today whether it was hard to part with the No. 23 overall pick for WR Brandin Cooks. "If you told me I'd be getting that player at 23, I'd be throwing a pool party. And I don't even have a pool."

The number of 1pm ET (or earlier) games for west coast teams is a frequently a concern. This season, the Rams have 2, 49ers and Seahawks have 3, the Chargers have 4, and the Raiders have 5. As for Mountain time zone teams, the Cardinals and Broncos each have 4.

Another way the league evened out the schedule pain is back-to-back-to-back road games (3 consecutive). In 2017 there were 12. This season there are 6. (This includes neutral site venues as road games.) Of the 6 three-game road sequences, two teams own 2 of them if you consider neutral site (London/Mexico City) games as road games: Rams and Chargers. The Ravens and Saints own the other two. The Rams second 3-game road sequence includes their Mexico City game, but it's interrupted by their bye. The Chargers actually have an *uninterrupted 4-game road sequence*, counting their London game, which (strictly speaking) includes two 3-game road sequences.

Rams coach Sean McVay said the plan with Tavon Austin is to "develop him as a receiver, where we're playing him in the slot, we're playing him outside." Obviously, opportunities will be scarce. McVay is happy for the possibility of a healthy offseason program/training camp for Austin.

Michael Brockers, on what he likes about Ndamukong Suh: "His tenacity. I don't want to say ‘nasty,' I don't want to put that out there, but he's a ferocious player, man. He plays like that every snap of the ball, and I think that's what I like about him the most is his attitude about the game. Defensive linemen, we're not supposed to be nice."
