The offseason for the Los Angeles Rams continues to take shape. The Hotel California brings you six stories from the week that was.

Wade Phillips Brings New Scheme

Defense has been this teams calling card, and it has been well documented that the hire of Wade Phillips as the defensive coordinator, he will also be bringing a new defensive scheme to Los Angeles. How will Los Angeles look shifting from the 4-3 defense to a 3-4?

Rams Need A Starter At Back Up

For better and for worse, Los Angeles will find out what the have in Jared Goff. For better and for worse, 2017 will also offer a referendum on just what value that trade for the opportunity to draft Goff means for the near and distant future of Rams football. Bottom line, Los Angeles needs a qualified, bona fide starter at the number two spot on the QB depth chart.

Rams Awarded Picks

This past Friday, the NFL awarded teams with their compensatory draft selections for the 2017 draft, including the Los Angeles Rams. How will that affect the team? Contributor Brandon Fowler weighs in.

Unis Get A New Look In L.A.

One story that got a lot of attention last season, at least off the field, were the uniforms the team would wear in their first season back in Los Angeles. 2017 will look different in more ways than one. That’s a very good thing.

Coming And Going in Los Angeles

With free agency right around the corner of this offseason, the Los Angeles Rams will be forced to make some difficult decisions as to whether or not key contributors will remain a part of the organization for the 2017 season.

Sean McVay And The Media

The contrast between Los Angeles in 2017 versus the last several seasons, can be found in how new head coach Sean McVay interacts with the media. It would have been logical that a veteran coach like Jeff Fisher would have been a master with the press. Logical yes, but factual no.
