But the football is going to be played in the future.Los Angeles Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman commits pass interference, though it goes uncalled, against New Orleans Saints WR Tommylee Lewis during the NFC Championship, Jan. 20, 2019.Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsNews:Look, there are two things to note of sincere, significant importance here.One, the league/owners/coaches/whomever crossed a big line here in adding judgment calls and no-calls to the list of reviewable outcomes. That’s huge. And two <a title="Brandin Cooks Color Rush Jersey" href="">Brandin Cooks Color Rush Jersey</a> , this would absolutely remedy what happened late in the NFC Championship when Los Angeles Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman interfered with New Orleans Saints WR Tommylee Lewis and it went uncalled. That’s not huge. That’s actually pretty not huge.Because it doesn’t address the wide array of possibilities that would create a similar outrage based on the same technicalities that existed two months ago.And I predicted as much two months ago:It was always going to be this stupid and this myopic. This is how the NFL operates.The state of officiating this sport for this league is a body with a hundred cuts and they put a band-aid on one of them.Good job. Good effort. Anderson gave the Rams everything and more in the short time he played in LA, but now he moves on to Detroit."According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Los Angeles Rams running back C.J. Anderson has signed a 1-year deal with the Detroit Lions. The amount of deal is not known, yet. Anderson seems to be excited about the signing. Anderson played a pivotal part in the Rams’ offense in the short time he played in LA, and will undoubtedly be a positive addition to a Detroit running game that finished in the bottom half of the league. The Lions’ leading rusher Kerryon Johnson rushed for just 641 yards last season. During the 2018 season, the Lions run-game racked up 1,660 yards which was 23rd-most in the league. They also had the 10th-fewest yards-per-game (103.8), seventh-lowest yards-per-carry (4.1) and eighth-fewest rushing touchdowns (11). The Rams signed Anderson on Dec. 19 and started him in the final two games of the regular season. Through those two games <a title="Brandon Allen Jersey" href="">Brandon Allen Jersey</a> , Anderson compiled 299 yards. He averaged around seven yards-per-carry in that span, scored two rushing touchdowns and recorded back-to-back games of more than 100 rushing yards. In the divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, Todd Gurley returned as the starter and Anderson played a complementary role. He still racked up 123 yards and two touchdowns on 23 touches. Anderson couldn’t have come at a better time for the Rams rushing offense. Their starting back was injured following a Week 14 game against the Eagles and their back-up in Malcolm Brown was out of the year. Injuries aside, the running-game as a whole struggled with consistency in the second half of the season. Between Week Eight and Week 15, the Rams didn’t record consecutive games of 100 or more rushing yards. Gurley himself saw fewer touches as time went on. Between Week Eight and Week 14, Gurley only accrued more than 16 touches once twice. Anderson had three consecutive games where he recorded more than 20 touches (Week 16, Week 17 and the division round of the playoffs). The signing also ends the will they, won’t they debate when it came to the Rams re-signing Anderson. The Rams already have three running backs (Gurley <a title="Ramik Wilson Color Rush Jersey" href="">Ramik Wilson Color Rush Jersey</a> , Malcolm Brown and John Kelly) signed through 2021, which seemingly made him the odd-man out. While the dividends of signing Anderson in December far-exceeded expectations, he was added to fill a need for healthy running backs. Brown was already out for the season and Gurley was going to miss time following the Week 14 game against the Eagles. It sucks to see Anderson leave the team. He added a new facet to the running game which made the offense better as a whole. Anderson made a tremendous impact on the team in a short amount of time. Too short, if you ask me.(UPDATED on 4/6/19, 2:13pm ET)We got the contract terms, and it’s not terribly different than the terms Brown was on originally or the deal he signed after being offered by the Lions:
