Any word on whether the Rams will have to move their game with the Eagles out of the Coliseum?

 

There has been no reports that they'll have to move it. The fires are near, but not close enough where it will affect the game or the air quality (any more so than regular LA air quality lol).

 

The Rams held an indoor walkthrough practice yesterday, but they are on the field today.

Where actually could the Rams or Chargers move on such short notice?

The Bay area?Both of those teams are on the road.Arizona & Denver are both home so no.Guess that would mean

Football double header in San Diego?

Bet that would go over like a Led Zeppelin.😑

See the fire map.  No fires are near downtown, the Thomas Fire is 15 miles from the Rams’ headquarters and the smoke’s being blown over the water.

 

Keep in mind here that when the media panics about LA being on fire that the furthest north point to the furthest south point of LA proper is 45 miles and the metro area is greater than 10,000 square miles.

Sean Payton sends Ted Ginn across the middle and he actually made the catch. But Sean had Ted take a big hit  to remind Ted that he doesn't take those hits well.

Also consider that the Fox Pregame show will start at 9 a.m. local time with the game itself not kicking off until 1:25 p.m. local time. So take into account the drive time to the stadium, parking, etc.

 

So no, not too many people will be there even earlier than that to get their spot on TV for the pregame show.

But hey, we're the NFL! We need two teams in LA!

 

LA was always the greatest threat for owners to get a new stadium. And now they have the threat of St. Louis and San Diego.

Fox is hiring actors to play Rams fans so their live pregame show isn’t full of eagles supporters. 

I remember reading somewhere that the Chargers allegedly hired actors to fill seats at their first rally post-move.

"Hiring actors" is a bit of an exaggeration. This to me looks like Fox is trying to be clever in advertising the damn pre-game show but putting on a casting site. They used the exact same message on their Facebook group and Twitter, they aren't hiring fans. 

 

Edit: from a CBS sports article on the topic 

 

Quote

"FOX Sports later clarified to CBSSports.com that it's "not uncommon" for the network to encourage fan attendance at pre-game shows, especially ones stationed in the vicinity of game-day stadiums "prior to the doors of the stadium being open," as Sunday's Eagles-Rams event will be. The network said it has used a similar practice for "all of our shows onsite," and added that it is not "hiring actors" but rather welcoming fan participation for the show.

That hasn't stopped others, however, from piling on the notion that Los Angeles is having a tough time recruiting its own fans".

 

 

I think it pretty clear this is just advertising the pregame show.

This story has been blown way out of proportion. This is no different than hiring extras for a film/television set. They want both teams to be represented equally otherwise it would look weird if the TV viewers only saw Eagles fans behind the set at a Rams home game.

This Niners team is REALLY bad, but I think they may have something here with Garrapolo. He's been under pressure pretty much all day vs a good (even though banged up) Texans D and he's still looked pretty impressive. If they can get him a line that's worth a damn, that trade may pay off for them.

Man, the Cowboys need some new WR’s. Two dropped touchdowns today, in addition to multiple other drops, in a 10-10 game. It should be a blow out.

The Browns are leading by a touchdown against the Packers with less than a quarter to go.

Niners hurt Tom Savage, but it’s a case where the backup, TJ Yates is probably better. 

 

Also the Raiders are complete no shows today.

Dan Bailey having a really pedestrian effort today; leaving 7 points on the board.
