Jared Goff's Dad Dak & Carson Have Raised Expectations ... But He's Ready

11/19/2016 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It's hard enough for a rookie QB in the NFL, but with Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz killing it, the expectations on Jared Goff are even higher than normal ... so says Goff's dad. 

We spoke with Jerry Goff who tells us he's super excited to watch Jared's 1st start against the Dolphins this weekend ... because Jared's been working his ass off to get to this point.

As for the other rookies, Dak and Carson are a combined 13-5 -- and Jerry says, "All of [Jared's] buddies are out there doing their thing. There's gonna be some expectations, no doubt."

It's clear Jerry is proud of his son ... and he even reveals what he told Jared when he found out about the promotion. Good stuff.

Eric Dickerson Rams Won't Make Playoffs ... So, Why Not Goff?!

11/17/2016 3:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Eric Dickerson ain't too confident in his squad -- telling TMZ Sports he doesn't believe the Rams will make the playoffs this year ... so why not start Jared Goff and get him ready for next season?

It's kind of a shocking opinion considering the Rams are 4-5 and right in the thick of things for a playoff spot ... especially with 7 more games to go. One good run and who knows what could happen. 

The Seahawks are leading the NFC West with a 6-2-1 record ... followed by the Cardinals at 4-4-1. 

For the record, Dickerson says he's not rooting against the Rams -- he just thinks it'll be a tough road to hoe. 

Meantime, he's all about getting Goff some reps -- and hopes maybe, just maybe, the QB can prove his prediction wrong. 

Rams' Robert Quinn Family Called 911 for Possible Seizure

11/15/2016 4:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

L.A. Rams defensive end Robert Quinn was shaking uncontrollably during an episode on Monday morning -- and his mother-in-law called 911 because she believed he was having a seizure. 

The 26-year-old was at a home in Agoura, CA when the medical episode began around 6 AM. His mother-in-law was at the residence at the time -- and despite the fact she was clearly frightened, she composed herself enough to call 911. 

At the time of the call, Quinn's mother-in-law told the operator he was still shaking ... though he stopped during the call and actually stood up. The operator advised Quinn to lay back down. 

Emergency personnel raced to the scene and Quinn was transported to a nearby hospital. He was released the next day. 

Quinn was diagnosed and treated for a brain tumor in high school -- though it's unclear if that condition contributed to the episode on Monday.

Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt STRONGLY believes he belongs in the Pro Bowl this year ... and threw himself a rally in L.A. on Thursday to fire up the voters to get his ass to Orlando! 

Kenny says he's having the best season of his 8 year NFL career -- and wants the league to take notice. 

37 catches for 584 yards and 3 TDs ... not bad. In fact, he's ranked #19 in total receiving yards this year. 

But good enough for the Pro Bowl? The people with signs seem convinced. Are you?

EXCLUSIVE

Rams fans, don't give up on your 3-5 squad just yet ... 'cause one of the team's best players, Kenny Britt, says L.A. still has a legit shot to make the PLAYOFFS!

TMZ Sports saw Britt leaving Catch in West Hollywood Monday night ... and asked the wide receiver if the Rams -- who've lost 4 straight -- could still make the postseason.

Britt ain't exactly exuding confidence ... but he says the Rams definitely have a shot.

If they do somehow make the playoffs ... will it be 'cause Jared Goff got 'em there?

We asked Kenny ... check out the clip.

L.A. Rams player T.J. McDonald has pled not guilty to his DUI charge stemming from his arrest back in May ... TMZ Sports has learned.

This week, McDonald's attorney appeared in court and pled not guilty on his behalf.

He's due back in court at the end of the month.

L.A. Rams Stars Packing the House ... Win or Lose

10/10/2016 3:31 PM PDT

Turns out Hollywood's more than just a Lakers town -- celebs are making the L.A. Rams a new Sunday Funday tradition.

A-listers like Ty Burrell, Tyga, Josh Hutcherson, Ashley Greene, Gene Simmons, Chris Paul, Lindsey Vonn, Chloe Grace Moretz and many more spent the afternoon at the Coliseum cheering on the Rams during their 2nd game back in the West Coast.

Sure, they lost to the Buffalo Bills ... but at least they can fall back on the ole "We've got hot fans" cheer.

Eric Dickerson If Carson Wentz Was An L.A. Ram He'd Be Sittin' On The Bench

9/25/2016 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carson Wentz is lightin' it up in the league ... but if he was on the L.A. Rams, he'd be sittin' on the bench, just like Jared Goff ... NFL Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson tells TMZ Sports.

Dickerson -- one of the greatest Rams of all time -- joined "TMZ Sports" (weeknights on FS1) to discuss the 2 QBs ... and whether the Rams screwed up selecting the one they did.

FYI -- Wentz, the #2 pick, has led his Eagles to a 2-0 start (3 TDs, 0 INTs). On the other hand, Goff, the #1 pick, was inactive for the Rams 1st game ... and served as the backup for the 2nd.

So, does Eric think the Rams screwed up not drafting Wentz? And if they drafted him, would he be killin' it with the Rams like he has with the Eagles?

Check out the clip! 

LeBron James Heckled at Rams Game 'Kobe! Kobe! Kobe!'

9/19/2016 7:00 AM PDT

He may have been supporting the home team, but LeBron James still got a bunch of crap from Rams fans at the Coliseum on Sunday ... getting peppered with "Kobe!" chants from the stands.

Besides James, there was a TON of huge stars at the Rams game -- the first NFL home game in Los Angeles in years -- including Magic Johnson, Ty Burrell, Flea, Anthony Kiedis, CeeLo, James Corden and more!

9/18/2016 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell ain't messin' around when it comes to his beloved football team ... saying if it comes down to the Rams gettin' a W ... or winning an Emmy, he's blue and gold all day.

TMZ Sports ran into Ty at LAX ... and asked about his plans to double dip his Sunday activities -- bolting from the Rams game to attend the Emmys later that night.

FYI -- Burrell's nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

So, with that kind of commitment, we had to ask whether he'd take one for the team in exchange for a victory.

T.B.'s answer is shocking. Desperate times, desperate measures.

L.A. Rams' T.J. McDonald Charged with DUI

9/16/2016 1:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

L.A. Rams safety T.J. McDonald just took a hit ... the L.A. City Attorney's Office is charging him with non-alcohol related DUI ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old was arrested on May 10th after crashing into a parked car. Law enforcement sources tell us they believe medication was involved.

The City Attorney charged McDonald with one count of driving under the influence of drugs. Still no word on what the drug or drugs.

He's facing up to 6 months jail time if convicted -- but it's extremely rare for a first-time DUI offender, like McDonald, to get locked up.

Neither the NFL nor the Rams have disciplined him yet.

L.A. Rams Yo, Patriots ... We Dig Lobstah Too

9/16/2016 2:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The L.A. Rams are eating like they're New England Patriots, even if they're not scoring like them. Yet.

The Cousins Maine Lobster food truck rolled up to Rams practice on the Cal Lutheran University campus in Thousand Oaks and shelled out $4,000 worth of lobster to the players.

Seems like the team's already going Hollywood, since even their food has to be famous now. The owners of Cousins Maine struck a deal on "Shark Tank" with Barbara Corcoran.

The Rams have their home opener in L.A. this weekend, and they'll be fueled up on lobster tots, lobster grilled cheese, and lobster rolls. 

Probably won't be enough to help 'em upset the Seahawks, but at least they got some good grub.

Tavon Austin NFL Star's Car In Police Chase ... Friend Arrested

EXCLUSIVE

An expensive BMW registered to L.A. Rams star wide receiver Tavon Austin was involved in a police chase in California on Wednesday and the driver was arrested ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cops say Dominic Makell -- a longtime friend of the NFL star -- was driving a silver BMW X6 on a California highway. For some reason, cops tried to pull him over ... but Makell allegedly took off. 

Eventually, the vehicle came to a stop and Makell was arrested for felony evading an officer and willful disregard. He was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked. Bail was set at $50,000.

We're told Austin's name was listed as the registered owner of the car on the official police report.

We spoke with the Rams and the team confirmed Austin was at practice all day and was NOT involved with the arrest. 

We also reached out to Tavon's agent for comment -- so far, no word back.
