Rams minicamp day two: Defense shines

Published Jun. 14, 2017 11:24 p.m. ET

On day two of three of the Los Angeles Rams mandatory minicamp, the defense excelled all practice long. During seven-on-seven and team drills, the defense intercepted three passes and deflected countless others.


It is clear that defensive coordinator Wade Phillip's system has been put in, and put in effectively:

“Defensively speaking, this minicamp and the OTAs, I couldn’t be more pleased with the guys’ attitude number one, and also the ability we have. I think we have a lot of talented players. They’re working hard to get better and I think we will show that in the fall when we start playing, start practicing together. We don’t make many mistakes and they’re real aggressive and they play well as a team. I’m really pleased with where we are right now.”

Going into day three of minicamp and eventually into training camp, Phillips thinks this Rams defense can turn some heads.

"I have a good feeling about this team," Phillips said, "It's just good players.We have some good players defensively. I think our secondary is stronger than what people think, I think they’ll show that. But, our front seven is going to be awfully strong.”


Phillips finished his press conference by breaking down his teaching style, a style that McVay gives a lot of praise to. Wade Phillips likes to make things simple. He sees himself "like a professor or high school teacher or whatever, you’ve got to get your information to them and they’ve got to know it.”
