Rams’ Jalen Ramsey fires back at ‘lame ass Bears fans’ roasting him over Darnell Mooney
Chicago Bears fans are having some fun at the expense of Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey after wide receiver Darnell Mooney cooked Ramsey in a game last season. Mooney likely would have had a touchdown if Nick Foles didn’t badly overthrow him.
Bears fans haven’t forgotten and there has been some trash talking, including in the form of Wikipedia and Google shenanigans. The Bears and Rams are set to play each other in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season.
Ramsey is now firing back at Bears fans:
“Can’t wait till week 1 so all these lame ass Bears fans can stfu about they number 2 wr.”

Mooney had an impressive rookie season for the Bears despite shoddy quarterback play, which is the norm in Chicago. He caught 61 balls for 631 yards and four touchdowns as the No. 2 option behind star wide receiver Allen Robinson. In that Rams game, he caught three passes for 40 yards, but obviously he would have had way better numbers with a competent quarterback throwing to him.
Mooney is hoping to take another step forward in Year 2 with a new quarterback. Andy Dalton is currently set to be the starter, but it’s only a matter of time before rookie Justin Fields takes over under center.
That first matchup against Ramsey and the Rams will be a tough one. Even though Mooney torched Ramsey on that play last season, the cornerback is still one of the best in the NFL on one of the best defenses in the league. Whether it’s Dalton or Fields at quarterback in Week 1, it’s going to be tough sledding for Chicago.
This will be the fourth season in a row the Rams and Bears play each other. The three prior meetings were defensive battles, with Los Angeles winning the last two games.
Let’s hope this trash talk keeps going leading up to Week 1, because it’s a lot of fun.
