The Los Angeles Rams have fallen on hard times during their three-game losing streak. Given the overwhelming level of NFL talent on the Rams' roster, many have anointed the Los Angeles squad as the premier Super Bowl threat in the league. Former quarterback and Fox Sports commentator Troy Aikman has a harsh take about the Rams' talented roster.

Ouch. Troy Aikman basically thinks that Los Angeles' recent strategy of bargaining the future for the opportunity to acquire stars in the present won't work in the NFL.
Aikman had the Rams in mind when he brought up the 2000 Washington team that had stars, such as Bruce Smith, LaVar Arrington, Deion Sanders and Champ Bailey, all over the field but couldn't translate such talent into wins, finishing 8-8.
The Rams arguably have more talent on their roster than that Washington team- and a lot would have to go wrong for Los Angeles to finish 8-8, as they currently sit at 7-4.
Still, Aikman makes a valid point that things seem to be unraveling for the Rams- who have lost three straight games to playoff-caliber teams in the second half- which by the way, is part of a concerning trend in the Sean McVay era.
Well, Aikman doesn't think they have enough to “get over the hump.” It remains to be seen if Troy Aikman will be right about the Rams, though it's certainly a grim take for Los Angeles fans to hear in the midst of a tough stretch.
