THOUSAND OAKS , Calif. (AP) — draft pick in the Sean McVay era.The NFC champions traded the 31st overall pick to Atlanta on Thursday night, picking up the 45th and 79th overall selections while also sending the 203rd overall pick to the Falcons.The Rams have four picks among the top 100 selections after making the deal. General manager Les Snead had expressed an interest in increasing his draft capital after trading away several key picks in recent years to bolster their veteran depth, and he found a willing partner in the Falcons.“Early in the process, we knew the pool of players that we might be dealing with” for the 31st pick, Snead said. “You always have a few favorites that if they did fall — you didn’t project them to — that maybe you hold pat and pick. But if those chosen few didn’t , we felt it would be better to add another third-round pick and have four picks in the top 100 instead of three.”Atlanta used the 31st overall pick on Washington offensive tackle Kaleb McGary.“A lot of the things that we anticipated played out,” McVay said. “It’s something we feel really good about. When you look at the entirety of having those four picks in the top 100, we feel really good about coming away with four good football players. … It worked out the way that we wanted to.”Los Angeles added the Falcons’ two picks to its 94th and 99th overall choices, giving the Rams one second-round pick and three third-round picks on what should be a busy Friday. The Rams traded away their own 2019 second-round pick last year to get cornerback Marcus Peters from Kansas City.The Rams have not made a first-round selection since 2016, when they traded up with Tennessee to select Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick. Snead has a history of big hits with his highest draft picks , which have included Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley.But McVay has transformed Snead’s roster into back-to-back NFC West champions during his two-year tenure without help from a first-round rookie. The coach clearly wasn’t bothered by the decision to move back for an extra pick on Friday, even with distinguished talent still available Thursday night at No. 31 in the Rams’ areas of need on the offensive line and the secondary.“It feels par for the course,” McVay said. “There’s going to be a lot of really good football players that are drafted (Friday). We are going to feel good.” Imagine a 3-13 team hosting a playoff game. Impossible, right? Not according to the mathematical wizards over at Nate Silver’s 538 Blog. Silver stunned the political and statistical worlds (there’s a joke in there somewhere) by accurately predicting 49 of 50 states correctly during the 2008 US Presidential Election and then outdid himself in 2012 by pitching the perfect game. These top 10 terrible playoff teams could only dream of such exceptional stats. But at least they got more than three wins… if only barely.There is always that one division in the NFL that simply doesn’t belong amongst the rest. This year it is the lowly NFC South, where it is highly likely that either Atlanta or New Orleans , heck maybe even Carolina, will emerge to host a playoff game with a losing record. This is an injustice to the great teams who have 10 or even 11 wins and will miss out on the playoffs. Every year it happens again and again. A losing team should never be given even a sliver of a chance of reaching the Super Bowl.To be fair, the NFL is not the NHL or NBA, leagues in which bad teams consistently make the playoffs. There is no worse illustration of this trend that the 1952-53 Baltimore Bullets who made the NBA Playoffs in spite of posting a dismal 16-54 record. That’s a 0.228 winning percentage. But the past faults of other leagues do not excuse the problems in football today. The NFL holds itself to a higher standard and cannot let this unfairness persist. In all likelihood, another losing team will host a playoff game this year. The Competition Committee should have only one top priority this off-season.

Well, this is bad news that they didn’t get over from the first round then how they will go further. This is a big question on the team’s performance. But above all of this is a big question for the coach. What he is doing and how he is playing his part?
