CL: We're neighbors. His apartment is pretty clean. I don't know if he wants D-linemen over there messing his place up.
DP: So you couldn't show up unannounced with a six-pack of beer?
CL: [Laughs.] I think I have to fill out some forms. Sam is a great neighbor, and I could go over anytime. But Sam likes to go to bed right after practice. Which I understand, because he's got a lot going on with this new offense. Sam's not throwing many parties over there.
DP: Why should I pick the Rams to win the NFC West?
CL: Just know that's our goal. We're going to play solid, physical defense. We have a lot of new pieces on offense. We have a great quarterback who's going to make plays.
DP: Chris, you're not getting me excited.
CL: On paper we're not going to be the most "exciting" team. That's not our thing. We have a lot of games against great teams. I don't think people are going to be tuning in to watch the Rams yet. But with everyone watching these big-name teams, we might be able to get some people's attention. I do believe we can win this division.
DP: I'm going to pencil you in for double-digits sacks.
CL: I appreciate that greatly.
DP: How about 11 regular-season wins?
