The Los Angeles Rams didn't really aspire to perfection Limited Rick Leonard Jersey , and they didn't appear to be overly crushed when their unbeaten start to the season ended in New Orleans.The Rams definitely dream of the Super Bowl, and coach Sean McVay believes their quest will get a major boost from the minor setback of Sunday's 45-35 loss to the powerhouse Saints."The sense we got from our players is that if anything, it creates an added sense of urgency," McVay said Monday night at the team's training complex. "You know, that feeling in your gut where you wake up and you're just sick because you didn't get the result that you wanted is something that you can't create unless you do end up losing. We try to be consistent whether you win or lose, but there is something that is created just based on not getting the result that you wanted."The Rams are 8-1 with a new reason to work hard after they failed for the first time in their remarkable season. Los Angeles' defense largely couldn't slow down Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara, while the Rams' high-octane offense couldn't quite keep up on the scoreboard despite rallying from a 21-point deficit to tie it.Afterward, several Rams players expressed a backhanded relief that the specter of a perfect season no longer hangs over the head of a franchise that is less than two years removed from a 4-12 finish. Defensive lineman Michael Brockers said LA's first loss "might be a blessing in disguise."And McVay left the Superdome with plenty of teachable moments on video.Many of those lowlights occurred while the Rams fell behind 35-14 late in the first half. Those 35 points are the most allowed in a half by the Rams defense since 2008 鈥?and that's saying something, since 2008 was the second of 10 consecutive losing seasons for this club.McVay praised cornerback Marcus Peters for taking responsibility for his mistakes in coverage, but the coach also realizes the blame must be shared across the roster after giving up a season-worst 487 yards."I think with the expectations that our defense has, and that we have for them, they would expect to be better," McVay said. "But there's a lot of credit that needs to go to the Saints. They're one of the top offenses in the league for a reason. ... It's a great tape for us to be able to look at, figure out what we can do as a defensive group to be able to respond the right way (and) use it as a chance to learn from it."The Rams' 8-0 start was the franchise's best since 1969, and one loss hasn't stopped their historic turnaround. This franchise has won more than eight games just once in the previous 14 seasons 鈥?and that was last season, when McVay led the Rams to a seven-game improvement from 2016 with an 11-5 regular-season record.After the loss in New Orleans, several Rams also noted they have never lost back-to-back regular-season games under McVay. A visit from the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday is a chance for the Rams to keep that standard intact while essentially ending the NFC West race before mid-November."Can't wait to get back out and get another opportunity to compete and try to erase this feeling that you do have," McVay said. "I feel like our building shares that same feeling. We're excited about getting to work."NOTES: The Rams added rookie OLB Ogbo Okoronkwo to their active roster and waived linebacker Trevon Young. Okoronkwo had foot surgery and went on the physically unable to perform list before training camp, which meant Los Angeles had to decide Monday whether to activate the fifth-round pick or put him on injured reserve. McVay hasn't decided how much Okoronkwo will play this season Josh Hill Jersey , but the coach was "intrigued" by what he saw in practice over the last three weeks. "He's done some things that we felt like were positive, were encouraging," McVay said. ... The Rams have no new injuries from their trip, McVay said. LB Matt Longacre was evaluated for a concussion during the game in New Orleans, but he returned to action. Winning any of the AP's individual NFL awards, from MVP to top rookie, means plenty to players.Being nominated for, no less winning, the Walter Payton Man of the Year award means more.Don't minimize how proud a guy is when he's voted one of the prestigious individual awards. It's a portion of his resume that jumps off the page the way Saquon Barkley hurdles over potential tacklers.But being selected for the Payton award, renamed in 1999 for the great Chicago Bears running back and humanitarian, involves so much more than football achievements."It is probably one of my greatest accomplishments," says 2013 winner Charles Tillman, who played 12 seasons at cornerback for the Bears and his final year with the Panthers. "It really shows the true character of a person."When fans see us, they just assume a lot of times we are just athletes. They don't know what these men do on their days off during the season, in the community. A lot of players really put their community service in every week of the year. They get their charity work done and their volunteer work."The Walter Payton Award is about excellence off the field. I am proud to be associated with that award."Who wouldn't be? In a time when many NFL players have been criticized or even condemned for their protests of social and racial injustice during the national anthem, many 鈥?if not most of them 鈥?also have been doing good deeds in their communities. They don't do it for recognition or applause. As Tillman notes, they do it because they can "shed light on a bigger thing. It's not just football. It's about being a good person, serving other people and loving other people."Unlike in the past, when three finalists were selected before a recipient was chosen P.J. Williams Jersey Salute to Service , one player from every NFL team is a finalist. All will be recognized and participate in NFL functions during Super Bowl week. The Man of the Year will be revealed at NFL Honors, when The Associated Press' individual NFL awards are announced Feb. 2 in Atlanta.Five current players have won the award: Drew Brees, Thomas Davis, Larry Fitzgerald, Eli Manning and J.J. Watt, and they wear a Man of the Year patch on their jerseys. All 2018 finalists will wear a Man of the Year helmet decal beginning this week through the end of the season."It's a tremendous honor," Jets offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum says. This week, Beachum surprised Ca'moore Jones, an eighth-grade student at Orange Preparatory Academy in New Jersey, with two Super Bowl tickets. Moore was nominated by his teacher, Glenn Gamble, for his performance and growth with the Character Playbook course that is embraced by the NFL."Just the name Walter Payton, he's the gold standard," Beachum said. "What he did off the field and on the field, his excellence is bar none, top in history. So to be mentioned in the same name and the same breath as him, it's truly humbling."Humbling is an appropriate word because the award finalists often feel that sensation during their community work."I've been blessed to play in this league for 13 years and to be a part of some really good seasons," says Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, who is heavily involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. "But making a difference in someone's life will go beyond football any day of the week. It's not just about the game Authentic Wil Lutz Jersey , it's about the opportunity to bring people together. When I look back and think about my NFL career, the time spent out in the community giving back to people in need will always be the most touching to me."Adds Colts DE Jabaal Sheard: "With our jobs as NFL players comes a huge platform to brighten and improve the lives of others, and that's what I strive to do every day."Tillman knows firsthand how kind and giving people can be. His own family was helped in 2008 when his infant daughter Tiana needed a heart transplant. Magali Garcia, the mother of 9-week-old Armando, who died in a Minnesota hospital, offered her son's heart.To Tillman, Magali Garcia is a hero, not him. She is what the Payton award is all about."When my daughter needed a new heart, another person stepped up and decided to take a bad situation and turn it into a success story," Tillman says. "She not only blessed my family but other families with her choice."For all we do in our foundation, it is a great blessing for what this woman did for her son. Magali, she is the one who actually is blessing those people, blesses them every day, and doesn't even know it. She served my family and a lot of families and she made an amazing choice. A tough decision. I think about her son a lot and I truly am sorry. She is a part of my family, and for us to have this story that has bonded us, and this connection, and to turn that negative into something positive by blessing other people ... I get great satisfaction in that."So when the NFL Honors program is televised the night before the Super Bowl, pay special attention to the names below. Maybe stand up and give them an ovation for the truly special things they do:Arizona Cardinals: Antoine BetheaAtlanta Falcons: Grady JarrettBaltimore Ravens: Brandon CarrBuffalo Bills: Lorenzo AlexanderCarolina Panthers: Julius PeppersChicago Bears: Trey BurtonCincinnati Bengals: Carlos DunlapCleveland Browns: Christian KirkseyDallas Cowboys: Dak PrescottDenver Broncos: Von MillerDetroit Lions: Matthew StaffordGreen Bay Packers: Kenny ClarkHouston Texans: Whitney MercilusIndianapolis Colts: Jabaal SheardJacksonville Jaguars: Blake BortlesKansas City Chiefs: Dustin ColquittLos Angeles Chargers: Corey LiugetLos Angeles Rams: Andrew WhitworthMiami Dolphins: Kenny StillsMinnesota Vikings: Kyle RudolphNew England Patriots: Devin McCourtyNew Orleans Saints: Mark IngramNew York Giants: Michael ThomasNew York Jets: Kelvin BeachumOakland Raiders: Marshawn LynchPhiladelphia Eagles: Chris LongPittsburgh Steelers: Cameron HeywardSan Francisco 49ers: Robbie GouldSeattle Seahawks: K.J.
