3. McVay earns first career win in debut
During the offseason, the Los Angeles Rams took a major risk by making Sean McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history after the Jeff Fisher experiment turned out to be a complete disaster. Even if it was only one game against a disappointing team like the Indianapolis Colts, McVay wasted no time showing how much a difference he makes calling the shots, and give the Rams even more confidence heading into next weekend’s contest against the Washington Redskins.
Taking over a team that only won four games in 2016, and ranked dead last by only averaging 14 points per game was no easy task for McVay, but the new Los Angeles head coach kept himself busy in the offseason to make sure that wouldn’t happen again. Between improving the offensive line to providing Jared Goff with better weapons to work with in the passing game, Sunday showed this Rams team is completely different from the train wreck on display last season, and for once, there’s finally reason for excitement.
One of the main reasons why Los Angeles expressed such strong interest in McVay was due to his ability to improve the offense. One game in, McVay is already proving to the Rams they made the right decision to take a chance in the offseason when deciding to bring him on board.
