It’s a legitimate question, and one head coach Sean McVay needs to answer sooner rather than later.
The Rams passing game, especially any sort of deep threat to Watkins, or anyone else for that matter, is trending WAY down, and after yesterday in Jacksonville, it doesn’t look to be getting better anytime soon.
As good as the Los Angeles offense has looked, especially Goff and the passing game, it’s all but evaporated in the last two weeks. And if the Goff to Watkins possibility can’t materialize, the chain reaction will be felt in a tenuous rushing attack if defenses know they can focus only on running back Todd Gurley.
Watkins was targeted four times yesterday , catching one pass for 11 yards.
That’s the Rams deep, home run threat?
This offense is in danger of becoming a one trick pony again if it’s Goff to Gurley and hoping to convert on third down.
McVay has to get this fixed if the Los Angeles Rams are to have any hopes of getting into the playoff hunt.
Bottom line, Goff to Watkins is not just trending down, but nearing a flat line.
