2. Rams are built to continue being serious contenders

One of the main reasons why the Rams were so thrilled about the hiring of McVay last offseason was due to all of the success he had as offensive coordinator with the Washington Redskins since he seemed capable of getting the best out of Goff and the offense. With that being said, football fans never could have predicted Los Angeles to make the leap that they did by going from a four-win team to NFC West champions in a single year.

Best part is, this is only the beginning of what should be a fascinating future with McVay as head coach with the Rams being built strong enough on both sides of the football to be serious contenders for years to come. Not only did McVay help the offense make NFL history by going from worst to first scoring after Los Angeles finished on top of the league by averaging 29.9 points per game, but Wade Phillips helped the stellar defense led by Aaron Donald be one of the best in the league as well.

After years of the division being ruled by the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, the Rams made a huge statement this season by proving to be the team to beat. So if Watkins wants to make sure he has a good chance of earning a Super Bowl ring, continuing to be part of a team that’s just getting started like Los Angeles seems like a no brainer for the wideout.
