As someone who has been waiting for the Rams offense to flatten out, I can say it looks like it may not. Again, the key to the Los Angeles scoring machine will be its ability to avoid injuries, especially to a player like running back Todd Gurley.
And especially avoiding an injury to quarterback Jared Goff.
I’ve been critical of Goff, and despite what fanboy may think, the criticism has been fair but not entirely this season. Goff may have been off in the season opener against the Oakland Raiders, but he’s shaken off the rust and become a more than able trigger man for the Rams.
Or should I say “system quarterback?”
Either way, the Rams get high marks in September on offense.
Los Angeles has never really been threatened. Even in the opener against the Raiders, and in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, you never got the feeling that the Rams couldn’t simply outscore their opponent, no matter how many the other team put up.
It’s beyond just McVay.
The Rams are a video game where all the advantages seem to tilt in LA’s favor. Game calling aside, and it’s been masterful through four games, McVay has an arsenal of talent at his disposal where whatever he dials up is likely going to work.
The Rams offense isn’t just good through the first quarter of the season, it looks to be the kind that can win a Super Bowl.
