The genius that is Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay cannot be overstated, especially when he’s taking an 8-0 record into the midway point of the NFL season. While no one knows what lies ahead in the second half of 2018, the first half is another indicator of how well and frankly how fortunate LA was to land this genius as a successor to the failed and disastrous Jeff Fisher.
But beyond that, credit McVay for advancing the success of 11-5 in 2017 to where the Rams find themselves heading into Week 9 against the Saints. But most interestingly also consider what he’s done with the offense.
Remember that the rest of the league had an entire offseason of tape to figure out what McVay was doing in Los Angeles. Despite that, he still has the Rams undefeated.
Also look at how much growth and overall continued improvement quarterback Jared Goff has seen since being a near bust at 0-7 in 2016. While he entered his third year as the Rams quarterback with a .500 record, he now oversees an offense that is both undefeated and is again the perceived best in the league.
Whatever happens the second half of 2018 is yet to be seen, but through these first eight games he’s built on a level of excellence that still hasn’t peaked.
