3 reasons to believe Rams will strongly recover to compete for Super Bowl 54
1. Rams can now say they have Super Bowl experience
During McVay’s first season as head coach when the Rams lost to the Atlanta Falcons right away in the playoffs, it was clear the team’s inexperience playing that time of year was a major factor in their early exit.
This time around, however, Los Angeles entered the postseason with a little extra confidence since the learned from the year before the kind of pressure that comes with January football.
Of course, no matter how much experience a team like the Rams gained in January, the Super Bowl is a completely different game that always brings a ton of extra pressure since it’s one of the biggest stages in professional sports.
Clearly, the inexperience factor came into play in the worst way possible for Los Angeles during their loss to New England, especially after looking at how rattled players like Jared Goff looking on offense.
As frustrating as this has been to deal with since the end of the game, Rams fans should be relieved over the frustration Goff is feeling himself, and most importantly acknowledging this is a situation he can learn from.
If all goes according to plan for Los Angeles next season, and they happen to earn a trip to Super Bowl 54, at least their experience from this past year should hopefully help them handle the pressure of playing in the big game.
