1. Rams should feel extra motivated for Super Bowl run
Cards on the table, there’s a good chance that Whitworth mot likely would have retired if the Rams defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 so he could retire as a winner, which doesn’t happen too often at the NFL level.
Since Los Angeles has been forced to deal with the awful feeling of failing to score a single touchdown in that game against New England, there’s nothing this team would love more than another chance to redeem themselves next February in Miami.
Also, now that Whitworth is officially back in the picture, and will most likely be in the position of possibly retiring once again after the 2019 season, hopefully this will provide the rest of his teammates with a little extra motivation to make sure he goes out as a winner.
Who knows, maybe the Rams could even establish a “win for Whitworth” campaign throughout next season since after all that he’s accomplished for this team over the last two years, the argument can be made that no one deserves a Super Bowl ring more.
Time and time again, Whitworth has proven to be quite a special player on the football field along with being one of the most respected players in the league, so here’s to hoping his Los Angeles teammates take this into consideration when it comes to playing with extra motivation in 2019.
