1. McVay knows how to bring out the best in players
Other than maybe Tavon Austin, the hiring of Sean McVay back in 2017 was the best decision the Rams ever could have made when looking at how much of a threat this team has become over the last two seasons, and they’re just getting started.
While quarterback development to help bring out the best in Jared Goff was one of the main reasons behind the decision to hire McVay, it should also note that he tends to bring out the best in players on offense in general, and the results from the last two years back this up.
Richardson’s previous time in the NFL may have ended up being a complete disaster, and a second opportunity to show that he could still make an impact would bring all sorts of new pressure.
But when it comes to Los Angeles, the team should feel confident in the ability of McVay to help Richardson turn things around if given the opportunity while making the offense that much more dangerous moving forward.
Dating back to last offseason, the Rams have made it clear they’re willing to give any player a chance if they strongly believe he can put them in better position to make a run at the Super Bowl.
Does this mean Richardson could be another surprise addition for Los Angeles to give them an extra advantage on offense? As mentioned before, this sounds like a long shot at the moment, but when it comes to the Rams, nothing should ever be ruled out, no matter how crazy it seems to be.
