Once again, the Los Angeles Rams should have one of the top offenses in the NFL heading into the 2019 season.
Believe it or not, training camp is right around the corner for the Los Angeles Rams, as all eyes will be on Sean McVay‘s team to see how they follow up from last year’s disappointing performance in the Super Bowl.
After going through everything they did to earn a trip to Super Bowl 53, it was crushing to watch the Rams fail to even record a single touchdown in their loss to the New England Patriots, but hopefully this can be used as a learning experience moving forward.
Even with all of the continued questions surrounding Todd Gurley‘s knee since most football fans assumed this would be a non-issue by now, Los Angeles still has the potential to have one of the top offenses across the NFL.
With that being said, ESPN’s Bill Barnwell recently put together a list consisting of the best and worst offensive arsenals in the NFL heading into the 2019 season.
Barnwell makes it clear this list was put together without considering team’s skill-position talent without taking into consideration the impact of quarterback, offensive line, or scheme.
Basically, if a team has a solid group of receivers and running backs, chances are they’re going to be high on Barnwell’s list.
Does this mean the Rams deserve the honors of being No. 1? While it’s easy to make a strong case for Los Angeles since the weapons Jared Goff has to work are insane, it does put extra pressure on the unit heading into 2019, which is the last thing they need to deal with.
The Rams were already facing a ton of extra pressure this offseason since Gurley’s knee still appears to be an issue on top of Cooper Kupp continuing to recover from a torn ACL. And while being No. 1 on a list like this may not seem like that big of a deal to some, it still adds pressure for Los Angeles.
On paper, the Rams have the potential to finish near the top of the league once again when it comes to offense in 2019, and if all goes well, they will earn another trip to the Super Bowl in Miami with hopefully better results this time around.
But instead of jumping that far ahead, the best approach the Rams can take is focus one day at a time to put them in better position of living up to the high expectations on offense while proving people like Barnwell right in the process.
