1. Goff looked extra sharp

Plenty of key factors will come into play when it comes to whether the Rams have what it takes to earn another trip to the Super Bowl this upcoming season, but the argument can be made that Jared Goff will be the biggest factor of all.

As much credit as Goff deserves for helping Los Angeles earn a trip to the Super Bowl in just his second full season as the starter, there was some frustration for the way the former No. 1 pick looked in the Super Bowl.

No offense with the kind of talent Los Angeles possesses should fail to score a single touchdown on one of the biggest stages in sports, but as mentioned before, at least Goff can use this as a learning experience moving forward.

Most quarterbacks would do anything to be part of the kind of offense Goff finds himself in, and if the previous two years are any indication of what 2019 will have in store, the Rams should watch their beloved quarterback take another positive step in the right direction.

After hearing how unhappy McVay was with the offense for how sluggish they looked last week when taking on the Chargers, it was great to see Goff look extra sharp during Wednesday’s practice with the Raiders.

Goff still has a long way to go to make sure the Rams remain a top contender in the NFC, but at least Wednesday was a great sign for Los Angeles.
