1. McVay loses three straight for first time
Losing three games in a row is never easy for any team, but it’s even more difficult for Rams fans at the moment because of how much McVay has spoiled them with wins since coming on board in 2017.
Originally, the plan in Los Angeles seemed to be that McVay would need at least a year or two just to build the team into a potential contender, but fans learned quickly this was far from the case.
Thanks to back-to-back NFC West titles, the Rams have been fortunate enough to be part of the conversation in the NFC of being a top contender since the 2017 season, which is part of the reason this recent three-game losing streak is so difficult to grasp.
Since it’s only the middle of October, there’s obviously still plenty of time for McVay to help turn things around for Los Angeles, but also that’s always easier said than done.
Between the 49ers still being undefeated along with the fact that another loss would drop the Rams below .500 on the year, the pressure is on McVay heading into Week 7.
If the losses continue to pile up for Los Angeles, that playoff streak will be more at risk to come to an end in 2019, and will most likely result in McVay seeing plenty of criticism.
