The LA Rams’ struggled in 2019 with inflexibility. Combining HC Sean McVay with OC Kevin O’Connell fixes that for 2020

The LA Rams head coach Sean McVay hired Kevin O’Connell to assist him with setting up the game plan for 2020 games. In 2019, that proved to be a weak area for the team.  You see, the perils of the LA Rams offense in 2019 had many contributing factors.
