Too soon for that Best Team in the NFL nonsense

As soon as the Rams won their third game in a row, this time against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL media started blasting the “Rams are the best team in the NFL” and many bought in. It was everyone from Rich Eisen, to ESPN’s Get Up, to Colin Cowherd.  As I stated in the Cowherd article:

"“Too much love? Well, in the grand scheme of things, this endorsement by Colin Cowherd remains unsettling. While I believe that Stafford’s ability to pass into the jaws of the defense without deception is a positive step for the Rams offense, I would feel a bit better if Colin Cowherd wasn’t discussing it.”"

The Rams are young and still learning. The veteran Rams players are still familiarizing themselves with the Rams plays and the roster. The best strategy is to gradually improve through the course of the season. Peak later, learn now.

The broadcasters called this a beat down. It was. After piling up a string of eight consecutive wins, the LA Rams are now 8-1 against the Arizona Cardinals since head coach Sean McVay took over. But just as there are no style points for an ugly win, there are just as few for an ugly loss.

The Rams will emerge from this one with a record of 3-1, with an unexpected 0-1 record in the very competitive NFC West. The Rams will be on the road to face the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle, a team that is on the way to winning their second game with a surprising win of their own against the San Francisco 49ers.
