The LA Rams have won their first Super Bowl for Los Angeles, and it looks very much like they intend to do so again. Well, intentions like that are on the ‘To Do’ list of all 32 NFL teams. Some fell short due to talent. Some fell short due to injury. And some fell short due to mismanagement of the team.

Winning in the NFL is not a simple task. Each year, the way that the NFL is constructed has built-in circuit-breakers that are intended to discourage, if not outright prevent, NFL teams from enjoying too much success. Too much success concentrated on too few teams limits the marketability of the NFL as a whole. That is a challenge that the NCAA has yet to resolve.

The same handful of teams competing for a Championship is not wise, as it becomes both predictable and, heaven forbid, boring. The NFL has made it very difficult, but not impossible, to repeat. But the LA Rams have more than their fair share of challenges in the offseason.

To start things off, this is a successful team, but it is by no means a seasoned team. Since hiring on head coach Sean McVay, the LA Rams have gone 54-25 over five NFL seasons and gone 7-3 in postseason play. It’s been quite a run so far, but this past season was the culmination of effort from the entire organization. In short, there is no magical ‘overdrive’ to take the team to the next level.

Of course, the Ram have opportunities in 2022. We already know that the NFL West quarterback situation is in flux, as the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals are all reportedly facing difficult challenges with their 2021 starting quarterbacks.
