The superlatives for LA Rams head coach Sean McVay from LA Rams fans are never-ending and for good reason. At the youthful age of 36 years old, McVay has been and will continue to be the face of excellence in professional football.

McVay has an infectious personality and a drive that is visible when the Rams are on the field or in the locker room. His play calling is impeccable, and players from other teams on either side of the football know that an opportunity to play for the LA Rams can change the trajectory of a career.

The Rams are playing in that rarified air where winning a Super Bowl could happen any season over the next few years. With a deep pool of talent on offense and defense, those opportunities to raise another Lombardi Trophy seem only to be a matter of ‘when’.

That said, the national media doesn’t even see the LA Rams as the odds-on favorite to win a championship this season.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+600) are the odds favorite to win Super Bowl LVII, followed by the Rams’ Week 1 opponent, the Buffalo Bills (+650). The LA Rams are tied with the  Kansas City Chiefs and then the Green Bay Packers (+1000).
