After an excruciating 22-10 loss at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys, the LA Rams sit at a 2-3 record after five games for the first time in the Sean McVay era. The last time this was the case, our beloved Rams were competing in St. Louis, Missouri.
Not only that, but this is also only the second time that the Rams’ McVay has been under .500 in his career. Ironically, the first occured during the team’s 0-1 record after losing the opener to the Buffalo Bills.
Now, this is not an article coming for the head of the Super Bowl-winning head coach Sean McVay, who boasts a 62-29 career record at the young age of 36. Instead, this is about a team that five weeks into the season has struggled to establish any type of identity.

McVay and the Rams have made a name for themselves on innovative play calling, executing in an efficient manner, and winning a lot of football games. Instead, we are looking at an offense that simply cannot execute and is as predictable of an offense as Rams fans have seen since 2016.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the football, the defense that is known for getting to the passer and creating turnovers is allowing long drives and big plays. Of course, the defense remains the shiny surface of a rapidly tarnished team.
With a team that has the likes of quarterback Matthew Stafford, wide receiver Cooper Kupp, defensive lineman Aaron Donald and defensive back Jalen Ramsey, Rams fans have just one question. What in the world is going on?
