Struggling through a historically pressing 2016-2017 season, the now Los Angeles Rams, an eighty year-old franchise, had suffered 12 losses and only four wins. Returning from their previous location in St. Louis, Missouri , the Rams’ 2016-2017 head coach, Jeff Fisher, contributed to continual loss and forced the Rams’ hand to fire him. According to an ESPN staff source, “There was the 165 career defeats, tying Dan Reeves for an NFL record … And there was, from a public-relations standpoint, the constant excuse-making which infuriated a fan base that clamored for his firing,” which set the precedent for Fishers’ release. Fortunately for the franchise, the Rams were able to steal Sean McVay, former offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins (2014-2017), as their new head coach. Tracing McVay to a lineage of NFL greatness, the Los Angeles Times discovered, “grandfather and grandson are separated in age by more than 50 years. But they share a common experience: Both played football at Miami (Ohio), known as the “Cradle of Coaches.” Having been the youngest head coach in NFL history, McVay, at only 30 years old, completely turned the team around, an impressive feat. Much of this comes from McVay’s decision to uptake former Falcons quarterback Matt LaFleur that, in fact, mended the worst offense in the country. The Ram’s offense had improved from last year. Todd Gurley is the running back for the LA Rams. Todd Gurley’s record is 1,305 yards last year this season, whereas the last season is 885 yards. Seeing that not just the running back had improved, Jared Goff, the Rams’ first string quarterback, had immensely emerged from an inexperienced rookie to an entirely different playmaker. This can also be traced to Greg Olson, the QB coach for Goff. Overall, the cumulation of the Rams’ improved head coach, offensive coordinator, and quarterback all contribute to the 11 win to five loss 2017 season.
