Most teams would be on the hunt less than a year after winning a Super Bowl, but the Los Angeles Rams find themselves in third place in a surprisingly competitive NFC West trending in the wrong direction.
So after watching their last contest slip away late against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rams head coach Sean McVay candidly said changes needed to be made for the team to be successful again. – and got into this mix of things that need to change. .
Did McVay just admit his days as head coach in Los Angeles are numbered?
Before every Rams fan presses the panic button — no, Sean McVay won’t be out of a job before the end of the season. However, he knows he needs to change his approach so his team can get back on track.
“I’m a big part of that. I have to do better,” McVay told reporters after Sunday’s game, via CBS Sports. “We’re going to stay connected through this, but we need to be able to look within and figure out what are some of the solutions, changes, adjustments, different things that we need to do to be able to get different results and different production from our attack.”
The Rams are currently 3-5 after Sunday’s loss and are on course to be the 16th team in NFL history to miss the playoffs a year after winning a Super Bowl. Although Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp still play at an exceptional level, LA’s offensive line has been severely hampering goal production and their defense isn’t doing enough to minimize the damage on the other side of the ball.
McVay admits he doesn’t yet know the secret to turning the Rams’ season around. But he should probably find out as soon as possible.
Los Angeles hosts the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday.
