A few of years ago it looked like the Rams were certainly headed for a Super Bowl win in the near future. They had the hot shot young offensive guru as their head coach in Sean McVay and the young QB with a lot of promise in Jared Goff. Oh yea, and the best defensive player in the league in Aaron Donald.
Fast forward to now, they’re still pretty good but they haven’t gotten that Super Bowl win yet. The defense seems to be better since they’ve added Jalen Ramsey but the offense hasn’t been up to par which would shock a lot of people if you told them that a few years ago. Because of this, McVay hasn’t committed to Goff for next season saying,
“For me to fully answer that, I think those are conversations that you have between (you and) your players first,” McVay said Sunday, when asked what he needs to feel confident in Goff going into 2021, via the team’s official site. “To be able to have the right plan of attack, I think you’ve got to be able to take a step back, evaluate the entirety of it. What I will say that you certainly can’t take away, that I mentioned to you guys each the last couple of weeks, (is that) for him to come back from a thumb surgery, do what he did in Seattle, do what he did yesterday, it’s a real credit to him, his competitiveness, his resilience. I think there’s a lot of positives from that.”
Now, according to Nick Shook of NFL.com, McVay and Goff need “marriage counseling in the offseason to fix their relationship.
“We know John Wolford came in and they were excited about him when Jared Goff got hurt and the way he performed, and then he got hurt,” Wyche said. “So I think a lot of people are wondering if they’re going to bring in a veteran type of quarterback to push Jared Goff this offseason. Or at least have that threat there as a backup to see if they can elevate Goff.
“The people I’ve spoken to said basically, at this moment, the relationship with Goff and McVay: not great. They need marriage counseling is what one person said to me. I think this is something that they’re going to be able to work through, but there’s got to be some healing and that’s not just with Jared Goff’s injured thumb.”
That’s definitely one of the stories to keep up with in the offseason. If the Rams can upgrade at QB they’d probably be the favorites to come out of the NFC next year.
