The Los Angeles Rams had an early exit in the NFL playoffs but they have all of the necessary parts to become elite.
The Rams went from one of the League’s worst teams in 2016 with a record of 4-12 to one of the league’s biggest surprises. In one season under first-year Head Coach Sean McVay, L.A. had a record of 11-5 and won the NFC West.
However, the young team was matched up against a tough veteran squad in the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL’s first Wild Card weekend, and they just weren’t experienced enough collectively to come away with a win.
Now, however, after a disappointing early exit from the playoffs following what was a rejuvenating season, L.A. has the experience to go along with their talent on the field and on the sidelines. The Rams’ future is still very promising and only good things should be expected from the team in 2018.
They have a lot to build on offensively and defensively and considering they had one of the best special team units in the league, you can bet L.A. will come back stronger and wiser in all three phases of the game–McVay will make sure of that.
The playoffs may have ended sooner than they wanted but the season was more than successful for the young team.
But now the pressure is on.
The Rams have everything they need to be an elite squad moving forward, and nothing less should be expected of them.
