Do you guys think McDaniels is an upgrade from Shurmur?


I know many people here were very upset and we had quite a few heated discussions last year on Pat's conservative play calling. Will it be different with McDaniels and Sam will be chucking it around the yard? Will the Rams stretch the field? The Rams certainly didnt do alot of that last year, but they also had alot of WR injuries to deal with. I did notice the Rams got much more conservative towards the end of the season.

 

I felt that the conservative play calling was coming from the Head Coach last year. My reasoning is simply that "what offensive coordinator lays it up?" There were also some comments in articles that said as much.

 

But I am really surprised by the fact that the Rams selected more of a risk taking coordinator. I am sure Spags had to have figured heavily in that decision. Maybe this year the Rams throw together a solid receiving corps based on guys that stepped up last year and guys coming back from injury. Maybe this being Sam's second year with a young Oline gelling with a full season playing together under their belt the Rams will be more potent. Maybe with all of that plus McDaniels means that the Rams have no intentions of being a ball control type offense with a mauling defense (which I feel is going to be lights out this year). They could come out of the gate this season bombing the football.

 

Anyways, Pat Shurmur had a pretty decent track record with the Eagles...McDaniels has a decent track record with the Patriots. Is this an upgrade?

 

I am still partly afraid that we will see the exact same offensive problems that we did last year, hopefully not.
