Week 8 Sean McVay Approval Poll

The Rams head into their bye in first place in the NFC West but still searching for respect. How do you feel about McVay’s rookie year so far?

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams have taken the NFL by storm over the first 7 weeks of the season. They lead the NFL with 30.3 points per game and have the largest point differential in the league as well with a +73 mark. If the playoffs were to start today, the Rams would be the #3 seed taking on the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers. Not a bad start for Sean McVay’s Rams.

The best part of the Rams 5-2 record is that they have done it convincingly. They’ve lost their 2 games by an average of 6.5 points while they’ve won by an average of 17.4 PPG. That is skewed a bit with a couple of blowouts, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

Looking back, I don’t know many Rams fans who were predicting a 5-2 start nor looking at the Rams as legitimate NFC contenders this season. Most people I know were looking at 2017 as a year where McVay would build a foundation for the future and use that as a platform for a playoff run in 2018. He’s proved to be magical with the offense though and Wade Phillips has done his part as well after a rough start to the season.

All in all, it’s very difficult to look at the first 7 weeks of McVay’s head coaching career as a tremendous success, but it’s your opinion here that matters, not mine.


On a scale of 1 (Bad) to 5 (Good), how would you grade Mcvay through 5 weeks?
