One thing that I think has been worth emphasizing this offseason as it pertains to the LA Rams is not just the addition of Matthew Stafford, but the continuity of the offense and coaching staff that will be supporting him in 2021. Not only is Sean McVay going into his fifth season with the Rams, but so are Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Tyler Higbee, and Andrew Whitworth, while Rob Havenstein is going into year seven with LA.
So too is wide receivers coach Eric Yarber going into his fifth year on the job and that’s probably going to be a welcomed sight for Kupp and Woods at 2021 training camp, as so many of the other assistants have been turned over throughout the years.
I expect Stafford to excel more with the Rams than he ever did with the Detroit Lions, but will Woods and Kupp experience new career-highs also after getting “leveled up” from Jared Goff? That remains to be seen but Woods and Kupp could still be the most effective duo in the NFC West, if not perhaps the NFL.
