Rams film study: How Sean McVay keeps winning with motion

Rams HC Sean McVay has outsmarted the NFL once again

Syndication: Arizona Republic Rob Schumacher/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK

Sean McVay has been known for offensive production, and a certain style, since he was hired as the head coach of the Rams in 2017. But in no season prior to the current one has he been tasked with as big of a project as getting a roster lacking experience and draft pedigree, yet McVay has L.A. humming along at least as good as they were in 2018.

Could the Rams get back to the Super Bowl with McVay’s brand of football this year?

YouTuber Alex Rollins posted a great breakdown of McVay’s 2023 version of his offense this week, highlighting pre-snap motion, why L.A. does it so often, and why Kyren Williams has been such an important component to that success this year. Watch the short 10-minute breakdown here:

The Rams are just two wins away from finishing a remarkable 10-7, which would improve last season’s record by five wins. Even 9-8 would be well ahead of expectations going into the season.

Another YouTuber, QB School’s JT O’Sullivan, posted another Matthew Stafford breakdown last week.

Another YouTuber, Tape Analysis, posted his own take on the Rams.

Did Lions get screwed?

If you watched Saturday Night Football, you saw one of the most unusual finishes to a game in NFL history. Not because the Lions attempted to win with a two-point conversion instead of sending the game to OT with a PAT, but because of the penalty on Taylor Decker and Dan Campbell’s insistence to go for two again after the flag.

A lot of Rams fans are familiar, if not rooting for, the Detroit Lions. Do you think the Lions and Jared Goff got screwed?
