ATLANTA (AP) — charge of the Los Angeles Rams. His coaching tenure had been a rocket ride all the way to the Super Bowl.Until Bill Belichick sent this bright football mind and his exciting team plummeting back to Earth.What McVay does about it will determine whether the Rams are still an ascending powerhouse or another NFL contender broken by the New England Patriots.After Belichick’s defense turned McVay’s offense into the worst version anyone had ever seen 2019 Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams , the Rams’ 33-year-old offensive guru was visibly frustrated and embarrassed. His clenched jaw in postgame interviews also signified a determination to never let it happen again.“The thing that is so tough about all of this is the finality to it,” McVay said Sunday night after his Rams failed to score a touchdown for only the second time in his 36 games in charge. “Usually, if you go through some adversity, you get a chance to bounce back right away. This one is going to stick with you. It just stings in your gut. I’m still kind of numb right now, but I have so much love for these players and these coaches. That’s where it really eats at you, because you feel like you didn’t do your part to help them achieve success.“This is going to be a very humbling, tough one that you learn from. But you have to demonstrate that mental toughness you talk about, and that is all I know how to do.”McVay could have been speaking partly to convince himself after he coached only the second team in 53 Super Bowls to fail to score a touchdown. The wunderkind’s confidence appeared to be shaken to its core by a New England defense that held the 11th highest-scoring team in NFL history to 260 total yards, six first downs in the first three quarters and their fewest points in McVay’s era.“It’s embarrassing,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “It stings to play that way. You’d almost rather score a ton and lose that way, but that would take away from what the defense did. They gave us every opportunity to win.”McVay thrives on X’s and O’s, and he will have six months to scheme new ways to attack the similar zone defenses used late in the year by Detroit Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , Chicago and New England to throttle the Rams’ passing game. He also will endeavor to teach Jared Goff to make better decisions under pressure after the young quarterback’s stinker of a Super Bowl .General manager Les Snead has big calls to make on soon-to-be free agents and roster vacancies. The Rams will return with a wealth of talent, but they must determine whether their 4-3 record in their final seven games was a sign of bigger flaws.Financially speaking, the Rams’ championship window remains wide open for at least one more season before Goff likely gets a significant raise and consumes a larger chunk of their cap space in 2020. They can deal with their disappointment by adding players, not culling them — and after the bold moves of the last offseason, there is no reason to suspect the Rams won’t go all in again in 2019.Although the Rams are hurting, a franchise with 13 consecutive non-winning seasons before McVay arrived is not likely to panic over one Super Bowl setback, particularly since much of its core — running back Todd Gurley, two-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald and 1,200-yard receivers Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods — is locked into place with long-term deals.“The first thing (Super Bowl MVP) Julian Edelman said to me when I was congratulated him after the game was, ‘You guys are going to be really good for a long time,'” Whitworth said.Los Angeles’ unrestricted free agents include defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, safety Lamarcus Joyner Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , edge rusher Dante Fowler and left guard Rodger Saffold.Although Suh loves living in LA and got his first career playoff victory this season, he likely could make more money elsewhere. The Rams must think about using the franchise tag on Fowler, who clearly would like to stay.“We’ll be ready next year,” Fowler said after the Super Bowl.Linebacker Cory Littleton, the Rams’ leading tackler, leads a shorter list of restricted free agents.They also will await a decision by Whitworth, the oldest offensive lineman in the NFL. The 37-year-old left tackle still plays superbly, but he has not committed to returning for the third season of his contract, saying Sunday he will “see how the offseason plays out.”While the defense could require several changes, the fate of the Rams’ stalwart offensive line is a key. No starter has missed a game due to injury in McVay’s two seasons, but center John Sullivan will be 34 and Saffold will be 31 by training camp. After another stellar season, Saffold could be expensive to keep.No matter the changes Taylor Rapp black jersey , the Rams’ returning players will carry the motivation of this Super Bowl loss — and so will McVay, who sees no end to his work after two wildly successful seasons.“There is no other way to say it,” McVay said. “I got outcoached.”Los Angeles Rams versus Arizona Cardinals: Stock up, stock down The Los Angeles Rams are fresh off a massive win in week two versus the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams simply dominated this game from start to finish. They double-down at home in week three versus the Los Angeles Chargers. But before we get to that, let’s take a look at who’s in the stock up and stock down trends:Stock DownRB John KellyThis doesn’t even have anything to do with John Kelly himself. Malcolm Brown was the only RB outside of Todd Gurley who was active in week one with Justin Davis joining him in week two. After Gurley left the game with cramps sometime in the third quarter, Brown jumped in and the play didn’t falter at all. Brown had a massive pancake block where he destroyed Cardinals ILB Josh Bynes on a blitz pickup. Brown had 12 carries for 46 yards and proved why he’s worthy of being the second RB right now. Although Kelly looked electric in the preseason, it’s hard to see any road to playing time right now.Stock UpWR Brandin CooksCooks was a man amongst boys on Sunday. He registered seven receptions for 159 yards. Cooks is being used short (screens), intermediate (crossers/digs), and deep (posts/verts/corners). The Rams have a well thought-out and concise plan to use their weapon, and it’s worked to perfection so far. Cooks simply looks unstoppable at this point.KR/PR JoJo NatsonNatson only got to return one kick which went for 22 yards. His strong performance stems from the punt return side of it where Natson had six returns totaling 133 yards (22 yards on average) and a long of 60. He looked electric, explosive, and decisive. Look for Natson to continue to impress as a return man.P Johnny HekkerHekker only got to punt the ball twice in this game (41 yards on average Taylor Rapp Jersey Mens , long of 60) though it was the extra curriculars that put him here! K Greg Zuerlein pulled his groin in the pregame warmup and that made Hekker the defacto kicker. Hekker went 1/1 on field goal tries (20 yards), kicked off, and even went 1/1 on extra points!CB Aqib TalibTalib was tremendous in week two (also week one) as he was shutdown in his coverage. Talib was targeted three times and didn’t allow a catch per pro football focus. Not only that, but he was breaking on the ball like a hawk registering two pass breakups. The trade for Aqib Talib is looking absolutely brilliant at this point in time.RG Austin BlytheBlythe was an absolute monster throughout the entire game. His run blocking was pristine as he collected three pancake blocks by my count. Not only that, but he did a great job in pass protection too as I counted only one slip up. He’s not the biggest or strongest guy but Blythe simply does the little things well. He’s a very smart player who’s mobility works in the offense and he’s gelling perfectly with the starting offensive line right now. There’s no way the Rams should pull Blythe from the starting right guard spot.DT Ndamukong SuhSuh was an absolute freak on Sunday. He absolutely destroyed rookie C Mason Cole the entire game, both in the run and pass. Suh did a tremendous job collapsing the pocket when the Cardinals did decide to pass, and he played downright possessed when playing the run. I mean he affected nearly every single run and nearly ruined the Cardinals’ running game on his own.
