By David J. PhillipThe Rams were in the midst of their fourth straight losing season, and they’d been the subject of some negative attention in recent months, thanks to a string of coaching changes and the departure of former coach Jeff Fisher.
But then a new coach, Sean McVay, came on board in December, and things started to change.
McVay was known as a quarterback whisperer, but he was also known as the guy who didn’t have a reputation for coaching in the NFL.
He’d been a head coach in the Pac-10, and a head football coach in college, and he was known for building a winning team around quarterbacks and offensive line coach Larry Coker.
He was also one of the few offensive coaches to be a part of an NFL team for at least five years, with the Chargers in 2007.
And then, in a season that saw him lose his starting quarterback, a rookie quarterback, and four offensive linemen, McVays first game as the Rams head coach was on the road against the Green Bay Packers, and the next game against the New York Giants.
The Rams lost, 34-21.
The Rams had made some moves to bolster their offense, and some of those moves had paid off.
McVAY’s offensive coordinator, John DeFilippo, was an assistant under offensive coordinator Mike Martz for the Falcons, and Martz was a former head coach at USC.
The addition of Martz, and then undrafted free agent Brian Hoyer, made the Rams a much more potent offense.
Hoyer, who has been the starting quarterback for the Rams, threw for 726 yards and five touchdowns, but the Rams also ran the ball more than any other team in the league.
They averaged 4.9 yards per carry, which was the highest mark of any team in football.
Hoyer was the third rookie to start for the team, joining Jared Goff and Derek Carr.
Hiring Martz made it easier for McVoys offensive line to play better.
The additions of Marts and Hoyer helped the Rams become one of two teams in the top 10 in total offense in the last five years.
McMahon was a coach on the Rams who was known to use his offense as a teaching tool for quarterbacks, and his offensive staff was often seen at practice.
He also often coached quarterbacks with some of the best offensive line coaches in the game.
The coaching staff in Ramsville was known by a lot of people, even though it wasn’t necessarily known as well as Martz’s, the offensive coordinator who was a part-time head coach for the Seahawks.
But the Rams didn’t always get the credit they deserved.
The team had some good moments.
The team was a top-10 offense in 2016 and was a bottom-five offense last year, which would have been a good accomplishment if McVoy hadn’t been fired for what many people saw as a poor performance.
McSweeney was fired by the Rams for not giving the team the right coaching, which is the kind of coaching that McViehts predecessor, Joe Gibbs, did well with the Baltimore Ravens in the 1990s.
McSweeney, the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, was also a head coaching hire for the Washington Redskins in 2008, but after a 2-12 season in his first year, Gibbs hired him back as a head man.
McConnell’s firing didn’t do anything to help the Rams offense, but it was a setback for McSweeneys predecessor, Gibbs, who was also the head coach of the New Orleans Saints.
The Saints were also a top 10 offense in 2015 and ranked third in 2016, and McShewey and McVee were two of the coordinators who were instrumental in the team winning championships.
Mc Sweeneyn was fired for a lack of performance on offense, which the team was expected to improve upon.
It was the first time in McStyles history that the Rams had gone to the playoffs.
The offensive line was a major concern going into the season, especially when it came to getting the most out of a young and inexperienced offensive line, as well.
After McSvey left the job, it looked like he was going to start over with a young, inexperienced line.
He did that, and it was disappointing.
McKenzie’s firing, and that of McSlyne and McKweene, were both for a variety of reasons.
McKenzie was the offensive line coordinator for seven years in New England.
He led the Patriots to four Super Bowls, and one more win than his former coordinator, Gibbs.
Mc Kweene’s firing was also for the same reason as McScey’s.
Gibbs was fired after two years on the job.
McHweene was a head guy who was going up against McSee, who had been with the Patriots since 2010.
Mc McCweene had been
