7 Reasons Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win Super Bowl LIII
1. Coach Sean McVay
The team feeds off their coach’s energy. McVay’s got more energy than any coach in the NFL. He’s constantly boosting his team’s morale while coming up with the best possible schemes to beat the toughest defenses in the league.
McVay has a never say die attitude. He called the perfect plays at the perfect time in the Rams’ upset win over the Saints. He’ll be on point come Feb. 3.
2. Aaron Donald
The best overall player in the NFL dominated what many thought was a Top 5 NFL offensive line on Sunday. Donald’s created havoc all season long. Even though New England’s offensive line is stout, Donald should find creases. If he can get to Tom Brady, the Patriots won’t move the football.
3. Two-headed monster at running back
Todd Gurley might be the best running back in the NFL. He mustn’t carry the load, though. C.J. Anderson, a late season pickup, again played effectively when rushing against a very good New Orleans defense. When the Rams must throw, they can play both Anderson and Gurley because Anderson’s also an effective blocker.
4. Underrated wide receivers
The Rams lost Cooper Kupp during the regular season. They struggled without Kupp for a few games, but discovered a gem in Gerald Everett. Listed as a tight-end, the 6’ 3”, 240 lbs Everett plays like a wide receiver. He made important catch after important catch in the NFC Championship. Even though neither Robert Woods nor Brandin Cooks are spoken of in the same breath as Antonio Brown and Julio Jones, both are effective and great in open space.
5. Dante Fowler
The Rams acquired Fowler from the Jacksonville Jaguars before the trade deadline. Fowler’s the reason the Rams’ defense went from having a mediocre 4 in the 3-4 to having one of the best 4 in the 3-4. Fowler’s one of those linebackers that opens things up for everybody. Cory Littleton’s become effective because he plays next to Fowler.
6. Rams are enthusiastic
Young teams can exude too much energy when they step onto the field for the Super Bowl. That might have happened to the Atlanta Falcons, who played so hard and so fast early on in the 2017 Super Bowl that they had nothing left in the tank for the fourth quarter and overtime.
That most likely won’t happen to the Rams, though, because Sean McVay won’t let it. With McVay in charge, the Rams will use their youth and enthusiasm as an advantage.
7. New England’s dynasty will end at some point
The Patriots’ dynasty’s going to end. It’s just a matter of when. It makes sense for the Rams, a young team with a young coach and up and coming quarterback, to end it on February 3.
