Sean McVay downplays Rams’ strong start: ‘We haven’t arrived by any stretch’
Sean McVay isn’t getting ahead of himself despite his team’s 5-2 start.
After a 33-0 dismantling of the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7, the Los Angeles Rams head coach downplayed their early-season success.
“We haven’t arrived by any stretch,” said McVay, per Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “But 5-2 is a good feeling. But that’s all it is right now.”
There’s definitely still a lot of football to be played, especially in a fairly tough NFC West. But there’s also a ton of reason for encouragement with the Rams now leading the entire NFL in both point differential (+74) and points per game (30.3). That’s significant improvement from a 2016 campaign where they couldn’t even reach five wins in 16 tries, much less seven, but it sounds like McVay is staying focused on ways that the team can continue to improve.
