Sean McVay, the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, said that his team’s quarterback needed help after the offense struggled for the second game in a row as the club dropped their second consecutive game, bringing their record to 2-3 on the season.
We Must Be Capable of Helping Him
After his team’s defeat to the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 22-10, McVay declared, “I adore Matthew Stafford.” “He is competing and giving this squad all, he has for the best possible outcome.
He needs some aid. We have to be in a position to assist him.” The Rams have only scored one touchdown in the past nine quarters of play.
That touchdown came on a catch-and-run play that went for 75 yards and was completed by quarterback Matthew Stafford to wide receiver Cooper Kupp in the second quarter of Sunday’s game.
As the season has progressed, Stafford has been forced to play behind an offensive line that has sustained many injuries. Center Jeremiah Kolone is the ninth different offensive lineman that the Rams have used to start a game so far this season.
He began in place of Coleman Shelton, who started in place of Brian Allen, who started in place of Coleman Shelton. For the Rams, Joe Noteboom at left tackle and Rob Havenstein at right tackle are the only players to have started all five games.
This has been clear throughout the season, as Los Angeles has had a tough time keeping Stafford upright.
This brings Stafford’s total number of sacks for the season to 21, which is tied for the most by a Rams quarterback through the first five games of a season since the franchises merged in 1970. Stafford has sacked a total of five times on Sunday.
According to statistics compiled by ESPN Stats & Information, the Cowboys defense put him under pressure a total of 20 times, which is tied for the second-most in a single game throughout his career.
How’s The Quarterback’s Physique After So Many Hits
After the game, the quarterback was questioned about how his body is holding up after being hit so often during the season. Stafford said, “I feel okay,” and added, “It’s part of the game.”
According to data compiled by ESPN Stats & Information, while Stafford was under pressure on Sunday, he completed just six of fifteen passes for 59 yards and one interception.
When he was not under pressure, he had a completion percentage of 22 of 27 for 249 yards and a touchdown. McVay said, “I don’t know if I have that answer right now” when asked how the Rams can address the offensive line before getting many players back from injury.
“I don’t know if I have that solution right now.” But, as McVay put it, “we’ve got to be able to figure it out,” regardless of whether it is people who are playing right now or if we need to find out some other possibilities.
“However, it is not sufficient, and it is not restricted to a single player or a certain position.
We Have Various Ongoing Issues
However, several things continually present obvious problems for us, and these problems are keeping us from having the opportunity to perform at the same level that you all have seen us perform at in the past.”
The ground game has also been a weakness for Los Angeles, as seen by their performance against the Cowboys, in which they managed just 38 yards on 15 runs. McVay has emphasized the need for the Rams to “be able to run the football effectively.”
According to McVay, the Rams struggle to defend themselves when they are unable to run the ball effectively. This means that “you can’t allow yourself to let things grow.”
When the offense is having problems as it has been, quarterback Matthew Stafford turns within and asks himself, “What can I do more of?”
Stafford said that “we have to find a method to get the ball in the end zone” as the team’s primary goal.
“We have to do a better job of maintaining some drives, providing ourselves with some scenarios that are more easily managed, and figuring out a way to score more points.”
On Sunday, Stafford had a completion percentage of 58 percent, throwing for 308 yards with one touchdown and one interception. And at his postgame press conference, McVay emphasized that he does not believe there is much more that Stafford can do. This was the second time he had said this. McVay said, “I believe he’s doing all he can,” about the player. “I believe that he needs further assistance.
The guys had to step up their game while he was around. To be able to help him allow himself to sit on his back foot, just beyond even a hitch on certain things, we have to be able to help him in doing so.
But Matthew Stafford is one of my favorite authors. “I won’t leave that guy’s side till the very end of time.
And he is continuing to do all that is in his power to try to help our team in advancing the football and scoring points, and we need to be able to help him as much as possible.
