After a lopsided MNF loss, Rams coach Sean McVay makes a bold promise.


After a lopsided MNF loss, Rams coach Sean McVay makes a bold promise.

On Monday, November 15, the Los Angeles Rams arrived at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, like a Lamborghini with a full tank of gas, thanks to the additions of Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr.

Instead, they were met and crushed by the San Francisco 49ers, a full-speed 18-wheeler.

The Rams are a flashy, fast-paced team.

The 49ers were the tough guys who preferred violence to speed.

The fans were excited to see the outside linebacker who won Super Bowl MVP nearly five years ago at the same venue make his Rams debut, as well as the purple-haired three-time Pro Bowl wideout ready to run routes.

The 49ers, on the other hand, were in buzz kill mode leading up to the game.

And a home team that had yet to win at their venue in Silicon Valley, California, looked more like the team that pounded opponents en route to the NFC title in 2019.

The Rams were thrashed 31-10, dropping them to 7-3 and giving them their first losing streak in 2021.

After the 49ers’ thrashing, that Lamborghini-style offensive approach will require some repairs in their personal auto shop.

On Thursday, Sean McVay went from smiling and revealing Beckham’s surprise addition to calling the MNF game a humbling experience.

Tonight, as a team, Sean McVay says, was humbling.

McVay didn’t stop there.

He made the following promise to the “Rams House”:

“We’ll take a look at ourselves.”

“We’re going to figure this out, and we’re going to come back freaking swinging,” McVay said to the reporters in the room.

“I can assure you that the final seven games of the season will be exciting.”

What Went Wrong in the First Place?

The Rams have faced teams that are built from the ground up and emphasize running the ball in the last two weeks.

Tennessee ran the ball 26 times without 2,000-yard rusher Derrick Henry.

In a 28-16 victory, they only gained 69 yards on the ground but scored half of their touchdowns on the ground.

The 49ers took a similar approach: they trusted the run and used the ground game to create open lanes.

The 49ers chose to pitch or hand the ball 44 times…
