Matthew Stafford On The Rams’ Offensive Struggles

Quarterback Matthew Stafford once again struggled in the Rams’ 22 – 10 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Head coach Sean McVay says Matthew Stafford needs more help as Los Angeles continues to be ravaged by injury.

Center Jeremiah Kolone was the ninth different offensive lineman to start for the Rams this season. Only LT Joe Noteboom and RT Rob Havenstein have started all five games.

As a result, the Rams have only scored one touchdown in their last nine quarters of football.

Matthew Stafford has found himself under increased pressure due to the inconsistencies ahead of him.

He was sacked five times on Sunday, which makes it 21 sacks on the season. Dallas pressured him 20 times, which is the second-most pressures Stafford has faced in a game throughout his entire career.

“I love Matthew Stafford,” Sean McVay said afterwards.

“He is competing and doing everything in his power for this team. He needs some help. We’ve got to be able to help him.

“But we’ve got to be able to figure it out, whether it’s guys that are playing right now or whether we need to figure out some other options,” McVay said. “But it’s not good enough and it’s not exclusive to one player, to one position. But there are some things that consistently are glaring issues for us that are preventing us a chance to be able to operate at a level that you guys have seen from us.”

“We’ve got to find a way to get the ball in the end zone,” Stafford said. “Got to do a better job sustaining some drives, giving ourselves some more manageable situations and find a way to get more points.”
