Sean McVay Uses 1 Word To Describe Matthew Stafford’s Play

The Los Angeles Rams lost to rival San Francisco 49ers 24-9 on Monday, failing to score a touchdown in a game for the first time in ages.  But Rams head coach Sean McVay isn’t pointing a finger – at least not at his quarterback.

  Speaking to the media this week, McVay had a word to describe how quarterback Matthew Stafford played against the 49ers: excellent.  He believes Stafford did “a lot of good things” and that the margin for error was small.

  “If you look at some of the different things he was dealing with, I thought he played excellently,” McVay said via ProFootballTalk.  “I thought he did great things. I think the margin for error was so small… I thought this was a performance he could build on.”

  Maybe it’s Kopiam, or maybe McVay is seeing something the rest of us aren’t.  Whatever the case, it wasn’t good enough against the 49ers — or the Buffalo Bills — three weeks ago.

  It was the second week in a row that Stafford failed to throw for a touchdown in a game, after throwing a further four post-season games in 20 straight regular seasons.  Meanwhile, Stafford leads the NFL with six interceptions.

  The Los Angeles Rams are 2-2 this season with a tough home game against the Dallas Cowboys, before an easy game against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.

  Will Stafford and the Rams return from Monday’s performance with a win over the Cowboys this weekend?
