I would say OBJ was also a factor in them in the playoffs as he made some big catches for them. This is now two prime time games in the opening month where they may as well been wearing Texans jerseys and I get that Shanahan owns McVay but when you look at how putrid that offense was against the Broncos last week for them to just carve through the Rams defense like butter all night is telling that the Rams are too top heavy and their depth stinks. Cooper Kupp is a great receiver but surely a mastermind coordinator could draw up more than just throwing to him all game with a sprinkling of balls to Higbee. Robinson looks finished as the guy just can't get open anymore. Hopefully they are at least somewhat competitive in their next three prime time games as it's pretty embarrassing to see a defending Super Bowl winner look so bad on a national stage.

To me it just speaks to how important a good offensive line is.

They had a top offensive line in the league last year, but 3 of the 5 guys on that line last year weren’t on the line last night.

If you can’t run the ball, and you can’t protect the passer, then your offense is going to stink.

Also: Late to the party here but that Mahomes touchdown pass on Sunday night might be one of the best NFL plays I've ever seen a guy make, just ridiculous.

That entire system is based on having a good line, zone blocking scheme and running through those lanes.

It's actually a really basic offence I am not sure how McVay is touted as a offensive genius. Some of the guys from that coaching tree have better offences.

The amazing thing is that no lineman were caught upfield after all that scrambling.

Also, Cooper Kupp with 14 catches and only 122 yards means SF did its job in keeping the play in front of them. Deep safeties are the infield shift of football.

I believe Aikman said during the game that McVay and Shanahan were the best offensive minds in the game last night which I feel is an insult to Andy Reid.
