The LA Rams’ trade with the Lions involving the quarterback Matthew Stafford was considered one of the biggest moves this offseason. And in the very first week, the 33 year old quarterback showed the kind of magic that he can do.

His phenomenal spell of 20 passes out of 26 attempts, covering 321 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions, against the Bears made it clear to the franchise that every dime was well spent.

I think that’s kind of one of those things, he’s gifted, he’s got a great ability to be able to change his arm slot and make all types of throws, whether it be short, intermediate, or down the field, but he’s — you’re not limited in anything you can do with him in the passing game.

Furthermore, McVay’s confidence in the quarterback speaks in itself that he feels proud to have bet on the right player at the right time. As it can be seen that Stafford brings more to the table than Goff. Although Goff led the franchise to the Super Bowl championship in 2018 but failed to do the same in the next two seasons.

Money well spent by the LA Rams

However, McVay deserves much of an appreciation as the quarterback. Stafford seemed to be a very costly option, as he was being exchanged with the Super Bowl winning quarterback Goff along with two first-round picks. No matter how risky the move may seem, his exceptional decision making abilities brought the franchise back on track.

Although, this one match cannot seal the fate of the franchise. The quarterback still has to go a long way to make his presence count. Stafford will return against the Colts and McVay will be looking forward to see his star quarterback bring value to his team.
