The Los Angeles Rams have seen the Los Angeles Lakers win the NBA Championship and the Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series this year, and now they want to continue the city’s new trend of titles.
“I mean that’s the first thing you hear is, all right, now it’s your turn,” Rams quarterback Jared Goff said, according to ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry. “And I mean — we’ve talked as a team since these two teams have done it, or I shouldn’t say as a team, but as a group chat within the team, these two teams have done it and now it’s our turn. It’s something that we’d like to do.”
“Just seeing that for the city and the success, I don’t know that you’re any more motivated to try to kind of be on par with those teams,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said. “But you certainly want to make sure that you continue to compete and produce at a high level because you got to be great to be relevant here in this city and I think that’s awesome.”
The Rams have come close to a Super Bowl title, back in Super Bowl LII, and are off to a good start this season, but will it be enough to take them to the promised land?
“Of course,” Goff said. “We got all the pieces, we’re winning games, we’re playing well on offense, defense and special teams. We always believe in ourselves and we’ve been there once with a lot of the same people and we know how to get there. Just got to finish it off and hopefully this is the year.”
