Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 2/8/24

Raheem Morris will be taking on the challenge and exciting opportunity of being the head coach for the Atlanta Falcons. One move that Morris has made was to bring Zac Robinson along with him to Atlanta. The Los Angeles Rams are going through another year of losing coaches to other teams as they see Morris, Robinson and others take on new roles elsewhere. Morris recently had some VERY high praise for Robinson. To be frank there can only be one Sean McVay and one Kyle Shanahan, but there can also only be one Robinson and Morris seems to think he can have what it takes to lead Atlanta’s offense in the right direction.

Getting the offense on track is something the Falcons desparately needs and this could be a huge opportunity for the new offensive coordinator. Will Robinson be able to turn this opportunity into a potential bigger opportunity (like a head coaching job) elsewhere?

Please let us know your thoughts and comment on whatever you’d like! Happy Thursday.

Raheem Morris sees former Rams QBs coach Zac Robinson as a young McVay, Shanahan (ramswire)

“Morris was introduced as the Falcons’ coach on Monday and when talking about Robinson, he mentioned how he reminds him of a young McVay and Kyle Shanahan. That’s some high praise for Robinson, given the success both McVay and Shanahan have had as young head coaches in the NFL.

Robinson, 37, is eight months younger than McVay and he’s been learning under the Rams head coach for the last five years. This is Robinson’s biggest opportunity in the NFL and he’ll call the offensive plays for the Falcons, putting him in line for a potential head coaching job down the line.”

“So why Robinson? According to Morris, it was in part because the 37-year-old reminds him of two of the best play callers in today’s NFL – 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, and Rams head coach Sean McVay.

“I was around the young Kyle Shanahan, and I saw him develop,” Morris said. “I saw Sean McVay when he was really young, and I saw him develop. Start naming names – Mike McDaniel, Steve Sarkisian … I see him in the same light.”
