In turn, let’s take a quick glimpse at our hazy football-shaped crystal ball to see if Sean McVay and Co. can become the first team since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots to win the Lombardi Trophy in consecutive seasons.

Who Else is on the Staff Apart from Stafford?
The Rams went all-in this 2021 NFL season, breaking the bank for huge superstar upgrades on both sides of the ball with the acquisitions of Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller. However, now that they’ve succeeded in their mission, will Von and OBJ be back for another run next season?
Both Beckham and Miller were obviously short-term rentals for Los Angeles, which ranks 27th in the league in available cap space heading into the 2022 offseason. In turn, the Rams may not have much leverage to work with in retooling their roster this coming season, especially with the team trading away all but their fifth and seventh-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft in order to make the Beckham and Miller trades happen.
Retirement for Two All-Time Greats Also a Possibility
Another couple of big-time names could be calling it a career following the Rams’ Super Bowl LVI victory. The first is three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, and the other being four-time Pro Bowl tackle Andrew Whitworth.
Donald finished with two sacks of Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow in Super Bowl LVI and can more than happily call it a career with the best finale. It’s a little more bittersweet for Whitworth, who spent his first 10 seasons in the NFL as a Bengal before joining the Rams in 2017. The 40-year-old lineman could opt to play one last season regardless if it’s in LA, Cincy, or elsewhere, but his impact for whichever team that’s in dire need of help at offensive line is more than likely limited to a massive degree at this stage in his career.
The Rams did what they intended to do this 2021 NFL season, and that’s to win the Lombardi Trophy. However, there are a bunch of external factors involving their best players likely on their way out of Los Angeles due to various circumstances, leaving a lot of holes that need to be filled during the offseason and with little cap room and draft assets to work with at that.
Then again, with Matthew Stafford likely to play out the remainder of his NFL career in the City of Angels alongside superstar wide receiver Cooper Kupp, the Rams still have a potent passing game to work with coupled with the brilliant football mind of head coach Sean McVay. It’ll be interesting to find out, though, if the Rams can sustain this level of success after building the superteam that they had just envisioned and worked out to full fruition this past season.
