What are five burning questions for the Los Angeles Rams on offense?

The Los Angeles Rams will go into 2020 with one goal in mind: Make the playoffs and get back to relevancy. After two consecutive playoff appearances in 2017 and 2018 under head coach Sean McVay, the Rams would limp to nine-win season that would see them miss the playoffs, despite being in the playoff race until the very end of the season.

This offseason, the team also went through a major transition. As the team prepares for the inaugural season at SoFi Stadium, it will also be without offensive playmakers Todd Gurley and Brandin Cooks, who the team moved on from this offseason.

Then there’s Jared Goff, who seemed to be playing like an MVP candidate in 2018 but would finish 2019 with just 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 2019, a major regression from his 2018 season that saw him throw 32 touchdowns compared to just 12 interceptions.

And don’t forget the rest of the NFC West, which cannot be underestimated. The Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, and San Francisco 49ers all could be playoff contenders in 2020.  What does that mean for the Rams, who have lost some pieces on both sides of the ball this offseason?

With Gurley and Cooks gone, as well as the rest of the NFL seemingly, catching up to Goff and McVay, it’s clear that the Rams have some big questions on offense that they’ll need to answer. With that said, what are five burning questions on offense that the Rams have? Let’s examine some and find out.
