I don't think there's a real problem

Off the top of your head how many plays can they run out of their 11 personnel? Is it 100? 200? more?

The point is if the league is truly catching up with McVay's offense perhaps part of the reason is the Rams have become predictable in what they run in specific down/distance situations. A little self scouting to identify and then change those tendencies would go a long way to keeping the defense off balance.

If the Rams run off right tackle on 3rd and 3 a lot doing so out of 12 personnel instead of 11 personnel probably won't accomplish a lot.

That being said, using more personnel groupings seems like a great way to utilize all the talent the Rams have accumulated on offense and to be honest it's probably the best way to get everyone involved.

What I would like to see from the Rams' offense this year, in no particular order:

- Rely on 11 personnel less in order to get the most out of Gurley, Henderson, Woods, Cooks, Kupp, Reynolds, Higbee, Everett, etc.
- Self scout and adjust to any patterns that emerge in order to minimize their predictability.
- Use sight adjustments so the offense can adjust to what the defense is actually doing instead of what it looked like they were doing pre-snap.

I don;t think there's a real problem, and Mike Florio saying there is certainly doesn't support the idea.

Here;s what I saw with the Rams offense.

It did worse when the OL was overmatched. That's a personnel issue that had mostly to do with the combo of Sullivan and Blythe.

It also didn't help when they lost Kupp.

Meanwhile, if you listen in on what is being said about the offense this year, they are considering none of the things we fans tend to talk about. They are working on adjusting more quickly to unaccustomed defensive looks. That sounds about right to me. That has nothing to do with whether they use 11 or 12 personnel. It has to do with how they react to post-snap looks.

Everett may get more snaps if he's up to it but I don't think that has anything to do with whether or not they run too much or too little 11 personnel. That's just the player--if Everett is a vital option then they use him. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.
