Los Angeles Rams need to avoid 'Super Bowl hangover', says head coach Sean McVay

The LA Rams may have clinched the Super Bowl last year, but head coach Sean McVay is not allowing his side to become complacent this summer.

The LA Rams enjoyed the Super Bowl LVI ring ceremony on Thursday, allowing Sean McVay's side one more chance to celebrate last season's achievements.

But following that event, McVay is now keen to see his side set full focus on the upcoming season, where they'll look to become the first side to defend their Super Bowl title in 18 years.

The Rams start their training camp on Saturday ahead of the new season, and McVay sees it as the ideal point in time to start fresh in 2022.

"It was kind of good timing, because now it represents, 'Let's turn the page,'" McVay said on Friday.

"Let's not minimize what a great year last year was, but that's not going to have anything to do with this year."

There's a reason why no team has been able to defend their Super Bowl title in the last 18 years, with many sides losing focus after lifting the trophy.

The 'Super Bowl hangover' as put by McVay, is exactly what the Rams need to shake off this off-season.

"A hangover, to me, what that entails is guys think they're better than they are," McVay added.

"They stop working the right way, complacency sets in and the previous success you think is going to have anything to do with your future success.

"We've got the right kind of guys in our locker room, the right kind of coaches that are intrinsically motivated."

McVay has done a good job this summer of keeping his squad together on good terms. The priority this season was to retain the championship-winning squad, and the Rams have done just that with big-money extensions for both Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp.

Allen Robinson has also joined the squad to fill the void left by the departing Odell Beckham Jr., while reshaping the offensive line after losing both Andrew Whitworth and Austin Corbett will also be on McVay's mind.

With just over a month to go, there's plenty for the Rams to work on ahead of their season-opener against the Buffalo Bills on September 9.
