One key member of the "Greatest Show on Turf" sees some similarities between the modern-day Rams and his historic squad.
"I'm not saying that's where they are now," receiver Torry Holt told Gary Klein of the L.A. Times during a phone interview, "but that's where this offense is trending."
Goff and Co. aren't to 'Greatest Show' level yet, but there are many similarities between the teams thus far, including how much they've improved from the previous season.
It's notable that the Rams made their initial leap into offensive legend when Mike Martz was hired as offensive coordinator in 1999.
Holt gave coach Sean McVay credit for the Rams going from a stuck-in-the-mud Jeff Fisher days to a high-flying artistic offense in less than a year.
"He's a shot in the arm for that organization, a shot in the arm for that offense and shot in the arm for Jared Goff's development," Holt said.
"There was some resemblance to the 'The Greatest Show on Turf,'" Holt said. "I saw some of that flash, particularly on those two plays."
McVay's squad has a long, long way to go before we enshrine them with Holt's teams. But considering how painful they were to watch last year, it's an astonishing turnaround.
