Sean McVay was 17 the last time the Rams had a winning season

Following their decisive victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams have achieved 9 wins on the season -- the first time the club has earned 9 or more wins since 2003.

The world has changed considerably in the 14 years since the Rams last clinched a winning season. It might not seem like it was that long ago, but consider that George W. Bush was still in his first term as president in 2003. Barack Obama was a year away from being elected to the United States Senate, while Donald Trump was a year away from hosting his first season of The Apprentice.

Rams head coach Sean McVay was only 17 years old, and Jared Goff turned 9 in 2003. Feeling old yet?

Twitter and YouTube didn't exist yet; Facebook was still a year away. MySpace didn't even debut until September of 2003 (who was in your top six?)

If you don't feel ancient by now, take a look at these other mile-markers for what our world looked like the last time the Rams had more wins than losses.
