In five short years, Sean McVay went from offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins 8-7-1 to coach for the Super Bowl favorites. As is the case with many NFL coaches, it’s been a road of ups and downs for McVay. But he never stayed long. Now he’s just one win away from taking home the city’s first Super Bowl win since the Los Angeles Raiders won in 1983. While the Rams have won a Super Bowl before that , they never did that when they were based in LA.
They’ve been in a big game since moving to LA, and McVay has been heavily involved in that game. He became the youngest head coach in NFL history to take his team to the Super Bowl in 2019. Despite losing to the Patriots, it’s clear that something special is in production in LA and McVay is catalysts. Personally, I believe that a young, enthusiastic and extroverted HC will be more suitable than an old guy who has been doing the same job for 40 years. This was McVay’s last chance to beat Mike Tomlin as the youngest coach to win the Super Bowl at 36 years old. Interestingly, Zac Taylor will also be one of the youngest coaches to win a Super Bowl championship if the Bengals get upset.
McVay will also be the one to take down an aging Matthew Stafford and remind NFL fans why he was the No. 1 draft pick in 2009. Now 33 years old, Stafford looks better than ever and ranked in the Top 5 for passes, touches, and QBR.
A win would be the second in franchise history and would cement McVay as the league’s head coach for the next several decades. Speaking of cement, McVay will also earn an extra honor if the Rams win the Super Bowl next weekend. A cement podium has been erected in the “Cradle of Coaches” to await McVay’s addition. The Legendary Statue Garden at the University of Miami honors 11 alumni who eventually became legends on the coaching staff. Victory on February 13 will ensure his addition to the legends enshrined there including John Harbaugh and Woody Hayes.
