Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has been well-aware of the doubters since he took the job this past offseason. As the youngest head coach in NFL history, there are bound to be some naysayers.
However, it was a bit of a surprise to hear former St. Louis Rams head coach and offensive coordinator Mike Martz share such harsh criticisms of McVay. However, the young coach simply brushed off his comments and responded with nothing but class during a press conference held by the Los Angeles Rams.
“Coach Martz is a guy that I’ve always had a huge amount of respect for with what he’s accomplished, especially being an offensive coach,” McVay said. “I don’t know coach Martz, I met him a handful of years ago at the combine. But like I said, I have a lot of respect for what he’s accomplished and I can’t say anything but good things about what he’s done and what kind of coach he is.”
There is no denying McVay’s resume is a bit green and there is a lot left to prove. However, he has done a nice job of adjusting to every obstacle the offseason has thrown him so far.
The defense is currently dealing with a number of nagging injuries as the front office continues to negotiate defensive tackle Aaron Donald’s looming contract situation. All while being tasked with improving the league’s worst offense in the last few years.With that said, McVay will be far too busy to address every critic as he prepares for the 2017 NFL season.
