Today, the Los Angeles Rams finally made their first exciting move since moving to LA. They signed 30 year old Sean McVay, as their new Head Coach. The youngest Head Coach in NFL history as a matter of fact, I'm assuming many of you could've guessed that since it's crazy a man that young could get a job that prestigious. His first year he's going to be younger than a lot of players on the team,this raises eyebrows from fans as we've never really experienced what's that's like, or how that plays out. Mike Tomlin was 34 when he became Head Coach of the Steelers, but there's a big difference between 34 and 31, which is how old McVay will be when the season starts. Honestly, I believe age is just a number, it doesn't factor at all into someone's maturity level, and as long as he can gain the respect of his players it shouldn't be a problem.
As for his qualifictions, McVay is obviously very young, so one might think he doesn't have a lot of experience in the league.That assumption would be wrong. He's been the wide receiver coach for the Bucs and he's been on the Redskins coaching staff since 2010. He's been the offensive coordinator for the Redskins for the past 3 seasons. That means he's slightly responsible for the emergence of Kurt Cousins and we all know the only reason the Redskins won 8 games was because how good their offense was. If McVay can develop Goff, making him into the #1 pick the Rams hoped he'd be when they drafted him, and get this offense finally scoring some touchdowns, the Rams will be a very good team. McVay is inheriting a ready made defense that can matchup with the best of em, so it's not like he's coming into a tire fire personnel wise.The Rams hired McVay for his offensive genius, mostly, but I think some other things factored in as well.
After I watched part of McVay's press conference it was totally clear why they brought him in. Obviously so he can get this offense moving in the right direction like I said before, but I believe it's also a PR move. LA is exciting, Jeff Fisher was old, boring, and washed up. McVay on the other hand is young, exciting, and is a new face in the league so it drags in some interest from around the league. He could potentially end up being the JFK of Head Coaches, that's my prediction about this guy, he's going to be an absolute star, and the Rams made a great choice despite what the haters are saying.
