Rams’ Sean McVay Discusses Managing Jared Goff
When it comes to how Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay manages quarterback Jared Good, a lot of ideas have been tossed around.
Some have called it “micro-managing” others may say “helicoptering”, some have suggested that McVay could be illegally feeding Goff information on his headset prior to the ball being snapped, and McVay has heard most of the chatter.
Despite the whispers, McVay is confident in the way he is handling the 2nd-year player’s development and on-field play.
“We operate in the huddle, at the line of scrimmage – we’ve got a lot of smart players and we change up our tempos throughout the course of the game and really, just like anything else, whether Jared is calling a couple plays in the huddle or one call, we do the same thing, we just do it at the line of scrimmage,” McVay said when talking with reporters, via PFT.
“We talk about it all the time, the quarterbacks being an extension of the coaching staff, and that is certainly what Jared has become, that’s what Sean [Mannion] is, and there’s a lot of times we’ll snap it outside of the 15 seconds, under the 15, we’re doing various tempos throughout the course of the game.
“To say that you’re in his ear – because I’ve seen some of the things out there — I think it’s a discredit to what Jared has done and, really, when you just look at it with the experiences that I’ve had in Washington and here, it’s totally at the quarterbacks’ discretion whether they want to have you be able to talk to them, give them any sort of reminders or if they say, ‘Just give me the play and then let me go ahead and just play the position.”
