How young is Sean McVay? The Rams coach, who turned 33 this week, is nine years younger than Tom Brady, 13 years younger than Adam Vinatieri and half the age of Bill Belichick.

He is four months older than Julian Edelman.

McVay is so young that he played against Edelman in college.

Kent State, quarterbacked by Edelman, won the 2006 meeting against Miami of Ohio. Edelman completed 14 of 22 passes for 244 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while running for 61 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. McVay caught four passes for 47 yards and added a two-point conversion.

A year later, the RedHawks beat Kent State with McVay catching three passes for 37 yards. Edelman threw for 260 passing yards and rushed for 93 yards but scored no touchdowns and threw two interceptions.

Edelman has no memory of playing McVay.

“Honestly, I don’t [remember], but it was pretty cool to see some footage. It was cool,” Edelman told reports in Foxboro on Friday.

Edelman has nothing but respect for McVay the head coach.

“It’s very remarkable. He’s a stud,” Edelman said. “He’s my age, and he’s leading an organization to a Super Bowl. It’s unbelievable, and it’s a testament to how much he knows the game, how hard he works. I love seeing it. He’s a MAC guy. You know that coach McVay and that coaching staff is going to have that team ready, and we’re going to have to take advantage of the preparation time that we have and get ready, too.”

  1. There’s a hilarious photo out there of the 2 of them in their college unis and the shots placed side by side. Both look like they’re about 15 years old.

  2. I can’t remember half my teammates thru my playing days let alone guys from other schools I might have played 2 games against out of all I played.

    It goes to show what a great memory McVay has,while what an awful memory Adelman has too.

    Or it could simply be illustrative of the fact that even when his D is on the field a starting QB (Edelman) is somewhat more occupied than a #3 WR whose career totals were 39 receptions for 312 yards.

  4. Lmao And now you see just how scrambled JEs brain is that he can’t remember something so simple from just 10 years ago. It’s not like he was playing with or against much if any talent to enter the NFL at any level. He’ll be in a nursing home within 10 years from now.

    Umm, actually what it means is pretty boy McVay and grandaddy got him into college in Ohio and he sucked at football. Meanwhile, was a great QB in college.

  6. Does or doesn’t whatever. I don’t remember everyone I played against either (with, yes). But I did play against a guy way back when named Kent Graham. Went to OSU if I recall, short journeyman career in the NFL.

    And what was in that day officially called a DE back then, I did get a sack thank you! It’s like the one time a golfer aces the hole. “Let me tell you about that one day…” lol!

  7. Edelmans brains are clearly scrambled. Cheating your way out of the concussion protocol takes a toll on you.

  8. Some people are good physically but others are not, but are better cerebrally. The best players do not always make the best coaches. Very few players in the Hall of Fame became good coaches.

  9. No idea why some guys find this unusual. The starting quarterback, who eventually wound up one of the better WRs in the NFL, probably didn’t look across the field at the opposing college team and say, “that receiver with the 3 catches, I gotta keep my eye on him, he’s going to be some kind of coach after those 43 yards.”

  10. Too bad for Edelman.If he’d remembered, he could get a job as a HC next year. the press release would say, not only does he know Sean McVay, he remembers playing against him in college.

    Chances are AZ will be in the hunt for a new coach.

  11. If you think about it McVay probably remembers the qb he played against getting drafted and going to The Patriots where there was already Tom Brady. It may have made some bug news at those schools considering This was 1.5 years removed from Bradys ACL tear. May have thought he was as being drafted as a backup/replacement. I would have remembered that as well.
