Sean McVay: I don’t want to run away from adversity, I want to run through it

The question surrounding Sean McVay for most of last week was whether he’d be leaving his post as the Rams head coach, but Friday brought word that he’s decided to stay with the team for the 2023 season.

With that out of the way, the question moved to why he flirted with the idea of leaving for the second straight season before opting back in with the team. McVay provided an answer to that question to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports and it focused on not wanting to walk away after the team stumbled to a 5-12 record after winning the Super Bowl last season.

“I wanted to take some time to really know I could restore and renew the passion and zest I need, and after leaning on family and friends and taking time to reflect it became clear to me. I don’t want to run away from adversity, I want to run through it,” McVay said.

Saturday brought word that the Rams are going to pick up quarterback Matthew Stafford‘s option, so there will be a lot of familiar faces back as the Rams try to move things back in the right direction in 2023.

  1. I feel bad for people who buy McVay’s schtick. For everyone’s sake, I hope he “takes some time” away from the microphones and spares NFL fans from any more of his BS-speak.

  2. The season started off weird with the Cam Akers situation and other issues, and just never got on track.

  3. Translated: I couldnt find a better deal, and even though I’d rather hae dull razor bladesrun under my toenails, I’ll suck it up for another season in LA.

  4. Stop talking McVay your season is over and nobody cares right now – results matter; so focus on those.

    McVay speaks in complete sentences that are grammatically correct. That is not an act. Rather, it is called being well educated.

  6. Yep his coaching record should reflect buying a ring glad he stayed for another horrible season next year. Expect this for a year or two then he will walk get traded for needed picks to rebuild. 2026 is when his contract runs out I don’t think he gets close to that.

  7. The only way Coach McVay is going to run through adversity is by getting 5 new starters on the Offensive Line and let the RB’s do it for him. The money for Wagner and Robinson should have been used on the OL.

  8. Adversity?
    You get paid extremely well to coach a game.
    How much of a delusional narcissist do you have to be to think that you’re facing a difficult situation here?

    This is an incomplete sentence: “Rather, it is called being well educated.” Please tell us all about your ability to speak about an educational level.

  10. McVay was the Player of the Year in high school in the state of Georgia, beating out all those great athletes, including Calvin Johnson (Megatron). He’s not just pretending. He really is a pretty tough guy.

  11. McVay has been to two Super Bowls with two different QBs. He’s not just relying on one elite QB. So, he’s actually done it. He has football smarts, book smarts, and social intelligence. When you have all that going for you, you’re going to face a lot of jealousy. I’m reading some right now. Sad.

    I assume you prefer incoherent mumbling and a middling record?

  13. Sensitive McVay fanboys, I withdraw all criticism I had for Sean McVay. Have a good weekend and be positive.

  14. Really, the job you wanted didn’t pan out so to save face “you run through adversity”. Just be real coach, let me guess, we’ll be be playing this same game next year.

    It’s all good. Hard to fault you when there is a clear shortage of relevant articles being written about the Pats.

    Ok tough guy why not just say that last weekend? You really needed a week to think about using those words? LOL!!!

  17. Well, this is year #2 he’s had to evaluate after the season. Please, do not become Aaron Rodgers. It gets old FAST. You made the trades. You won a Super Bowl. Play it out. Stop re-evaluating every fricken off season. Be a man. Commit to the plan!
