Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has opened up about what went wrong during this past season’s Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.
The Rams’ offense struggled mightily in the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, putting up just a field goal in the 13-3 loss.
Los Angeles had one of the NFL’s top offenses all season, but it failed to show up when it mattered the most.
McVay opened up about what went wrong during an interview with Sports Illustrated.
“You see stuff that worked in, say, Week Three, but you forget about the amount of stuff that’s taken place since Week Three,” McVay said. “You can watch so much film that you lose perspective.”
McVay admitted that he went overboard.
“I operated knowing I had another week,” McVay added. “That urgency to completely finalize the game plan wasn’t quite there, and that led to me watching so much film that you can almost water down your thought process. . . .
“You have so much time that you can over-prepare and get away from some of the things that helped you get there.”
McVay is currently enjoying his offseason. He and his girlfriend recently enjoyed a trip to the Kentucky Derby.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see McVay back in the Super Bowl very soon, either. Next time he’s in it, there will be less film watching.
