The NFL's boy genius has proven himself to be quite the trash talker.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff took the team to the Super Bowl at the age of 24, and his performance was rewarded with a massive contract that gave him over $110 million in guaranteed money. While some decried Goff's success as merely a byproduct of McVay's innovative offense, he rebuked those beliefs on Wednesdayby saying that Goff has full control of the offense, unlike a certain quarterback in Green Bay.
Cripes. Clay Matthews must've given him the dirt.
Earlier in the offseason, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur balked at the idea of Aaron Rodgers, a guy who is , you know, AARON RODGERS, having the audacity and the freedom to change plays at the line of scrimmage.
Despite LaFleur's claims that the issue is in the past and Rodgers has the ability to audible, McVay and Goff's relationship appears to be a bit more harmonious that LaFleur and Rodgers' at this juncture.
Yes, Goff's rookie year under Jeff Fisher was terrible and he improved as soon as McVay got there. However, it's clear how restrictive Fisher's offense was, and McVay's ability to let Goff be himself as a quarterback, audibling included, is the biggest component in his recent success.
