Super Bowl 53: Sean McVay looks to learn ‘consistency’ from Bill Belichick

first_img“I think some of the things I’d like to learn from when you watch and appreciate what he’s done for so long is the consistency,” McVay said. “Even when you just hear him speak, the wealth of knowledge and experience that he’s pulling from is incredible. And he’s got such an ownership and mastery on offense, defense and special teams.”You never see the Patriots beat themselves.”The Rams and Patriots will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday. Sean McVay has already proven so much in his first two seasons at the helm in Los Angeles.The Rams coach finds it “humbling and flattering” that teams are now out to find the “next Sean McVay”, but credited the team’s effort and organization’s success as the reason for his. “Football is the ultimate team game,” McVay said during his Thursday press conference. “It truly takes everybody and I think that’s what’s special about what we’ve got going on this year.”McVay’s first Super Bowl appearance poses the ultimate test as he prepares to face off against Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who at age 66 is twice McVay’s age and boasts more than four decades of coaching experience in the NFL. The Patriots enter an NFL-record 11th Super Bowl and ninth under Belichick with veteran Tom Brady under center.Since the Rams hired McVay in 2017, the team is tied for the NFL’s best win percentage (.750) and has the league’s top-scoring offense (31.4). On the other hand, the Patriots have NFL’s highest win percentage (.740) and the No. 1 scoring offense (27.3) since hiring Belichick in 2000.last_img read more
