Over the course of the 2017 NFL season, LA Rams’ head coach Sean McVay has proven a lot of things.
He’s quieted any doubt that age and inexperience, as it pertains to being a head coach, doesn’t adversely impact a team’s ability to win — to make a postseason. He’s proven that effectively changing a team’s mantra, their culture, can be done overnight. And he’s proven that believing in your players will get them to believe in you. These are the facts.
And on Friday, with an assist from general manager Les Snead’s wife, Kara, McVay has proven that he can see the future. Well, maybe not, but he certainly saw Todd Gurley’s impressive 2017 bounce-back season coming.
Since .@TG3II isn’t playing Sunday, let me share! B4 training camp Sean was telling us how jacked he was for Gurley and how he could use him, so I asked him for a Gurley prediction... wonderfully optimistic at time— now crazy prescient... prediction on left— actual on right... pic.twitter.com/q3zUq1oxzw— khs (@KaraHenderson) December 29, 2017
McVay might’ve sold the 2017 MVP candidate a bit short on the touchdown figure, but all things considered, that’s some pretty impressive guesswork.
Now, one can only hope Mrs. Snead tweets out his Super Bowl prediction from earlier this year. But, let’s not jinx it. That can wait until after February 4, 2018.
