Anytime an NFL legend shares his opinion, we should be all ears.

This time is no different.

The Los Angeles Rams have had a rich tradition of great teams and coaches, none might top former Head Coach Dick Vermeil who won a Superbowl with the team in 1999 after a long hiatus or “retirement” so-to-speak.

Vermeil shared his opinion on current Head Coach Sean McVay and it was nothing but gushing over his potential greatness:

Vermeil claims that McVay can be one of the greatest coaches this profession has ever seen, and who’s to argue? What McVay has done in his short 1.5-year career in Los Angeles has been downright legendary. Vermeil believes that his early exposure to football through his grandfather — John McVay — has to do with some of his success. That could very well be true as McVay was born into a life of football, it’s consumed him in his entirety. McVay is not only an offensive genius and innovator, he possesses an uncanny ability to connect with players.

As we wind down towards the end of the 2018 regular season, Sean McVay has a chance to cement his status as at least one of the greatest coaches in Rams history, and probably one of the best starts as a Head Coach across league history.
