Watch: Sean McVay knows Bears’ defense inside and out
Sean McVay’s incredible football knowledge has been on display many times before, and it was back at work on Wednesday.
McVay’s Los Angeles Rams have a big game on Sunday night against the Chicago Bears. The head coach talked with the media this week about his opponent and offered an extremely comprehensive breakdown of their defense. In a matter of a minute, he rattled off Chicago’s starting defense and the strengths of each player.
I want a coach with this type of attention to detail. Full scouting report on the Bears defense. Literally all 11 starters.. pic.twitter.com/MPYPkh3gR1

You can choose whether you want to be impressed by this or not, but let me tell you straight up: This is impressive. Sure, part of a coach’s job is to study film and prepare for opponents, but I can promise you there are plenty of head coaches who can’t do that. Heck, it was only two years ago that a head coach was clueless about his opponent’s running backs days before their game.
That coach was fired 12 days after his embarrassing gaffe. The man we’re impressed by now has his job.
