Sean McVay did not mind Marcus Peters’ obscene TD celebration
Sean McVay is the youngest head coach in the NFL, and it shows sometimes.
Speaking with the media on Friday, the Los Angeles Rams coach said that he did not mind cornerback Marcus Peters’ obscene touchdown celebration during the team’s Week 1 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
“At the end of the day this is a game,” said McVay, per Clarence Daniels of the Rams’ official site. “It’s fun, he was having fun, guys were enjoying that.”
Peters, who was just acquired by the Rams in March, intercepted a Derek Carr pass in the fourth quarter and took it 50 yards to the house. On his way to the end zone, Peters flipped backwards and grabbed his crotch in a tribute of sorts to the celebration of close friend and Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.

The NFL did not see things McVay’s way however and fined Peters $13,000 for the celebration. On the bright side though, the 32-year-old McVay’s relatability may be almost as big of an asset as his incredible mind.
