Sean McVay is back on his bull

  Sean McVay is back on his bull A few years ago Los Angeles Rams head coach was the talk of the football world. The parlor tricks of remembering sequences of plays from yesteryear or reciting the entire starting defensive lineup of the Chicago Bears captured the attention of the national media. But it…But as that 2018 season wound down, some of the defenses that faced the Rams started to figure him out. First it was the Detroit Lions, then those same Bears, then the Philadelphia Eagles, and ultimately the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. Their recipe? Ignore all the eye candy that McVay showed the defense presnap – usually in the form of jet motion from a wide receiver – and play quarters coverage in the secondary.

The Los Angeles Rams entered Sunday’s game against the 2-0 Buffalo Bills undefeated on the season after wins over the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles to open the season.

No one knows how good the Rams are at this early stage in the campaign after some major struggles last season. Sunday’s game against the Bills would be telling.

Unfortunately for Sean McVay’s squad, it’s not going swimmingly. The team was picked apart by MVP candidate Josh Allen to the tune of three total touchdowns in the first half alone.

With Buffalo up 21-3 in the third quarter, Rams quarterback Jared Goff made one of the weirdest mistakes we’ve seen from a professional quarterback in some time. Looking to get jumpstarted to open the third, McVay decided to go for it on 4th-and-4 from the Bills 48-yard line. In a mental mistake we’ve rarely seen, Goff actually threw the ball away.

Already under a microscope due to his lackluster play last season, Goff’s mistake led to another Bills touchdown and a 28-3 lead. Those watching the game reacted accordingly.

49ers QB Nick Mullens to start Week 3 vs. Giants

  49ers QB Nick Mullens to start Week 3 vs. Giants San Francisco received multiple trade offers from rival NFL teams this offseason for Mullens, adding to the interest the league showed in the signal-caller during the 2019 season. Fortunately, the 49ers turned down every inquiry they received and will have a dependable quarterback running their offense in Week 3.If Mullens were to suffer an injury on Sunday, with the team playing on the same field where multiple players went down, third-string quarterback C.J. Beathard would take over. Beathard is one of the best No. 3 quarterbacks in the NFL and is very familiar with Shanahan’s offense.
