Sean McVay discusses what Jared Goff learned from Rams Super Bowl loss
Rams head coach Sean McVay discussed what his young quarterback learned from the Super Bowl loss:
“It’s really just been about everything you hear us talk about – let’s learn from the past. It’s really just another game. It was a big game, no doubt about it, but there were things that I think both he (Goff) and I would definitely say we expect to be better if those opportunities present themselves again. I think it mainly starts with me, but, for him, that mental fortitude is a great trait that he has. That mental toughness and that ability to say, ‘I’m going to learn from the past, but I’m not going to let it hinder my ability to move forward.”
Recently, the Rams made Goff one of the richest quarterbacks in the NFL; giving him a four-year, $134 million extension that includes $110 million in guarantees (most in league history). It goes to show how committed the Rams are to Goff being the leader of this team for years to come.
In just three seasons, Goff has consistently made improvements to his game since his abysmal rookie season. The California native became the fourth-youngest quarterback to start in a Super Bowl last season.
However, like many others, he fell at the hand of the Patriots and Bill Belichick as they managed to score only three points. McVay understands that instead of loathing in the loss, the Rams and Goff can use it as a learning experience.
