Sean McVay isn’t phased by Rams stumble vs. 49ers

Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay isn’t pressing the panic button after their tough loss against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night in Week 6 of the NFL.

The 24-16 defeat against their division rival served as a sort of wake-up call for the Rams before the season reaches its halfway point. But the 34-year-old McVay told reporters after the game that he remains unfazed.

“Number one, you always look at the tape, that’s where the truth lies. “We correct that. We have accountability and ownership for where we can all be better, coaches and players alike.”

He’s confident that they can correct their mistakes as they allowed the 49ers to have a strong start. They also struggled against the stingy defense, with star quarterback Jared Goff limited to just a 35.5 QBR. But Sean McVay believes the setback doesn’t reflect the Rams’ play and credited the 49ers’ laudable performance.

“I don’t believe that last night is reflective of the caliber that we can play at, really on all three phases. I think we have some representative tape to be able to point that out. But, you know, that’s why it’s such a slim and small margin for error. You give the Niners credit, they did a nice job.”

The Rams dropped to 4-2 and will try to bounce back and regain a more stable footing in the NFC. But it will be easier said than done as they will next face the visiting Chicago Bears, who have surprised many with their 5-1 record with Super Bowl LII MVP and star quarterback Nick Foles steering the ship.
