Sean McVay discusses the challenge of preparing for Patriots QB Tom Brady
At this point, it cannot be argued that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of the best players in NFL history — if not the best. With that being said, even Brady and the Patriots appeared human at times this season.
Come playoff time and especially Super Bowl time, though, Brady and his teammates begin to look like super-humans. With the Patriots reaching yet another Super Bowl, the team’s third straight, it is now time for head coach Sean McVay and the highly-talented Los Angeles Rams to take a crack at knocking off the heralded AFC dynasty.
When asked about how he plans on slowing down the always potent Brady, McVay made it crystal clear that it will be far from an easy task.
“You’re talking about guys that have been doing it as consistent as anybody,” McVay said, via 247 Sports. “You just look at the amount of Super Bowl appearances that he’s had. Just the way that he competes is understanding. The way that he plays the quarterback position the right way. When you’re teaching that position or coaching that position, whether it’s Drew [Brees] or Tom [Brady], these are guys that they look — this is what it’s supposed to look like when you’re playing that position at a high level, with the decision making, the timing, the rhythm, the accuracy, the ownership of what they’re trying to get done. I have so much respect for him and he’s an elite competitor that, it’s going to be a great challenge, just like Drew Brees was for us last week.”
