Rams coach Sean McVay is actually human.
Sean McVay expressed regret about how the deal went down with his former quarterback.
“Yes, I wish there was better, clearer communication,” McVay said Monday. “To say that it was perfectly handled on my end, I wouldn’t be totally accurate in that. I’ll never claim to be perfect, but I will try to learn from some things that I can do better, and I think that was one of them without a doubt.”
The Rams are 5-1 and heavily favored against the 0-6 Lions in the Week 7 matchup.
On Sunday, Jared Goff will visit the Rams for a showdown with his old team.

“I think he’ll be received well,” McVay said about Goff’s return to L.A., where he spent five seasons after the Rams traded up 15 spots to select him first overall in 2016. “I think the L.A. fans and I think the Rams fans know what a great job he had done and how much — I think how much he meant to the Rams organization both as a football player and also the community.”
McVay, continued, says he’s appreciative of everything Goff did for the Rams.
“I would to it a little bit differently when those situations arise in the future."

Goff claimed he was blindsided by the move.

“You don’t want to catch guys off guard,” McVay said. “It came together a lot faster than anybody anticipated, but yeah, of course I think that any time that tough decisions and things like that where people are affected, you always want to be as understanding, as empathetic as possible, think about it through the other person’s lens and there’s certainly things that I know I would do it a little bit differently if — when those situations arise in the future.”
McVay insisted Monday that there was no tipping point in his relationship with Goff and that the chance to acquire Stafford was too great to pass.
“That was why that decision was made and that was why things came together as quickly as they did because we felt like it was a rare opportunity to acquire a player of Matthew’s caliber,” McVay said. “Those opportunities just don’t come up often.”
Felt like McVay just ghosted Goff when he found another lover with Stafford.
McVay is ruthless, the guy just wants to win that badly.
