- Rams head coach Sean McVay has been known to show off his ridiculous memory.
- On Wednesday, McVay pulled off his latest feat, breaking down the entire Bears starting defensive unit name-by-name in just about a minute.
- The two teams meet this weekend in Chicago for “Sunday Night Football” on NBC.
Sean McVay is not your standard NFL coach.
Since taking over the head coaching job for the Los Angeles Rams ahead of the 2017 season at just 30 years old, McVay has proved one of the most capable leaders in the NFL, helping the Rams along to an 11-5 regular season record last year and a 10-2 start to 2018.
But beyond his prowess as a head coach, McVay has regularly made headlines for his ridiculous memory – most notably his ability to recall essentially any play his teams have ever run.
On Wednesday, McVay gave a window into how his impressive memory and his abilities as a head coach go hand-in-hand. Speaking with reporters, McVay began to break down the Bears defense ahead of the Rams upcoming game in Chicago.
After just 67 seconds, McVay had run through the Bears’ entire defensive unit, breaking down their strengths or how they are used along the way.

I want a coach with this type of attention to detail. Full scouting report on the Bears defense. Literally all 11 starters.. pic.twitter.com/MPYPkh3gR1

While it might not seem the most impressive feat for a coach to break down his upcoming opponent with such a completist’s spirit, when compared to the usual bits and pieces we get from coaches at the podium, McVay’s stands out.
The Bears defense better be ready to play come Sunday, because, by the sound of it, McVay will have the Rams prepared.
