In a joking way, Pete Carroll interrupted new Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay’s media session at the NFL Combine on Thursday.
Even though the Los Angeles Rams don’t have a first-round pick in this year’s draft due to the Jared Goff trade with the Tennessee Titans, new head coach Sean McVay is well aware there’s still plenty of talent to scope out at the 2017 NFL combine. With the 37th overall (second round), there’s a good chance the Rams could be lucky enough to land one of the key players invited to this year’s combine, as the next few days will be extremely important for McVay and company when it comes to scouting talent.
Of course, just because these next few days will be busy for all 32 teams doesn’t mean McVay can’t have some fun with other head coaches, such as Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks. Even though the two head coaches will be facing off against each other twice a year as members of the NFC West, it’s good to know Carroll has a sense of humor towards his division rival, as displayed in the video below.
To see Carroll interrupt McVay’s media session on Thursday by asking if it was alright for opposing coaches to ask questions was absolutely hysterical since this was one of the rare times the two rivals won’t feel some sort of intensity towards one another. While Los Angeles felt confident enough to make McVay the youngest head coach in history, the former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator realizes Carroll deserves consideration for being one of the best at what he does with Seattle reaching the playoffs in each of the last five seasons.
Then again, the Rams have won four of their last six games against the Seahawks, which means it will be interesting to see what happens when McVay and Carroll square off for the first time during the 2017 season.
