True Chalk talk
A good exchange happened at the 13:00 mark where a high school coach asked how to motivate a team after a heartbreaking loss for the championship title. His message was to embrace all the experiences of life good and bad, while not allowing those experiences to inhibit current and future progress.
Another good exchange tests McVay’s insight when he is asked which two quarterback drills would he endorse if he could only have two at the 17:15 mark. McVay cites drills that change the quarterback must move his drop, reset, and change the arm angle. Then he goes into mobility where he changes his launch points. Both of these suggest that the Rams head coach embraces the opportunity to work with mobility at the quarterback position. Check out the video and the Rams head coach.
