The 2016-17 season was a very disappointing season for the Los Angeles Rams as they went 4-12 and saw head coach Jeff Fisher get fired midseason. Rams quarterback and former Oregon State Beaver Sean Mannion joined Travis and Chad on Rip City Drive to discuss the team’s first season in Los Angeles and to give his thoughts on the new regime under Sean McVay.
Mannion said it’s not that big of a deal that the players have to learn a new system under first-year head coach Sean McVay.
“I know the players are all really excited to play for coach McVay and the more you’re in football, the more you realize there’s nothing wildly different. The bottom line, it’s still the same game.”
Mannion also said it doesn’t bother him or any of the other players that McVay is such a young coach.
“I think I can speak for the players and say it’s not something that any of us give any thought to because it’s very obvious that he’s a great football coach.”
Finally he gave his thoughts on the news that former Oregon running back Thomas Tyner will be joining the Beavers for the upcoming season in Corvallis.
“I think just with the way things started going towards the end of last season with the run game and with Ryan [Nall], now you add Thomas to that mix, I think that will be really exciting for every one.”
