After losing the biggest game of his life, Sean McVay took some time to reflect.
The 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots stung.
McVay sounds like he’s still sorting through what happened.
“When you look at those couple of weeks, there’s an element of you want to work hard, but you also want to work smart,” McVay said on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast in reference to the two-week buildup to the Super Bowl. “You can have so many different things and not be mindful of the progression of the season. You think about just there’s usually about a four- to six-game span you’re operating on while still being mindful of situations. And then you’ve got two weeks and you don’t want to short yourself.”
When asked how he coped with the defeat, McVay revealed:
He did “a lot of drinking.”
McVay also spoke about his relationship with Belichick:
“I got a chance to meet him a year ago. He’s been really good to me,” McVay said. “It was more of a couple games and then you say something and it kind of gets blown out of proportion.”

There’s zero doubt in my mind McVay will get another shot at a Superbowl.
The guy is too young and too talented not to.
And let’s not forget about that memory of his.
