Sean McVay says he and Bill Belichick basically texted 'after every one of our games' this season
The two met at the NFL Combine
If there's one thing that will always get Bill Belichick talking, it's good football conversation. While he's known for his stoic answers to people asking about Rob Gronkowski trade rumors or Tom Brady drama, Belichick has also developed a reputation for glowing about special teams play and his breakdowns of key plays. With that in mind, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Belichick and Sean McVay, given McVay's similarly brilliant football mind.
"This is wild: This season, he has basically texted me after every one of our games," McVay said of his Super Bowl opponent this year. "After we beat Minnesota in September, he texted, 'Man, you guys are really explosive and impressive and fun to watch. Congratulations—keep it rolling.' For him to even take the time to say congrats, it's pretty cool."
McVay and the Rams will play Belichick and the Patriots on Sunday in the Super Bowl. McVay, 33, will try to become the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl in NFL history. Belichick, at 66, will try to become the oldest.
