Sean McVay hilariously tells how he pushed Rams to trade for Matthew Stafford

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay revealed he was a "few tequilas in" when he called the front office to push for a Matthew Stafford trade. After the 2020 season, McVay realized the Rams definitely needed a change at the quarterback spot if they wanted to win a Super Bowl.

At the time when McVay called the Rams' front office, he was in Cabo San Lucas. While on vacation in Mexico, McVay stumled upon Stafford. The Rams contacted the Detroiot Lions and Stafford became a Ram. The rest is history as Stafford led the Rams to a Super Bowl victory in his first season in Los Angeles.

"Here's the f---ing deal, OK? We can sit here and exist, and be OK winning nine to 11 games, and losing in the f---ing divisional round and feel like, 'Oh, everything's OK.' Or, we could let our motherf---ing n--s hang, and go trade for this f---ing quarterback, and give ourselves a chance to go win a f---ing world championship.

You ready to f---ing do this or what?" McVay explained to ESPN.

Stafford dealing with an elbow issue

Stafford has been dealing with an elbow issue throughout the entire offseason and last week NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the quarterback was dealing with a "bad tendinitis." "My understanding, this elbow issue, which actually cropped up in the spring, is described to me as bad tendinitis," Rapoport said late last week.

"It is a tendon issue in his throwing elbow. [He] had a little of a procedure -- not a surgery, but a procedure -- more of a PRP-type deal in the offseason to try to manage it. Did not get to a place where he really needs it to be.

I think long-term, everyone in Los Angeles thinks this is going to be fine. I don't sense any stress about it, but it's a quarterback. It's a throwing arm. Obviously, something we need to monitor going forward." When Stafford was asked about his troublesome shoulder over the weekend, he insisted it wasn't something serious.

"I don't know if you guys were watching, I felt like I could make any throw I wanted to today," Stafford said, per the NFL website. "I'm just trying to be smart when I get those opportunities to make sure I can come out here, cut it loose, turn it loose like I did today and go from there."
