I remember every call Ive had with my

State Farm agent, talking auto and home insurance.

Paul! The calls weve had! Amazing!

Enough about that.

Sean McVay.

How are you, man?

- Good to see ya, man. - Good to see you too.

- All right. - Dude, youre the man, dude.

- Yeah, right.

- Get over here.

Last year, we stood here, and I didnt realize we were gonna set the internet ablaze.

- (Laughing)

- Im sure you got sent that clip a million times– - Yeah, it was fun. - of you remembering everything.

Fifty eight seconds left in the fourth quarter.

- Jamison Crowder wheel route on the right sideline.

I dont remember anything except for that stuff.

- Except for football? - Yeah, exactly.

- I was wondering, is your fiancee ever like, “You forgot the groceries today.”

- Oh, yeah, shes like, “Youre a total vegetable in life except for when it comes to football.”

So, no doubt about it.

- So, if Sean McVay forgets things, were all screwed.

So were all safe. - (Laughing)

- We know that you can remember every play you ever called.

- I dont know about that.

- But: Do you remember the plays in which you played?

Were gonna take you on a journey

- Try to get those memories out of my mind.

- No, no, no!

Cuz this isMr. Georgia Football.”

Do you know whats gonna happen in this play?

- (McVay) Thats, uh, its gonna be a touchdown pass down the right sideline right here.

- Oh, my gosh.

Lets watch this in all of its glory.

Do you remember the

- I get drilled right here.

- You do on the sideline.

- “876 Trail Flood.”

- Thats incredible.

- Yeah, I mean, but thats a

- In the Georgia Dome50-yard touchdown bomb.

- I just heaved it up as far as I could and then got drilled.

And then I heard the cheers and just was hoping it wasnt a pick.

- So you didnt even see it.

- No. - Youre just on the sideline.

- I didnt see it. My freaking helmet.

I was in the, I was in the freaking stands right there, it felt like.

- All right.

- Good catch.

- I got another one for ya.

You werent just a thrower.

- I was more of a runner. - My man McVay had wheels.

So this run.

Look at that juke.

- You cant show me gettinhawked, though.

I dont finish it.

I get tackled at the 2 right here.

I got killed from, for this one by my buddies, that I got tackled right here.

- (Laughing) - I still havent lived that one down.

My buddies, they say, “Hey, hows this guy from Tucker dointhat hawked you down?”

- They still talk to you about this run?

- Oh, man, of course. I get ragged on by my buddies. - This is a 78-yard run.

- Shoulda been 80.

- You also apparently were calling your own plays in high school?

- (Laughing) - Lets bring it up.

- Yeah.

- This is one of the greatest play-action fakes

Ive ever seen in my entire life. - It was a good fake.

Look at them: They were, they were celebratinright there.

- They all bit.

- Seeem there? Theyre celebratin’.

- Hold on. Let me watch that again.

- Watch these guys on the defense.

They get up. Im glad the ref didnt blow it dead.

Watchem. Theyre celebrating like— - Oh, yeah.

Theyre jumpininto each other. - They think they made the play.

- (Lefkoe) Now I heard that you called this play?

Or you diagrammed this?

What was the name of it.

- This is, this isFake 32 Wham Naked Left.”

- (Laughing)

- So this was, this was one of the best defenses in the state.

They were really tough to, to get the ball in.

And you know, were inside the 5.

This was third down.

I say, “Hey, they way theyre pursuin’, I think the32 Wham Nakedwould work.” And,

they, you know, we all agreed, and fortunately I didnt get drilled in the back of the head.

And we walked in, and we ended up winninthis game right here.

- When I see a quarterback willing to completely turn his back to the defense

- Its a leap of faith.

- You, you sold it.

And this was the playoffs, right?

- This is, this is good ball-handling right therehiding it.

Good ball-handling.

Thats the only thing I could dothe things that really take no talent.

(Laughing) - You need to show this to Jared.

This is how he needs to sell play action this year.

- Thatnow I cant even look at that.

Look at that bowl cut, man.

You look like you just put a bowl right over my head and just cut right around it.

- This is every Georgia high school athlete for, like, the last two decades.

- Its horrible.

I look like Im from, uh, the one MTV showHoover High.

- Yes, exactly!

Hoover Highthats what Im thinking.

- (McVay) Exactly.

- I know how you played football, so I believe that there was one movie that I think

- (Laughing) - and there was one character that really spoke to you.

(Drum roll) - Varsity Blues? - Yes.

- Oh, yeah. - I believe

- Dont compare me to Tweeder.

- I think that you were a Tweeder guy.

- (Laughing) Nah, I dont know if I was really anyone.

I was pretty serious then.

You know, Tweeder had more fun.

I wish I was like Tweeder in high school where I enjoyed myself a little bit more.

I probably was too serious in high school.

- But what I want to do is break down the realisticif these plays could ever be used.

Billy Bob snaps, lays a nice block.

TweederI dont know what defense that corner was playing.

- This guys playing jam with no backup.

- And we got Billy Bob out there.

Tweeders gonna catch it.

I mean, do you remember this, like?

- Oh, yeah.

Double stop sign right there.

Thats how you know Tweeder wasnt really playinreceiver.

TheHook and Ladder”?

- Who on the Rams is the most Billy Bob?

I think its that fourth-round draft pick you guys just got.

The defensive line— - Greg Gaines?

- Greg Gaines is a little Billy Bob.

- Greg Gaines is Billy Bob right now.

Thats exactly right. - I saw him on the practice field, and I was

- Id like to see, he looks really, you know, runninwith the ball

I can see Big Greg Gaines.

- Right? Its perfect.

- Thats pretty good right there. - All right. I got another one for ya.

Uh, dont get angry at me.

- Freaking predictable.

- So let me ask you: Was Rudy offsides?

- Absolutely. - Lets take a look.


All right, so he lines up.

He has no idea where to go.

Aww, the janitor was so intense.

I mean, this had to juice you up a little bit though?

- Nope.

Im kidding. Im being hard on olRudy.

- So, right there, you think hes offsides right there?

- Its called an elite get-off, man.

Hes keying the ball right there.

He doesnt get blocked.

He finds a way to finish the play.

Man, great play byRuuudy!”

- Ruuudy!


Small white guys, man.

Its tough.

- (Laughing) - It all goes back to that.

The last play that I really want to get involved, though is

- (McVay) Little Giants?

- Yes.

- Little Giants is a, I love Little Giants.

- I think that youreevery team is looking for their Icebox, right?

But do you remember the name of this play?

- “Annexation of Puerto Rico”?

- Thats my man right there. - There ya go, man.

- Annexation of Puerto Rico: They give the ball to Icebox.

Its the oldFumblerooski.”

- It really is. Its a great play.

- Can we bring theFumblerooskiback?

I dont even know if thats legal.

- I dont either, honestly.

You know, we change these rules so often, I gotta refer to somebody else.

You know, we got coaches thatre way better experts.

I, I, sometimes I dont even know what a rule is anymore.

- What, what were ruling on things anymore. - Yeah. We dont know what a catch is.

We dont know what pass interferenceSorry.
