Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has seen a dramatic drop in his stock over the past year. Consider that in 2018 at this time he was touted as the young new genius that would reinvent the game. Any coach that had any ties to McVay was a hot candidate for a vacant head job anywhere in the league. However, one year later McVay looks like any other coach that is struggling for Pro Football betting success. Counter to McVay is the Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. Seattle’s mentor is “old money” as a proven winner at all levels.
