The Los Angeles Rams are heading to the Super Bowl thanks in part (a large part) due to the most egregious pass interference no-call in recent memory.
Rams coach Sean McVay just didn’t see what all this outrage was about.
McVay was asked about the no-call after the Rams’ 26-23 overtime win, and he was not going to throw any fault on the officials. Instead, he complimented the refs on how the game was officiated. He said:
“I thought it was a bang-bang type play. The one thing I respect about the refs today is that they let the guys compete and they let the guys play. I thought Nickell Robey made a nice play. They snapped it on a quick snap, had a little wheel route coming out of the backfield. Thought it was a competitive type play. Certainly I’m not going to complain about the way that was officiated. I thought that it was a competitive play.”
Obviously, McVay wasn’t going to take anything away from his team’s win and say, “Yeah, the refs missed it. lol Saints.”
But he knew. He had to know.
“They let the guys play.”
