Michael Silver: Sean McVay ‘crushes’ interviews; Packers execs leading candidates for GM job

Jan 9, 2017 at 1:08 PM--


NFL insider Michael Silver is hearing good things about Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay and the two interviews that he has had. The first was on Thursday with the Los Angeles Rams and the second was this morning with the San Francisco 49ers. "Sean McVay has had two interviews and crushed them both," Tweeted Silver.


While he is currently the youngest coordinator in the league, the hiring of McVay, who is only 30, would make him the NFL's youngest-ever head coach. "McVay's supporters, however, insist his football age far outstrips his calendar age," wrote Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee in a great piece about McVay.

McVay began his NFL coaching career in 2008 as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had served as the tight ends coach and assistant tight ends coach with Washington. McVay then became the offensive coordinator in 2014. This past season, McVay guided a Washington offense that was ranked third in total offense and second in passing.

Of course, Sean McVay is the grandson of former 49ers general manager and New York Giants coach John McVay. In September, the 49ers dedicated their draft room to the eldest McVay in a small ceremony that included a number of the team's alumni.

Silver also believes that the two Green Bay Packers executives that interviewed with the 49ers are the leading candidates for the vacant general manager position. Yesterday, Silver stated the 49ers were impressed with Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst. Both interviewed with the 49ers on Thursday.


Our own Al Sacco says that the Packers looking at Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey looks like a sign that Green Bay is expecting one or both of their executives to leave.

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week. In what was probably some prep-work for the likely-to-be top discussion topic once training camp kicks off next week, the All-Pro player was asked about the upcoming training camp quarterback battle ... which may or may not be an actual battle. Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons. Last year, the focus was around the 49ers possibly replacing their quarterback, who had just helped guide the team to a Super Bowl, with future Hall of Famer Tom
