While prepping to help lead New England’s scout team during the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, backup quarterback Brian Hoyer watched Peyton Manning’s Detail on ESPN+ because the episode centered around Rams quarterback Jared Goff.
After viewing the program, Hoyer realized the offense the Rams were running was the same one he had played in while playing under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan with a young coach named Sean McVay coaching up the tight ends.
Then, to educate himself even further about Goff – who by this point is coached by McVay – the 33-year-old Hoyer watched the Amazon series “All or Nothing” which included a few episodes showing OTAs from McVay’s first few months with the team.
Hoyer realized the language, and therefore much of the offense, was still the same and that he knew its fatal flaw.
