“I hate that I have to say this. But I think I made a comment that was definitely taken out of context,” McVay later said. “I’m very excited. I’m in a good mood because of the confidence I have in this team. But that doesn’t mean it’s a trivial matter for someone like Jared, who has done a great job over the past four years here. hate having to talk about that but respect him and the good things he does. [I needed to clarify]I’m in a good mood, but that doesn’t mean it’s not because we work together or just because Stafford. and i am sure So don’t twist my words when I’m not saying that.”
