Cooper Kupp is having one blast of a season with the Los Angeles Rams. This year, he became the first receiver to surpass 100 catches. He also has the most receiving yards and touchdowns in the league.

Throughout his career, Kupp has displayed a quarterback-like ability to read defensive plans and exploit them. And in the most complicated interview response you’ll ever see, he put that expertise on show.

Kupp spoke with NFL Network’s Bridget Condon after the Rams’ 37-7 victory against the Jaguars on Sunday at the SoFi Stadium. On his 29-yard touchdown reception which came in the third quarter, he was asked just what he observed.

“Yeah, they had a little, three-deep fire zone,” Cooper replied confidently. “Brought the nickel off the edge, safety dropped down. They didn’t look like they were doing a replacement fire zone, so I knew with the back away, we were going to get three pushing through that had an opportunity to kind of run there if I could beat my guy, just had to beat the safety to the end zone.”

That reply from Cooper left the Twitteratis baffled. No one, literally no one even some football analysts was unable to understand the technical language uttered by the receiver in one go. This left Twitter cracking jokes in the most hilarious ways possible.
