Sean McVay: Todd Gurley Was Limited By Opportunities, Not Plan 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Feb 6, 2019 1:33 pm

Sean McVay says the game plan going into Super Bowl LIII was to have running backs Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson share the workload against the New England Patriots.

Gurley ended up with 11 touches for 34 yards, while Anderson had nine touches for another 34 yards in the loss.

\"We just didn\'t get a lot of attempts off,\" McVay said. \"So that really ended up being a big result of what ended up happening where neither Todd nor C.J. got involved.\"

The Los Angeles Rams ran 60 plays, but gained just 260 total yards.

Gurley rushed for 1,251 yards and scored a league-best 21 touchdowns before he was sidelined for the final two games of the regular season because of inflammation in his left knee.

Everyone with two working eyes could see Gurley was not the same player post-injury. LA can say whatever they want, probably just toeing the company line to avoid a fine for obfuscating injuries, but it's not fooling anyway. If Gurley were healthy he would have been a major difference maker, it was a shame he couldn't give it a real go in the Super Bowl.

Riiight! You have one of the best offensive weapons in the NFL, and you force him to split carries with a guy off the street ... but it wasn't due to injury or anything. :lol:
