Rams RB Todd Gurley’s only goal is to win the Super Bowl regardless of role
Nobody saw it in New Orleans, where Gurley made almost no impact on the Rams’ 26-23 overtime victory. The highest-paid running back in NFL history touched the ball only five times, albeit scoring a TD on one of those touches, rushing four times and failing to catch two of the three passes intended for him.
“You live for moments like that. But like I said, you live, you learn. I don’t give a damn what I do (in the game), honestly. I just want to win, so I don’t really care. You always want to do good, but you just want to win.
Gurley was one of the league’s top rushers in the regular season, carrying the football 256 times for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also caught 59 passes for 580 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. He was one of the most dynamic players in the entire league. His ability to break loose in seemingly any possession.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff expects a much better showing from Gurley in the big game. Goff told Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:
“I expect him to have a big game. He’s going to go out there and do everything he normally does. For whatever — last week wasn’t his and it happens. It’s not the end of the world. I think he knows that and approaches it like a pro. He’s a great teammate and a great guy, a guy that doesn’t let that type of stuff affect him. He’s going to come into work and be the same guy he always is and work hard.”
The Rams went 13-3 on the regular season and finished first in the NFC West Division.
