Draft Scout *Todd Gurley News
08/21/17 - RB Todd Gurley averaged 4.8 yards on eight carries Saturday against the Raiders, and while the numbers weren't huge, the impact was significant. By getting Gurley established, it helped second-year quarterback Jared Goff makes plays off play-action. When the Rams running game is effective, it helps set up everything else.
"Yeah, a lot of it," said Rams head coach Sean McVay. "Anytime that we're able to stay balanced. I think it was (running back) Todd (Gurley), I think it was the linemen doing a good job. The tight ends competed well in-line. We had receivers on the perimeter that were contributing. Jared did a nice job of making sure that the runs we were running were versus the looks that we had discussed and wanted to be able to run against. I think it was all 11 (players) and then when you're able to have your starting running back almost average five yards a carry, that means you're out of those bad third downs, it's why you're able to go six-for-eight in the first half on third down.
"So, it all ties together, but it all goes back to being efficient and being efficient where you have your run-pass balance options up and your second downs and third downs, if available. It allows you to present a lot more to the defense and it regulates some of the looks that you're able to see. I thought it was a great job by the offense, staying in those positive situations to be able to do that."
05/22/17 - RB Todd Gurley is looking to put the sophomore slump in 2016 behind him. Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards as a rookie but tailed off to 885 yards last year. "Obviously, just want to be able to not have the season we had last year," Gurley said. "Like I said, I just work hard every day and then just come with the mindset of just trying to get better at one little thing each day." He is hoping a new head coach and offensive system gets him untracked. "Obviously, this is a new system and just the big thing -- even though we coached it a little bit last year -- but just a lot more detail," Gurley said. "'We, not me,' just putting the team first. I felt like we did that in the past. Like I said, this coach, he's harped on attention to detail and being situational masters."
11/21/16 - RB Todd Gurley had a 24-yard scoring run Sunday, his longest of the season. Gurley finished with 20 carries for 76 yards vs. Miami.
11/10/16 - RB Todd Gurley did not practice Wednesday with a thigh injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain.
11/07/16 - RB Todd Gurley produced an eighth straight subpar performance Sunday by managing just 47 yards on 12 carries. It directly followed the 58 yards on 15 carries he produced in a loss against the Giants, and kept with a year-long theme of struggles.
Gurley has inexplicably failed to reach the 100-yard mark even once this year.
Still, it's hard to mount a serious charge when you run the ball just 27 times in the last two games.
"I don't control the play calling. Coach (offensive coordinator Rob) Boras does a great job," Gurley said. "It's a team game, you can't get the ball every time."
That said, you can imagine Gurley is itching to get more touches,
"Like I said, obviously everybody wants the ball in their hands," he said. "But it's a team game; I trust in my guys as much as they trust in me."
