Todd Gurley: We looked like a middle school offense

The Rams got ripped apart by the Falcons in a 42-14 loss on Sunday that dropped Los Angeles to 4-9 on the season and continued a disappointing season for running back Todd Gurley.

Gurley ran 16 times for 61 yards, leaving him with 679 yards and 3.2 yards per carry for the season. It also leaves him feeling pretty glum about the state of the offense for the Rams late in his second season with the team.

Gurley said the Rams looked like a “middle school offense” and that he had “nothing good to say” about the unit. Gurley added that he feels like some of his teammates may not be working as hard as possible.

“I don’t. I really don’t,” Gurley said, via Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times. “Just going through the motions, I feel like everyone is just playing to get through.”

Things have gotten ugly after a 3-1 start for the Rams and they’ve now been blown out three weeks in a row. Throw in Gurley’s questions about whether players are working hard and, extension or not, it’s not a good time to be Rams coach Jeff Fisher.

    Throwing your co-workers under the bus through the media is no way to be a leader.

  2. “Throwing your co-workers under the bus through the media is no way to be a leader.”

    He’s calling out his teammates lack of focus and determination.

    Someone has to say it. God knows the Rams coaches won’t do it.

  3. He’s not throwing anybody under the bus…he’s calling out his team for the piss poor showing they put on the field. This team is regressing every week and needs a reset at the top

    When did telling the truth somehow become the same thing as throwing your teammates under the bus? Anyone that’s watched the Rams the past few weeks would have no issue with what Gurley said.

    Gurley, ” We looked like a middle school offense. ”

    Fisher, ” We showed vast improvement over last week’s elementary school offense.”

    St Louis fans, ROTFLMAO

    Los Angeles fans, KMN

  6. No kidding about the lack of effort. Hell this team quit weeks ago. They barely took the field against the Pats and then this happens. No wonder so many of us old school Rams fans said hell with it and the team!

  7. With an overwhelming supply of adolescent hormones coursing through their veins, there is no way a middle school team plays with less fire than the Rams.

  8. Demoff and Snead are nowhere to be found. Fisher taking all the heat. Demoff hired both. Demoff also hired the coach before Fisher. Snead has been the GM long enough to take credit for the roster if he is actually getting the players and not Fisher. Want to change the culture of the franchise ? ( which is what needs to happen ) blow up this mess , get rid of everyone and start over. Hello Stan , are you watching ? The NFL paved your way to LA. Made up the rules to make it look like everything was on the up and up and this is what you bring ? The three stooges are getting paid as a reward for their help in getting Stan to LA. That’s the only reason they are there.

  9. Doesn’t matter what city you are in. When you’re bad , you’re bad. No excuses , no explaining you are missing your 2nd team running back and hardly used tight end will make it better. The Rams are thanking god that Cleveland and San Fran are in the NFL. Yesterday the Rams were the worst team in the NFL.

  10. Sometimes the truth hurts. Long live the truth, for the truth will set you free. And given that, Fisher has been let go of his job. Jim Harbaugh is staying at Michigan, btw.
