  • Great season, Rams!

    It’s going to take a while to get the bad taste out of my mouth from the disappointing showing in this game, but it doesn’t take away the fact that this was an incredible season with ups and downs, and the team gave us more excitement than we’ve had in nearly two decades. Congratulations to the Rams for making it this far and giving us the hope for a championship! Use this to come back even more determined next year!

    cant be disappointed by the defense. if a couple of offensive plays had gone differently, it would have been a different game.

    i proud of our team and our effort. i just wonder what the real story is on Gurley.

      Maybe we can finally get the true scoop on what happened.

        Great season. The Rams will be back to finish the job soon enough under Sean McVay.

          A thrilling ride this season, but oh how I hate second place. It's the absolute worst IMO. This is another one that will take time to get over.

            You got it Nick.

            It really was a great season and next year should be just as promising all the way into the playoffs. I think both our offense and defense will return more confident and sincerely proud as well, including the coaches.

              Going in I had no expectations of winning or losing. I felt this would be close and could go either way. Thought it would come down to which team made the plays towards the end. Maybe even an officials call or no call. I will say had the Rams not been playing in this game I would have quit watching. Boring game. Congratulations to our Rams and the pats.

                Was a great ride and losing sucks, but hopefully McVay can grow from this and expand his offense so it doesn't rely on Gurley and the play action as much.

                  I have a lot more hope than I did when we lost to them in 36. I think we are on the upswing.

                    I hope Gurley is injured because if he's truly 100% healthy there's a bigger problem IMO.

                      Agreed. First though, we need to solve that C R I T I C A L 'Gurley Mystery'.


                      Todd Gurley says he is healthy after mysterious Super Bowl outing

                      Washington Post

                      One of the Rams' top paid players was conspicuously missing from his team’s game plan in Super Bowl LIII. Running back Todd Gurley II carried just 10 times for 35 yards and lost a yard on his only reception.

                      Gurley’s absence from the game plan was especially noticeable in the first half, when he was on the field for just six snaps, and rushed three times for 10 yards. Los Angeles opened the third quarter with three Gurley runs on its first four plays, but soon turned back to the passing game and backup C.J. Anderson, who had only been signed in December. Anderson finished with 22 yards on seven carries, and two catches for 12 yards, equaling Gurley’s total yardage.

                      Gurley missed Los Angeles’s last two games of the regular season with knee inflammation, but Coach Sean McVay said during the week that Gurley was “feeling good” and expected to “play a big role” in the Rams' game plan.

                      Gurley said after the game that his knee was fine. Asked if he was healthy, Gurley answered in the affirmative.

                      “Yeah,” he said. “Yeah. Yes sir.”

                      CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said on the game’s broadcast that the Rams had “nothing to report” about Gurley’s status. With the nature of his injury, she said, “He could just wake up in the morning and it just doesn’t feel good.” But later in the broadcast she indicated that health was not believed to be a factor.

                      The Rams were 10-0 this season when Gurley, who was considered an MVP candidate for most of the season, rushed 15 times or more. He ran for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns in 14 regular-season games.

                      But fans watching the game speculated on Twitter about what could be holding Gurley out of the game. Others poked fun at the Rams' apparent decision to split the workload with the less dynamic Anderson.

                        Totally agree. And I'm tired of the "Gurley is healthy proclamations" because they sound ridiculous at this point. It's one thing for a team to play coy about an injury you're trying to mask; it's an entirely different story when your star running back- one of the most dynamic players in the league- is a shell of himself in the two biggest games of the season. His ineffectiveness was a big reason we lost. Without a running game, the play action doesn't work. And without that, the offense sputters. Case closed.

                        If in fact Gurley ISN'T injured, then like you said we have a much, much bigger problem on our hands moving forward.

                          Great season for sure! All the way to the Super Bowl.

                          Sorry, Nick, that this shifted to a 'Todd Gurley' theme but it seems unavoidable. He is, after all, one of the main reason we had a Great Season.

                          There certainly won't not be another 'Great Season' in 2019 without a dedicated, full-time TG as part of the Rams offense. It certainly would not seem feasible to see - or fathom - that TG is frustrated and "wants to be traded" either; it just does not fit Gurley's apparent character as a person or as a pro. [Flashback to Dickerson, 1987]

                          Coach McVay will sooner than later have to come up with a clearer, more credible answer.

                            Well put Nick, totally agree with your statement.

                            Go Rams!

                              This was not only a historic season, but also an amazingly fun and enjoyable year. It ended it an extremely bitter way but I think the journey to get to where we are has been awesome.


                              However, with that being said, I'm not sure why I feel this way, but I have a feeling that our team is going to look and feel dramatically different going forward. I currently cannot pinpoint if this is a good feeling or a bad one.
