Todd Gurley stands by his comments criticizing Rams
Todd Gurley is standing by his comments criticizing his Los Angeles Rams for their performance in a 42-14 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Gurley made headlines for saying the team looked like a “middle school offense” and that they didn’t play hard. A day later, head coach Jeff Fisher was fired.
On Tuesday, Gurley was asked about his comments and stood by them.
“At the end of the day, if anybody seen the game and seen the way we played, and seen the whole interview, then you know what I was talking about,” Gurley said after practice, via ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez.
Gurley, who has rushed for 740 yards and five touchdowns this season, said he was “just speaking my mind; speaking the truth on how we looked.” He also said his teammates should take his words to heart.
Despite characterizing the offense as being a middle school one, Gurley did not put the blame for the loss on the coaches. He placed it on the players, and he also said he supported Fisher despite the coach’s firing.
The 4-9 Rams are last in the league in points, yards and first downs — all indicative of a poor offense.
