Rams' Gurley: 'Forget fantasy and forget Vegas'

With the Rams holding on to a two-point lead in the final minute of Sunday's game against the Packers, Todd Gurley raced toward what looked to be an easy TD.

"Man, forget fantasy and forget Vegas", Gurley said after the game, per ESPN. Before the MVP could get the ball, Montgomery took the ball out of the end zone on the kickoff and fumbled, essentially giving the Rams the win. Prior to kickoff, the Rams were favored by 7.5 points and the over/under point total was set at around 57.5. "So I'm not going to take a knee on the goal line, at the half-yard line and take a chance at putting the game in the refs' hands". You know what that was? Unfortunately I ended up fumbling the football and I don't think we would be having this conversation if I didn't fumble the football because we know how good our two-minute offense is, but I've never been a guy that completely disobeys what I'm being told.

It was a long time ago, sure.

Despite the result, there were a few positives to take away from the game, such as the play of some of the young players on the roster. You don't want to have the timeout distribution there at the end, to be at 2:05, I mean, that's exactly what we're looking for. Several players and coaches told Silver that Montgomery threw a "tantrum" after that, and at least one believed it played a role in his decision to take the kick return out of the end zone. "I'm insubordinate. I'm a cancer, whatever is out there", Montgomery said. As far as the drama and non-sense about it, I have nothing to say.

Offensively, Green Bay also hit its share of big plays, with Davante Adams hauling in a pair of 40-plus-yard passes, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling catching a go-ahead 40-yard TD in the fourth quarter, and Aaron Jones running 33 yards for a score on a picture-perfect draw play. Again, he's a smart player - a lot smarter, I think, than he wants people to think.

"You trust your players on tough decisions, close decisions", McCarthy said.

"When we talk about ebb and flow, it goes up and down and you have to embrace it", he said.

Gurley made it clear that he doesn't give a damn about any of that, though.
