Gurley: Taught Michel to 'run and catch' at Georgia

Monday, 04 Feb, 2019

He also had 59 catches as he flourished as a runner and receiver for the second straight year in coach Sean McVay's offense. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also can give the ball to James White and Rex Burkhead.

As always, the Super Bowl is the most highly-anticipated sporting event of the year.

Yet Goff, chosen with the No.1 pick in the 2016 draft after a high stakes trade with the Tennessee Titans, has demonstrated a knack of rising to each new challenge in his three-year career.

Gurley had only four carries for 10 yards in the Rams' NFC championship game win over New Orleans. He signed with the team on December 18 and has been living in a Los Angeles hotel since.

Unsurprisingly, the Rams head coach has nothing but the highest of praise for Goff, who has registered 26 wins against nine losses under McVay.

"I think a large part of specifically when you talk about last week's game was the play selection", McVay said Tuesday. With all due respect to the Rams superb defense led by defensive end Aaron Donald, they are going to need the help of the offense.

Anderson, one of the stars of Denver's victory in the 2016 Super Bowl against Carolina, said he had never doubted his talent despite repeatedly being waived.

Kicker Greg Zuerlein is the only key player on the injury report for the Rams. Asked what he knows about the Super Bowl, Gurley stroked his long dreadlocks and said, "When you ask me that a couple of plays popped into my head". "I don't know what to tell you. I highly doubt I'll be this fresh ever again in my career".

Goff credits his upbringing for helping cope with pressure.

"We anticipate him being ready to go", McVay said, adding that Zuerlein will be monitored throughout the week and his workload will be scaled back.

"It was not a talent issue, if that makes sense", Anderson said of his 2018 travels. "I really tried to keep (preparation) the same".

"It's just the way I am". He said he has a "good amount of people coming in" to Atlanta this week, including his grandfather - former San Francisco 49ers general manager John McVay - but his parents are handling all ticket and information flow to the rest of the family while McVay is on lockdown preparing for the New England Patriots. Just try and enjoy it. "It's a good balance; they enjoy themselves, but not at the expense of allowing it to affect our focus and concentration".

Obviously he was warned prior to arriving in Atlanta that his five touches all day against the Saints was going to be a focus of all the hype leading up to Super Bowl Sunday, and it's hard to imagine anyone handling it any better than he has. The two said that they wouldn't speak until after the game is over. Gurley explained how it's just natural for him. "I would say I fit all of those schemes and systems well".
