This shouldn’t have happened. The Los Angeles Rams weren’t supposed to release Todd Gurley, who was the face of their franchise. Yeah there were some concerns about Gurley and how bad the arthritis in his knee was? But Gurley was the key to all of LA’s success and it doesn’t seem real that the Rams could just throw him away like they did. Especially when you go back and look at the film.
Gurley scored 5 touchdowns in his last 5 games and that’s not production a team can just walk away from. The Chicago Bears just tried to do the same thing with Jordan Howard and their offense was a shell of what it used to be. The same situation is going to play itself out in Southern California. Without their workhorse Los Angeles’ offense will take a huge step backwards. The Sean McVay’s a genius narrative will disappear this upcoming season. And let’s be honest it’s probably Les Snead’s fault. He’s the general manager and the one who’s responsible for every roster move. So that’s where the blame has to fall for a decision like this. But make no mistake about it. This is a poor choice when we’re talking about performance on the field and wins and losses. It doesn’t matter how much cap space is freed up. Cutting Todd Gurley will always be the wrong move in the sport of football.
