Rams’ Sean McVay Says Todd Gurley Is MVP
Of course there is some bias with this comment, and it’s not surprising whatsoever, but Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is casting his vote for NFL MVP for one player, a player who happens to be on his roster.
His choice is Rams running back Todd Gurley.
“I’m obviously going to be biased to Todd, but I think if you just look at it from a production standpoint, he’s as productive as any player,” Sean McVay said, via the L.A. Daily News.
“He’s certainly a special player,” McVay said. “With Todd’s success, that is a reflection of our offensive unit, but I think it’s a great honor for him. I think he certainly has put himself into legitimate (MVP) conversations with that, just based on the production and what he has meant to our team.”
It’s hard to ignore Gurley’s monster numbers. He rankd first in the NFL in rushing TDs with 13 and scrimmage TDs with 17, ranks second in scrimmage yards with 1,817, third in rushing yards with 1,187 and second among running backs in receiving yards with 630.
Those numbers certainly make the case for Gurley as MVP, although New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady seems to have the award sealed up.
