Los Angeles has long been ruled by the transcendent brands of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Dodgers. Of course Robert Woods Jersey , those two still reign supreme throughout the region, but the NFL is the NFL, and the Rams seem to be carving out a widening footprint in the city’s sports landscape. According to FOX LA’s Liz Habib, the Rams were able to edge out the Dodgers NLDS opener in the ratings war on Thursday night. The Rams surely felt a bump of support during their Super Bowl run last season and should continue to grow in popularity as a new generation grows up with a local team. Nobody is saying that they sit shoulder to shoulder with the Dodgers and Lakers yet, but they seem to be strong candidate for third already Andrew Whitworth Jersey , and appear to have surpassed the followings of other popular Southern California NFL teams, like the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders. When the Rams beat the Saints at the Coliseum in Week 2, it was a great sign of the team’s growth that Rams fans appeared to occupy about 85% of the seats against a popular brand like the Saints. Sustained success and a new stadium should only help the Rams continue their local growth. Rams coach Sean McVay says they’re not keeping running back Todd Gurley on a pitch count.Which means Ezekiel Elliott‘s new deal aside, Gurley is still the highest-paid part-time running back in the league.Via Lindsey Thiry of ESPN, McVay disputed the notion that they were managing Gurley’s workload because of knee problems.“We’re not doing anything like that Cory Littleton Jersey ,” McVay said. “It’s more along the lines of each week presents a different approach. It’s kind of the feel the flow of the game.”Gurley had 14 carries for 43 yards in Sunday’s win over the Browns, and through three games, he has 44 carries for 203 yards, and just four catches for eight yards.That would put him on pace for 1,125 yards from scrimmage this year Dakota Allen Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , after he had 1,831 last year and 2,093 in 2017 (when McVay arrived and modernized their offense). Gurley has one touchdown after leading the league with 21 last year, as he’s sharing the load more with Malcolm Brown.“I have to do better about being able to give him a chance to really get more into a rhythm than what I’ve enabled him to do in these first three games,” McVay said of Gurley. “. . .I think it’s worked out good in terms of the balance. But like I said Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , I think there is some things you’d like to do a lot better job of giving Todd an opportunity to really get going.”If they don’t, it means one of two things seems likely to be true: He’s either still bothered by his much-discussed and much-denied knee problem, or the Rams made a mistake giving him a four-year, $57.5 million extension.
