The Los Angeles Rams had no chances against the New England Patriots and Tom Brady. That’s what Todd Gurley said.
The running back was
limited in Super Bowl LIII, and he carried the football just 10 times for 35
yards in the 13-3 loss. He wasn’t really happy about the loss, but his Q&A
session with The Athletic’s Molly Knight says it all.
Gurley doesn’t even think
about the loss, and he used the opportunity to crack a joke about TB12.
“It’s been five months
since the Super Bowl. How often do you think about it?” Knight asked.
“Are you asking if I get cold chills and then wake up and
start yelling Tom Brady’s name?”
Knight said yes, and Gurley responded, “Nah. I don’t think about the game too much, to be honest. I’ll see stuff on the Internet and be like, dammit, we could have had it. It was one of those moments for me where I just looked at it like a blessing to be able to do something I always wanted to do. To play in the Super Bowl feels like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But also to come up short is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I mean, bad stuff has happened to me in my life before. It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last time.”
When asked if he’d gone back and watched the game, Gurley said, “Not me. I do not. Working out is the only time I torture myself.”
Well, we all know that the Rams had no chance against TB12 and his team.
Gurley will have a lot of nightmares, because Brady won’t retire until 35.
said that for a long time,” TB12 said
when asked if he will retire. “I feel like I’m asked that a lot, and I feel
like I repeat the same answer. But no one believes me.
“I’ve set a goal for myself at 45. Like I’ve said before, it’s
very hard to make it that far. I know how hard it was this year and the
commitment it takes, and hopefully, I’ve learned from some of the things that
happened this year to be better next year. But every year is tough.
“I’m gonna know when the time is right. I’m gonna feel like,
‘OK, I’ve had enough.’ I don’t quite feel like that yet. I feel like I’ve still
made a lot of improvements, and I still feel like, you know, I can continue to
do it at a championship level. And I think that’s where I was at before, and
that’s still where I’m at now.”
