L.A. Rams running back Todd Gurley described his 2016 season as a “nightmare” on The Rich Eisen Show, per NFL.com.
Gurley said he could not believe the season. He added that it was a learning experience and that he never wanted to feel like that again.
In 2016, Gurley and the Rams both took steps back. The team only won four games a season after finishing 7-9 in 2015.
Gurley went from rushing for 1,106 rushing yards as a rookie to not surpassing 100 yards rushing in any single game. Gurley finished his sophomore year with 885 total rushing yards and a 3.2 yards per carry average.
Football Outsiders ranked Gurley as the 36th running back in value per play. Pro Football Focus graded Gurley as the No. 33 running back in the NFL with a 68.8 accumulative grade from the subscription service.
Not to mention, L.A. finished at the bottom of the league in offensive production. They only averaged 14 points per game, which ranked dead last. They were also No. 32 in yards per game with 262.7 total yards.
Plus, the Rams fired head coach Jeff Fisher with three games left.
Either way, 2016 is over. Gurley and the Rams start a new chapter behind head coach Sean McVay.
