GLENDALE, AZ – DECEMBER 03: Running back Todd Gurley /

When it works, why go away from it.

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley flourished under McVay in his first season as head coach, now look for him to double down in 2018.

Put aside the talk about “what could be” with Watkins, and look for LA to embrace what will likely be with Gurley.

The Rams went looking for a solution in 2017, and found it. They also know that their bigger questions come by what they do regarding their numerous questions on defense. They also know that quarterback Jared Goff is still a guy with some questions.

For Los Angeles, repeating as NFC West champions has a tried a true blueprint, and the name at the top of it, at least on offense, belongs to Gurley.

It’ll be his team in 2018. And with a future contract in the offing, he’ll be looking to capitalize on a performance bigger than his Offensive Player of the Year award, and so will the Rams.

Hey, it’s win-win for everyone, and LA knows that.

2918 will be a season where the Rams look to reaffirm who they are.

With Gurley again being the guy, they establish who they are on offense, knowing already who they are on defense.

Like I said at the beginning, the Rams aren’t complicated.
