To be fair VB doesn't have A take. He routinely points to other possibilities.

Like this from yesterday's Athletic article. He mentions that the limited pitch count may be due to "concern that his surgically repaired knee will not hold up with more use."

That's not a "saving him" thing, it's a physical thing. Can the knee handle more use? In the tweet already quoted a couple of times here, he says "Sean would love to feed it to him. Often. The harsh reality of football/injury has sabotaged that."

So VB seems to be saying it's either to save him for later OR it's physical. To me yesterday firmly showed it's not the former, since now IS later. So if it's #1 the Rams are idiots. If it's #2 they have no choice in how they handle things.

Gurley's issue is one thing. The other issues are another thing. If the Rams are that bad without a healthy, 100 percent Gurley, then I would say they were not that good to begin with. One player does not make the whole team.

Their issues go far beyond Gurley. If they were good enough, the could IR or sit Gurley a few games and go with Brown and Henderson. But they aren't good enough to win with that. Its probably just that simple. They are not a good team. Probably still not good enough to win with a 100 percent Gurley.

I’ve seen fans questioning Todd’s commitment after his comments last night about his usage. To those of you who are, replace your laziness with nuance.

Two things make it crystal clear that the #Rams and Todd Gurley are working through/managing an issue with his knee: His usage rate/patterns and the fact he hasn’t protested about those rates/patterns.

I have no idea what’s going on.
He looked good. I still think there’s a gear missing and I’m fascinated to see his usage the rest of the way.
But it was nice to see him so involved.

In a way, one has to hope that Gurley truly was limited the first 9 games and that he is now coming out of it. If he has been capable of this all year and just not being used? That's no bueno.

I think it is pretty simple. The Rams are concerned about over using TG in the short and longer term. Now that the season is in the balance now is the time to use him. Also I think the Rams have realized you cant be efficient splitting TG, he needs to get about 75% of the touches to be affective. I thought Collinworth nailed it when he said the screen game has been the missing link this year in the Rams offense. It was great to see TG getting out in space on it last night. Funny how the pass opened up in the second half after the bears had to commit more to the running game. IMO last night was the first time all season the Rams offense looked like the first half of last year. TG is the straw....

I think the Rams are playing rope-a-dope with Gurley
I stand by that post from last week
