Listen: Rams, Todd Gurley, Lindsey discussed on Super Pregame Show
"Welcome back to the super pre-game show on ESPN radio during no go alongside the Green Bay Packers SuperBowl champion, Martin tau. Sure. As we get closer to kick off a few Pro Bowl, fifty three in Atlanta. Lindsey theory covers the Rams for ESPN and she joins us right now on the shell Pennzoil performance line. The patriots have done this so many times I assume that they are more than comfortable in the environment. What are you seeing from the Los Angeles Rams who have not been here as a unit? Yeah. The the Rams all week. They were embracing the experience of by the end of the week a little bit of wide is they continue to be with the media every day for forty five minutes or so so many reporter destiny so many of the same question, but really those guys education stopped business Super Bowl. This is fun. And now that they've got through their game and everything. You know, they're they're they settled in and Sean McVay done a great job at kind of keeping these guys. They're mcalinden saints game in a game out. I know they were very calm and confident going into the NFC championship game. They kind of do to some of that same confidence that they've called it as they get ready here for the Super Bowl Lindsey, the last two Saturday mornings I've done my radio show with Mel kiper. And I've heard him say both times. Oh, the Rams should be all relaxed because they probably shouldn't even be there. If it weren't for the, you know, the non call against New Orleans. They must be totally relaxed and nothing to lose which would make them more dangerous. Do you sense? Any of that whatsoever? Absolutely not and and the steam obviously, very controversial at the end of the NFC championship game. But you know, what? The saints have won the game in overtime. Also, they had a faith mess. L Degan Jared Goff earlier. Say mentally these guys really haven't put too much credence into that one. Call doing several things that do and do not found your way, and they're in the Super Bowl, they're worried about and that is not a reason for them to, you know, think oh we're lucky to be here. And let's just play like they came here to win this game. Lindsey with a lot of speculation about the health of Todd Gurley. And with how the game the NFC championship game played out. What's the expectation coming in just from the reps touch standpoint for early tonight? Cajun at Todd is going to have as normal workflow from obviously not last week last week was a huge abnormality but probably towards but he had against the Cowboys yet one hundred fifty yards. I believe with sixteen carries. So I think you can expect them and around the same from girly, Sean McVeigh that he wants to get him going to get him going. Everyone wants to kind of think about C J Anderson is the go-to guy. But you can't forget the Todd Gurley as a huge reason Rams team turned around and if they built this off at around Todd Gurley. So while I think EJ confer we take the load unexpect- for Todd Gurley have a huge role in. And how do you see from a matchup standpoint tonight with Ataman grant? How do you see Toledo going with one of them are what do you think that is gonna look like? Yeah. I think it's mostly going to be with gronk linebacker, Mark, Barron and strong safety. John John's I talked to both those guys week. I obviously I'm talking to Wade Phillips dot how you slow down. Gronk the look for those guys wasted as much as they can they're gonna find a way to double team him. But they have repeated over and over again that gronk is a mismatch for every team. Rams are no different. But he's definitely a guy that is focused on in their game plan. Lindsey theory. ESPN Rams reporter teams are not getting to Tom Brady not of late not in this postseason. He has stayed completely clean. And we know this Rams defensive line is as good as any in the NFL how effective do they think they can be getting to Brady. This is a confident group and John McCain students play his best football spice bar this season over the last two games. So I think that they have really seen that as long as they stop the run. I that's what they said all week long, and they got earned the right to rush if they're gonna deal to run. But after they deal with that, I think this gets Brady seeing Aaron Donald cut through double teams game in and game out, but within dominant showing up now. Attention to bake. It Tom Brady dot down a couple of times. Lindsey theory. ESPN Rams reporter, we appreciate the insight and enjoy Super Bowl fifty three. Thanks, guys. Appreciate it. No doubt so much talk about the girly and the Anderson part of this as we welcome you again back in to."
