The NFL loosened its grip on touchdown celebrations coming into the 2017 NFL season. As a result, fans have been treated to some epic celebrations from teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings.
With team celebrations being all the craze this year, many are wondering when the Los Angeles Rams plan to whip out one of their own. However, star running back Todd Gurley thinks the offense scores too much to be constantly celebrating every touchdown, according to Joe Curley of the Ventura County Star
“We get in there so much, we don’t have to do it every time… I don’t have all day to do a whole cha-cha slide, electric slide.”
It goes without saying that there is plenty of truth to Gurley’s comments. The Rams currently boast the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL with nearly 30 points per game. It would undoubtedly get tiresome to try and keep thinking of new ways to celebrate every score.
To say that the offense has improved in the 2017 NFL season would be a vast understatement.Not only has head coach Sean McVay helped turn second-year quarterback Jared Goff into every bit of the franchise quarterback Los Angeles drafted him to be, but the resurgence of Gurley as the NFL’s premier touchdown-scorer speaks volumes to this group’s potential moving forward.
