Former Georgia football star Sony Michel shines in Super Bowl

A lot went wrong in the 2018 National Championship Game for Georgia in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. One common complaint from that game was the lack of Sony Michel’s involvement in the offense in the closing stages. Despite leading Georgia in rushing, Michel had only one carry for one yard in the final 10 minutes of the game and overtime in the 26-23 loss.

Many have wondered if Gurley was injured heading into the game, but afterwards Gurley said that he was in fact healthy.

“I kind of had a break low-key for the last two months,” Gurley said. “So, it’s cool. We’ll do the physicals and all that stuff tomorrow. I’m fine though.”

Gurley added that he does not expect to have surgery following the season. The former Georgia Bulldog missed the final two games of the regular season to rest for the playoffs.

It’s another unfortunate for ending for Gurley, one that’s not too dissimilar to his Georgia career. The 2014 teams had one of the best offenses in program history, and Gurley was very much a Heisman Trophy contender. But Gurley was of course was suspended for four games during the middle of the season and then tore his ACL in the Auburn game.

Hopefully Gurley gets another chance to carry the Rams to another Super Bowl. As Sunday night showed, the Rams very much need Gurley to be one of the best players in football. But given the turnover and parity of the NFL, there’s a real possibility he might not get another chance to play in a Super Bowl.

Just about everyone outside of New England was hoping to see a better performance from Gurley — and the Rams as a whole. The end of this season will no doubt stick with the former Georgia star for a while.
