GREEN BAY Josh Allen Jersey , Wis. (AP) — Sunday after his crucial fumble during a kickoff return without talking to reporters. He had plenty to say on Monday.The Green Bay Packers running back and kick returner talked more about his uncertain role and anonymous criticism from a teammate than about costing his team a chance to beat the Rams.Montgomery acknowledged what Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested after the 29-27 loss and again on Monday — that the return unit was told by coaches before the kick to take a touchback if the ball went into the end zone. That would have given quarterback Aaron Rodgers the ball with 2:05 left in the game with one timeout to work with in hopes of taking back the lead.Instead, Montgomery caught the ball 2 yards deep and decided to bring it out, only to fumble the ball away to the Rams, who ran out the clock for the victory.“I made a split-second decision. (I thought), ‘I don’t know if this is going to land on the goal line, so I’m not going to take a knee on the goal line, at the half-yard line and take a chance at putting the game in the refs’ hands,'” Montgomery said Monday.“Unfortunately Jawaan Taylor Jersey , I ended up fumbling the football. I don’t think we’d be having this conversation if I didn’t fumble the football because we know how good our 2-minute offense is,” he added. “But I’ve never been a guy to completely disobey what I’m being told.”McCarthy said Monday that the call to take the touchback was relayed to the return unit in the huddle before the kickoff.“To be at 2:05, that’s exactly what we’re looking for with the ability to stop the clock twice,” McCarthy said. “He made a mistake.”He gave no indication that the Packers are planning to cut Montgomery, who also said he’s unsure of his role on the team with fellow running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams getting more snaps.“I don’t fully understand what my role is right now, what I’m supposed to be doing, how I’m supposed to help this team,” Montgomery said.He acknowledged that he’d been directed to take the touchback Josh Oliver Jersey , saying of special teams coordinator Ron Zook, “He said the same thing he always says: ‘Call the return, if it’s in the end zone, keep it in the end zone.'”The roughly 10-minute Q&A session with Montgomery then segued into a discussion of an NFL.com story in which one anonymous player said Montgomery “threw a fit” when he was taken out of the game on offense on the previous series and that Montgomery “ran it out anyway” because he was upset.Montgomery denied Monday that he threw a “tantrum” and said that he was “very disappointed” that the player criticized him anonymously. Montgomery said that he would like “that one player to come and speak to me.”“It’s very frustrating that the perception in the media now is no one has my back. I’m insubordinate. I’m a cancer, whatever is out there,” Montgomery said, adding that he has gotten threats online.“There’s a lot of stuff that’s not true that’s causing me to have to deal with false accusations about my character, perceptions about my character. I’ve never been one to throw teammates under the bus.“You guys know if you guys ever ask me questions about teammates Deandre Baker Jersey , I always deflect it. I don’t like it,” he added. “So it’s very disappointing especially as a guy who’s jeopardized the length of his career, the amount of money he can make in his career, in the middle of a season being asked to do multiple things all the time. That’s all I’m going to say about that.” NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams are headed to the Super Bowl despite one of the worst games of Todd Gurley’s career.The star running back carried the ball just four times for 10 yards Sunday, caught one pass for 3 yards and let a couple of passes slip through his hands — one of which led to an interception that set up a New Orleans Saints‘ field goal.Gurley’s performance in the NFC championship game became an afterthought when the Rams rallied from an early 13-0 deficit to beat the Saints 26-23 in overtime.Still, the lack of playing time led to speculation that Gurley might be injured.Coach Sean McVay said it was just “the flow of the game.”“What personifies Todd is this is an MVP-caliber player and he just kept fighting, he kept supporting his teammates,” McVay said. “I thought they did a good job as a whole slowing down our run game and we kind of just had to grind some things out today. But Todd is a special player and I couldn’t be more impressed with the way he handled himself.”It was the fewest carries in Gurley’s four-year career. The only time he rushed for fewer yards was his very first game with the Rams http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/oshane-ximines-jersey , when the franchise was still in St. Louis. He carried six times for 9 yards in the 2015 season opener against Pittsburgh.McVay was quick to point out Gurley’s only significant contribution of the game — a 6-yard touchdown run with 23 seconds left in the first half that cut the Saints’ lead to 13-10.“He’s going to have an instrumental role in our game against whoever we play,” the coach said. “He ended up making a big-time play.”Gurley ranked third in the league in rushing this season, finishing with 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns. He had six 100-yard games during the regular season and added a 115-yard performance in last week’s 30-22 victory over Dallas in the divisional round.But the NFL’s highest-paid running back got only five touches in biggest game of the season. C.J. Anderson wound up carrying the load out of the backfield, rushing 16 times for 44 yards.After Greg Zuerlein booted a 57-yard field goal in overtime to win the game, Gurley joined the celebration.“We’re going to the Super Bowl,” he screamed on the field. “Let’s go! Lets’go!”
