LA Rams Coach Calls Out Star Running Back

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay didn't hold back after his team's Week one loss to the Buffalo Bills. Frankly, he wasn't happy with his team's performance and specifically called out running back Cam Akers.

McVay met with Sarah Barshop of ESPN and had this to say about what he saw from Akers game against the Bills:

No matter who you're talking about, you want to see guys do the little things the right way, compete with and without the ball. There were some instances where there were some positive things and some things that he can do better, but we want to see just an increased level of urgency and accountability snap in and snap out from him. We've all seen how talented and what a special player this guy's capable of bein. And I want to see him reach his highest potential. And that's really all there is to it. It's not about anything other than when he and Darrell (Henderson) are playing at a high level, I feel really good about those two guys at running back for us.

Akers finished week one with just three carries for zero yards. A far cry from his 4.3 yards per carry from a season ago when Akers was able come back from injury and contribute down the stretch for the Rams. Look for a different story in Week two as Akers, McVay and the Rams are likely to get back on track.
