Jared Goff, on Todd Gurley: "I might be a little biased, but I think he's the best running back in the league. He's the most complete running back. He can do it out of the backfield, he can do it in the passing game, he can do it in the pass-protection game. Obviously the way he runs is special. He deserves everything coming his way. I think the best thing about him is he could care less about that."
