Cooper Kupp ‘Counting On Myself To Get There’

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp says the heights of the 2021 season aren’t so far away from him.

The arrival of Matthew Stafford at quarterback propelled the Rams to Super Bowl triumph that year. Cooper Kupp won the triple crown – leading the league with 145 receptions, 1,947 receiving yards and 16 receiving touchdowns.

Since then, the 30 year old has struggled to replicate his best form, largely due to injury. In fact, Kupp’s 2021 season eclipsed both his 2022 and 2023 seasons, statistically.

A string of ankle and hamstring issues have hampered Kupp over the last two seasons. He says he’s learned how to play efficiently in order to last an entire season.

“Efficiency is a big thing for me,” Cooper Kupp said. “The more efficient you can play saves more down the line for you. Don’t do more than you have to, so that you can do more when you need to. That’s kind of the mantra I live by with that.

“I look forward to being able to go out there this year and play some good football.”

In his mind, he’s just as good as he was during that Super Bowl winning season. “I don’t know if I would be still playing if I didn’t think that was still who I was,” Kupp said.

“That is who I believe myself to be. I’m counting on myself to get there for my teammates, that’s the player they’re counting on to be there on Sundays, and I believe the work that I do, how I prepare, all that stuff’s going to be there to be the productive player that I know that I am.”
