  • Rams have an insanely good offensive line, and they’re all great run blockers.

    That lowers the prime opportunities for him to break tackles at or near the line of scrimmage.

    He’s benefited a lot from those big running lanes, clearly.

  • I attribute Gurley's success to two things.

    1. All-Pro LT Andrew Whitworth
    2. McVays schemes

    I feel the same way about Gurley as I did about Alexander. He has some world class blockers putting him in the right places. He's a good running back, and his line gives him the opportunity to do great things. He's taking advantage of it.

  • You would need to look critically at what this stat reflects. For example, Christian McCaffrey, 18.1 %, had a field day with Seattle, but he's middle of the field with this stat.
    Says to me these guys run where there is no tackle to be broken, rather than the bulldozer method.

  • If Gurley is a fraud then Eckler, Cook and Lewis are elite? There's more to being a great running back then how many tackles you break.

  • Speed kills. You can't break a tackle if they can't touch you. It also produces big runs which are chunk plays. I liken it to a receiver who is fast and a burner vs a tight coverage catcher.

  • I get accused of pooing on the Rams a lot but this one of the rare times I disagree. Gurley is the MVP of the league IMO. I honestly don't believe the Rams offense would be top 10 without him. He is the focal point of their misdirection scheme and there are maybe 3 running backs in the league capable of doing what he's doing.

    That just gives him more time to build up steam, making it easier for him to break tackles against smaller guys in the secondary...if anything, he should have MORE broken tackles. It's not like he's breaking 50-60-70-yard runs off untouched every game.

    I have to agree with the OP on this one. Overrated.

  • whatever else is happening, defenses apparently aren't getting as many chances at tackling gurley. he's getting sprung into the clear with regularity by his o-line.

  • 3 TDs in week 5 against the Seahawks. With no Todd Gurley it would have been 2-0 instead of 0-2 against the Rams. To be sure, not overrated.

  • I have a question.

    Are not NFL teams, teams?

    So if a TEAM builds a good O-line, as a TEAM should - that makes their skill positions less worthy?

    OR: it’s a TEAM game.

    —-

    Are Hawk fans saying something else?

    It’s NOT a team game?

    Gurley is having a great season. He's an awesome running back. The number of RBs I've seen be able to have monster success without excellent line play/complementary passing game is something I can probably count on one hand. If Gurley wins the MVP it isn't any different than Shaun Alexander getting it to me.

    A belief that hinges on caveats such as 'broken tackle %' and one bad game, is an opinion to concerned with contrarianism to form a cognizant point with respect to reality as it is. The idea that Gurley would be "pedestrian" in Seattle is laughable, he's one of the five best running back prospects of the decade, he was picked in the top 15 of the draft. The OP is obviously being hyperbolic and it's humorous and I can respect that fact. I just felt the need to point out the absurdity in it. :D

    Also, perhaps it is best for you to spend less time worrying about what other intellects may succumb to and focus on presenting a tangible rebuttal. It's impossible for you to know where someone else's conclusion has come from and it presupposes that your position is the correct one. I'm all for debate on the merits of what is put forth so attack my opinion, not my intellect.

  • Gurley certainly is not a Fraud. But, The Paper Champ Rams are very much beatable. Put pressure on Goff and he chokes, period. Now GOFF is certainly a decent QB, but far from clutch.

    Amen! Gurley had some HUGE holes to run through, and a high scoring offense that gets up on opponents and tries to run the clock out.

    PFF apparently doesn't either as they agree with me.



    "With high-profile running backs like Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott owning the box score in the NFC, Seattle Seahawks’ Chris Carson has unjustly missed the spotlight in 2018. However, following his mightily impressive 2018 campaign, it’s Carson – not the aforementioned backs – who gets our Pro Bowl vote." -PFF
