Listen: Todd Gurley, Cowboys, Anthony Davis discussed on High Noon
"If pride matters dignity matters if the opinions of your colleagues matter and the safety net for the cowboys of course is that their colleagues in the NFC east or whereas you described Mediocre and terrible but the bears also have some must win feeling here too because the cowboys of course are the team. That is six thousand six. They've beaten all the good teams or other. They've done the opposite against the good teams plus the jets and you know are the bears good or bad. This feels like a pretty good test for that. I feel like the bears are not going to the playoffs. So it's kind of a must win in their minds but not really an application that being said this is an interesting strength strength match up when you think about it. This bears defense is not as good as it was last last year but it is a good defense. The cowboys offense is maybe the best offense in the league. At least those two units are going against each other. This should be pretty entertaining when his MSD trubisky against against the cowboys. Defense like they look at Mitch like hey man. If you can't get this done now homey I don't really know and we can expect you to your point about the cowboys. Defense is right on the cowboys. Offense right they are the ones that are normally high scoring league in yardage and all that but when they lose seventeen point three points a game which is about as much as the bears. Give up defensively but Mitch Trubisky trubisky. What is going on with him because the last couple of weeks? He hasn't better against bad question but is it. Is this a thing where bears fans should actually be not all the way out on him. Can they have optimism about that guy. Feel like you just answered your own question. He was good against bad teams. How good they feel about that now to be affair? If you're a bears fan good against bad team is really not much. Like the last seventy five years. You've been happy with that part but this one was supposed to be indeed. He couldn't beat out Mark Williams College. They took them number two. Let's go to Todd Gurley. You may remember from his twenty one total touchdowns season in two thousand eighteen scene but you may have forgotten him since girly has one hundred seventy six touches so far this season last season. That number was three hundred fifteen the last week versus the cardinals rams coach Sean mcvay. They gave me a season. High Nineteen carries a change credited to quote not being an idiot unquote. Pablo McVeigh says. There's no low management plan with girly. Do you believe him. I believe in impart that there is some idiocy as to why they haven't leaned more on Todd Gurley up till the last couple of weeks but the word that they don't like to say and that's the word that I always think about girly is arthritis. This is the thing that has clouded the whole season and the reason I still cling to. It is because it was his own trainer that let's say back in June that there's an arthritic component to that surgically repaired knee confirming athletic report. So if. You're Sean McVeigh. Maybe the strategy the whole time was. Let's make make sure we explain to people why Jared Goff was worth one hundred twenty eight million dollars and let's show that Todd Gurley. We can actually get some of our sixty million dollars turn. There may be some general manager manager less need maybe cared about showing people about Jerry Golf improving to them that he was worth the money. I don't think Sean McVeigh has ever drawn up a game plan and been like but we got to justify this money that we pay to pay a whole bunch of money to todd girls that would that would be another one that you need to justify what confuses me about the rams though. It's less about them using girly for fewer carries this year than years before is that he's not been out there. It's not like they've been pumping the Malcolm Brown. It's not like they used him in the way the C. J. Anderson before there seemed to be a broader shift from mcvay on how he was going to use his running back no matter who they were and so that's why the arthritis part obviously jumps out because there were so scared for people but I don't know just how much that informs warms the way the girl has been used by the way win early has been used this year. He's been pretty good. It's not like he's struggling. He's over four yards a carry as of last week. He was projected at being eleven. Eleven twelve touchdowns for the season is just not the bananas numbers that it was before. So if he's doing okay when you're giving them the ball why not give him the ball well. There are other suspects in the murder. Mystery mystery of the rams offense and I think one big one obviously is also the offensive line. And so. If you're Sean mcvay I do wonder to right there. The outside zone run scheme all of last here too amazing success quietly more running team than throwing team but this year the offensive line is the lab dated and recently have shifted to just using todd. Gurley is more of the straight ahead power. Run other thing though. It wasn't quite last year that they were more of a run team than a pass and there was no question who the centerpiece of the offense was Todd Gurley and when they passed it they pretended like they will give the ball to Todd Gurley and then they threw it. We knew that's what it was but they paid their quarterback like a guy who didn't need that help we turn now to the Lakers. Who Walked all over Utah last night and I kinda mean that literally first they blew out the jazz one to ninety six but I wanted to show you the broad getting away with this travel which he called a brain malfunction and also probably one of the worst career is so bad understand but the biggest post declaration it might have belonged to coach? Frank Vogel. Who Said Davis will win defensive player of the year so Bomani? What do you make of all of these Lakers? Now I mean they look like a team has got Lebron James. Anthony Davis when this team came together and they did not get a wild Leonard and it was time to dunk on the Lakers on the Internet. It was like abroad. And Anthony Davis. Who else is going to be on the the President Anthony Davis then when they had trouble getting a coach it was dunk on the Lakers again? They have no idea what they're doing. All seem to be fair points on the coaching part at the very least yes. They went out and actually got a coach who was pretty good coach. Who had some receipts? This is what is come together. Frank Vogel very very good offensive coach. This team is playing very good defeated. Anthony Davis one of the five players in the NBA. He looks like it. And then you an Lebron James and these other guys that are there. This is a team that is good but also should have been good if the only plan rob Pelinka the GM had this whole time. Was I'M GONNA get. Anthony Davis the pair with Lebron. And everything else. We're going to sort of roll the dice on still a pretty pretty good plan even if it makes me think that maybe rob Pelinka isn't the brightest bulb in."
