Listen: Todd Gurley, Rams, Football discussed on Highly Questionable
"The eighteenth hole coming up. You know realizing that can't play wait forever and the opportunities don't come along all the time. Were you on making the turn. He's he's always been one of these guys because that position can be so lopsided in its personality shows publicly with the things that he says that he takes the long view that he can see things with perspective. He knows he's not bulletproof. He just came off a non playoff season because his body broke down and he's trusted that body for a long time. He's taking care of that body as well. Of course he can see. I'm from here. But he's still a guy who's saying he wants to play in his forties and I pray for that. This is something that I like candles to at the end of my evening The question was about how Oh packers fans should feel about his comments and I actually think they should feel good about them because that was a man who's not delusional who's clearly aware of his physical limitations. This has not been his best season. It also is a man I think. It was aware of the urgency of the situation. Aaron Rodgers is a quarterback who is definitely lost his best best seasons to mediocre teams. You didn't deserve defenses. Who broke in the playoffs right now? He's looking at this packers roster and he thinks they're good enough and he thinks he'd like to make a run on added this season. If I'm a packers fan I hear that and I'm happy. Yeah to me the question is about. Hey these opportunities are not gonna come along so often. How much do you value? How how much do you take for what this is how much you value it? But let's just talk about this terrible analogy. Shall we okay when you're on a golf course. Dan You can't see the the eighteenth hole unless you're on the seventeenth hole so right. He was pressed. Hey what are your well maybe making the turn. You can't see the eighteenth hole from the ninth or tenth hole so if you've got half of your career left then why are we even talking about it right. Why why your thoughts me now? I did like them asking asking exactly which whole he's on important. Follow up question there. What what do you make of? Sean McVeigh's re-embrace Tiger early my untrained. I thought that last year the rams went right in the toilet when Todd Gurley got hurt and they weren't ah using them the same way. Mvp Way that they were before but Meena corrected me back. Then saying no Cooper Cup was more important to. They're often. Now Sean. mcvay is no no no no wait. I'm in a girly. We need to use them more being asked. Why are you using him more? Listen to what he says may not be in an idiot You Know No. I think he's felt good and really done a nice job with that so You know really it was you know you look at the Chicago game and then kind of just going from there. You don't WanNa make some of the same mistakes that you ended up making earlier earlier on in the in the season and I think he's done a nice job handling a bigger workload but then also you do have confidence in those other guys if they need to give him a spell. Well it's interesting because this narrative has been evolving right. It's been about a year since that Philly game where he had he hadn't had any real production since then any consistent production. You're wondering is it an injury. Is it just a football. The situation is he not producing. And you can look at it in two ways you can look at it as the rams sort of getting full of themselves and saying hey we are not all todd Gurley watch what else we can do and over the course for some time you realize. Oh Jared Goff. Isn't special you definitely need todd. Gurley there or it could be just his production. Wasn't there and if you look at the averages per rush over the course of this year they haven't been there even this past game where they rushed him twenty five times he did have a long cat for twenty yards but it was four yards per rush basically so mean or what. It looks. I'd like to me is. He's telling you look. We Need Todd Gurley in a must win game against Seattle. He is our number one reason why we're going to win and so we're going to write him. We'll see what happens after that. So last season my quibble with the argument that Todd Gurley was responsible for everything. Rams related was at C.. J. Anderson came. I'm in off the street and produce just as well in a game this season I think his lack of usage has been complicated. There's a lot of conspiracy theories out there. All he must be injured or this is slowed management. But I actually believe John mcvay when he says. This is more about football reasons. There's a statistic. I like called expected points added per play right now. If poppy was here he'd be pantomine Santa Mining Falling Asleep. But he's not so I'm going to late. It looks at down distance. It field position in that metric the rams currently ranked twenty first. They were fifth last season. In enro- I'll come on in any case There's no conspiracy theory. There are football reasons but I think they're leaning more because they see Jared Goff needs him disrespect. I'm done I'm done. I'm done coming up next on my cell Stevie show short-circuits. This is incredible. It."
