Patriots, Bruce, Todd Gurley discussed on The Rich Eisen Show


What do you think about? Yeah. I mean, the response. No that I'm not ready to put any. I mean what the patriots have done is. I don't think we're ever going to see that again. So I'm not ready to put anybody in that category. But you know, fascinating things that the Rams do formations and motions in when you're talking about a team that plays a lot of man to man coverage. The hardest thing to do is. When a guy goes in motion, and you snap the ball when he's behind the quarterback or he's running jet sweep and you're trying to play man to man coverage for that guy to be able to chase that guy to the other side of the field. And so with all the movements that they do how does that count her what the patriots wanted? How does that counter? If they wanna play a lot of man to man coverage. The other thing is. Now Todd Gurley has caught a lot of passes last couple years in this offense. They haven't necessarily used him in a lot of route running, but that's another area where I think the patriots are vulnerable is if they're gonna play a lot of Mandy main coverage covering backs out of the backfield. I mean Alvin Kamara had eleven catches last week. And it just seemed like they could go to him all day long that they wanted to will there be something in this game plan from Sean McVay using Todd Gurley in an adequate using Todd Gurley in the passing game in a different way stretch the field or get some matchups on a high tower or one of those linebackers that we haven't seen before. And so those are some things that I'm looking at because if asinine of how a patriots like play and how they I I can see them attacking this, Sean McVay type offense. But some of the counters that that Sean come up with you minutes left here with Kurt Warner pound the table for Isaac, Bruce whose name we might here Saturday night to join you and Kenton. I mean, all I I've been around a lot of great players. Great receivers, you know, guys like there FitzGerald that. We have first ballad guy, anquan Boldin. Torry Holt greatest route runner up ever seen play this game. You know that that starts it because I've played against in. And with a lot of great ones. But to me, the hardest thing is, you know, as you move further into this thing, the stats of our game have gotten outrageous. But when Bruce retired he was only the second receiver that had reached fifteen thousand yards in his career. I mean only him and Jerry Rice when he retired at that stage. Now, I mean, there's still only I think five guys that have done that. And so I think he's gotten overshadowed by some of these guys that were on individual teams. But what I think we have to remember is how great Isaac was before the greatest show on turf because we put everything together with the greatest show on turf, and what he gave up still being a great receiver, but had Marshall, and we had Tori, and we had we had is we had all these guys. That he had to share the ball with head that guy been on a team where he was the main guy has whole career. I think we're talking about a guy. That's right there with Jerry Rice in terms of yards, and what he accomplished I just think that gets overshadowed a little bit because it was an unselfish team where everybody got touches, but he's still ranks top fifteen in catches still ranks top five in yards. It's time to get that guy in and then you go beyond that. And I mean, I think of hall of fame, and I don't just think of numbers. I don't just think of stats I think of how you carry yourself what you meant to an organization in what you meant to the league. And there's nobody that carry themself better than Isaac. Bruce that represented this league better than him. You couple that with the stats. I think he should be a slam dunk to to be in the hall. Well, we'll find out on honors on Saturday night. And obviously we'll talk about it on game day morning on our pre-game show that starts at nine AM eastern time on clue a lot of. This Xs and os Chattan. I are you aware of the piece that I'm shooting on Saturday to air on Sunday. I am not. Okay. I'm aware..

Coming up next
