You and I continue to see things as opposite as opposite gets lol which is fine. I sit here and read your replies and actually say WHAT!!!!! so many times lol but again it’s fine. I’ve grown lol and just simply say now you are entitled to your opinion.
My only reply here is IMO you are combining being available to your employer with production on the job and in this case on the field. Two separate issues IMO not one. Gurley was in uniform 15 out of 16 games last year. Your analogy of 20 hours would be 8 games not 15. Yes his touches did go down last year but we knew going in there would be some load management and why. But he still averaged 17 touches per game. Anyone wanting more than that should point the finger at the play caller not Gurley. Again Gurley was available for more work. He wasn’t in street clothes on the sidelines. And I’m sorry but close to 1100 combined yards and 14 TD’s is production. It may not be at the level of his salary but..........
Rams didn’t have a gun to their head in regards to the extension. They agreed to it and they both signed it. Why anyone should think the man now should give back money because others feel he should sorry I’ll never agree.
yup , it is fine we see things in a different way . We can just agree to disagree most times , no problem . BUt it is usually because you always take a stance pro-player or pro-team , don't take this wrong but I have yet to see you take a different stance about a player , a coach , a gm , or the team overral . It is always like you are trying to protect them at all costs , like I said don't take it as an insult because it is NOT , it is just the message that your posts send . IT is all good thought , we must have different posters with different views or else this place would be boring .
About gurley , imo , it really doesn't matter how many times he was dressed . All it matters is how many times the doctor said he can carry the load without getting completely fucked and I can't blame the play caller if he is doing the load management that the team doctor told him to do .
Gurley 2017 - 2100 total yards. avg rushing yard per game - 89 yards
gurley 2018 - 1831 total yards . avg rushing yards per game - 87 yards
2019- 1.064 total yards (seems pretty bad when you look at 17-18) . avg rushing yards per game - 57 yards ( much , much worse )
So yeah maybe not exactly 50 % less , but REALLY MUCH LESS production . I know the o line was bad , and that is one of the REASONS why he average 3.8 ypc when compared to 4.7 and 4.9 in 17 and 18 . But I am talking about the fact that mcvay HAS to load manage him , if mcvay gives him 25-30 touches like he used to do sometimes , like gurley was PAID to do , he knows gurley's knee won't hold it . taking a pay cut would be only FAIR .
Btw , look at this stats for his receiving .
2017- 87 targets . 64 receptions . 788 yards . catching % at 73.6 % . 53 avg receiving yards per game
2018 - 81 targets . 59 receptions . 580 yards - catching % at 72.8 % . 41 avg receiving yards per game
2019 - 59 targets . 30 receptions . 200 yards . catching % at 63 %
. 13 avg receiving yards per game .
Team shows me this and I WILL be the one asking for a paycut , lol .
Can you tell me why is he catching 10 % less when the ball goes his way ? is there a reason for that ? he was dropping passes all over the field last season .
oh , and btw , did you know he couldn't get more than 100 yards rushing last season in ANY GAME ? yup . maximum was 98 at week 1. His production is very , very average and will probably stay that way unless he finds a cure for arthritis . So , average production , average money , not top money . It is pretty simple to me as much as you don't agree brother .
