Oh the misery of Intergalactic Agent who travelled light years to watch the great running backs of the NFL. Once upon a time my body had three beating hearts, now its hollow. Why the sorrow? Because there are no great running backs in the NFL anymore. That era is over in favor of pass happy offenses. This depressing fact dawned on me in week 1 of the NFL after my fantasy draft. Guess who I drafted? Adrian Peterson in the 1st round and Ray Rice in the 2nd round. Oops…
Where is my Barry Sanders? Where is my Walter Payton? Where is my Jim Brown. The NFL tells me it will never happen again. causing the tears of this alien to fill the oceans of Neptune. But then there was light! His name is Todd Gurley.
What can’t Todd Gurley do? He can carry the ball, he can catch it, he can block and he can return kicks. He uses speed and power. He is the best athlete on the field every time he steps on the field at any level. The reason I came to this planet suddenly had life again. Is Todd Gurley the next great running back? Then in November, this cruel planet tore all my dreams away from me. I laid in bed until December.
But Todd Gurley will play in the NFL. This alien will go on! Gurley’s potential at the next level is too much for the NFL to pass up. Some athletes can return from ACL injuries to participate in sports specific drills within five months. In December Gurley declared for the NFL draft. In January he signed an agent. He is ready. Are you NFL?
Todd Gurley is a 232 pound former track star who uses power and cuts to make plays. He is a great fit for a zone blocking scheme like the scheme the Dolphins run. Gurley can make one cut, and overpower the first off balance defender he sees. Get off me, I’m Todd Gurley and you are a lower life form!!!
In six games for Georgia in 2014, Gurley rushed for 911 yards with an impressive 7.4 yards per carry. In three seasons running for the Bulldogs he had over 3200 yards and averaged over 6 yards a carry. He had 6 receiving TDs and two kickoff returns! What is going on here? Is Gurley and Earthling? I say no. But let’s keep it a secret.
If Todd Gurley were an Alien Weapon of Destruction he would be a lethal Ooliopii Boomerang. But Why am I still talking about Gurley. If you missed him at Georgia, don’t worry the Boomerang is going to come back. Turn around so you don’t get hit in the back of the head Earthling!
