I’ve been holding out judgement/hope...

Today was the proof, for me.

There’s nothing there anymore.

I don't agree. I thought he showed some great bursts when there was some daylight. Just didn't have much daylight today.

I think the Rams are playing rope-a-dope with Gurley

I didn’t see any burst. Nothing close to the burst he used to have.

Hate to say it.

The problem I saw with Gurley is McVay choosing, yet AGAIN, to not give him a full workload. 6.1 ypc and a long of 22 is just fine. A measly 12 carries is the problem.

Didn’t see it that way and am no longer looking for signs.

Didn't see it what way? Gurley was productive on the rare occasions that he got the ball. 6.1 ypc is good and was no reason to take him out of the game.

They have intentionally removed him as the focal point of the offense, which isn't his fault. They don't feed him the ball and the often take him out in the red zone. And they haven't scored a TD in 15+ drives now.

It isn't Gurley.

Didn’t see any explosion. Not Gurley explosion. Sorry, numbers don’t tell the whole story. I’m completely aware of the usage & line issues.

Gurley, when he was the most effective, was a target in the passing game. He mixed his game up and that made him more effective in each phase. Now he gets half the touches that he got when the Ram offense was a force. Bottom line...he is now an overpaid decoy that's not even effective doing that any more.

Well, since there's no way to measure explosion, the numbers were at least solid. By no means suggesting that Gurley is washed up.

Fed up? It wouldn't surprise me at all. I'm sure he isn't thrilled to have been marginalized by bad coaching.
