The Gurley Thread To End All Gurley Threads

I have compiled a comprehensive list of all the teams over the last 20 years that selected a RB with a top 10 draft pick and then went on to win a Super Bowl with that RB as their starter.


OK, ready? Here's the list:


1) Baltimore Ravens, Jamal Lewis (7th overall)


Thanks for taking the time to read.




Oh, you expected more? Well, how about all the teams over the last 20 years that took a RB anywhere in the 1st round that went on to win a Super Bowl with that RB as their starter?


1) Baltimore Ravens, Jamal Lewis (7th)

2) Dallas Cowboys, Emmitt Smith (17th)

3) Indianapolis Colts, Joseph Addai (30th)


Whew. Did that ever take some time to compile.




Still not satisfied, huh? Well, feast your eyes on this list of RBs who have won the Super Bowl MVP award over the last decade:


1) n/a


Umm...


Taking into consideration that three WRs have won that MVP award over the same span, along with how often the "WRs are nothing but shiny hood ornaments" platitude is regurgitated around here, what exactly does all this say about the value of RBs?




Finally, and most importantly, why was it necessary to change "Gurley" to "Gurlie" in order to make it rhyme with "Atlantie"? Wouldn't it have made more sense to just say "Gurley to Atlantey"? Yeah, you're welcome.

If Gurley is the next great NFL RB, the Falcons wouldn't regret drafting him. When was the last time the Falcons were good without a RB who was playing good, if not great football?

When was the last time a team needed "the next great NFL RB" to win a Super Bowl? When was the last time a championship team paid a premium for one?

Shiny hood ornament.

Actually...wait. How many superbowl trams drafted their QB in the 7th round? How many Superbowl teams had the combination of Ryan, Jones and Gurley? All that matters in the end is that you have talent. Seattle has talent. Quinn wasn't making gold out of turds. He was making gold shine

Seattle has talent because they were able to pay pennies on the dollar for their All Pro stud RB.

Welcome to the salary cap era.

People said the same thing about the Oline before the Falcons drafted Matt Ryan. NFL teams can't wait a decade to have the perfect O-line before drafting other players.

People wanted Glenn Dorsey over Matt Ryan. They were desperate for Dline help then too.
