Todd Gurley has a historic start to the season

Rodney Harrison calls Todd Gurley the best running back in the league. The numbers back Rodney up.

According to the NFL, Gurley has become only the third running back in league history to generate more than 575 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in the first four games of a season. The others? Hall of Famers Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith.

Brown did it twice, in 1958 and 1963. Smith accomplished it in 1995.

The group could soon expand from three to four; with only 37 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown tonight against Washington, Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt will join the club, too.

Which could make Hunt the best running back in the league, arguably.

  1. LET ME BE BLUNT: Jim Brown is great

    Todd Gurley is great… but… ONLY one (1) 1000 yard rushing season in his NFL career.

    Good job!!!
    You’re four games into the 2017 NFL season.
    Now… finish it.

  2. So the Rams can change their helmet logo color and pants but they can’t change their St. Louis jersey’s? Why is the NFL fashion police allowing this to go on? It looks terrible.

  3. Who is this guy and where was he last year? Gurley looked like Shaun Alexander after he got paid last year.

    Well you do know that this year is ONLY his 3rd season in the NFL? Just saying but to say a guy that is 4 games into his 3rd season only have one 1,000 yard season is really dumb. He’s on pace for over 1,400 rushing yards, so unless he completely fall off or get injured then it will be 2 1,000+ seasons in 3 years.

    McVay?

  7. It is truly amazing to see this team flourish and realize how much Fisher was holding them back. They are clearly the best team in that division and will probably win 10-12 games this year, They are so fun to watch.

  8. The Rams might still be in St. Louis if they had only fired Fisher a few years earlier.

    Of course, Kroenke might have doing a Major League in order to move to LA.

  9. That kid Hunt is a beast. The last game I saw though, he looked to get his bell rung on one of his runs. Hopefully they will continue to coach him up. Am def liking the RB classes the past 2-3 years. Hope Cook is able to recover from his leg injury to keep doing what he was!

  10. Time for the Rams to announce the PSL pricing for the new stadium. Gotta strike when the iron is hot.

    —-

    ZERO threat from the QB/WR positions meant he was facing eight and nine man fronts. Gurley mentioned it last year when he said, “We looked like a middle school offense out there”.

    Kroenke wasn’t taking no for an answer on LA. They could have been selling out the EJD and he was still doing it.
