It’s a slow news day. So let’s relive the last winning score of 2013.
Gurley’s great, of course, but what’s really worth a close look is what Kenarious Gates did on the play. If you watch carefully, he creates the lane Gurley chugs through, throwing a block to his right and then turning around and picking off a defensive back to his other side. It’s perfectly timed. (You can see a bird’s-eye view of the play at about the 2:03 mark here.)
Gates is one of those guys who’s not going to surprise me if he turns out to have a decent pro career as an offensive guard. It’s too bad for Gates that the Dawgs never really had a true left tackle, because he really would have shined as a full-time guard in college.
