Seahawks DE not very impressed with former Georgia RB Todd Gurley
One Pro Bowler wasn’t too impressed with another one after the two went head-to-head on Sunday.
Former Georgia star RB Todd Gurley, who was named to the Pro Bowl earlier this week, ran for 85 yards on 19 carries and scored a 2-yard touchdown with 10:34 remaining to help the St. Louis Rams earn a 23-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
Gurley has had a tremendous rookie season in St. Louis, ranking 3rd in the NFL in rushing with 1,108 yards to go with 10 rushing TDs. His 12 runs of 20-plus yards is 2nd only to Doug Martin’s 13. All of that comes despite Gurley missing the first two games of the season.
However, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, a seven-year NFL veteran out of Texas A&M, wasn’t too impressed.
“He’s average to me, personally,” said Bennett, who was also named a Pro Bowler. “I’ve seen better running backs. He’s no Marshawn Lynch.”
The Rams’ win snapped the Seahawks’ five-game winning streak while also giving St. Louis its first win in Seattle since 2004.
Gurley is one of five Bulldogs to make the Pro Bowl this season, tied with LSU for the most by any SEC team.
