    Come on bro, he has to have better stats in every category? Almost no one does that, ever.

    Anything is possible. Like to bet CPs?

    The thing that jumped out to me was after a pro bowl season (where he only played 42% of the snaps) Freeman actually played as many snaps as Lindsay. As a lone setback...what Shurmur likes:

    PL 143 times 4.3 ypc, 25 rec
    RF 86 times 4.2 ypc, 34 rec (used much more in passing game)

    I don't know how the RB position all shakes out, but I would not toss Freeman out of the picture just yet. Running from the formation Shurmur prefers (Barkley 196 carries of 217 came from lone setback) Freeman has perform on par or better than Lindsay.

    RB add value running, receiving, and blocking. Lindsay not great at 2 of the 3 so I see the need (a reason PL only saw 50% of the snaps and Freeman saw the same number > blocker receiver).
    That's what I thought too. But the ESPN stats page has rushing: Lindsey at 224 for 1011, Freeman at 132 for 496 and receiving: Lindsey at 35 of 48 for 196, Freeman 43 of 50 for 256. So they're saying that Lindsey got substantially more chances to run with the ball and put up better yardage, but they both got similar chances at receptions (PL 48 and RF 50) and Freeman caught a few more passes for a little more yardage. I think I was just agonizing every time Freeman went in there because I expected the run game to stall and I exaggerated how often they went to him. And I think PL's dropped passes just really stood out. Freeman only caught 8 more passes than Lindsey over the course of the entire season.

    If he can beat his best season I’ll gladly pay that bet.

    Quote of the Day:

    "To me I'm going to take that (criticism) and I'm going to use it as fuel because I know what type of player I am.I want to show that and I'm going to show that. I'm so excited. I'm better than just average."

    (Melvin Gordon on beginning the 2nd chapter of his NFL life after 5 seasons with the Chargers)

    I hope you're correct that "he's going to explode."

    Charger games especially! Both will be home games, his first of his career in a Denver / Charger match up
