Default Please Tell me about Toby Gerhart

From a Vikings fan:

"Slow. Can't block. Can't catch. But hey, my granpda loves him! **** Toby Gerhart."

I'm watching the Vikings vs Seahawks game and I think I missed most of Gerhart's play. He did have an outside run that went for about 3 yards though.

RMartin, tell me what you've seen!

I seriously had a dream last night that he busted off like a 80-yard run for a TD, and I was yelling at the TV because he did so good and our guy is out for the year.

Funny that I come here this morning and read your post. It was one of those "seems very real" dreams, and I'm glad it was just a dream.

That's kind of funny. I saw one of their preseason games and he just looks out of place. He is not an NFL running back.

Is Joe Webb the QB that was playing in the game against the 49ers? If so, I liked what I saw out of that guy too.

I wanted Jonathan Dwyer for our first 6th...

Really could have used him given our RB woes.

I picked up Gerhardt in like the 16th or 17th round in my fantasy draft.

Agreed. I was ok taking Dwyer in round 3. And we didnt want him in roundn 6? We would rather have Shelley Smith who could have been had with our 2nd 6th round pick when we took Holliday.

I really wanted Anthony Dixon though.

Default Re: Please Tell me about Toby Gerhart

I have not been able to see any Vikings' games yet. I am a little surprised to hear this though, it is something that I will keep an eye on. Just looking at box scores, he is doing better than AP, 3.3 yards per carry to 3.1. He is a rookie, I would say just give him time.

Default Re: Please Tell me about Toby Gerhart

The good thing about TG playing for Vikings is he will play with AP who can mentor him and coach can bring him along slowly. The bad thing is he will be compared to AP. I agree with 65, give him some time.

I seriously think the only people that wanted Toby were people that still thought an Earl Campbell type was relevant in the modern NFL.

Hey, I wanted Joe McKnight

Let me guess. Joe McKnight, Stafon Johnson, and trade the rest of our draft for LenDale White. Got it.

Default Re: Please Tell me about Toby Gerhart

The two runs I've seen him on he just looked slow compared to NFL defenses. Not un-decisive, just about a step too slow to really make anything work. He honestly looks like a fullback (lol white guy lol) trying to turn the corner. I may have missed any awesome runs he's had since I've seen 2 whole carries, but that's just my thoughts from the very brief action I've seen.

If he can't block he's going to have a hard time finding carries.
