And we had many problems last year, but Gerhart was not one of them.
However, was giving up an extra pick, to move up in the draft, for a back up running back, who rarely played, a good move by the front office ?
Toby was a good player and it's no reflection on him. I just think it is bad strategy to waste a pick to move up unless it's for a starter.
The way I saw the Toby pick was that MN was a team focused on a run first offense and putting all their eggs in the AD basket 16 games a year 20+ snaps a game was a tall order and a big risk. Toby was insurance that came mostly as an opportunity cost (draft pick) vs. an actual financial cost. Basically doubling down on a strength to make sure you can count on it being a strength.
Hopefully they replace Toby with a solid RB that can be counted on when needed.
toby was a pros pro .
.he will be missed..love the brutal running game with AP and gerhart..
going to be interesting see who we will add will it be a speed -slasher..or another gerhart style...
Yeah, Gerhart was horrible. Only sat in the shadows without saying a word, did a very good job whenever his number was called, has a very good YPR in his career. Please man, get a clue before you spew..
I was a big Toby fan and hate to see him go. I hope AP doesn't go down this year or we are screwed.
