Gurley sticks with the Packers

There are lots of reasons why I love being a Packer fan right now. There are the obvious reasons of coarse, the championships, Super Bowls, perfect season so far, etc. etc. But there is a different little thrill that so many of us get after we signed on to the TT & MM way of thinking. It's that rush you get when you see one of the young players grow into a contributor for the team. As such we revel in seeing D.J. Smith, Sam Shields, and T.J. Lang come out of no where and show they are ready for playing time. It's also why some people almost irrationally push Vic So'oto.

One of those guys who seems to have that sort of following around Packer circles is Tori Gurley. He's a guy who is promising, but is also playing in a position group that is loaded for the Packers. In the preseason the debate that raged was how to keep a promising talent like Gurley versus keeping something of a balanced roster. Most who feared him on the practice squad were afraid of another team snatching him away. Well, that fear was pretty rational because another team made an offer to Gurley and he turned it down. You know what the funny part is though? That other team was the Vikings.

Yup, Gurley would rather be a Packer on the PS than a Viking. So the moral of the story is that the Vikings aren't done picking over our roster and the Tori Gurley is smart enough to know that his future is brighter here than it is on the other side of the Mississippi.
