RB Lamar Gordon - Detroit Lions
|6-1, 214||Born: 1-7-1980||College: North Dakota State||Drafted: Round 3, pick|
2006 Week 16 vs CHI (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon is on the outside looking in. His only statistical production was a single rush for two yards.
2005 Week 2 vs SF (12 / 40 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Gordon saw his fist significant action as an Eagle, as he carried the ball 12 times for 40 yards. Although the bulk of Gordon's carries came late in the game with Westbrook on the sideline, Gordon was used as a change of pace back occasionally throughout the game. His first carry came with 4 minutes remaining in the first quarter, a play on which he picked up 11 yards. His first touchdown as an Eagle came on a six yard run between the tackles.
2005 Week 3 vs OAK (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Gordon came in to give Westbrook a rest and was productive when his number was called. He caught all three balls that came his way, gaining 19 yards on short throws in each of the last three quarters. Gordon also added one carry for a one yard loss in the second quarter.
2005 Week 4 vs KC (4 / 14 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)
Gordon was in the game in the first half primarily to protect McNabb in passing situations. His first carry of the game did not come until the third quarter, and he did not play a significant role in the offense until the fourth quarter, when Philadelphia was trying to run time off the clock. He did have two red zone carries, including a run up the middle from the one yard line that was stuffed.
2005 Week 5 vs DAL (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon carried once for five yards in the first quarter, and was also targeted twice in the second quarter. QB McNabb threw towards Gordon in the end zone but the ball was deflected away by the defense. He also dropped a short pass in the left flat.
2005 Week 7 vs SD (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 6 / 0 rec)
Lamar Gordon was not much of a factor in the game. He slipped on one screen pass which might have gone for a decent gain. He was targeted on one throw near the goal line, but never had a chance to get into the end zone before San Diego defenders converged on him.
2005 Week 8 vs DEN (2 / 16 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Gordon carried the ball two times in the second half, both times gaining eight yards. He also added one catch for 13 yards in the third on a third down and 31 to go for the Eagles. Gordon's second carry was the final play of the game.
2005 Week 9 vs WAS (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon was used to spell Westbrook during the game, but was not a major factor. He dropped a short pass on a crossing route that would have resulted in a large gain on a critical Eagles' drive in the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 10 vs DAL (13 / 57 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon had by far his best game yet as an Eagle. He was used as change of pace back, spelling Westbrook often throughout the game. He ran with speed and power, both inside and outside of the tackles. Gordon was given several red zone opportunities, but did not find the end zone. Gordon slipped and fumbled the football on his fourth carry of the game, but the Eagles recovered. He was not used at all in the passing game.
2005 Week 11 vs NYG (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon was used sparingly, carrying the ball just four times for four total yards.
2005 Week 12 vs GB (3 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon fumbled the ball on his first touch of the day, a costly turnover as the Eagles were driving at the Green Bay nine. He had just two more carries in the game.
2005 Week 14 vs NYG (6 / 17 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gordon started the game for Philadelphia in the backfield, but was the least used of Philadelphia's three running backs. He finished with 17 yards on six carries, with most of his runs going in between the tackles.
2005 Week 15 vs STL (4 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Gordon was the least productive of three backs in the Eagles' running back by committee approach. He tallied only seven yards on four carries and added one catch for five yards. His third quarter fumble was one of four Eagles' turnovers that kept the game close.
