Everyone had their eyes on Melvin Gordon in the first game and he was hesitant in his first work on the field. He never was able to break loose for a long run like we all had hoped, but he still got his feet wet and will be able to go into the next game with more confidence.

Gordon seemed hesitant to hit the hole and it will be something that we all will be watching carefully. He worked with a huge offensive line in college and had some giant holes to run through then. He won’t get that kind of gaps in the NFL, but he still should be able to hit the hole hard. We need him to get us drooling.
