One thing is certain to me...you will know early if the Cavs have a chance. I see LeBron going right at Green early and often. Playing the mind game and baiting him hard. I personally dont think Green is smart enough to not do something ridiculously dumb if LeBron gets in his head.
That being said, someome else has to step up. Granted...Cleveland has the best player on the court. His Batman and Robin gamecwith Kyrie last night kept them alive. But they need someone else to hit shots. Create. If they get production from someone else, the chances increase of Cleveland making history.
No. I didn't pick Kentucky to win it. And teah...they are my team. No reason to be disrespectful about that. I have family and a close family friend who are alums of UK. So that's the connection. Maybe you should keep your snide remark to yourself if you don't understand a situation.
We do know urban is a fan of a solid posterior.
You got it all wrong...he left his job bagging groceries to run the Browns. I say this as a Browns fan.
Do we even have a GM yet?
I didn't bother this year. For the obvious reason that no team really jumped out at me as being dominant. Im rooting for Buddy. I like the kid...he can fill it up big time. Plus, I hate Duke, Carolina and Kansas. And Villanova always pisses me off. So I'd have to say Oklahoma is my team since mine just got knocked out by Creeper Crean.
I would post a picture of my little guy Lynk here if I knew how. He's a 5 month old red nose pit bull. He's also a little asshole. But so cute.
16 year old me would have been outright insulted by that tactic.
That's an interesting question you pose pertaining to the DH. Never thought about it...but it is very valid. DH's are usually guys who have passed their days of playing every day. Yet they still have the requisite chops to hit consistently enough to be in the lineup daily. It might actually cause resentment that these dudes just show up, hit and get paid pretty well to do it.
I'd say Lee is more comparable to Kam Chancellor. Or as I mentioned above, Deone Bucanon.
Arizona is doing it right now. They have 4 safeties they use on most downs. Moved Deon Bucanon down to a hybrid LB spot. He's a Lee type...has excellent cover skills and is a very sure tackler in the run game.
He and Gurley split reps as freshmen. He hasn't played a full season since. Injury prone as all get out.
While I love Zeke...I don't think it's fair to judge either Crowell or Duke yet. The offense has been a potluck of awful. No passing game for a team that is usually down early. So you can't really use the running game. That's why I am all for trading down and taking a receiver. Get a vertical threat to pair with Gordon. You got a quality Tight End in Barnidge. And Lord knows there is slot guys a plenty on the roster. Take an outside receiver. Roll with McCown. Take a QB mid rounds and groom him. Take the lumps now for the greater good.
There isn't a qb in this draft that will make this team a contender right away. So why not improve the pieces around the qb and let a young guy get comfortable in the system. Because if you take a
QB at #2....there is no grooming period. The fans will demand he plays. And that will spell doom for the future.
Pretty sure the Buckner stuff is related to him coming from a 3-4 defense.
I want this. Badly. I can't stomach another QB bust...and that's what is available. Talk to Baltimore...you can bet they are touching themselves over Bosa. If Dallas really is scoping out Bosa at 4...float that to them. Swap firsts. Take Treadwell. Then the pieces are there to make a run at a QB next year. Don't put the cart before the horse...again.
My boss is a baseball freak. And we talk baseball a lot. He said that Votto and Bautista have similar swings. He got into a lot of technical talk about it.. which I didn't follow because baseball isn't my cup of tea. I enjoy watching...but quit playing young. He also said that the injury issues that have plagued both of them stem from their swings. Like I said...I don't really get into the technical part of the game. But I thought it was interesting.
Can't believe I forgot Piano Man by Billy Joel.
Hard to Say I'm Sorry by Chicago is a song I always jam to if its on. Friends in Low Places by Garth Brooks. Mambo Number 5 by Lou Beta as well. These are just a few of my gotta sing songs. Oh...and any Journey song.
Smith has all the talent to work with. He's recruited like a mad man. Next year will be the time his coaching is put to the test. Outside of Corey Smith, the experience factor is low. So how he prepares this group and how they perform will be what I'm looking to see. He has two guys from his room looking to be drafted highly in April. He has Devin Smith and Philly in the league. If the offense is moving toward a more balanced attack, his guys will need to step up and show out. If they energe, then Coach Smith has shown he is a guy you need to play for.
What's scarier than the measurables? His ceiling. Kid has really just begun to scratch the surface of his potential. Put him in the right system with a position coach who can maximize that potential...damn.
He would probably call Tuf "two dollar steak."
Just a question pertaining to that list of rare air bench maxes. Is that all members? Or are some of them people who may have been in town for the Arnold Classic?
Herman coach tsun? He's not one of them. Plus...he's a winner. Winners don't go to Ann Arbor. My opinion is there are two jobs Herman is open to. One is Texas...the other is here. Texas will come open long before this one does.
Curtis Grant came in too big for the new system. Had trouble with reads and calls. And almost quit football. Thankfully he didnt...his leadership and play were a big part of last year's run. And his mentorship of Kwon was crucial to his development. Good call Hove.
My favorite quote along those lines is this..."don't get in a mud fight with a pig. You'll both get dirty, but the pig will like it."
I'd hate it too. I'd love to see Cleveland find a way to get him. But with the holes on offense, it's not feasible.
