I was at the N Illinois game and I noticed that he was open on a lot of the routes he ran. He will be needed in a multitude of ways but I wouldn't count him out as far as leading the team in receiving yards.
He's doing his best to own up to the mistake. Of course he was embarrassed at some point but now he's trying to face it. Trust me, he regrets it but he's also learned a lot about a lot of things (and people) after dealing with this.
That would be the best-worst day ever if the Steelers draft him LOL!!
If they get rid of Scott and get a coach in there that is committed to developing the young talent Russell will be fine. Maybe Luke Walton? Who knows, but Scott has to go. The team is going nowhere fast this year and he wants to jerk the young player's minutes around. I'm ok with the idea of not allowing the young guys to be arrogant or whatever it was Russell did. But before that he never committed to letting the guys play through their mistakes. That has to happen in order for them to reach their potential. The front office like previously stated by others is a big issue too. I wish the best for Russell and hope he reaches his potential there or elsewhere.
I agree there. That made it perfect.
Anytime someone is in a situation where they are salty the Jordan Cry Face will apply! It's now a timeless tradition LOL!!
True on all fronts. The adjustment with giving Draymond Green a bigger role was key as well.
The Warriors fired Mark Jackson after 2 straight playoff appearances. Why? Because they didn't like HOW he did things. Steve Kerr is hired and they immediately win the title. Not saying the Cavs will definitely win it all but this is a similar situation to the Warriors. The only difference is the timing, which was strange. Other than that, it proves that winning doesn't cure everything. You have to be comfortable its the total direction of the team or else you will fall short in the Finals again. Good move but strange timing.
I disagree but no slaughter! It's your opinion and you're entitled to it. I think he could be at some point but just not right now. Also, I think what our preferences are for a PG is what causes us all to have varying opinions. For instance, I love pure pass first PG's. Mainly, guys that can get you near 10 assists a game while also putting up points. So my opinion is slanted towards those guys. I don't feel Curry is there but for a good reason. He is the best shooter I have ever seen! Plus, Draymond is the engine for that team. I might get slaughtered for that one LOL!
I agree man. Honestly, the argument can be made for him to be anywhere from 2-4 (he or Isaiah being 3 or 4). Nothing lower than that.
Curry is an excellent player but if he makes this list at all it should be in the 8-10 range. He shouldn't be higher than Kidd, Tiny Archibald (not listed!), Tony Parker, Isiah Thomas and I haven't even got to the guys already ahead of him on this list. He could be one of the best players, let alone PG's, to do it if he keeps this pace up. They need to just slow down a bit and watch how things take place!
Bosa was a joy to watch the past 3 years. I believe that the production he provided will be done by committee as opposed to one guy being as good as he was. Hubbard and Lewis will be really good next year. I also think that Holmes is one to watch. As far as the inside, Hill, Munger, and Sprinkle will be good. They just need the reps. I've always heard good things about those guys so next year is their chance to put it all together. Overall, the line play will be really good and the rotations will resemble what the coaches have really wanted the past few years. It's hard to rotate when you have All Americans who you trust to get the job done. For next year, that really isn't the case. So, I expect to see more rotation and good enough production. It may not be as great as we've gotten used to the past few years but it will be good.
I've been waiting on Thad to make him the full time PG all season. He's one of those guys that you hand the keys over to and let him go. He's been small all his life so he can adjust to the size of the opposition. I say let him in there, let him make his mistakes, and watch how this team will blossom with him running the show.
Adolphus is a great young man. How you bounce back from adversity, self induced or otherwise, is ultimately how you will be judged. I hope that everyone continues to support him.
I would love to see Ward vs GGG.
Instant fireworks! I hope it happens.
I agree about GGG being at the top P4P. He just needs that one good victory against a Canelo or Cotto to legitimize it in everybody's eyes. I like Terence Crawford for the P4P rankings too. He needs to beat some more guys at 140 or move up to that crowded 147 class to really bring it home. When you can come in the ring at like 170, there is no need for a catchweight! But you're right, he probably will ask just so he can drain him out as much as possible.
It's a really good matchup IMO but I think Canelo wins by UD or late stoppage. His youth and improved boxing ability will probably be the difference, though Cotto has looked great recently. Canelo vs GGG would be the best fight (PPV wise) that could be made. GGG just demolishes guys but Canelo has proven to be pretty tough. I hope it happens.
Exactly! It's there and we need to take advantage.
More: WR Screens and Slants. Also targets to the TE in the middle of the field
Less: Obvious Brax run plays. Don't eliminate them but find a better way to run them.
DJ, you aren't missing much with Red Lobster. However, if you do like seafood, don't leave this earth without trying Pappadeaux.
I think Cardale will be really good on Saturday. Hopefully the coaches call some plays that puts him at ease in the early going.
Excellent article Tim! Although I enjoy watching him play football, I really enjoyed watching him play basketball even more. His first points as a freshman playing Varsity was a dunk off of the opening tip...in the first game! I will also never forget the 3's he hit in the State Championship game and the tip dunk to close that game out...the way Coach Mitch had those guys playing ball was really fast and furious. Not to mention his AAU team with Coach OB. I have stories for days! Back to football LOL, I am so happy that he is having a great season and I'm very proud of the young man that he has become on and off the field.
2X Player of the Year (Division 2 & 3) but not Mr. Basketball. Should've been though!
The 2X Big 10 Offensive Player of The Year, Quarterback of the Year, and Silver Football Award winner is catching passes for us....sometimes you just have to let stuff sink in. This is amazing. It really speaks to the culture that Coach Meyer has developed and it says a lot about the young men on this team. I am happy for Braxton and I have enjoyed watching him!
