Comment 22 Mar 2017

Prior to this thread, I hadn't replied to one of your posts since the 2015 preseason. But hey, whatever fits your narrative.

Sorry we both felt the need to call you out when you so blatantly contradicted yourself. You seem to revert to the same defensive mechanism every time you can't come back with a solid argument because you know you got caught (calling people sock puppets)

Comment 22 Mar 2017

You're telling me you can't name 3 quarterbacks you'd rather have than Terry Bradshaw......? You spent literally the entire thread throwing out INDIVIDUAL STATS to support Burrow over Barrett, and now its "show me the hardware" soooo JT has a few silver footballs and gold pants he'd like to show Mr. Burrow/Haskins/Martell

Comment 22 Mar 2017

And JT is 26-4 as well as 3-0 against Michigan, yet you still find things to argue about him.

I don't read every forum posted, and actually skip a lot of the QB threads because frankly it's just nonsensical arguing, but in my experience its less that people argue JT is a done deal and more people saying JT is a much better QB than you give him credit for. I think the entire community would like to see the best quarterback under center, just most of the community chooses to use Coach Meyer's opinion as their evidence as opposed to your 28 career passes that Joe Burrow has thrown

Comment 22 Mar 2017

Not to mention, Cincy makes a valid point about Cardale. You made these same claims about Cardale > JT prior to the 2015 season then disappeared from the forums when he had the same issues (arguably worse) that JT had in 2016. So forgive the forums if they're a little tired of your antics

Comment 22 Mar 2017

I'm not one of the downvoters who have your stuff removed from the site, but I can confidently say that myself and many others get pretty damn tired of you rehashing the same opinion over and over and over again regardless of whether or not we agree with it. I'd be willing to bet a large portion of the community is fairly annoyed with your 346784297 posts that all somehow conclude that Burrow is a better QB than Barrett

Comment 01 Mar 2017

I currently use the $35/month plan for Vue, which has about 60 channels I believe, and I love it. It doesn't have the local stations but I bought a $15 antenna and have no problem picking up ABC/NBC/FOX/CBS. I am intrigued by the youtube option though and I'll have to do some more research once more detail is available

Edit: I just checked and it looks like the plan I currently use is now $45/month, guess I'm still grandfathered in to the $35 price

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Please point to any post where I have said the 2016 team was awful everywhere but under center. The only thing I've said is JT a better QB the anti-JT crowd consistently paints him to be. Has he struggled at times? Absolutely. But, as I've said countless times, to put the flawed passing game entirely on him is a cop out and demonstrates a lack of understanding of how important each unit is to overall success

Comment 27 Feb 2017

So do none of Johnny Manziel, RG3, Cam Newton, Marcus Mariota, Lamar Jackson's rushing stats in their Heisman trophy winning seasons count either? Pretty sure they all threw the ball plenty effectively and nobody said their rushing stats shouldn't count,. That is an absurd statement not to count rushing yards lol. The yards were gained, by JT Barrett. If his threat to throw was SO low that he had to run, the defense wouldn't allow 89 yards and 2 TDs to the QB through 3 quarters. You can't just discount those yards to fit your narrative that he's "awful"

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Nobody is trying to claim JT is the best QB in the NCAA. You're painting him as an awful QB though which couldn't be further from the truth. You get frustrated with people acting like JT is not at fault for anything, the pro JT crowd is frustrated by people like you who seem to think OL and WR play had absolutely nothing to do with his poor 2016 performance. This article hit the nail on the head, each unit is partially to blame for the flawed passing game. Not JT specifically, not only the OL and WR units. All three.

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Oh I agree completely, but while JR is out I wouldn't be surprised to see a few minutes of this lineup to keep Kyrie's shooting ability on the floor

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Games are won and lost in the trenches. Give me Garrett or Allen all day at 1, not sure if there's an OT worthy of number 12 pick so I could understand going secondary with that pick, but not at number 1

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Don't be surprised to see the Cavs experiment down the stretch of the regular season with Deron at the 1 and Kyrie running the 2 to see how effective that lineup could be at getting Kyrie open looks from 3. I wouldn't be shocked to see them try this for 5 ish minutes a night once Williams is officially on board just to see how it works as a curveball lineup in the playoffs

Comment 27 Feb 2017

Against Michigan he was 13/21 for 176 yards and a TD through the air and 89 yards and 2 TDs on the ground.... IN THREE QUARTERS

If you extrapolate those stats to a full game, JT ends the game at:
17/28 (61%) 234 yards, 118 yards rushing

Dude put up 250 total yards in 3/4 of a game against UM, I'm not sure how the qualifies as looking "awful"

Edit: CG_Blitz beat me to it

Comment 24 Feb 2017

D Will is 6'10" so I mean yeah a 6'11" Durant could still theoretically "shoot over him" but most people who cover Durant are giving up 3-4 inches, where as Williams could get just as high as Durant does when he goes up for a shot and have a much better chance to disrupt it

Comment 24 Feb 2017

I think Derrick Williams, should he stay on the roster through the playoffs, is the perfect fit to cover KD. He excels at covering guards off the pick and roll due to his length and athleticism, and I think that would be able to bother Durant as he wouldn't just be able to shoot over him or beat him off the dribble. The only question would be is D Will's offense enough to keep him on the court long enough to make an impact on the series.

Comment 16 Feb 2017

Eh, Ohio is consistently deeper once you get out of the top 10. It's pretty even with maybe a slight edge to Ohio 1-10, but 10-50 tends to favor Ohio athletes a little more. And based on total "blue chip" prospects taken in the last few years, Ohio ranks 5th behind Texas Florida Cali and Georgia, while Alabama sits at 7th.
