Bosa = big loss, hard to sugarcoat

Wilson = can be electric at times, but we still rolled in the postseason without him

Marshall = versatility will be missed, but expect Samuel and Miller (and possibly Campbell) to be dynamic at H-back

C-Smith = one of the most inconsistent players on the team, outstanding special teams player, potential to replace Devin's role at WR

^ My CliffNotes honest #takes. We'll still win, but it won't be easy. Young guys will get time to shine!

Couldn't imagine my own child battling cancer... I'd be an absolute mess. So much respect for Devon and Leah Still.

That's a lie. You told me at one point in another post, "Coming from a Cavs fan (referring to me)...", which comes off as a jab and dare I say condescending much? I just don't understand the point you're trying to make. Congrats on being a Lakers fan and being more knowledgable (or whatever) than the rest of us.

Back when I had my Golden Retriever, it made me sick to my stomach every time I saw her in pain, so I know it can be hard on the owner. Hope your friend is back to full health soon!

My hopes aren't high with Gary. TTUN hired his high school coach, on top of Peppers and Bushell-Beatty being former HS teammates of Gary. They'll need all of the stud recruits they can get if they want to catch up to the Urban Express.

I tend to agree that Okafor is going to be a bust (in terms of where he is projected). I think he'll be an elite low post scorer, but he really isn't anything special otherwise. Awful free throw shooter, average defender at best, average rebounder given his size, limited athletically, etc. Anyone else agree or am I dropping a #hot #take?

In regards to our boy, Russ, I will be happy if he goes anywhere but New York (basically hope he's a top 3 pick, which he should). I guess he and Melo would be fun to watch, but that team is trash otherwise. Wolves, Lakers and Sixers all have some raw, but very talented young players that should make DAR's life a bit easier down the road.

Can't go wrong with any of the 3 QBs, IMO. Each one gives a defensive coordinator problems in different ways. Unique situation.

Barrett: fantastic at reads, accurate, most "pure" QB

Miller: possibly the best athlete in college football, a guy that athletic has to see the field or else his eligibility is being wasted

Jones: all of the physical tools in the world, highest potential of the bunch as an NFL QB

I'll add this about Barrett: Players seem to absolutely respect JT. He's got that silent, but bold charisma that seems infectious. I think people sleep on how impressive it is that he broke Drew Brees' B1G total touchdown season record as a redshirt freshman. Crazy to think we could have as many as 3 more seasons of this guy. I love all 3 QBs and can't wait to see how Urban utilizes each one in the future. With the (inevitable) blowouts coming this season, whoever gets second string honors should still see a good bit of playing time, so it's not like the winner of the job will be hogging snaps.
