  1. He helps immediately. The 2020 class wasn't good at running back. Stacked at receiver. Might have to air it out more this season...
  2. Just signed number one running back in the nation. Number one ranked class but its early... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/ohio-state-football-recruiting-treveyon-henderson-five-star-rb-in-2021-class-commits-to-buckeyes/amp/
  3. Man, if the Falcons had Watson throwing those deep darts to Julio and Ridley, they would be unstoppable, especially with Gurley back there. They could run playaction, pocket roll outs, RPO plays, defense wouldn't be able to stop them... Buys pocket time, launchs a DART deep for the six...
  4. I was about tbe only one defending Sark WHILE HE WAS COACHING THE OFFENSE. Made several threads about it and even predicted that he would be missed. I wasn't caught up in the Shanahan hugging and instead looked at the great job that Sark was doing...
  5. Patriots stay getting great players...
  6. Maybe he feels he can win with less payroll going to a core group of players...
  7. Fitz is THE comparison. Dude is one of the most turnover prone quarterbacks ever and stay keeping a STARTING position. Dude shouldn't even get back up gigs but gets that too...
  8. Houston traded the franchise receiver, routinely rated in the top two at his position in the whole league for less than market value. There is a agenda going on in Houston of some sort, thus the Watson rumors...
  9. Houston traded Hopkins for garbage. Its proven what they would do...
  10. Really? Let the Patriots come with a package that Houston likes and Watson is gone...
  11. They DO get on Fitz's jock. That scrub keep a job in the NFL...
  12. Reminds me of when Chip Kelly went into Philadelphia and got rid of the core of that team. Its a agenda with Houston's coach too and Watson wants out of there because of it...
  13. Football is a team sport. If the Chiefs had HALF a defense in 2018, they would have won the championship that year too...
  14. The Patriots were a NFL created dynasty. Between the cheating and obvious referee calls going their way, come on dude...
  15. Experience has zero to do with style of play...
  16. You just worry about the Dawgs thumping Auburn in prime time yet again...
  17. Considering the volume and difficulty of Trae's 3 point attempts, his average is impressive, I agree there. Luka doesn't take those deep attempts like Trae. We are also in agreement that he has to be more of a playmaker going forward, which he CAN do. Trae has the best handles I've seen SINCE Iverson, so its not me hating on dude. Trae should limit those deep threes to certain spots in the game where he can break a team. Larry Bird for instance was very selective in when he would take 3 point shots. He took them at points in a game to stop a team's rally or just break them down and they give up. Trae should come up the court with PLAYMAKING first as the goal. Make teams start respecting his passing ability FIRST. That will open him up for uncontested deep shots AND stop them from double teaming him late in games. If Pierce and Hawks management can change their way of looking at this and talk to Trae about going in this direction, it would work. Right now he is being encouraged to be a scorer first. He HAS the talent around him to pull back on that and let Reddish, Hunter, Huerter, etc. start flourishing on offense...
  18. I like the alternate logo that Flowery Branch uses for their football team. You take the " FB" off of this and make a slight change to it and you have a whole new logo that aggressive:
  19. put them side by side...
  20. Chargers logo looks the same as the old logo...
  21. Trae is shooting 36 percent. That means he is taking volume shots AND taking them from waaaay out there. Mike D' Antoni has tried this and has YET to win a championship. His Phoenix and Houston teams were LOADED with offensive talent but he couldn't and ISN'T gonna win a championship. James Harden is better than Young with a better supporting cast and aint, isnt and not gonna win a championship. The ugly part of it he (D' Antoni ) is responsible for the NBA going to this style of game: Running up and down the court to take FAST shots, fast 3 pointers, emphasis on the wings and ZERO defense. The Hawks drafted a player that fits THAT mold but doesn't fit the fundamental type of players that they surrounded him with. DeAndre Hunter and Cam Reddish came from fundamental TEAM oriented programs. You don't put them in a situation where the team is built around the type of game the Hawks are trying to play with Young. They would fit better with Boston, Oklahoma, etc. where there are coaches and styles of play that fit what they did in college ( both head coaches came from the college ranks). Its no coincidence that Al Horford had his best years in Boston ( he came from a fundamental program at Florida). https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/28822418/the-problems-trae-young-signature-plays But while those deep-space triples may be his signature play, it's unclear if they are actually helping the Hawks win games. Here's where it gets interesting: When Young misses a 3-point shot, opponents should start licking their chops. Other teams turn Young's missed 3s into points at freakishly high rates. Young misses 64% of his 3s, and opponents grab defensive boards on about 75% of those misses. On the ensuing possessions, as those defenses turn into offenses, they rack up a wild 127 points per 100 possessions, according to Second Spectrum tracking data. Folks, the league average offensive efficiency following a missed 3 is 112. In other words, the Hawks play historically bad defense after their best player misses his signature shot.
  22. And YOU pop up EVERYTIME i post something...
  23. Exactly... The part thats not liked is he told the truth. If Mike Bibby can get called out for not playing defense for the Hawks, Trae Young can too. If Dominique Wilkins can get called out for being a ball hog, then Trae Young can too. The NBA cares about scoring ONLY now, thus players can now take these 3 pointers and dominate the ball to the detriment of building a TEAM...
