  1. That's actually not true. The Pacers have proven they can win without him. They are 33 and 20 without him since he's been a Pacer. Sabonis even has a better defensive rating than Myles does this year AND can actually score and rebound as well. I don't think it's much of coincidence that with Sabonis getting starter minutes he's EASILY shown he's the all around much better player. The comparison? 4 years in the league(s) and still pretty much the same players they were in college, probably wouldn't get much in a trade for either one, and both are making ~18M this year. It doesn't get any more comparable than that... Myles' and Jacoby's ships have sailed. It's time to move on.
  2. I would bet there are a good handful that have a lot of interest in him in the 1st, with the Colts being one of them.
  3. Love will have to go into the draft with a broken throwing arm for him to go in the 2nd. I'm pretty sure his reasoning for declaring was because he was given 1st round grades by NFL scouts/personnel.
  4. He's not even near the top for big's in the league let alone player(s). A couple blocks/g don't equate to being a "good" defensive player just like JB completing a few 20+ yard passes doesn't make him a "good" passer. However, you'll make excuses for one but trash the other..
  5. The same Oklahoma that got beat by KState? The same Oklahoma that struggled against Baylor.. twice? That Oklahoma? Hurts is a bum and got booted from Alabama because he couldn't win a big game. I don't see that changing..
  6. Do you mean like how you, and the rest of the Myles fan club, want to give Myles Turner more time to develop after the 4, roughly average, years he's had?
  7. Or JK Dobbins... Bigger version of Hines and can handle 20+ carries a game
  8. They are both ~6'2 at 195'ish. Ceedee looks like he's closer to 200. Regardless, when does a kids weight mean ANYTHING when it comes to talent and producing? They are 19/20 year-old kids, they aren't done growing, and will get bigger if the choose to..
  9. I personally don't want a receiver in round 1 this year, but if Luck were still QB it would be intriguing. They are top-20 NFL talent for a reason, opinions aside..
  10. Kaepernick wasn't close to what Mahomes was as a passing QB in college.
  11. I'm pretty sure MOST people had no idea Mahomes father was a MLB pitcher until it was said when he was drafted. The kid had serious arm talent in both baseball and football, and that's what caught the "professionals" attention.
  12. I thought to myself last year, when they picked up Tannehil, if he gets his chance over Mariotta that Tennessee team will be much better. I don't think Tannehil is a top-10 guy, but given better than he had in Miami, he could be very serviceable. I agree, I think Tennessee could end up winning the division.
  13. But he really can't. Don't let his play in the B12 fool you. He got ousted in Alabama because he couldn't pass, Alabama went full pro-style for Tua, and the rest was history for Jalen. He plays in a predominantly spread/first read offense, and if his running lanes aren't there right away, everything goes down hill for him. Mobile QB's help, but it's still a heavy pocket passing league, and I don't think many teams are going to rebuild their offensive schemes for this guy. He will more than likely have to adapt to a pro-style offense, and that's where I think his value drops off immensely. LSU, like Georgia 2 years ago, is going to expose him IMO..
  14. He literally just learned how to throw the football this year. Alabama went to a heavy pro-style offense for Tua, and that left Hurts WAY behind and out of Alabama. So, of course he's going to look good in a spread/first read type of offense and playing within the B12. If his first read is gone and he can't run, everything goes down hill in a hurry for him. LSU is going to expose Hurts pretty badly IMO. Sure, people will point to Lamar for a comparison, but Lamar was GREAT for 3 years, and was already a good passer. However, I'm not sure how many teams will want to completely rebuild their offense to make him comfortable and make it as easy as possible for him to play QB in the NFL. I wouldn't draft Hurts with any of our late picks...
  15. Lol and the SEC wasn't? The SEC is still playing FCS schools.. Ohio State's win metrics are better than LSU's, but I guess now Ohio State will have to go beat Clemson. Oklahoma isn't that good so LSU shouldn't have a problem with them.
  16. Haha no.. not with that %show in Washington. I cringed when Washington took him.
  17. OSU has more wins against top-25 opponents and a much larger margin of victory too.. LSU gave up over 30 points and 600 yards to an Ole Miss team who can't throw a football and 38 points to a 3 win Vanderbilt team. Ohio State is the more complete/dominant team...
  18. They aren't going to tank, and he can't play defense anyways. Sorry, but chasing down backside defenders and getting blocks from behind isn't defense. Lebron does the same %, and gets called out on it so Myles shouldn't be an exception to that either. He's not athletic enough to guard the good 4's and to damn light/soft to guard the good 5's, so where is he playing defense? His whole body of work is average. 18M/yr for an 11 and 6 guy? At least the Pacers got a bargain for paying Sabonis that price. He's not Durant. He has no business hanging out around the 3 pt line and taking "8 3s a game". I've mentioned numerous times, he has the ability to be a Garnett-type of player. The skill-set is there, but the soft * mentality is holding him WAY back. Until Myles lets his sack drop and he starts being the man among boys, he's going to continue being the same average Myles he's been the last 4 years. This is as good as it gets for him. He's literally the Jacoby Brissett of the Pacers.
  19. I really hated to see Brian Shaw go as an assistant. He'd be the first guy I'd look to for HC if he wanted it.
  20. And the last 2 minutes of the game tonight was awful. Warren had the hot hand and he drives and turns the ball over. Shoot the ball, that's a routine 10 footer. Brogdon got dribble happy, and indecisive, which he does at times. Lamb also had turnovers that just can't happen in a close game, late, like that. AND that last inbounds play, that should have been a 5 second violation, was absolutely bad. 9 seconds and you're trying to inbound the ball to Myles? Come on Nate. Whoever drew up that play needs smacked on the head with the play board. That just can't happen...
  21. I'd love to send him and a first, hell probably more, to NY for Julius Randle. The money is relatively close and we really need a strong 4 next to Sabonis.
  22. And a true "big"/double-double machine in Sabonis in the starting rotation..
  23. The team is starting to gel... Getting Dipo back should definitely kick the team into another gear. I'm feeling a lot better about the bench depth too.
