  1. I don't even think Hurts is that great of an athlete, at least not from a "running/elusive QB' perspective. Obviously Tua wasn't asked to do what Jalen did because he was that much better of a passing QB, as well as also not being as physically built like Jalen was either. However, I did admire how Tua was more hesitant to run, when he could have, and decided to continue plays from the pocket. I also don't think its fair to compare completion % when one was good at completing intermediate/deep throws (15+) across all 3 sections(L, M, R) where the other was really only good 10 yards and in and was borderline awful on throws outside of the numbers. Now I couldn't find Hurts' passing charts for this year at Oklahoma, but having watched him I didn't notice much of a difference in his actual play there compared to Alabama. Of course Riley's offense is very QB friendly and BIG12 defenses are far from good, so certain % across the field may have been better, but I doubt it was because of him having gotten better.
  2. Hurts played with those same guys and isn't half the QB Tua is... He's as good as advertised and helped make those "elite" players even better
  3. I wouldn't. He's so far behind as a passing QB, and he's not even that elusive or good as a "running QB". Him playing in a defensively weak BIG12 has people fooled. He fits well in a one read passing/read-option college offense, but he's not even close to NFL ready. As a Buckeye guy, I watched a guy who was exactly like him, and honestly better, for 4 years in JT Barrett. He went undrafted, and that's where I see Hurts. I want nothing to do with a QB who practically wets himself under pressure, is overly inaccurate, and can't even read college level defenses. Trace McSorley was also a QB who was very similar to him and he went undrafted as well. Just watch this years LSU game, that's who he is and will be... 2nd and 3rd round? Not a fn chance..
  4. Sorry I just cannot get on board with ANY scenario where Hurts is drafted by the Colts, especially where he's WAY overdrafted in this scenario...
  5. That would take effort for him to have to go and look it up.. He'll probably ask you to go do it for him..
  6. I'd rather give McAfee another tryout for QB before Hurts
  7. No coincidence he transferred from Alabama to there.
  8. You've clearly never watched the guy play outside of some highlights. JT Barrett was a much better college QB than Hurts, same read-option/poor passing QB, and he went undrafted. Lamar is going to be it. Teams aren't going to waste the time reinventing their offense for a gimmick player, who's play-style will be forced to change. Sure it will last a season or 2, just like we seen with Vick, Cam, RG3, but eventually, and quickly, defenses adapt and force them into being the QB's they aren't used to being. I'll tell you what, I'll give you the first 5 rounds and I will take the last 2. If Jalen is drafted before the 6th, I'll change my avatar to that of Jalen.
  9. He'll likely go way late, or undrafted, so I don't think we'll have to worry about that.
  10. Outside of Embiid, I'm not sure there is a better big man in the East right now.
  11. Well.. it is pretty rare, but it's all good man. I'm sure he appreciates you cheerleading for his average * Did you miss the Bucks game?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
  16. And a true "big"/double-double machine in Sabonis in the starting rotation..
  17. 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.
  18. And Bitadze needs to continue to get minutes, even when Myles comes back.... 10/9 and 4 blocks in 25 minutes? Keep giving that kid minutes...
  19. The Pacers really need a true PF... TJ, as you said, being the next guy off the bench, let alone starting, just isn't going to cut it. Sabonis and Bitadze at the 5, I'm more than comfortable with, even if they have to play together like they did late in the game tonight, but that 4 spot is a major weakness.
  20. Shocker... soft a'' Myles is hurt again.. Meanwhile, Sabonis went to work with 29/8/4 and the Pacers got their first W.
  21. Ahh... such a great way to see the season start off with a Lebron and Laker L....
