It's unfortunate that everyone basis winning championships on having a great franchise or a great same core team. That is just the business of sports. I have been a Cubs fan since 1984 and up until they won it all in 2016, I got teased/trolled a lot by my friends and on other sites. It took a championship to shut everyone up and people still throw in it took 108 years . The Pacers have had one of best franchises since 1998 but it gets overlooked because we haven't won a championship. Main reason why we haven't won 1 is because of Michael Jordan and the Bulls, then Kobe and Shaq. In the PG years - we had to face LeBron and Wade.
1998 - lost in 7 games to Michael Jordan in the ECFinals. Game 7 was close, we win that series we win the Championship IMO.
2000- lost to Kobe and Shaq in the Finals, like anyone in history would've beat that team??
2013 - lost to LeBron and Wade in 7 games in the ECFinals.
-Pacers have been unfortunate to have played against some of the greatest teams ever over the last 20 years. We could have 2 or 3 Championships if not for that. My point is lets just enjoy the games, and things are what they are. We don't have a great team right now but they are good and fun to watch most nights. You guys do realize we are on pace to win 50 games? Some people act like we are a 25 win team the way they post in here. Turner doesn't suck, I like Sabonis better but Turner's defense is priceless. We have 2 good Big's, most teams do not and when Dipo gets to 100% we will be a tough out in the playoffs.
Yeah I agree that Love didn’t rise. Maybe in the eyes of the media and fans, but the scouts already knew what we saw. The 40 time is what really excited me though. 4.68 is Deshaun Watson type stuff who he’ also been comped too. He did miss some throws which was pointed out, but much like at the Senior Bowl he got better as time went on. And the kid went to Utah State after all. He’ll need some polish. Nothing wrong with him needing to sit for a year. Even Herbert needs work. Kurt Warner said what everyone has said about how he looks like he’s aiming the football instead of just letting it go.
But I think he did what he needed to do here. His arm was just as live as Herbert and Eason’s. To be safe, you might need to trade up in front of the Chargers or right behind them if they really like Herbert. But my mind is made up on Love.
I know everyone is intoxicated with Love. I watched the combine myself. Saw him first hand. With that I will say that based on what I saw last night, taking into fact that Kinlaw and the DT's were not on field and that Kinlaw isn't going to participate I believe and knowing Colts needs are also QB and WR, with the 13th pick the Indianapolis Colts select.... CeeDee Lamb!!
Dude reminds me of Nuk! I would grab him in a hot moment. Jeudy looks the part too, but there is just something about Lamb.
Lamb is the #1 WR we have been searching for since Marvin.
You brought up the notion that proximity to UGA makes you more knowledgeable about UGA, and therefore, have greater insights into the dynamics of the team "than just about any body on this forum". I've never ever brought it up because I know it doesn't matter.
But by your measure, my proximity, ( and the number of UGA fans I have to endure) gives me a freaking PHD about it and makes you just a freshman pledge.......Flounder.
Having said that, the useful information gleaned from the combine about Fromm, notably hand size, puts him into the higher risk bucket for me (like Kinlaw's knee), which strengthens my liking for Herbert as the college QB option, (as I've noted, not Fromm) which is only third best behind trading for Carr then Stafford, IMO.
Even TUA and Burrow have risks, both having season generated stats that benefited tremendously from a supporting cast. Golly, Jefferson runs a 4.4, who knew? You know, just do the Mahomes thing, throw the football down field in the area of the fast guy and the fast guy will make you look like you know what you're doing.
