I came into the series thinking Toronto is the better team but the results haven't show that until Tuesday.
Brooke Lopez and Niko Mirotic ..George Hill?
We love Hill in Indy but he's never done what he's doing for the Bucks.
Marc Gasol is a great player..I dont know why he was so shy and hesitant in the first two games.
Player for player..Toronto should be winning
And here is the actual NFL draft profile that was alluded to, but NOT linked. I'm linking it.
And, Kelly had a solid draftable grade and was called a possible low-level starter. So, clearly he might also be considered a decent back-up, which is all anyone is talking about here.
Kelly's profile. Not a first rounder, but not a camp body either. Possible Brissett replacement in 2020 if he leaves.
The second part is correct(perceived pass threat usually makes opponents send less people in the box and create more advantageous run situations), the first part about having elite RB - I'm not sure about. I mean... sure... if you can just snap your fingers and have an elite RB for the same money and without spending premier assets ... sure... have at it. I'm not sure having elite RB is worth investing big asset(1st... maybe even 2nd round pick? or huge contract). Generally the factors by importance for your run game go something like this:
1. Quality of your OLine run blocking
2. Quality of your pass game
3. Quality of your running back
It's not "not important", but it's probably not worth the capital you need to invest in order to achieve it.
Sucks, but probably for the best honestly. He responded to the trolls and that only keeps them coming back.
I wouldn't even have a twitter if I was a professional athlete honestly. Then again I don't have one even as a regular guy. I get actors/actresses having them to promote their brand and because fan popularity is so important there, but for athletes it only seems to be a distraction or downfall.
