favorite non colts player


Recommended Posts

Saquon Barkley. Best RB in Football IMO (ok maybe 2nd best, Henry is a beast), I love watching him play and he is a great down to earth guy. I was hoping the Colts could draft him, he was 1st on my Colts draft board in 2018, by the way Nelson was 2nd though lol, Chubb was 3rd. I am happy with Nelson but love Barkley too.

Barkley is a hell of a player but there's no player in that draft I would take over Nelson. 

 

He's already the best OL in the league IMO.

That was my Colts draft board going into the draft = Barkley 1, Nelson 2, Chubb 3. Of course I am glad we got Nelson. I knew Barkley would be gone anyway by #6. I jumped for joy when the Broncos took Chubb at #5 because I figured Nelson was our's then.

Non Active players, Magic will probably always be my favorite. Peyton was a Colt so he doesn't count. Reggie Miller is way up there up too. 

I wish Reggie won a title he was always fun to watch

if you liked watching floppers fall to the ground when barely touched I guess he’s the one to watch.

He was one of the greatest playoff clutch performers ever and I would say a top 3 3pt shooter of all-time along with Curry and Allen. He also put fear into the Bulls during the 1998 ECFinals, Bulls got real lucky to win that series. It took all 7 games to do so.

And I hated him because that too!  - for what he did to the knicks not the bulls- 

 

i did like how they would joke about his sister being the better player.

8 points in 8 seconds in Game 1 of the 95 playoffs was the greatest thing I have ever seen. We will never see that again and it happened in 1995. Reggie played like Jordan against the Knicks.

OP was very very correct.

 

I am a Colts fan who happens to dislike the Pacers to some extent. I remember watching a game back in 1999 (when I was a kid) and he ran into a 100% stopped Clarence Weatherspoon, flopped, and bounced off. Officials called a foul on Weatherspoon despite the screen being 100% legal and him being fully stationary.

 

Plays like that were very very frequent of Reggie; along the same lines of Vlade Divac and Anderson Varejao.

That is also being narrow minded. 

There are quite a few other things in Miller's career besides your perception of that. 

All the great players got away with some sort of the bending of the rules. 

A few examples - 

Jordan was never called for traveling (or carrying) and no one was allowed to guard him

Bird would do things considered dirty like pinch another player hard enough to leave bruising. 

Shaq got away with charging on a regular bases.

That's part of what pushed me away from the NBA.   Once you become a star, you get to play the game differently than the other players.  Mostly turned me off when the announcers hopped on board with it.   They would say stuff like - He's earned the right to get that call.

You and @Fluke_33 must think LeBron is a queen then and not a king because all he did vs the Pacers in the 2013 ECFinals was flop his way to a Game 7 win haha

Yeah, I don't watch nearly as much NBA as I used to for this reason alone. Rarely watch any regular season. Although it's worse in the playoffs.

 

Not anything new, but just seems like WWE sometimes.

LeBron flopping is about the worst thing in sports.

 

Seconded by James Harden flopping. Dont know how many times he is "fouled" shooting a 3. Ridiculous.

James Harden makes me sick with the calls he gets, it is beyond ridiculous. He just throws his body into people and gets the call.

Softest playing player in the league and leads in FT attempts. Smh.

 

Another reason I have scaled back on watching NBA.

To me the 80's/90's and early 2000's was real basketball. You could foul hard and not get kicked out of a game and hand check too. Even in 2002 I remember Kobe getting clobbered a lot by the Kings in the WCFinals and Kobe just took it and never flopped. Nobody got kicked out of games, etc.. Some of the old Celtics/Pistons series from the 80's were just nasty dirty :funny: so were Pacers/Knicks in the 90's.

I am a bit partial to the Celtic players on your since Larry Bird’s HS Coach was the PCHS Coach in the 70s and 80s

Reggie is obv a great player.  Doesn’t mean he wasn’t an all time flopper. If you can’t acknowledge that then there’s another poster whose being narrow minded.  If you can’t figure out who it is...  (this is tongue in cheek)

    • And you got beat by Florida International and Louisiana Tech last year......    But, I mean, The U does have the highest paid players. From the Pell Grant fraud, to Shapiro handing out cash and cars, I would hope they put more in the NFL than most teams. Add on the hidden drug test to keep players eligible...    Not sure why Miami's history of NFL draft picks is relevant in general, or has any bearing on why you're football takes are any better than anyone else?
    • Another reason it doesn’t bother me if the Colts don’t make the playoffs is they’ll get shredded by the Chiefs. That goes for the rest of the AFC.
    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   Ever heard of a guy named Edgerrin James? Ask Peyton Manning and Jim Irsey who is Edgerrin James? LOL (as the legend has it, Edgerrin was bigger, and faster than Sequon Barkley. Just to make a long story short)   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
